Solar Plexus

Manipura, the Solar Plexus Chakra, is also known as the power chakra. It is symbolized by a lotus with ten petals and it relates to the color yellow.

Solar Plexus

The Manipura rules personal power, will, and autonomy. It is the center where personality & identity is formed and emotions, intuition, & psychic energies are integrated into the self.

The Manipura is the center of your self-esteem, your willpower, self-discipline, as well as warmth in your personality.

It is all about who you are.

A person with an open and balanced Manipura values herself and her work, is confident in her ability to do something well, loves and accepts herself, is willing to express herself in a powerful way, knows that she has the freedom to choose to be herself and direct her own life.

When it is blocked, you lack courage, have low self-esteem, and feel stagnant with little or no vitality.

Balancing the Manipura allows us to feel cheerful, vital, strong & alive.

Gemstones and minerals are  energy forms containing a similar crystalline structure as the human body. Crystals amplify energy and can be programmed (e.g. computer chips and watches and your intentions). Wearing gemstone jewelry or placing gemstones and minerals in your environment is a simple way to absorb the stone or mineral’s healing vibrations

AROMA: BERGAMOT ESSENTAIL OIL is associated with self-love & self-acceptance. It has nurturing, calming and refreshing properties. It releases pent-up emotions and helps soothe anxiety, tension & depression; relieving despair, self-criticism & self-judgment. It offers optimism and hope. Apply (diluted in a carrier oil 1=4) to the area just above the navel.

MEDITATION: simply meditate in the sun focusing on connecting with your personal power.

Outstanding Orange Sacral Chakra MonDAY

OUTSTANDING ORANGE Sacral Chakra

Visualize your OUTSTANDING swirling bright orange sacral chakra two inches below your belly button. Breathe in orange to recharge this second chakra. Release negative emotions with each exhale as your orange energy gets brighter and brighter.

As you know, each of us has an energetic field that encases our body and internal organs. This energy, called bioenergy or chi, is responsible for life as it fulfills our need for subtle energy. The vortexes existing in this energetic field are called chakras. The chakras act as points of connection between our physical and non-physical (astral, extraphysical) bodies, enabling energies to flow from one of these vehicles of manifestation to the other. They are the means by which we absorb energy from and externalize energy to the environment, and exchange energy with others; therefore, they form the core system through which we sustain our energy levels, vitality and health.

When our OUTSTANDING swirling orange Sacral Chakra is open and balanced, we have an ability to take risks, we are creative, we are committed, are passionate, sexual and outgoing.  How’s that for awesomeness?!?
SOUNDS: Hum or whistle Musical Note D, or “Re” (ray) on the scale to vibrate with the Sacral Chakra’s energy.  Meditation Music: [1 Hour] Healing Tambura – Sacral Chakra Meditation Music | Taanpura & Harp Sounds Meditative Mind – Meditation Music

AROMAS: Jasmine EO, orange EO and Bergamot EO or  Essential Oil Spring Blend from March 20th

CRYSTALS: Citrine

MEDITATION:

Chant: “Vam”

Spend as long as possible in silent meditation

Close your eyes and take deep breath
Be aware of your body–do a scan of your body to find any area of tension. Breathe into them and release them
As you empty your mind of all other thoughts, feel the fluidity within your body and be reminded that you are a sensory being feeling, creating and enjoying the OUTSTANDING creative juiciness  of life.
Feel your body, while still on the outside, flowing like water on the inside full of potential.
This potential creates a nurturing sensation that cradles you. You are moved by its gentle rocking flow.
As you are saturated by the feeling of flowing potential imagine it flowing through the your body. This is the force behind your creativity and passion. It gives you a warm and fluid sensuality that is attractive and fills you with a vibrancy that resonates in all that you do
AFFIRMATION: I am a sensory being full of OUTSTANDING creative potential. “I embrace life with passion, joy and happiness. My senses are alive, well and connected.”

YOGA
Low Squat (Malasana)—The life lesson in the second chakra involves replacing guilt with forgiveness and acceptance.
This low squat pose focuses on the pelvis and allows you to be open and receptive physically, emotionally, and energetically in order to accept yourself fully.

—Squat with your feet as close together as possible. (Keep your heels on the floor if you can; otherwise, support them on a folded mat.)
—Separate your thighs slightly wider than your torso. Exhaling, lean your torso forward and fit it snugly between your thighs.
—Press your elbows against your inner knees, bringing your palms to together and resist the knees into the elbows. This will help lengthen your front torso.
—To go further, press your inner thighs against the sides of your torso. Reach your arms forward, then swing them out to the sides and notch your shins into your armpits. Press your finger tips to the floor, or reach around the outside of your ankles and clasp your back heels.
–Hold the position for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then inhale, straighten the knees, and stand.
Affirmation: I accept and forgive my OUTSTANDING self.

SEE YA LATER:

Spending time and cultivating your creativity is such an important gift, even if it’s just 15 minutes out of your day. Art is a sacred, meditative act. The marks you make are precious and the quiet time you set aside for yourself is profound. Creativity is not about making a masterpiece, but rather simply showing up at the craft table. Do what makes you smile–whether it’s pushing paint around, cutting some paper, gluing a collage, or watching an art tutorial video. I believe this will seduce your muse out of hibernation and will also send a clear message that you are OUTSTANDINGLY worth it. You are worth your valuable time.

“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”~~Osho

There are thousands of channels
In our consciousness;
It’s up to us
To choose the channel—-Thich nhat hanh

————————

Beneath todays pragmatic, male oriented reality is a whole other world of power that can be reached only through imagination. Inspiration so often comes after a period of reflection, during which the seeds of creativity are planted. It is the feminine trait of contemplation that brings you to the altar of your imagination, the place where all things are possible, for what you imagine is, indeed real. If you can dream it, you can do it. Just ask the Wright brothers; ask any great artists, inventors, musicians, the builders of our world. Even the greatest scientific inventions begin with the dream; they begin with someone saying, “You know what, I have an idea that what we’ve come to think of as impossible is actually quite possible after all.” …..lynnandrews
