Day 3: Solar Plexus Chakra – Manipura
Location: Upper Belly
Essential Oil: Cedarwood
MANTRA OF THE DAY:
“My will and divine will are one. I am connected to the abundant flow of the universe and easily manifest my dreams”
You know when you get nervous as you are about to speak before of a crowd? Your belly is turning and your ego is full front reminding you of everything that could go wrong? YEP, believe it or not, you are harnessing the energy of the Solar Plexus Chakra as you are about to speak your truth and spread knowledge.
This chakra is the dispenser of ‘prana’ or life force in the body. This is where our deepest desires and truths lie. The physical body associated with this chakra is the digestive system. So just going back to basic science here, energy (caloric intake) is what we eat (food) and then the food is used to create energy and fuel our bodies. I have had many discussions about this and encourage you to educate yourself on how important what we fuel ourselves with can be in relation to how we feel physically and what we are absorbing (i.e. chemicals/processed foods vs natural grown yummy goodness).
Tiny Steps You Can Take To Boost Confidence:
– Focus on eye contact with others
– Journal about what you believe in and solidify your truths
– Move (dance, yoga, whatever, find freedom in your physical body)
– Adjust your posture
– Yoga pose: Warrior Pose
– Place your hands over the upper abdomen and sound ‘RAM’
-Get some fuel at the farmers markets (bright natural colors)
It can be easy for us to let life run its course of disappointments and let down expectations, BUT, as we harness the power of the Solar Plexus we can radiate so much more light and love that all the negativity will slowly become unnoticeable as long as you stay positive. Don’t forget to honor your low points though, without them would never know how high on life and happy we are truly capable of being.
Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need in friendships, relationships, work environments, etc. I hope we can come to a day in our society where we remember that we are human and we are on this journey together. Use your will power to make decisions from his part of the body rather than from the ego.
