Solar Plexus Chakra

The third chakra is known as the Solar Plexus Chakra, also known as Manipura or Manipuri (said to mean “city of jewels”). It is a red downward pointing triangle within a yellow circle and ten dark blue or black petals that represents this chakra. Yellow is the colour that represents this chakra. Braddha Rudra is the deity of the Solar Plexus Chakra, with the ram being the animal of it.

Found at the naval, the Solar Plexus Chakra deals with one’s emotional state. Fire is the element of this chakra and one’s self-esteem will is often associated with the Solar Plexus chakra. The organs being the stomach, liver and intestines.

If this chakra is overbalanced one can turn very much into a judgemental person, a workaholic whose demanding and a perfectionist. Their emotions can go to the extreme more often then the usual.
An under balance of the third chakra creates a depressive person who lacks confidences, a worrier of what other think. Under balance will create confusion and fear of loneliness.

The colour purple helps deal with an overbalance of the Solar Plexus Chakra while yellow helps an under balance.
Doing belly dancing and conscious breathing helps greatly with the balancing this chakra. Going out and getting sunlight also helps.
