Solar Plexus (Manipura)

Sanskrit Meaning:

Manipura (Lustrous Gem)

The Success Chakra

It’s the center of your confidence and ambition. It controls your will power and energy and also gives you the ability to accomplish anything that you may desire. With a strong solar plexus chakra, you can accomplish anything that you wish. Everything you need to be great is already inside of you. You need only to figure out how to access and harness it.

The Solar plexus chakra may become damaged with self doubt or with emotional abuse. If you were ever told you weren’t good enough, pretty enough or smart enough to do something, then yours may be damaged. Anything that brings down your confidence and self respect rather than builds it up.

A damaged solar plexus chakra will have you feeling unremarkable. As though you have no purpose and it doesn’t even matter. A strong, healthy solar plexus chakra will have you feeling like you can take on the world! It’s also sometimes referred to as the source of your warrior energy.

If you feel like you don’t have what it takes, then you should do some things to strengthen your success chakra. Try some of the foods or crystals listed below. Wear some yellow. Bright like the energy of the sun! Repeat the mantras every day. Do all of these things and go out and accomplish everything that you’ve ever dreamed of!

What it teaches

This chakra’s message is choice and that you have one in everything you do. You can choose to be great and go out and accomplish everything you dream of, or you can choose not to and instead sit on the sidelines watching everyone else participate in life.

Everyone and anyone who has ever done anything great is or was just a person. Everyone is just a person. No one is any different than anyone else in their abilities to accomplish anything. It’s just a matter of mindset, confidence and allowing yourself to pursue that which you wish to achieve.

I have come to realize that mostly everyone has the same fears as me. Mostly everyone has self esteem issues. Mostly everyone is afraid of public speaking and mostly everyone is afraid of being a leader. When you realize these things, it makes it easier to take a stand and find the confidence it takes to do great things.

Whether you have the confidence to start working toward your goals is what gives you that “special” quality. The ability to accomplish anything great is just a matter of you deciding that you can and taking steps to do so.
