What is the Solar Plexus "Manipura" Chakra?
Known as the third chakra and the naval chakra, it's located at the navel center.
This chakra is about the inner working of who you are.
It is responsible for your feelings of confidence, self esteem, and your sense of self.

Manipura chakra is associated with the color yellow, and is represented by the element of fire.
In Sanskrit the word manipura breaks down as 'mani' meaning 'gem', and 'pura' meaning 'city' or 'place'. The gem of the city, or in terms of the body, 'the shining gem in the center of your body'.
Balancing the solar plexus chakra allows you to experience a strong sense of self.
Your ideals are clear; you know who you are, what you want, and set out to make it happen.
You recognize your strength, your vitality, and have a strong understanding of yourself. Validation from outside influences are no longer needed to prove your worth.
Work and play become more meaningful without the need of acceptance from others, because you know you are worthy of a good life.
A balanced Solar Plexus Chakra can feel like:
Feeling in control of your life's direction.
Confidence and positive self esteem.
Maintaining strong boundaries for yourself, and with others.
Having feelings of accomplishment.
An unbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra can leave you:
Angry, overly aggressive, and exhibit controlling behavior.
Fear based, unsure, with lack of direction.
Living in lack and scarcity.
Always feeling like a victim.
Never feeling "good enough", having imposter syndrome, or like you just don't fit in.
Being out of balance in the Manipura chakra may give in to a sense of powerlessness over your own life and decisions making skills.
Physical signs of distress can show up as digestive issues.
Unreleased and undealt with trauma may manifest and hold itself in the solar plexus chakra.
As trapped energy of the solar plexus chakra is activated and moving out of the body, you may experience a burst of energy, creating a new found sense of purpose. An instinctual knowing of what is needed for you to be whole, and in harmony.
Your communication skills may become clearer, inching you closer to fulfilling your needs and desires, without the ego getting in the way.
