Third chakra meditation activates and opens your power chakra.
Also called the manipura (city of jewels) chakra, it is the seat of your self and sense of unique identity.
This is the place from where you project your power and charisma into the world.
Fire is the element of the third chakra signifying change or, more aptly, transformation.
Just as fire transforms solid into liquid and liquid into gas, the inner fire helps you transform your life and your world.
Yellow, the color of fire and sun, is the color of the third or solar plexus chakra. A ten petalled lotus is the aureate symbol of the third chakra.
A blocked third chakra could lead to low self-esteem, hyper-sensitivity to criticism and attention seeking behavior. The resultant indecisiveness, poor self-confidence and self-image, and fear of rejection can prevent you from accomplishing important tasks and turning dreams into reality.
On the other hand, an overactive solar plexus chakra can turn you into an arrogant, self-centered power grabber. You end up chasing name and fame to the exclusion of everything else. Soon enough the 'my way or the highway' lifestyle inevitably results in dysfunctional relationships and high levels of stress.
Hypertension, ulcers, insomnia, muscle spasms are some health disorders related to an overloaded third chakra. Sluggishness, poor appetite and digestion, chronic fatigue and weak muscle strength indicate a weakened power chakra.
The following third chakra meditations will help you awaken, align and balance your solar plexus chakra. Do them to re-kindle the 'fire in your belly.'
Awaken the Manipura Chakra
The seed sound or mantra of the Fire element is RAM (pronounced as rum). Chanting this mantra helps activate the chakra.
Agni or Fire Meditation
