“Only Once we are awake, we can realize we were sleeping.”
This avowal works in lot of walks of life. Since we are proceeding with our Series of the Chakras, we will see how it works here as well.
Once our chakras start awaking i.e. staking working in harmony with the universe, we get the opportunity to experience a different aspect of human system. This also gives us the knowledge and experience to get sensitive with our body, and realize how precisely we start understanding its needs. Only once we live through this, we can realize that this aspect was once dormant within us.
Our increase in Yogic knowledge and understanding of how our chakras work is actually the first step of awakening a chakra. We have already taken two steps forward, actually upwards. The Muladhara Chakra (Root Chakra ) and the Swadisthana Chakra (Sacral Chakra)
Today, we are going to talk about the third chakra, the ‘Manipura’ Chakra also commonly referred to as the Solar Plexus.
This chakra is placed about 2 inches above the naval. The mantra for this charka is “Ram” and the color is Yellow. This Chakra works on Personal Empowerment. It governs your will power and self-esteem.
This chakra is also referred to as the power center. The areas of the body this chakra governs are stomach, liver, gall bladder and the nervous system, according to the researches done by the University of Metaphysical Science.
This Chakra also governs the assimilation of food. If the chakra is well balanced, then one will be able to derive great benefits from food one eats. If one does not absorb enough energy from food, irrespective of how much one eats, this reflects an imbalance.
Digestive problems, diabetes, hypoglycemia, constipation and ulcers are also some physical symptoms that may be indicative of a chakra not working well.
On an emotional level, it is responsible for self -confidence, self-worth and self- esteem. Our ability to be, responsible, reliable and in control of our lives is an offering of this chakra.
If your energies move into the Manipura or if they are dominant in Manipura you are a doer in this world, you want to do things. Maybe you’re a businessman, maybe you’re a politician or something where a lot of doing is needed , you are a doer , are Sadguru’s thoughts.
He has also very rightly said “This body can be just a mass of flesh, driven by simple instincts within you, or it can be made into a tremendous instrument; an instrument which can bring the Divine into your direct experience.”
So, let the music begin!
