'Chakra' is a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel' or 'disk', and is an integral thought in Ayurveda, meditation and yoga.

There are seven main chakras in the body - from the base of the spine to the crown of the head - corresponding in location with major nerve centres. These key points are believed to hold a 'vortex' of subtle energy - ideally kept free-flowing and in balance.

Today we will look at the navel chakra, Manipura.

Manipura is located around the navel/solar plexus, and is one of the two chakras of relationships. It is responsible for our personal power and self esteem.

Its colour is yellow, and bija mantra is Ram.

Imbalances in the navel chakra may manifest in:
Low self esteem and/or feeling indecisive.
Anger and/or control issues.
Digestive and/or metabolic problems.
Concerns with the pancreas, liver and/or colon.


To balance the navel chakra, try:
Practising positive and grounding self-affirmations.
Taking a walk in the sun, or sitting in front of a fireplace.
Surrounding yourself with yellow flowers, crystals, and/or enjoying yellow foods.
