WHAT’S IN A NAME?
According to the Hindu tradition, ‘Manipura’ is the 3rd chakra or solar plexus of energy within the body. Self-esteem, self-love, self-acceptance, and acknowledgement of your own worth are the foundations of the ‘Manipura’. Representing determination, energy to live life to the full and the courage and confidence to manifest our intentions and desires, Manipura gives a strong sense of who you are and where you are going. The qualities of Manipura allow you to transform inertia into action and movement. It means being proactive rather than reactive. It allows you to meet challenges and move forward in your life. ‘Manipura’ allows you to value, love and accept yourself & be willing to express yourself in a powerful way, knowing that you have the freedom to choose to be yourself and direct your own life.
We must be still. We must slow down. We must breathe deeply. We must listen to ourselves & our bodies. We must bring balance back to our lives. We can then live our ‘Manipura’ Life.
