Third chakra, the power chakra- Manipura is all about inspiration and initiative. It also can lead people to egocentric directions involving controlling others to serve our own interests. Either you want to be the person who works qualities of kindness, charity or selfless service or you want to be the “top dog” or one of those people who claim “they are doing good for everyone” or “doing God’s Work” most of us have the potential from moving on beyond self consumed perspectives. If you have willingness, determination, drive to reach your goals opening this chakra will definitely lead you upward. There is much more about the chakra that is very deep and I suggest finding a credible source and reading about it. I work on this chakra on Sundays. There is more of a background regarding how certain days line up with certain chakras. These are just a few ways to start working on this chakra today:

If you have stones: these are stones you want to wear today or lay on your body while meditating:

  • citrine
  • amber
  • sunstone
  • yellow jasper

Put them in teas, incense around the room, diffusers.

There are many ways to meditate. but one simple way you can try today.

Since the goal is to have an opened and activated solar plexus chakra, try imagining a bright yellow flower opening over your navel. A glowing golden ball of light or a burning flame are also good meditations for opening Manipura. Imagine those for a few minutes at a time throughout the day while taking deep, calming breaths.
