The city of jewels – Manipura

Manipura what is it?

Manipura is the sanskirt word for the Solar Plexus which is the third chakra represented by the colour yellow.  Yellow is the symbol of the mind, intellect and wisdom. It is a positive magnetic vibration that acts as a counterbalance for irritable conditions of the nervous system.

In earlier post’s I have written about The root (Survival), The Sacral (Creativity/passion) and after the aspects of understanding survival and feeling passion, come’s growth and nourishment which begins right from our Solar Plexus. Located in our midsection above our navel the solar plexus is the centre of willpower, the core of our personality and our identity. While the (2nd) Sacral chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment, the third chakra is all about the belief of who you are.

The solar plexus chakra is associated with the fire element because fire provides warmth and comfort. The main function of this energy centre is to give real strength to move forward and realise personal desires and intentions in the world. This chakra spans a wide emotional area while it provides warmth and comfort it can also cause fear and terror. However, it plays a fundamental role in the development of personal power and it also feeds your direction in life and the actions you need to take to reach your goals.

The life lesson of the Solar Plexus is to develop your inner power by being honest and at peace with yourself .

A Balanced Solar Plexus

A Strong third chakra reflects the ability to move forward in life with confidence and power. It reflects the ability to make conscious choices to choose and to act. The Solar Plexus chakra attributes to our diet and digestion, meaning if you have an unhealthy diet your bound to have an unbalanced Solar Plexus.

A balanced Solar Plexus is very beneficial for many reason’s some of my favourite are that you will notice progress within your personal and spiritual growth and development, you will feel the need to transform into the best version of yourself, your decision-making skills improve and you will feel more independent.

An unbalanced Solar Plexus on the other hand is not so nice with symptoms such as stubbornness, an overwhelming ego, poor health due to a poor diet, poor judgement, lack of confidence, Denial, fear of rejection, fears about physical appearance. In my opinion a Narcissist has an extremely closed, unbalanced Solar Plexus among other chakras.

On one side, a balanced solar plexus chakra makes it easy to find balance between your personal power and harmonious relationships with others; on the other side, an imbalanced third chakra could undermine your self-esteem and social life.

When your Solar Plexus becomes balanced you will show assertiveness, Exert your will in a way that leads to the expected results somewhat effortlessly and have harmonious relationships with whoever you are around.
A balanced Manipura also awakens your conscious mind into learning how to relate to your whole self mentally, physically and spiritually and makes you more conscious of your personal power and how to use your personal power in a balanced way.

Balancing your Solar Plexus

  • Meditate and take part in mindfulness activities: There are many meditations and mindfulness exercises for the solar plexus chakra, one in fact is listed below.
  • Pranayama: Pranayama is control of Breath. “Prana” is Breath or vital energy in the body. On subtle levels prana represents the pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and “ayama” means control. So Pranayama is “Control of Breath”.   Another easy method to balance your solar plexus is by just breathing! Make each breath mindful focusing on breathing life into your solar plexus and any toxins out of your body.
  • Nutrition: Have a healthy balanced diet and you will have a health balance Solar Plexus Chakra. shutterstock_131743070
  • Wear yellow and eat naturally yellow foods: I have posted it many times when talking about how to balance your chakras because it is one of the most obvious, easiest and quickest way to give your chakra a quick energy boost.
  • Meditate after you eat: Because of the Manipura being attributed to the digestive system it helps clear blockages and balance your third chakra if you do a quick meditation after you eat focusing on your solar plexus.

The secret to the life you always wanted – Creative visualization

I have changed my life for the better using creative visualization and I believe this is one of the best tool’s to manifest anything you want. A lot of  Athletes, entrepreneurs, actors, doctors and students are all known to regularly use creative visualization… so what is the hype about and how can it benefit us? 

Creative visualization, what is it?

Creative visualization is a mental technique that uses the imagination to make dreams and goals come true. Creative visualization is a powerful technique. If applied correctly, the power of visualization can transform your life. It will help you in attracting to your life anything you wish. Creative visualization uses the power of the mind, and is the power behind every success.

By visualizing vivid scenarios you can carry out, you condition your subconscious mind to act upon it. This is because the subconscious mind is unable to tell the difference between a real experience and something that is just imagined, as scientific research suggests.

Mastering creative visualization gives you control over your thoughts at the subconscious level. While there are several ways to programme the subconscious mind, visualization is the most effective and its results the most rapid.

Realms Of The Mind

 

What the mind believes the mind achieves, What you visualize, you can carry out, What you think, you become, What you concentrate your attention on, you can attract.

How to visualize?

Set yourself a meaningful goal, something that is going to serve you positively, not a goal that is going to feed into low dimensional emotions like the ego.

Once you have a clear idea of your goal set the mood. It’s vital that you are in a relaxed and positive state of mind when you attempt creative visualization.

Once you’re feeling relaxed enter a meditative state, use any regular meditation deepening or count down tool to reach a deep level of mind.  For most people, all that you need is a few minutes spent focusing on slow, steady breathing.

Once your mind feels quiet and still, start creating an image of the thing you want, taking as much time as you need to build up all the details.  Try to make the environment as realistic as possible, and do your best to include all five senses, experience not just the sights but also the sounds, scents and every different sort of  sensation associated with your goal.

When you express gratitude, you feel all the amazing positive feelings associated with what your grateful for. Do the same when you visualize, hold onto all the positive higher frequency feelings associated with the goal that you are visualizing about. Try to hold onto these feelings and repeatedly affirm your belief that you will soon attract the things you yearn for.

Finish with a blessing, ask the universe to let what you have daydreamed manifest in your life.  Then thank the universe for having your back and supporting all your hopes and dreams. Then feel the gratitude in your core, feel all the emotions connected to you living your dreams!

Creative visualization takes dedication and regular practice to manifest results. This is the issue many people struggle with. They visualize for two or three weeks, and start to become skeptics when they have not become rich or got that certain car they have visualized about for the last few weeks.
Stay calm, make sure that you are always in a meditative state when you are about to visualize.  You are commanding yourself to heal or to carry out a goal and this works best when you are calm and relaxed.
Be patient and stick with it, then you will see results.

FEAR – FALSE EXPECTATIONS APPEARING REAL.

In life the number one thing holding us back from living our dreams is fear. Fear of losing, fear of the unknown, fear of change. Anything that could possibly deter us off our path, that society has made us think we need to take in order to be successful.

What a lot of us don’t know is that fear does NOT exist. This is just a word that we have linked lower dimensional emotions and feelings to, because that is how we have been conditioned to think by our parents and our teachers.
How many times have you been told that you need to go to school to get good grades to get a good job? That you HAVE to work hard to get what you want in life.
This is called mental programming and it starts from the first day of school. Throughout  school teachers are always more interested in you “obeying” the rules. In my school if you did not, you would be sent out of class and in doing so you would  miss the lesson. So therefore you are pretty much going to school to learn how to be obedient instead of learning anything that would have any use in your everyday adult life. That is how “school” works instead of focusing on critical thinking,logic, structure and debate, school systems create improper regulations where they will favorite and show more attention and respect to the child who is obedient, turning there back on the disobedient child and stereotyping that child based on there behavior. Essentially creating an assembly line for middle class citizens. Over stressing the responsibility to obey and repeat.

All of these factors have led us to lead a fearful adult life. No matter what anybody say’s I have so many friends and family who are obsessed with being “realistic” in life. I hate that word, what is realism? To go to school, to go to college, to be put in debt before we even start our career and then spend the rest of our lives working to pay back a system that profits of the ignorance of the innocent. A lot of you are working a job you hate, or spending hours studying a subject your not to interested in just because you think that is what you need to do to be “successful.” A lot of you might think you have to put the dreams you have in your life to the back of your mind and have something “realistic” to focus on and put your energy towards.
This is where we all go wrong in life.

   –   Danger is real, Fear is a choice  –

If  you ever encounter a situation where you feel  fearful , remember that the danger your body is telling you is forthcoming may or may not be real. If it is, by all means, act appropriately. If not, don’t let the fear stop you from moving forward because the threat is not real. It’s a product of your thoughts.

In life we are all going to face different dangers and we will all feel fear.  Nothing is impossible, Bob Procter always say’s “what you can hold in your head, you can hold in your hand.” Never hold yourself back in life because you feel fearful and worried that you will not succeed. Fear is a powerful, reactive emotion that also compels people to make decisions quickly – which are less likely to be the best decisions.

It all come’s down to your mindset and how you want to live your life. Do you want to lead a life of hesitation and fear? or do you want to be limitless, confident and courageous?
The choice is your’s and only you can make the decision to better your life, follow your dreams and be the best version of yourself, without letting a fake word get in the way.

Love to wherever you are.
