The solar plexus chakra

“Radiate your power in the world,” could say the solar plexus chakra. Its name in Sanskrit “Manipura” means “lustrous gem”. It is your source of individual power, mental abilities ruling over self-esteem. It is located between the navel to about the ribcage, it reportedly governs all things metabolic, digestive, and stomach-related.

A blockage in the solar plexus chakra may lead to a state in which you can suffer from low self-esteem, have difficulty making decisions, and/or may have anger or control issues. It might also lead you to outwardly express apathy, procrastination, or that you’re able to be taken advantage of easily. On the physical level a blockage in the solar plexus chakra is associated with tummy ache of some kind such as digestive issues or gas.
