Manipura Chakra – solar plexus – the center of will and courage

Chakra is a concept in yogic spirituality,

representing energy centers or vortices of energy that are located in the human body.

There are seven main chakras in total,

and Manipura is the third from bottom to top, localized in the region of the upper abdomen.

Manipura is the seat of will and expansion,

Control the power of dominance over instincts and the outside.

The word “Manipura” comes from Sanskrit

And it can be roughly translated as “Diamond Fortress” or “Diamond Brilliance.”

It is a lotus with 10 petals, located above the navel,

projecting into the invisible body in the solar plexus area.

The development of the Manipura chakra can have wonderful effects on the individual,

both mentally, emotionally,

as well as physically, and they all have to do with invisible, subtle “fire.”

The proper sense organs are the eyes and the corresponding sense is sight.

It controls digestive function and liver, vision.

Abheda Yoga recommendation for the dynamization of the center:

NABHIASANA – navel posture

Nabhiasana helps us to amplify in ourselves the will and the ability to act, intensely dynamiting the Manipura Chakra (the center of courage).

Due to this dynamization, after practicing the asana we will also be able to sense a capacity to control the creative energies.
