Influences and Insights:
The Solar Plexus Chakra is the self-power chakra … one’s self-confidence, self-discipline, self-esteem and the ability to achieve goals arise from this power.
It is at the Solar Plexus where the “I” shines from, where we feel strength, will and personal worth. Manipura is the core of our being and gives us the energy to stand tall and radiate personal power.
Solar Plexus energy is about will, autonomy, and self-definition. It is the building block of personal development, reminding us to be true to ourselves and live an authentic life.
I am confident.
I am deserving.
I am open and free.
