Chakra 3

Names: Manipura, Solar Plexus Center
Location: solar plexus
Area of face: throat
Color: yellow
          Antidote: violet
Tone: a-o-m (ahh-oo-mm)
Note: e
Crystals: citrine, turquoise
Aromas: peppermint, lemon

Statement: "I want happiness."


The third chakra is the center or personal power.  When this chakra is open you have found work that gives you pleasure and makes you feel fulfilled.  (It make be outside of your job.)  One way to find this passion is to consider what made you happiest as a child.  It is good to build a positive self image when at this chakra level of development.  At the 6th you'll need to let go of that attachment.

In martial arts this area is considered the chi or life force energy.  This is the center of gut-level intuition.  There is another level of intuition at the 6th chakra.

When parents have goals for their children this sets up a conflict in the child's will.  The child will be torn between love for the parents, and will need to develop power and his or her own.  If the child is loyal to the parents he or she will most likely not find their own form of creative expression, and this may turn into a superiority complex (a reflection of parental pride.)  Secretly these people tend to feel inferior because they were never given the opprotunity to develop a sense of self-worth.
In a less developed person yellow will be mixed with red, indicating a obsession with accumulating things for one's self.  Personal power will be directed towards self serving, and will not bring about fulfillment.  Yellow is the color of happiness.
