Do you fear rejection and criticism? Are you unable to trust your Self? A boost of self esteem is deep inside you, just minutes away!

The Solar Plexus Chakra, or Manipura, contains lessons regarding rejection, your self esteem, sensitivity to criticism, a distorted self image, and worry with your secrets being found out. The intelligence of the Third Chakra anchors your personality and your sense of character and personal strength, your style and knowing, personal energy and your feeling of belonging. An imbalance in the Third Chakra might express as bad decisions, poor focus, difficulty taking motion and getting things accomplished, and a failure to judge a situation accurately. Fluctuations in the Third Chakra can make you feel more, or less, than others. Emotional memories are stored within the Manipura Chakra, and it is where your gut feelings begin. The Third Chakra is the central point of your psychic sense, and many are normally attached to the environment through the Third chakra. The Third Chakra is right above your belly button, at the core of your solar plexus. It is color is yellow. It's linked to the Mental layer of the aura. The mental layer of the aura created by, our ideas, and is a good, bright yellow electricity, and vibrates with, and is formed by, our views. It moves and thickens when we concentrate and focus our thoughts.

Possibly the most direct method to awaken the vibrant, personal energy within your Solar Plexus is through sound; just 27 minutes with a pair of earphones and Alpha Binaural Beats can provide the ego boost you need! Cutting edge sound recovery, combined with historic Chakra balancing traditions, this program uses Tibetan Singing Bowls tuned to the Solar Plexus Chakra, and the Binaural Beats use a Solfeggio note of 528 Hz. The noise advances along Earth Resonant frequencies to a minimal of 7.83 Hz (Shumann Resonance) and ramps back up to an Earth Resonance of 14.1 Hz. That deeply soothing Manipura Chakra balancing meditation will not only help balance your Solar Plexus, it'll also balance your mind and soul to the frequencies of Mother Earth.

Yoga postures such as the Bow, or 'Dhanaurasana ', can help heal the Solar Plexus chakra, as well as retain flexibility and youthful health and wellness.

Chakra Crystals such as gold topaz, citrine, amber, yellow pearl and yellow tourmaline are helpful in 3rd chakra balancing.

On the list of flower essences and crucial oils used to balance the Manipura are lavender, yarrow, vetivert, petigrain, peppermint, orange juniper, and marjoram.

Solar Plexus Chakra meals are grains, pasta, bakery goods, granola, cereal, flax seed, grain, sunflower seeds. Dairy foods like milk, yogurt and cheese, and spices such as lavender, mint, cinnamon, cumin, turmeric and fennel help to warm the Solar Plexus.
