Ignite Your Inner Fire with Solar Plexus Chakra Healing!
We’ve made it through the first two chakras (look back at blog posts 1 and 2, if you missed anything)! Now, we’re movin’ on up to the Solar Plexus chakra (Manipura). The Root chakra is associated with earth, the Sacral chakra with water, and coming out of the mud and into the light, the Solar Plexus chakra is represented by fire. Manipura is Sanskrit for “city of jewels” and this chakra has a connection with the sun, heat, the energy of light and all forms of power. The location of the Solar Plexus chakra is right where it sounds like - near the solar plexus of the body. The main function of this energy center is to provide actual momentum to move forward and realize personal desires and intentions in the world. Thus, Manipura plays a fundamental role in the development of personal power.
Signs of Solar Plexus Chakra Imbalance:
- The need for control over situations and people
- Obsessed the smallest details
- Fatigue or excessive laziness
- Feeling helpless
- Lack of clear direction or purpose
- Making plans without finding efficient ways to realize them
- Stomach or digestive issues
- Eating disorders
Healing the Solar Plexus:
- Consume yellow foods - bananas, yellow peppers
- Eat spices such as ginger, mint and cumin
- Solar Plexus meditation
- Aroma therapy with essential oils like orange and grapefruit
- Get out in the SUN!

Music. Connection. Movement.
January 27 @ 7:00pm - Click Here to Save a Spot!
Let's be honest, these days it is easy to get off track; to loose ourselves in the whirlwind that is Life. We forget the natural rhythms, the bends where time slows and the current is peaceful. Fear not, friends! Soulshine is offering one of those bends in time! Come play with us as the Bandura Gypsies set the stage for our souls to reconnect with that little, shining piece of ourselves through their original and authentic SoulShining Live Music! Together we will move through an All-Levels Yoga Flow, build some heat and strength and then wind down to that place where we are one mind, one body, one Being. Come, reconnect with the natural rhythms of your body and it's authentic dance with all of life. Recharge, Rejuvenate, Revive!
