Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)


Solar plexus chakra (Manipura)

The solar plexus is the melting pot where physical and spiritual come together. This is where your "gut instinct"—the physical feeling—merges with the mental radar of intuitive perception. It is also where id instincts—overindulgence, for instance—are held in check by more reasoned thinking. To balance this chakra of balance, look for a mala with yellow stones such as amber, citrine, tiger's eye, or topaz.
