The Fire chakra is also considered the Identity chakra or third chakra.
The position of Manipura is stated as being either behind the navel or the solar plexus. Considered the centre of dynamism, energy, willpower and achievement, it is also about empowerment. Manipura is associated with the power of fire and digestion and it vibrates with yellow color, like the Sun.
LAYER: It is said to be blocked by shame.
Shame is one of the major wounds that we may carry inside in regards to the self. As opposed to guilt which is in regards to the act of wrongdoing. Usually we attempt to run away from it by covering it up and pretending to ourselves and to others that we are okay. The way we deal with shame is by repressing it, or better said, by trying not to deal with it. We hide it into the unconscious, amplifying it into the deeper realms of our beings where everything gathers and magnifies from the backstage. With time, we become that which we suppress… Identity chakra.
What are we ashamed of? Let those things to be clearly manifested so that we can start to realize that we will never find balance if we deny that which is also a part of our life. How about acceptance? How about being gentle? How about opening the doors and bring new fresh air inside?
Becoming empowered in our true light with self acceptance, love and compassion. Letting the eternal sun to shine… Manipura.
