People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

The Third Chakra – Manipura – Jewel of the Navel
Color: Yellow Physical Location: Solar plexus Seed Sound – RAM
Greetings dearest yoga students,
This week’s study takes us to the third chakra located in our solar plexus, the Manipura. This chakra is deeply associated with the relationship you have with yourself. It deals with self-esteem, personal power and knowing who you are and trusting in your intuition or “gut feeling” to guide you into manifesting your desires and dreams.
I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship. Louisa May Alcott
Carolyn Myss describes an element of the Third Chakra in her book Anatomy of the Spirit as “While we measure our own success in terms of our personal comfort and security, the universe measures our success by how much we have learned”. The Manipura Chakra is associated with the element of fire, and is meant to transform and challenge us to find our inner strength and connection to our individual higher power when dealing with the world in which we live. When we truly find our own personal power, it creates a beautiful inner strength that both supports us and nurtures us from the inside. Fuel your inner fire by repeating the mantra, “RAM” as your read the words below connecting to that area below your rib cage an around your navel, the Manipura.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
