Last time we explored the Sacral Chakra. We learned where it’s located, attributes it affects, how to know when it is out of balance and how to open it up and keep it flowing.
The third chakra is the Personal Power Chakra. It’s located just above the navel. Its color is yellow and its element is fire.
This chakra governs your relationship with yourself. This includes self-esteem, self-image, and freedom from shame.
The Manipurna vibrates on a certain frequency. There are activities that vibrate on a similar frequency. Participating in these activities will open and strengthen your power chakra.
- Yell out loud
- Change of routine
- Building a fire
- Ripping up boxes
- Throwing ice cubes
- Sucking in the tummy
It’s the part of you that says I can accomplish anything I want to with grace and ease.
The power of the third chakra is understanding. It’s about understanding the power you possess. We view our power in one of two ways:
- As personal power
- As power over others
The question to ask is how do you view your power? Unfortunately, most of us view it as something to have over others. That is false power. True power is an ability to have a strength within ourselves.
If you possess true power you will not be intimidated by people who seem to have power over you. You’ll remain unscathed because you’re secure within your own strength.
You’ll recognize when you’re being taught, guided and served as well as when someone else is exerting authority over you.
Personal power keeps you in control of you even when you can’t be in control of your situation.
When the power chakra is blocked you sometimes find yourself saying these statements to yourself:
- I have no power
- I must not be powerful, no matter what happens.
- I don’t deserve to be powerful.
- I can’t handle being powerful.
- Power is for others, not me
- When do you feel most powerful?
- What is your motivation?
- What makes you feel most Powerful
- What is your desire or intention?
When you’re empowered and unafraid you’re comfortable with being in control, but more importantly, you’re comfortable with relinquishing it. When you are secure in yourself you can work from the heart.
Next week we move on to The Heart Chakra. I hope to see you here and as always: May blessings find you in your life. May peace and prosperity rain down upon you. Blessed be.
