Ruled by the sun and fire—the solar plexus chakra is generator of personal power, confidence, and warrior energy.
It's where we channel the energy to take inspired action regardless of any fear or doubt that may be present.
In Sanskrit, it's referred to as Manipura, which means city of jewels. I imagine this to be due to the way we shine when we're balanced enough in this energy center to stand in our greatness.
Built on the strong foundation of the root and sacral chakras, the state of your solar plexus makes up the third part of your core identity, and is a strong determinant of how authentically you show up in the world throughout your life.
When in balance, the solar plexus chakra eases tension throughout the body, enhances intuition, calms intense emotions and frustrations
