"You cannot know fire from words alone. Enter the fire if you want to know the truth.
                                                                                                                         - Rumi

Our solar plexus chakra is the seat of our personal power, self-esteem and mental energy. It is the sun within the body, the inner fire that radiates warmth, power, energy and light. This chakra is the center of our emotional life and where our "gut feelings" and sense of belonging originates. It is the home to our vitality, autonomy, inner knowledge, the feeling of our great power within and our will for transformation. Let's continue our journey of the chakra system and explore the solar plexus chakra. 

What is the solar plexus chakra?

The solar plexus, or Manipura in Sanskrit, is the "brain of the body" and the seat of our personal power, ambition, emotions, inner strength, mental energy and vitality. It is the point of digestion of food, ideas and emotions and is where we store and act on these emotions as well. It represents healthy self-confidence, self-respect and self-esteem and your ability to laugh at yourself and the world. This chakra acts as a point of equilibrium between your present soul purpose and your past karma so that all previous learning is applied wisely moving forward. Being at the center of the physical body, the solar plexus redistributes energy to the rest of the body and is the point of centering where we can come into stillness. It is affected by stress and shock more than any other chakra. Linked to intuition, this energy center is the seat of "gut instincts". It is also the chakra where our personal beliefs are developed that in turn create our thoughts and therefore our behaviors. The solar plexus is associated with human connectedness and the pleasure that comes from deeply knowing one's unique and connected place in the universe.

Big News! 

I am excited to announce I am now beginning to sell crystals in my practice! I am starting with a small inventory that will build up over time with the goal to provide clients with recommended crystals they can work with for their own self-healing in between sessions. 

I am selling individual crystals and crystal sets that each include several crystals for a specific problem, a card with each included crystal's healing properties, a crystal layout to show you where to place the crystals on your body for that specific issue and a handout on how to cleanse your crystals. 

So far I have created crystal sets for anxiety, grounding and chakra balancing with many more to come!
