Full Steam Ahead!

train-418957__340

After skirting around a bit this last week, we are finally back on track with Chakra Three – the Manipura Chakra.

The seat of our power, this chakra is responsible for giving us our drive – our strength.  Consider what makes you feel strong and move ahead full steam.

If you are on the timid side, flexing your Manipura muscles is a good idea.  However, if you tend toward perfectionism or the need for status and recognition, drop back into a more restorative backbend and let the chakra cool off.

Here are some tips for keeping your Manipura chakra on course:

  • Deep Breathing
  • Use lemongrass to become that focused warrior
  • Sit on a sunny rock and meditate
  • Try your hand at painting, drawing or another visual art
  • Set goals or intentions & write a list of steps that get you there
  • Choose a mantra and repeat it a few times each day
