Personal power, self-esteem, confidence, and strength of will are all very important elements for a person to have the drive to achieve their goals. Without it, a person may become stagnant and unable to achieve, which is why it is important to know how to awaken and cleanse the chakra that governs these: the Manipura.
What is the Manipura?
The Manipura is the third and last of the physical chakras. Located around the navel area, where the solar plexus is, up to the breastbone, this is where our inner strength, self-esteem, warrior energy, and the will to change and transform comes from. Whenever you feel a surge of self-confidence and have a solid sense of purpose, motivated to achieve the things you set your mind to, your Manipura is at work and alive. And just the same, if you feel unconfident, insecure, suffer from indecision, and feel unreasonably angry, your Manipura is out of balance or blocked.
In addition, the Manipura also controls emotional strength. A strong Manipura will allow you to accept criticism and transform it into energy to change if the criticism is sound, and be unphased when criticism or insults are hurled your way. You do not fear rejection and failure, seeing them as opportunities to do better. A weak Manipura reverses all of that; fear of failure cripples you to inaction, criticisms and insults push you back further away from your goals.
Physically, the Manipura governs the body’s metabolism and energy generation, as well as digestion, since these two go hand in hand. Having an active Manipura gives you energy to do the things you wish to pursue, allow you to wake up feeling very refreshed, and give you the energy to get you through the day. A weak Manipura leaves you lethargic, constipated, unable to move without great effort, and even shortness of breath and dizziness in some cases.
So as you can see, it is very important to awaken the Manipura.

How to awaken the Manipura
One of the primary ways to awaken the third chakra is to have some goals or desires that you wish to achieve. Once you have these, take even the smallest of steps towards them, no matter how difficult it may be. Think of it like stoking a fire; you have to take care of small embers and tendrils of flame, despite being difficult, before it turns into a blazing fire that can give you warmth and light in your life.
The same is with the Manipura. Each small step you take while honoring your intention to achieve helps awaken and strengthen your third chakra, which in turn will make those steps come faster and larger! Which is quite appropriate, as the Manipura’s element is fire and the color is yellow, bright as the blazing sun.
As well, affirmations daily will help you stoke that inner fire. This includes affirmations like “I can achieve anything I desire”, “I believe in myself”, “I respect and honor myself and my goals.” Saying this daily in a mantra will keep the Manipura strong!
Other ways to open the Manipura include the following:
1.) Yoga and meditation – virtually all of the strength poses of yoga help awaken the Manipura.
2.) Strength foods – strength and healing foods such as the following help nourish the Manipura:
- sweet potatoes
- yellow and orange peppers
- yellow pears
- golden apples
- brown rice
3.) Color stimulation – wearing the color yellow, having yellow items in your room or office.
4.) Gems and healing stones – use these gems and healing stones during your meditation, or simply by wearing them as jewelry or carrying them in your pocket. Any method that will keep them close to your person.
- yellow jasper
- golden tiger eye
- yellow jade
- golden calcite
- yellow topaz
5.) RAM and Music – the mantra sound of the third chakra is RAM. Chant this sound and feel the vibrations open and align your third chakra. As well, listen to a binaural beats track for chakra activation to help, like this one!
Using carefully plotted binaural beat and isochronic tone frequencies, this all-in-one chakra meditational music track will help and guide you throughout your session. Each music segment will fade out indicating the next chakra point you need to focus on. Close your eyes. Feel the vibrations flow through you, and awaken with a much more relaxed state of being. Be One with yourself and your surroundings.
