The Solar Plexus Chakra
Location: From the navel to about the ribcage, it reportedly governs all things metabolic, digestive, and stomach-related.
What it is: With its Sanskrit name, Manipura, meaning “lustrous gem,” the third chakra is said to be your source of individual power, ruling over self-esteem. Or as Olivia says, it is the “action and balance chakra that focuses on individual willpower, personal power, and commitment.”
When it’s blocked: You can suffer from low self-esteem, have difficulty making decisions, and may have anger or control issues. Olivia notes that it’s not just feeling badly about yourself, but also may lead you to outwardly express apathy, procrastination, or that you’re able to be taken advantage of easily. Likewise, you’ll also possibly have a tummy ache of somekind such as digestive issues or gas. (Ugh.)
