Chakra 3 Blockages

When the energy of the Manipura Chakra is too strong or out of balance, people can suffer an inflated ego and become very controlling. Likewise, they may come across as bossy, stubborn or aggressive. They have a lack of consideration for others while at the same time they are careless for other people’s feelings. Single-mindedness prevails with a strong connotation for being a “workaholic.” Physically they have a high metabolism and may have difficulty slowing down or relaxing. They display a multitude of scattered creative ideas and are prone to various types of addiction.

NEGATIVE ASSOCIATIONS:

  • Intolerant
  • Careless
  • Argumentative
  • Extravagant
  • Pleasure loving
  • Shameless

Chakra 3 Weakness

A deficiency of energy or weakness in the Manipura Chakra will appear as a lack of motivation or willpower. Mental blocks are accompanied by nervousness and impatience. Those with weakness in the Manipura Chakra have no desire to take action and are stuck in old negative patterns. Physically they suffer fatigue and tiredness and avoid exercise. The depleted energy of this chakra also exudes a lack of confidence and emanates self-doubt. In addition, they are very indecisive and have trouble making any decision of their own volition.

Manipura Chakra 3 Solar Plexus Yoga Poses for Balance & Harmony
Manipura Chakra Mandala

Planes of Existence

From our Solar Plexus comes the energy of daytime activity, vision, creativity and productivity. This fiery energy leads to self-expression and uninhibited action. If suppressed, it will create a negative emotion state with head spinning frustration. Therefore, it is important to keep Chakra 3 in harmony and balance.
