Learn More About Chakras: The 3rd Chakra

January 26, 2013

This is part 3 in a series of 7 articles relating to the subtle energy body, specifically the Chakras. Chakra 1 was covered at the beginning of November, Chakra 2 was covered at the end of November, and since Chakra 3 was covered in December shortly before DBLH was hacked, it was lost. I am confident it is better than the first! The next 4 Chakras will come soon; stay tuned!

The Third Chakra is also named Manipura, which translates as “City of Gems”, and also known as the ‘Power Chakra’ as this is the Chakra that governs your will, your power to create, to manifest and your energy to make your life move forward. It is located at your Solar Plexus. This Chakra also governs your metabolism and overall strength.

Often people have an imbalance here. They’re often on one side of the balance or the other. You may be or know someone who has a lot of intentions but feel very low in the energy or drive it would take to make those intentions reality. On the other hand, you may be or know someone who has the energy to accomplish a lot but no clear intention or path. Other ways an imbalance might show up is in someone who is passive or submissive versus controlling or domineering. A well-balanced third Chakra will show up in people who are able to move their life forward without having the need to always control everyone and everything. They can go with the flow and are very successful at creating the path and navigating the turns.

You may have an imbalance in your Third Chakra if you experience any of the following physical and/or mental ailments:

  • Indigestion
  • Hypo or Hyper –glycemia/ Diabetes
  • Disorders of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, and/or stomach
  • Digestive problems
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Insomnia
  • Tendency to be too hot or too cold
  • Lack of confidence or over confidence

As with any issue relating to your body or mind, you should work with your general healthcare practitioner. Never stop doing what your doctor has prescribed unless you discuss it with them first and they agree that it is okay.

Reiki, Yoga, and Meditation can be fantastic partners to your traditional healthcare regimen. As a practitioner, I highly recommend using these modalities in partnership with your regular healthcare routines.

You may have excessive energy in your 3rd Chakra if you:

  • Are domineering and/or controlling
  • Are overly competitive
  • Are arrogant and/or stubborn
  • Are overly ambitious or driven
  • Are hyperactive
  • Have ulcers
  • Feel the need for sedatives
  • Suffer from insomnia
  • Are ego-centric
  • Have Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Have diarrhea
  • Tend to be too hot, need less clothing on, or tend to lower the heat or turn up the A/C

Your 3rd Chakra may be deficient in energy if you:

  • Are submissive or passive
  • Feel shameful for your actions or feel the need to explain your actions/choices
  • Suffer from Chronic Fatigue
  • Tend to blame others or are often stopped by your circumstances
  • Have low self-esteem or a poor self-image

  • Are constipated
  • Tend to be cold, need the heat up, need blankets and layers of clothing
  • Have little to no drive to accomplish much in your life

Your 3rd Chakra is balanced if you:

  • Are confident about yourself, your actions, and your choices
  • Have a good sense of self, have a good self-image
  • Are able to be outside of your “comfort zone” to grow, learn, stretch yourself
  • Have good self-discipline habits
