Chakra Earrings – Solar Plexus Chakra, Yellow Enamel, 3rd
The Hindu name for this the third of seven major chakras is the MANIPURA. It is positioned at the solar plexus, located just below the ribcage and above the naval. Made of sterling silver and enamel and approximately 1/2″ diameter in size, these Jeffrey David earrings were inspired by a Hindu design that is useful for balancing the solar plexus chakra.
When in balance the solar plexus chakra gives one a sense of personal power. Self confidence is in abundance and decisions are made easily. This chakra is associated with the ability to act on gut intuition. Extreme shyness that keeps one from pursuing goals and a lack of faith in oneself are negative emotions that arise when it is not functioning properly. Possible physical effects of imbalance manifest as ailments of the stomach or any visceral organ, the kidneys and mid-thoracic spine.
To help balance the solar plexus chakra give yourself a pep talk! Recognizing one’s talents and abilities can mobilize that vision toward the realization of life goals. Physical exercise is known to rev up the engine and give a boost to Manipura. Another technique to bring this chakra into balance is to relax oneself and visualize the color yellow while repeating the Hindu chant RAM. Hold your intention at your solar plexus and allow the sound to vibrate there. This exercise energizes the 3rd chakra. Wearing the sterling silver Jeffrey David earrings will give further benefit. Gemstones that resonate on a harmonious frequency with the solar plexus chakra are citrine, gold, yellow calcite and tiger’s eye. The representative color is yellow and symbolic of the element fire.
