The third of the 7 chakras is known as the Navel Center Chakra, the Manipura meaning “City of Jewels”. This is where we find pearls of clarity, wisdom, confidence, and wellbeing. The secondary chakra is called Surya (sun) and it is located at the solar plexus. Manipura is associated with A-type personalities, self-esteem, sense of purpose, personal identity, willpower, digestion, and metabolism. This is also your core of stability “fire in the belly” your willpower which gives you the energy to change, grow, and take action, this is the spark we need to get things going.
The first of the 7 chakras is known as the 1st or Root Chakra, the Muladhara (root support). Although each chakra serves an important purpose the root chakra is suggested to be the most important because it is the Chakra that connects us to our physical world and governs over our physical energies, giving us a sense of safety and security with other people and ourselves.
It is important to balance this chakra first before balancing the others, from an energetic stand-point, as it is widely believed that this is where we draw our life force energy from and supports every other chakra. Like anything you must have a good foundation in order to function properly.
