Manipura translates to “lustrous gem”. It’s the third chakra and the source of personal power, self-esteem, warrior energy, and the power of transformation. When you feel confident and have a strong sense of purpose, and are self-motivated - your third chakra is open and healthy. If out of balance, you can suffer from low self-esteem, have difficulty making decisions, and may have anger or control issues.
When you have clear goals, desires, and intentions, you can move forward to achieve them. Each small step you take while honoring the larger intention helps to strengthen your third chakra.
