In Sanskrit: ‘Mani’ refers to a sacred gem, which creates inner illumination and gives us the power to see beyond the ordinary realm, whereas ‘Pura’ means city.
The Manipura or Naval point is located below the diaphragm and above the navel at the solar plexus, on the inner wall of the spinal column. Manipura translates from Sanskrit as "resplendent gem" or "lustrous gem".
The Manipura Chakra is the centre of vitality. It controls our energy balance to strengthen and consolidate our health. This Chakra has an effect like a magnet, attracting Prana from the Cosmos. This Chakra regulates the function of the Pancreas and digestive organs and is also related to the kidneys, adrenals, mid-spine, spleen, and stomach. With its location at the solar plexus, manipura is closely tied to the digestive fire and heat regulation. Imbalances may be in the form of liver and kidney disorders, diarrhea, indigestion, and other digestive issues.
Manipura is our source of self and personal power, it’s about getting things done. It relates to the ego and not necessarily the bad kind of ego. When out of whack, it can manifest as low self-esteem and distortion in our self-image. It can also affect our perception of others in the form of judgment.
