Close your eyes. Take time to welcome what Fire evokes for you, intimately. Open them… and keep reading with your heart wide open.
Fire has an upward, immaterial and changing movement. Its movement is powerful and carries within it two possible ones: creation and destruction, in other words, the potential for life, and that of death. Fire needs to be controlled, channeled so as to be the agent of creation and transformation that is so precious to our lives.
When we observe the Fire Element, we connect to structure, dynamism, intensity.
A few other qualities of Fire are change and rhythm. Thus, Fire can be vibrant and hypnotic.
Ice has the same Fire characteristics.
The chakra corresponding to the Fire Element is the third Chakra, called Manipura, which means “brilliant gem”. It is located around the navel, in the area of the solar plexus and up to the sternum. It is a source of personal power and governs self-esteem, the warrior’s energy and the power of transformation. The Manipura Chakra also controls our metabolism and digestion, and as such, our inner fire, core of our personality, our identity. It also expresses the warmth in our personality.
The third chakra is the center of willpower. It is all about the perception of who we are.
The gift of this chakra is sensing our personal power, feeling confident, responsible, and reliable.
Understanding the Spirit-Body energy System is essential if you wish to become the most vibrant, healthy and radiant version of yourself. Like all other chakras (energy centers of our body that play an important role in our physical, mental and spiritual well-being), if it is open, aligned and fluid, it augurs well for willpower based on confidence and responsability.
Indeed, Yellow – the Manipura chakra color is a primary color, composed from a single ray of light. The energy of yellow is optimistic, and full of energy. It is the color of youth, new beginnings, birth and re-birth. As you unfold the petals of solar plexus chakra, you find a fire that burns within you, that gives you passion, power and energy to stand for yourself. You find trust and inner worth as the healing brilliance of yellow.
Harmonizing Manipura means seeking balance in the decisive power within us, while affirming our will in a healthy way and achieving any objective we have decided to achieve. One of the great qualities of Fire can be of great help: accurate intension.
If this chakra is not in balance, you may experience lack of self-esteem, difficulties in taking decisions and have anger and control issues. A low digestion may indicate a block.
