I focus on my solar plexus, where the third chakra, Manipura, is located. Grounding myself through my Root, the Sacral wheel of energy turning, I direct my attention to the issues in my life concerning power, fear, anxiety and introversion. When this chakra is open and freely flowing, I have the strength of will to overcome jealousy, sadness, disgust, foolishness, fear, delusion, shame, treachery, thirst, and spiritual ignorance. I take responsibility for my opinions and actions, the implementation of my personal power, while respecting and accepting the opinions and actions of others. I encourage expansiveness and growth, within myself, as well as others.
