Chromotherapy: Melting into Yellow

Luscious lemons, ambient ambers, sensual saffrons, to grandiose golds, the glorious gradients of yellow will kindle your mind, body, and soul with vitality, confidence, and clarity.

Illuminating shades of yellow stimulate your memory and nervous system, sharpening your senses and sparking intellect. Giving us a lust for life and boldly stating “here I am”, yellow encourages the well being of our psychic center, the solar plexus. A color with a wealth of warmth, yellow can ease and promote fluidity in communication by unfurling inspiration for the written and spoken word.

Radiate the power of your psychic center, a golden glowing star at your solar plexus. Igniting our expression of will and psychic abilities, the energy center of Manipura is mobilized when we assert ourselves into the world.  Assume full responsibility for your life by taking charge of your thoughts, which govern our decisions and shape the reality that we exist in. A balanced third chakra allows us to formulate clear opinions and beliefs with accountability, clarity of personal identity, the fluidity of navigating decisions with wisdom, and setting the clearest course on the path to your future.

Manipura, translated from Sanskrit as “city of jewels,” is connected to the element fire, and is closely tied to dancing, laughing, and physical interaction with others. With a strong connection to solar energy, time walking beneath the sun or sitting near to a flame can greatly influence the health and prosperity of this energy center.

Cedarwood, Rosemary, Chamomile, and Bergamot in the form of essential oils and herbal teas are exceptional aids in nurturing your solar plexus energy center.

Closely connected to the digestive system, namely the gastric and hypogastric plexi, your solar plexus energy center governs your body’s ability to transform matter into energy. Closely associated with the pancreas, controlling your metabolic functions.

Bananas, yellow peppers, yellow squash, lemons, pineapple, corn, and fibrous foods like yellow lentils, flaxseed, brown rice, nuts, seeds, are imperative to balancing your Manipura chakra.

Yoga postures that greatly benefit the Manipura chakra are Ardha Matsyendrasana (half lord of the fishes pose, as pictured above), Dhanurasana (bow pose), Parvritta Trikonasana (revolved triangle pose), and Bhujangasana (cobra pose). A daily yoga practic complete with postures, pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation, will ensure a positive outcome of your entire body and mind.
