The concept of the chakra appears to originate from the Vedas. According to these beliefs, it is an energy center in the etheric body. There are many different chakra systems, but the most popular is composed of 7 primary chakras. It is traditionally believed that the chakras represent systems that interact with the body’s biological processes. The solar plexus chakra or Manipura is the third chakra, and is located between the navel and solar plexus. Manipura is a Sanskrit word, “mani” means “brilliant or jewel” and “pura” means “city or house”. The solar plexus chakra’s primary psychological aspects are identity, willpower, motivation, self-discipline, action, and courage.
