Alchemy of Fire: The Solar Plexus

Alchemy of Fire: The Solar Plexus by Silvia Mordini

The Fire Element known as Agni represents the energy of transformation or change. It has three forms: fire, the sun, and lightening. This is the element associated with the third chakra, our solar plexus.
The Solar Plexus

The Sanskrit name of the solar plexus chakra, Manipura, translates to “lustrous gem.” Located between belly button and the bottom of the rib cage, it governs our intentions for emancipation, our right to act, our duty for self-definition, and our ego.

Full Moon Energy of Change

Full Moon energy is a potent time to align and release what is no longer serving you.

The perfect mantra for this time is: I AM READY FOR CHANGE

This is very 2nd and 3rd chakra work and being on the mat will reveal what is necessary for us to allow our evolution to unfold. We get to see where we have resistance to change. Or where we doubt ourselves or hesitate which are forms of resistance. We all know what we want, what we need, what we are ready for and often replaying old patterns serves to hold us back.

I would love for you to empower yourself to know that YOU CREATE YOUR REALITY. You can influence your life in a dark way or change it out and dream big and each day of your life becomes as Rumi writes “a day of festival!” Yes, it really will if you allow yourself to keep evolving in the direction of happiness which the yoga sutras say is our natural state.

Start now: I AM READY FOR CHANGE.

Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
