Pilates Jen: Strengthen & Stabilizing Our Vital Core, Igniting Our Internal Flame, Charging One’s Will & Transforming Our Energy
Third Energy Center: Solar Plexus
Vital Auric Body – Fire Element
All roads lead home to Manipura (in Sanskrit, “lustrous gem, radiant like a sun”).
Golden yellow Manipura, which is located just above the navel fortifies our solar plexus with power and warmth. When it is fully charged, we are peaceful, harmonious, courageous and ethical.
The Solar Plexus, with the element of fire, ignites our internal flames to create energy from food we eat and to distribute the nutrients where they are needed.
Like a moth drawn to a flame, we are consumed by a mysterious and powerful inner calling to travel closer to the flame of our spiritual self. By focusing on this flame, we can unlock the records (akasha) of our soul and reveal the true purpose of our journey. Through the fires of creation, we can transmute the illusions before us, purify our intentions and transform our energy into creative expressions of true light.
Through the process of purification, our true path emerges and we gain access to higher planes of consciousness. Our radiance is increased and the light quotient of our spiritual body is quickened. The magnetic forces of the ascension process guide us closer to the heart of all that is.
