Day 6: Embody The Sun

LOVE YOGA Day 6: Embody The Sun

Music: Here Comes The Sun by Nina Simone

Even if there’s not sunshine outside, we can still bring the sunshine into our bodies, and feel the benefits of shining from within.

Right between the navel and the chest we have our Solar Plexus, a power energy centre, also known as the Manipura Chakra.

Stimulating and balancing this chakra helps us to “radiate our power into the world”.

We can literally be the sunshine in our own world, and also be the sunshine in other people’s world, in a time when we need it the most.

The solar plexus is the source of personal power, self-belief, and self-worth.

Your solar plexus chakra is activated when you:

  • Muster the courage to do something that scares you.
  • Speak up for yourself.
  • Exert your willpower and self-control.

You’ll notice that in these situations, your energy is high, your posture is tall and commanding, and your is voice firm.

The solar plexus chakra is a the seat of your personal power.

We can also activate it through our yoga practise.

We want to build a little fire in the belly, which gives us motivation and drive.

But we also need to concentrate on it being balanced, so that little fire we have built up can be dispersed around the body leaving us with more of a steady glow than a fierce fire.

The music I have chosen is light but motivating, and reminds us that no matter what clouds are in the sky, the sun is always there.
