WHAT IS THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA?
According to http://chakras.info:
“Characterized by the expression of will, personal power, and mental abilities, the energy of the third chakra or Manipura in Sanskrit is mobilized when we assert ourselves in the world. Discover its key characteristics and how to make the most of this powerful energy center.
The main meanings associated with the third chakra are:
• Will, personal power
• Taking responsibility for one’s life, taking control
• Mental abilities, the intellect
• Forming personal opinions and beliefs
• Making decisions, setting the direction
• Clarity of judgments
• Personal identity, personality
• Self-assurance, confidence
The main function of this energy center is to provide actual momentum to move forward and realize personal desires and intentions in the world. It plays a fundamental role in the development of personal power. It feeds one’s direction in life and the actions taken in order to reach your goals. It influences preoccupations about social status and self-image.”
WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?
Basically they are energetic centers in your body that pertain to certain spiritual and emotional archetypes. You’ve got an energetic body and energy (life force) needs to flow properly. Sometimes energy gets stuck and can cause physical illness. Some say you need to “get your chakras balanced” or you need to “open your third eye” for example. No matter what people say, trust yourself and follow what resonates with you. The chakras are a useful tool for your own spiritual growth, wellness, and understanding of self.
According to Wikipedia, “Chakras are the various focal points in the subtle body used in a variety of ancient meditation practices, collectively denominated as Tantra, or the esoteric or inner traditions of Indian religion, Chinese Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism, as well as Japanese Esoteric Buddhism, and in postmodernity, in new age medicine, and originally psychologically adopted to the western mind through the assistance of Carl G. Jung.”

This is a great breakdown of each one https://chakrasincense.com/pages/chakras-and-you
By the way, I bought their chakra Incense and I have to say it’s some of the best I’ve ever used. (My honest opinion, not an endorsement)
