Manipura or the Solar Plexus Chakara

"Batter Up!  Before we have to call this game due to rain!"  Umpire the game with confidence in the TootsUncommon MAC Raincoat!
The Solar Plexus Chakra, located between the navel and solar plexus, is your power centre - your Core Self. While the Sacral chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment, the third chakra is all about who you are.
The gift of this chakra is sensing your personal power, being confident, responsible, and reliable. The third chakra is the centre of your self-esteem, your willpower, self-discipline, as well as warmth in your personality.
The energy of this chakra allows you to transform inertia into action and movement. It allows you to meet challenges and mover forward in your life.
The message of the third chakra is: You have the power to choose. Your can choose to achieve your life purpose or you can live out your karma or past experiences.
What do you choose? Do you choose love, light and healing? Do you accept that you have the power to choose? Do you feel a sense of freedom when you make a choice?
The third chakra is the centre of your self-esteem. Every time you judge or criticize yourself, you deplete this chakra and weaken your willpower. Self love, self acceptance, and acknowledgement of your own worth are the building blocks of the third chakra.
Any of Deepak Chopra's "Seven Spiritual Laws" would serve the purpose enhancing Manipura.  So, I will share with you the gist behind Wednesday's Spiritual Law...The Law of Least Effort, "Accept people, situations, and events as they occur.  Take responsibility for your situation and for all events seen as problems.  Relinquish the need to defend your point of view." 
Our animals can sense our emotions which in turn effect their behavior.  Choosing self love and acceptance over their opposites will positively effect your pets!  Now that is worth some thought!
