Манипура влияе на самоутвърждаването и самоуважението, амбициите, преработването на чувства и преживявания, симпатии и антипатии, ръзгръщането на личността. Когато този център е блокиран чувстваме безпокойство, прекалено упражняване на власт, губим връзка с интуицията си, със себе си, чувстваме се не на място, изпитваме вина и страх от другите.

~Yellow in color, this chakra vitalizes the sympathetic nervous system, which activates our involuntary muscles and gets the body ready for activity – (adrenaline).
The issue here is power: everything having to do with our ability to get things done and to order our world in a harmonious way. This chakra is characterized by energies of inspiration, intellect and wisdom. It is also that point at which psychic experiences flow into our minds.
The connections for healing include digestion and stomach problems, bowels, headaches, adrenal glands and the pancreas, gall bladder, and the nervous system.This chakra is the channel for so-called gut feelings, fight or flight reactions, and raising emotional levels. The questions that center in this chakra are those of will, intention, and integrity. We ask ourselves, am I in integrity here? What do I feel about this course of action? What is my GUT telling me? Is this a person I can trust or someone I need to avoid? Issues of self-esteem, self-respect and integrity are central to the third chakra.
When the third chakra is closed or out of balance, we lose our ability to feel our gut and we get lost in our heads. Negative feelings associated with imbalance in the third chakra manifest as shame, inadequacy, self-consciousness and fear of others.
When this chakra is open and balanced, we experience effectiveness and spontaneity. When this chakra is closed or out of balance, you experience worry, agitation, and a sense of purposelessness.
