The Navel Chakra governs your digestion and metabolism, so if you are stressed at work, that stress may cause you to experience stomach problems and constipation. Traditional Hindu medicine looks at your situation holistically, and discovers the root cause of your illness.
To keep your chakra active and open, incorporate the following changes into your lifestyle:
- Wear the corresponding colour. All 7 chakras emit a different colour, and therefore resonate and respond to that colour’s specific frequencies. Solar plexus is yellow, so start adding shades of yellow in your lifestyle.
- Carry around gemstones of the same color as the chakra you are trying to balance. They carry extremely high and positive vibes that send out healing frequencies that your chakras pick up on.
- Eat healthy. Avoid overeating; Stick to smaller portions and stay away from spicy foods.
- Exercise. Gently massage your abdomen in a clockwise direction. Vīrāsana (Hero Pose) and Vajrāsana (Sitting on the Heels) have a powerful effect on the digestion through the Vajra Nādīs, two nerve channels that run from the big toe upwards through the front of the body. To promote good digestion it is recommended that you sit in Vajrāsana for five to ten minutes after eating.
- Practice gratitude! it is an instant frequency “tune-up” and affects the state of your chakras.
Note: the position of your belly button helps determine how fast you run or swim. People of West African origin tend to have longer legs than people of European ancestry, that means their belly buttons are about 1.8 inches higher than those of whites.
