Shakti Lakini is a form of Lakshmi, the goddess of good fortune and beauty. She has three faces with three eyes in each. The third eye symbolizes the increased psychic sense that comes with the awakening of this chakra.
This chakra represents an important step in the development of human consciousness. Some tantric teachings regard it as the starting point for higher human development. When the energies of this chakra are active and balanced we enjoy well-being and we have a clear sense of personal determination. When the will is blocked we experience a sense of frustration which is often accompanied by a tightening of the whole solar plexus area. Repressed anger and contained force eventually snap and there is an emotional scene, a crisis, even a breakdown. This chakra radiates its fiery energy like a bright sun. Where there is prana there is life. Each chakra is a centre of prana but it is generated and distributed by the manipura centre. This centre is given great importance in traditional Japanese teachings. It is called hara which means belly. It is the centre point where all things both visible and invisible find their balance. In Japan a person is judged to be untrustworthy and insincere unless the voice comes from the hara.
Meditate on the element of fire or explore the concept of personal power by considering how you use your power into the world.
Pranayama Kapalabhati or hara breathing.
Asanas try Paschimotanasana, spinal flexes in both directions on a sitting position on the heels.
Also belly push helps activate manipura chakra.
This chakra is concerned with expressing emotions. Music such as tango is music that has the power to express an emotion, whether is grief or joy and can provide a cathartic experience.
