Yellow has been one of my favorite colors most of my life simply because it’s cheerful. Because, when I wear yellow, it always seems to uplift my frame of mind. Yellow is also the color most closely associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra or Manipura.

Solar Plexus Chakra • Yellow
3rd Chakra • Manipura
The Solar Plexus Chakra is symbolized by a circle with 10 petals in which is inscribed a downward-pointing triangle.
This is an energy center that provides momentum to realize your goals and ambitions in your lifetime. As a result, it affects your development of warrior energy and is the drive that helps you to stay the course to success.
The Solar Plexus Chakra or Manipura is the center of inventiveness, perseverance, self-control, resolution, and realization of accomplishment (Itcha shakti).
You may also know it as Manipura, which is the Sanskrit name for the Solar Plexus Chakra. In Sanskrit, Manipura means City of Jewels.
Body Location • Chakra Position
This Chakra is located in the solar plexus area of the upper part of your belly right where the diaphragm rests or “behind the navel”. Additionally, in the traditional system, this Chakra is the third from the bottom so is referred to as the third chakra.
Mantra to Open and Align
The mantra sound for the third chakra is RAM. Chanting this sound will help to open and align the chakra.
- Close your eyes, place your hand over the area slightly above your belly button.
- Bring to mind the problem or dilemma.
- Notice how your third chakra feels when you give it choices regarding the subject you’re struggling with. A sinking or nauseated feeling may tell you that the decision is wrong.
- If you present your solar plexus with the right choice, you may feel lightness in the area or you may even feel like you can breathe easier.VIA The Chopra Center
The Minerals 💎
The color of this chakra is yellow or gold, so any precious gem or crystal in shades of yellow help open up the solar plexus area to bring healing energy to the liver, pancreas, spleen, and stomach areas.
My favorite third chakra healing stones are Citrine, Tiger’s Eye, Yellow Tourmaline, and the Yellow Topaz.
