In the Middle of Manipura: A Solar Plexus Story

A Film by Sarahn Sankofa

In the Middle of Manipura is about the journey through losing and finding your Yellow. Your Yellow, being that life force energy that inspires courage and creativity and aligns your decision-making with clarity and self-assurance. This is a part of my story; the first chapter in my Chakra Series, which will take me through the prism of purpose, prosperity and peace during these next 7 years of my 20’s.

Chakras (“cha-kras”) are various focal points in the human body used in ancient eastern meditation practices. The Sanskrit word, chakra, translates to ‘wheel’.

Chakras are energy centers within the body that help to regulate all of its processes, from organ function, to thought patterns and emotional balance.

There are seven chakras in the body. The 3rd chakra, Manipura, also known as the Solar Plexus chakra, is the source of personal power. This chakra is the center of our decision-making, discipline, clarity and self-assurance.

CAPTURE, CREATE, CELEBRATE! Challenge yourself everyday this month to be creative and conscious in observance of the gifts of life. Get family and friends involved and share online (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter)  with hashtags’ #sarahnsays and #ccmay18.
