Are you run by your ego or by your intuition? Are you in tune enough to know the difference?
If you took a few moments, closed your eyes and pondered what moves you, what gets you really motivated, inspired, happy, do you know what it is and how to manifest it?
What I am asking you is this: Are you navigating your life from a power position or from a state of reaction? And furthermore, are you navigating out of fear, greed, scarcity, or are you coming at life from a place of confidence, abundance, trust-in-the-universe..?
If you’re not sure, you may need a little tune-up of your 3rd Chakra, your Manipura and you may want to bring some happiness into your home to lift your spirits and keep you well on track!

Yellow is warm (yang) and is associated with things sunny, cheerful, joyous, optimistic, practical, confident, and illuminating. It is also associated with wisdom, knowledge, logic and the mind.
~3rd CHAKRA – MANIPURA – Solar Plexus
The solar plexus chakra represents our identity, or how we see and feel about ourselves. It is where your self-esteem, inner power and sense of responsibility originates.Problems with this chakra arise from fear of our own identity or losing our identity. For example, the need to excessively control others or ourselves, inability to take responsibility for ourselves or others, criticism and judgment, poor decision-making ability, fear of failure, or feeling invisible or overlooked by others. The challenge of this chakra is to develop your inner power by being honest and at peace with yourself.
A bit of warm yellow is also welcomed in the CENTER (the Heart of your home), as fire energy nourishes the earth element of this area.
The vibrant and happy yellow color is an excellent feng shui choice for the living room, dining/kitchen, children’s play area to compensate for the lack of light and bring the gentle, cheerful warmth of the sun. Keep in mind that yellow, like fire, should be handled with care. Use it in yummy dollops throughout your home, not so much as one big color theme. TOO MUCH yellow can aggravate and stir arguments. Just like sunshine, we want enough to keep us healthy, but no so much to where we get burned.
Yellow whole foods are loaded with many antioxidants and phytochemicals which help promote healthy function of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas as well as other vital organs and the nervous system.
