Chakra Three - Nabhi Chakra

This Ten Petaled center is called the Nabhi and is situated behind the navel region.  This centre corresponds to the Solar plexus, which gives us the power to sustain things within ourselves.

This centre governs the function of digestion and assimilation and looks after stomach, intestines and part of the liver.  The biological rhythm which is regulated by spleen is also controlled by Nabhi.

This centre looks after the welfare and evolution in mankind.  When Kundalini rises and pierces this centre in a seeker, he becomes satisfied from within and becomes extremely generous.

SATISFACTION is actually a key word for the Nabhi Chakra.  Some "hot livered" people are naturally irritable.  For them life without worry is an impossibility, they will express their discontent at the slightest excuse. 

When our Spirit manifest, we can put things into their true perspective, and worry becomes an unusual occurrence.  We can only be content, when we are in the peace of Thoughtlessness. We realise that the Spirit is not concerned with passing trends and fashions, a button missing here or there. 

The affirmation for the Nabhi is "In my Spirit I am satisfied".
