The Third Chakra: the Seat of Self-Esteem

Is your third chakra in balance? 
The third chakra is located in the area of the solar plexus, navel and digestive system. It is associated with power, self-esteem and vitality. It is the seat of the intellect.
Glands/organs associated with the third chakra:
   Pancreas, organs of digestion (small intestine)

When the third chakra is imbalanced, there can be digestive problems. 

The element for the third chakra is fire. When there is too much heat in this part of the body, there can be digestive problems. All of the "itis" diseases begin in this chakra when the fire gets out of control.

When the third chakra is excessive, anger, hatred, too much attention to power, status and recognition can be present.
When it is deficient, one can have digestive problems, eating disorders, low self-esteem and a feeling of powerlessness.
