All About Shanti Kai™ Manipura™: Solar Plexus Essence

Shanti Kai™ Manipura™ Chakra Essence

Did you know that the Solar Plexus region – i.e. in the area known as the Third or Manipura Chakra- stores negative memory – trauma, beliefs and emotion that can have a major impact on how you think and feel… as well as the overall levels of wellbeing you experience? Working with Shanti Kai™ Manipura™ or Solar Plexus™ Chakra Essence can help balance this important energy center, which includes the stomach, spleen and liver, and governs mind-body energies effecting your overall well-being and state of mind. Your overall levels of self-worth and confidence, and ultimately your self esteem as well as how well you focus on your goals and apply yourself toward success can all be mitigated at the level of your Manipura (or Solar Plexus) Chakra.

Ayurvedic and Ancient Roots

According to Ayurveda, much of what ultimately manifests in your physical body as “imbalance” – that can eventually evolve into disease and/or illness – can be balanced at the level of your chakras. With the right tools, you can intervene on your own behalf and have a positive impact on the way you think and feel. Shanti Kai™ Manipura™ Chakra Essence Blend can help you intercept negative energies before they take hold, improving how you think, feel, and ultimately react. Indeed, working with this Master Blend, you can help mitigate energies that impact how you think and feel (i.e. on a energetic level) – before they take root. Overtime, this can have a profound and powerful impact on the direction of your overall life purpose and path.

Manipura Chakra Essence and Clearing Negative Memory

Did you know that within your Manipura Chakra negative memory is stored? Thats right, your emotional history included trauma, beliefs and emotion, as well as your inherited emotional history are all stored in this region. And… if left unchecked, can have a major impact on how you think and feel… as well as respond and react, impacting the flavor of your overall life experience. Your inherited emotional history comes from your mother- and while beyond the parameters of this discussion, is also “downloaded” in this region, in your spleen chakra (inside your Manipura Chakra) while you are still in the womb.

Manipura Chakra and Your Ancestral Download

This early download from Mom has the effect of imprinting and influencing your reactionary patterns from the earliest life experience. If allowed to accumulate, and depending on how much you started with, can be challenging to counteract. That is, if you wait until your feelings are so out of control or until your mind is so disturbed that you can’t stand it – in order to do something about it, the process can be much harder and more drawn out than if you take action from earlier on. You’re essentially waiting until you have a problem to correct it- like waiting until you’re an alcoholic to intervene on how much you’re drinking… that’s not to discourage anyone with this issue- for indeed you can do it, but it may take a little more effort and require a little more help! But if, with conscious awareness, you intervene on your own behalf from early on- at whatever point you begin to notice the issue (or that you are willing to take action)- you begin to have a more positive impact from that point forward. You are effectively countering a negative with a conscious positive- it both neutralizes the negative and gives you a point in the right direction. With time, it begins to impact and effect how you think and feel on a daily basis, empowering you toward greater confidence, optimism, and success.

Intervening on Your Own Behalf: When to use Manipura Chakra Essence

At the slightest indication your mind is going down an unwanted or negative path, rabbit hole, or spiral… and your perhaps usual but non-beneficial and or unwanted reactionary patterns are starting to settle in, whip out your Shanti Kai™ Manipura™ Essence and prepare to apply this blend!

How to Apply Shanti Kai™ Manipura™ Essence

Simply Shake well and apply! We recommend spraying over your forehead, temples, throat, base of skull, along spine and/or over solar plexus region (ie area between chest and navel). You may also wish to apply to other areas, regardless of whether or not they seem to be connected. Spraying the backs of your knees and kidney/ adrenal area, along ankles and bottoms of feet, may also be beneficial. It is not necessary for the Essence to be applied over the exact region it is intended (or named) for. Your body is interconnected and your being integrated. (The concept is similar to an acupuncturist accessing your liver through the palm of your hand or the bottom of your feet, they are simply targeting tiny lesser-known chakra points that connect to major organs (i.e. through your chakras and meridians). Thus we recommend you spray it when and where you feel it, during times of mind-body stress, and/ or at the onset of emotional or mental unrest.

Acute Application

It may also be beneficial to use during times of heightened stress, when there has already been an accumulation of negative energy- in such instances you may choose to use it at increased or acute intervals spraying every 30 to 60 minutes until symptoms subside*. If you feel you are suffering from a medical problem or health issue, seeking guidance from your healthcare professional is always recommended.

Our Philosophy

At Shanti Kai, we advocate for the element of the cross; the horizontal and vertical dimensions of health – meaning integrating the spiritual and physical – that is, to bring balance to both the physical body, here in the third dimension, as well as to your spiritual self – the part of your being that resides on higher and different, more vast and complex dimensions. We recommend you use both the holistic and natural, as well as – when necessary – the medical and scientifically proven. By combining both the physical and spiritual, you can achieve the highest levels and greatest order of health.

And… working with Shanti Kai™ Essences as an adjunct to your wellness routine is a great way to consciously do just that! Remember, Essences work best when you consciously work with them – over time. Although they do not require you do anything other than be open to and willing to accept change, you may receive accelerated results and/or enhanced benefits if you apply them as part of a larger, conscious wellness routine and/or as part of (or alongside) other forms of therapeutic healing you may be doing.

Featuring Lighten Up™ Essence for Labor Day!

[vc_single_image image=”29734″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” link=”https://shantikai.com/store/essence-blends/lighten-up-essence-spray/”]Labor Day is almost here and it’s about time you think about how you will “Lighten Up”!!!! Without all the places to go (for those of us in lock-down or awaiting hurricanes, or dealing with Covid related stress otherwise), we are offering an energetic shift… no need to go anywhere, just go within and Lighten Up!

Don’t know how? Read on!

Lighten Up™ is our premier essence for emotional clearing so you can feel “lighter”.. Lighten Up™ clears the emotional subtle body, lifting heavy, dense, emotional energy out of your auric field. Heavy energies can also accumulate in the atmosphere and linger…unless energetically cleared out. Great for days off, after work hours… and during stressful times and/or events when you need to “Lighten Up”. Such energy can weigh down your energetic subtle bodies, especially the parts coinciding with your mental/emotional-subtle energy field, and also your heart and throat chakras (and any areas of weakness where you tend to “carry” your stress).

Also beneficial if you tend toward an over serious nature, such as a Type A personality (or are in a relationship with someone who is), as this can help you buffer tendencies to worry and/or “over stress” so they don’t “rub off” on you! What’s more, this essence can help bring out your playful side and encourage others around you to “Lighten Up” as well. In fact, according to some stories we’ve heard, this essence works a little TOO WELL. Lol (‘nough said)!

Fun Fact from Shanti Kai™ creator: In 2010, this essence was originally named Shanti Kai™ “Inner Balance” and was designed for clients of mine that were struggling with neurological conditions* (no we don’t make health claims, we are strictly referring to balancing of energies here)… however clients started telling me they also felt “lighter” and felt more able to find new perspective as if they were “lifting above” the energies that had confounded them. When I read the auras of clients working with this essence I saw part of their energy field like it was being lifted above the weight or trauma, the burdens they were carrying. I therefore changed the name to “Walk in the Clouds”… but in 2011 when it first went into the healing room at Coyote Moon, a crystal and book store aimed at enlightening the community in Baton Rouge, LA, the feedback I received led me to change the name one final time to “Lighten Up”. In fact, check out the testimonial below (after our sleep tip) from Molly McKenzie, former owner of Coyote Moon, who was pivotal in helping me launch the Shanti Kai™ Essence Line. Funner Fact: In fact it’s safe to say, without my dear friend Molly, Shanti Kai™ might not be here today. For it was her tireless support and encouragement, and the following she created in her community, on the other side of the country, that kept me going when I wasn’t sure it was worth the effort. Don’t get me wrong, I love and always have loved making essences… it’s just I had never planned to get this far into it; I had ZERO interest in launching a retail or commercial product, but Molly kept asking for more essences… so I kept making them… and somehow… over a decade later (and counting) here we are. Anyway, more on that in coming newsletters. For now… checkout this Tip on working with Lighten Up™ for times of stress (Tip #1) and for sleep (Tip #2).

Tip #1: During times of stress, or anytime you just feel you need to unwind, such as after work, spray Lighten Up™ over your third eye, temples, and back of the neck, as well as over any areas where you carry tension or stress in your body. If you like, you can also spray throughout your aura. If you have a moment, close your eyes and visualize yourself lifting up above any worries, stress or concerns into a space of lightness and ease.

Tip #2: If you’ve gone to bed upset, have had a fight in or around your bed, have a history of bad sleep, have watched violence on tv from bed, or even just been “triggered” looking at social media in bed … your sleep space needs to be cleared out. Spray on or around your bed and pillow. Allow up to 30 minutes for clearing before retiring.

Did You Know?  When you sleep, whatever is within ~5 feet of your aura is in your subtle energy field… you see … it is true after all that sleeping with your books under your pillow can make you smarter!!! But “too much” energy in your space can integrate into your auric field while you sleep, and interfere with the quality and depth of your rest! Most of you can’t afford to lose out on sleep quality … you need all you can get!! And that’s why I’m suggesting you spray your bed area with this in the evening and when you awaken. And, follow with Shanti Kai™ Sweet Dreams™ for best results!


[Lighten Up] is one of my very favorite Shanti Kai Essences and I use all of them. At the metaphysics store my family runs, we have psychic readers and other types of healing work going on and sometimes the energy was getting so heavy as the day progressed. It was as if people were unburdening themselves and leaving all the baggage at the store and the result was I felt a depressed feeling when I walked into that energy.

Normally I’d use Clear My Space but something told me to try Lighten Up, maybe because of the “Walk in the Clouds” part of the description… so anyway I started spraying this at the store in and near the reading room in between clients and it does just literally make you feel like you’ve lifted right above all of it and are up in the clouds. It gives you a completely different perspective on things – a higher perspective. Really worked for the heavy depressed energy.
