Communicating your emotions and thoughts while going through infertility can be challenging, even for the most assertive person, but especially for those who are a bit more timid.

It could also be because of how one is inclined to speak or not speak on their behalf.

The third chakra also known as Manipura (lustrous gem in Sanskrit) is all about ‘personal power.’ When this area of the subtle body is in balance, we have good self-esteem; our personality is warm; we’re able to meet challenges; and we’re spontaneous, playful, or humorous. You might also think of it this way: You have agency or autonomy over your life’s direction (or not).

This week, we’re moving up our sushumna nadi (central energy channel) to our second chakra, svadhisthana (also written svadhistana).
