We are all comprised of 5 tattvas or elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether.
If the tattvas are balanced and strong, as well as in the proper areas of the body, then you can repel stress, trauma, and illness and magnetize health, prosperity and alignment.
The Agni tattva - Fire - is for purifying and transforming and is an agent for healing.
The Agni tattva is connected to the third chakra since this solar plexus nerve cluster is dominated by fire. Without a strong and balanced third chakra, despite our best efforts, our intentions and ideas cannot come into full fruition.
The third chakra is where we manifest our life’s purpose and is masculine in essence: it initiates action, assertiveness, boundaries, and leadership. We all have masculine energy within and its consciousness is being activated this year; moreover, conscious masculinity is not the same as toxic masculinity and that is what we are witnessing crumble this year - the unconscious patriarchy.
We are in a year of 3 energy, (2019 | 2+0+1+9 = 12 | 1+2= 3) meaning we are being called into empowerment at the solar plexus chakra. This means we are going to be tested when it comes to our self-worth, boundaries, digestion, addiction, control, resentment and our levels of worrying about the future and will be asked to give way to the feminine qualities of trust, surrender, flow, allowance, and receptivity. The conscious masculine knows how to hold space for these feminine qualities within and isn’t threatened by it.
The solar energy is calling us to TRUST through vulnerability.
It also means the archetypal patterns in the third chakra are strong this year and we need to take a good look at how we are plugging into these patterns for better or for worse.
How are you showing up with compassion but with boundaries?
Do you feel worthy of the dreams inside your heart? If not, why?
How are you stepping into your role as leader? Do you feel like a leader? If not, why?
How much energy do you have on the daily? - If you’re tired often, what’s one thing you can do today to increase your vitality?
Are you being of service to yourself or others? If not, what’s stopping you?
Do you feel angry often? If so, do you shame yourself for that anger?
These are just a few questions to consider as we continue to move through the fire within. One thing that is important to note is that anger is actually a tool to transmute lower vibratory frequencies in the body as long as it’s not directed at others. Use your fire to transform anger into commitment and fuel you into change!
The third chakra is the bio-hackers system into the entire chakra system: if you can build solar strength in the navel you can increase your levels of energy, open and balance the other chakras, and develop strong boundaries and self-worth that leads to authenticity and expansion. In kundalini yoga we know the navel is the hub of 72,000 nadis or meridian points and when we develop that strength we awaken the reserve of energy within that leads us into knowing and manifesting our life’s mission: this means making better decisions that serve the greater good, decisions that are creative and life giving and empowering for ourselves and others. One of the best decisions you can make this year is developing a journal and meditatitation practice. The benefits of meditation are becoming more and more well known, but as we move into an global online world (it’s estimated that by 2020 100% of the world will have access to the internet) we will increasingly need tools to reset and reprogram the quantity of input our nervous systems receive.
Yogis have long recognized that the best decision-making takes place when the left and right hemispheres of the brain are balanced and synchronized. Since the left brain questions and the right brain accepts, an individual's analytical and creative thought processes are most effective when a state of balance in neutrality is achieved.
Yoga and meditation are effective technologies for clearing the clutter of the mind's incessant chatter to reach a state of inner quietude where intuition flows and the solutions to even the toughest problems can be discovered. - Yogi Bhajan

Humanity needs you but first you must be willing to look within, maybe deeper, discover your inherent worth, and show up as your most passionate and compassionate self.
