Reminder - the Chakras reflect developmental stages in our life and the types of associations and perceptions that are made during those foundational stages.
Focus: Naval Chakra - Chakra of Wisdom, Clarity and Self Esteem

The psychological function: will
Identity: ego identity
The shadow side of this chakra is: shame
The developmental stage: 18 - 42 months old

The affirmations associated with this chakra are regarding basic rights, such as “to act,” “to be free (as an individual),” etc. If these don’t resonate with you, or you feel a “no” when you think about yourself and these, that may be an indication that there is an imbalance within your naval chakra.
