About our logo:
The ten petal lotus flower is the symbol of the third chakra also called the Solar Plexus chakra, or Manipura. It governs the digestive system including the stomach, small intestine, liver, spleen, and pancreas. When the energies of this chakra are repressed, feelings are held back and there is inner turmoil. Imbalances can lead to digestive problems, ulcers, diabetes, hypo/hyperglycemia, and even eating disorders. When the energies of this chakra are balanced, emotions are felt and expressed. We enjoy well-being and have a clear sense of personal self-determination.
The chakras are associated with certain body parts, glands, elements, colors, senses, mantras (sounds), gems, etc.
