About Manipura Body & Mind
ABOUT MANIPURA BODY & MIND
Manipura Body & Mind was started in Boston, MA in 2015 by Reiki Master Amelia Childs. Childs wanted to create vegan products that were high quality and chemical-free, thus began Manipura. Everything we make is crafted with care and love, selecting only the finest ingredients and adding Reiki energy to every individual product before it is sealed and shipped out to our customers.
The name Manipura comes from the the Sanskrit name for the Third Chakra, in English the name translates to "Lustrous Gem" but in the West this yellow chakra is commonly referred to as The Solar Plexus Chakra. It is located around the navel and is a source of personal power, self-esteem, and the power of transformation.
We want each of our products to remind our customers of the importance of loving themselves, owning the power inside, and taking a moment from their day to remember to stay balanced through life.
Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy".
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?
The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. Literally translated from the Hindi it means ‘Wheel of spinning Energy’. Within our bodies you have seven of these major energy centers and many more minor ones.
Chakras regulate the flow of energy throughout the electrical network (meridians) that runs through the physical body. The body’s electrical system resembles the wiring in a house. It allows electrical current to be sent to every part, and is ready for use when needed.
Sometimes chakras become blocked because of stress, emotional or physical problems. The consequence of irregular energy flow may result in physical illness and discomfort or a sense of being mentally and emotionally out of balance.
