The 3rd, or Manipura chakra located behind the navel, radiates the fire element in bright yellow. The qualities of this chakra – for fiery, expressive self-control and balanced exuberance – burn brightly in these vibrant flower essences:
Cherry Essence for cheerfulness when this fire burns steady and positive, clearing away the ashes of all dross that is not pure happiness.
Orange Essence for enthusiasm, no matter how longstanding or deep our trials run, is the light at the end of the tunnel.
Pineapple Essence for self-assurance, self-worth, and self-knowing, builds an aura of charisma, abundance, and wealth on all levels, including an expansion of the little self, or ego, into a higher state of Self-awareness. This flower essence helps us to manifest our dreams.

Meditation on the Third Chakra: Fire Element
Visualize a fire either outside yourself or at the spiritual eye. Feel that you are offering into that fire all your attachments, all your faults. Review your days activities and offer into the flames any wrong thought, any wrong deed. Feel them being burned away, joyfully! There is no pain in this kind of purifying fire, rather just an offering up through your own will power, of all ego, all fear, all attachment, anger, selfishness, and indifference. Feel your freedom as you release these things.
Search your heart for any kind of attachment. Reach in mentally and take it from your heart and throw it into that fire. Then burn them; purify them, offering them all up to God.
Now enter mentally into that purifying fire yourself. From outside it seems hot, but as you get into it, it feels cool, pleasant, joyful burning up your pride, burning all sorrows, and all regrets. Everything is going up in flames and becoming free in the skies of Spirit until you feel that you have no definition at all except that infinite bliss.
In meditation, mentally cast all your limitations of thought, desire, and self-willinto a divine fire to be melted and purified into cosmic wisdom and love. Affirm mentally, “I cast my thoughts, desires, and all past karma into Thy flames of love. Make me whole! Make me pure! Make me one with Thee!

Testimonials for the Flower Essences
My husband, myself and my 2 children have been using the flower essences for the last 4 months and I feel they have really addressed and dealt with problems that we knew and many we didn’t know of. The essences are very powerful and deeply spiritual in nature. My family started with orange and strawberry flower essence and within a week of taking them we are felt uplifted and with a deeper and higher energy and free from a many issues. Since then we have taken many different ones as had been indicated by the test and each time the essence prescribed has been exactly what was needed to fix the problem at that point in time. For us the essences have opened a new, deep, and very powerful door allowing us to improve ourselves and evolve. I deeply recommend everyone should take them. ~ S.P., New Delhi

I was going through a ‘big’ situation of change of work, from working in a comfortable job as a Head of Finance in a large multinational company, to deciding to start my entrepreneurship in the area that really attracted me of people development as a trainer and life coach. I was badly ‘caught’ in the test, as it felt like a very confusing change to me. My mind was mostly puzzled, unclear and I really didn’t know if I was even thinking right! The only thing I was sure of then, was that I needed to somehow put all my energies in trying to do what felt right, even if it was very difficult. It was the tomato flower essence that provided that extra Mental Strength and ability to Endure with a deep sense of patience and calmness. With endurance came also the ability to Focus and I found my-self changing almost immediately and started to view ‘difficulties’ on the way, as ‘opportunities’! ~ Dipti Bhatia, Gurgaon
I am a homeopathic practitioner since 18 years. I have gone through the book The Essential Flower Essence Handbook. After my in-depth studies, I prescribed more than 100 essences to my patients, especially on their mood and nature. I used Avocado Essence for memory and concentration in school children and observed their results are improving from their next test only. I used Cherry Essence for cheerfulness and Pineapple for confidence. In the next follow up patients reported that they feel improvement as soon as they took the first drop. Many patients have started reading The Essential Flower Essences Handbook and want to know more about the essences for their use and help others also. ~ Dr. Ketan Shah, MD (Homeopath), Ahmedabad
I have two sons, both are very active children. My elder son is diagnosed with ADHD (mild). I get overworked due to many personal reasons and i tend to loose my peace and sense of balance. I have been working very hard with my elder one, but now seems to loose my patience. One day on some refernce i contacted Dipti ji and she adviced Tomato and Spinach essences for me. This worked very well, specially Spinach essence. I am trying Avocado essence for my child now. ~ R.S.
Jena came from North East and joined me as assistant sales executive in my office. First week went off well. The second week I found her disturbed and most distracted. Turned out she had lost her mother some time back and she was missing her that day. And all in all she was demotivated to concentrate on work. Corn Essence was handy. One dose under the tongue and 20 minutes later Jena was sitting in front of me asking me how to deal with a certain difficult customer! ~ Kamini, Bangalore
