LOVE YOUR #CHAKRAS – DOWNLOAD A #FREE COPY OF THE CHAKRA DIARIES


Balance your Chakras, Balance your LOVE Life!

Do you want to spice up your sex life or feel more passionate, graceful, and creative? Unblocking your Sacral or 2nd Chakra may be the key. It is an especially important chakra for women to keep in balance, connecting you to your passion and to the Divine Feminine.

There are seven major chakras in our energy field that each affect our emotional and physical health in a different way. Two characters in The Chakra Diaries have unbalanced Sacral Chakras – one, a woman in her forties, Deborah has lost her libido, the other, Sarah, a young woman, is both unsure of her sexual orientation and promiscuous. Chakra balancing brings them back to a space of confidence and creativity where they are better able to trust their feminine intuition and make true love connections.

Here’s a short excerpt from Deborah’s diary, in which her libido comes alive:

Alright, I was frustrated with the new software package and didn’t want to buzz my assistant again for help. So I retreated to my emails. There it was. The type should have been in bright orange…

     “Bon Jour, Blonde Goddess” read the subject line. Delete or open, that was the decision at my fingertips. Liking “goddess” rather than “dried up old crone,” I decided to open, hoping it wasn’t another offer for penile enlargement drugs at a discount. 

     The text didn’t disappoint. It described how the sender, whose return address was TantricOne, had dreamt of me the night before and had awoken in a tangle of sweaty sheets, his body having made a promise that his mind must fulfill. He knew how to write a love scene, describing in luscious detail how he had started kissing the tip of my perfect nose, pausing for the briefest caress at my full, sensuous lips down the slope of my silky white throat, into that heart throb of deep cleavage awaiting him between my bountiful breasts, skating the circle of creation that formed my navel, then tracing the contours of each heavenly hip bone before licking the smooth-downed valley of my stomach…. and then, he woke up.

     OK, that was me paraphrasing a two-page dreamscape from a master writer. Me, the owner of the dead second chakra, now had small drops of sweat pooling in my deep cleavage, tingles in the area below my smooth, flat stomach, and a shortness of breath that could only mean I was turned on or having my first hot flash.

      My assistant came in, looking over my shoulder in her nosy way, to remind me of my 10 am meeting, and I pressed “delete” before her eyes could focus on the sultry text on the screen.

 
Located at the lower abdomen, right at the cervix, the Sacral Chakra governs how we relate to others and the flow of our feelings and expression in art, music, dance and living. It is the seat of our sexuality, the pleasure chakra that turns us on and is considered by many to be the doorway into creation itself.

When this chakra is balanced, you can embrace creativity with open arms, whether it is expressed through dance, yoga, swimming, sex, singing praises to the Divine, painting to celebrate self-awareness, or cooking for your inner goddess.

A Novel Look at Chakra Healing ~ FREE Download this Weekend


“As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.” ~ Rumi

So starts my book, Chakra Secrets, FREE for download this weekend on Amazon.

I invite you to share in the secrets I learned along the way to love and happiness in Part I of the book, and learn the mind-body tool you can use anytime, anywhere, to free yourself from pain and tension in Part II.

TO CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY…

You can get your Kindle version of Chakra Secrets for FREE today through July 3! I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as the Happy Bookworm, who wrote:

“I finished Chakra Secrets the morning after I got it. I couldn’t put it down! From the very beginning, this book reached deep inside my soul and didn’t let go. I was inspired by both this book and it’s predecessor, The Chakra Diaries. After reading them, I felt as though anything was possible and I am capable of accomplishing great things, whether they be large or small. Every one of my emotions was touched to its very core. This is one of those rare books that I would enjoy reading over and over again.” ~ Happy Bookworm

If you think this book is a how-to chakra tome, you’ll be surprised. As one reader summarized:

“All of the cliches fit: cliff hanger, couldn’t put it down, fast-paced, brilliant writing…yes, all that with an important message: life is the same for everyone, we hurt, we grieve, we suffer, we have moments of joy and passion, and we are all subject to the same feelings.
We are born and re-born both physically, as in reincarnation, and spiritually, as in the evolution of the soul…and there are very real modalities that we can employ to overcome our private agonies and move along our spiritual path to fuse with the light. That’s the simplistic version.
Author Becca Chopra put herself out on a limb with this autobiographical novel in which she introduces powerful, spiritual healing modalities in a very earthy way. She covers yogis gone wild, drugs, passion, longing, as she takes you on a breathless journey from actress to respected yoga teacher, an amazing roller coaster ride that introduces yoga, rainbow tantra, tantric gurus, macrobiotic diet, past life regression, acro-yoga, Ho’opono’pono and a very effective Huna Dynamind technique which can be practiced at home.

The storyline is complex yet unfolds simply and easily, propelling the reader right to the happy ending. And after all the twists and turns, one is certainly ready for that relaxing out-breath and release.”

I hope you also find Chakra Secrets entertaining, enlightening and inspirational. For daily inspiration, join me on Facebook.

Namaste!

Conquer #Stress, Dis-ease and Weight Issues By Balancing Your #Chakras


When I started practicing yoga twenty years ago to gain more flexibility and center myself, I had no idea that the journey would take me into studying the chakras, true wellbeing and holistic healing in general.

What began as a form of exercise on the mat has turned into daylong mindfulness about how the things I do and the food I eat can lead to a healthier and happier life.

The Chakra Energy Diet: The Right Food, Relaxation, Yoga & Exercise To Look and Feel Your Best!

The Chakra Energy Diet cover

In this book, I share my passion to be mindful of how we choose to nourish ourselves. I have found that the best place for EVERYONE to start is by eating fresh, whole foods (grown organically, without chemicals and GMOs), focusing on the colorful array of vegetables and fruit that are available in your area, and reducing the amount of processed foods in your diet.

As everyone can better fight the ongoing pandemic by boosting their immunity and reaching their ideal weight, I’d like to offer a FREE DOWNLOAD of The Chakra Energy Diet. It’s FREE today through Tuesday, April 20. Please feel free to share this giveaway with your friends.

EXCERPT FROM THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET

Many people say they’re not happy with their bodies, that they’ve tried every new diet, but in the end, NO amount of willpower can stop them from gaining the weight back later. News flash: Going on an imbalanced diet will only cause your body to attempt to recover from the “famine” and cause you to “feast.”

So, what we need is balance. Looking for answers took me right to the CHAKRAS, the energy centers in our bodies. They offer CLUES on where we’re out of balance and which foods will give us the energy we need.

The Chakra Energy Diet is anything but a traditional diet. It’s a way of using the chakras to tell us what we may want to add or change in our lives to love how we look and feel.

If you’re stressed out, feeling not so great, unhappy with the way you look, or out-of-control with food cravings, your chakras are not balanced. And shaking things up a bit – especially your food and activity choices – can dramatically help your stress level, your chakra balance, and yes, the way you look and feel.

It’s a two-way street… stressors can cause chakra imbalances, which then reflect areas of your life that need healing. Symptoms of imbalance – whether physical or emotional pain – give us useful clues on how we can change our lives for the better.

So, why DO we overeat and what can we do about it? First of all, realize it’s not YOUR fault, and let go of any self-criticism.

Before we go any further, I want to make this very clear: IF YOU THINK YOU’RE OVERWEIGHT, HAVE NO SELF-CONTROL, NO WILLPOWER, OR SHOULD HAVE A BETTER BODY, IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT!

SO, WHAT’S AT FAULT?

Learn how to conquer the stress in your life that is a double whammy to sabotage your weight and your health – download The Chakra Energy Diet today. Here’s to health and happiness for us all.

Namaste!

Are you #Stressed-Out Because of the #Coronavirus?


Stay Healthy and Calm During the Pandemic…

The Right Food, Relaxation, Yoga & Exercise To Look and Feel your Best!

The Chakra Energy Diet cover

Ancient sages and modern medicine agree that stress is at the root of all disease. You can’t be stressed and healing at the same time. The way our bodies are programmed to handle stress is the problem.

If you’re worried about catching the Coronavirus, please increase the time you spend on self-care. THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET will point you in the right direction.

STRESS, THE NOT-SO-SILENT SABOTEUR
An example of how stress sabotages our health can be seen on our scales. Stress affects our weight both physiologically and psychologically. We’ve all experienced our stomachs do a flip-flop when we’re anxious. Ann Doherty, RN, MS, CDE (certified diabetes educator), explains during her “Art of Stress Management” workshops, just what stress can do to your stomach and the rest of your body…

Physiologically, when you’re under stress, your digestion is impaired and you can’t receive the nourishment from the food you eat. Once the effects of adrenaline wear off, cortisol, known as the “stress hormone,” starts signaling the body to replenish your food stores.

Cortisol is a hormone that stimulates fat and carbohydrate metabolism for fast energy, and stimulates the release of insulin to maintain blood sugar levels. So, when stress causes your cortisol to surge, your appetite will be stimulated as well. Excess cortisol also slows down your metabolism, because your body wants to maintain an adequate supply of glucose to deal with the next “threat.”

The disruption of cortisol secretion during the “fight or flight” response may not only lead to weight gain, but it can also put that weight exactly where you don’t want it – in your belly. Studies have shown that stress and elevated cortisol tend to cause fat deposits in the abdominal area, which is strongly related to Syndrome X, the cluster of risk factors associated with heart disease.

Over millennia, our bodies have also been programmed to store up against famine… we’re biologically adapted to want more sugar and fat, which meant survival for our ancestors. But today, there’s no longer feast or famine like the hunter/gatherers encountered. And when they found food, it usually contained a high amount of nutrition and was low in calories. Our modern-day processed foods are often high in empty calories and low in nutrients, so we keep craving more and more.

When under stress, doesn’t your willpower go out the window? Most people are driven to eat comfort foods when stressed out, even if they’re not hungry. And comfort foods are usually high-fat, sugary, or salty foods.

Chakra Foods

So what should you eat? Take the quiz for each chakra in THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET, and learn exactly what foods YOU personally need to ADD to nourish yourself, banish stress, and help you achieve your optimal weight.

You’ll find out which of your chakras is under stress, and learn the best foods, relaxation techniques, yoga and exercise to balance your chakras and stay vibrant, healthy and beautiful.

Here’s to a healthy new world!

Namaste!

A Recipe for #Magic – “The Magic Seeker” by Marla Martenson


Reading The Magic Seeker by Marla Martenson took me out of the doldrums of 2020, inspiring me to search for more magic in the new year. Or, as Marla put it so beautifully, to join those “…taking that leap of faith to try new things and go for their dreams.”

Those of us who seek spiritual connection, and search for meaning in everyday life, will applaud Marla’s courage and tenacity in following her own guidance despite grumblings from her beloved husband. I think many of us have been in her shoes and benefit from learning how she chose to change her own way of communicating with her spouse, rather than trying to change him. That happened as a result of changing herself.

Marla’s adventurous spiritual quest leads her to communicate with the spirit of Chief Red Eagle, a Native American message bearer from the 19th century who is channeled by a powerful shaman.

Red Eagle imparts wisdom in many different areas. I loved when he explained that spiritual masters make every single thing in their life a meditation, including dealing with an unpleasant person or situation. “The master makes everything one experience,” he explains.

Red Eagle leads the author to embody the wisdom we all know–that we alone are responsible for our happiness, that love is a personal relationship with ourself. While you may feel unhappy or victimized by someone else, he says, you are dealing with YOUR reactions and your triggers and what is mirrored in the other person. Catching triggers and mastering emotional wellness becomes a goal for Marla and one we can all work to accomplish. Then, as Red Eagle essentializes, “Magic will run through your fingertips because you have mastered your energy.”

Marla’s memoir is fun and funny as well as spiritually inspiring as we watch her pratfalls and successes. We meet not only channeled spirits, her angels and guides, but her mother Donna Reed, her matchmaking clients and colleagues, her long-term friends and their problems–some familiar and some unusual. But Marla dips into her many spiritual tools to find answers, not only for herself but for all.

Whether you’re into spirit channeling, Reiki, tarot card readings, angels and guides, or just adding a little peace into your life, dip into The Magic Seeker and enjoy the evolution of Marla’s healing abilities.

Following is my interview with Marla Martenson, author of The Magic Seeker and three previous memoirs: Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker, Hearts on the Line and The Buddha Made Me Do It.

1) What would you like readers to take away from reading your book?

My intention in The Magic Seeker is to guide the reader to realize all of the places that magic exists in themselves and in others, and to come away with a knowing of why they are here. It is possible to heal, and to step fully into their multi-dimensional selves. 

2) As we all look for what we learned from the challenges of 2020, can you explain how the pandemic helped you better realize your life’s purpose and changed you and your perspective?

The pandemic really shined a light on the fact that we have to become self-reliant, super creative and high vibe. We saw businesses shut down and destroyed overnight, never to reopen again and many traditional jobs lost. Fear, stress and panic emerged in the blink of an eye. So, what shifted in me was the fact that since nothing is guaranteed and nothing stays the same, then what in the heck do I have to lose by bringing out all of my gifts, talents, dreams and magic in a massive way. I decided to no longer play small, and to shine my light to lead others into their magic as well. 

3) What do you recommend to readers who want more magic in their lives? 

I recommend thinking back to when you were a kid, and what lit you up then. As kids, we were jumping in puddles, finger painting, and talking to our “invisible friends” without apology or worrying about what others might think. Bring back that childlike energy and there you will find magic. 

4) What specific ways do you offer to help people connect to higher planes of energy?

I offer distance energy healing sessions, and I also lead a group every Saturday evening called Marla’s Magical Message Circle on Zoom, where I send energy, give a short talk and then come around and channel personal messages from the spirit guides. 

5) What do you see as your path going forward?

My next chapter in life is coaching. I became certified in 2020 as a Transformational Life Coach for women specializing in boundaries. I will also continue with my psychic and channeling work to bring messages through from the spirit guides for people. 

6) How can readers connect with you?

A Kindle Unlimited version and a paperback of The Magic Seeker are available on Amazon.com.

Six Ways to Reduce Anxiety


 

paradigmshift

If you are in an emotional rut—cycling from fear, anger, anxiety, and sadness—you are not alone. Every human being on this planet has been impacted in a few short weeks and, with that, comes strong emotions. The question is: What if how you feel today can help you transform every area of your life?

Here are some key steps on how to turn high emotion to your higher self.

1. Create Awareness

What pain is to the body, emotions are to the mind. Emotions are signals or cues that inform you that something is wrong and needs to be fixed. They arise in the physical body before they are registered in the mind and categorized as “anxiety.”

When you become aware of feelings and sensations in your body, you are able to lessen the experience of them. Why? Emotions are rises and falls of impulses in the body. The fastest way to settle emotions and create awareness is through meditation. When you meditate, you bypass inner noise and connect with the quiet that’s hidden under all stuff that goes through your head. When you meditate, your body and mind rest. At the same time, you become aware and boundless.

2. Ask Yourself This Question

When you are gripped with fear, the best way to break that hold is to challenge it with a question. Doing so leads to distracting your emotions and engaging your logical mind to create an association between the event and the emotion.

Ask yourself: “What makes my thoughts race?” Watching or reading the headlines. Working through the evening. Not getting enough sleep. Something else. Jot it down and begin to notice a trend or pattern. Start to become aware of how these patterns come together to create a habit or story that is holding you back from living a life you really want. Staying up late, for instance, can get in the way of getting a good night’s sleep.

3. Journal Daily

Journaling for no more than 10 minutes is very helpful. It brings into focus all that matters right now. Using a time-limit allows you to vent on paper without it taking over your headspace. Rather than using a laptop or mobile phone, write down what’s on your mind. The simple act of writing allows you to discharge pent-up tension.

At the end of the week, go over your entries and notice if you’ve had a change of perspective, idea, feeling, thought, or action. Simply highlight it. Review the highlighted part a few weeks later and notice the change.

4. Practice Gratitude

This one word captures it all. Gratitude is the single best way to harness the power of intention and get more of what you want into your life. Why? When a thought sticks in your head, it impacts your mood—even your day.

To incorporate gratitude into a mindful practice, find a comfortable place to rest for a few minutes. And take the time to reflect in detail about five to six things you are grateful for and loved today. Describe them in a bit of detail (e.g., being able to dip a chunky chocolate chip cookie into some yummy tea, having it practically melt in your mouth).

Journaling and gratitude go hand in hand; when you begin to focus your attention on what you love in your life, the issues that create worry fade into the background. How? As a human, you multitask but you pay full attention to one thing at a time.

5. Make a Paradigm Shift

Making a paradigm shift doesn’t take years. It’s not about stepping into a new narrative or reframing the problem so that coping is possible. A paradigm shift doesn’t seek to postpone or maneuver around what’s keeping you up at night; it creates a new possibility for greater self-sufficiency. When you have control over your thoughts, emotions, and actions, you feel good. The fastest way to create a paradigm shift isn’t about reliving the painful past, it is about bypassing it and creating greater good for yourself and others in your world.

Since your brain has the capacity to heal, adapt, and form new connections, the building blocks of self-sufficiency center around self-mastery that create habits to support mental hygiene. How do you do this? One way is through meditation. A report of the study from the Harvard Gazette published in Psychiatry Research Neuroimaging has shown that meditation changes the brain structure. When you shift from the external world to the internal world, you gain insights, information, and deep connection to yourself. It decreases anxiety and increases feelings of pleasure. As you trigger the pleasure chemicals in the brain, you decrease the overactivation of “fight-or-flight” response. There is no better time than right now to start meditating.

6. Create Emotional Safety

The fastest way to create emotional safety is to acknowledge you are safe right now. Although these are uncertain times, it is certain that this too has an expiration date. For most people, when they have control over their outcome, they feel safer. The fastest way to create emotional safety is to start turning your self-care into your personal mental healthcare. Make today the day to start a breathing exercise for two minutes, give yourself the permission to rest and kick your feet up for two minutes, or list all you are grateful for within two minutes.

Make mental hygiene a priority right now. Through some of the mental hygiene steps listed here, you can start to feel better and have more emotional security. Bit by bit, you can create the life you have always wanted—there is no better time than the present.
