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!

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.

Learn to Balance Your Chakras in Meaningful Stories #FREEKINDLE


Chakra Diaries Book CoverIn The Chakra Diaries, my first book, I shared how to balance your own chakras as you learn how these “energy centers” affect love and loss, health and happiness, life and death for the participants in a chakra workshop.

Rather than a non-fiction encyclopedia of chakra attributes and signs of imbalance, the stories in The Chakra Diaries show the miracles that can happen through forgiveness, love and energy healing.

Download it for FREE through Thursday, Oct 24, and you’ll learn about:

  • Chakra Meditation
  • Chakra Yoga
  • Affirmations for Chakra Cleansing
  • Crystal Chakra Healing
  • Mind-Body Healing

This is not a how-to book. As one reader said, “It’s what happens when you put ancient teachings and modern lives into the same kitchen and raise the heat while cooking up great emotion. The Chakra Diaries is a literary romance, but with emotional, intellectual and spiritual nuances that would appeal to anyone interested in love, especially enlightened love. The villains in The Chakra Diaries are ones we all try to avoid: cancer, lost love, false beliefs, but it is these very perilous obstacles that drive the stories and finally lift the characters into their higher spiritual states through chakra healing and balancing.”

“The best way to learn about the chakras is through fascinating real-world stories, tense with melancholy and wild with humor, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in the book.” ~ Honolulu Weekly

Whether you just love good storytelling, or want to be inspired, download The Chakra Diaries, and then listen to the MP3 CHAKRA MEDITATIONS from the book, so you can lie down and be guided to a place of relaxation and balance… at  www.theChakras.org. I play these 10-minute guided meditation at the end of every yoga class, during Savasana.

Download a FREE copy of The Chakra Diaries – on the healing power of love


Free TCDIf your chakras are blocked or closed, your ability to give and receive love will also be blocked. Relationships will be rocky, and your ability to feel love and happiness will be locked away.

The participants in my Chakra Workshops keep journals which clearly show how a blocked chakra can also block love in your life.

My first book, based on these journals, The Chakra Diaries, shows how using meditations and the other tools described, can lead to happier endings.

“The Chakra Diaries is full of passion, sensuality, humor and great teachings. In stories of rugged roads, hopes, pleasures and dreams, we see 10 people’s lives weave together in a work of art for the heart!” ~  Marya Mann, PhD, Brave New Viewsletter

Until Valentine’s Day,  you can download a Free Kindle of The Chakra Diaries.

The book is full of life’s struggles (yes, even money issues) that can be fixed with love. Every difficult relationship or situation can be remedied with love. Any chakra blockage may be healed and opened through love. The healing power of love can change things in an instant.

HERE’S HOW BALANCED CHAKRAS CAN IMPROVE YOUR LOVE LIFE:
ROOT CHAKRA – When you feel grounded and safe, you feel like you belong and are able to be a more responsible partner.
SACRAL CHAKRA – When balanced, your creativity and sexuality are free-flowing, and you are able to be a more romantic partner.
SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA – With your personal power chakra balanced and your self-love in place, you will feel the confidence necessary to find and win your soul mate.
HEART CHAKRA – Love and compassion, the keynotes of a balanced Heart Chakra, will help you retain your relationships, through better or worse.
THROAT CHAKRA – With the ability to speak your truth about your needs and wants, your relationships will be more harmonious and fulfilling.
THIRD EYE CHAKRA – As you increase your intuition, you will have a closer bond, not only to your higher self, but to your loved ones.
CROWN CHAKRA – As you channel the divine love of the universe, you will be better able to act from a place of love in all areas of your life.

I’m hoping you’ll download a copy of The Chakra Diaries and be inspired by the healing power of love as well.

Namaste!

Stop Stressing Over Diets this Labor Day – Download this #FreeBook on Amazon


The Chakra Energy Diet coverKnowing which diet will work for you is just too much work – too much labor in my opinion. Paleo may work for some people, keto diets for some, anti-lectin or vegan for others – it all depends on your DNA, your constitution, medical condition and your belief system. I know, I’ve tried them all over the years.

Celebrate Labor Day by getting tips on how to stay in balance by adding color to your plate and your lifestyle – whether you’re an omnivore or vegetarian. This information and more is in THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET, free for download on Amazon through Wednesday, September 5.

First of all, if you’re blaming yourself for not sticking to your “diet” or for not being your “perfect weight,” stop. It’s not your fault. Rather, the way our bodies are programmed to handle stress is the problem. Stress is a double whammy for weight – it increases our appetites and leads to overeating or poor food choices, then makes our bodies hold on to the fat. The solution is not extreme dieting, which causes more stress, but knowing how to stop the stress reactions.

STRESS, THE NOT-SO-SILENT SABOTEUR
The Chakra Energy Diet explains how stress affects weight both physiologically and psychologically. 

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,” stimulates your appetite to replenish your food stores.

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.

Screen Shot 2017-12-22 at 7.49.21 AMTake the quiz for each chakra in your FREE COPY of  THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET, and learn exactly what you need to do 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 have a vibrant and healthy life.

Namaste!
