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.

ON THE EDGE #BookReview – A Lesson In Aloha – FREE for Download


 

ON THE EDGE Kindle CoverR. R. Harris is a witty wordsmith who weaves an evocative page-turner of mystery, adventure, and romance in ON THE EDGE: OF LAVA, LOVE AND TERROR.

Having lived through the lava scare on the Big Island, I can say this book totally captures the climate of that time. For those who don’t live in Hawaii, experience the suspense of living on the edge of an exploding volcano, multiplied by international terror and unrequited love.

But, there’s also inspiration to be gained, as an elderly Hawaiian County Councilwoman explains:

“Pele does not destroy, she creates, and what she creates is even greater than before, so maybe we needed a wake-up call to change our way of thinking. Maybe we needed to quit throwing around the word Aloha and then in the next breath curse our neighbor, or those who are different than us. Maybe we need to start living with Aloha, putting it into action and putting smiles on our faces. Maybe, Pele saw all of this need and was just helping us get started.”

ON THE EDGE is available FREE on Amazon Kindle through Sunday, August 5, and is also available in paperback.

Namaste!

#FreeKindle of CHAKRA SECRETS – Learn #SelfLove and More


Chakra Secrets coverHappy Valentine’s Day! There’s no better way to share the spirit of LOVE than to share a tale encompassing all my actions and emotions in the relationships arena – good and bad  – with a happy ending and an instant healing technique everyone can use.

So, I invite you to download a copy of CHAKRA SECRETS, which is FREE on Amazon Kindle through Thursday, February 15.

Here’s a review of the book by a reader on Amazon:

 Chakra Balancing, Past Lives, Yoga and More!

“Began this book at Midnight, read straight through until 4 a.m. and waited until the light of day to review.

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 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 look forward to sharing my story with YOU also – I invite you to download CHAKRA SECRETS.

Namaste!

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. You may be eating whatever is within reach to fill an emotional need, or cruising to the closest fast food window because you have no time to shop and cook a healthy meal.

So what should you eat? 

Take the quiz for each chakra in your FREE COPY of  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 have a vibrant, healthy and beautiful New Year and New You.

A review of THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET from Mary Jo Shaffer:

A Balanced Recipe for Vibrant Health and Well-Being
There are so many things that I love about this book; first and foremost is that Becca Chopra shares her extensive wisdom to help you optimally feed not only your physical body, but your subtle, or nonphysical body, as well. And she does this in a very balanced way, providing a virtual treasure chest of tools that include real, health-giving foods; meditations and breath work; affirmations and healing activities, and specific yoga poses.

Namaste!

Join me in celebrating True Food during my Birthday #Giveaway of The Chakra Energy Diet


P1070587When 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.

The word yoga means to yoke or unite, and often uses a physical practice to unite the body, mind and spirit. 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!

In this book, I share my passion to beThe Chakra Energy Diet cover 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, 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 I’m finishing up my Chakra Cookbook (two years in the writing), I’d like to share a FREE DOWNLOAD of The Chakra Energy Diet as I celebrate my birthday and continued health. It’s FREE today through Wednesday, March 8. 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 many more healthy and happy birthdays ahead for us all.

Namaste!

Love Offering – Free Download of The Chakra Diaries and MP3 Chakra Meditation…


Small book coverIt’s February, the month we celebrate Valentine’s Day, the month we celebrate love. However, love can be a slippery slope, especially if we haven’t had good role models, haven’t had a perfect childhood (and who has?). The problems we have faced and negative emotions in our life may have led to blocked chakras (energy centers) that keep us from experiencing the healing power of love.

In The Chakra Diaries, my first book, I share 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. It is FREE ON KINDLE through Wednesday, February 8.

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 love, forgiveness and energy 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: lost love, false beliefs, cancer, 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

MP3 CoverWhether you just love good storytelling, or want to be inspired, download The Chakra Diaries, and then download the FREE MP3 CHAKRA MEDITATIONS from the book, so you can be guided to a place of relaxation and balance. It contains the spiritual music of Aryeh David from his Love’s Whispers album. “Through all of life’s journey, love is actually the only thing there is,” says Aryeh. “May this music awaken the love within and remind you of who you truly are.”

Namaste!

How to reach your Health and Weight Goals in 2017 – #FreeKindle


The Chakra Energy Diet coverWe all want to be healthier and happier in the New Year. I want to help you make choices that will make you feel fantastic. It’s all about finding balance.

To help you meet your goals, I’m offering you a FREE download of The Chakra Energy Diet: The Right Food, Relaxation, Yoga & Exercise To Look and Feel your Best! through Sunday, January 8.

You’ll learn how stress can be sabotaging your wellbeing and your waistline, and how to instantly stop stress reactions.

Once you’re relaxed, I’ll help you find balance  – with the foods and lifestyle choices that will help you reach your perfect body weight, not sabotage your goals.

“This book is one of the most informative, extensive works I’ve found in achieving an optimal balance in body, mind and spirit. Filled with insights and useful tips the author has acquired through decades of practicing and teaching yoga, the book touches the core of how we should treat and honor our bodies—the only vessel we have to sail through our lives on Earth.

The author did an excellent job in presenting a comprehensive set of information on balancing each chakra: first by examining the emotional components, then by providing the most desirable foods and meditation mantra pertinent to specific chakra, along with the relevant yoga postures and exercises. Interesting recipes with pictures are added bonuses.

Particularly interesting was the notion of letting go of self-criticism when it comes to the issue of weight. In essence, the author stresses the importance of re-establishing the relationship with ourselves by cultivating self-love which is the basis of true healing.”

CHAKRA ENERGY FOODS

So what should you eat? First, see where stress is impacting your body and which chakra center needs to be strengthened. Learning more about the chakra system can help you determine what foods YOU personally need to ADD to nourish yourself, banish stress, and help you achieve your optimal weight. THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET helps you determine where you are lacking balance and how to regain it.

Are your finances in trouble? Are you feeling insecure? Do you need to perform better at work and get that raise or promotion? Strengthen your Root or 1st Chakra.

Do you want to spice up your sex life or feel more passionate and creative? Unblock your Sacral or 2nd Chakra.

Want to feel more self-confident and powerful in achieving your goals? Strengthen your Solar Plexus or 3rd Chakra.

Want to feel more love, be able to forgive past grievances, and connect better with your spouse, kids, friends and co-workers? Work on your 4th or Heart Chakra.

Afraid of public speaking? Want to be able to express your truth and be understood? Balance your 5th or Throat Chakra.

Want more inspiration on which path you should take in life? Want to increase your intuition and psychic abilities? Open your 6th or Third Eye Chakra.

Want to feel at one with all there is? More peace, harmony and connection to spirit? Work on your 7th or Crown Chakra.

You can balance all your chakras by eating a rainbow of colors… THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET contains full-color photos of my favorite recipes.

Using instant “stress-busting” techniques shared in the book, combined with eating more real food (not processed or packaged foodstuff), will help you feel both more calm and more energized. And when you drop the excess stress, and make more conscious food choices, you’ll feel and look better too.

Don’t wait to improve the health of yourself and your family – download THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET today.
