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!

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.

Namaste!

Chakra Secrets #FreeKindle about the Rugged Road to Health and Happiness


Chakra SecretsThere’s no better way to share the holiday spirit than to share a tale encompassing all my actions and emotions – good and bad – with a happy ending and an instant healing technique everyone can use. So, I invite you to download a FREE copy of CHAKRA SECRETS through Friday, December 23.

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

 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 – the Kindle version can be read on virtually ANY smart device.

PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND MAY YOU ALL ENJOY THIS HEALING JOURNEY.

Namaste!

THE CHAKRA SECRET BY MICHELLE HASTIE – REVIEW AND AUTHOR INTERVIEW


CS CoverKnowledge about our chakras can give us information on where we’re out of balance and where we need to focus more attention to improve our health and lives. In The Chakra Secret: What Your Body is Telling You, Michelle Hastie helps you understand the chakras in very easy-to-understand terms so you can use them to understand why you may be experiencing physical problems.

Throughout her min-e-book™, Michelle Hastie teaches how each energy center shares wisdom that correlates with your mental and emotional states and how that wisdom manifests in the physical body. And she explains how to tune into the chakras to find paths back to living naturally, freely and peacefully.

Michelle recommends small daily changes that can lead to dramatic results. As she moves through the seven major chakras, she discusses the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual components of each, guiding the reader to understand how to get back into alignment.

Talking about diet and weight, Michelle zeros in on the body’s wisdom, e.g., she says weight gain isn’t happening to you, but for you. She explains how weight issues can be associated with different chakras and recommends shifting your focus off of weight loss or changing your body, and instead looking at the ways you can increase self-care and self-esteem (associated with the Sacral Chakra) by choosing healthy foods and connecting to your unique abilities.

The Chakra Secret provides exercises and yoga poses, affirmations, meditations and a chakra recipe from Chef Maria Schonder for each chakra. Plus, Michelle shares her own life lessons, such as “You control nothing so stop trying.” This is especially important in balancing the Crown Chakra, surrendering to faith and trust and starting a spiritual practice.

The Chakra Secret provides wonderful insight on how we can take responsibility for our lives, living in choice instead of in reaction. And how we can live in balance and flow, trusting that all will be well.

Author Michelle Hastie has a background in personal training, weight-loss coaching, food psychology, neuro-linguistic programming, and yoga. Here she answers my questions about her latest book:

BECCA: What message would you most like readers to take away from The Chakra Secret?

MICHELLE: I want readers to feel like they can heal their bodies through many different modalities. The worst feeling in the world is when you have a pain or disease and nothing works to alleviate it. Hopefully with this book they can begin to think outside the box and take care of their body in a way that haven’t yet thought of or tried.

Becca: As a weight loss coach, what have you found to be the most common misconceptions around dieting?

Michelle: The most common misconception about dieting is that you can attack it with intellect. Most people load up on nutrition and/or fitness information to become an expert in health. The solution to losing weight is not to use your head but to use your body. Use your body sensations and feelings to guide you through your weight loss journey. Become an expert not in health but in you.

Learn how to feel hunger and fullness in your body. Learn which foods work and don’t work in your body. Learn what movements feel good and which ones feel punishing. Learn how to dress your body so that your clothes are flattering today, not once the weight comes off. Most of all become friends with your body instead of viewing your body as the enemy.

Becca: What do you find is the best way to discover which chakra(s) may be blocked before they cause physical issues?

Michelle: Assuming one knows where the chakras are located, the first place to start is with your own intuition. Do you feel as if one chakra is calling to you simply based on where it is located? Learn about the chakras and what each center represents. Ask yourself if you could improve upon these centers based on their location and what they represent. To keep your chakras in balance, live a life of balance. Be open and honest with yourself and the kind of life you desire to live. Then take every step necessary to fulfill your desires.

Becca: You emphasize becoming a human “being” rather than a human “doing.” Any tips for that?

Michelle: We live in a society that has labeled “just being” as unproductive. Most people call “just being” “doing nothing.” Therefore the first tip is to discontinue this label as it’s untrue. Then you will want to be honest with yourself and how you feel about rest. If you spend a day in rest do you feel lazy? Are you truly resting with presence or are you checking out with TV, food or drugs/alcohol? In order to be a human “being” you must become at peace with this idea of presence in all things. When you do have downtime how can you use it to relax and be present at the same time?

Becca: You recommend staying present in the moment. How can that best be achieved?

Michelle: The easiest way to stay present is to ask yourself what you want. If you are home after a long day of work instead of checking out with food, alcohol or TV ask yourself what do I want to do or how do I want to feel. Take that extra moment to answer this question before you go into auto-pilot and just do what you have always done.

Oftentimes we struggle with staying present because there are some thoughts or feelings that we don’t want to acknowledge. Prepare yourself with a journal or meditation to allow these thoughts or feelings to be acknowledged and then be honest about what you really would like to do with your time.

Becca: What makes YOU feel inspired?

Michelle: Music makes me feel inspired. Moving my body makes me feel inspired. Cuddling my dogs, kissing my husband or watching my baby laugh makes me feel inspired. But most of all, what makes me feel inspired is balance. I work very hard to never over-fill my cup. If I have been working a lot, I take breaks. If I have been lifting weights a lot, I do yoga. If I have been with my baby a lot, I hang with just my girlfriends. I seek to live a life of balance. This allows me to avoid burnout and survive so that I can thrive and truly live passionately.

Eat Right with THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET – Free Download


The Chakra Energy Diet coverAre you eating right? Do you understand that it’s not your fault if you’re not? Learn what may be sabotaging your best efforts to be as healthy and energetic as possible… Get over the mid-summer blues with a fresh approach to choosing the right foods for your particular needs, based on the rainbow chakra system…

The Chakra Energy Diet is FREE FOR DOWNLOAD to any reading device through Friday, July 17th! Just CLICK HERE<<<<<<<

Why did I write The Chakra Energy Diet? So many of my friends and students have told me that they’ve tried every diet, but in the end, NO amount of willpower can stop them from gaining back the weight and more. Looking for answers took me right to the Chakras, and how we need to feed them with food that’s full of energy instead of processed, addictive, chemical-laden ingredients.

Ann Doherty, RN, CDE, a Diabetes Educator, and Serge Kahili King, PhD, a Huna healer, added their extensive knowledge on how we’re sabotaged by our own bodies’ stress responses and by the food industry to have cravings and overeat. Even better – they offer stress-busting solutions. Look with me at which of your chakras have been stressed, and follow my easy suggestions to quickly move into balance.

Here’s what one reviewer, Mary Jo Shaffer, Co-Owner of Heart Projects and author of Rainbow Eyes: Chakramid Reflections, said about The Chakra Energy Diet:

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.

Becca begins by pointing out the breakdown in the conventional American diet, which is loaded with sugar, processed foods, GMOs and soda. Then she points the way to a better way of eating that actually nourishes body, mind and spirit. She also speaks at length about how stress and your own insecurities about your body can stand in the way of you reaching your health and weight goals and how you can lift those blocks.

Next, taking you on a systematic journey through your chakras, Becca introduces each of these seven major energy centers to you and helps you to pinpoint your own weaknesses and imbalances. She then offers a wealth of information for you to use in nourishing your physical body and revitalizing your chakra system.

The book ends with appendixes that include a “Chakra Yoga Flow” sequence to balance your seven chakras and also “The Circle of Joy Breath” that integrates Body, Mind and Spirit. The instructions are clear and detailed enough so that even a beginner can complete the sequences.

All in all, this delightful, easy-to-read guidebook is a feast for the senses served up in Becca’s expressive writing style, complemented by beautiful photography of food recipes and yoga poses.

Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life – FREE KINDLE


Download FREE on Amazon KindleI receive emails every day offering some new (and very expensive) salve, cream or pill for pain relief. All because I bought my mother an ointment for her arthritic knees. Then, I taught her Dynamind, and she now uses this mind-body technique to relieve not only any pain in her knees, but her tension headaches too… balancing her Root and Third Eye Chakras.

I first introduced Dynamind in my book, Chakra Secrets, and over a million people around the world are using it to heal themselves of pain and emotional distress, according to its developer, Hawaiian shaman, Serge Kahili King, Ph.D.  In Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life (FREE today and tomorrow on Amazon Kindle) I show how to use DYNAMIND adapted for each chakra, which I find makes it even more effective as an “instant” healing technique.

What have others had to say about this method of chakra healing?

“In this book, Becca Chopra shares how to relax the body and mind enough so that our healing energy can flow freely through our chakras. I learned this “instant healing” Dynamind technique from Serge Kahili King at our yearly Hawaii Health Getaway, but find it even more effective in relieving tension and pain when coupled with chakra visualization and toning, as Becca Chopra describes. Just like regular exercise can keep one’s body and mind toned, using the Dynamind Toners described in this book can keep your chakras and your body in balance.” ~ Ann Doherty, RN, CDE

“I read this book and another of Becca’s, checked out her website, and viewed her video that follows this book. For the first time in 2 years, I am pain free. I am more at peace. THANKS!” ~ Amazon reviewer

Yes, there’s even a video which you can also download for FREE, in which you can follow along as I apply Dynamind to healing pain, aches, and emotional problems associated with each chakra. Balance and Tone Your Chakras can be downloaded on my website at www.theChakras.org.

Happy healing!

Namaste,
