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.

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?

Chakra Secrets to Self-Love and Energy Healing


I’d like to share my tale encompassing a rugged path through all seven chakras, a happy ending and an instant healing technique everyone can use. I invite you to download a FREE copy of CHAKRA SECRETS through Friday, Oct. 16.

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

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.

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!

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!

Balancing the Root Chakra while enjoying DIGGING IN #Book Review


Screen Shot 2018-04-09 at 10.45.13 AMDigging In is an entertaining, engrossing and inspiring read. The protagonist, Paige, has just lost her husband in a horrific car accident, losing a perfect relationship, comfort and safety.

Now, her job is at risk also, she has a troubled teen, and is totally losing it until she starts digging in her backyard. The neighbors don’t like the big mess in a groomed lawn community. But with her Root Chakra totally unbalanced (loss of security), gardening is just what she needs. 

Author Loretta Nyhan expresses the emotions of grief in a profound way:

“Death was final, but grief wasn’t; it was a dirty street fighter who rose again and again even when I thought I had successfully knocked it to the ground. King of the sucker punches.”

While dealing with the death of her husband, the death of Paige’s boss (and his crazy son who has taken over the ad agency where she works) puts our heroine on the verge of losing her job of 17 years as well.

But learning to grow food from a new-found friend at the Farmer’s Market leads to new discoveries and lots of food for thought. She learns to tend fruits and vegetables and also how to better care for herself and move forward for both herself and her son, Trey:

“I’m learning. I’ve realized that’s what I should be doing at this stage in my life.”

It’s a fun ride seeing how something totally not in Paige’s nature helps her grow and succeed in all areas of her life.

Digging In is available now on Amazon.com.

Namaste!

26 Ways to a Better Relationship: THE ABC’s OF LOVE #BookReview and #AuthorInterview


ABCs CoverReading The ABCs of Love may be the most loving thing you can do for yourself and your partner.

It supports you in transforming your relationship: if it’s already great, then it will help you make it even better, and if you’re stuck, or suffering, then it will be show you how to turn things around.

If you’re not as happy as you’d like to be in your relationship, you may think that you or your partner – or both – have fallen out of love. But this book shows you how, most likely, you’ve simply fallen into bad or just repetitive habits. And it provides advice on the new habits you can adopt to prevent relationship problems… savoring what’s good and fixing what’s not.

The first chapter in The ABC’s of Love is Attachment and the last is Zest, so you see where this is going and how many suggestions Diana Shulman offers to keep your motivation strong.

For example, what is your style of attachment? Are you, e.g., an Approacher or an Avoider? Knowing yourself and your partner’s styles of relating can help foster better relationships. Diana Shulman recommends celebrating our differences, developing compassion, patience and respect for each other… so you can live your life to its fullest.

Love

The chapters are short and full of inspiration, lessons, and entertaining and insightful examples from the author’s marriage in applying her own lessons and those culled from experts in couples counseling. 

Author Diana Shulman, J.D., Ph.D., is a psychoanalyst in Los Angeles with more than 25 years of clinical experience after practicing law for 10 years. Here, she answers my questions about The ABCs of Love:

INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR DIANA SHULMAN:

Who can most benefit from reading The ABCs of Love?

The ABCs of Love is a self-help book for anyone in a relationship regardless of milestones, age, or sexual orientation. Readers will find everything they need — quite literally, from A to Z — to avoid the landmines, repair wounds (both old and new), rekindle desire, and get happy again. So whether you’re young or old, dating, or about to celebrate your 50th anniversary, the vignettes, tools, and skill-building exercises in the book can help readers create the relationship of their dreams.

What is the most effective way for the reader to use this book to improve their relationship?

I recommend couples read the book from beginning to end and then zero in on the chapters and exercises they found most helpful, keeping in mind there’s no such thing as perfect. Fights are normal. All couples fight, some more unproductively than others, of course, but we all fight. In fact, what distinguishes successful from unsuccessful couples is repair — the willingness to look, learn, and promise to do better. The ABCs of Love is all about how to do this.

I really like the TRY THIS feature at the end of each chapter. Do couples need to answer the questions together?

Couples don’t need to do the Try This exercises together but if they can put their heads and hearts together to discover ways to get things going in a better direction, it’s a real plus. Having said that, if one partner reads the book and starts making improvements, it’s going to help the relationship. As you might expect from.the title, the topics are presented in alphabetical order starting with “Attachment” and ending with “Zest.” 

In Chapter F for Feelings, you cover how we deal with emotions. What would you say is the best way to handle them?

Emotions are sometimes compared to ocean waves and for good reason. They’re natural and powerful as they reach a peak and flatten out with a noticeable ebb and flow. Letting emotional waves pass through you from beginning to end isn’t about losing your temper or non-stop weepiness. Instead, it’s about slowing down, mindfully noticing bodily sensations, perceptions, and impulses as the energy rises and falls. If you take the time to let a feeling do its thing, options open up, angles you’ve never considered enter your mind, and new strengths begin to emerge.

When handled effectively, our emotions are a vital part of an internal guidance system. They help make us better decision-makers. While all this sounds commonsensical, as though it should be effortless, most of us are afraid of certain emotions. We don’t want to explore their energy; we want to avoid it. It’s what we learned and what we’ve always done, but given the downside of turning away, I say it’s time to try something else. Many of the exercises in the book are designed to help couples do just that and start growing again.

Can you explain The S.U.R.E. Thing to lessen negativity in a relationship?

The S.U.R.E. Thing is an acronym I came up with to help couples slow down and think before lobbing the next conversational grenade. It’s about reminding yourself that your partner has an understandable point of view — even though you don’t agree with it. Here are the four steps of The S.U.R.E. Thing:

S is for Slowing your breathing to calm your brain so you can think more clearly.

U is for Understanding your partner’s points or feelings by focusing on what makes sense (you may not like what your partner is saying, but it still makes sense).

R is for Reflecting back what you heard to show you’re tuned in, “It makes sense to me that…”

E is for showing Empathy. “This has been difficult. I’ve made it worse, and I’m sorry.”

Witnessing each other is calming as opposed to infuriating. If you hold back on speaking until your partner shows signs of feeling heard, you’re in for a treat. By waiting your turn, you create a real chance of having an audience when you continue the conversation.

What overall message would you like readers to take away from The ABCs of Love?

I hope readers will see their recurring conflicts as a doorway into closeness and connection. Whether dramatic or born of something more routine, these are the moments, brief or drawn-out, when we feel dismissed, attacked, ignored, or shamed. Revisiting moments of disconnection and conflict can be a gift, a passageway into healing, provided we do it wisely — meaning explore what happened with an eye toward the future and the past, an ear for both words and feelings, and an ever-growing awareness of blind spots, hot buttons, and mistaken assumptions. If we fail to do this, the gift goes unopened and will soon be forgotten, ensuring more of that pointless back and forth we know all too well.

How can readers connect with you?
