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!

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


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

Summer is a great time to catch up on your reading, so I’m giving away one of my books for four weeks, while I finish my fifth. Until this Friday, 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!

Review and Interview on Dying is Weird: A Journey of Enlightenment


dying is weirdIn sharing her memoir, Dying is Weird: A Journey of Enlightenment, Kathleen Westberg brings us into her life as she loses loved ones and then begins searching for meaning in life and death. Her story resonated with me as my own mother is now under hospice care and shows dementia symptoms very close to what Westberg’s mother experienced. And my mother also feels my grandmother’s presence in her room now – weird, as Westberg says.

How can we feel more of a connection to our loved ones during and after their lives? Well, Westberg shares some answers she found through the work of Edgar Cayce, which stirred her soul and led her to continue her studies of metaphysics and spirituality. His ability to communicate with his friends and relatives that had died, she explained, helped her to broaden her views on keeping in touch with loved ones after they have passed on.

While she always showed some heightened psychic abilities, once Westberg begins studying and attending holistic healing conferences, there is no stopping her in sharing her Healing Touch, interpretation of dreams and precognition of events.

This book is a sweet, quick read that makes us feel we are not alone, but all connected. After finishing it, you feel like you are part of Westberg’s family, and you are. Her experiences help one believe that life isn’t as “random and chaotic as previously thought,” and makes death seem “more like an adventure to look forward to than something to fear.”

Kathleen Westberg is a life member of the Cayce group, A.R.E., The Association of Research and Enlightenment. Here, she answers my questions about her book…

Becca: Why is dying “weird?”

Kathleen: My experiences with the death of loved ones has been at times so perplexing, befuddling and fascinating, that I knew I wanted to write a book about what I experienced. The title of my book, Dying Is Weird, comes from a personal experience in which I witnessed the transition of a family member and her words to me.  The word “weird” according to Webster’s Dictionary has several definitions: supernatural, odd, strange, uncanny and magical just to name a few.  So with the definitions and my personal story it all fit into what I thought was the perfect book title. Death to me was weird also, because of the experience I had when I was eleven.  It touched me in a deep way and awakened me to some of my own perceptions that would stay with me throughout my entire life.  In that sense, dying is weird because it is something that has been a part of me from a young age, and it transcends time and space.

Becca: Why do you think people in our culture are unprepared for death?

Kathleen: Years ago, death was looked at much differently.  I’m not saying that the grief was any less, but before the age of medicine, the mortality rate was very high and everyone suffered the loss of loved ones, sometimes at relatively young ages.  Children were apt to die from illnesses that are now preventable.  Multiple families lived together and relatives lived in close proximity always lending support and comfort.  I feel they had a different understanding about life and death.  Births as well as deaths were witnessed in the home which made both a more natural experience. Society has changed dramatically.  The natural cycle of birth and death is no longer witnessed at home.  Families don’t have the commitment to care for the elderly so the aging population becomes more compartmentalized and the elderly die sometimes distances from their loved ones.  We have also become more materialistic, with more of a focus on money and material possessions.  Also, people have a harder time accepting something if they can’t measure it or quantify it.  I feel by learning to cultivate or develop our clairvoyant perceptions we can become more aware of that dimension of existence, called death, and our experiences might not seem so out-of-the-ordinary.  Working at being more loving and learning to forgive and reconcile relationships and maintaining that loving awareness, I think would help us all be better prepared for death.

Becca: What was the biggest lesson you learned in your metaphysical studies?

Kathleen: Maybe the most important thing I’ve learned is that my intuition and spiritual understanding has grown in direct relationship to my studies.  I have learned so much from making the effort to take different classes and study with a variety of teachers. There have been so many teachers in my life that have shared their talents and spiritual abilities and it seems I always take something very worthwhile from each one.  I am fascinated by energy work and the energy of the world, be it in a house of worship, someone’s home, out in nature and of course the energy of others.  The more I put effort into those areas, the more aware I become of these spiritual dimensions and the more I am able to help others heal and grow. When we make a conscious effort to develop our metaphysical awareness, the creator can work through us and it then becomes a natural attunement to use at will.

Becca: What do you hope readers take away from your book?

Kathleen: I want people to understand that death is not the end of life – that we are transformed by death, and somehow our consciousness or awareness carries on in a spiritual dimension or existence.  By opening our minds to receiving messages through our dreams, and through our inner senses, we can change and minimize our fear of death. For me, one of the most important life lessons that has helped me deal with death is a sense of humor.  Smiles and laughter help me to temper the grief that I experience.  When we love more and laugh more, that connection never ceases to exist. I can feel it coming back to me through the ethers.

Becca: Would you say you have the answers to “What happens after death?”

Kathleen: It’s my vivid imagination that has helped me to picture what happens after death.  Sometimes I can feel the warmth and the laughter coming from my loved ones.  Even when writing my book, I could sense the love and encouragement that was being sent my way.  I also get a sense when someone has moved beyond the first plane of existence after death; it’s a little harder and takes a little longer to get their attention.  In one moving dream, long after my mother had died, she finally answered my pleadings to contact or connect with me.  In my dream she walked into a room where I was and looked like she had just awoken from a long nap.  The message I got was I had disturbed, or awakened her on her sojourn to the next level, but if I really needed her she would take that time to let me know she was always available for me. I just started reading Deepak Chopra’s Life After Death: The Burden of Proof, and I’m excited about what I can continue to learn about the process and experience of death.  His book is more of a synthesis of medical, scientific and spiritual perspectives, whereas my book is written from my personal experience with spirituality.

Becca: What advice to you have for other first-time authors who feel they have inspiration to share?

Kathleen: My advice for first-time authors would be to believe in themselves.  Since I have always been a better listener than a talker, I hear the stories from others and I see how by sharing their stories, as I did, the author can uplift, educate, and just simply entertain readers.  Writing helps bring your inspiration into focus; it puts your inspiration into a form where you can look at it, reflect on it and work on it.  We get so busy with our lives and our obligations that we can get distracted from a deeper sense of purpose in our lives and work, and so it’s very important to make sure to set aside time to write.  It may not always come out in perfect form, but you can always go back and edit or rewrite your material.  It’s important to just keep writing.

The Chakra Diaries – Free for You on My Birthday


The Chakra Diaries Book CoverI’m taking a long weekend break from writing my next book, The Chakra Diet, to celebrate my birthday. I hope you’ll accept a gift from me – my first book, The Chakra Diaries, will be free on Kindle to download March 7-9.

Here’s what one of my reviewers in the U.K. wrote:

“The first thing that grabbed me was the cover: all those swirls turning in one direction in harmony, it’s not something I’ve seen before. Only later did I realize there’s a hidden meaning in this cover, showing that, interwoven in the story are the lives of different characters as they attend a 12 week chakra workshop and experience a major shift in their lives. During this workshop, as characters come and leave, the reader’s taught how the energy of healing and different people can leave a mark on one. To be honest, when I started this book I expected a formal handbook with explanations what chakras are, how they work, and how blockages can be removed. However, I was wrong. The Chakra Diaries offers a unique way to teach the reader how energy impacts one’s life by giving peeks into the diary entries of the main characters and their lives, their experiences, disappointments and happy moments.

“This is definitely different than any other book I’ve read. It isn’t just a story; the book offers a glimpse of the different stages people go through to attain the ultimate. There is Drama. Loss. Guilt. Redemption. Love. Strength. And in the end there’s happiness and forgiveness. All in all, this is a well written, entertaining, and thought provoking read I enjoyed.”

I hope you enjoy the inspiring quotes, stories, and interwoven chakra information and balancing meditations when you download your copy of The Chakra Diaries. If so, please leave your own review on Amazon.

QUOTES THAT INSPIRE ME TO KEEP READING AND THINKING…


I’ve been traveling the last month and proofing the final manuscript of Chakra Secrets (now available on Kindle), the sequel to my first book, The Chakra Diaries. Thank goodness, I put in some inspirational quotes at the beginning of each chapter, so I didn’t mind reading and proofing over and over again until I was sure I caught every typo.

I also started a few other fabulous books that I’ll be reviewing in the weeks ahead… including How to Lose your Mind in No Time, Gemstone Power! and The Inner Path, if you want to check them out on Amazon for some inspirational weekend reading.

 
So what quotes were intriguing enough for me to include them in my new book? And to keep me interested in skimming through it again and again? See which ones speak to you and let me know which get you thinking:

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

“Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a giant tree, in the midst of them all” ~ The Buddha

“Let’s not forget that the little emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without realizing it.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh

“Life is the sum of all your choices.” ~ Albert Camus

“Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

“A photographer gets people to pose for him. A yoga instructor gets people to pose for themselves.” ~ Terry Guillemets

“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.” ~ Louisa May Alcott

“Forget not that I shall come back to you…” ~ Kahlil Gibran

“My life often seemed to me like a story that has no beginning and no end. I could well imagine that I might have lived in former centuries…that I had been born again because I had not fulfilled the task given to me.” ~ Carl Jung

“Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“If everyone you meet is a mirror reflecting you back to yourself, make sure to find a way to love what you see.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

“If you want OTHERS to be happy, practice compassion. If YOU want to be happy, practice compassion.” The Dalai Lama

“Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.” ~ Jean Anouilh

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love…and then we return home.” ~ Aboriginal Proverb

“It isn’t what you did in the past that will affect the present. It’s what you do in the present that will redeem the past and thereby change the future.” ~ Paulo Coelho

“Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it” ~ Rabindranath Tagore

“The past is over and done with…fill your mind with awareness of the beauty and goodness in the present.” ~ Serge Kahili King, Ph.D.

While Chakra Secrets is obviously about how chakra balancing changed my life and can change yours, it also contains grains of wisdom I have picked up from many different sources, just like these quotes represent many different life teachings and philosophies. But, in the end, it’s all about choosing happiness. That may sound easy, and it is, once you know the key – which, of course, I offer you at the end of the book.

You can get your Kindle version of Chakra Secrets today!

On September 12, we’ll celebrate the launch of the book with ten lucky winners receiving: Signed, first-edition copies of Chakra Secrets plus Crystal Chakra jewelry, pendulums and more surprises! Enter to win at www.thechakras.org, now through midnight Sept. 11th.

Namaste!
Becca Chopra, author of The Chakra Diaries and Chakra Secrets
