I was recently interviewed about my novel, The Chakra Diaries, and how the characters became “emotionally centered.” Balancing the chakras can definitely lead to greater emotional strength and help you live a happier life, as it did for my characters.
In addition to meditation, such as daily Chakra Meditation, there are three steps you can take to master your own emotions, the way to run toward a happier life.
1) First, see things as they are in your life now, and accept them. Journaling or keeping a diary, as did my characters, is a great way to see the truth in front of your eyes. Don’t see your situation as worse than it is, just the simple truth.
2) Believe that you have the power to change things. In fact, see your situation as better than it is. Have a vision for what you want in your life, a compelling future to strive for, a reason to get up in the morning. Keep your eye on the prize. Write your goals down in your journal, visualize having what you want during your meditations.
3) Move toward your goal in baby steps, achievable steps, one small move at a time to make your life the way you want it to be. That way, you won’t scare yourself with fear of failure. You’ll increase your self-confidence with every small success you experience as you make your life the way you see it – happy. Be sure to write down every successful move you make in your diary and share the good news with others.

Like Deborah in your book, The Chakra Diaries, I feel dried up, my partner looks at every woman but me, what can I do?
In a Funk
You can go from funky to femme fatale with just a little balancing of your chakras. The second or sacral chakra governs our sexuality and passion. Let’s start with your passion for life in general – everyone is attracted to someone who flirts with life and glows with love for themselves as well as others. Do you judge the way you look unkindly? Look in the mirror and tell yourself how beautiful you are, just the way you are. And move through life letting that beauty emanate from you. The second chakra is about movement and flow. Go for a swim or dance around the house. Stand with your feet planted firmly on the ground as you listen to music you love and let Mother Earth’s energy fill you. Breathe it up from the center of the Earth. Embrace the feminine, celebrate it.
When your second chakra is balanced, breathe in the energy of the bright yellow sun to fill your personal power center, the third or solar plexus chakra. Radiate self-confidence out into the world. Don’t be jealous of others’ charms, compliment them. Once you feel filled with love and joy, believe me, your partner will want to tap into that. The more love you give out, the more you will receive.
