Scrumptious Summer Salad for Balancing the Root Chakra


Screen Shot 2017-06-18 at 12.20.46 PMHealing The Root Chakra – the All-Important First Step to Balance

If your Root Chakra is out of balance, you may feel all alone in the world, or like you don’t have solid ground to stand on.

Connection is key in healing the Root Chakra… connection with family, friends, nature, and your higher self.

What kind of “connecting” do you need to heal? Those with Root Chakra imbalances often feel estranged from their family or society in general, unrooted, and ungrounded.

I often recommend gardening to ground oneself, and planting root vegetables is probably the ultimate healing activity for the Root Chakra.

How are your connections with others? If you love helping others, practice the act of receiving for a change, and this will help heal this chakra.

If you usually let others take care of you, share some wisdom, some kind words, be someone else’s sounding board, or make a meal for a friend to build a stronger connection.

It’s a sizzling hot summer day at my house today, so I’m making this light lunch for a few friends. Let me know if you think this should be included in my upcoming CHAKRA COOKBOOK.

This can be a green-free salad (except for the parsley) or you can add chopped raw spinach or other greens as well. If you want added protein, feel free to add walnuts or some crumbled goat cheese. The main ingredients are still organically-grown root veggies – beets and carrots, and red in color – beets, apples and umeboshi vinegar (found in the Asian section of health food stores), all healing to the Root Chakra:

Scrumptious Summer Salad of Beets, Carrots and Apples 

1 lb. beets, peeled and cut in matchsticks

2 large carrots, peeled and cut in matchsticks

1 red-skinned apple, cut in small bite-sized pieces

1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, cilantro or baby spinach leaves

3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 T. umeboshi plum vinegar

Black pepper to taste

Toss all salad ingredients together right before serving.

Note: A food processor that has either a julienne blade or large shredding blade makes prep of this salad a breeze.

I hope you enjoy this scrumptious salad and share it with your family or friends – as a main course or side dish. Pay attention to the beauty of the colors and flavors provided by nature, stay in the moment, and notice how grounded and connected you feel.

When balancing your chakras, it’s all-important to start with a focus on the Root Chakra – it will generate great results for you.

Which Chakras Need Balancing to Meet your New Year’s Resolutions?


screen-shot-2016-12-24-at-8-02-19-am

I agree with Dr. Abrams, but how do we become bodywise? Look to your chakras. They give you clues where stress is sabotaging your health resolutions (in the past and for the New Year), and where you need to nurture yourself.

To share the best stress-busting techniques I’ve learned over the last 20 years along with the best way to nurture each chakra, 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.

CHAKRA ENERGY FOODS

You increase your energy when you eat food as close to its natural state as possible (not processed with additives you can’t even pronounce). 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 1st or Root Chakra.

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

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

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

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

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

Want to feel at one with all there is? More peace, harmony and connection to spirit? Work on your 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, 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 drop any excess weight, and feel and look better too.

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

Namaste!

Lose the Stress, Lose the Weight – #FreeKindle Tells You How


The Chakra Energy Diet coverDid you know that stress is screwing with your physical health and body weight?

If you’re blaming yourself 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.

In my Summer Book Giveaway this week, I cover what’s stressing you out and affecting your chakra balance that you may not even realize – processed foods and GMOs – and show you how to stop this stress in its tracks…

Download THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET, free on Amazon through August 5th, to learn a special Hawaiian breathing technique called Piko-Piko, using shamanic techniques and chakra color visualizations to instantly stop stress.

Once you’re relaxed, choose the foods that will help you reach your perfect body weight, not sabotage your goals.

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.

The Chakras are the seven basic energy centers in the body. Each chakra is associated with a different color, so eating foods in the color of the chakra you would like to balance, is an easy way to start. For example, a red beet and strawberry drink to ground your Root Chakra, or salmon and orange vegetables or fruit to help balance your Sacral 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.

Deep breathing when you’re stressed, 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.

Memoirs of a Chakra Healer: Chakra Secrets – Free for Download


Chakra Secrets coverThere’s no better way to open your Throat Chakra then to tell your own story and to share the many ways others can also use to balance their chakras and balance their lives. I invite you to learn more about the chakras, yoga, and mind-body healing by downloading a copy of CHAKRA SECRETS, free on Kindle through Friday, July 15.

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.

And please take a minute to leave a review when you’re done.

Namaste!

BALANCE THE THIRD EYE CHAKRA WITH DYNAMIND


I recently got a review for my first book, The Chakra Diaries, in which the reader said she had a hard time visualizing the chakra meditations provided at the beginning of each section. I’ve met many people who are not visually oriented, who would like to be better able to visualize what they want, and improve their intuition, imagination and psychic abilities.

So, let’s do some Dynamind tapping for the Third Eye Chakra.

Through this chakra center, you can tune in to the higher self in order to receive guidance and realistically perceive and visualize the future. It vibrates with the energy of the color indigo.

Emotional or mental health issues include confusion, brain fog, aimlessness and an inability to see the big picture or separate fact from fiction. Physical health issues commonly associated with the Third Eye Chakra include headaches, sinus problems, vision problems, learning disabilities and nightmares.

When the Third Eye Chakra is balanced, you have the ability to think clearly and the ability to trust your own inner wisdom, along with an increase in your intuitive, telepathic  and psychic abilities, including clairvoyance or clear seeing.

USING DYNAMIND TO BALANCE THE THIRD EYE CHAKRA

Prayer1) FOCUS – Hold your hands out in a loose prayer-like position.

2) DECLARE – Say aloud the condition you’re feeling that you would like to change, e.g.,

“I can’t concentrate and that can change. I want that feeling to go away.”

“I have a sinus headache and that can change. I want that pain to go away.”

If you have no symptoms to release, you can use Dynamind to strengthen the Third Eye Chakra, with a declaration such as:

“I’m not as intuitive as I want to be. I want to live in the light, seeing and thinking clearly.”

Becca Chopra performing Dynamind.3) RELEASE – Tap 7 times on the center of your chest, then at the point between the thumb and forefinger of each hand, and on the top bone of your spine (the 7th cervical vertebra).

4) BREATHE – Direct your breath, inhaling with your attention on the crown of your head, exhaling with your attention below your feet.

Repeat until you feel the desired result.

For a complete set of Dynamind instructions for ALL the chakras, go to Amazon to download Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life.

Namaste!

Chakra Recipes for Health – Download Free Today


Thanks to guest blogger Mary Jo Shaffer, Co-Owner of Heart Projects and author of Rainbow Eyes: Chakramid Reflections, who explains why you’ll want to download THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET, especially while it’s FREE ON KINDLE, today and tomorrow, July 7 & 8.

The Chakra Energy Diet coverA 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.”

A Birthday Book Giveaway – 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, free for download on Kindle this weekend.

You can download it to any smart reading device by downloading the free Amazon app… see http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000493771.

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.”

I hope you enjoy the inspiring quotes, stories, and interwoven chakra information and balancing meditations when you download your copy of The Chakra Diaries.

Try this short SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA guided meditation from the book:

“Inhale deeply, hold your breath and then exhale. Feel a vortex of energy move up to your navel and turn bright yellow, right at your core. Breathe in and out of your core, building up the power of your center. Be open to the vitality, purpose and majesty of this bright yellow fire of life. Know that you can use this power to heal old pain and to remove old wounds. Breathe in and out of the flames of this inner sun and feel your body radiate with new purpose, wisdom and strength.”

Namaste!
