You can also keep them in the bag to ask the question, “Which chakra do I need to work on?” The stone you pick will give you the answer! Your energy body will always choose the right one.

 Do this anytime you’re feeling less than perfectly balanced, and want to choose a specific chakra to heal using meditation (download my free Chakra Meditation), Dynamind (see my book Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life or free video Balance & Tone Your Chakras), or through other means such as your diet (read The Chakra Energy Diet).

Balance your Chakras, Balance your  Sex 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.

DYNAMIND HEALING – THE CROWN CHAKRA


I learned the Dynamind Technique for healing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dis-ease from Hawaiian shaman, Serge Kahili King, Ph.D.  Dynamind is a combination of words, breath and movements that work together to release any tension causing imbalances in your chakras and your life.

THE CROWN CHAKRA

Located at the top of the head, the seventh chakra, the Crown Chakra, connects us to spirit, the Divine and cosmic consciousness.

It transcends the physical and enters the realm of pure thought or higher consciousness. It vibrates with the energy of the color violet or diamond white.

Physical health issues commonly associated with the Crown Chakra include hypersensitivity to light, sound and the environment, cerebral and central nervous system disorders, and chronic exhaustion. Emotional or mental health issues include a feeling of aloneness or detachment, worry, depression, a loss of meaning, and psychoses.

When the Crown Chakra is balanced, you feel on the path to your destiny, an enhanced sense of spirituality, access to the subconscious, and a sense of calm and peace.

USING DYNAMIND TO BALANCE THE CROWN CHAKRA:

1) 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 feel separate and alone and I know that can change. I want that feeling to go away.”

“My nerves are frayed and I know that can change. I want my hypersensitivity to noise to go away.”

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



“I’m not as peaceful and calm as I want to be. I want to be more aware of the beauty all around me.”

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.

Balance the Throat Chakra with Dynamind


Is it easy for you to get your ideas heard? Are you in tune with what you really want? Do you feel a connection to divine inspiration? I learned Dynamind, an energy healing tool, from Serge Kahili King, PhD. Here, you can try it to strengthen your Throat Chakra, and be able to shout YES to the three questions above.

THE THROAT CHAKRA

Located in the back of the throat area, the fifth chakra, the Throat Chakra, is the focal point of sound, communication and self-expression. This chakra center allows us to hear and understand information, express our inner truth and make ourselves heard. It vibrates with the energy of the color sky blue.

Emotional or mental health issues include criticism of the self or others, excessive talking or the inability to find the right words, shyness and frustration. Physical health issues commonly associated with the Throat Chakra include sore throats, upper respiratory illnesses, thyroid problems, stiff neck and stuttering.

When the Throat Chakra is balanced, you have confidence in your beliefs and the words to express them, the ability to hear and communicate well with others, and it allows the heart and the head to align.

USING DYNAMIND TO BALANCE THE THROAT CHAKRA

1) 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 feel nauseous knowing I have to give a speech and I know that can change. I want that feeling to go away.”

“I have an earache and I know that can change. I want that pain to go away.”

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

“I’m not as articulate as I want to be. I want to impact others with my knowledge, with a strong voice like the best of teachers.”

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.

Too Much Work To Do? Think Vacation!


“Treat every day like it’s the day before vacation, and you will get more work done!” ~ Zig Ziglar

Have a deadline facing you? Or just procrastinating on writing or reading a book, doing your taxes (I filed an extension, did you?) or setting up your new website?

Follow these tips to help you treat every day like you are leaving on vacation tomorrow:

  • Be organized. Make a list. Be organized in your work and in your life, as if you were leaving on a jet plane tomorrow! Make a checklist of everything you’ve got to get done today — then see exactly where you can fit in your most important tasks.
  • Delegate. When you go on vacation, you probably leave other people in charge of things, like taking care of your pet or getting your mail. What time-consuming, non-work activities are you doing that you can delegate to someone else, a family member or an intern or colleague that could help you with things like research, website updates and other business tasks?
  • Let the unimportant stuff slide. Don’t get sidetracked cleaning out the garage, shopping for a new swimsuit for your vacation – turn the 80/20 rule around (that 20% of your efforts will bring you 80% of your reward). Spend 80% of your time on the 20% of your activities that will bring you success.
  • Do the hard stuff first. Face the stuff you don’t enjoy first – paying bills, editing your book, writing a report, reading a tutorial, for instance. Then, you can get to the more fun, creative work you love, for instance, writing a book or designing a new product.
  • Unplug. It’s a good idea to unplug appliances when you leave for vacation and an even better idea to unplug from social media and your phone during scheduled work time.  Complete your daily work goals before checking emails, returning phone calls and blogging.
  • Get serious. Make a commitment to tackle your daily to-do list. If you were really coming to visit me in Hawaii the next day and wouldn’t be back for a week, you’d have to get it done, right?
  • Meditate. Seriously, taking a 10-minute break to meditate will reduce stress, sharpen your cognitive skills and still your chattering mind to let inspiration flow in. To download a FREE 10-minute Chakra Meditation that will do the trick, go to www.http://www.thechakras.org/meditations.html.

Check your to-do list to make sure it’s doable, prioritize, delegate, and keep in mind the goal of lying in the hammock out in the sun after your work’s done.

When you do, you’ll not only get more done in a shorter amount of time, but you’ll also experience less stress and find yourself with more free time to do the things you want.

BALANCE YOUR CHAKRAS WITH DYNAMIND HEALING


Do you want to learn special yoga poses and mind-body exercises that can be used to balance each of the seven chakras? In CHAKRA SECRETS, you can follow Rebecca, the workshop leader from The Chakra Diaries, as she tells her side of the story, including explosions of past lives, betrayals, loss, grief and guilt, on her path to becoming a yoga teacher and chakra healer.

FROM CHAKRA SECRETS:

I learned an exciting, simple-yet-profound energy healing tool from Serge Kahili King, PhD, founder of the Huna group, Aloha International. Dynamind was like a simplified version of the Energy Freedom Technique (EFT) and it did have similarities to it, Dr. King said. “But in Huna, we try to make things as simple as possible, as effective as possible, so we’ve combined the power of words, breath, movement and feeling into one mind-body healing technique.”

Dynamind can be used to heal a wide range of physical dis-ease, it was explained. You simply stated out loud what you wanted to change – the  problem, pain or discomfort – and tapped, breathed and felt it go away.

Dr. King advised asking yourself what emotion was a problem, where you felt that emotion in the body, and then work on changing that physical sensation to let the healing energy of the body once again flow freely. All emotion manifests within the body with some physical ‘feeling.’ Just as chakra imbalances can manifest in uncomfortable physical and emotional problems.

CHAKRAS AND THE SPIRITUAL REALM


“Keys to the Spirit World” simplifies the process of communicating with your spirit guides, who are always there to help you navigate your path through the physical world.

This book helps you use all the spiritual tools and gifts you were born with, but most likely forgot. As a child, you may have heard your spirit guide(s) through your “inner ear,” but blocked them out as you grew older and more conditioned by society’s rules of what is reality and what isn’t. This book is a breath of fresh air, saying “Yes, you can take guidance from your dreams, inner and outer voices, thoughts, and visualizations.” Plus, O’Neill offers guidance on how to relax and allow communication with your spirit guides to happen. She even includes exercises to help you tear down the walls to spirit communication.

I especially liked the section on chakras and their correlation to spirit communications. O’Neill explains how chakras, our energetic centers, allow information to be received from the spiritual realm and incorporated into the physical body. She takes you one by one through the chakras, with special emphasis on the Heart Chakra, which is elevated and expanded through higher consciousness, the Throat Chakra, used for channeling information during spirit communications, and the Third Eye Chakra, which opens you to clairvoyance and clear seeing.

The author shares some of her own experiences as a child growing up with psychic abilities and the sensations she felt in these chakra areas before she understood their relationship to the spiritual realm.

And she offers 10 Tips for Working with your Spirit Guides, invaluable for anyone who wants to have a stronger connection to spirit and accept guidance on their path.

Have you tried automatic writing, dream journaling or spirit guide meditation? O’Neill offers advice on how to use these tools to connect with your spirit guides. She ends her short yet very comprehensive giude with common blocks to spirit communication and how to solve them.

Communicating with Spirit Guides is immensely valuable – this book gives you the tools you need to take advantage of what is offered to each and every one of us from the spiritual realm.
Namaste!
