To take a personal journey towards the discovery of our unique purpose in the Universe and connect with ourselves on a deeply profound level. Notice your breath, notice your eyes, and notice the power of a pause during this serene meditation.
Let's smile. Let's feel the love pulsing through our body, radiating through our chakra system. Throughout this entire meditation, I invite you to smile. Just smile. This simple act can free tension, relieve stress, and completely change your mood. Smiles are contagious. They deliver positivity. You may even change someone else's day by smiling in their direction.
This beautiful, serene 10-minute meditation focuses solely on your breathing, allowing you to pause in the moment and be present. Where nothing is happening, where there is nothing but emptiness, where you can be still as you find your own rhythm and expansion. Please gift yourself these precious moments of self care in meditation to escape from the daily churn. Calm your body, calm your mind.
Far too often words have been minced and the truth has been lost. So, hey there you! I am talking to you! So listen!
Are you happy? What are you doing with your life? Are you being true to yourself? Yes, I am just coming straight out and asking you this point blank. What do you want? Who are you? What is your life for?
Are you waiting for the right moment, the opportune time, the stars to align? Is your life passing you by? Does every birthday go by leaving you a year behind on you having achieved what you know you could have achieved by now? What are you doing with your life? Are you living your life authentically? Are you speaking your truth? Are you?
Recently I lost someone I knew very well. He ended his life, what seemed like, quite suddenly. Like too many others before him, he was gone, and so was his potential. What seemed sudden to me wasn't so sudden for him. He had been suffering silently, bottling up his true pain, depression and sadness for decades.
His loss made me...

The Crown Chakra reaches the heights of spirituality. It connects us with our indelible and permanent divinity, and is the source of healing energy in the human energy system. The chakras act as a ladder to love, spirituality, and healing, from the base energy of the Root Chakra, which anchors us in life, to the more refined spiritual energy of the Crown Chakra. Like all other energy centers in the human energy system, the Crown Chakra exists as a vestigial core of potential until it is activated.
The Crown Chakra opens when we have attained psychological maturity and spiritual development. The opening of the Crown Chakra coincides with a time in our lives when we may have to face several difficult personal choices and external life challenges. These ultimately bring us spiritual insights and a greater sense of what we are capable of, and what our higher purpose might be. For many, such realizations are often seen as a form of "midlife" crisis – enlightenment often leads us to...
The essence of the Hara Chakra is knowing that what we have and do is good enough! This is the center of physical procreation and the chakra directly affecting sexual maturation. It controls our appetites for food, sex, and pleasure. If we are too indulgent we burn up vital life fuel required by other systems in our body. If we hold back too much energy from the physical part of our lives, we become hungry for what we deny ourselves. Finding the balance between control and letting go is essential for this chakra to function.
The Hara Chakra is concerned with our physical well-being. This means that we learn to honor the body by giving it what it needs to thrive – nutritious food, plenty of rest, and fun, work, and exercise.
This Chakra is also concerned with the quality of deservedness. When we feel that we truly deserve the good we long for, we treat ourselves well. We give ourselves permission to have the things we want.
Pleasure is another quality of the Hara Chakra....
The Root Chakra is concerned with keeping life vibrant and sustainable. It incorporates all the qualities to maintain existence in an orderly fashion, including being constant and stable. It is drawn to the simple activity of staying alive. It focuses upon shelter and sustenance, as well as the things that keep our lives moving along. it flourishes with levels of security that keeps chaos and evil far from our door, and ultimately it is concerned with having the patience and presence to see our dreams come true.
When we don't feel secure we lose energy, fearing for our existence and wondering whether we will go on. Cultivating a deep sense of inner security helps keep the Root Chakra functional during uncertainty.
The Root Chakra carries all the qualities of survival from our ancestors. Just as the roots of diseases are transmitted down family lines, so are the spiritual qualities. When we find ourselves in difficult circumstances, we can draw on the qualities our...
The qualities of the Heart Chakra are peace, love, unity, brotherhood and sisterhood, and joy. All these aspects of the heart speak of love of life and a penetrating awareness of the sacredness of all things. The heart thrives on joy and delight; it flourishes on openness, sharing, touch and connection. It contracts with pain, loss, and trauma. Feeding the heart with positive energy is choosing to see the love in people, and the joy in all things.
The Heart Chakra governs the physical heart and lungs. It is essential to our physical supply of energy and vitality as well as the love that nourishes our spiritual existence. Centering ourselves in love gives our life purpose and meaning. It anchors us in Selfhood, which is love itself. What this means, on a real level, is that our very nature is loving, kind, and respectful. Growth and healing open a panorama, where we give love freely and unconditionally and receive it in the same way.
The Heart Chakra is partially open in early...
