This Is How Chakras Can Greatly Improve Our Daily Lives

    Within our body are energy centers known as the chakras: seven in total. When our chakras run optimally, they contribute to the person we are in positive ways. Our chakras are connected to our feelings and how we think, determining a lot of the decisions and actions we take. With that in mind, they are a source for how our lives will run for the good or bad. When the chakras are closed, they become over or under-active and you may not be living to your potential. Well balanced, opened chakras have many benefits to your daily life such as confidence, fearlessness, peace of mind and the ability to make good decisions.

    Root Chakra

    The first chakra sits near the tailbone and is your grounding chakra. It’s what allows you to feel at home in your own body or any given situation. When the Root Chakra is open, you feel safe and secure in your life. You feel welcome in situations and trust those that are worth trusting. You are able to make decision easily at work and have the energy and confidence to make your mark on the world.

    Sacral Chakra

    The Sacral Chakra is the second chakra and is based near the pelvis. It is where your feelings and sexuality energy is and when opened, you can let your emotions flow. Your passion for everything is unleashed and your sexuality is at a healthy balance.

    Naval Chakra

    The third chakra, the Naval Chakra is what serves you with your assertion. You are sure of yourself and assertive in a good way, a benefit in your daily work life. You are in control with a healthy self esteem which assists you in public speaking or management.

    Heart Chakra

    The heart chakra is the fourth chakra and is of course close to your heart. This chakra enhances love, kindness and affection within you. When your heart chakra is open, you can expect harmony in your relationships. This harmony is due to your emotional love and availability which inspires everyone around you.

    Throat Chakra

    The throat chakra is the fifth chakra and sits near your throat. It is what allows you to outwardly express yourself and communicate. If your throat chakra is closed off, you may have trouble communicating. In close relationships and at work, this chakra is essential so you can speak about the things you want as well as  communicating your ideas.

    Third Eye Chakra

    The sixth chakra is your third eye which sits in between your physical set of eyes. It is your intuition and visualization and serves great purpose for those who are creative. Being intuitive can help make the right choices in life for reasons you don’t even realize, you’ll just know what is good for you and what is not. Therefore, this chakra is essential in decision making and trusting yourself when you follow your heart.

    Crown Chakra

    The seventh chakra sits upon the top of your head and connects you to the world and creates a wisdom within you. When it is open, you are aware of the world around you and how you fit in it. You don’t ask questions like what your roll in life is, you just naturally allow yourself to be a part of the big picture that is the universe. This is a healthy mind set, you are in tuned with your spirituality and feel a sense of contentment.

    We feed our body so we have energy to go through our daily lives and we should also feed our spirit. There are things you can do to open your chakras and have a healthier inner self. There are meditation and visualization practises you can perform to cleanse and open the chakras. Some yoga postures also help open the chakras. When they’re open, you may find your life opens up to new possibilities quickly. It’s time to explore the chakras and ways to open them!

    How to Invest in Yourself: 3 Valuable Ways to Change Your Life

    How to Invest in Yourself: 3 Valuable Ways to Change Your Life

    Investing in yourself may be the most profitable investment you ever make. It yields not only future returns, but often a current pay-off as well.

    The surest way to achieve a better quality life, to be successful, productive, and satisfied is to place a priority on investing in both personal and professional growth. The effort you put into consistently investing in yourself plays a large role in determining the quality of your life now and in the future.

    1. Develop Your Skills

    Improving your skills doesn’t always mean investing in higher education, though that’s surely an option, and perhaps a necessary one depending upon your career field. Investing in your knowledge and skills can take many forms.

    Advertising

    In addition, expanding your level of knowledge and skill isn’t limited to the business arena and doesn’t necessarily need to be formal. There are many “skill investment” avenues.

    • Advance your education –  extra classes, advanced degrees, relevant certifications, are all valuable investments. Take classes, either in person or online. (Lifehack also offers this Masterclass that helps you to break free from limitations.)
    • Utilize available training – enroll in workshops, attend conferences or participate in webinars.
    • Expand your knowledge – there’s a lot of information available on nearly any subject imaginable. Read books, articles, white papers, anything related to the talent or skill you want to work on.
    • Keep current – stay abreast of the latest trends or advancements. Subscribe to publications, read blogs of experts, and follow the latest news.

    2. Explore Your Creative Side

    There is a fountain of creativity within most of us that has never been tapped or certainly hasn’t been used to its highest potential. We may need to unearth, and hone our individual creativity.

    Creativity, in any form, helps us to grow personally and professionally, to view problems and solutions in different ways and to utilize other parts of our mind that may have been previously untapped. It’s important to keep in mind that creativity has many faces. It’s far broader than being a painter or sculptor; it’s also about trying new things.

    • Learn a new language –  take a class or use language training software.
    • Try gourmet cooking – enroll in a formal class, by a new cookbook, or ask someone you know who enjoys cooking in a different way.
    • Write something – a book, short stories, poetry, anything.
    • Explore the outside world – try gardening, bird watching, or landscape photography.
    • Enjoy music – play an instrument, learn a new one or join a music group of some kind.
    • Create something tangible – paint, sculpt, make pottery, make jewelry or design your own clothes.

    Choose some form of activity that you have never tried, haven’t practiced in years, or have never explored fully.

    3. Nurture Your Mind and Body

    Nurturing both your mind and body allows you to have more to give now and in the future — more energy, more knowledge, more compassion, more ideas, greater strength, physical and mental endurance.

    Expand your mind. Learning new things and keeping your mind active even in simple ways helps to grow and maintain your mental ability.

    • Read – anything and everything.
    • Explore culture – attend performances, listen to different style of music, travel, or join an organization or group comprised of people from different backgrounds.
    • Open your mind – engage in conversations with those who disagree with you. Look at an argument and try to make a case for the opposing point of view.
    • Keep your mind active – play word games, (yes, even Words with Friends counts,) board games that include strategy, or try using your brain to perform simple calculations rather than relying on a calculator.

    Care for your body. Your body is like a well-oiled machine. If you care for it in the way that you might maintain an expensive car, it will perform marvelously and last for a very long time. Remember the basics:

    • Give it high quality fuel – meaning to make healthy food choices as often as possible. What you eat does play a large role in your energy and ability to perform. You truly are what you eat.
    • Don’t push it too hard – meaning to rest and relax often, slow down and don’t overload your system. Also, don’t shift gears too quickly; it causes stress and damage to “your machine,” A.K.A. your body.
    • Get regular and necessary maintenance – meaning to go to the doctor when you’re sick – don’t put it off until you totally break down. Better yet, use preventative maintenance; get check-ups, take appropriate vitamins and pay attention to irregular or erratic behavior.
    • Polish the exterior – meaning to take care of the outside too. Many people dismiss this as frivolous and self-indulgent, but it’s not as long as you don’t go overboard. We’re not talking about facelifts and Botox, we’re talking about getting a fabulous haircut, and wearing clothes that make you feel confident and attractive.

    The Bottom Line

    Investing in yourself truly makes a difference in your life, your well-being, and your ability to thrive and perform to the best of your ability. The extent to which you invest in yourself, mind and body, not only shapes the way you interact with the outside world, it often reflects the opinion you have of yourself.

    Your future is in large part determined by your willingness and ability to invest in yourself now.
