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.

    10 Powerful Ways to Stop Worrying and Start Living Today

    10 Powerful Ways to Stop Worrying and Start Living Today

    Plato knew that the body and mind are intimately linked. And in the late 1800s, the Mayo brothers, famous physicians, estimated that over half of all hospital beds are filled with people suffering from frustration, anxiety, worry and despair. Causes of worry are everywhere, in our relationships and our jobs, so it’s key we find ways to take charge of the stress.

    In his classic book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, Dale Carnegie offers tools to ditch excessive worrying that help you make a worry-free environment for your private and professional life.

    These are the top 10 tips to grab worry by the horns and wrestle it to the ground:

    1. Make Your Decision and Never Look Back

    Have you ever made a decision in life only to second-guess it afterwards? Of course you have! It’s hard not to wonder whether you’ve done the right thing and whether there might still be time to take another path.

    But keep this in mind: you’ve already made your decision, so act decisively on it and dismiss all your anxiety about it.

    Don’t stop to hesitate, to reconsider, or to retrace your steps. Once you’ve chosen a course of action, stick to it and never waver.

    2. Live for Today, Package Things up in “Day-Tight Compartments”

    You know that feeling: tossing, turning and worrying over something that happened or something that might, well into the wee hours. To avoid this pointless worrying, you need “day-tight compartments”. Much as a ship has different watertight compartments, your own “day-tight” ones are a way to limit your attention to the present day.

    The rule is simple: whatever happened in the past or might happen in the future must not intrude upon today. Everything else has to wait its turn for tomorrow’s box or stay stuck in the past.

    3. Embrace the Worst-Case Scenario and Strategize to Offset It

    If you’re worried about something, ask yourself: “What’s the worst thing that could happen?” Could you lose your job? Be jailed? Get killed?

    Whatever the “worst” might be, it’s probably not so world-ending. You could probably even bounce back from it!

    If, for example, you lose your job, you could always find another. Once you accept the worst-case scenario and get thinking about contingency plans, you’ll feel calmer.

    4. Put a Lid on Your Worrying

    Sometimes we stress endlessly about negative experiences when just walking away from them would serve us far better.

    To make squashing that worry easier, try this strategy, straight from stock traders: it’s called the “stop-loss” order, where shares are bought at a certain price, and then their price development is observed. If things go badly and the share price hits a certain point, they are sold off immediately. This stops the loss from increasing further.

    In the same manner, you can put a stop-loss order on things that cause you stress and grief.

    5. Fake It ‘Til You Make It – Happiness, That Is

    We can’t directly influence how we feel, but we can nudge ourselves to change through how we think and act.

    If you’re feeling sad or low, slap a big grin on your face and whistle a chipper tune. You’ll find it impossible to be blue when acting cheerful. But you don’t necessarily need to act outwardly happy; you can simply think happier thoughts instead.

    Marcus Aurelius summed it up aptly:

    “Our life is what our thoughts make it.”

    6. Give for the Joy of Giving

    When we perform acts of kindness, we often do so with the expectation of gratitude. But harboring such expectations will probably leave you disappointed.

    One person well aware of this fact was the lawyer Samuel Leibowitz. Over the course of his career, Leibowitz saved 78 people from going to the electric chair. Guess how many thanked him? None.

    So stop expecting gratitude when you’re kind to someone. Instead, take joy from the act yourself.

    7. Dump Envy – Enjoy Being Uniquely You

    Your genes are completely unique. Even if someone had the same parents as you, the likelihood of someone identical to you being born is just one in 300,000 billion.

    Despite this amazing fact, many of us long to be someone else, thinking the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. But living your life this way is pointless. Embrace your uniqueness and get comfortable with who you really are: How to Be True to Yourself and Live the Life You Want

    8. Haters Will Hate — It Just Means You’re Doing It Right

    When you’re criticized, it often means you’re accomplishing something noteworthy. In fact, let’s take it a step further and consider this: the more you’re criticized, the more influential and important a person you likely are.

    So the next time somebody talks you down, don’t let it get to you. Take it as a compliment!

    9. Chill Out! Learn to Rest Before You Get Tired

    Scientists agree that emotions are the most common cause of fatigue. And it works the other way around, too: fatigue produces more worries and negative emotions.

    It should be clear, therefore, that you’ve got to relax regularly before you feel tired. Otherwise, worries and fatigue will accumulate on top of each other.

    It’s impossible to worry when you are relaxed, and regular rest helps you maintain your ability to work effectively.

    10. Get Organized and Enjoy Your Work

    There are few greater sources of misery in life than having to work, day in, day out, in a job you despise. It would make sense then that you shouldn’t pick a job you hate, or even just dislike doing.

    But say you already have a job. How can you make it more enjoyable and worry-free? One way is to stay organized: a desk full of unanswered mails and memos is sure to breed worries.
