I am no expert on the subject but I have been studying and starting to implement them into my meditation routine. It is a bit more advanced for a beginner but I would not let that discourage you.

I do recommend that you start with the basics and stay there until you feel very comfortable sitting for a period each day so that it has become a part of your daily routine.

A very good way to begin to tap into your chakras is by using certain affirmations while you are meditating. These affirmations are designed to correspond with each of the 7 chakras.

Remember that everything in the universe is energy in the form of vibrating wave lengths. So everything has a frequency and therefore a corresponding musical sound and a color. That is why the 7 chakras are always represented by 7 colors.

Move on to the next page to learn about the 7 affirmations to heal and balance your chakras.

I got this article over at Mind Body Green which is one of my favorite websites. The beginning of the article talks about the practice of Tong Ren, which may seem a little strange to you, but don’t be put off.

Keep reading and you will learn how to use the affirmations without practicing Tong Ren. This is a great way to begin balancing your chakras even if you are a beginner.

The picture I included will also give you a little info about the chakras. Balancing and aligning your chakras can balance and align all aspects of your life. It is very powerful.

Over 15 years ago, my teacher Tom Tam, an acupuncturist and energy healer, picked up an acupuncture doll and began tapping on specific acupuncture points with a magnetic hammer.

Lo and behold, as he tapped the doll, the person who he was working on at the time actually felt a miraculous, energetic shift in their body. This tapping technique began spreading all over the country and widely became known as Tong Ren.

As a healer myself, I was of course intrigued and decided I needed to learn this mysterious, yet remarkably simple energy healing technique.

When I first learned how to do Tong Ren, my initial thoughts were: this is too crazy and out there, even for me! And truth be told, I am known for being pretty “out there.”

Quite frankly, tapping on a doll to heal a human seemed far too weird — kind of like Voodoo.

Slowly however, the technique began to grow on me and I started practicing Tong Ren. And to my utmost surprise, people actually felt it! They felt the energy I was channeling, and they experienced shifts in their body and mind as well.

I was so inspired, that I developed an entire healing system based on Tong Ren and called it: Tong Ren Chakra Balancing.

This energy healing technique involves tapping onto the seven chakras of a Tong Ren doll with a magnetic hammer, for the purpose of balancing the chakra system.

When the chakras comes into greater alignment, all aspects of life can come into greater alignment as well.

The 7 Chakras are the energy centers in our body in which energy flows through.

Blocked energy in our 7 Chakras can often lead to illness so it’s important to understand what each Chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely. Here’s our quick summary:

1. Root Chakra – Represents our foundation and feeling of being grounded.

  • Location: Base of spine in tailbone area.
  • Emotional issues: Survival issues such as financial independence, money, and food.
  • More on Root Chakra healing

2. Sacral Chakra – Our connection and ability to accept others and new experiences.

  • Location: Lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the navel and 2 inches in.
  • Emotional issues: Sense of abundance, well-being, pleasure, sexuality.
  • More on Sacral Chakra healing

3. Solar Plexus Chakra – Our ability to be confident and in-control of our lives.

  • Location: Upper abdomen in the stomach area.
  • Emotional issues: Self-worth, self-confidence, self-esteem.
  • More on Solar Plexus Chakra healing

4. Heart Chakra – Our ability to love.

  • Location: Center of chest just above heart.
  • Emotional issues: Love, joy, inner peace.
  • More on Heart Chakra healing

5. Throat Chakra – Our ability to communicate.

  • Location: Throat.
  • Emotional issues: Communication, self-expression of feelings, the truth.
  • More on Throat Chakra healing

6. Third Eye Chakra – Our ability to focus on and see the big picture.

  • Location: Forehead between the eyes. (Also called the Brow Chakra)
  • Emotional issues: Intuition, imagination, wisdom, ability to think and make decisions.
  • More on Third Eye Chakra healing

7. Crown Chakra – The highest Chakra represents our ability to be fully connected spiritually.

  • Location: The very top of the head.
  • Emotional issues: Inner and outer beauty, our connection to spirituality, pure bliss.
  • More on Crown Chakra healing

You can use this technique to balance your own chakras, or even the chakras of another person. The Tong Ren doll is simply an energetic representation of whomever it is you are treating.

When you tap onto the chakras of the Tong Ren doll with the Tong Ren hammer, you say an affirmation for each chakra. As you tap on each of the seven chakras, you would say an affirmation for each chakra.

Here are seven affirmations you can use on each of the chakras as you tap on your Tong Ren doll with a hammer. If you don’t have access to a doll, you can just use these affirmations on yourself by visualizing the corresponding color of each chakra.

1. Root Chakra (Muladhara): “I am disciplined. I attend to my mind, body and spirit everyday.”

2. Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana) “I am filled with creativity.”

3. Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura): “I accept myself completely.”

4. Heart Chakra (Anahata): “I am a radiant being of light and love.”

5. Throat Chakra (Vishuddha): “I am fully expressive. I express myself fully and appropriately.”

6. Third Eye Chakra (Ajna): “I am wise.”

7. Crown Chakra (Sahasrara): “I let go and I trust the process of life.”

Although this may seem like a simple technique, it has amazing power to balance and align your chakra system and improve the overall quality of your life.

3 Signs You Reincarnated Into This Life

reincarnateBy: Steven Bancarz / Source: Spirit Science and Metaphysics

Reincarnation is spoken of a lot as something that is a possible outcome for us when our physical bodies die. But rarely do we look at our current lives and wonder in we are a reincarnate.

I recently wrote an article titled “4 signs that this isn’t your first life on earth“, and it seemed to resonate with a lot of people. I was amazed at how many people ended up messaging me saying it made so much sense to them.

It’s not a coincidence that you happen to feel as though you have lived here before while simultaneously holding an interest for spirituality. At some point, we have to look within ourselves and wonder if we are currently living as a reincarnate.

Most people don’t read articles like this. They don’t believe in the existence of a soul, let alone reincarnation. Chances are, you are not just another number in the human population.

You have special qualities that make you feel different from other people.

I believe this is because you are part of a special group of people that reincarnated here on purpose. Maybe you came here to help others evolve, to alleviate karma, or to develop as a soul. Whatever the reason may be, here are 3 signs that you have reincarnated into this life:

1) Your life is full of lessons

rom an early age, your life has been full of lessons. Either you have been through a lot of things emotionally, or you are very reflective by nature and extract lessons from any instance you can.

From a young age, you have constantly had experiences which cause to to reflect and evolve. Other people seem to cruise through life on autopilot, but you have experienced a thing or two. And because of this, you have lots of wisdom you can offer to other people.

In fact, you may even begin to look at hardships as opportunities to evolve and will start welcoming them into your reality. This is because you reincarnated here on purpose to evolve as a soul.

You have a tendency to come across challenges in life that force you to grow and evolve, and this is all part of the plan.

Your life is more full of reflection and spiritual growth than the average person, because you came here with the mindset of treating this life as a schoolhouse for your soul.

You didn’t just come here to build a cozy nest for yourself and then die. You came here with a mission to evolve.

2) You aren’t easily fooled

You aren’t socially naive. You have been through here before, so you have a natural ability to decipher the psychological states of other individuals.

You aren’t as susceptible to brainwashing as other people, which is why you have a hard time taking the “news” seriously. You know flakiness when you see it, and subliminal messages stick out like a soar thumb for you.

You can see through people and into their real intentions, which is why people have a hard time pulling a quick one on you. Not everybody has the gift of having an awesome bullsh*t detector, and this is not just because you have a different genetic code than other people.

From a young age, you have been able to get a really good read on people. This is because you’ve been through here a few times and are familiar with different psychological games people like to play. You recognize signs when you see them.

3) You have a longing to go back home

You may not know where “home” is right now, but you know it’s not here. You KNOW, somewhere deep in your soul, that planet earth is not your final destination.

Because you know earth is not really your home, you feel a deep unease at times and start to miss where you existed prior to coming here.

We may call it Heaven or the Spirit World, but regardless of what we call it, you know within your soul that your real home is located in a realm beyond the physical.

Not everybody has this homesickness. Some people may think “what are you talking about, of course this place is home.” But for you, you have came to earth and went back to the Spirit World enough times to know where you truly belong.

You may not be able to put your finger on why it is you feel that way, and your mind may not understand it, but your soul is longing for the comfort of home.

This homesickness may also be caused by the fact that you may have family members up there who you were with prior to coming here, who are waiting for you to return after you complete your mission in this life.

If you are reading this right now, take a moment reflect on your life and the way in which you interact with it. Do you believe this to be your first time coming through here?

Has anyone ever called you an old soul before? Treat this life as your mission. You came here on purpose. You’re special. Don’t forget to look for the signs the universe is sending you each day.

Awakening the Third Eye – Be Careful What You Wish For

eyesBy: Gregg Prescott, M.S. / Source: in5d

Have you ever heard the expression, ‘Be careful what you wish for’? For some people, the opening of the 3rd eye can show them things that they really didn’t want to see.

For others, it’s a journey of enlightenment. If you are sure that this is something you want to do, then please read on.

According to wiki, the third eye (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight.

In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra. The third eye is referred to the gate that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness.

In New Age spirituality, the third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance.

The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.

On the Above Top Secret website, a person by the name of “pellian” stated the following:

i found a very real technique that will increase your spiritual perception by a thousand fold. I won’t tell anybody what it is or where I learned it because Some may attract very evil entities and possibly destroy themselves over it.

The very first night I tried this i had a very different type of dream which i had not had before. the content doesn’t mean anything but i digress. The day After i notice that sometimes my awareness would shift and my vision seems different for a moment.

i thought that this is really cool. i do the exercises again soon after. same thing at night. I see colors and shapes that follow my vision. These were there if I closed my eye in complete darkness or opened them in the very dim light of my room.

These seemed to be objects of some sort that gave off a dim glow and had a woven pattern.

As I practiced it sounds really crazy But I think that these exercises created some sort of energy that attract astral forms. One night I woke up and saw this thick rope strung from my window sill to the door. at the moment i knew what it was.

I made the mistake of touching this animal or thing and felt a jolt like electricity. I was definitely awake I immediately felt very sick and had chills all over my body.

I continued the exercises two weeks later i was really close to sleep and a blue ring of light that fluttered like a butterfly came into my room.

I turned on the light and the ring persisted of about a second after and I again felt a sting i my side and the same chills. I assure that I am not dreaming and fully awake.

If this is not some crazy hallucination then whatever I have been doing is either lighting me up like a porch light to attract moths or these entities are coming through to this world via my consciousness.

A hallucination cannot affect you physiologically to make a shock effect. I also have noticed that when did the exercises something seems to materialize in my room.

The way this thing or object would materialize is that it would appear like it was a different refractive index like the air. I would also see entities that looked like this right after I wake up. I have even noticed small feathers falling down in my room.

The level of perception was incredible. But was not worth being bothered by these entities.

I view it as the difference between having a solid spiritual mind or having a fear based mind. It’s kind of like the 3rd eye mirror meditation where you end up seeing various faces from the collection or some of your past lives.

Not everyone will be ready for an experience such as that.

There is a video after this ebook that will walk you through your 3rd eye awakening but I would recommend reading the book, first!

You can find it on Amazon …or online at this link:

7 Ayurvedic Tips for a Dazzling New Year

ayurBy: Chara Caruthers / Source: Do You Yoga

The New Year is bursting with the energy of opportunity. Why? Because fresh starts are sexy, second chances make us feel alive, and who doesn’t want to refocus their attentions on creating a happier body, a healthier diet, and more abundance?

Thing is, while we’re in love with the idea of making resolutions, the execution…Well, that can get a little sticky. Because the truth is resolutions don’t go deep enough.

See, resolutions are life’s surface dwellers. They take detours around our motivations for living, loving, or being, and go straight to action. And action works fine…Until things start to get a little shaky.

When that happens, without a clear connection to what really matters, or some inspired driving force to keep us engaged and moving forward, our resolve waivers and the wheels fall off.

Sound familiar? The good news is you have choices. So why not make this year different?

Wisdom from the Past for Your Brightest Future

This year, rather than swimming around on the surface of the health and happiness pool, dive a little deeper to see what’s underneath it all.

Connect with what you’re really about, using the energy of opportunity to make some unconventional but insightful choices that will support you far longer than your will power ever could.

Ayurveda is about living your bliss. Its ancient principles endure because they get to the heart of what matters and makes a difference in our lives and our health.

They aren’t the sexiest ideas to come down the pike, but they acknowledge that, at our very core, we’re driven by the need for connection, nourishment, inspiration, and love.

So take some advice from the ancients, ditch the resolutions, and try these…

1. Know yourself.

We’re SO much more motivated by the idea of changing ourselves than we are by the idea of getting to know ourselves a little better. But knowing yourself is the secret to having everything you want in life.

Getting a realistic handle on your strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies isn’t as scary as it sounds, and opens your eyes to a world of possibilities.

So start here. Choose curiosity over judgment, observe yourself through “love-colored” glasses, and embrace what you see!

2. Manage your agni.

Agni is the fire that burns within. It is the driver of transformation, the spark of insight, and the catalyst for creation.

According to Ayurveda, there are thirteen different kinds of agni in the body-mind governing the digestion and metabolism of everything, from thoughts and ideas, to the pizza and beer you ate last Saturday night.

Your agni is no joke. Managing it is about tuning into your experience of clarity in the mind, body, and spirit. The clearer and more connected you feel, the better your agni is functioning.

3. Create a routine around something that matters.

Three things that make routines awesome:

  1. They remind us of what’s important when life gets a little chaotic.
  2. They give us a center to come back to.
  3. They’re stress killers (there’s a certain amount of stress in the unknown—routines are about creating the known).

Self-care is a great place to start, but your routines could be anything!

They don’t need to be complicated or all-encompassing. Don’t try to overhaul your whole life in a day, or even 21 days.

Start with a single simple thing, know why it’s important and why you’re doing it (that’s key), and then do it every day or week. And when you do so, celebrate!

4. Embrace rituals.

Sadhana (Sanskrit for spiritual practices) are an ancient approach to celebrating the everyday.

They recognize the sacred in everything, invite us to witness the miracle of living with our eyes fully open, and make something as simple as cooking and eating a meal feel as significant as building a cathedral (with a lot less mess).

Sadhana are all about you. They are simple practices that connect you to your soul. Create them by asking, “How do I want to feel? “ and “How can I honor the spirit of my desired feelings in my thoughts and actions?”

5. Find your tribe.

There’s nothing better than sharing who we are with the world, openly, authentically, and in all our crazy, messy, beautiful glory. So why don’t we do it? One word…Fear.

Authentic self-expression thrives in an environment that nurtures it and getting there is often about finding a tribe or community of folks whose acceptance, love, and support breaks down our fears and pulls for our success. And doing so is easier than you think.

If you can listen, practice empathy, open your heart, and push past your fears, you’ll get a taste of the sweetness of authentic connection, and you’ll be contributing something powerful to the world in the process.

6. Practice yoga. Every. Damned. Day.

Practicing yoga every day is more about intention rather than flexibility or endurance.

Choosing a moment of silence, a few conscious breaths, a grounding stance (press down through the heels and big toes, slight bend in the knees), to act in the spirit of service, or observe your own thoughts and reactions, this (and so much more), IS yoga!

On or off the mat, your yoga opens your mind, body, and soul to experience life in the purest and most enjoyable ways possible. So find big and small ways to practice, every moment of every day!

7. Love yourself.

Every one of these suggestions is ultimately an act of self-love. Yet, none of them really matters until we embrace that the desire for love and worthiness is really what runs our show.

Our never-ending search for love outside ourselves obscures the fact that we’ve already got a non-stop, self-generating supply of love within. So if you do nothing else this year, tap into your own supply of self-love.

Find the little bit of it that exists at the heart of everything you do…And add a lot more!
