7 crystals to help you concentrate

We all feel the need for focus sometimes don’t we?  Concentrating with so many distractions in modern living can be a challenge.  Be ahead of the game and use these 7 crystals to aide your concentration.
You can use crystals with your chakras.  Not sure what chakras are?  They’re ‘energy centres’ in our bodies and they’re colour-coded according to each ‘energy centre’ or chakra.   You can read more on chakras soon on my blog and this poem is a brief guide to chakras.

Now let’s look at those 7 crystals that can help you concentrate…

A brief guide to chakras ~ poem

Brief Guide to Chakras Wellbeing Balance

A brief guide to chakras

I recently told you how you can balance your body and mind with crystals.  To illustrate how you can do this, there are many levels of alternative therapies that we can and must look at.  The challenge is to introduce each level as a layer, much like an auric layer!  (more on those at a later date!)

We each have 7 major ‘spinning wheels’ called chakras. They should each be open and spinning in alternate directions. They should also align with each other. If they’re not open and aligned, the energy cannot flow freely. When we have blockages in our energy flow, we become out of balance. This is when our body becomes out of alignment or not at ‘ease’. It is when our body is ‘dis-eased’ that we get ill. It is clear to see then, that if we keep our chakras balanced, we are less likely to experience ‘dis-ease’ or ‘illness’ and stress.

Brief Guide to Chakras Wellbeing Balance

Other than introducing you to my ebook ‘The Domino Effect‘ (for your free copy, opt-in at the bottom of this post), the best way I can think to introduce you to the wonderful world of chakras is in poem form.  Here’s one that I wrote a few years ago and it’s the perfect time to share it again:

How to balance your body and mind with crystals

We all feel the stresses of life don’t we?  Even those of us who follow a daily routine.  It’s called ‘life’.  As soon as you step outside your door, you leave yourself open to outside influences that cause imbalances in your body and mind.

But there are things you can do to keep that balance and keep ‘aligned’

How I find balance in life with my daily routine

Daily Routine Balance Habit Wellbeing Self Care Zen

How I find balance in life with my daily routine

With the general business and busyness of everyday life, it’s so easy to get swept up in the day isn’t it?  But I find that by starting my day off on the right ‘foot’, it gives me a head start in overcoming any stress and negativity that comes my way throughout the day.  By having a daily routine, I have time for me albeit in the early hours before any else is awake.  Yes, I often struggle to get out of bed in the morning due to tiredness but I usually stick to my daily routine which happens to be in the morning (and bits of it are often repeated at night) and I really feel the difference.

So what do I do in my daily routine to keep my ‘zen’ in balance?

Win a chakra bracelet ~ giveaway

Hello and welcome to another exciting giveaway!

Yes, you can win this pretty chakra bracelet.

jewellery giveaway chakra bracelet wellbeing spirituality chakras balanced aligned beads pin

  You will see that the bracelet is a string of coloured beads appropriate to each chakra.  You can see the corresponding chakra colours in last week’s #TheZenZing post when I looked at how you can ‘reset’ yourself by doing a chakra cleanse.  Now, to help you along the way, here is a chance to win a chakra bracelet (see the rafflecopter below).
~
But first ‘Where is the beginning?’ A poem on chakras…
~

What’s at the beginning?

It all starts at the root,

When we’re not grounded,

A branch can’t develop its shoots.

~

Our branches need feeding

With healthy, wholesome foods,

If not, they’re ‘unbalanced’

And affect our moods.

~

When we work from the bottom

And end up at the top,

We have spinning wheels, or

‘chakras’ which never stop…

~

Want to feel peaceful and calm?

Meditate daily, don’t be shy,

And your friends they may comment,

Share the love, tell them why…

~

…Why you’re feeling grounded

And rooted, like a tree to the earth.

Why those positive thoughts and good food

Give a sense of self-worth.

~

…Why you’re feeling creative

Bursting with thoughts and ideas,

As they ebb and flow like the water,

Eroding your fears.

~

…Why your ego’s not ‘pumped up’,

You’re calm and ‘together’,

You don’t listen to the bad things,

You don’t need ‘lucky heather’.

~

…Why your breathing’s steady and easy

While your heart pumps fresh air,

Pure and cleansed through your body,

To keep you alert and ‘all there’.

~

…Why you’re feeling expressive

And you’re speaking your mind,

Being open and clear,

It’s the best way, you will find.

~

…Why your sixth sense is open,

It’s your third eye, you see.

Is your perception of reality

With them or with ‘me’?

~

…Why your crown’s like a flower,

Its stem’s like your spine,

A petal for each chakra

Now you’re upright and ‘aligned’.

~

Now you’re beginning to see

What your thoughts can do,

Breathe slowly, be mindful

That it all starts with you.

By Carol Cameleon

How to reset yourself … relax with #TheZenZing

Welcome back to #TheZenZing, where I help you put the

zing back into your life.

This time I’m going to tell you how you can reset yourself by way of a chakra cleanse.

And look out for a chakra bracelet giveaway this month on my blog!

#TheZenZing energy energising health wellbeing chakra cleanse balance realign meditate visualisation
 We are all full of energy – whether good or bad…
~
We each have 7 main ‘openings’ known as chakras.
~
Our chakras should be fully open to allow for the universal life force (the energy) which surrounds us to enter our ‘being’ (our aura) and to allow the energy to flow freely, as it should.
~
When the energy flows freely though our auric layers and into our meridian lines, it keeps our chakras balanced and aligned.
~
Why is it so important to keep our chakras balanced and aligned?
~
Well, you will recall that our chakras should be open to allow the energy to flow through them?
~
If one or more of these chakras is not opened, the energy cannot enter our being and therefore we become out of balance.
~
When we get blockages, the energy cannot flow at ‘ease’ and we can get ‘dis-ease’.
~
You can see now why it is important to look after yourself, to keep your chakras balanced and aligned…
~
Our chakras are coloured as follows:
  • Root – red (base of your spine)
  • Sacral – orange
  • Solar Plexus – yellow (your abdomen area)
  • Heart – green
  • Throat – blue
  • Third Eye – violet (forehead just above and between your brows)
  • Crown – white

~

To cleanse your chakras and ‘reset’ yourself you can do a visualisation exercise ~ sit or lay with your eyes closed, starting at the root, imagine a ball of the relevant chakra colour moving up your body.  All the while be mindful of your breathing.  When you get to your crown chakra, imagine the ball of white light enveloping you in a warm cocoon…
Try it and notice how you feel…
~
Boost your zing and encourage your zen.
It’s all about #TheZenZing 🙂
~
How did you feel after your chakra cleanse?  Do you meditate regularly?  I’d love to hear from you.  Please comment (below) or tweet me @AllSortsHere and use the #TheZenZing hashtag.
Thank you 🙂

What I’m writing ~ #WonderfulWorldofWriting

what im writing righting #nextbigthing nextbigthing nbt chakras wellbeing children's stories series investment project #WonderfulWorldofWriting

I’ve fallen off the rails a bit, it’s fair to say.

I’ve been a bit lack lustre in my actual writing of late.

That’s not to say that I haven’t not been writing.  That’s to say that I have been writing but more blog posts than working on my projects.  Take for example, the #AtoZChallenge which took up a fair amount of writing time, albeit by way of short, sharp blogposts.

So, a quick recap on what my current writing projects are and where I’m at with them:

#TheNextBigThing ~ a Work In Progress that’s seen me revisit where the project’s going, which angle to approach and the whole ‘point’ of it.  That’s the whole idea of writing, that it morphs into other things.  That’s what’s exciting about it.  This project is going to be book for children to help them to understand about chakras in order to manage their emotions.  I’m studying an online Crystal Healing Practitioner’s course which has taught me so much more about what I could do with this project and how I can best ‘deal’ with the subject matter.

My children’s book.  In fact, series.  I’ve kept my readers and the #WhatImWriting linkers hanging for far too long with this one.  The truth is that I wasn’t in a position to share anything due to a very exciting opportunity which involved investment in my project.  One rather big hiccup later and I find myself back in the driving seat, with more material than I had before (which is very positive) and in the midst of planning a marketing campaign for a different kind of investment.  For now, I will call this project ‘F&W’.  By the end of June I’ll be able to share even more with you because that’s my personal deadline to get things moving.  And of course I’ll be sharing what that deadline means first with #WhatImWriting 🙂

Along with the bits and pieces from other avenues, and more exciting projects on the horizon, that, ladies and gents, is what I’m writing now that I’m righting the writing!

~

Join in with #WonderfulWorldofWriting and link up with any genre of writing… I’ll share every post on twitter and other social media.  Tweet your post direct to me @AllSortsHere and I’ll retweet (it’d be great if you could use #WonderfulWorldofWriting too!)

Linky open from 0600 Wednesday to midnight the following Tuesday GMT

If you’ve linked up before, please do copy my badge again because the link is now working, thanks 😉

‘V’ is for Vibration #AtoZChallenge

Hello and welcome to my take on the #AtoZChallenge.  You can find out why I’m taking part in ‘From Alpha to Zulu and everything in between…’

Onward!

V #AtoZChallenge blog writing a to z april challenge vibrations chakras happy positive reaction lotus flowers

‘V’ is for Vibration for #AtoZChallenge

 

A vibration is something we feel.

When we feel something, we often react to it.

When we feel something bad, we either close up or react to it in a bad way.

When we feel something good, we often open up or react to it in a good, positive way.

Our chakras are like lotus flowers which open or close, depending on how we react to a ‘vibration’ and they need to be open to align and balance.

Let’s keep our vibrations high, positive, happy and open for ourselves and for those around us.

Our vibrations are a chain reaction…

 

#HighlightsofHappy is my weekly blog linky.

Join me and link up any blog post with a positive and happy theme.  Perhaps your happy, positive post could be connected to a goal you have in mind, something funny you heard or something funny you’ve seen.  If it’s got a happy theme, it works for this linky 🙂 Link up as many as you like.

Let’s get the positive vibrations going good and strong and let’s share them in #HighlightsofHappy 🙂

~

 This post is for ‘V’ in the #AtoZChallenge.
