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.
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
But there are things you can do to keep that balance and keep ‘aligned’
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?
Hello and welcome to another exciting giveaway!
Yes, you can win this pretty chakra bracelet.
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.

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!)

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…’
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.
