Chakra Colors Image

Chakras are the energy centers of our subtle body located along the spine. Each of them has its own color and is responsible for the vibration and effect on a certain energy node. The chakra colors indicate our current physical, emotional and spiritual state.

In this article, I will share with you some very important information about the chakra colors, their meaning, as well as how to use this knowledge practically for your meditation and everyday life!

Let’s get started!

7 Main Chakra Colors

Red color: Root chakra (Muladhara)

Red is a bright and warm color that symbolizes the first chakra – Muladhara.

It is important to remember that red color differs from other colors of chakras by sharpness and saturation. Therefore it is responsible for producing lower vibrations.

Be careful when choosing a shade of red! The bright red color represents sexual energy. The dark red is a more aggressive shade that is directly related to fear.

Red Color Characteristics:

  • heat;
  • courage;
  • self confidence;
  • rebirth;
  • struggle for life;
  • security;
  • stability;
  • sexuality;
  • earthiness;
  • impetuosity;
  • individuality.

Add red to your surroundings when you feel tired. The red chakra provides nourishment from the Earth and connects your spiritual body with the physical.

Red Food For Muladhara Chakra

The value of red food lies in its ability to accelerate the flow of metabolic processes in our bodies. Also, this food is rich in flavonoids (these substances are responsible for good memory and sharp vision), lycopene (responsible for the normalization of blood), and vitamin C (improves immunity and helps fight viral infections).

If you want to balance your Muladhara chakra, you should add more red to your daily diet: tomatoes, red pepper, red cabbage, etc. These products not only promote the healing of Muladhara chakra but also optimize the body’s ability to resist free radicals. Thus, you create a natural barrier against the destruction of the DNA structure and prevent the development of cancer.

Move your thumbs. Try to feel the texture and softness of the carpet, the warmth, and energy of the red color.

Visualize how your feet are filled with red light, which then rises higher up the legs to the Muladhara chakra. Concentrate your thoughts on answering the question: “What is the relationship between this chakra and the color red?”.

Pay attention to your Root chakra. Imagine that a pure pulsating red light enters your aura and goes down to your feet.

Continue performing this exercise for at least 5 minutes. As a result, you will feel that your legs have become warm, you feel good, your body is filled with energy.

This chakra colors meditation is recommended to be performed outdoors. If this is not possible, you should lie down on the floor and imagine the blue sky overhead.

So, lie down on the ground or on the floor. The selected location must be protected from direct sunlight. Look up at the endless blue sky. Do you think space is infinite or does it have an edge? Think about the fact that we are surrounded by many galaxies, but we know almost nothing about them.

Man and even the entire planet are negligible in the scale of the Universe, like drops in the ocean. However, the ocean wouldn’t exist without the drops. Moreover, each of the drops is unique in its own way.

So every person is special. Each of us has a unique mission or role in the universal cosmic plan.

Now pay attention to the sun, but do not look directly at it. Think about how important its role is in the life of our planet and each person in particular. It warms us and illuminates the Earth. Without the sun, we’d be in total darkness.

Look at the light coming from the sun and going into the endless distance. Imagine that you are moving along the beam, moving further and further into Space. Heavenly blue light envelops you with a protective cover of peace and tranquility.

Mentally look back, look at the planets and stars. Listen to the sounds coming from them. Their joint sound merges into a single beautiful melody. Feel how these sounds resonate with your body, with every muscle and every organ.

Find the sound resonating with your Throat chakra. Feel its vibrations all over the body, they spread around the neck, shoulders, as well as down the arms.

Now you feel a sense of inner peace and listen to the music of the planetary spheres, all this allows your body to restore its original integrity. Now it is easier for you to follow the path of spiritual development, nothing hinders you.

Take it as a life experience that will help you in the future. Drop everything that is alien to you, that imposes an environment or stereotypes.

Man can be likened to a garden. In the garden, we sow seeds to see the shoots and grow plants. In the same way, the seeds of wisdom sown in the soil of the mind are sure to come up. The experience and knowledge gained in life are necessary for understanding ourselves and the laws of life.

If you meditate before going to sleep, let the dark blue cover of the night envelop you with a haze of sleep. You sink into the night, into a deep and refreshing sleep. And in the morning you will wake up full of energy and strength.

On the path of spiritual development, you are waited by obstacles and barriers. To overcome them, you need strength and self-confidence. But in addition, you will need humility, without which it will not be possible to achieve a state of divine love. Think about what qualities you need to work out.

Now visualize your Sahasrara chakra. It emits a gentle purple light. You are enveloped in this light. It dissolves any pain and problem, filling you with divine love.

Feng Shui Christmas Tree Placement in 2022 Image

The holiday season has officially arrived, so it’s time to decorate your Christmas tree! In this article, I will share with you important tips on Feng Shui Christmas tree placement for 2022.

What’s so special about the Christmas Tree placement? Why do we need to use Feng Shui Christmas tree placement rules in this simple action we’ve done so many times before? The thing is that a Christmas tree with bright decorations, garlands, and lights is a powerful source of Yang energy. When we place a Christmas tree in a certain sector of the house, we activate the energy of this sector.

Also, when we put gifts under the tree, we symbolically manifest abundance, pleasant surprises, and love-giving. When the whole family gathers next to the tree on Christmas morning, we all feel loved, cared for, and joyful. These positive emotions activate the energy of the sector where a Christmas tree is located.

From an astrological point of view, each sector can be a source of positive or negative energy. And if a Christmas tree gets into a sector with negative energy, this energy gets activated and attracts all kinds of problems into your life. If the tree gets into a sector with positive energy, it gives the opposite effect – you attract luck, abundance, and well-being. All these astrological subtleties are calculated by Feng Shui masters.

Everything is important in Feng Shui Christmas tree placement: where the Christmas tree will be placed, how active the room will be where you place it, what color you choose for its decoration, and what date and time you choose to install the Christmas tree. In short, each seemingly insignificant detail can have a huge impact on the energy of the house.

In this article, I will not delve into the complex Feng Shui formulas but instead, I will give you practical tips on how to activate the positive energy of your home and avoid the activation of negative energy.

Why Is It So Important Where the Christmas Lights Are?

How to choose eco-friendly christmas tree image

In terms of Feng Shui, there are two kinds of energy — Yin and Yang. Yang energy is active and live. If the Yang energy fills the favorable sector of your home, it activates the flow of positive energy and attracts good luck to you. For example, you can suddenly get a bonus, your salary can be raised, you may come up with a new great idea, etc.

However, if the Yang energy gets into the unfavorable sector, it activates all kinds of failures in your life – you can lose money, health, happiness, and peace, and you can attract misunderstandings and conflicts with loved ones, etc.

Following Feng Shui Christmas tree rules, will help you to attract good luck and improve your life.

Feng Shui Christmas Tree Placement in 2022

Energy changes every year. Therefore, the following recommendations were created by considering the energies of December 2022.

In order to determine which sector to put the Christmas tree in, you need to have a Bagua map of your house. If you don’t have a Bagua map or know what it is, read my article “The Feng Shui Bagua Map”.

So, here are the main recommendations for Feng Shui Christmas tree placement in 2022!

Which Sector to Choose According to the Feng Shui Christmas Tree Placement Rules In 2022?

By placing a Christmas tree here, you are activating the energy of success, business luck, prosperity, and good fortune. Every time you turn on Christmas lights here, you attract good fortune into your house.

This sector brings contradictory energies this month. On one side, it brings wealth and windfall luck, but on another – a risk of betrayals and financial loss. The water element (blue color) will help you to protect yourself from negative energies and attract the positive. Therefore, it’s best to use blue decorations in the Southwest sector and decorate your Christmas tree with blue ornaments. However, do not use the Christmas lights in this sector this year!! The lights represent the Fire element, and when displayed in the Southwest sector in December 2022, it may activate undesired events in your life.

West sector of your house or West corner of your living room

South and Center

Do not place your Christmas tree in the South and central sectors of your house and in the South corner and central part of your living room! These two sectors are very dangerous in December 2022! Avoid lighting Christmas lights, candles, or fireplaces here. By activating these sectors, you may attract all kinds of misfortune, severe health problems, losses, and dangerous events into your life.

When to set up your Christmas Tree?

The date and time you decided to install your Christmas tree also play a big role. Here are favorable dates in December 2022 when you can do it:

4 Signs You Have Financial Anxiety & How to Overcome It

Published

on

financial anxiety image

According to the Mind over Money survey by Capital One and The Decision Lab, 77% of Americans feel anxious about their financial situation. Thinking or worrying about money is different from financial anxiety. Financial anxiety is the obsessive fear of financial roadblocks inhibiting day-to-day activities and financial planning. It impedes our judgments and matters involving money.

Recent research shows that anxiety is people’s most common emotion toward money. If you are anxious about money, you will have issues making intelligent financial decisions. Unfortunately, financial literacy is one of the most overlooked lessons. For this reason, when financial anxiety hits, many people do not know it, and worse, they do not know how to deal with it. 

4 Signs You Have Financial Anxiety

Signs of financial anxiety can come off as an identifiable day-to-day behavior. However, sometimes, you may not even realize you are facing it. Watch out for the following signs:

#1: Overspending

This may sound ironic, but it is one of the most common signs of financial anxiety. You may think that since you are always worried about money, you will spend less and less on it. However, with financial anxiety, you end up going overboard on shopping sprees to get temporary comfort when you put your hands on money. This goes hand in hand with hoarding. You may be financially anxious if your comfort only comes through material items.

#2: Fear of spending

If you are frugal beyond reason, you are most likely battling financial anxiety. You might be obsessed with saving every penny and would rather stay in uncomfortable conditions rather than spend money to buy necessary convenience.

#3: Uncomfortable around finances

People with financial anxiety have difficulty around matters involving finance and financial literacy. If you get uneasy about opening up in finances, creating a budget, or just curating a retirement plan, it’s a massive sign of financial anxiety.

#4: Obsessive behavior

If you are obsessed with money, such as constantly checking your bank account balances, planning for the money you don’t have yet, and even accounting for money to the last penny, it could be a severe sign of financial anxiety.

What Causes Financial Anxiety?

There is a common belief that a lack of money causes financial anxiety. It is one of the causes, but it has more to it than being just broke. Many wealthy people also experience financial anxiety.

 Here are some triggers of financial anxiety:

  • Lack of financial education and literacy;
  • Your childhood experiences and relationship with money;
  • Weak job security;
  • Previous money mistakes that messed you up big time;
  • Fear and uncertainty of what the future holds;
  • The increased cost of living.

How to Overcome Financial Anxiety?

It is not enough to identify signs of your financial anxiety. Financial anxiety clouds your mind resulting in poorer financial decisions. Use the following tips to overcome financial anxiety.

#1: Make a budget plan

Budget planning is the most effective strategy for reducing money-related stress. It will help you plan where your money will go each month. Also, it will help you ensure that you don’t accidentally spend too much; you can set a firm limit to stay under while you shop.

#2: Get money literacy classes

This is one of the most popular ways to get over financial anxiety; getting financial lessons. Such classes can help you deal with signs and causes of anxiety.

You want to get a class that will help you understand the following:

  • The importance of emergency funds;
  • How to save without being excessively frugal;
  • How to attract abundance in your life, as most money issues come when there is a lack of it;
  • How to manage debts.

#3: Create an emergency fund

Having an emergency fund can significantly reduce your stress and anxiety about money. It will also give you a sense of security because you know you have enough money set aside to pay your bills if you have some unexpected expenses, emergencies, or lose your job.

#4: Use Feng Shui to overcome financial crisis

Bad Feng Shui Image

You can modify the space you live in from a trap to a haven that lets you prosper. Yes, you read that right; Feng Shui is about advancing your space and its energy to attract prosperity and happiness. Moreover, it will help you to reduce financial anxiety and feel more comfortable and secure in your own home.

Here are some Feng Shui tips that can make your space and home an oasis of prosperity:

  • Decluttering: clutter in the house accumulates a lot of procrastination energy. Besides, the clutter all over is bad for the vision and brings mental pessimism. Get rid of the clutter and let go of that stuck energy. As soon as you declutter your house, you will feel how your anxiety got reduced.
  • Activate your dining room the Feng Shui way: Your dining room is a haven for abundance in your house; it needs to be set the Feng Shui way. For starters, the dining table should be rectangular and not circular. Secondly, keep clocks out of the dining room. They may signify the end of prosperity. Have a mirror; mirrors reflect the food on the dining table, doubling the abundance. For more tips, check out our article Feng Shui for Kitchen and Dining Room.
  • Radiate abundance from your fridge: You can use your fridge to show the universe that you are ready to receive abundance. First, always throw away any stale food. Secondly, always have an unopened bottle of champagne ready for the celebration. Thirdly, always fill your fridge with fresh and healthy foods, not junk.
  • Invite the Dragon into your space: The Dragon symbolizes success, fortune, and achievements in the Chinese Pantheon. This is the way Chinese businesses always have this totem on their logo. Have a painting of the dragon in your house to invite long-lasting success.
  • Put the three-legged toad around your front door: the three-legged toad signifies money-making in the Feng shui principles. It attracts success in money making. This symbol also ensures you receive money on time from your different ventures.

#5: Use powerful essential oils to attract money into your life

Essential oils have been used for a long time to attract money. In ancient times, merchants used essential oils to sell their merchandise faster and even attract better-paying clients. Essential oils are also suitable for retaining clients.

Be mindful of what you feel and how you react to things associated with your finances. Listen to your body. Does your mind start racing? Does your heart rate spike? Does your breath shorten?

Everything always works out. And this time, it will also work out. Release tension from your body and try to relax all your muscles. Make mediation your daily practice.

The November New Moon: Here’s How It Will Affect Us

Published

on

July new moon image

The Moon is waning to a new moon on November 23rd at 2:57 p.m. PT (5:57 p.m. EST). This is when the Moon is lost in the glare of the Sun and completely invisible. The November new moon is a powerful time that can give impetus to our spiritual development and personal evolution. I will share everything you need to know about this new moon in this article.

The New Moon In Vedic Astrology

In Vedic astrology, the new moon is called Amavasya. It is the time when the Moon and the Sun line up.

According to Vedic astrologyShukla paksha, the brightest part of the lunar month begins with Amavasya, when one can count on the indulgence and benefits of the gods. It is recommended to dedicate the new moon to spiritual practices, offerings, and prayers. It is also considered a favorable period for completing previously started projects, cleaning, and charity.

Amavasya is considered the most favorable period to engage in your personal development; spend this day in meditation and prayers.

It is said that any activity related to material affairs will not bring any benefits on this day. However, any spiritual practice you engage in will multiply its benefits when performed during Amavasya. The same can be said about charity and donations done during Amavasya – you will be generously rewarded for your acts of kindness.

The November New Moon

According to Jyotish (Vedic astrology), the November new moon occurs in Scorpio. 

The moon in Scorpio promises us a lunar month of transformation and inner changes. The task of this lunar month is the destruction of the old paradigms that no longer serve us. This lunar month can aggravate issues related to inherited property and financial affairs. It can also bring an internal crisis and emotional vulnerability into our lives. Therefore, this period is perfect for emotional cleansing.

Another theme that this lunar month is going to activate in our lives is the need for security. We will have to find a way to feel more safe, secure, and protected. Accumulated fears, resentments, jealousy, and mistrust rise to the surface. Use protection mantras, breathing exercises, and meditation to build a feeling of security and safety.

How does the Moon in Scorpio affect our mind?

Emotionally, these days are not going to be comfortable:

  • There is a need for emotional release (for example, crying out your pain);
  • Intuition manifests itself more strongly, psychic abilities increase;
  • Suspiciousness and anxiety increase;
  • Interest in transcendental knowledge;
  • Secrecy and suspicion increase;
  • Feeling of loneliness;
  • Spontaneous aggression;
  • Sexual attraction is aggravated.

The lesson of this period is to learn to choose your words carefully. If some situation has caused your distrust, double-check the information and only then act. It is very beneficial to chant the mantra: “OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI” during this new moon.

The New Moon In Anuradha Nakshatra

According to Vedic astrology, the November new moon takes place in the lunar mansion of Anuradha Nakshatra. Let’s take a closer look at this lunar mansion and what kind of energy it represents.

Anuradha is a Saturn-ruled nakshatra that is symbolized by a lotus. Saturn’s rulership over this nakshatra will bring our karma to the surface. This may result in some delays in our plans, obstacles on our way, and challenges. Many of us may feel frustrated, angry, and apathetic because of this. However, we should remember that Saturn teaches us patience and determination. Therefore, those who can master these qualities will be rewarded by Saturn. Similarly to the lotus (the symbol of Anuradha nakshatra), flowering is preceded by a long upward journey through murky waters before arriving into the light. Remember, during this lunar month, be patient, stay determined, and you will eventually reach success in whatever you’re doing. Don’t let obstacles stop you!

Anuradha nakshatra also promotes balance in relationships. Therefore, it’s an excellent time to embrace your leadership and organizational skills. This is a good time for working in large groups of people, socializing, and putting energy into your romantic relationships

The new moon in Anuradha nakshatra signifies a particularly auspicious time for spiritual practice, which is great for softening the impact of Saturn on your life.

Health-related Issues

Anuradha nakshatra may cause chest infections, nose bleeds, constipation, hemorrhoids, high fever, menstrual problems, and weakness of the bladder, genitals, rectum, or pubic bone. It can also cause heart problems. 

Dos and Don’ts During the September New Moon

Amavasya is one of the best days for donations. When you’re making donations during the new moon, the beneficial effect of it is greatly enhanced, and your negative karma gets purified.

Our emotions play a very important role during the new moon. If you are happy on this day, you will become even happier; if you are unhappy – you will become unhappier. Any of our qualities are strengthened on this day. Therefore, the new moon is a very important time for spiritual seekers since the effect of any puja or recited mantra becomes even stronger on this day.

Amavasya is a great time for new beginnings. This is the time to discard old habits and thoughts, all failures, and embrace the new experience that the new moon promises us.

Favorable activities during Amavasya:

  • Completing tasks
  • Paying off debts
  • Throwing away the old and unnecessary things
  • Fasting
  • Giving donations and gifts
  • Meeting with your parents or other family members
  • Performing any spiritual practices
  • House cleaning (it will help you to clean not only the space around you but also your mind)
  • Honoring deceased ancestors (you can just think about them or look at their pictures)
  • Doing charity (you can donate anything except money)
  • Tuning in to harmony and love
  • Forgiving yourself and others

Unfavorable activities during Amavasya:

  • Making important purchases
  • Getting married
  • Making important appointments
  • Start training
  • Making promises
  • Surgeries
  • Start building a house, or enter the house
  • Making final decisions
  • Taking trips, business trips, travel
  • Making repairs, renovations
  • Appointing important meetings that can affect the execution of transactions, the conduct of business, etc.
  • Making money transactions (investing money, transferring large sums, borrowing or lend);
  • Overworking

Manifesting On New Moon

It’s very beneficial to use positive affirmations during the new moon. During this time, affirmations have a special power – they make your positive thoughts and intentions grow and gain strength more quickly. That is why such practices as creating a vision board or Reiki wish box will be particularly effective on the new moon.

Here are some examples of the high-vibe affirmations you can practice on the New Moon:

  • Love is my inspiration, my conversation, and my life! Peace is my natural state! Gratitude is my way of seeing and being! The face of God greets me everywhere I go!
  • Every cell of my body temple celebrates health and wholeness!
  • All my relationships match the high vibration of unconditional love!
  • Positive thoughts revitalize my body temple!
  • Abundance blesses every aspect of my life!
  • I am guided, governed, and gifted by the eternal presence of Spirit within me! The high frequency of divine love resounds through all of my relationships! Excellence is encoded in my soul and evident in my expression! A consciousness of awe and wonder makes things possible in my life!
  • My commitment to peace, love, and kindness raises the vibrations of the planet!
  • The sweet water of appreciation bathes everything I do!

The Moon Mantra

During the New Moon, it’s beneficial to chant the Moon mantra “Om Chandraya Namaha” 108 times. This powerful mantra vibrates with the energy of the Moon. Chanting this beautiful mantra will help you see things more clearly and look beyond “illusions” to see the deeper meaning in things and the truth that lies within.

Buddha Shakyamuni Mantra

It is very beneficial to chant the Buddha Shakyamuni mantra during the new moon. Recite “Om Muni Muni Maha Muniye Soha” 3, 7, 21, or 108 times. When chanting the mantra, visualize how the Divine Light purifies all your subtle bodies and frees your consciousness from outdated programs.

Chanting the Buddha Shakyamuni mantra brings a change in our consciousness, helps to reach enlightenment, inspires us with new ideas, and gives us confidence in our abilities. Also, it relieves uncertainty and distorted perceptions of reality.

The Bottom Line

Although this lunar month promises to bring lots of emotions to the surface, it also has great potential for our transformation and growth. If we can stay determined in our spiritual practice, our moral principles, and our higher goals, we will discover great opportunities for achieving something really amazing. The November New Moon doesn’t promise us a quiet time but invites us to re-discover our inner potential, to reconnect with the community, and find ways to serve humanity. Saturn is going to test us, but this test is only designed to make us stronger and to boost our personal evolution. Spiritual practices are essential during this new moon. They will help you to reconnect with your Higher Self and soften the impact of Saturn on your life. The lessons will still be there, but you will be able to understand them more quickly and easily. In general, this is a good time for emotional cleansing, releasing old energy, and finding new ways to spread your Light on this planet.
