    New Moon Magic

    The new moon is a beautiful time for setting intentions, connecting to your deepest dreams and desires, and releasing what no longer serves you to make space for new beginnings. If you’ve been holding onto old, heavy energy within, this is the time to release what’s weighing you down to embrace new, fresh energy.

    This is also the time to embrace your ability to create anything you want in this life. You are a powerful creator, and while you may sometimes forget this in your day-to-day life, the new moon offers an opportunity to step back into your power and claim the life that’s been waiting for you.

    But it isn’t simply about creating anything; it’s about creating the truest, most beautiful life you can imagine for yourself. You have specific dreams and desires that have been placed in your heart. If you’ve been living out of alignment with your dreams, this is the time to connect back to your dreams and trust that they’ve been given to you for a reason.

    Your dreams are meant for you and you alone.

    So during this time, make space to truly connect with your inner self. You might have a sacred space in your home, or maybe you prefer to go outside beneath the stars. Wherever you go, just make sure you have some uninterrupted time to truly get in touch with your inner voice. What does the life you want to create for yourself look like? What fears are holding you back? Over the next month, what do you want to release and what do you want to embrace?

    Honor your dreams. Honor your heart. And honor the fact that the love and light of the Universe flows within you. You can create the life you’ve always dreamed of.

    Let this be the first step.

    In this post, discover 35 calming affirmations to help you cultivate a sense of serenity and deep inner peace, no matter what’s going on in your external world.

    Inhale Peace, Exhale Worry

    How do you speak to yourself when you feel worried or anxious? What about when you’re feeling uneasy about something that’s happened in the past or may happen in the future? How do you respond to uncertainty and doubt?

    Where does your mind go when everything in your external world begins to feel messy, scattered, and out of control?

    In tense and anxious moments, it’s easy to get lost in your own troublesome thoughts. One negative thought leads to another, which leads to another, sending you down a rabbit hole of persistent worries and fear. Often, your brain does this to protect itself. Maybe you don’t want to get your hopes up too much, and you want to protect your heart in case things don’t work out the way you hope.

    If you’ve ever felt this way before, know that it’s okay. Instead of criticizing yourself for having these thoughts, breathe love and compassion into your worries and fears.

    And know this:

    You are in control of your thoughts. You are the only one who can determine how you get to feel in every moment. There is nothing outside of you that can bring you the peace and serenity you’ve been looking for. Why? Because deep inner peace already exists within. It’s always there, even when you don’t see it. It isn’t about finding peace; it’s about releasing anything that obscures the peace, love, and tranquility that you have access to in every moment of every day.

    It’s okay to feel anxious sometimes. Just know that you have the power to both acknowledge your worries and fears while still rising above anything that doesn’t serve or support your highest good.

    Below, you’ll find 35 calming affirmations to help you in moments of worry, anxiety, and fear. These calming affirmations are designed to help you take back your power from anything that’s been weighing you down. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, let these calming affirmations soothe your spirit and bring you deep inner peace. Whenever you notice your brain straying to worrying and anxious thoughts, use these affirmations to gently bring you back to the present moment and help you cultivate a sense of serenity, stability, and strength.

    And for some tips on how to get the most out of using affirmations in your daily life, be sure to check out my post, How to Use Affirmations (So They Actually Work).

    Sacral Chakra Healing: Open & Balance the Sacral Chakra

    In this post, discover 14 powerful sacral chakra healing practices that will help you to open and balance your sacral chakra, your body’s energy center for creativity, passion, prosperity, joy, and sensuality. Plus, download 35 affirmations and 30 journal prompts for the sacral chakra below!

    sacral chakra healing

    What is the Sacral Chakra?

    Located in your lower abdomen, your sacral chakra is your energy center for creativity, joy, prosperity, passion, openness, and playfulness. An open and balanced sacral chakra means you embrace your creativity, have high self-esteem, and are able to relax and have fun, releasing work to engage in play. Pleasure is a word often associated with the sacral chakra, as having an open sacral chakra means you find delight in all of life’s pleasures.

    This is also the energy center for sensuality and sexuality. When energy is flowing freely through this chakra, you’re more likely to have a strong, positive relationship with your body. You honor your desires and have healthy intimate relationships with others.

    The sacral chakra is about more than creativity and high self-esteem, though. When this energy center is balanced, you feel more open, adaptable, compassionate, and forgiving. You’re honest with yourself and others, and you’re able to let go of grudges that don’t serve your well-being. Because you have a strong and healthy relationship with yourself, you know that holding onto negative emotions such as anger, resentment, and bitterness only harms you in the long run, so you’re able to let these things go in order to take care of your mind, body, and spirit.

    In this post, we’ll look deeper into the sacral chakra and discuss 14 powerful practices for opening, balancing, and healing your second energy center. First, here are some of the key attributes of the sacral chakra:

    • Sanskrit Name: Svadhishthana (Sva = “self”; shthana = “place”)
    • Location: Lower abdomen (below your navel)
    • Color: Orange
    • Body Parts: Womb, Bladder, Lower Back, Reproductive Organs
    • Symbol: Six-petaled lotus with a moon crescent in the center
    • Element: Water
    • Mantra: VAM
    • Affirmation: I feel
    • Balanced Attributes: Creative, Joyful, Playful, Prosperous, Stable, Sexual, Sensual, Passionate, Open, Energetic, Honest, Forgiving
    • Imbalanced Attributes: Lack of Creativity, Unstable, Insecure, Anxious, Scattered, Lazy, Fearful, Disconnected, Depressed, Unmotivated, Negative, Lack of Sensuality
    • Fundamental Need: Emotional flow, desire, sexuality

    Sacral Chakra Healing

    If you live in a culture that prioritizes work over play, sacral chakra healing can be an especially important and profound self-care practice. It’s also important if you grew up with a negative relationship your own body, or if you’re not fully comfortable in your sensuality and sexuality.

    So how does sacral chakra healing really work? First, it’s important to understand your chakra system and the energy within your body. While you often only hear about the seven main chakras, there are actually 114 chakras throughout your body. (And some believe there to be more!) These chakras are connected by energy channels called nadis. You can think of nadis kind of like roads that vehicles travel upon. Energy travels through these energy channels to get to each of your chakras.

    In a perfect system, your energy is flowing freely all the time. Unfortunately, energy often becomes stuck inside this system, causing your chakras to become either overactive or underactive. Ignoring these blockages won’t make them go away. To get energy moving again, you need to engage in healing practices to help stimulate your life force (prana).

    The type of healing you need will depend on the level of blockage you’re experiencing. For instance, if you’re experiencing some writer’s block or feeling excess negativity within, but this isn’t normal for you, meditation and gentle movement through yoga may help to get the energy flowing again. But if your blockage goes deeper, you may need to engage in profound inner child healing practices in order to get to the source of the blockage so that you can work with it, release it, and stimulate the free flow of energy within.

    Below, you’ll find 14 powerful healing practices to open, balance, and activate your sacral chakra. You can use any of these practices as part of your daily routine, or you can choose a few when you feel like your sacral chakra is blocked and imbalanced. I’ve also linked to several other posts that provide further understanding into the healing practices on this list.

    Get Creative

    How often do you make space in your life for creativity?

    Actually, let me rephrase that.

    How often do you make space in your life for creativity that has absolutely no end goal? It’s not meant to be productive. It’s not meant to be good. And it’s definitely not meant to be perfect. It’s just pure, unrestricted, joyful creativity.

    This is the type of creativity you feel when you’re in a total flow state. And there’s a good chance it’s not the type of creative outlet you’re best at. For instance, I’m a writer. I’m writing blog posts and articles every single day, and I also often work on fiction stories in my spare time. But even then, I have a very hard time letting go of my inner perfectionist. So when I’m working with my sacral chakra, I never turn to writing to stimulate my creativity. Rather, I often do something that I’m not very objectively good at, like painting. I embrace the fun and play of it all, and I let go and allow my inner creative to guide me wherever she wants to go.

    Embracing your creative flow is one of the most beneficial practices you can do when working with your sacral chakra. Do something you feel good about that isn’t related to your job and that you don’t feel the need to be perfect when doing. Let it be both messy and beautiful!

    Spend Time In Water

    The sacral chakra’s associated element is water, and there are several powerful ways you can use water to connect with this energy center. My personal favorite practice is to take a luxurious bubble bath. When your sacral chakra is open and balanced, you have a positive relationship with your body and embrace your own divine sensuality. A warm bubble bath is the perfect way to honor your body. I also love to pair this practice with aromatherapy and crystal healing, which you’ll read more about below. Turn off the lights, place your sacral chakra healing crystals around the tub, and use cinnamon-scented candles or essential oils to set the mood for profound sacral chakra healing.

    (Not a bath person? Get some ideas for shower meditations here.)

    Of course, you can also find water all over nature, which is one of our greatest teachers and healers of all. Oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams all offer opportunities to connect with your sacral chakra. If you’re not too keen on getting in the water, that’s okay! Even sitting near the water while meditating, journaling, or simply sitting in silence can offer meaningful healing.

    Mirror Work

    Mirror work can be a beneficial practice for your entire chakra system as a whole, but I especially like it for sacral chakra healing because it can help build self-esteem and connect you to your body, which are all important aspects of the sacral chakra. What does mirror work entail exactly? First, stand in front of a mirror and look yourself in the eyes. If possible, try to use a mirror that shows at least half your body. Bring a gentle smile to your lips. As you’re looking yourself in the eyes, start complimenting yourself. Affirm all the things you love about yourself, both inside and out. If you’re complimenting your arms, you can gently brush your fingertips against your arms in loving reverence. The same goes for your face, chest, legs, and all the rest of your divine being. If you’re feeling super confident, you can even start dancing in front of the mirror. Your dancing can be fun and joyful or sultry and sensual; do what feels most comfortable to you! When you’re about done, look yourself in the eyes and tell yourself I love you. Repeat this practice as often as you want.

    Uplifting Affirmations

    Positive affirmations are a powerful way to lift your vibrations and align yourself with the energy you want to attract. For sacral chakra healing, focus on words that affirm your joy, creativity, passion, prosperity, openness, sensuality, and sexuality. Use these affirmations throughout your day.

    Below, you can find some sacral chakra affirmations to get you started. For more, check out my post, 35 Sacral Chakra Affirmations to Live a Passionate Life.

    • I am open to the flow of creativity.
    • I am creative, passionate, and inspired. 
    • I feel joyful, energetic, and alive.
    • I am pure, positive energy.
    • My emotions flow freely in a balanced and healthy way. 
    • I allow the flow of positive energy to effortlessly move through me.
    • I live a creative, vibrant, passionate life.
    • I am vibrating pure joy, abundance, and prosperity.
    • Endless prosperity flows to and through me.
    • I am cultivating a beautiful life free of stress, worries, or fear.
    • I deserve absolute and unconditional bliss.
    • Unconditional joy is my birthright.

    Dance

    When your sacral chakra is blocked, you may feel withdrawn, tense, negative, and/or fearful. Dancing is one of the best ways to allow energy to flow freely throughout your body as you release any tension you may be holding onto within. Does the idea of dancing in front of people feel too overwhelming? That’s okay! This practice can often be most beneficial when you’re completely alone. If you’re at home or somewhere safe, play some music that resonates with you. It can be fast and upbeat or slow and sensual. You can set the mood by turning off lights, lighting candles, and/or changing into clothes that make you feel your best. Then, all you have to do is simply dance. Let loose, knowing you are completely safe. You can move in any way that feels right to you, but I do recommend connecting to your hips and lower abdomen from time to time in order to stimulate the energy in and around your sacral chakra.

    Meditation

    There are several ways you can use meditation to connect with your sacral chakra and guide you toward profound healing. One sacral chakra healing practice is to envision a bright orange glowing orb in your lower abdomen. As you breathe in, see the orb getting bigger. As you breathe out, see it growing brighter. You can also recite some uplifting affirmations as you do this.

    You might also choose to envision living a day in the life as your truest, most authentic self with an open and balanced sacral chakra. How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? What do you do during the day? How do you speak to yourself and others? How do you incorporate play, fun, creativity, and joy into your day? How do you feel about your body? See all the details play out in your visualization, and feel the positive feelings of having an open sacral chakra.

    Write a Letter to Your Inner Child

    When you were a child, was using your imagination encouraged or discouraged? Did you engage in creative activities? Did you find creativity to be fun, or were you often preoccupied with being perfect? Did anyone ever say anything to discourage your creativity? Were you forced to grow up too fast? Take some time to sit and write a letter to your inner child. Affirm to this part of you that it’s safe to be creative. Encourage them to play more and to do things that bring them joy. Tell your inner child everything he or she needs to hear regarding play, fun, creativity, and joy. Build up their self-esteem. Was there something you always wished an adult would tell you? Tell it to yourself now.

    Journaling

    Journaling is one of my personal favorite practices for connecting with all of my chakras. If you can, I recommend making journaling a sacred time in which you’re not interrupted. If you have a quiet spot in your home, set some time aside to go there so you can connect with your inner self. You might even choose to surround yourself with crystals, essential oils, and other healing tools.

    To work with the sacral chakra, you can use journal prompts that are dedicated to connecting with the sacral chakra. To get started, you can check out my post, 30 Journal Prompts to Open and Heal the Sacral Chakra. Another powerful journaling practice is to write down sacral chakra affirmations, feeling the uplifting and positive emotions of the words as you write them. You can even make your journaling a time to get creative. Do you have an awesome idea for a movie, book, or TV show? Write down the story in your journal! (Just make sure to release your inner perfectionist during this time.)

    Visualization

    Visualization can be a powerful tool in connecting to your inner self, healing your energy, and manifesting the life you desire. One reason it can be especially powerful for sacral chakra healing is that it allows you to engage with your imagination. If you haven’t used your imagination much since you were a child, this can be an especially profound healing method for you. There are several ways you can use visualization to connect with the sacral chakra. You can use any of the exercises outlined in the Meditation section above, or you can simply allow your imagination to take over your visualization and see where it leads. Since water is the element connected to the sacral chakra, you might also visualize yourself playing beneath a waterfall or floating in a river. Imagine that the water is rinsing away all negative and blocked energy and healing your life force within.

    Yoga

    Yoga is a profound healing practice for all of your chakras, but I especially love it for working with the sacral chakra because it allows you to connect with your body in a personal and powerful way. For sacral chakra healing, make sure to incorporate hip-opening poses into your practice. During your practice, breathe into your lower abdomen and focus on connecting with your sacral chakra. Let this practice be a sacred time in which you honor your body and treat it with respect and reverence.

    Here are some poses (asanas) you can incorporate into your practice when working with the sacral chakra:

    • Pigeon
    • Butterly
    • Cobra
    • Frog
    • Goddess squat

    Aromatherapy

    Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural plant extracts for therapeutic healing. This is one of my favorite underutilized healing practices, and it’s super easy to incorporate into your daily routine. For sacral chakra healing, use citrusy and/or spicy scents such as Orange, Tangerine, Cinnamon, Bergamot, Neroli, Cypress, Cardamom. For more information on how to use essential oils to heal the chakras, check out my post, A Guide to Essential Oils for Chakra Healing.

    Color Therapy

    In chakra healing, color therapy is the practice of surrounding yourself with the corresponding color of the chakra you want to open, activate, and/or heal. For sacral chakra healing, that means immersing yourself in all things orange. You can eat orange food, write in orange pen, wear orange clothing, and surround yourself in orange items. One of my favorite color therapy practices is to write empowering affirmations on colored post-it notes. So for sacral chakra healing, you might write uplifting sacral chakra affirmations on orange post-its.

    One of the most important things to remember here is to be intentional with this practice. Choose your items with the intention of healing your sacral chakra. You might find it helpful to play an affirmation game with your color therapy practice. For instance, if you decide to wear a piece of jewelry that has an orange gemstone, say an uplifting sacral chakra affirmation every time you touch or see this item. You can also decide that anytime you see an orange item while you’re out and about during the day, you’ll internally say a sacral chakra affirmation or express gratitude for an aspect of yourself related to the sacral chakra.

    Food

    Food can have a profound influence on your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual self. While we often think of food as primarily affecting the body, it also affects the mind and spirit as well. For sacral chakra healing, add your favorite spices (such as cinnamon) to drinks and meals. Add orange produce such as carrots, mangoes, and oranges to your snacks or meals. You can also add sweet, antioxidant-filled honey to your tea, yogurt, or toast. (Or however you best like to savor it.)

    Crystals & Gemstones

    Each chakra is linked to powerful crystals that help you to connect to your energy centers and stimulate the effortless flow within. For sacral chakra healing, you can use crystals that stimulate creativity and passion, such as Orange Calcite, Jasper, Carnelian, Red Tiger’s Eye, Coral, and Fire Opal. Use these crystals in meditation, as jewelry, in crystal grids, in a sacred space, or keep them with you throughout the day. For more on how to cleanse, program, and use crystals, you can read my post on all things crystal related here. And for more on chakra healing crystals, click here.

    What is the Root Chakra?

    Located at the base of your spine, the root chakra is your body’s energy center for stability, safety, strength, security, groundedness, and inner peace. Your root chakra acts as your foundation. This is where you build your strength, power, and steadiness so that the flow of energy can easily move freely throughout your entire body.

    A good metaphor is to think of your root chakra like the roots of a tree. With strong roots, you’ll remain stable, firm, and supported, no matter which way the wind blows. And that’s truly what your root chakra does for you; with an open and balanced root chakra, you’ll remain grounded, centered, and calm, no matter what’s going on in your external world.

    Does this mean everything’s perfect all the time? Absolutely not. A balanced root chakra signifies that you feel firm in your place in life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have hopes and dreams for something more. However, because you feel so solid and steady, you’re not desperate or distressed as you wait for your dreams to manifest. Rather, you’re able to let go, trust, and ground yourself to the present moment, knowing that all is truly going to be okay.

    In this post, we’ll dive deep into root chakra healing and discuss 14 powerful practices for opening, balancing, and healing the root chakra. First, here are some of the key attributes of the root chakra:

    • Sanskrit Name: Muladhara (Mula: “root”; Adhara: “support” or “base”)
    • Location: Base of spine
    • Color: Red
    • Body Parts: Legs, Colon, Kidneys, Prostate, Bladder, Tailbone
    • Symbol: Four-petaled lotus with a square in the middle
    • Element: Earth
    • Mantra: LAM
    • Affirmation: I am
    • Balanced Attributes: Secure, Grounded, Strong, Centered, Stable, Steady, Safe, Peaceful, Supported, All Basic Needs Are Met
    • Imbalanced Attributes: Insecure, Anxious, Depressed, Scattered, Disconnected, Restless, Fearful, Cynical, Neglected, Worried
    • Fundamental Need: Survival

    Root Chakra Healing

    Even though each of your body’s energy centers has its own distinct role, it’s important to remember that all of your chakras, along with your life force (prana) and energy channels (nadis) act as one whole system. When one is blocked, it affects the rest of your chakra system, causing other energy centers to become underactive or overactive.

    That’s why root chakra healing is one of the most profound self-care practices you can do for your mind, body, and spirit. As your foundation, it’s important to maintain an open and balanced root chakra in order to keep your entire chakra system in balance. I like to think of it like this: your root chakra represents your basic needs, like warmth, rest, and security. If one of these basic needs isn’t being met, it would be hard to to cultivate a deeper relationship with your other chakras and feelings of creativity, passion, love, and intuition.

    But when you take the time to create a solid and stable foundation, you give these other aspects of your being a chance to thrive.

    Below, you’ll find 14 powerful root chakra healing practices to open, balance, and activate this important energy center. You can use these practices as part of your daily routine, or pick some to do when you’re feeling imbalanced and misaligned. I’ve also linked to several other posts that provide further understanding into the healing practices on this list.

    The root chakra acts as your foundation, and at your most basic level, before anything else, you have physiological and safety needs that need to be met in order to have a solid and stable foundation. These needs include food, water, warmth, rest, security, and safety. While the rest of the practices on this list are powerful on their own, nothing can bring you long-term healing if your basic needs aren’t being met.

    Unfortunately, depending on your life situation, this isn’t always easy. What do you do if food isn’t always readily available? What if you don’t feel safe and secure in your environment? What if your busy schedule doesn’t allow for rest? There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer here. So this is the best advice I can give you: don’t be afraid to ask for and accept help from others.

    And also don’t be afraid to ask for help from the Universe. For most of my life, I wasn’t someone who would talk to a higher power. It wasn’t until recent years that I began sitting down and handing over my worries to the Universe. I don’t say this to make you feel good; I say this because it’s my authentic truth: every single time I’ve actually paused and spoken to the Universe, my requests have always been answered. Sometimes, in minutes. Sometimes, hours. Sometimes, days. But never, ever am I ignored.

    Meditation

    Meditation is a powerful practice for healing all of your chakras, but there’s something especially powerful when it comes to root chakra healing. Meditating in the morning can be especially profound because it allows you to get grounded, centered, and stable as you start your day. Use meditation to connect with your foundation and to breathe calm, strength, and peace into every cell of your body.

    A simple breathing meditation can be effective in root chakra healing. You might also choose to connect with your root chakra by envisioning it as a bright red glowing orb at the base of your spine. As you breathe in, see the orb getting bigger. As you breathe out, see it growing brighter. You can also recite some grounding affirmations as you do this (see below).

    Grounding Affirmations

    The use of positive affirmations can be a powerful healing practice that supports your total well-being: mind, body, and spirit. For root chakra healing, focus on affirmations specifically dedicated to helping you feel grounded, stable, secure, calm, strong, peaceful, and centered. You can recite affirmations as you wake up in the morning, during meditation, as you commute to work, in your journal, as you wind down for the evening, and any time you need to take a step back and allow a wave of calm to wash over you.

    I’ve written some of my favorite root chakra affirmations below. Also be sure to check out my post, 35 Root Chakra Affirmations to Remain Strong, Steady, and Grounded.

    • I am safe and secure.
    • I am rooted in this present moment.
    • I am strong, steady, and grounded.
    • I have access to all the resources I need to survive and thrive.
    • I am equipped with all the tools I need to succeed.
    • Everything I need comes to me at exactly the right place and time.
    • I vibrate powerful, abundant, peaceful energy and attract this same energy in return.
    • Deep inner peace is my natural state.
    • Even when the world around me feels chaotic, I remain rooted firmly to the ground.
    • All my needs are always met.
    • I have everything I need.

    Connect to the Earth

    The root chakra is associated with the earth, and one of the most powerful healing activities you can perform is to immerse yourself in nature and let your bare feet touch the ground. You might also find a quiet spot to sit outside where you can journal, meditate, or just simply be. If you’re a gardener, you might choose to go outside and work in your garden, allowing your bare hands to dig into the earth. Nature is one of the greatest healers in the universe. When you take the time to connect with the earth, you connect with your roots, your foundation, and the truest, most authentic part of you.

    Breathing Exercises

    It isn’t always possible to stop what you’re doing to meditate in the middle of the day, but a breathing exercise is a more than suitable replacement that can help you to regain your feelings of calm, balance, and inner peace. Alternative nostril breathing is one of my favorite breathing practices, as this simple yet profound practice is known to calm the mind, reduce anxiety and stress, and promote overall well-being.

    Here’s another simple breathing exercise to help you feel centered and grounded:

    Inhale deeply to a count of four. Pause for a brief moment when you reach the end of your breath. Then exhale for a count of five. Pause at the end of your exhale. Then repeat the cycle. Do this as many times as needed to calm your mind and ground you to the present moment.

    Gratitude

    As you go about your day, notice all the things that contribute to your open and balanced root chakra. These things might include the locks on your doors that keep you safe; the money in your bank account; the food in your kitchen; the blankets that keep you warm; your strong, healthy body; access to clean water; and more. As you notice everything in your life that allows you to have a solid foundation, say a little thank you for each thing. These can often be the things we take for granted, so acknowledging all the positive aspects of your life with sincere appreciation can be a powerful reminder of your abundance.

    And don’t forget to express gratitude for your own inner qualities and talents. For instance, you might express gratitude for your ability to stay grounded and calm in all situations. You can also express gratitude for your inner strength and resilience. All of these things contribute to a balanced, open, and healed root chakra.

    Journaling

    Journaling is a profound practice to get in touch with your inner self, gently probe your thoughts and beliefs, explore your feelings, and connect with your body’s energy centers. For journaling specifically focused on root chakra healing, you can take a variety of approaches. You can center your practice on writing root chakra affirmations, do the gratitude practice in the section above in written form, or answer journal prompts that pertain to the root chakra. For root chakra journal prompts, check out my post, 30 Journal Prompts to Open and Heal the Root Chakra.

    When you sit down to journal, first set the intention to connect with your root chakra. Seal this intention with a few deep, grounding breaths. Choose to write with honesty and authenticity, and release any judgment or self-criticism that may come up. It’s important that you make this time a judgment-free zone. The path to healing is paved in radical honesty and acceptance.

    Visualization

    Visualization exercises can be beneficial for root chakra healing in a number of ways. One way to visualize is to follow the practice outlined in the Meditation section: connect with your root chakra by visualizing a bright red glowing orb at the base of your spine. As you breathe in, see the orb getting bigger. As you breathe out, see it growing brighter.

    You can also practice visualization by envisioning your highest self with an open and balanced root chakra. What does a day in your life look like when your root chakra is completely balanced? How do you feel? How do you carry yourself? Visualize some unexpected obstacles appearing during your day, and see yourself reacting to these obstacles with a sense of calm, stability, and steadiness. After your visualization, see if you can align with that balanced and centered version of yourself as you continue through your day.

    Yoga

    Almost any well-rounded yoga practice will support total body chakra healing, as yoga supports the free flow of energy (prana) throughout your body and can clear any blockages that may exist in your energy channels (nadis). Approach your yoga practice with an open and authentic heart.

    For root chakra healing poses (asanas), check out the list below. During your practice, focus on connecting with your root chakra. Breathe into that spot at the base of your spine, and when your feet are on the floor, focus on setting up a strong and stable foundation for your body (as well as connecting to the earth).

    • Mountain Pose
    • Downward Dog
    • Tree Pose
    • Lunge Pose
    • Warrior II

    Aromatherapy

    Sense of smell can be one of the most underutilized senses for restoring balance to your internal energy, as scent has the ability to both soothe and revitalize. For root chakra healing, use earth-scented essential oils, such as Cedarwood, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Basil, Patchouli, Black Pepper, Geranium. For more information on how to use essential oils to heal the chakras, check out my post, A Guide to Essential Oils for Chakra Healing.

    Color Therapy

    Color therapy is the act of immersing yourself in the color associated with that chakra. For root chakra healing, this means immersing yourself in all things red. For instance, you can eat red food, wear red clothes, light red candles, write with red pen, and surround your space with red items. I often hear the question, “Does color therapy really work?” I wholeheartedly believe your success with color therapy is entirely tied to your intentions and belief. When you approach this practice, first set the intention to connect with your root chakra. You might decide that every time you see a certain red item, you’ll recite a grounding root chakra affirmation. You might also spend some time visualizing a bright red orb at the base of your spine. At the heart of it, don’t simply surround yourself with the color red just for the sake of it; do so with intention. Decide that you are going to cultivate a sense of groundedness, stability, and strength throughout your day.

    I also like to combine color therapy with other root chakra healing practices, such as aromatherapy and journaling.

    Food

    While we often think of food as affecting our physical selves, it also profoundly affects our mental, emotional, and spiritual selves as well. Just as eating too much junk food can be linked to anxiety, stress, and negative overall well-being, eating the right types of food can help you to feel calm, stable, and secure.

    For root chakra healing foods, focus on root vegetables such as sweet potatoes and carrots. You might also choose red fruits such as apples, cherries, and strawberries. Finally, as your root chakra is associated with strength, make sure you get in enough protein, which you can find in beans and nut butters.

    Crystals & Gemstones

    Each chakra has powerful crystals associated with it, and these crystals can be used in various ways to balance and heal the energy within. For root chakra healing, use grounding crystals such as Hematite, Obsidian, Onyx, and Red Jasper. (You can find a list of grounding crystals and stones here.)

    So how exactly do you use crystals for root chakra healing? After cleansing and programming your crystals, you can meditate with them, wear crystals as jewelry, keep them in your pocket throughout the day, create crystal grids, or keep them in a prominent spot nearby where you can easily see them. Whenever you see or hold your chosen crystal, set the intention to ground yourself to the present moment and feel a sense of security and stability, no matter what’s happening in your external world. You might also choose to recite a root chakra affirmation, such as “I am grounded,” or “All my needs are always met.”

    Here’s a few more posts to help you get started with using crystals and gemstones to heal the chakras:

    Connect to Your Highest Self

    What does this mean? Who is your highest self?

    Your highest self is your truest, most authentic self. This part of you is untouched by external circumstances, appearances, and experiences. It is eternal and unchanging. This essence exists beyond your body and physical appearances.

    If you stripped everything else away, this part of you would remain: the real and true you.

    Your highest self is also the person you are when all of your chakras are open and balanced and energy is flowing freely throughout your body. And this all starts with your foundation: your root chakra.

    One of the most powerful chakra healing practices you can do is to spend a day walking in the shoes of your highest, most authentic self. For root chakra healing, set the intention to walk through a day as your highest self with an open, healed, and balanced root chakra. Start the day feeling grounded, secure, stable, strong, and supported. Keep this version of you in mind as you interact with others and also in the way you talk to yourself. Anytime you find yourself straying from your highest self, simply choose to realign.

    It may help to first journal about your highest self so you have a clear picture of who that person is before you start your day. No matter what, remember to refrain from self-criticism and judgment, and have compassion and love for all parts of you. Let this experience serve your highest good and support your growth.

    50 Meditation Affirmations to Feel Grounded & Secure

    How to Use Meditation Affirmations

    An affirmation is any statement you make about yourself and/or the world that you affirm to be true. Positive affirmations, specifically, are present-tense statements that are designed to uplift and encourage while boosting self-belief and supporting your overall well-being.

    If you meditate regularly, you may already incorporate affirmations in your meditation in some capacity. When I first started meditating, I solely focused on my breathing during meditations. It wasn’t until I started listening to guided meditations that I began incorporating affirmations, as well as other practices such as visualization, in my daily meditations.

    So what exactly are meditation affirmations, and how do you use them?

    Truly, a meditation affirmation can be anything. For instance, if you want to connect with your creativity, you might recite affirmations for creativity during your meditation. Or if you want to create more prosperity in your life, you can use affirmations to manifest abundance.

    Personally, when I think about meditation affirmations, I tend to think about affirmations that invite a sense of calm, stability, and inner peace into my world. I like to use meditation affirmations that help me to feel centered and grounded, no matter what’s going on in my external world.

    There are no hard rules for using meditation affirmations. You can incorporate them as a small part of your meditation, or you can center your entire meditation around using calming and/or empowering affirmations. It’s also okay to say your affirmations either in your head, at a whisper, or aloud; it just depends on what feels most comfortable for you.

    Below are 50 meditation affirmations to help you feel grounded, peaceful, and secure. Most of these affirmations are fairly short and easy to remember, so you can choose to memorize the ones that resonate most or keep a list of affirmations nearby during your meditation. You can also choose to focus on just one affirmation during your meditation or cycle through several at a time. Do what feels most comfortable and best supports your mind, body, and spirit.

    Releasing Doubt, Welcoming Faith

    Faith is a word that can mean many things to many people.

    For some, faith has a deeply spiritual connotation and is rooted in the belief in a higher power. Faith is often a word used to describe one’s religious beliefs. However, the word faith goes far beyond a person’s religion.

    To keep the faith means to trust that everything will work out, even when it doesn’t always feel like it.

    And to walk forward in faith means to trust your journey, even if you can’t see the entire path in front of you.

    Your own definition of faith is likely deeply personal to you. For me, faith means trusting the universe. I have faith that at all times, I am exactly where I need to be, and I believe that all experiences are meant to serve my growth. I have faith in myself to create the life of my dreams, and this faith comes from knowing that I am eternally connected to an infinite source of light and love. I believe the light of the universe lives within me (and you, and everyone else). This light connects everything and everyone; it is perfect, infinite, and knows only love.

    So what is faith? That’s for you to define. To help, here are a few quotes about faith and its extraordinary power:

    • Helen Keller: “Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.”
    • Voltaire: “Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.”
    • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
    • Wayne Dyer:You’ll see it when you believe it.

    Below, discover 40 beautiful affirmations for faith, hope, and trust. Let these affirmations be an anchor on days when you’re feeling unsteady, ungrounded, and/or uncertain in your current life experiences.

    40 Positive Affirmations for Overcoming Challenges

    Facing Challenges and Adversity

    I use positive affirmations often throughout my daily life, but I’ve found that the times I’ve often needed them the most have been when I’ve been most reluctant to use them. Throughout my journey of cultivating unconditional self-love, I’ve faced a lot of hardships, obstacles, and challenges. Early on, it was tough for me to find positive words during these times. I’d often feel frustrated over what I perceived to be a lack of progress or success.

    What I learned was that I couldn’t just use positive affirmations; I had to truly feel them in my bones. So when I woke up telling myself, “I have the tools I need to handle anything that comes my way today,” I needed to truly believe it. And beyond that: I had to live it.

    That meant when challenges presented themselves in my daily life, I couldn’t just resort to feeling annoyance or frustration. I had to go back to the empowering words I had recited in my affirmations and know in my heart that I can handle this.

    And then, I took it a step further. Because I realized it wasn’t just about “handling” or “getting through” obstacles and roadblocks. And it wasn’t even just about knowing I had the ability to overcome challenges.

    It was about believing that these hard times served some kind of purpose and learning the lessons that they offered. I discovered there was beauty to be found in the moments when things didn’t go my way. And I also learned to trust that if things weren’t working out the way I wanted them to, it was often because something better was coming.

    To be clear, this doesn’t mean you should engage in toxic positivity. You don’t have to force yourself to pretend that the hardships don’t sometimes hurt. One of the most profound experiences I’ve encountered over the last several years was when I was going through a rough patch, and I found myself crying daily, feeling sad and lost and uncertain about my future. I allowed myself to feel all of that pain, but even in the sadness, I still had deep trust that everything would work out for me. I knew in my heart that I would become stronger for this experience. I gave myself permission to explore the depth of my emotions fully while still knowing that the universe would support me and have my back no matter what.

    After walking through that experience with faith and grace, I became a little less afraid of future challenges and roadblocks. I knew that in some way, every experience I encountered was a gift, no matter how heavy the world sometimes felt.

    I believe we’re all capable of handling so much more than we realize. You are so much stronger and braver and more powerful than you know. You have the ability to face any obstacle, and you also have the ability to step back and discover how your greatest challenges can often be your greatest gifts.

    Below are 40 positive affirmations for overcoming challenges, facing adversity, and walking through hard times with dignity and grace. I hope these affirmations remind you that you are strong, capable, and resilient, and that you are capable of meeting all challenges with faith, courage, and undeniable resilience.

    And for some tips on how to get the most out of positive affirmations, be sure to check out my post, How to Use Affirmations (So They Actually Work).

    Paulo Coelho

    Time and time again, when I’m feeling sad, lost, or misaligned, I find myself returning to Paulo Coelho’s brilliant words, which often feel like a cool drink of water on a hot summer day. The first time I heard his quote, “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it,” I felt like the weight of the world was gently lifted off my shoulders, and I knew in my heart that these words were true: that the universe was always supporting me, even when I couldn’t see it.

    His quote, “Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream,” helped me to release my worries and anxiety about stepping into the life of my dreams. I realized that I was only suffering by holding myself back, but when I chose to align my life with the dreams that were placed in my heart, there was no more room for suffering. Only hope. Only passion. Only love.

    And one that I’ve recently been coming back to over and over again is this: “You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.” I love routine and order, and I tend to approach all of my days in the same way. And while there isn’t anything inherently wrong with this, I’ve realized that I can still open my eyes and choose to view each day as a miracle. That there’s always magic to be found if you simply choose to look for it.

    All of these themes and more can be found in Coelho’s novel The Alchemist, a book I continually come back to and immerse myself in like a warm blanket on a cold day, filling me with light and warmth and hope.

    Below, I’ve compiled 22 of my favorite Paulo Coelho quotes for inspiration, joy, hope, and following your dreams. I’ve also made images for each of these quotes, so feel free to choose your favorites and save them to your phone, tablet, laptop – anywhere you can come back to them whenever you need them.

    I hope these quotes bring you as much hope and inspiration as they’ve brought me.

    Cultivating Happiness

    When I turned five years old, I remember blowing out the candles on my birthday cake and making a wish for limitless candy that I could eat whenever I wanted. M&M’s were my favorite, but I wasn’t super picky: chocolate candy, fruity candy, hard candies and lollipops . . . I’d take it all.

    Okay, maybe not all. Black licorice and spicy candies were a hard pass.

    As the next couple years passed by, I’d continue to make wishes for new toys, CDs, and my own stereo so I could lock myself in my room and jam out to Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys without interruptions.

    I don’t remember when the transition happened, but at some point, a realization had occurred to me. Toys, CDs, and limitless candy were all cool, but what if there was a way that I could have all of that and more?

    What if there was one word that could give me everything I had ever wanted?

    Happiness.

    If I wished for happiness, I thought, that meant that I’d get everything I wanted without there being a catch. Because if I was happy, that meant my family and friends were healthy and happy as well. (Because I knew that if they weren’t happy, I wouldn’t be, either.) So by wishing for happiness, I wasn’t just wishing for happiness just for myself but for everyone I loved.

    And even at this young age, I knew that wishing for happiness meant that I might not get toys and limitless candy, because maybe those things wouldn’t make me truly happy. So I trusted that everything that would make me happy would come to me.

    My concept of happiness was simple when I was a sweet ten-year-old who wanted nothing more than to ride bikes and read books and jump on my best friend’s trampoline. After I graduated high school and into college, I spend a lot of time relearning what happiness truly meant, often overcomplicating it and sometimes believing it would always be just out of reach.

    I’ve come full circle since then, once again simplifying my definition of happiness, but I’ve also learned something that I didn’t quite understand as a young girl.

    My happiness never came from all the candy or toys or CDs or any of the things I was given. Sure, those things brought me fleeting moments of joy, but lasting happiness didn’t come from things.

    Lasting happiness came from within.

    I’ve learned that happiness comes when I make happiness a priority, and even more importantly, happiness comes when I choose it.

    And what I’ve discovered most of all is that happiness isn’t a result of getting everything I want; happiness comes when I feel grateful for everything I already have. When I view my life from a perspective of appreciation and abundance rather than scarcity and lack, happiness and joy flow effortlessly into my inner and outer worlds.

    Below, you’ll find 45 positive affirmations for happiness and joy. These affirmations are designed to help you cultivate a mindset of true joy and appreciation, allowing you to feel grateful for all that you have in this moment. They’re also meant to remind you that you are worthy and deserving of happiness right now. Happiness is your birthright, and you were created to live a life of pure joy and abundance.

    Use these affirmations to serve and support your mind, body, and spirit. And for some tips on how to get the most out of affirmations, be sure to check out my post, How to Use Affirmations (So They Actually Work).

    The 12 Laws of Karma Explained (A Complete Guide)

    In this post, discover the true meaning of karma, plus learn what the 12 Laws of Karma are and how you can use them to create a life of genuine joy, purpose, passion, and fulfillment.

    12 laws of karma

    What is Karma?

    What do you think of when you heard the word karma?

    The saying “what goes around comes around” may come to mind. Often, this is said with a negative connotation. When you see or hear about somebody who lies, steals, or treats another with unkindness, you may say, “Karma will come back around and catch up with them.”

    While this is one aspect of karma, and the central idea in the First Law of Karma (The Great Law), there is more to the concept of karma than most believe.

    In Sanskrit, the word karma means “action.” When I have a good thought or do a good deed, this goodness has positive effects and ultimately comes back to me. When I have a bad thought or do something that I know is harmful, the negative effects will ultimately come back to me as well. Good actions beget more goodness; bad actions beget more badness.

    But it’s not just about good and bad. It’s about every action having meaning; everything we do and say contributes to the overall whole. Everything is connected. Every action matters.

    And often, it’s about not labeling actions and consequences as good or bad at all. When you believe something bad is happening to you, it may be time to take a step back and evaluate your life with gentle and non-judgmental awareness. What lessons might the universe be trying to teach you? Are you blaming others for what happens in your life, or are you able to take personal responsibility?

    Rather than saying, “This bad thing is always happening to me,” you have the opportunity to turn it around and ask, “What can I learn from this experience?”

    How to Use the 12 Laws of Karma

    You get to decide your personal relationship with these laws and how they may play a role in your life.

    But I do want to offer this advice:

    Don’t view these laws as rules that are meant to tie you down or fit you into a box. The word “law” may have a negative connotation for some, as you may view it as an unbending rule that prevents you from experiencing true freedom.

    But the opposite is true here.

    The 12 Laws of Karma are not meant to limit or constrict you; through their very nature, they’re meant to lead you to a life of joy, freedom, passion, purpose, and love. These laws are not the rules you were forced to memorize and obey in school, leaving you to free trapped or even chained to a set of laws you never even agreed to.

    These laws are designed to show you the road map to a beautiful and fulfilling life. They help you to live in the present moment and find joy in this moment right now, no matter what your external world may look like. And they show you the way to creating meaningful change and living the life you’ve always desired: the beautiful and abundant life of your dreams.

    So as you read through the 12 Laws of Karma, allow yourself to gently explore them with an open heart, receiving them as a loving gift from the universe. These laws are not meant to hinder you but rather to show you the path to true freedom and to a life filled with love, fulfillment, and abundance.

    The 12 Laws of Karma

    The Great Law

    The Great Law, also known as The Law of Cause and Effect, fits what most of us traditionally think of when we hear the word karma. Anyone familiar with manifestation and the Law of Attraction will also be familiar with the concepts presented in this law. The foundation of this law is the idea that whatever we put out into the world is what we get back. While you may think of this in terms of actions (i.e. if you see someone drop their wallet and pick it up to give back to them, this kindness will come back to you), it’s also important to view it in terms of energy.

    The energy you put out into the world is what comes back to you, whether you’re conscious of it or not.

    Say you wake up every morning feeling frustrated and annoyed that you have to go to work again today. The shower water is never hot enough, the other cars on your commute are always driving too slow, and everyone else seems to be getting raises and promotions but not you. You have a scarcity mindset; no matter how much you have, it’ll never be enough. Because of this, you emit negative energy into the universe. And even though you don’t want to receive more negativity, that’s what you keep getting: more scarcity, more lacking, more lukewarm showers and slow commutes.

    But what if you changed your perspective? What if you stepped into the shower feeling grateful for the running water that keeps you clean? What if you focus on the fact that you have reliable transportation to get you to work? What if every time one of your coworkers got a raise or promotion, you cheered them on? Things change once you start viewing your world from the perspective of gratitude and appreciation; you emit positivity into the world, and thus, you receive more positive energy in return.

    Do you want abundance in your life? Become the embodiment of abundance. Do you want love? Start with showing yourself unconditional love, then share that love with the world around you. If you want something, become the embodiment of that thing, then watch as more of it flows into your life in beautiful and miraculous ways.

    The Law of Creation

    The first law flows effortlessly into this second law, and it’s likely you’ll quickly see how all of these laws are intertwined. The Law of Creation states that you must take action to create the life you desire. You are a powerful creator, and you have the power to co-create your life along with the universe. But too often, we sit back, hoping things will work out but not actively doing anything about it. You must become an active participant in your story. This doesn’t mean trying to control outcomes, forcing things to happen, or stubbornly staying on a path that doesn’t truly feel right for you.

    Rather, it goes back to the idea of putting out the energy you want to receive. And it also means taking inspired action when your inner knowing leads you in a certain direction. If you want to create abundance, first become abundance. Then, when you feel that nudge to take action, do so in a state of effortless flow. This is what co-creating is: setting an intention, telling the universe what you want, become the embodiment of what you want, and trusting the universe to lead you where you’re meant to go.

    The Law of Humility

    Are you able to accept responsibility for your past and current reality? For instance, let’s go back to the “hate your job” scenario. Let’s say that you’re in a position you don’t enjoy, and you haven’t received the promotion or raise you think you deserve. You enter the office with a bad attitude and leave with an even worse one. Do you blame your boss or your coworkers for your unhappiness? Is there someone else a few cubicles away who seems to be getting all of the rewards you want, and you blame his or her success for your failure?

    The Law of Humility is all about accepting that you have created your current reality through actions, choices, and the energy you’ve emitted. It’s about not blaming others for everything that’s seemingly going wrong in your life but taking responsibility for your current place in life. In order to change something, you must first accept it. So in order to change the circumstances of the job you don’t like, you must accept the role you’ve played in creating your current experience; through acceptance, you remove your blinders, embrace the truth, and are able to see what must change in order to create a life that you love.

    The Law of Growth

    Do you consider yourself a fixer? Do you good-intentionally try to change the people in your life in order to help them? When things are going badly, do you first try to change your external world (places, people, things) before looking internally?

    The Law of Growth says that there is only one thing you truly have control over: yourself. If you want to make a positive mark on the world, don’t start with what you can do externally; start with what you can do internally. To change the world, start with changing yourself. Not “becoming a different person” type of change. Rather, seek the kind of change that comes from true growth.

    This also means that you may have to accept that you can’t change everything or everyone, even if you believe it would be in their highest good. Trust that if you focus on your own growth and your own path, you’ll illuminate the way for others. But it has to be their choice.

    The Law of Responsibility

    The Law of Responsibility links closely to the Law of Humility (and, in fact, all the laws I’ve discussed above).

    Can you take responsibility for your current life circumstances, good and bad?

    The Law of Responsibility states that rather than looking for external reasons and excuses for why something might be wrong in your life, you must look internally. Because it doesn’t start out there; it starts in here. In me. In you. In all of us.

    It’s important to truly evaluate your life from a place of non-judgmental, conscious awareness. What’s going right? What’s going wrong? Now, instead of looking outward for reasons why something might be going right or wrong, look inward. Know that this isn’t about judging or criticizing yourself. (In fact, I encourage you not to judge, berate, or criticize yourself.) It’s about taking responsibility for the choices you make, whether that be an action you’ve chosen to take or an energy you’ve chosen to emit.

    The Law of Connection

    The Law of Connection states that everything in the universe, and everything in your life, is connected; your past, present, and future are all connected. No action or decision is insignificant because every action effects who you become. Your actions yesterday affect the person you are today, and your actions today affect the person you are tomorrow.

    When I think of the Law of Connection, I like to think of the affirmation, “Every small step I take makes a big difference.”

    I can use this website itself as an example. There are a lot of daily actions I take to maintain this website. There are also certain things I had to do only once or twice, like installing a certain plugin or uploading a picture for my author bio. I write and edit multiple blog posts a week and create dozens of Pinterest pins for my blog posts. I’ve changed the overall layout of the site several times, which is a task that can take a lot of time depending on the extent of my changes.

    So is writing a blog post more important than installing a plugin? Is changing the layout more important than uploading an author bio picture?

    According to the Law of Connection, no. Each step leads to the next step, and no step is more important than the other because they’re all connected. This is true for everything in our lives.

    And this is true in terms of yourself, as well. You may think of some of your past days as being more important and consequential than others, but every single day you’ve experienced has created the person you are today. Everything is connected. Everything is important. Your past, present, and future are all intertwined and deeply connected to one another.

    The Law of Focus

    The Law of Focus states that you should focus on one thing at a time, and if your focus is on spiritual values, you will not have space in your life to focus on lesser feelings such as greed, jealousy, and anger.

    What are spiritual values? They’re feelings and beliefs stemmed in love, peace, compassion, trust, and kindness: positive thoughts and emotions that welcome more of these positive feelings into your world. Ultimately, you decide your highest spiritual values and what feels true and right for you.

    When you focus on feelings that allow you to be spiritually aligned, you have no room in your mind or heart for negative energy that doesn’t serve your mind, body, or spirit.

    The Law of Giving & Hospitality

    What do you believe in? What do you want most for the world? Do you have a vision of a world that is filled with peace and love? Do you believe in selfless kindness and generosity? Do you believe in connection over division and compassion over judgment?

    This law is essentially the practice what you preach law. The Law of Giving & Hospitality calls on you to demonstrate what you believe in and become the embodiment of your genuine desires for this world.

    If you envision a world filled with peace and love, give peace and love to yourself and others.

    If you believe in selfless kindness and generosity, be selflessly kind and generous to all.

    If you want to see a world connected in compassion and love, give this love and compassion and become connected to all.

    Let your actions reflect your deepest and truest beliefs. If you want to see change in the world, become the change by giving what you seek.

    The Law of Here and Now

    The only thing that truly exists is this moment right now. The past is gone, and the future is not here. True inner peace comes from embracing the present moment.

    The Law of Here and Now states that true peace of mind comes from living in the present moment, and you cannot embrace the present moment if you’re always looking back into the past or ahead into the future. Reliving the past prevents you from engaging with your life just as it is right now. And when you’re constantly focusing on the old, you’re unable to create the new.

    When you find yourself replaying events of the past or worrying about the future, gently bring yourself back to the present moment. Use all of your senses to discover the world that exists right now. You might have a grounding mantra that helps, such as “In this moment, I have everything I need.”

    The Law of Change

    Have you ever heard the phrase “history repeats itself”? That concept is at the core of the Law of Change, which states that history will continue to repeat itself until you’ve learned the lessons you’re meant to learn and have taken actionable steps to change the pattern.

    You might see this play out in all different parts of your life: relationships, career, and your own personal relationship with yourself. As an example, after I graduated college, I immediately took an office job at a local clinic because it felt like the responsible thing to do. It didn’t take long for me to realize I felt unhappy and unfulfilled in that position, so I took a new office job. Not long after, I experienced these same feelings, so I found a new office job. And for the next few years, I hopped from one office job to the next, always believing that maybe the next one would be the right fit. I kept repeating the pattern until I finally accepted that I wasn’t following my true calling. The next step was hard, because it required me to take a leap of faith with no assurances that anything would work out.

    But you know what happened?

    I found true joy, purpose, and fulfillment when I finally followed my purpose and passion. I grew, and I’m still growing every single day.

    Change can be scary sometimes, but when you embrace change and start on a new path, you open yourself to experiencing genuine joy, fulfillment, and growth.

    The Law of Patience and Reward

    The Law of Patience and Reward is rooted in the belief that consistency, patience, and continuing to show up day after day, even when you don’t see the rewards today, will bring true joy, peace, and fulfillment.

    I think of this as the law of no overnight successes.

    To help myself in moments when I begin to feel impatient, I think back to my marathon training program. When I signed up for my first marathon, I knew I wouldn’t be able to suddenly run 26.2 miles overnight. So I created a training program in which I ran 4 days a week with 3 rest days. Each week, over the course of 14 weeks, I slightly increased my long runs and overall mileage by a mile or two. On the day of the marathon, I trusted that my consistency, effort, and patience in the process would pay off. And you know what? It did. Four hours and thirty-two minutes later, I crossed the finish line, my first full marathon complete.

    Now, this can be a little different from other scenarios that require consistency and patience. While I had an exact date to work toward for my marathon, you might be working on a goal in which you have no idea when you’ll see the rewards of your effort. And that’s okay. Just know that showing up for yourself day after day and being consistent in your efforts is always worth it.

    Meanwhile, don’t wait for all of your dreams to manifest in your reality before you allow yourself to experience true joy. Feel joyful now knowing that you are on the path, aligned with your purpose and passion, and exactly where you’re meant to be in this moment.

    The Law of Significance and Inspiration

    You matter. Your voice matters. Your presence matters. You were born with specific goals and talents that only you possess. Only you have lived your unique experiences. And that dream that’s in your heart? It’s there for a reason.

    The Law of Significance and Inspiration states that every single one of us contributes to the greater whole. We all play a part in contributing to the highest good of the world.

    And what you’re doing? It matters. When you put your whole heart into something and contribute your gifts and talents with wholehearted love, you are creating a ripple effect that you probably can’t even see. You’re lifting up others and inspiring the whole. And the more positive energy and loving intentions you put into your contribution, the more you’re not only contributing to the highest good for all, but to yourself as well. You will get back all of this positive energy in ways you can’t even imagine.

    So know that everything you do matters. Your purpose and your gift matter.

    You matter. More than you know.
