Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 8 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Everything from herbs to some personal blogs. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

Individual Chakras & Chanting

The Root Chakra is particularly about connecting to the ground. Expressions like "Be on firm ground" and "Getting on your feet again" convey a good connection and an open Root chakra. When your Root chakra is closed too far, you may actually feel that your feet don't seem to really touch the ground. Chant 'LAM' if your energy is low, have financial struggles, have low self-esteem, if you suffer from adrenal fatigue & other stress-related ailments.

Opening up the Sacral Chakra......Put your hands in your lap, palms up, on top of each other. Left hand underneath, its palm touching the back of the fingers of the right hand. The tips of the thumbs touch gently. Concentrate on the Sacral chakra at the sacral bone (on the lower back). Chant the sound 'VAM' as that is the cleansing mantra for this one.

To help open the Solar Plexus or Navel Chakra....Put your hands before your stomach, slightly below your solar plexus. Let the fingers join at the tops, all pointing away from you. Cross the thumbs. It is important to straighten the fingers. This chakra is located on the spine, a bit above the level of the navel. Chant the sound 'RAM' and it can help you become more confident & self-assured.

To Help Open the Heart Chakra....Sit cross-legged or in a comfortable position. Let the tips of your index finger and thumb touch. Put your left hand on your left knee and your right hand in front of the lower part of your breast bone (so a bit above the solar plexus). Concentrate on the Heart chakra at the spine, level with the heart. Chant the sound 'YAM' to heal both the physical heart & the spiritual (emotional) heart center.

Unlocking that Throat Chakra! Stones to help speak your truth are...Blue lace agate or sodalite. Best color to wear....blue. It controls your throat, neck, teeth & ears. If this chakra is closed or not functioning correctly the symptoms can be: sore throat, whining, timid, guarded & unable to express yourself. Affirmation for this chakra....I live in my truth. I communicate my truth, I am the truth! Chanting mantra to help with this is 'HAM'.

Opening the Third Eye or Brow Chakra. Concentrate on the Third Eye chakra slightly above the point between the eyebrows. This chakra is said to be the seat of intuition & life's purpose. Chant the sound 'AUM'. This is particularly important to the cleansing and healing of your third eye. This chakra will open when it is time for you.

Lastly, the Crown Chakra. 'OM' is the most popular chant for this one...the connection to the divine. A closed crown chakra brings about feelings of insignificance & pointlessness, leading to a disconnect from spirit and an overly strong attachment to possessions, relationships and the physical world. Some find that silence is a more effective practice for opening the crown, but 'OM' may be used as well. chanting 'AH' represents a release. Think about taking a deep breath, then letting it go...'AH' is the sound of releasing & letting go.

Chakra mantras can help to clear your energy pathways so you can thrive, not just survive! This allows you to make the most of your physical life experience, creating positive physical, emotional, mental and spiritual change.
