Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. 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. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....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.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

Chakra Basic Information.....

Chakras are a part of an ancient belief system associated with yoga. Now the word chakra comes from the Sanskrit and means 'spinning wheel'. These swirling energy vortexes are situated along the spinal column and are located between the base of the spine and the crown of the head. These energy vortexes radiate out & they receive and transmit energy constantly. Our entire body vibrates at a basic frequency of approx. 8 cycles per second which is the same frequency as the basic electromagnetc field of Mother Earth. We are literally attuned to the earth. If all you experience is negativity, then that is what is transmitted into your body since the chakras transmit life force energies into our bodies.

In the human energy field….there are thousands of minor chakras, but the seven major chakras govern specific bodily functions. There are also chakras located below the feet and above the head. We also know about the thymus chakra... which is not one of the main seven chakras... but is located in the chest between the heart and throat chakras.

The first chakra is called the Base Chakra or the Root Chakra... and is located at the base of the spine. It governs survival, base instincts, the sex drive and physical life.

The 2nd chakra is the Sacral Chakra or the navel chakra... and is located just below the navel. It is associated with your emotions, sensuality, intimacy, sexuality and creativity.

The third chakra is Solar Plexus... and is named for the complex network of nerves in the stomach. It may also be called the Power chakra... as it is the area governing personal power.

The 4th chakra is called the Heart Chakra... and is located in the center of the chest near the heart. It is associated with love, compassion, unconditional love and happiness.

The Thymic or Higher Heart Chakra is called the Thymus Chakra... and is located in the upper chest, just above and to the right of the heart chakra... between the heart and throat chakras. This area is where intent originates, and the energy of this chakra connects the emotions of Divine love, compassion, truth and forgiveness with the area where language originates... encouraging you to speak from the heart.

The 5th chakra is called the Throat Chakra... and is located above the collar bone. It governs the area of the throat and the ears. And it’s associated with communication.

The 6th chakra is called the Third Eye... and is located in the forehead above the eyebrows. It governs the area of the pineal gland. The pineal gland has been believed since ancient times to be where 'second sight' or psychic sight was located. And it has been discovered that flouride calcifies the pineal gland.

The 7th chakra is the Crown Chakra and it is located at the crown of the head... right above the top of the head. It is associated with the pituitary gland, spirituality, intelligence and deep thought.

The Grounding Chakra is called the Earth Star Chakra... and is located below the feet. It governs the principle of ensuring that you are able to ground your excess energy into the earth.

The Eighth Chakra is called the soul star chakra... and is located above the crown chakra... a hand width above the head. Let’s all measure now cuz I know you are J It governs the ability to link the conscious mind with the Higher Self or soul. It is associated with spirituality, enlightenment and ascension.

There are certain musical notes/elements/colors/stones/shapes/planets/angels & more associated w/ each chakra. Even eating foods that are associated with certain chakras colors can help that chakra energetically. Each chakra also 'governs' certain glands/organs of the body.

So I’m going to name each chakra & then the colors/stones/shapes & angel that’s best associated with that chakra. You can meditate on the color & shape while using the stone & ask for that particular angel during your meditation. It’s impt as well to continually work to keep your chakras inline, cleansed & open…except for your crown chakra. Only when you are fully able to handle opening up this chakra should you even consider it…you could possibly be overwhelmed by emotions, grief, sadness and all that is associated w/ ego if you open up your crown chakra before your higher self is really ready. With that said….

Root chakra….color is black or red. Stone can be garnet, ruby, obsidian, bloodstone or hematite. Shape is a large cube. AA Michael is best one to call on for this one.

Sacral chakra….it’s color is bright orange. Stone is coral or carnelian. Shape is pyramid and the associated angel is Metatron.

Solar plexus -- color is yellow. The stone can be amber, topaz or citrine. It’s shape is a globe. The angel associated with it is AA Uriel.

Heart chakra -- the color is green to protect the heart or pink or gold for the heart itself. The stone is a rose quartz, diamond or peridot. It’s shape is the crescent moon. The angel is AA Raphael.

The throat chakra's color is blue. The stones you can use for it are turquoise, blue lace agate or aquamarine. It’s shape is an inverted pyramid which is suspended around the jaw & points down towards the heart. The angel associated w/ this one is AA Gabriel.

The brow chakra color is indigo which is a deep blue/purple color. The stones you can use for this one is sodalite, lapis lazuli, sapphire or tanzanite. It’s shape is a 5 pointed star. And the angel associated with it is Shekhinah…or better known as the feminine face of god.

And finally the crown chakra and it’s color is violet. The stone you can use for this one is an amethyst or alexandrite. It’s shape is a round skullcap. And the angelic presence associated w/ it is the christ light.

Now there are so many more qualities & attributes for each chakra but I won’t go into all those, but there are some affirmations for each one as well. You can say each one of these daily or however often you wish and these affirmations enhance the chakras & help with their energies. Anything positive, loving, kind, prayers, meditations can only make your chakras spin better & stay aligned & clean….so the affirmations are…..

Root Chakra: I affirm my right to the life I know I want. I accept myself as I am. I am greateful for the experiences of my life.

Sacral Chakra: I allow pleasure & goodness into my life. I know that I deserve goodness & joy.

Solar Plexus: I am worthy of a good life. I choose life, love & goodness.

Heart Chakra: I am love. Love is all that truly matters in life. Love restores my faith in life.

Throat Chakra: I speak my truth and honor my commitment to it. I express myself as honestly as I can. I listen to my inner truth.

Brow Chakra: My love of life reflects itself in all that I see & do. I acknowledge my worth & accept my goodness.

Crown Chakra: I acknowledge the presence of spirit working in my life. I release fear, doubt and pain as I accept that my life is blessed. I surrender my arrogance and ego to a higher power than myself.

To shorten it all down...you can take your right hand & hold it over each chakra while repeating a two-word affirmation for each one.
1st -- I am
2nd -- I feel
3rd -- I do
4th -- I love
5th -- I speak
6th -- I see
7th -- I understand

We should try & work on these as much as we can, because all this negativity in the world can dirty them up.
