Chakras

What are chakras?

Chakras are the concentrated energy centers of the body. Chakra is a Sunskirt term and it means “wheel” or “disk”, it is derived from the root word “cakra”. Chakras are spinning wheels of energy/light, they have the responsibility of taking in, incorporating and emanating energy to keep us to function properly.

When a chakra is not functioning properly or is blocked, an illness is more likely to occur. Our well-being on all levels can be affected: lack of energy, feeling of anger, feeling unbalanced …

How to strengthen and increase the flow of your chakra systems?

If we feel unbalanced, we need to work on our physical, emotional, spiritual and mental health to allow the flow of energy through our chakra systems to strengthen. Clearing out clutter in our lives physically and emotionally will help to bring back balance and enhances our wellbeing.

Our body is an energetic system through which the universes life force flows through. Our 7 chakras are a part of this energetic system, they connect you with the larger part of yourself, the universe and they hold the secrets to our unique self and soul. To visualize a chakra in the body, image a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. The invisible healing energy called PRANA, is vital life force, it keeps us healthy and alive.

This is one music I like to listen when I do my meditation.

Each chakra corresponds to massive nerve centers in the body, they contain bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional and spiritual state of being. Since everything is moving it is important that the chakras remain open and fluid to be in perfect alignment.

How to align the chakras

Awareness to which of your chakras are out of balance is key to aligning them. Our bodies are constantly between balanced and imbalanced. It is good to bring awareness to your body/mind and start understanding its signs and clues so that you can align your chakras.

For example, frequent constipation could indicate in a blockage to the first chakra. A recurring sore throat leaves clues to the firth chakra being blocked.

There are 7 main chakras:

1- Base or Root Chakra- Muladhara

Bija mantra (seed sound) is lam. Its natural colour is red, and is located resting at the base of the spine, in the tailbone. It is associated with the element of Earth, and its properties are related to survival, security and it anchors us to the earth. It represents our foundation. To keep this chakra healthy, exercises such as jogging or dancing are beneficial. Its message is “I exist”.

2- Sacral Chakra- Svadhistance

Bija mantra is vam. This chakras natural colour is orange, and is located in the lower abdomen. It is associated with the element of water. It is related to sense of abundance, wellbeing, sexuality and desire for pleasure. It also informs us how we relate to our emotions and other peoples emotions. Bellydancing, yoga and loving partnerships can enhance the function of this chakra. Live your passion, whatever it maybe. Its message is “I desire”.

  1. Solar Plexus Chakra- Manipura

Bija mantra is ram. Its natural colour is yellow, and is located in the upper abdomen in the stomach area. It is associated with the element of fire. It is related with power, and being in control. An overbearing solar plexus chakra (one not in balance with the other chakras) can result in obsessive compulsive control. When this chakra has a healthy flow it allows you to have control over your destiny, feel your power and accomplish your dreams. Whenever you felt butterflies or felt a pit in your stomach, thats the solar plexus chakra at work. Its message is “I control”.

  1. Heart chakra- Anahata

Bija mantra is yam. Its natural colour is green, and is located at the centre of the chest, just above the heart. It is associated with the element of air. It is related with love and compassion, joy and inner peace. Healthy relationships, pets, family and appreciation of beauty and nature enhances the health of this chakra. Let your hearts energy flow freely in and out. Be open to receiving love that is available to you, the free flowing love that is your birthright. This chakra connects the three bottom chakras (associated with maternity) with the top three ones (associated with spirituality). The message is “I love”.

  1. Throat Chakra- Vishuddha (the purifier)

Bija mantra is ham. Its natural colour is blue, and is located at the throat pit. It is associated with the element of expression and manifestation. It is related with authenticity, truthfulness, clarity influence, receptivity and peace. It is where you speak your truth to the world. It is a gateway and translator between the spiritual/unmanifest and physical/manifest aspect of our being. Singing, chanting and breathing exercises can enhance the health of this chakra. The message is “I express”.

  1. Third Eye Chakra- Ajne

Bija mantra is shan or om. Its natural colour is indigo, and is located in the space between the eyebrows. It is associated with the element light. It is related to insight, perception, intuition, awareness and guidance, discrimination and wisdom. Meditation and visualization exercises can assist the healthy flow of this chakra. Be open to your inner guidance, listen to your thoughts and they will assist you onto the right path. The third eye is the place of discrimination and final judgement, and its role in determining what is reality and what is illusion is crucial. Its message is “I am the witness”.

  1. The Crown Chakra- Sahasrara

Bija mantra is oh or sohem or ah. Its natural colour is violet or violet- white light, and is located at the very top of the head. It is associated with the element of cosmos- pure light and source of creation. It is related to inner and outer beauty, spiritual connection, union and the knowledge of being at one with all. Transcends into oneness, the gift is the transcendence of the individual self into true, mystical experience of unity and oneness. The messsage is “I am that I am”.

Hand and Foot which are linked with the CROWN chakra

Elbow and Knee which are linked with the BASE chakra

Groin and Clavicular which are linked with the BROW chakra

Shoulder and Navel which are linked with the THROAT chakra

Are You Putting Your Own Restriction

Your true age is determined by your mental attitude, not the years you have lived 😎

As you grow and develop, make sure your experience is directed toward the acquisition of wisdom, not the acceptance of cynicism.😉
You are putting your own restriction! Keep an open mind and train your mind to identify and absorb information that others often miss because they think they are unable to do it. You are on the right track and don’t listen to the negative people around you 😘

Lavender, one of the most popular essential oils in the world

The most popular one is Lavandula augustifolia, I was used to have a lot of  plants when I was in France and I still take some from my parents garden, dry the flower, put it in little pouch and then in my wardrobe to have a nice smell.  Lavender is not only a plant with fresh and floral scent but has many benefits for our health and skin care.

Little History :

  • Lavender has been discovered over 2,500 Years ago. The Egyptian used it for mummification and as a perfume
  • The Romans used the lavender oil for bathing, cooking and purifying the air. It got the name from the roman “lavare” which means laver (in french) or to wash (in english)

Today Lavender has so many virtues and that is why we use it in our skincare. It’s been used both cosmetically and therapeutically. It is a powerful antioxydant, antimicrobial, antidepressive , has calming effect and sedative.

  • Lavender restores skin complexion and reduce acne
  • Slows aging process with powerful antioxydants

Difference between Isolate CBD, Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum.

Depending on how much CBD with THC you consume, how often you consume it, your body weight and your diet, it’s possible for THC to accumulate in your body in as little as four to six days and trigger a positive drug test.  So it is very important that you check the source of your products because many employers, for a number of good reasons, drug test their employees. Jobs that require strict attention, such as truck drivers and those operating heavy machinery. Those in the medical field, people working with young children, police officers, firefighters, and airline pilots are just a few of those who should expect to be tested upon hire and through random drug testing. 

Our company currently has 3 types of CBD oil products:

  • Full Spectrum
  • Broad Spectrum
  • Isolate CBD

Our CBD Isolate Tinctures are some of the most effective products on the market which is produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids. These are available in three concentrations and have a delicious peppermint flavor. If you’re not satisfied, there’s a 60-day money back guarantee!

Full Spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally occurring in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids with the trace amount of THC that meets all legal and federal requirements. The legal limit in the US is 0.3% and ours contains 0.03%-0.08%, so way below the legal limit. Our premium oils are available in three concentrations and three delicious flavors. We use a CO2 extraction process with Industrial Hemp grown on American Farms. Every batch we produce has a certificate of analysis so you can be confident that what’s on our label is in our bottle!

Broad spectrum CBD is a bit of a mix between Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate. Like Full Spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract; however, like CBD Isolate, THC is completely removed.

Because Broad Spectrum contains multiple cannabinoids, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect,” without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.

QR Scanning is also available on each bottles so you know exactly what you are ingesting!

There’s absolutely no high or negative effects from all our products but it can cause a false positive on a drug test like taking various over the counter drugs or something like that. Companies can legally advertise these full-spectrum oils as “zero THC” because legally it’s below the limit of 0.3% BUT it’s not absolutely THC free. So you really need to check the source of your products if you don’t want to be in any trouble.

All our products are produced on American farms using Organic methods and is free of GMOs, synthetics, fillers, and other harmful ingredients.

Buy from a reputable company and from someone that really understands this industry and these products to make sure you know what you’re buying.

Usually, THC-free CBD is made by random raw materials from overseas, in a lab, and the CBD molecule then added synthetically to them. We are not synthetic and never will be so it’s what separates us from other companies.

HempWorx/My Daily Choice products are made from industrial hemp plants grown on American farms. Cannabidiol (CBD), a constituent that naturally occurs in industrial Hemp, is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. Our oil is CO2 extracted resulting in a solvent free, pure product.

We believe in 100% transparency with our customers and affiliates. Every batch of product we produce gets sent out for Third Party Testing before we pick, pack, and ship product to the end user. This is the MyDailyChoice and HempWorx commitment to you. A product you can count on each and every time.

How to pick a high quality CBD oil?

  • Check the ingredients, if there are more than 2 or 3 ingredients it is not good quality.
  • The extra ingredients are fillers to make the production of the product less expensive but it taints the quality of the CBD oil.
  • CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil hemp seed oil.

Allow yourself to be a beginner

Being a beginner isn’t a bad thing or something to feel embarrassed about, because we need to give ourselves that time to be beginners.🤔

Being “not so great” at something doesn’t mean you’ll stay there forever 🙌

As you go on in your journey, you’re bound to face new challenges and obstacles. We can’t control how other people feel or act towards us, but we can control our own reactions 🤗

You don’t have to be perfect in order to start showing up, but you do have to show up and be present. You do have to do the work; there’s no way around that 😘

Be patient! Believe in yourself and practice! You ll achieve more than you think you are capable off 💪

One Love ❤️

Attitude of Gratitude

We too often focus on what we don’t have, and overlook or even ignore what we do have.

The attitude of gratitude helps anchor us, to remind us of what we have, and how precious it is to us.

So take a moment to look around you, and appreciate all you have. Might be meaningful for some but might be very important for others.

One love ❤️

Let go of the life we have planned

We like to control things, we like to make plans. 😎
We ignore the deep knowing, that tells us we may be in the wrong relationship or the wrong job, simply because we value comfort and certainty over living truthfully and expressing ourselves fully.🤔

Then we get sick, bitter and unhappy. Our surroundings also suffer from it because we wonder “what would have happened if I chose a different direction ?” 😧

So what to do to avoid feeling resentful and having regrets. How to be more spontaneous and creative? 🤔

It’s simple, yet difficult. 💪

We must release fear! We must trust our inner voice and instinct that anything is possible, that we are supported and guided. 
We might be disappointed or finding ourselves in discomfort situation. But the reality is that we will experience those things no matter what. It is a part of being human.👊

So jump! Believe you are unique! Believe in yourself and do what makes you happy! 🤗

One Love ❤️

What is your mission?

Maya Angelou became, for so many, a symbol of resilience — the capacity to persist in the face of hardship and adversity — and beyond that a symbol of boundless creativity.😎

If you don’t know her, check her biography. You will be amazed how strong this woman was.
Resilience, Creativity and Generosity are her 3 lessons to cope when adversity shows up.
