If you want to live each day to its fullest potential, consider intentionally making small changes each day to focus on creating the health, wealth and relationships you want in your life.
Competing commitments or behaviors work to keep things in your life the same. Our brains will stop themselves from trying something new because of fear of failure. Take small steps, making small changes each day to keep moving forward toward your higher purpose. Small steps or changes in your intentions and actions each day will create new neural pathways in your brain. Every day your confidence will build.
So, every morning, set a clear and purposeful intention to move you into action. You can't experience change in your life without making changes! But baby steps, that can be measured at the end of the day, will lead to big changes and great success in your life. What small steps can you take today?
For inspiration and ideas, read how the members of the Chakra Workshop in The Chakra Diaries take baby steps to move their lives from the tragic to the triumphant.
Becca Chopra, author of The Chakra Diaries
I was recently asked why I wrote The Chakra Diaries and other questions by YogaLifeJourney.com. Here are some of my answers:
I started writing The Chakra Diaries as a short story – an homage to a colleague and friend, an energy healer, who got cancer, but died in peace and full of love because of the forgiveness work she did during her last few months. I had to make sense of her life’s story and I found I could do that through the lens of the chakras. So too, for the other characters who tell their stories in the “diary” format – you can see where their problems originated and experience their transformations and manifestations along with them. The soul of all their stories is the healing power of love.
As the chakra workshop leader, my character is on her own quest to live a life of discovery and love. Because of her humanity, she tends to love too much and overstep all the conventional boundaries, but “she stirs her students at levels everyone wants to be moved,” as one reviewer remarked.
Chakra balancing can help a person overcome emotional, physical, mental, social and spiritual challenges, and I wanted to show all these road blocks being removed by the rainbow of the chakras. While The Chakra Diaries is not a teaching guide (there are many fabulous reference books on the chakras), I hope it engrosses the reader with its true-to-life drama, sensuality and miraculous moments. Yogis and yoginis will probably nod their heads in agreement at many points of the stories and even get up and do some of the poses recommended by the workshop leader.
