How To Sharpen Your Sixth Sense | Third Eye Chakra
You see the physical world through your eyes and you also have the ability to see the spiritual world through your third eye, chakra. The third eye symbolizes an enlightened state of consciousness through which one can perceive the world.
It also helps us see clearly, both physically and psychically. It supports imagination, awareness of the subtle/energetic world, intuitive knowing, and inner vision. When you see something “with your mind’s eye,” you are seeing it with the Ajna chakra.
What is the Sixth-Chakra?
Sixth-chakra intuition and wisdom are universal and transcendent in nature. The 6th chakra, when highly developed, elevates consciousness and confers deep spiritual insight and awareness. Perception of non-ordinary reality may accompany this.
The third eye chakra is a main point for external life energy (prana, chi) to enter and be distributed to the other chakras. It is also a key to ongoing spiritual development. Thus, keeping it as clear and balanced as possible is very important.

Color of the Third Eye:
The third eye chakra is associated with the color indigo. Simply lighting this color of candle and relaxing while focusing on this chakra can bring it into balance. Also wearing indigo colored clothing or surrounding yourself with this color of flower can bring harmony within the chakra.

YOUR AURA FIELD | KEEPING THE FREQUENCY HIGH
Universal energy connects each of us to all that is around us. Every living being is connected to the universal energy and each one of us has our own unique frequency. Positive thoughts keep our frequency high, as well as leading a healthy lifestyle, allows you to have and keep a healthy frequency. Positive energy for example, being Happy or in Love is a way our frequencies reach a much higher level. When we live in a state of negativity, lack of exercise or by eating unhealthy food we lower our energetic frequencies. Another way to lower your frequency, is by using products with chemicals, drinking alcohol or taking drugs as choices do not allow the body to have high frequency.
Our life is a reflection of our inner and outer energy. In other words our thoughts, what we do to and put into our physical body. We are responsible for our energy frequency by the choices we make.
Here are 7 simple things that we can do to assist our energy field in keeping our frequency as high as possible:
Try one of these at a time. Integrate one into your day to day life and become aware of any changes that may occur. Do this with love and patience for your body as it becomes safe with each new change.
- BECOME AWARE OF YOUR BREATH AND BREATHING PATTERNS. When you are anxious or fearful focus on expanding your breath. Use an expansive breath to change an Old Pattern and begin a New Pattern. Deep controlled breathing. Awareness and Focus with patience. This is a great way to raise your energetic frequency.
BEGIN A MEDITATION PRACTICE. Meditation just 15-20 minutes 3 to 5 times a week will make a significant change in your daily life and raise your energetic frequency. Meditation is the practice of quieting and focusing the mind. By sitting in a comfortable position, becoming aware of your breathing: slow, deep and rhythmic will allow for stress release as well as a feeling of great calm and peace. The Timelessness is a wonderful 10 min. breath meditation, click here.
ADD EXERCISE TO YOU DAILY ROUTINE. Walking for 20 to 30 minutes is a great way to start. Or look for a class to join: Yoga, Zumba whatever sounds fun to you. Enlist a family member of friend to accompany you.
GO OUT IN NATURE. Take time to go to your favorite spot in nature: Beach, Park, Zoo, The Farm and use all your senses: Sight, Smell, Hearing, Feelings, Tasting to raise your energetic frequency. You will find a sense of peacefulness and see the BEAUTY all around you.
FEED YOUR BODY NATURAL, ORGANIC, CHEMICAL FREE FOODS. Keep you frequency high by purchasing and consuming only natural, chemical free items. This includes the food you put into your body and the daily items you use on your body. From the fruits and vegetables you eat to the perfume, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, nail polish, makeup used on your body, just to name a few everyday items in our lives.
SEE LIFE’S BEAUTY AND ENJOY THE SMALL THINGS. Our lives have become so busy and full with all sorts of activities. You need to give yourself permission to take time to really enjoy life by slowing down. Set aside all your stressful thoughts for a short time to renew you energy field and raise your frequency. You will have a new calmer perspective when you return to your every day, everything will be waiting for you.
JOURNAL YOUR THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS. Begin writing/typing your thoughts, feelings, questions, concerns, fears, hopes and dreams. Do this without and judgment about what you write, just release the thoughts from your conscious mind. As humans we judge ourselves and have self talk that can be negative.

Feng Shui Guidelines For Your Home, Office or Business
The Beautiful and Ancient System of Feng Shui has helped people harness universal forces and lead lives rich in good health, wealth and happiness.
Feng Shui practice can be applied to almost every facet of the living and working condition. It has to do with enhancing the energies of the surrounding environment as well as the immediate living and working space. It functions on the premise that if one lives- breathes, sleeps, sits, eats, and works – surrounded by healthy, vibrant energy, then one will be enveloped by an aura of good vibrations that attract excellent or healthy success. On the other hand, if one is shrouded by bad energy or constrictive energy, the environment brings constrictive or unhealthy outcomes.
10 Feng Shui Guidelines For Your Home, Office or Business
- Create a separation between the entrance foyer and the rest of the interior space. Transition time is needed from the exterior world into our homes.
- Provide clear-cut pathways both within each room and from room to room. Distinct passageways make one fell secure.
- Represent nature in your home with the five elements; water, fire, metal, wood, earth. These remind us of our connection to the whole earth and they nurture a sense of well-being.
- Have important seating areas in your home facing windows that look east or south. Sunlight promotes optimism.
- Arrange your bed so that you can see any person who enters the room without having to turn your head more than 45 degrees. You do not want to be startled when you are trying to relax.
- Furnish your home with both yin lines (curved) and yang lines (straight). A combination of masculine and feminine lines will create balance.
- Make provisions for both intense and soft lighting with in each room. Lighting can create appropriate atmospheres.

FUN IN THE SUN | Vitamin D
As summer is fast approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about a semi-controversial subject….the sun! Worshiped by Aztecs and later by extreme tanning
enthusiasts, the glowing orb that fuels our little planets energy systems, is a vital part of
the human body’s well being.
I am not advocating exposing yourself continuously to the harsh UV rays of the sun until
your skin is either burnt to a crisp or cured as a leather, but what I am saying is that
sunlight in moderation is not only good for you, but necessary for optimal well-being.
How UVB Rays Are Good For You:
The UVB rays in the sun (the very same rays that cause sunburn) cause the body to
synthesize a certain chemical, that is present in the skin, into Vitamin D. Vitamin D
actually works in the body as a hormone. It helps the body with the absorption of
calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D also helps protect the body from autoimmune and
certain female organ cancers. It also helps with mood regulation, one of the reasons
people often suffer from SADD is due to the lack of sunlight in the winter months.
Ways To Get Your Daily Vitamin D:
While there are many factors that prevent people from getting the vitamin D necessary
from the sun alone (sunscreen, fully covered in clothing, smog, etc), it is important to
accept this simple gift mother nature has to offer and try to spend 15 min a day in the
unfiltered light. For any deficiencies of vitamin D, there are lots of fortified foods and
supplements. If you are worried that you may be deficient in vitamin D, you can always
ask your doctor for a simple blood test to find out.

About the Author:
Leslie Kemp, CHHC. I have been actively involved in the health and wellness industry for over 15 years. I graduated from The Desert Institute of the Healing Arts in 2000 as a massage therapist. This journey led me to also study aromatherapy, Thai bodywork, and Reiki. In my quest for studying and sharing healing modalities the missing component in my tool belt seemed obvious. Hippocrates said it best, “Let food be they medicine and medicine be thy food.” So I attended the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. During my training, I studied over 100 different dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.
I am a member of The International Association for Health Coaches. In my practice, I work with women who have lost their spark to help them get their sass back by empowering them to make lifestyle choices that will allow them to thrive.
