Meditation is effective as it has been proven to not only reduce stress, but improve health and restore your balance by realigning your mind, body and soul.
The seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows through.

It can be arduous at the beginning, but like many things in life, we get what we give.
Its very important to maintain a healthy balance between your mind, body and soul.

Meditation can be tough and of course it takes lots and lots of practice.
We all have off days and to be honest, it’s hard to start a new routine in our busy lives.
There will be days that are easier than others, and days when calming the mind seems impossible.
Just stick with it!
It’s essential that we be forgiving of our “off days” or moments of stress and anxiety that effect our meditation practice.
Take a few deep breaths and try again.
Always, Always have fun…
