The fourth chakra, also known as the heart chakra or Anahata, is the center of love and connection. A strong, balanced heart chakra allows you to live freely and openly from a place of compassion. However, a blocked heart chakra can interfere with your happiness and relationships in many ways.

Healing the heart chakra, you will find many ways to help balance the fourth chakra. The simplest is to surround yourself with things that stimulate it. Its color is green, so wearing green gemstones, like emerald, malachite, jade and green tourmaline is best, green clothing or jewelry and lighting green candles can help open and balance it. Chakra healing crystals are  useful for this.  

Regular meditation and yoga practice is wonderful for healing the chakras. Imagine a ball of light green healing energy in your chest, gently removing the blockage and opening your heart. Since Anahata’s element is air, deep breathing or pranayama into your heart space.

Ayurveda: Healing Science 

Ayurveda embraces a holistic perspective of health, bringing awareness and balance to the energy flow between body, mind, and spirit. 

Contained in Ayurvedic literature are several mythological origins of Ayurveda. The most popular say that the Creator of the Universe, known as Lord Brahma, recalling the science of life to mind, taught it to the great holy beings who walked on the earth during those days. 

When disease began to trouble human beings, the wise sages assembled in the valley of the Himalayas to find a solution to ward off misery. They decided to learn the Science of Ayurveda from the great holy ones. After receiving this knowledge, the sages continued to pass down the science through their oral traditions for thousands of years.

New Moon in Taurus 

This upcoming new Moon in Taurus happens tonight April 26, and, it is a very interesting time. It can feel like a real push-me pull-you experience, and, we’ve been feeling that for some time, but, now it’s getting more accentuated. Feelings are amped up as we are being pushed to change, and, change we will, at least to some extent in some measure. 

This new Moon in Taurus carries a flavor of wanting (or needing) to be accepted, respected, a valuable member of the tribe, to not feel like an outcast, a reject, or like someone who just doesn’t measure up. 

The Sabian Symbol for this new Moon is The Woman Of Samaria At Jacob’s Well, and, we may at times feel like an alien, or as we may not don’t fit in, are not taken seriously or take up too much room or space. None of this is what we want or where we want to be going, of course, but, when we can identify any of these reactions, thoughts or feelings, we can see them for what they are and purge them now for good. This can be a very healing new Moon. 
The biggest thing with this new Moon period is that Venus (which rules Taurus) is now direct, and, about to move from Pisces into Aries. This will help things along. We’ve had Venus retrograde conjunct (together with) Chiron, and squaring Saturn for what seems like weeks now. Many have been experiencing the tension and stress of the feeling of having to move away from familiar situations, the need to let go of something or someone. 

Mercury is retrograde and the  message of Mercury at this new Moon is that we can bring back something that we thought was lost.. we can renew or revive something. Mercury is in a very powerful aspect with not only planet Uranus (it’s conjunct or together with Uranus in Aries), but, it’s also trining Saturn. This can bring breakthroughs in understanding, decisions and/or moves made, final resolutions to old stories, a deep letting go of restrictions and moving into the future. When Mercury goes direct smack on Uranus and trine Saturn, so, it’s a very strong period of out with the old and in with the new.  

Mercury is also asking us to be pioneers; to reach out to new shores, new beginnings, to do a big, deep let go. The new Moon means that the Sun and the Moon are both together – bringing a synergy of their energies together. It is a perfect time to set your intentions for the future. This period is wonderful for planting seeds of any kind whatever you wish. 

Ask yourself, What do you want to manifest in your future? Whether you write it down or just hold the thought forms in your mind, doing this at the new Moon can bring forth  some fabulous results. This new moon is giving us an enormous opportunity to break free of past barriers, limitations, and restrictions. It’s leading us out of the swamp of negative feelings and emotions, and, it’s asking that you concentrate on YOU, not on everyone else first, but YOU first.

Sunrise in Different Dimensions 

Life is a precious moment, sometimes we can forget this. When you meet with your awareness, it is a mechanism of life flowing, and as your awareness and life interacts, life is being shaped by you! 
What potential futures are you offering to Life? 

As life is observed, whether it’s your own or another’s experience; it becomes important to be able to connect with a feeling of safety, security, and a feeling of a unlimited potential. 

Observing life is a good exercise for discovering potentials with the positive energies that you are wanting to create. It’s good for breaking through challenge and taking the opportunity that challenge presents. 

This is not the first time most of you have understood that this yearning is the essence of your soul calling to you, guiding you back into alignment with your truth. 

Time and time again, you’ve  followed your intuition, risked it all in devotion to your soul, and trusted that this call within you was greater than your fear. And time and time again, this trust and devotion has repaid 10 fold… but in between it has tested you. When you observe life, you are a witness and it is important to develop your strength that creates a level of neutrality with the physical experience so that you may connect with the potential improvement and neutrality that helps find self-compassion with the present moment. As you are able to shift your resonance within, you are able to connect with a potential that resides in the subtle realm that resolves challenge into a new potential. This is the core of creating a new experience, anchoring a new creation, rather than just repeating a pattern with a different façade. 

Sitting back, allowing, and surrender. Draw the desire to you to make the soul call manifest.

Cutting Cords

Sometimes the emotions we are feeling belong to the person we are in a connection with and an energetic cord must be severed. 

In every relationship, people are constantly exchanging energy that can become a chord connecting two people. This energetic cord forms just below the breastbone and can remain long after a relationship has ended. This unbroken cord may leave an open channel between you and another person, through which emotions and energy can continue to flow. If you are unaware that the chord exists, it is easy to feel the other person’s emotions and mistakenly think that they are yours. Cutting the cord can help you separate yourself from old baggage, unnecessary attachments, and release you from connections that are no longer serving you. Finding and cutting unwanted cords is a simple, gentle process that is best done when you are by yourself and when you are relaxed. It is important that you are strong in your intention to release the chord between you and someone else.

To begin, breathe deeply and find your center for meditation. Visualize the chords that are connecting you to other people. Run your fingers through the cords to separate them until you find the cord you wish to sever. When you are ready, visualize or sense the chords that are connecting you to other people. Run your fingers through the cords to separate them until you find the cord you wish to sever. When you have found it, determine where the cut should be made and then visualize the cord being cleanly cut.

When you need assistance, Archangel Michael can be called upon to help you with his sword. Afterwards, if you feel that cutting the chord has left spaces in your energy field, then visualize those spaces being filled with healing sunlight.




There may be times where cutting a cord can help free a relative or loved one to reach new stages of growth. You’re not severing a relationship, but you are cutting the chords that are no longer serving you both. At other times, a cord may simply refuse to be cut because it is still serving a higher purpose. It is also important to remember that cutting a cord with someone is not a replacement for doing your emotional work with people. It can, however, be an enactment of that work upon its completion. In any case, cutting a relationship could always be viewed as a positive and nurturing act. By cutting the cords that no longer need to be there, you are setting yourself and others free.

Super-Simple, Kid-Friendly Smoothies

Smoothies are popular in our house, even with kids who claim to not like many fruits, or yogurt. 

When you are introducing your kids to smoothies, make sure the ingredients are to their liking. If they love chocolate, make a chocolate flavored smoothie with a dash of fruit. Make the idea of smoothies exciting, children love to be involved in the process. Let them make smoothies with fruits of their choice, on the condition that they will drink it. Guide them to make sure that the smoothie they make is edible. Lol. 

You are lucky if your child likes eating vegetables. Otherwise, you can disguise the tastes of vegetables with fruits or yogurt. For example, if you want to add broccoli or spinach to the smoothie, you can add a strawberry, banana, or grapefruit to give it a sweet and tangy flavor. To make smoothies fun during summer, you can make Popsicles and add them into the smoothie.  

The good news is that smoothies are extremely flexible. If your house doesn’t drink cow’s milk, you can always substitute with almond, coconut, rice or soy milk. You can use the yogurt of your choice and honey or agave are both great natural sweeteners. 

The kids can choose the flavor of the juice – orange, apple, cranberry or even coconut water. 

Here are a couple of our favorite super simple kid-friendly smoothies 
Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Makes one serving


1/2 banana

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1 cup frozen strawberries

1/4 cup orange juice

Drizzle of honey or agave 

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until combined and serve.

Mango Orange Smoothie

Makes one serving


1 mango, cubed (or one cup frozen mango)

Last but not least is favorite 

Blueberry Bliss Smoothie

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 cup frozen blueberries

2 teaspoons honey

Smoothies for kids are healthy and easy to make and can be had any time of the day. You can serve them during breakfast or as evening snacks. The popularity of smoothies has encouraged businesses to come up with ready-to-go smoothies in different flavors. Dr. Smoothie, Suja, Happy Planet, Happy Monkey, and Innocent Smoothie For Kids are among the most popular smoothie brands in the market today. While it is fine to pick one of these packs, homemade smoothies from fresh fruits and vegetables turn out to be the best in the long run. 

Fruity smoothies are a fun and healthy way to start your child’s day! It’s a power breakfast. The best part? They’re super-easy to create.
