3. Talk to your spouse or a close friend about a time when you overcame temptation. Or blog about it!
4. Meditate on a time you struggled to overcome something but succeeded.
5. Brainstorm how you can understand your emotions better.
6. List 5 times you adapted to unforseen cirumstances.
7. Listen to solar plexus binaural beats.

Comment below which challenges you intend to participate in. Then come back at the end of the week and let me know how you feel. What did you learn about yourself. 


  1. After completing the grounding meditation, starting with the root chakra, open each of your chakras, one by one. To do this? All you have to do is simply imagine each one opening. I assign a colored rosebud, corresponding to chakra color, for each of the seven chakras, and imagine it bloom. At Britta Jean you can learn more about.

  2. Opening, cleansing, and closing chakras has the sole purpose of freeing stagnant energy. By keeping energy flowing, we can prevent blockages from forming, and physical manifestations (symptoms) of these blockages from appearing. You can cleanse your own chakras, as part of your nightly or weekly meditation, and you can do so as a general upkeep mechanism, or with the intention to free stagnant energy to heal a particular issue you are facing. At Britta Jean you can learn more about.

  3. I used to do meditation. But was unable to open the Chakras in me. This seems to be a spiritual thing with the development of senses ,human nature and thoughts. But how do I get the answer that how to open your chakras

  4. binaural beats work for me to get into a good meditative trance. If you want to go the extreme get the hemisync gateway series.Meditation is great for my anxiety but bad for depression it seems.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation. I'll look into those. As odd as it may sound, I'm finding that certain levels of depression enable me to think and feel ideas that I doubt I could ever reach had I not experienced the depression in the first place.
