Follow the shape of an arc to add, reward, and commit to health. Start on the upward curve by adding a new behavior to an existing one; reward yourself at the top; and commit to this new behavior on the final curve towards ingraining a healthy habit.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” ~ Aristotle
Use the arc of a rainbow as a symbol for keeping promises to yourself. Just as there are seven layers to a rainbow, you have seven energy centers to support you in building healthy habits. Follow the arc formula (add, reward, commit) to create a healthy morning routine and you'll discover that how your morning goes is how the whole day flows.
Tap into the life force energy stored in your root chakra to create a healthy habit for your body. Use the arc formula by adding the habit of drinking hot lemon water to starting your day; reward yourself with a happy dance or tell yourself that you're awesome;...

Frequency is determined by vibration. Your vibration is the energetic expression of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Like a rainbow that has a spectrum of light vibrating at various frequencies, you send out a frequency based on your thoughts, feelings and emotions.
“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ~ Nikola Tesla
Energetically you're made of energy centers called chakras. Each of your seven chakras match the color spectrum of the rainbow. When your centers get clouded by fear and doubt your energy is diminished. Focus your attention on what you love, trust your soul to guide you, and have faith in the universe to support you and you'll naturally raise your frequency.
There is a unified field of consciousness where we're all connected. It takes a quiet mind and an open heart to be aware of the divine universal energy that unites our human...

You have seven energy centers, known as chakras, that form the energetic architecture of your soul. Activate your chakra system to heal what needs healing by using the vibration of color and the power of natural elements.
“Each of the seven chakras are governed by spiritual laws, principles of consciousness that we can use to cultivate greater harmony, happiness, and wellbeing in our lives and in the world.” ~ Deepak Chopra
Activate your root chakra, located at the base of your spine, by standing barefoot on the earth to get grounded and discharge the energy of stress. Imagine your legs are like two prongs of an electrical plug that are being connected to its power source. Your first chakra resonates with the color red so eating red fruits and veggies will energize it.
Your sacral chakra is located two inches below your naval and is activated by water. Feel the pleasure of being immersed in water,...
As the master gardener of your life you’re continually planting seeds. When you do this with intention those seeds will receive the nourishment and light they need to grow, bloom, and flourish in the physical world.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anais Nin
The lotus flower symbolizes rebirth because it rises out of the mud and blooms as an amazing flower. It represents spiritual development as it has to overcome the mundane world (mud) to reach higher states of pure consciousness (lotus). Use this image as a reminder to rise up and reach your full potential.
To plant a seed of intention you can focus on your chakras (energy centers) to symbolize each phase of growth. Your first three chakras are related to the physical world and the fourth, at your heart center, is the bridge between the physical and spiritual dimensions.
Focus your attention on your root chakra...
The spiral is an organizing principle found in nature. From distant galaxies to your unique fingerprint, the Fibonacci Sequence shows up in sunflowers, pine cones, waves, and shells to remind us of the natural order of things.
For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned. ~ Benjamin Franklin
To organize your life like a spiral begin at your heart center and work your way outward from there. If you want your outer world to be more organized start by turning inward, taking a few deep breaths, and listening to your heart.
Organize your thoughts in such a way that they generate good feelings. The better you feel the more effective you will be at organizing your day. Being organized generates more good feelings, and on and on it goes, creating an upward spiral of well-being.
If you experience a downward spiral it could be a sign that you're trying to organize your life from the outside in. This means...
You’re in charge of your energetic frequency. The vibes you put out into the world naturally come back to you. Give the kind of energy you wish to receive, and the principle of vibration will be a blessing rather than a curse.
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration." ~ Nikola Tesla
Raise the frequency of your root energy by connecting with the earth. Walk barefoot on grass, dirt or sand to get grounded. You can also sit with your back against a tree or go for a hike in the mountains to make this vital connection.
Raise the frequency of your sacral energy by getting into water, especially in nature. Find a lake, stream, river or ocean to experience its cleansing effects. The flow of water naturally uplifts, heals, and helps you let go of anything you don’t need.
Raise the frequency of your solar plexus energy with the sun. Get outdoors and expose your...
