What Are Chakras

Chakras aren’t very common knowledge to most people. I know every time I talk about them, people never have a clue what I’m saying lol. Just like yoga and meditation, the chakras first came to us from India. They teach that the chakras are these energy vortexes in our bodies that align down our spine. Each chakra relates to a different part of your body and mind. The energy that theses vortexes suck in can either block your chakra or heal it, depending on the energy your have allowed near you.

A chakra that I know I have blocked is my throat chakra. Don’t worry I’ll explain the main chakras in more detail below. Anyways, I know my throat chakra is blocked because I can physically feel a heaviness in my throat area and I feel like I haven’t been able to express myself in years. When your throat chakra is unblocked you are able to express your truth and creativity freely. One way that I’m doing to unblock this chakra is by speaking my truth more and more through videos and blog posts. Since the throat chakra has to do with your voice, I always find singing in the shower helps too lol.


Here are the 7 main chakras:

  1. Root Chakra

The root chakra has to do with feeling grounded. It means you feel safe and secure in the home you are in and the body you are in. This is the base chakra that you must have fully healed in order to be able to fully express yourself in the rest of the chakras.

  1. Sacral Chakra

This chakra has to do with connecting with others and being secure enough to try new experiences. It is located right below your navel. You’ll feel more comfortable in social situations and be ready to say yes to more adventures!

  1. Solar Plexus Chakra

This is the third chakra and it has to do will feeling confident. If this chakra is balanced you will feel confident in yourself and your abilities. Your self-esteem will be at a all time high and you’ll be able to accomplish anything you set your mind to.

  1. Heart Chakra

When the heart chakra is balanced, you will be able to love fully. Not only love yourself, but have healthy loving relationships with others as well. This chakra is located, yes you guessed it, at your heart center.

  1. Throat Chakra

This chakra I mentioned above, it has to do with you being able to communicate freely. You will be more aligned with your truth and be able to share that with others.

  1. Third Eye Chakra

This is the sixth chakra and has to do with your ability to tap into your intuition. It is located at your third eye which is a little bit above the in between of your eyes. Being aligned with your intuition is important because you will be able to receive the guidance to live your best life possible for you.

  1. Crown Chakra

This chakra is located at the top of your head, hence named the crown chakra. When unblocked you will be connected to your higher self and more spiritual then ever. Apparently you will experience pure bliss and who doesn’t want that?

Honestly, I’ve been kind of embarrassed to admit how spiritual I’ve become. I blame this on my throat chakra being blocked lol. But seriously, I felt like I couldn’t share my new love for chakras because people wouldn’t understand or they would think I was weird. Talking about it more though has helped me get over this. I don’t care if people think I’m weird because I’m into things like chakras, chanting mantras and kundalini yoga. These are all just things I love that make me unique. And I’m so happy I’m finally able to share these interests without feeling bad about it.

Anyways, leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts about the chakras? I’d love to know if there are more people out there that are interested in things like me!

Love you,

Mermess Series

What Is a Mermess?

I am starting the new year with a new affirmation.

I am a Mermess.

What is a Mermess, you ask? Well, basically I took two words and mashed them together: Mermaid & Goddess. Mermess. Mermess encompasses the type of woman I want to be this year. She is powerful, strong and has a little magic to her. When I think of the word Mermaid, I imagine this beautiful mystical creature that is alluring yet deadly. She swims fearlessly through the waters ready for the adventures awaiting her. When I think of the word Goddess, I imagine this powerful woman who doesn’t let anything stop her as she goes after her dreams.


This new year is all about empowering myself and as many people as I can take with me. I want us to be strong, beautiful woman or men who don’t give a f about what anyone else says. We go after our dreams without putting limits on ourselves and we accomplish more and more every day. Our time starts now. Our year begins now. This is the year we finally go after what we have been thinking of, what we have been dreaming of, what we just can’t seem to get out of our heads. It’s our time to show the world how truly capable we are.

I’m beginning a series on YouTube under my Fijian Mermaid channel called Mermess. It’s going to be all about how to get yourself in the right state of mind to conquer your goals. I will teach you how to stay positive and how knowing about the chakras can change your life. Not only do I want to teach, I want to share my passion with you. That’s why I’m so excited to be doing videos. I think there’s a difference between reading the thoughts of others and actually seeing them express them. You become excited when you see another excited, it’s natural. I just can’t wait to begin this series! The first video is up now actually. In it I’m explaining, in more detail, what a Mermess is and what it means to me. So, be sure to check it out!

The new year is here, come and be a Mermess with me and live the life you’ve always dreamt for yourself!

Love you all & Happy New Year!

How To Stay Positive After A Breakup

I have just recently gotten out of a 4 year long relationship and I’m not going to lie, I felt really weird at the beginning. I have always been the type of girl that is either in a relationship or is wanting to be in a relationship. In other words, I  basically don’t want to be single. Being in a relationship has always fulfilled me or so I thought. I’m the type to focus on another person’s needs before my own. How can I help to make their day better? What are their dreams and what can I do to help make it a reality? I’ve always focused on the other person and ignored the fact that my own needs weren’t actually being met. And when I say this, I don’t mean the other person wasn’t meeting my needs. I mean that I wasn’t leaving energy of my own to focus on the things that really mattered to me. I also put a lot of my energy into seeking approval from my partner on the creative projects I did attempt to pursue. Huge mistake.

I’ve been in some tough relationships too and now it’s time for me to take a break from all the drama and focus on me. I’ve been in a relationship where the guy was supposedly cheating on me, there was one that was physically abusive, and then one that was mentally abusive. I feel as women, we don’t really feel comfortable talking about the negative things men have done to us. That is why when that hashtag #metoo was going around, it really made an impact. Anyways, I feel like I’ve gone off topic so let me get back to it. Being single for the first month felt weird. At the beginning, I so badly wanted someone, anyone to just comfort me. I didn’t think I could be strong on my own. But as time went by, I did get stronger. I realized I have never truly believed in myself or my dreams. Instead, I looked for validation that my ideas were even worth pursuing and that was just putting a cap on what I could achieve. Being single now, it’s finally the time to stop depending on a man to make me feel whole and to take back control of my life.

Here are a few steps that I took and that you can too to help you move past a breakup and become your true beautiful self:

1. Journal
Journaling has been the most important addition to my life. After a breakup, your emotions are so raw and hard to process. I feel like when ever I get overwhelmed, I sit down to write and all of the sudden I feel so much better. My issues that I’m going through don’t feel so big anymore when they are written down on paper and I can really analyze what I am feeling. This is how I move past what I am feeling and become more secure in myself.


2. Spend Time With Friends & Family
Something I tend to neglect when I am in a relationship is spending time with my family and friends. Now that I have moved back into my parent’s house, I am spending more time with my family than I have in years. And guess what? It feels great! There’s just something about spending time with like-minded individuals, this includes friends, that makes you feel whole again. It’s making me feel like I belong again and that feeling is so powerful.

3. Exercise
The best way to release pent up emotions is through exercise. So, find a type of exercise that works best for you and start implementing it into your life. For me it’s taking my dog, Gucci, for a walk and doing kundalini yoga. Walking with Gucci, either on a trail or just around the neighbourhood, makes me so happy! Just seeing how happy and excited he is to be out with me brings me so much joy! And then there’s kundalini yoga. I am a big believer in the chakras, even though I am still in the learning stages of it, and feel like balancing your chakras really do help to improve your life. Kundalini yoga is an exercise that helps to balance your chakras and I feel an immediate change when I am done a session. Any type of yoga or stretching is also great for releasing emotions and feeling more comfortable in the body you have.



4. Find Your Focal Point
What I mean by this is that you need to find something to focus on and only work towards that. What is it that you want to express during your time here on this planet? Who do you want to be and how do you plan on becoming that person? We create our lives as we go through the choices that we make. Everyday we are making choices that are creating our future. So, find a focal point and do something every day, no matter how small, that will help you get closer to that goal. For me, I want to start my own business and be more active on social sites. Right now I feel like my life is chaos because I’m trying to do all the things I’ve been wanting to do all at once. I think the beginning always looks messy and that you just need to keep working on it no matter what. After all this is your dream and no one else can create it for you.

So, there you have it. Just a few tips that I wanted to share that are helping me get through this tough transition right now.  I have put way too much energy into creating a relationship than in creating a career I am passionate about. So, now it’s time for me to switch direction. This is a good thing. I now can see that I have been stuck in the same patterns and it’s time to make better choices.
