What do my lips say about me?


Wider smile

A wide smile indicates a strong appetite for life and a hunger for new experiences. Such a person will find it harder to feel satisfied and once settled get the urge to institute changes. Wide lips will typically extend so that the ends are beyond the outer edge of the iris when relaxed.

Curvy upper lip

Lips that have a strong curvy shape across the top of the upper lip along with a pronounced philtrum suggest greater vitality. This could be sexual vitality or generally more energy and endurance. Look for a strong M shape to the top of the upper lip and a defined vertical groove between the peaks of the upper lip and nose.

Curved lower lip

A noticeable curve along the lower edge of the bottom lip indicates that style and artistic qualities are important. Such a person may find it easy to create a sense of glamour to what ever they do.

Open mouth    

Someone who leaves his or her mouth open may be particularly relaxed and easy going. This would also reveal the inside of the mouth and suggest an open, accessible character.


Smiling sends out a message of friendliness. The unconscious signal is that the person is safe, playful and ready to engage. Smiles can also be a sign of approval, agreement and acquiescence. Someone who smiles often may be seeking harmony and sending out a signal that he or she wants to be accepted and included.


When someone is talking we can observe the way he or she moves his or her lips. Sometimes the person may make an effort to create neat and tidy movements bring his or her lips back to rest in the same place. This indicates self-control, organisation and care.

Varied lip movement where the mouth takes on unexpected shapes and returns to a variety of positions suggest a person who likes spontaneity, surprise and change.

Pursed lips

Closing our lips tightly suggest tension, stress or concentration. Biting the lower lip can be a sign of anxiety.

As I take things day by day I know I may not be great or the best at this moment. However, I know if I wait until I am great I will never begin or become great.

The Second Chakra or energy center is called Svadhisthana which means sweetness.Water is the element. It is located in the sacrum and connected to sexuality, creativity, emotions and nurturing. When it out of balance emotional problems may occur such as sexual guilt and you may become self-centered, distrusting and cold towards others. You may also be over-emotional, obsessive about someone, depressed, have a lack of sexual drive of excessive libido. If it is over stimulate you may be addicted to drugs, gambling, food, and sex.

Overactive Second Chakra:
Greediness, Addiction, Tension, Compulsivity, Frustration.

An Underactive Second Chakra: 
Disinterest, Repressed Feelings, Self-deprivation, Depression, Sexual Repression.

Physical health problems may include: problems with fertility, kidney and bladder infections, impotence, lower back pain, problems with hips, chronic fatigue.

Ways to balance the 2nd Chakra:

Colors: Orange
Foods: Honey, healthy oils and fatty acids, nuts, chocolate, bread & butter, milk & dairy, ice cream, wine, pasta. Again if these are foods you are addicted to you maybe overactive in this area and may need to eliminate them from your diet.
Herbs: Fennel, Coriander, Calendula
Essential Oils: Oils that are Uplifting, calming and balance the yin/yang.  Examples are Jasmine,  Patchouli and Rosemary.
Stones/Crystals: Carnelian, Orange Calcite, Coral, Amber.

My feelings are healthy. Part of the miracle of being alive is having the capacity to feel, to learn and experience the world through my senses. I do not confuse this wonder with the greater wonder of love. I can allow myself to feel without fear. I am guided by the voice of my Higher Self, not controlled by my body. My body seeks only genuine and healing pleasures that are healthy and balanced.


Cobra posture,: A true classic in Yoga, and is indicated for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th

Chakras. It improves posture, strengthens the spine while helping it to be more flexible. Circulation is improved from the additional blood flow through the vertebrae. It is also good for the heart.

Twist: If you want get your spine to be more flexible and increase the blood flow into the vertebrae and nerves, this posture stimulates it all. It also strengthens the inner organs (liver, pancreas, and spleen). This is also written about in Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

Hip circles and pelvic rocking are also good for the 2nd Chakra.

Chakra’s & Healing…Base Chakra Muladhara…

English: Diagram of chakras and Kundalini in a...

English: Diagram of chakras and Kundalini in a human being Italiano: Diagramma dei chakra e della Kundalini in un essere umano (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

There are 7 main Charkra’s and over 100 mini Chakra’s in our body.  I am going to touch base on each Chakra and ways to benefit each one. Kundalini is thought to rise up the chakra’s to awaken us. And it sit’s in the base chakra. This is the Chakra I will start with.

Base Chakra in Sanskrit, Muladhara literally translates as ‘root’. Earth is the element.  It is at the base as we need it strong and balanced to feel grounded and secure. It is how we connect to the physical world.  When it unbalanced you may feel isolated, insecure and ungrounded and overly concerned with material things. It is also connected to eating and you may find yourself overweight if it is overactive. When it is overactive you become indulgent in food and drink to fulfill your basic needs. The challenge is to accept our body, feel it, validate it and love it. If it is under active you might feel depression, chronic fatigue, daydreaming, delusions, anorexia, chain-smoking and mental illness.

Overactive Base Chakra:
Paranoia, Aggression, Mania, Nervousness, Fear

Under-active Base Chakra:
Apathy, Weakness, Depression, Passivity, Lethargy

Physical Health Problems may include: Constipation, obesity, sciatica, immune disorders and hemorrhoids.

Ways to balance your first Chakra… and maybe beware if your are over stimulated.

Colors: Red and Black

Stones/Crystals: Black obsidian, Hematite, Black Tourmaline, Garnet, Smokey Quartz.

Foods: Protein and Root Vegetables, Spinach. Red or black colored foods.

Herbs: Cayenne Pepper, Hot Spices, Ginger. *Cayenne pepper is  detoxifying so I think it good in either case to bring it to the surface and purge. Although if you are overactive in this Chakra you probably crave spices and need to cut back on them.

Essential Oils: Grounding-Sandalwood, Cedarwood Rosewood. Isolation, Fear, Anxiety-Frankincense, Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang.

To balance this chakra, affirm every day:
I have a beautiful physical body. I assume responsibility for my body. I recognize it is a gift from God and I can trust it I am safe inside my body and I take good care of me. My base chakra is open, balanced and I am fully grounded and comfortable being me.

I am safe and secure at all times.


I am divinely protected and guided and my way is made smooth and easy.



I know that I belong. I know that I am safe.


People now support me in an easy and pleasurable way.


It is safe for me to enjoy my life now.



I am responsible for the quality of my life.



I am open to new ideas, new thoughts, and new people in my life.


I trust life supports me in fulfilling my purpose.


I can risk doing what I feel is right.
I am a life enhancer.
I am creating a healthy foundation on which creativity can flourish.

Yoga Postures:

Locust: The blood flows through the legs down into the kidneys to flush out toxins.

Kegal: is not a Yoga posture, but is an invaluable stretch for the muscle that encircles the vagina and anus in women and the base of the penis and anus in men. It is the pubococcygeus (aka PC muscle). It stretches from the pubic bone to the coccyx, and can be strengthened with the Kegel exercise. It is a very important exercise to do every day, as often as you can think about it!

Setu Bandhasana- Bridge: It strengthens the muscles of the abdomen and thighs.

Your basic relaxation Savasana
