Anyone that knows me, knows that I’m very into universal laws and the power of manifestation. I know it works because I’ve done it, many times. However, I truly feel that in order to really harness your power and achieve your highest goals you have to be balanced. I find that when I’m up early and completely fueling my body by going to the gym, eating well, and sleeping well, my powers are limitless.
My dear friend Ashley Shift and I met through a mutual friend Jen Harley at the Hacked By Nature store launch. Recently Ashley released some shift kits under her brand, and I was lucky enough to be a part of the manufacturing process with her. From the moment she blended the essential oils for each product (specialty blends chosen for each chakra), I knew these were going to help many people. As with anything in life, you have to do the work, and these kits are basically the tools you need to keep you on track to achieve your goals. Ashley also gives guidance for anyone who purchases a kit and hosts many online, FREE classes about manifesting, wellness, using the kits, crystals, and so much more. If you want to take advantage of the lessons she gives (which I can vouch for) go to ShiftMyChakras.com. I wanted to interview Ashley so that she can give some of my readers the basics. If any of you are feeling stuck or just unmotivated and want to shift, the information is all here!
Heather: How did you get involved with crystals and chakras?
Ashley: In 2014 I started on a major spiritual awakening journey. I began by focusing on my mental and physical health because I was extremely ill at the time, and I didn’t want to get tied up depending on medications. So, I started doing research on how to heal myself with herbs, crystals etc. While going down the metaphysical rabbit hole, I stumbled upon chakras and how they are linked to the different parts of our body — our moods, our emotions, and our energy. I was so intrigued by how it all tied together, that I went on a search to find mentors and courses to educate myself. I became a medicine woman, and at that point decided to go on a mission to help humanity get in tune with themselves by first getting in alignment with nature.
Heather: For those of us that don’t know what a chakra is, tell us what is it and how balancing it can help us in our daily lives.
Ashley: Well, I’m not saying balancing your chakras is the be-all, end-all, but I’m saying it could be playing a MAJOR part in why you are experiencing blockages and why you may feel how you feel. We all have chakras in our body, so it only makes sense for us to know about them. To put it simply, chakras are centers where energy comes and goes and gets transformed — both on the physical & spiritual level. The word chakra means “wheel” or “rotating ring”. Although we have hundreds of chakras, we have 7 main chakras, and each one, depending on where it is on the spinal column, is linked to a specific area of our body and lives. These wheels of amazing energy line up along the central channel of our bodies, the shushumna nadi, which is the path to enlightenment. So, keeping this energy balanced will in-turn keep the physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial aspects of our lives balanced.
Heather: You recently launched some pretty cool tech. Can you tell me about this new quiz on your website and how it’s beneficial for newbies? Not to mention, it’s free!
Ashley: The Chakra Diagnostic is the PERFECT tool for anyone looking to find out if they are imbalanced. Most people who are new to chakras have no clue what it means to have imbalances, how to get balanced, or how being imbalanced could be negatively affecting their lives. Also, most people are embarrassed or don’t know what questions to ask to find the answers they are looking for. This could cause confusion, frustration, and make them overwhelmed — especially for a newbie who is just learning. So I wanted to create a solution by creating a FREE quiz that would take the guess work out of where to start. This will make it easier for people who are on their spiritual awakening journey. You can take the quiz here: Chakra Diagnostic.
Heather: You recently launched the shift kits as well, tell me all about those!
Ashley: I felt the need to create the shift kits because I wanted to intertwine spirituality with the beauty industry and the health and wellness industry. When people think of a bath or about going to the spa, it’s mostly for pleasure, relaxation, and beautification, but not for overall wellness and spiritual alignment. We are in the age of spiritual awakening, and now more than ever before people are looking for ways to get in tune with themselves and learn about themselves. The best way to do this is when we are in our most vulnerable space, in the tub. With society always being on the go and fast paced, you would be surprised how many people don’t take a bath regularly or while in the shower take time to meditate, reflect, and balance. So, the shift kits were created to help solve that problem by helping people set clear intentions, balance their chakras, manifest on purpose, and tap into their higher selves. All of the products in the kits are made from all-natural ingredients and infused with herbs and crystal charged essential oils allowing us to get in alignment with the vibrational frequency of nature.
