So with all the ratchet television (we admit that we get caught up in it sometimes but not often) it is refreshing that one of our favorite television networks, OWN’s Saturday night line up is awesome. With one of there reality shows, entertainment upcoming power couple, Flex and Shanice, last week’s show heated up a little bit with family member Ruba throwing a party and getting arrested on air (Ruba’s Party Lands Him In Jail). Although that was a juicy moment, the moment that warmed our hearts was when Shanice was given some constructive criticism and confidence boost to get in the studio and write a song. This was a great moment to see Shanice get into a position of creativity, passion and reignite her writing ability. It has been some years since we have heard from the songbird and her memorable single, ‘I Love Your Smile’ in the 90s and with the show, this is a great way for the fan to connect with the artist. We can forget that celebrities are people and the go through the ups and downs, rock bottoms and ultimate highs but the nature of being able to overcome adversity is what makes the show a must watch on Saturday Nights with your own family. Flex and Shanice have obviously experienced some major rock bottoms but in this episode, you get to see how they are climbing to the top and seeing that success is not that far off. How beautiful is to see a couple support each other, keep their family in tact, survive the drama and still be in love with one another? How we hope this show inspires other couples to go the distance but learning to work together!!!
The heart chakra is the fourth chakra of the seven chakras; the wellspring of love, warmth, compassion, and joy is located in the center of the chest at the heart level. I would say this is my favorite chakra and have been really opening up my heart for more compassion towards others but more towards myself.
I can say that when I first did a yoga routine geared towards opening up the heart chakra, I realized that I have walls surrounding my heart and it was a humbling and awakening experience. So much resentment and judgement about failing relationships with boyfriends or with my family, doing the yoga brought things into focus for me and I began my true healing journey.
Let’s see what Faith can help us do to open up our HEART….CHAKRA!!!
It’s Janet, Ms. Jackson if you Nasty!!! We are so excited about the release of Janet’s newest single, No Sleep and we especially love that she got J. Cole for the remix version (check out the simplistic but delivering No Sleeep video)! Everyone on this planet, in this universe should know the Entertainment Icon/Legend Janet Damita Jo Jackson and if you don’t, you really need to get dialed in!!! With the anticipation of her eleventh album dropping in the fall, Ms. Jackson is heading back on road in August with the ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ and it is already selling out tickets in major cities. Did we expect anything less? Uh nnnooo! Don’t Sleep on Janet, she still got it!
Below is the tour dates for the US and Canada for 2015
We know we are a week late from her untimely death on July 23rd but this post had to be done. SocietyKeeper absolutely loves the music Amy Winehouse left behind for us to enjoy. Amy became legendary the minute she came out with her first mainstream album. Her timeless and vintage soulful voice was so reminiscent of the legendary singers from the 40’s and 50’s era like Billie Holiday, Lena Horne and Frank Sinatra. The release of the documentary, Amy hitting theaters on July 3rd making it almost 4 years after her death, we honor this beautifully soul who died so tragically and publicly. Be sure to watch the trailer below as well as a few videos that we love. Amy was respected in the industry by so many people and her story is one that anyone who aspires to enter into the industry or just having any issues with substance abuse, to please seek or take help to get back to a place of loving yourself and healing. Until the end, Amy sang even with a circle of people willing to throw her into the throws of drugs and alcohol. We have not gotten a chance to see the documentary but we would love to hear from those who have seen the film. We have provided links to her website where you can donate to The Amy Winehouse Foundation as well article post you can read about Amy on US Weekly Interview with Kelly Osbourne as She Remembers Amy Winehouse and The Guardian Interview with Mark Ronson about Amy Film
Legends Live Forever and Amy Winehouse definitely earned that title!
The third chakra of the seven chakras is the center of willpower. While the Sacral chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment, the third chakra is all about the perception of who you are. The gift of this chakra is sensing your personal power, being confident, responsible, and reliable.The third chakra is the center of your self-esteem, your willpower, self-discipline, as well as warmth in your personality.
Let’s face it, many of us struggle with the third chakra. With the media pushing messages of perfection, we forget about being ourselves and having the confidence to create the life that is our own. Sure it, we all want the same things like love, happiness, professional success, family and great friends but sometimes we forget to check in with ourselves and being responsible for our own consciousness and perceptions.
Let’s check in with Faith as she shows us how to awaken and be more conscious of this chakra and staying balance.
How are you guys doing on tapping in and restoring your chakras…..
