Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Your chakras are integral to every part of your being. First identified in ancient India (the word chakra derives from the Sanskrit for wheel), they are the body?s energy centers through which the life force flows, helping you to maintain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance. The Book of Chakras explores the nature of these ?spinning wheels? of energy, explains where they are located, and tells you how to use them most effectively.
  • Harness your chakras through meditation and visualization
  • Learn techniques and exercises most appropriate to each part of your body
  • Master the principles of chakra healing

    Format: Paperback
    As someone who knew nothing about Chakras prior to reading this book, I found it to be an easy-to-read, general introduction.

    The most striking thing about the books is its aesthetic appeal, which is refreshing, - and appropriate considering it's mandate to impact us spiritually. Its pages are large, thick and colorful and the material is an interweaving of photos, diagrams and artistically presented text. I point this out because it is such a striking contrast to most books these days, crammed with small, nondescript black and white text on cheap paper. I actually found that I enjoyed just holding the book and flipping through it to soak in the visual aspect.

    As for the content, as a beginner I can't speak to it's accuracy but it struck me as a light, easy-to-read and apply overview for the spiritual seeker who is knew to the concept of energy centers in the body. The author stays away from religious discussions and instead provides basic, and somewhat generic information on each of the 7 main Chakras. For each Chakra the author provides affirmations, a meditation and a questionnaire (which sounds hokey, but which I actually found quite useful).

    My biggest gripe is that not enough instruction or suggestion was given regarding how to apply this information to my life. Should I meditate on only one Chakra at a time? How long should I meditate on a particular Chakra? Am I supposed to "feel" something and if so, how long does it take? What should I do next?

    Also, the author provided a variety of informational tidbits (neatly organized) about each Chakra such as the color, shape, crystal, musical note, astrological sign, internal organ, positive and negative archetypes, etc.

    Having read quite a few books on Chakras I would have to say that this is a really good book for learning the basics of the Chakra system and how it applies to you. It is definitely the most colourfully illustrated book on Chakras out there, but there are better ones that go allot deeper into how Chakras work and how to work with them.

    This is a great beginners guide to the Chakra system. Colorful pictures, concise information, layed out in an easy to read and understandable fashion.

    A great resource when you want to know more about a specific chakra and it's attributes.

    I love this book!

    I absolutely love this book. Very easy to read and understand. Lots of great information about chakras. I am a Reiki Master and give this to all my Reiki I students. I also refer to this to show my Reiki clients areas of concern. Great reference.

    This is the first review that I've written. I'm writing it because I'm new to chakras and this book is so informative. Each chakra is explained well, but I especially love the meditations that are provided. It usually takes me a while to go to sleep at night, but the Heart Chakra meditation resonated with me and relaxed me so completely that I fell asleep immediately afterward. I highly recommend this book to everyone interested in learning about the chakra energy and balancing.

    This is an excellent book if you want to learn about the Chakra's. It is easily understood and is not too heady. I highly recommend it.

    Format: Paperback
    My friend lent me this book and I got so much out of it. There is a lot of wisdom in it for balancing yourself or figuring out where you need balance even if you just look at it from a psychological point of view. The author even includes archetypes, like the warrior vs. the servant, etc to better understand yourself. She also includes some very simple and easy to do meditations. I hate meditating but these were really simple, and I feel more relaxed after doing them so they work. Anything that promotes relaxation while being present with your body in this crazy world is a plus. Also the affirmations are a short little exercise that can make you feel good too. You won't know unless you try!

    What's also great about the book is every chakra has a page dedicated to little factoids about it like the angels associated with it, color, musical note, glandular connection and much more. It's written simply and concisely, and she doesn't waste any words.
