I have been browsing books for my own personal Chakra education, and came across this book. LOVED it, and couldn't put it down. This book is a very well written fictional account, yet taps into the true meaning of the Chakras. The reviews don't exaggerate when they say that you'll laugh, cry and cheer on the characters of The Chakra Diaries. A must read for ALL '

The Chakra Diaries draws you into the life stories of nine participants in a chakra workshop, lead by Rebecca. Their life paths and Rebecca's intersect at the workshop, where they are exposed to the healing power of love. The novel contains all their individual diaries, with their human hopes, fears, emotions, challenges, triumphs, setbacks, and lives. The book is in the end a beautifully told love story, and we see the participants removing obstacles that block love and the expression of love. Interspersed within you will also find chakra visualization meditations, and insightful spiritual quotes. Reading this book brought me joy.

I was contacted by the author for an honest review during a free promotion a couple of years ago. I agreed and downloaded a copy due to being interested in spirituality and the chakras. Unfortunately, due to my rather large reading list, I have only recently been able to read it.

This is a collection of stories that were quite interesting. They are a small insight into the lives of the people who, in one way or another, found themselves learning about chakras and opening themselves to spiritual and emotional growth through the teachings of Rebecca. Each story relates to a journey taken by the various characters and the emotional or physical barriers that have weighed them down over the years, which relates to the chakras of the body. These are the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexis, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown chakras. Each chakra is represented by a colour: Red for the Root, Orange for the Sacral, Yellow for the Solar Plexis, Emerald Green for the Heart, Sky Blue for the Throat, Indigo for the Third Eye and Violet for the Crown.
The characters come from varied backgrounds and social circles. However, they all have found themselves at a crossroads in their lives. They are Estrella, Barry, Deborah, Sarah, Carol, Jean, Julie, Tony and Mark. Rebecca also has her diary entry included.
I loved meeting these characters and getting to know them better through their diary entries; they all come alive as their stories are revealed. The characters in this book take the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride as they struggle with their issues and undertake their journeys into spirituality.

However, I struggled to follow the chakra meditations at the beginning of each section. I don't know if it is just me being stubborn or lacking imagination, but I found I couldn't picture the exercises as described. I don't know if I was doing it wrong, or what the problem was. I must admit, I have even have trouble making my mind go blank by focusing on or imagining a plain white wall! Perhaps I'm too tense or self-conscious about meditating, even when I'm on my own. I have even tried listening to meditation CD's of crashing waves and whale calls in an attempt to calm the mind a few times over the years, but all that happens is that I get irritated by the repeated pattern of the sounds and end up switching it off and listening to the sound of nothing! Maybe I need to have a chakra reading to see what the problem is. I am usually open to nature spirits and believe in inner spirituality, but meditation is harder than it looks! Perhaps it's not my journey to take.

That being said, this book may help those of you who would like to learn how to meditate or unblock chakras to allow the emotional energy within the body to flow better and bring about health in both mind and body. - Lynn Worton

Chakra Diaries ISBN 9781450531917, e-book by Becca Chopra is the first of a pair of books that I have received to read in a less usual manner - the second before the first.
In this first volume, the opening material presents a primer for the uninitiated. It first defines Chakras, the energy centers of the body. Then an explanation is given as to how these energy levels may be discerned. Next, a program is set forth that is tailored to bring these energies into a harmonious balance. There follows a number of case histories or, as the author states, a "Novel Collection of Life Stories" in which the individuals employed the programs successfully. These latter are individual diary entries from those each individual was instructed to maintain following the counseling sessions. (Note: From their appearance, it is obvious these have been edited for publication.) At the end of each case history/chapter a particular meditation/treatment is offered. As presented, this book provides a modality and the case histories of a number of individuals for whom the programs proved to be most beneficial. It also contains subject matter that deals with the author's personal involvement with certain members in such a manner that some readers might construe as insensitive.
Thus, the second book, Chakra Secrets (see earlier review), addresses this matter along with providing further instructive discussion - in this manner the writing progresses through a difficult, often poignant, perhaps fulfilling, recounting of activities seemingly designed to perform multiple tasks - to serve as a catharsis, to attempt to provide a way to negate any feelings of insensitivity the previous book may have generated and to set forth evidence of an extension and growth of the author's treatment repertoire.
As an individual once involved in psychological counseling, I find this pair of books quite provocative. I am well aware of the numerous existing pitfalls in attempting to help individuals with problems and am familiar with, and have reviewed, numerous books on the subject. I am especially cognizant of the negative thoughts conjured up in the minds of many people when a suggestion is made with respect to a need for psychiatric or even psychological counseling. So, with this thought in mind, I believe that reading these two books might well prove helpful to certain types of individuals so they will seek much needed help without subjecting themselves to the otherwise `disturbing' negative connotations.

It's interesting that I read this book first, because the Chakra Secrets goes into more detail about the author. Really, do yourself a favor and purchase this book, along with Becca's The Chakra Secrets. In any case, I related to the first character of the story most of all. Some of the characters I couldn't relate to but as the old saying goes, it takes all types of vegetables to make a soup!

The aspect I took away the most, is how much spiritual trauma affects so many other areas of our lives. It made me think that the average person is so quick to judge the behaviors and the body language of others, but does anyone really know WHY a person behaves or interacts with the world as they do? Sometimes, the person who seems weird, off-balance or guarded doesn't even know why they behave as they do. That's what the Chakra Diaries sessions were all about. The sessions were about what led the participants to find energy and spiritual healing, and how they came to learn more about themselves.

This is a great book for anyone who is new to the world of Chakra energy healing. The concept is presented in a way that is very accessible and relatable. The characters are all imperfect and yet all too familiar. The stories in this book could motivate the reader want to learn more about healing their Chakras, without beating them over the head with esoteric information.

The first thing that grabbed me was the cover: all those swirls turning in one direction in harmony, it's not something I've seen before. Only later did I realize there's a hidden meaning in this cover, showing that, interwoven in the story are the lives of different characters as they attend a 12 week chakra workshop and experience a major shift in their lives. During this workshop, as characters come and leave, the reader's taught how the energy of healing and different people can leave a mark on one. To be honest, when I started this book I expected a formal handbook with explanations what chakras are, how they work, and how blockages can be removed. However, I was wrong. The Chakra Diaries offers a unique way to teach the reader how energy impacts one's life by giving peeks into the diary entries of the main characters and their lives, their experiences, disappointments and happy moments.

This is definitely different than any other book I've read. It isn't just a story; the book offers a glimpse of the different stages people go through to attain the ultimate. There is Drama. Loss. Guilt. Redemption. Love. Strength. And in the end there's happiness and forgiveness. All in all, this is a well written, entertaining, and thought provoking read I enjoyed.

All of the characters in this lovely book are so well developed and so real with all of their passions, hopes, dreams, desires, strengths and frailties, you keep thinking about them long after you have finished reading The Chakra Diaries. Becca Chopra has creatively crafted her colorful story so the reader is not just entertained, but also learns something about chakras in the balance.

The theme of the novel centers on Rebecca and her chakra workshop. Each of the seven major chakras is highlighted through the journaling of one or more of the workshop participants. So as you move through the book and each chakra level, you not only witness the physical, emotional and soulful experiences of each of the characters, but also benefit from the chakra-balancing insights and advice that Rebecca offers them.

I love that Becca used diaries as the medium for telling her tale, because they are so conducive to uncensored, tell-it-like-it-is, from-the-heart writing. And believe me, in The Chakra Diaries they deliver just that. Read it for yourself and enjoy!

To be honest I don’t know what to make of this book. I liked learning more about chakras. I enjoyed the individual stories and the healing of the chakras. The experiences were wonderfully told and allowed me to gain a bit of insight into the people.

My issue lies with Becca. When I got to one point in the book I was so angry at her that I wanted to slam the book by either not rating it or giving it a low rating. To me, what she did as a spiritual leader of sorts, had me so disappointed that I wondered if any of us were infallible to the whims of humanity.

Of course I then had to look at myself and wonder why I was being so judgmental about someone else’s tale. It’s because I’d gotten so engrossed in the story that I empathized with the characters. Now that’s some good story telling. So here I am reviewing the book.

Granted I really wish things had turned out differently for one of the characters and that Becca had handled the situation better, but that’s life, right?

The stories that Becca tells in The Chakra Diaries are both common and enlightening. We've all heard them, perhaps even experienced them - the unrequited love, the cancer diagnosis and the betrayal of those closest to us; what makes them stand out in this book though is the way that they are each woven into a stronger theme of positive change and personal development. Each story is complete in it's own right, yet each forms a part of the whole novel. Each story talks eloquently about the chakra's and shares a meditation you can use, yet each also forms a part of a longer, stronger meditation you could use to balance all the chakra's. The stories are heartwarming and accessible, which where I think their strength lies.

I loved this book. I loved everything from the cover art to the intertwined stories about the participants of Becca Chopra's Chakra Workshop, and the spiritual tips throughout the pages. I simply could not put it down. As the author of another book about chakras (CHAKRA POWER! How to Fire Up Your Energy Centers to Live a Fuller Life), I felt intuitively drawn to this book and immediately aligned with the energy, the stories, and the honest way it was presented. Reading the personal accounts of each of the people in this book allows you to see pieces of yourself and your own journey, and fully understand that we are truly connected and in this together. Becca Chopra, kudos to you. Many blessings.
