The correlation between psychological theories of the last 100 years & the chakra energy system which Celeste Mattingly
defines in this book are theories I've never heard before. Anywhere! That is a major appeal to me-concepts new & groundbreaking in my quest for balance.
There's meditations,exercises, a place for journaling & several other suggestions for clearing,focusing & energizing ones' thought process.
I've found the contents of this workbook very helpful on a daily basis to stay centered & open to what life offers.
One of amazing features of this book is how Celeste Mattingly wittingly explains the evolution of traditional therapy and its correlation with each chakra as they themselves are an evolution starting from chakra one on up to the seventh chakra. This interconnectedness between traditional psychology and the subtle body of the chakras is told by one who has prolific experiential history in both subjects, and I say this with the knowledge of personally knowing the author, Celeste Emelia Mattingly.
As myself a former client for twelve years with six differing traditional therapists (Celeste never being my therapist, but a colleague) and an ongoing daily meditation routine going on eleven years that incorporates chakra absorption, I must say that Celeste's book not only confirmed what I have experienced in my own awakening, but also brought to light a deeper understanding into why chakra meditation is of exceptional importance.
In her book `Celestial Psychology', I passionately feel Celeste Mattingly confirms the underlying principle and goal of all spiritual practice and tradition, and that is love. The sentiment inherent in all her suggested exercises is love. The sentiment behind her words describing the differing ideologies and concepts is expressed with love. With love as the nucleus in `Celestial Psychology' I could only imagine the positive effect Celeste's book is having and will have for student and teacher, client and therapist, or for anyone who decides to read this publication.

In the last chapter of her book, Celeste Mattingly introduces us to what she calls "The Fifth Wave." She writes, " Thus, declaring Conscious Evolutionary Psychology as the fifth wave of psychology provides another vehicle of change necessary to carry us into this next phase of human development. Whether you are a professional in the healing arts or a layperson, I have faith that you now share my conviction that we must elevate our minds and bodies to spirit in order to survive - individually and collectively. We must allow and encourage the imaginal cells among us to thrive. We all must carry the message and manifest the reality that human beings are capable of change beyond our wildest dreams by raising consciousness."
Celeste goes on to write, "Most important, we must strive to cooperate more fully, love more completely, and care more deeply for each other, ourselves, and Gaia, our Mother Earth."
What makes Celeste's words tremendously potent is her sincerity and dedication regarding how she lives her life. Her inner love shines forth and spreads across the 184 pages of her publication: `Celestial Psychology - A workbook of Chakras, Psychological Theory & Conscious Evolution'. If you want to free yourself of self-defeating behaviors, if you need release from the weight of the world, if you desire love, peace, and harmony to be your reality as you walk this earthly existence and beyond, then reading what `Celestial Psychology' has to offer could make that happen for you. And sometimes, the only way to know is to take the plunge.
"Celestial Psychology®: A Workbook of Chakras,Psychological Theory & Conscious Evolution"
by Celeste Emelia Mattingly
I'm so glad I found Celeste and the 'Conscious Evoluntionaries Ignite' group. I joined Celeste at a time when I was struggling to find my spiritual path. The love and attention practiced so naturally gave me increased clarity and the confidence to move forward with my Reiki practice. If you can't make the meetings, there is now a book to guide you on your spiritual journey.
When I opened "Celestial Psychology" at random, my first thought was, "Finally, everything in one place!" The extensive information on the Chakras makes this book an excellent resource for personal transformation. I'm using Celestial Psychology to rethink ways to help my Reiki clients before, during, and after a session. I'm adding to my collection of stones knowing I can relate their qualities to my work. Color coding -brilliant! Looking at the positive and negative influences, very helpful. The structure is excellent.
The relationship of chakras and psychology caught my attention. The writing was clear and gave many examples. Because I do not have enough expertise to compare schools of psychology, I rode the waves of my own learning curve. Perhaps, others feel this way. May you experience the gift of resilience that comes with seeing the world with new eyes.
If you are an energy worker, this is one book you should add to your library.
