Becca begins by pointing out the breakdown in the conventional American diet, which is loaded with sugar, processed foods, GMOs and soda. Then she points the way to a better way of eating that actually nourishes body, mind and spirit. She also speaks at length about how stress and your own insecurities about your body can stand in the way of you reaching your health and weight goals and how you can lift those blocks.
Next, taking you on a systematic journey through your chakras, Becca introduces each of these seven major energy centers to you and helps you to pinpoint your own weaknesses and imbalances. She then offers a wealth of information for you to use in nourishing your physical body and revitalizing your chakra system.
The book ends with appendixes that include a "Chakra Yoga Flow" sequence to balance your seven chakras and also "The Circle of Joy Breath" that integrates Body, Mind and Spirit. The instructions are clear and detailed enough so that even a beginner can complete the sequences.
All in all, this delightful, easy-to-read guidebook is a feast for the senses served up in Becca's expressive writing style, complemented by beautiful photography of food recipes and yoga poses.
~ Mary Jo Shaffer, Co-Owner of Heart Projects and author of Rainbow Eyes: Chakramid Reflections
The author did an excellent job in presenting comprehensive set of information on balancing each chakra: first by examining the emotional components, then by providing the most desirable foods and meditation mantra pertinent to specific chakra, along with the relevant yoga postures and exercises. Interesting recipes with pictures are added bonuses.
Particularly interesting was the notion of let go of self-criticism when it comes to the issue of weight. In essence, the author stresses the importance of re-establishing the relationship with ourselves by cultivating self-love which is the basis of true healing.
In short, in Chopra’s book, the supreme yoga is a culinary art.
But the book is not just for yogis. Chopra says people who struggle with seesaw dieting, self-love, relationship, success and prosperity issues can find clues to chakra imbalances in these life problems. “You can thank your body,” she writes, “for giving you the clues you need to reach for your perfect self.”
Connecting the dots between the energy source of problems and the behaviors that either help or hinder their resolution, Chopra offers simple, fun lifestyle solutions to reverse the disease-ridden trends of modern dining. Color-coding foods to reflect desired energy states, yoga poses to stimulate vitality, and affirmations to affirm your True Self are easy to find and use in the well-organized book designed to help you "feed your chakras with high quality energy.”
Part I highlights the saboteurs of your health and weight that you need to avoid. Stress and pushing down uncomfortable emotions are two of the main menaces, but sugar, GMO foods, saturated fats and MSG all warrant abstinence. In Part II, you learn to identify if a chakra is out of balance and exactly what to do about it. “Eating a rainbow of colors is important to keep the chakras balanced,” explains Chopra.
Besides specific food combinations, exercises and yoga postures, undemanding suggestions like incorporating light exercise after a meal – “aiding your digestion as well as lightening your stress load” – are included.
I have long admired the natural spirit and articulate science in Becca Chopra’s work. Her previous books – The Chakra Diaries, Chakra Secrets, and Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life – show an uncommon nuance and perspective in her ability to communicate the power of subtle energies in concrete terms. Now, her passionate, clear aesthetic shows how one can make an art out of eating and make food for the soul out of art.
Together with brilliant color photos, Chopra’s text arouses the hunger for good food, not empty calories, making this one of my favorite kitchen books, almost good enough to eat!
