Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

I had been looking to publish a book like this for a long time. The chakras are part of our spiritual bodies. I wanted to have a dedicated, focused book on the chakras that was aimed at beginners and people who want to complete their knowledge of the chakras. Well, this is it!
Often the chakras are described in books, but this book goes to the next level. It describes what you can do to balance the energies of your chakras and tells you what the results of that balancing will be.
The exercises are so simple it is amazing that more people aren't using them. Are you feeling insecure because of unpaid bills? The insecure feelings are a first chakra problem. Exercise three tells you how to overcome the feeling. It involves a special way of walking in a park. That's all! But it leaves you more secure and more ready to deal with the problem.
Do you feel insecure about a romance? The real problem here is with security, not love. Exercise eight tells you how to deal with it. Do you feel isolated and ill at ease? Exercise ten provides a beautiful meditation to help you overcome your feelings of isolation.
This is the book that gives you the information you need to know about the chakras. It has the facts, the color correspondences, the purposes, and the methods. I know you're going to love it. Chakras for Beginners is practical and can lead you to an even deeper study of the chakras.
As a bonus, the author has included a section of ten short essays that will stimulate you. They include "Vows and the Chakras," "Transmuting Energy," and Kundalini." This book covers an important subject, and your are going to find that it is vital for your library.

From the Back Cover

You may think that difficult situations and emotions you experience are caused by other people or random events. This book will convince you that inner imbalance is not caused by situations in the outer world -- instead, your imbalances create the situations that interfere with your sense of well-being and peace.

Chakras for Beginners explains how to align your energy on many levels to achieve balance from the inside out. In everyday terms, you will learn the function of the seven body-spirit energy vortexes called chakras. Practical exercises, meditations, and powerful techniques for working with your energy flow will help you overcome imbalances that block your spiritual progress.
-- Explore the balanced and unbalanced expressions of each chakra's energies: survival, sexuality, power, love, creativity, intuition, and spirituality
-- Discover colors and crystals that activate each chakra
-- Practice spiritual exercises, visualizations, and meditations that bring your energies into balance

David Pond's book is an inspired text with highly practical information. Just like his other book "The Metaphysical Handbook", he provides the reader with rich information on the history and background of chakras while making this ancient healing system apply directly to the current cultural climate. He guides the reader playfully and honestly through each chapter in the ascending order of the chakras so the reader can build up with useful exercises and hands on material. I have studied chakras for many years in my work with clients in the health care field as a bodyworker and educator and found that David's book to be very accessible and a pleasure to use personally. I have numerous clients who have used the techniques in the book as well and report positive results. For anyone interested in working with yoga, energy systems or just want to feel better this is a must read!

David Pond says that "understanding the chakras is one of the most effective means of accessing the various levels of consciousness available to you." In Chakras for Beginners: A Guide to Balancing Your Chakra Energies, he describes the chakras and what it takes to keep them functioning properly.
Chakras are energy centers. Pond calls them the "batteries for the various levels of your life energy." Their source is the universal life force. Of the many chakras we each have, seven are considered as primary. These seven are in a straight line along the length of the spine. Any blocks or imbalances in the chakras can result in disease or emotional difficulties.
After discussing chakras in general, Pond devotes a chapter to each of the seven primary energy centers. He first describes the "drive" or purpose of each chakra. For example, the first chakra is concerned with survival, while the fourth chakra deals with the quest for love. He then discusses all the ways in which the chakra can be out of balance, including problems related to too much energy as well as difficulties stemming from too little energy. After explaining how to balance the chakra, Pond discusses how to keep it in balance.
Each chapter includes exercises designed to balance and maintain the individual chakras. He finishes with a section on special tips and techniques for activating the chakras. He also explains how colors and crystals can affect the chakras.
The last part of the book is a collection of essays about chakras. In those, he discusses subjects like kundalini, spirituality, and transmuting negative energy into a positive force. He also includes several meditations.

I really enjoyed this book. The author, David Pond, clearly knows his subject and with ease takes you on a journey through each chakra. As well as giving the traditional vital statistics for each, he augments this information with psychological, emotional, and intuitive perspectives. Accompanying each section are exercises and meditations for nourishing and balancing these energy centers. This book is well integrated, clear, and elicits a strong sense of how important self knowledge of the chakras is to our individual vitality, our society, and our planet as a whole. I thoroughly enjoyed the essays towards the end of the book. These tied it all together and gave perspectives on how chakra energy is utilized at every moment of every day, at every level of our being. This book made the chakras come alive for me. They are no longer just a great metaphysical idea, but an integral element of our process of being. Thank you, David. Good work.

I have practiced yoga regularly for several years now, and this has led to an interest in exploring the chakras, the seven "energy centers" of the body. I was able to obtain some basic information online, but I wanted a book which would provide more details as well as exercises--hopefully incorporating yoga--which would focus on balancing the energy of the chakras. Happily, this book met my needs very well.

After offering an overview of the chakras and the importance of keeping them balance, author David Pond addresses each of the seven chakras individually. In particular, he describes both the balance and unbalanced perspectives of each chakra as well as offers several exercises both for connecting with that chakra and awakening the energy contained within. Some of the exercises do contain suggestions for yoga--i.e., performing tree pose to attain balance--but most of them are more meditative in nature.

In the second half of the book, Pond presents a selection of "Essays," which are basically short chapters (2-3 pages on average) about the relationship between the chakras and other issues, including the ego, vows, negative energy, visualization, and other similar topics. I found this section to be less helpful, as here, Pond's tendency towards new-age thinking (he is an astrologer by profession, after all) became a bit too much for my tastes. However, he concludes the book with additional exercises, meditations, and a chakra chart, all of which I found useful. All-in-all, this is a very nice introductory book about chakras which provides good basic information as well as easy-to-follow meditative exercises.
