A Couple of Points...
on November 21, 2004
I'd just like to make a couple of observations about this CD:
1) The CD is most useful as a supplement to Wayne Dyer's book "Manifest Your Destiny". The book gives a much more complete explaination of the "Ah Meditation" and how to pratice it. Given the amount of additional information in the book, I don't feel like the CD really stands on its own. The book is excellent, by the way, and if you've gone so far as to buy the CD, definitely check out the book.
2) The "Ah Meditation" involves focusing on two to the body's energy centers, also known as chakras. If you are new to the concept of an energy body, seperate from your physical body, the cd is likely to confuse you. There's no explaination of chakras here, just the assumption that the listener has some foreknowledge, and even then it can be confusing. Specifically, Dr. Dyer refers to the "root chakra" and the "sex center" interchangeably. My understanding is that these are not the same: the root chakra is the first major chakra located at the base of the spine, thus it's name. The sex center, is definitely the second chakra. So, this inconsistancy in naming the chakra, without offering a precise physical location, is a bit confusing. The book does not clear this up either.
I think it's safe to assume that it is the second chakra, the sex center and not the root chakra, that Dr. Dyer means. Between these two chakras, the second a more logical point of focus: it is clearly the center of our sexual energy.
The other chakra involved in the 'Ah Meditation' (besides the second one, or 'sex center') is the third eye, or sixth chakra. Dr. Dyer does give the location of this chakra so there is no confusion about where to focus.
