Review

"Sonia Choquette is not only a master spiritual teacher, she is a teacher who shares her recipe for living in a series of clear, simple, doable steps." --Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

"When you balance your seven energy centers, you reclaim your natural rights and reestablish your natural order. You begin to undo the damage that was caused by living your life backward, from the head first, forgetting the body and spirit altogether. As with everything in nature, if your life isn't supported by a grounded source of energy, it will wither and lose its vitality. As you learn about the chakras, you will discover that balancing them isn't particularly hard, especially if you think of it as a process of not just living your life, but actually loving your life." -- From the Introduction

How can we balance our time and energy when our days are so hectic? How can we find harmony in mind, body, and spirit? In True Balance, renowned intuitive and spiritual healer Sonia Choquette presents a step-by-step workbook for finding balance within our seven essential energy centers, or chakras. Drawing upon her deep personal experience and practice, she offers a wise and down-to-earth guide to achieving harmony. With supportive questionnaires, practical advice, and many specific remedies, Choquette leads us to a balanced life filled with creativity and blessings.

You don't have to understand the mysteries of modern mechanics to know when your car needs a tune up. Likewise, you don't have to be a mideastern guru to know you are not in "True Balance", or to learn from this book.
If you ask yourself why do you feel "blah" more often than not, or why you can't seem to focus, or why you say, "Yes", when you want to say, "No", or why life seems to be such an uphill battle, this book is for you. Finally, here is a book that really is a "Common Sense Guide for Renewing Your Spirit".
If you read "True Balance" with the intent of at least giving it a try, you can not help but align your energy centers. You don't have to understand how it works. Just be assured that it will.
Sonia Choquette takes you through explanations, examples, and experiences which will help you develope a solid foundation, vitality, the sovereignty of knowing who you are and that you belong, an open loving heart, and the ability to express yourself. You will begin to truly see the world around you in all its complexities and open your crown chakra to the peace and guidance of your Creator.
She does not tell you what you SHOULD feel. She gives you steps that, if followed, will allow you TO FEEL. If you are even slightly "out of kilter", this book is the guide which will give you "True Balance" and the joy and peace which naturally follow.

True Balance is Truly Sensational!
This book is a must read for anyone on a personal journey of growth or for anyone trying to stay balanced in our fast paced lives. The book focuses on balancing the seven chakras. Even though the term chakra is used, the book is very much written in our modern day western language.
For those individuals who closely follow the chakras and use Eastern philosophy techniques such as yoga, etc. I believe the book speaks one to one with these individuals. The chakras are familiar to these individuals and the examples, "to do" lists, etc. are items which I believe can easily be related to.
For those individuals who are unfamiliar with chakras and simply want to balance there lives amongst the incredible number and velocity of items spinning in our lives, the book also speaks to them one on one because of the basic tools that are used to help balance the energy centers. Even if people don't necessarily believe in the chakras, the book is totally for them. There are questions, check lists and to do lists through out the book. They are simple, easy to understand and will likely result in people looking at there body, mind and spirit in new exciting ways. Some of the to do things include taking epsom salt baths, using essential oils, rubbing Vick's Vapor Rub on your feet followed with a good pair of socks put on your feet before going to bed.
Again the author's wisdom and warmth shows as pen was put to paper, resulting in this book. The week of this book release, I had the wonderful experience of attending a 2 1/2 hour overview of the book, hosted by Sonia and her assistants. It was an incredible first class experience. Again I believe the book is a must read and if you ever get the opportunity to attend one of Sonia's workshops, do it because I guarantee your life will be forever changed!

This is a fantastic book, both for those who are conscious of their chakras and for those who are unfamiliar with energy work. Choquette lays everything out in a simple, gentle, yet very thorough way that is a pleasure to read and absorb. She writes as if she is a kind friend, speaking with each person individually. If you are looking for a more serious, in-depth work, I recommend Caroline Myss' "Anatomy of the Spirit". If you want to learn more about the chakra system, how it affects you, and how you can effect positive change and achieve more spiritual balance without getting a degree in theology or spirituality, then this is an excellent book.

The first thing that caught my eye about this book was the title. True balance-I had lost my balance literally a year back and every since then have been plagued by leg problems.
This book helped me realize I had been missing the warning signs of an unbalanced first chakra. I could probably have prevented my injury if I hadn't been so mule headed and had had this book earlier. Sonia's tips and suggestions on how to get in touch with my first chakra are easy things to do, there's nothing so hard that I can't incorporate it into every day living. The check list on each chakra really can help tell where one stands on each chakra. Thanks to her book I've spotted a problem with my throat chakra (the chakra center that deals with speaking and communication) before it became a big problem like my root chakra (heck, I quess I'm learning!). This is a neat book with tons of ways to balance each chakra and her Psychic Pathway book is just as good.

I was looking for an easy to ready book on the chakras and came across this one. This one really demystified it all for me - very to the point, easy to understand. There is one chapter on each chakra and in each chapter there is a discussion of what the chakra representes, a question section to see how balanced that particular chakra is for you, and exercises to either reinforce or rebalance that particular chakra. Nice booklist at the end too.
