By now, most of us have heard about chakras and a variety of energy healing modalities and energy medicine therapies. They have all made their way into the forefront of alternative treatments and with great success. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean we have to seek out professionals in energy medicine if we are interested in or curious about energy healing. There is an abundance of self-help books on the market and new ones are continually being released. I love energy healing books and here are my two newest treasures.

Each of the chapters deals with a specific topic and the content focuses on awareness. You are guided to feel your way through the pages and hone in on your breath and various areas in your body. You will be taught a variety of techniques that are simple, yet effective. Plus, at the end of each chapter, you’ll find several exercises that will deepen your understanding of that topic. You’ll get to test out some breathing exercises, Reiki, Shiatsu, Kabbalah, Shamanism, yoga, dance, seeing auras, meditation, clearing, spiritual cooking, office magic, and more.
It’s fun to go through each chapter and learn energy techniques that will have a positive impact on our bodies, homes, our lives, and the world. It’s a beautiful book that divulges so many energy secrets to clear our paths, live in harmony with ourselves and the world, and how to submerse ourselves in pure joy.
Sacred Chakras, Understanding Your Chakras, and How to Harness Their Power is an introductory guide to our energy centers. It will teach readers how to balance these energy centers and find new dimensions of healing and growth. These energetic pathways are the keys to our emotional stability, physical health, and mental clarity. I’ve read that there are actually 114 chakras, this book focuses on the 7 main chakras located along the spine. The book is divided into 7 chapters and one directory.
*Chakras and the body
* Ayurvedic energy flow and kundalini yoga
* Meditations and mantras
* Astrology and the chakras
* Diet, teas and tinctures
* Reiki subtle energy therapy and essential oils
* Cyrstal, color and sound therapies
* Chakra Directory
Crown chakra – Sahasrara
Third eye chakra – Ajna
Throat chakra – Vishuddha
Heart chakra – Anahata
Solar Plexus chakra – Manipura
Sacral chakra – Swadhisthana
Root chakra – Muladhara
Chakra is Sanskrit for wheel. If we are in good health, our chakras vortexes will spin clockwise as the energy travels the nadis. But, I’ve read that some can spin counter-clockwise reflective on various nuances. Regardless, our chakras can become out of balance and blocked and that can significantly affect our health. The first chapter walks you through the 7 chakras – where they are located (diagram), the organs and body parts associated with it, and the color assigned to it. But, the nervous, musculoskeletal, and endocrine systems are affected by all 7 chakras.
All the chapters highlight practices that will balance our chakras. These include kundalini yoga, meditations, mantras, astrology, diet, Reiki, crystals, and more. Did you know each chakra is associated with a specific astrological sign and its ruling planet? Did you know that each chakra is associated with several crystals as well as specific colors?
Diving into the Chakra Directory, you’ll get in-depth knowledge about each chakra. You’ll see it’s unique symbol, learn what the symptoms are if its unbalanced, how to treat an over and underactive chakra, the organs, systems, glands and other body parts associated with it, what yoga poses are good for that chakra, recommended meditations and mantras, foods, Reiki positions, and what crystals and colors will benefit that specific chakra.
