Chakra system discussion in modern life

by AlanK on Aug 23, 2007

This is one of the best books on the subject. It works well for beginners primarily because the author takes the trouble to start with examples that are easily related to. One day when she was sick, she awoke to a plate at her bedside with piece of toast that was inconsistently buttered . This was done by her five year old, remembering what she did for him when he was sick. She writes that she knew in that moment that his heart chakra had opened. The reader will easily distinguish which areas of his or her own chakra system are developed or under-developed. If one finds oneself grossly out of balance (often due to family and cultural preference of reinforcement), there are suggested exercises and therapies to undertake. Several tables, including figure drawings of the posture of the body in describing excesses, and bibliographies for each of the chakra areas are provided. For clarity of thought, in theory and practicality, and thoroughness of (a multi-disciplinary) discussion, this work can't be beat and is ground-breaking in its complementary synthesis of Eastern and Western understanding of human energy.
