This wonderful book is an exhaustive guide to harmonising the body’s energy vortices with music, colours, gemstones, fragrances, breathing techniques, reflex zone massage plus meditation. The book is very comprehensive in cope, dealing with the full energy system and the subtle bodies: ethereal, astral, mental and spiritual, while explaining the function and purpose of the charkas. It explains how blockages develop in the charkas and how to eliminate them, before treating each of the seven chakras in detail.
The astrological associations are dealt with and various therapies for cleansing and activating the chakras are covered in great detail. These include sound, colour, gemstone, and aroma therapies plus colour meditation and different forms of yoga. In addition, there are chapters on chakra breathing, reflex zone massage and physical exercises for releasing blocked energies. The appendix includes tables on the charkas and their associated factors like symbols, colours, elements, hormones, musical tones and aromas.
The text is enlivened with many black and white figures, illustrations and tables, and the book concludes with a short bibliography. The Chakra-handbook is the most comprehensive work on the subject that I have encountered, providing practical information in a simple, easily understood manner. I highly recommend it to practitioners of esoteric healing and to all readers who are interested in familiarising themselves with their own energy bodies for a more fulfilling and abundant life.
