Awakening The Chakras
The Seven Energy Centers in Your Daily life
by Victor Daniels, Kooch N. Daniels, and Pieter Weltevrede
There are a lot of books and courses about the chakras and rightly so. Working with these energy centers is at the base of spiritual growth and all forms of healing. Awakening the Chakras is an in-depth guide by longtime students of the late tantric scholar, philosopher, and temple artist Sri Harish Johari. The book explains the essence of each of the seven chakras and gives practical tools to work with the energetic “wheels of light.”
After an initial introduction to the concepts of the chakras and how working with them can impact our lives, the authors walk us through each one giving the correspondences for each: key phrase, physical location, endocrine gland, astrological link, day of the week, element, sense, Sanskrit derivation, massage point, and Leela Game of Self-Knowledge (this is explained in the book). The opportunities and obstacles for each is given as well as the ways to work with each chakra.
There are some beautiful color plates in the book and what’s great fun is the main areas of the drawings are also provided as black and white line drawings that can be copied and colored in to help facilitate visualization and connection with each energy center.
Whether you’ve done a lot of chakra work or you’re new to it, this is an amazing book that will serve you well in not only in learning about the chakra system but also how to integrate these energies into daily living.
