BY UNDERSTANDING THE CHAKRAS DEEPLY, YOU KNOW YOURSELF AND OTHERS MORE DEEPLY. HERE YOU’LL FIND PRACTICAL TOOLS TO DO BOTH.
You become able to see, hear, and feel your own and others’ dominant tendencies.
You become able to use the kind of energy, or the mix of energies, that best fits THIS situation. (This is what “balancing the chakras” usually means.
“The essence,” “the bright side,” and “the dark side” of each chakra are explained in detail. So are the past roots of blocked energies you may have in that chakra. Paths for personal and relational transformation of each chakra are described.
You develop meditative and everyday awareness faculties of “mindfulness” and “witness consciousness” that help you notice, moment by moment, what your mind is doing instead of being “lost in your thoughts.” That gives you choices about what you really want to do.
You learn what every figure and symbol in the yantra painting and drawing of each chakra means.
Practical wisdom and tools for working with each chakra include methods of meditation, relaxation, breath control, concentration, sound healing (including mantras), affirmations, and a guide for everyday actions.
You’ll discover twelve to fifteen subdimensions of each chakra, and how to move from the “obstacles” side of each subdimension to the “opportunities” side. (For example, in the third chakra, you can learn to transform an old habit of “giving in easily” to a new one of “standing up for yourself and others.” Or an old habit of being “aggressive and dominating” in ways that anger others to a “confident, capable” way of being that brings you respect. (The authors have developed unique POSSIBILITIES tables that analyzes each chakra into these subdimensions. No other book, article, audiotape, or video contains them.)
