Summary of the Book:

Tap into the nine major chakras that affect your power, health, and well-being. The Chakra Handbook is the essential portable reference for the experienced energy worker, as well as the perfect introduction for anyone just starting out.

First discussed in ancient Hindu texts and studied for thousands of years in numerous spiritual traditions, including acupuncture, meditation, and yoga, chakras are the power centers connecting your physical body and the world of energy. By tapping into the power of your chakras, you can live a healthier, balanced, and more abundant life.

Athena Perrakis, leading metaphysical teacher and creator of the world’s largest online metaphysical resource website,, has created a modern guide to the ancient practice of working with the chakras. Unlike most other guides, which only address the seven body chakras, The Chakra Handbook addresses the nine major chakras you can tap into to balance, heal, and manifest. This guide explains how and why different crystals, aromatherapyessential oils, and sacred plants help to support each chakra.

Each chapter of The Chakra Handbook also includes magical exercises for accessing the energy of each chakra, including meditations, journal exercises, and working with goddesses and spirit guides. Readers will even learn how to create a dedicated chakra altar, a mandala, chakra-specific incense blends, as well as other inspired projects. Lavishly photographed and illustrated, this guide promises to be an essential volume for beginners and experienced energy workers alike.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have read a few books like this and few come close to this one. I love how the book is set up. That you get journal exercises and all the crystal information. The illustrations were nice and it was easy to follow and that is what made the use of this book fun and enjoyable. I enjoyed that each chakra had its own chapter and that made it easy to focus on each one and give its own spiritual justice. 

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
