Overview

You are an energy being. Your thoughts, feelings, and actions are energy events—to know who you are and why you think, feel, and act the way you do, you must know yourself energetically.

Each of the seven chakras of the human body processes and distributes energy. The chakras transform the energy into sensations comprehensible to us, namely, thought, emotion, and physical sensation. Human problems—spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical—are caused by the inability to radiate energy freely due to blockages in our energy systems.

This practical, easy-to-use self help book by renowned healer Keith Sherwood teaches you how to work with your chakras to release energy blockages for improved health. You’ll learn techniques for increasing your level of energy, and for transmuting unhealthy energies into healthy ones, to bring you back into harmony with yourself, your loved ones, and the world in which you live.

An excellent how-to book of healing. Learn how your body and mind function so you can overconme negative programming an become a free human being.

Editorial Reviews

Internet Book Watch
Now in its twelfth printing, Chakra Therapy, by Keith Sherwood, has proved itself as an essential guide for healers everywhere. Sherwood, a former minister, has trained with masters the world over and made the study of healing and human energy his life's work. He now teaches "a synthesis of Western therapeutic techniques, Taoist Yoga, and Tantra." Sherwood says that "human problems on all levels of causation--spiritual, mental, emotional and physical--are caused by contraction, the inability to radiate energy freely due to blockages in the human energy system." His book is designed to teach people how to release those blockages and fully utilize all the body's energy to heal themselves. He first presents a general discussion of the human energy system, and the ways in which it becomes blocked or fragmented. Sherwood maintains that most blockages are rooted in fear, and that the only effective way of overcoming fear is to confront it. Doing this requires honesty and courage. He says that "honesty is the willingness to see things as they truly are, not as you would like them to be. Courage is the willingness to accept what you see." Neither of these are easy, and he devotes a whole chapter to "becoming fearless." Following a chapter on the physical body, Sherwood then defines and discusses the role of the subtle bodies: the astral body, the mental body, and the causal body in energy therapy. Humans have seven primary chakras, which are energy centers located along the spine and head. Sherwood points out that the chakras must "all be open and in balance if a person is to experience wholeness and unconditional joy." The chakras in most people are blocked and unbalanced. The second half ofthe book contains a full description of the role of each chakra and how it can become blocked, followed by meditations and exercises for unblocking and clearing the chakra. He also includes several exercises designed to facilitate the flow of energy throughout the whole body. Sherwood promises that Chakra Therapy will help you "learn how to heal yourself by healing your energy system . . . because it is energy in its myriad forms which determines a person's physical health, emotional health, mental health and level of consciousness." Readers will find that he keeps his promise.
