Ambika Wauters explores how linking classic archetypes to the seven chakras in the human energy system can reveal unconscious ways of behaving and serve as a valuable tool for transformation and healing. Archetypes, which Carl Jung defined as “patterns of behavior,” have emerged out of the core of human experience—the Mother and the Victim, the Lover and the Actor, the Warrior and the Servant.
In CHAKRAS AND THEIR ARCHETYPES, Wauters shows that creating healthy archetypes is both liberating and fundamental to our well-being. In relating the archetypes to the chakras, she guides us on a journey to understand where our energy is blocked and which attitudes or emotional issues are responsible. Using a variety of exercises, meditations, and affirmations, she helps us to free ourselves from the negative archetypes, enabling us to rise to higher levels of awareness and empowerment—where we can transcend limitations, make healthy choices, release creativity, heal our pasts, and live with joy, vitality, and love.

this is a great book. each chapter focuses on one chakra starting with the root and ending with the crown. each chakra has a positive and negative archetype. the chapters discuss each of the archetypes associated with that chakra and gives case histories. there are two for the positive and two for the negative aspect, one male and one female. there are meditations and exercises to work through the archetypes to overcome the negative aspects and develop the positive archetype. i found this book to be very helpful and enlightening. it really goes hand in hand with some of the other books that i have read.

This book was recommended to me by my yoga teacher. The book provides wonderful information about the Chakras and relates them to archetypes that anyone can understand. The description of the archetypes and the emotional issues that we may carry within ourselves may hit home for a few people. The book provides excellent meditation passages to help heal chakras by addressing the emotional issues, and provides wonderful affirmations. I highly reccomend this book to anyone that is looking to heal from emotional hurts from the past or present.
