Some twenty years ago, the author-a clairvoyant from youth-began to examine the chakra system to understand the imbalances so prevalent in people today. She found that, in addition to correcting imbalances that hinder our aspirations, the chakras also help us realize the spiritual beings we truly are.
The Wisdom of the Chakras is the result of years of spiritual exploration and counseling. Ellen Tadd shows how the chakra system functions in everyday life; how our thoughts, words, and actions affect this system; and how the chakras shape us. She provides practical exercises that can be integrated easily into daily life to heal each chakra and to attain the alignment needed for a healthy and spiritual life. The author describes each of the seven chakras, their functions, and their individual and interconnected qualities and components. She shows how the chakra system offers a framework and the tools needed to understand common imbalances, helping the reader to integrate their characteristics and create greater harmony and balance in daily life.
The practical answers in The Wisdom of the Chakras will encourage readers to look more deeply into our human nature and begin to see that it is also the nature of the larger cosmos.

Lantern Books offered me the opportunity to read and review The Wisdom of the Chakras by Ellen Tadd which I graciously accepted. Without this opportunity, I may not have found this gem for quite a while. I started reading it, got about halfway through and noticed I had so many post-its sticking out of my book, that I might as well start over with a highlighter. So, I did. The book is filled with insights on how the chakra system affects our thoughts, words and actions; and how we can use simple practices to create harmony and balance in our daily life. I have read quite a few books on the chakra system and this book is very unique. This book is written with all levels of experience with the chakra system in mind; through experience not just information. This style of writing makes balancing the chakras more attainable to those just starting their meditation practice as well as beneficial for those with a deeper practice. It is also beneficial to those who have no attachments spiritually and are just looking for ways to divert their focus from everyday challenges and struggles. Ellen Tadd wrote the book in reverse, starting with the Crown Chakra, whereas most start with the Root. Tadd reasons that, "Starting from the base, we must do all the work ourselves. When the crown is open and functioning well, we connect to spirit, and we become aware that we are never alone in the process of growth and transformation." This ideal is a wonderful way to visualize and open the chakras. A Must Read!! I recommend this book to everyone.
