Revised edition of the groundbreaking New Age book that seamlessly merges Western psychology and science with spirituality, creating a compelling interpretation of the Eastern chakra system and its relevance for Westerners today.

In Eastern Body, Western Mind, chakra authority Anodea Judith brought a fresh approach to the yoga-based Eastern chakra system, adapting it to the Western framework of Jungian psychology, somatic therapy, childhood developmental theory, and metaphysics and applying the chakra system to important modern social realities and issues such as addiction, codependence, family dynamics, sexuality, and personal empowerment.

Arranged schematically, the book uses the inherent structure of the chakra system as a map upon which to chart our Western understanding of individual development. Each chapter focuses on a single chakra, starting with a description of its characteristics and then exploring its particular childhood developmental patterns, traumas and abuses, and how to heal and maintain balance.

An easy-to-use therapy tool for transforming unhelpful belief patterns and envisioning positive change

• Identifies 28 beliefs per chakra that can be energetically realigned using the Healing InSight Method

• Offers a tool set of therapeutic processes, affirmations, visualization, and bodywork for the practical application of the transformational belief realignment method

• Includes 56 full-color, high-vibration chakra images, one for each main chakra as well as 7 additional empowering images for each chakra

• Paperback with lay flat binding

Working with Chakras for Belief Change transforms people’s unhelpful beliefs through clearing their chakras, raising their vibrations, and creating a fertile space for the New to come in. The Healing InSight Method presented in this practical full-color book is based on affirmations used together with individual chakra work and specific bodywork exercises, including techniques drawn from kinesiology, qigong, whole-brain integration, visualization, and infinity symbol exercises. Psychologist and energy therapist Nikki Gresham-Record channeled 28 common beliefs for each chakra, 196 total, which can be fully realigned using this transformational system of complete mind-body-spirit healing. The author organizes the beliefs around the chakra system and explains how unhealthy beliefs can take root within the chakras and the body. She shows how her belief realignment method is capable of changing beliefs and their associated vibrations in the subconscious mind and energy body, thus enabling any blocks to dissolve and your system to open up to the opportunity for change.

The 56 high-vibration chakra images included in this book can be used as a tool for therapeutic guidance as well as for positive manifestation. Each chakra is represented by a main chakra image along with 7 chakra aspect images, affirming potent qualities that we are all able to access when balanced and in harmony within ourselves. The artistry of the chakra images offers an immersion in the vibration of the empowering chakra-related beliefs and aids energetic resonance to help people feel good and begin healing. Also offering case studies and a life-review process to help the reader take stock of their situation before and after they begin the Healing InSight Method, Working with Chakras for Belief Change provides a gentle, energetic, yet potentially life-changing tool for personal growth and development.
The first guide to working with microchakras, the channels within each of the 7 major chakras

• Identifies 147 microchakras that affect our spiritual evolution and daily well-being

• Introduces the new field of Microchakra Psychology and its practical component of InnerTuning, the use of precise sacred sounds that release energy blockages within the chakras

Each of the traditional 7 chakras contains 21 microchakras, which enable the chakras to process information related to our thoughts, feelings, and behavior. When the energy flowing in the chakras is blocked, our physical, emotional, and psychological well-being is compromised. Through the unique practice of InnerTuning--a system of precise, potent sounds and mantras--blockages in the microchakras can be released so the subtle body can become realigned and physical and mental health can be restored.

Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar developed the InnerTuning technique from his early work with breath and sacred sounds, which began at age 12 with his guru in India. In 1967 his discovery of the 147 microchakras inspired his creation of Microchakra Psychology, a blend of ancient wisdom and contemporary psychology that explains the workings of the subtle body and how openings or blockages in the chakras can either encourage or sabotage psychological health and spiritual development. In this book, Shyamji describes methods for optimizing energy flow in the microchakras using the practice of InnerTuning in order to enhance one’s well-being and promote spiritual growth through the power of sound, breath, and the divine energy that resides within us all.
Move into a fifth-dimensional way of living by engaging the energy lines between the chakras that form energetic triangles of light

• Includes illustrated, step-by-step instructions for yoga asanas with explanations of the triangles of light created by each as well as their specific health benefits

• Explains how the triangles of light energize the body, wake up our cells, and connect us to our own inner light

• Introduces the 10 major and 21 minor chakras that form the triangles of light

• Paper with French flaps

We are all beings of light. Our bodies are pervaded and rejuvenated by energy lines between our major and minor chakras. When we practice yoga asanas (postures), these energy lines create triangles of light that connect us to universal light and energy. Focusing on them and feeling them during yoga practice can raise our vibrational frequency and help us move toward yoga’s eighth step--the state of enlightenment.

Drawing on yoga’s original teachings, Yoga of Light reveals how to awaken and energize the chakra triangles of light with the practice of asanas, breathing, visualization, and meditation. Exploring the universal web of light and our place within it, as well as the body’s electromagnetic field, or aura, yoga expert Pauline Wills provides a concise introduction to the ten major and twenty-one minor chakras instrumental in forming the yoga triangles of light. You will discover how visualizing and, eventually, feeling these triangles as you practice the postures energizes the body, allowing you to connect to your own inner light. This wakes up all cells in the body and imbues them with increased energy. The triangles also firmly connect us to the sacred geometry of the universe, aligning us with the greater cosmos.

The author includes an illustrated, step-by-step guide to the asanas, detailing how to perform them correctly, and clearly explains and depicts the triangles of light formed within each posture and their specific health benefits. She also includes a series of exercises and breathing techniques to affect and increase control of prana, the life force within the body, as well as simple exercises, warm-up movements, meditations, and visualizations to help familiarize yourself with the major chakras instrumental in forming the triangles of light.

Yoga of Light reveals how, by working with the triangles of light, we can each become more aware of our connection to the web of light and the greater universe. This book, for beginners and advanced practitioners alike, shows how anyone can increase the benefits of their yoga practice by engaging and energizing the triangles of light.
