The Wisdom of the Chakras by Ellen Tadd

Lantern Books has offered me the opportunity to read and review The Wisdom of the Chakras by Ellen Tadd.  I graciously accepted and started reading over the past weekend.  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.

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.

While reading, I plan to explore these simple practices and write about my experiences.  I invite you to join me on this journey and share your experiences as well.
