Chakra Therapy: For Personal Growth & Healing
Chakra Therapy
For Personal Growth & Healing
Paperback      ISBN: 0875427219

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.

Hands of Light
A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field
Paperback      ISBN: 0553345397

With the clarity of a physicist and the compassion of a gifted healer with fifteen years of professional experience observing 5,000 clients and students, Barbara Ann Brennan presents the first in-depth study of the human energy field for people who seek happiness, health and their full potential.

Our physical bodies exist within a larger "body," a human energy field or aura, which is the vehicle through which we create our experience of reality, including health and illness. It is through this energy field that we have the power to heal ourselves.

This energy body -- only recently verified by scientists, but long known to healers and mystics -- is the starting point of all illness. Here, our most powerful and profound human interactions take place, the precursor and healer of all physiological and emotional disturbances.

Hands of Light is your guide to a new wholeness. It offers:

- A new paradigm for the human, in health, relationship, and disease
- An understanding of how the human energy field looks, functions, is disturbed, healed, and interacts with friends and lovers.
- Training in the ability to see and interpret auras
- Medically verified case studies of healing people from all walks of life with a variety of illnesses.
- Guidelines for healing the self and others.
- The author's personal and intriguing life adventure which gives us a model for growth, courage and possibilities for expanded consciousness

Paperback      ISBN: 0892812397

The first contemporary study of Bach's techniques by one of Europe's leading practitioners.

Over many years of study, he discovered 38 flower remedies that act on the disharmony within the patient and pave the way toward recovery. Bach Flower Therapy describes the remedies in such a way that patients taking them will gain deeper insight into the remedies underlying psychological concepts, thereby enhancing the potential for self-healing.

Intended for practitioners and lay readers alike, the book includes lists of symptoms to facilitate diagnosis.
