Here are the absolute best books on chakras.


As well as the books below, I’ve written lists of the best meditation books on specific topics.

Take a look at my lists for:

Chakra Healing

chakra healing is one of the best chakra books

Get it on Amazon

Chakra Healing is a truly exceptional read. It goes into great detail on the different methods for healing, and it covers everything from mantras to gemstones.

It was written by Reiki master Margarita Alcantara, who does energy healing in New York. She is known for her personal approach to her clients, and she shares that personal touch in this book. It gives you many different ways to heal so you can find the best solution for you.  Originally published in 2017, this is still great in 2020.

Wheels of Life 

Anodea Judith is the author of two of the best books on chakras. Wheels Of Life is an absolute classic. I just love it.

First published in 1987, Wheels Of Life was one of the first books to really discuss the chakras in depth. Before then, very few people knew anything about this spiritual system.  Then 125,000 people bought this book, and the world started to awaken to the importance of this spiritual practice.

Being a classic, it’s no surprise to see that Judith’s book has been expanded and revised. The current edition offers one of the most in-depth looks at the topic. And thanks to all the updates it is still one of the best chakra books in 2020, even if it was originally written a couple of decades ago.

What I love best about this one is that it teaches you how to activate your chakras in practical ways.

Eastern Body, Western Mind 

Anodea Judith’s other best book on chakras is this one: Eastern Body, Western Mind.

What makes this publication so amazing is the fact that it takes the ancient spiritual chakra system and discusses it in a very modern, scientific and psychological way. Judith’s excellent writing makes this such an easy read. And there are organisational charts that let you use it more like a reference book.

What makes this so exceptional is that Judith relates the ancient spiritual beliefs to modern-day science. It’s fascinating to see the spirit-science in action.

The Chakra Bible By Patricia Mercier

This is a beautifully presented read that covers all the most important information about the seven chakras. It discusses stones, healing, mantras and a whole lot more.

What makes this such an excellent read is that it’s so easy to pick up. If you’re a beginner, you will love this. It covers all the basics, including some work on crystals and yoga.

This is definitely the easiest read on this list. Perfect for beginners.

Chakras and Their Archetypes by Ambika Wauters

In this one, Ambika Wauters explores how the chakra system affects us on an unconscious level. This book is a really helpful tool for balancing and healing.

The “Archetypes” mentioned in the title are the Jungian archetypes devised by psychologist Carl Jung. In the book, Ambika discusses how these archetypes relate to the chakras and how we can create healthier archetypes through cleansing.

Wauters explains how blocks in our being lead to character flaws that can harm us. Activating and balancing the chakras, Wauters says, is the key to healing.

Wauters shares many meditations, exercises and affirmations that help our prana to flow freely so that we can achieve a higher state of being.

Which is your favourite read?

Those are the best books about chakra for 2020. I recommend reading all of them because they each offer something unique. Some are more scientific and psychological. Some are very instructional and provide useful guides to cleansing. Of course, you might also like to read my own book, Your Best Meditation, which reveals not just how to cleanse the chakras, but many more meditations as well, so you can achieve complete wellbeing and inner-harmony.
