Wheels of Life: A User’s Guide to the Chakra System by Anodea Judith
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 the chakra system. Then 125,000 people bought this book, and the world started to wake up to the importance of the chakra system.
Being a classic, it’s no surprise to see that Judith’s book has been expanded and revised. The current addition offers one of the most in-depth looks at the chakras.
What I love best about this book is that it teaches you how to activate your chakras in practical ways.
Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System As a Path to the Self by Anodea Judith
Anodea Judith’s other best book on chakras is this one: Eastern Body, Western Mind.
What makes this book 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 one of the best books about chakras is that Judith discusses how the chakra system matches the systems devised by famous psychologists like Freud.
The Chakra Bible By Patricia Mercier
The Chakra Bible is a beautifully presented chakra book full that covers all the most important information about each of the chakras. It discusses each chakra’s stones, healing properties, mantras and tons more.
What makes this one of the best chakra books is that it’s so easy to pick up. If you’re a beginner, you will love this. The book covers all the basics, including some work on crystals and yoga.
This is definitely the easiest read on this list. Perfect if you’re new to the chakra system.
Chakras and Their Archetypes by Ambika Wauters
In this chakra book, Ambika Wauters explores how the chakra system effects us on an unconscious level. This book is a really helpful tool for balancing your chakras and healing.
The “Archetypes” 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 chakra cleansing.
Wauters explains how blocks in the chakras 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, activating the chakras so that we can achieve a higher state of being.
