By Dr. Kate Tomas. A detailed guide to chakras and crystal meditation.
In Dr. Kate Tomas’ meditation guide, “Chakra Crystals: Promote Balance and Self-healing Through Crystal Meditations,” she leads people who are both new and experienced through the exploration of meditating with crystals. The book includes a small bag and each of the seven chakra crystals.
So, what are chakras? Well, the chakra system is part of the human energy system and has its roots in an ancient and rigorous spiritual tradition developed in India thousands of years ago. The chakra system was developed through defining how crystals affect different parts of the body. Different crystals have different “vibrations,” and our bodies are made up of vibrating matter; our chakras being the centers for this vibrating matter. Keeping our seven chakras clear and at their proper vibration frequency will create a strong sense of health and balance on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
Throughout the guide, Kate, who also is a psychic and a witch, explains each chakra’s energy, proximity to the physical body and corresponding crystal. Understanding our auras and chakras can improve our quality of life and help prevent disease and illness. The term “aura” is used to explain the parts of a human being that cannot be seen with the naked eye and need to be sensed or felt. The author describes the human aura as being layered like an onion, having physical, emotional, mental and astral (spiritual) levels. When a person becomes more aware of their energy, they seem to become more sensitive on all levels.
Each guided meditation in this book provides the reader with a descriptive and specific place in nature, giving imagery, sounds and feelings to fill the senses so they can empty their mind of stress and remain in a place of peace. Kate recommends doing the meditations in the order of how the book is organized to receive the optimal benefits of the guide.
The detailed information she gives about each chakra and each crystal makes the material easy to understand for anyone with even a minimal knowledge of the subject. Overall, this guide was very informative and explained meditation in a comprehensive way, especially to people who are new to meditation and crystals.
