There is a lot of information in this book. But I can't help but take away 2 stars for the pictures. I'm distracted from the information with pictures that a) obviously come from photo stock somewhere on the internet. The photos seem ingenuine like they're from a magazine trying to sell me something. But more importantly, b) all the photos are Eurocentric. There are two pictures in the entire 385 page book that aren't of people who are white and those two pictures are illustrating a dance done b ...more

I bought this book because my yogi would tell me to release my chakra and I really didn't understand what exactly they were asking me. My knowledge of Chakras came from way to many episodes of Naruto and I was sure the yogi was not asking me to walk on water despite the yoga positions felt like it was the same level of difficult. This book is great because it's well written well illustrated and well structed for even those who aren't very informed by the subject title.

I found this gem back in 2013 or 2014 in the library. Sadly, I had to return it too soon and I never completed reading the whole book. I've completely forgotten the name till today when I accidentally came across the author's name. This book has everything: crystals, yoga, aromatherapy,meditation and knowledge to understand and cleanse the energies.

I feel like, I want to buy this to complete the reading!

I absolutely love this book. It lives on my desk and I use it constantly for reference in my personal life and my professional life. This is a great quick reference in regards to chakras - which chakra does what, what yoga positions are beneficial for which chakra issues, stones, affirmations, gods, colors, scents, and so much more. I absolutely love it and I'm pretty sure it's the only chakra book inclusive of other new age modalities that you will need. Highly recommended!

This little book contains A LOT of information. It is a very good starting point for anyone wanting to get a feel for chakras (energies). The book has many different methods of getting in touch (clearing, awakening) your chakras. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone wanting to get information about the chakras.

The Chakra Bible was FULL of information about chakras, some of which I knew, some of which helped clarify what I knew, and a good bit of connecting information I didn't know. I've been a practicing Reiki for nine plus years, and still took eighteen pages of notes. The notes about yoga poses, aromatherapy, and crystals that support energy work provided good information. I wish it would have clarified for new readers the difference between overactive and underactive energy centers and how to tell ...more

This book was recommended by my Kalari teacher. I’m only slightly embarrassed to put it in my Goodreads’ feed. I did enjoy learning about the ancient understanding of the body. Good information. Clear and easy to read.

Very thorough, but written primarily from a Hindu perspective. There is a chapter at the end about other religions' teachings.

A good read but I wished it also spoke about reiki along with this more and yoga less.

The Chakra Bible: The Definitive Guide to Working with Chakras (Paperback)

I use this book for summary reports following a tuning session: particularly the Main Characteristics At A Glance tables for each of the seven main chakra's.

Information in the book is written in easily understandable language for the novice in energy healing, such as I am. Charts are convenient for quick reference. Illustrations very good.

Introducing the subject, Mercier includes historic and explanatory information; good

This was really very interesting. The book was very comprehensive and an easily read. The information was laid out really well. I especially enjoyed that not only were the main Chakras included, but also some of the lesser known, or newly discovered Chakra's.I do not own this book, but found it at the library, as such I read it in a different manner While I read this in one go, I think this would be much more useful as a reference book or guide. It is a book that you want to read slowly so that ...more

not read in full bc i don't think you can ever finish reading reference books.....some people have shelved this under medical, but for me it's more spiritual and by that i mean as a yogi i believe in 'something bigger', an 'energy' or 'life force' that is greater than us but i don't believe in any form of organised religion. Chakras are the energy within us, our own magnetic field if you like. This little book covers more or less everything, which means what ever your views on chakras (yogic, pa ...more

This beautiful book is one of a series of a "bibles" with new age titles. Others include The Meditation Bible, The Crystal Bible, The Astrology bible, and The Tarot Bible. The Chakra Bible is very informative, well-written and quite interesting. Highly recommended!

Very informative, just wish it had more remedial advice, such as with diabetes and those sorts of deseases (it does mention it sometimes, but it is hard to reference because they are not referenced really)

Ok this is a little out there for anyone who is leary of alternative medicine, but I have loved learning about energies and find it so facinating to learn about how other cultures and religions view the soul and healing.

Good if you want a lot of information in easy to swallow bits, but not if you're looking for great detail. A good book to keep for reference.
