It is not uncommon to find, whilst self-diagnosing the condition of one’s chakras, that one in particular is significantly out of balance or particularly badly blocked.
For Michelle S Fondin it was the throat centre that was the worst of all for it had, for many years, led her to experience a host of medical problems in that area of her body. From tonsillitis as a teenager through to thyroid cancer at the age of twenty-eight she was constantly struggling with health issues which eventually led her to investigate the world of chakra healing and to discover the significance of her own fifth chakra in creating these illnesses.
Many years later Michelle S Fondin is now the owner of Fondin Wellness, where she practices as an Ayurvedic lifestyle counsellor as well as yoga and meditation teacher. Her exploration of alternative medicine has developed into a desire to share her knowledge with others; something she has done with her latest book Chakra Healing for Vibrant Energy: Exploring Your 7 Energy Centers with Mindfulness, Yoga, and Ayurveda.
Chakra Healing for Vibrant Energy has a chapter devoted to each of the seven primary energy centers of the human electromagnetic energy field. These range from the root chakra, which is located in the middle of the perineum, up a central axis formed by the spine to the seventh centre located at the crown of the head.
At each stage the author itemizes the function of each centre. These typically include;
- The significance of the chakra in daily life
- The elemental force associated with it
- The negative effects of an over abundance of an energy at that centre
- Physical ailments associated with the centre
- Level of consciousness generated at each stage
- The opportunities in life presented by the centre
In addition the author also focuses on a number of healing modalities; each of which is specific to a centre. This include yoga asanas, affirmations and guided meditations.
The journey that took Fondin into world of alternative medicine revealed to her the importance that the throat had – not only in regulating her own health but in revealing that the core issue she faced related to a blocked ability to express her own personal truth. Working on her fifth chakra clearly brought many advantages and opportunities in the world of communication; of which this book is evidence.
Chakra Healing for Vibrant Energy is a book that straddles the world of Eastern energy work and western spiritual philosophy. It is not a book of quick and simple remedies but a graduated exposition of the way that our bioenergetic centers function along with their role in keeping our physical bodies in prime operating condition.
If you are new to the subject of chakras then this is a book that will particularly appeal to you for its author’s clear and down-to-earth approach to the subject avoids unnecessary and possibly confusing jargon.
Chakra work is a prolonged and continuous process of self-analysis and even self -diagnosis but as the author proved through her own healing successes it is an adventure worth embarking upon. Chakra Healing for Vibrant Energy is a worthy guide and an insightful exploration of a subject that is gaining a wider appeal.
