Chakras for Starters

Unlock the Hidden Doors to Peace & Well-Being
by Savitri Simpson

"Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:37) These oft-quoted words of Jesus are central to his message to his disciples and to the whole world. When questioned by the Pharisees as to where this kingdom might be found or when it would manifest on earth, Jesus replies: "Behold, the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:21)

We may be as confused right now as Jesus' listeners were so long ago. How do you "seek within" and where exactly is this "inner kingdom"? A look inside our physical bodies would not show us anything that might be called the "kingdom of God," even though our human bodies are magnificently created and worthy of awe. Yet we all sense that there is something else going on within ourselves—ssomething beyond flesh and blood, corpuscles and teardrops.

Once, while the great yoga master Paramhansa Yogananda was speaking to his students he paused to say: "O, if only you could see yourself as I see you. I can see beyond the flesh and entrails, when the light comes. It is so beautiful!"

This "light body" of which Yogananda speaks is also called the astral body, of which the chakras are key components.

In addition to offering information about the chakras, this book includes guided meditations and experiential exercises for each chakra, for it is important for the chakras to be experienced internally as well as being understood intellectually.

May God's light and blessings fill you completely and bless your inner journey toward final freedom and oneness with all that is.
