ENERGY ANATOMY : 3 Books On Auric Health & The Chakra System


What in the heck is auric health?

What is an aura?

What are chakras?

Is there really such thing as a chakra system?

Why should you care?

Maybe you shouldn't...

If you're living a happy, healthy life, surrounded by people you love, making a comfortable living doing work you enjoy, there may be no calling to delve into this kind of deep soul excavation.


If you are woo-curious or perhaps a life-long learner (especially when it comes to the esoteric), energy anatomy can be a fascinating course of study.

Many of us step onto this path because we're desperate for change or fed up with some recurrent issue in our lives. We want answers that reach beyond the status quo and may even have the potential to get to the source of things... the spiritual source.

If you believe that we are spirits (energetic beings) having a human (physical) experience, it makes sense then to learn about how energy informs your manifest reality and vice versa.

Here are three books I would recommend to anyone seeking a better understanding of themselves.

The first two are classics. Either would make a great resource for your personal library. They are books that can be referenced again and again throughout the years. 

The third is something of a wild card. It's hard to boil down why this quirky book made such an impact on me. All I can say for sure is that it's intriguing and made a lasting impression. 


3 Books On Auric Health & The Chakra System :

Eastern Body Western Mind : Psychology and the Chakra System as a Path to the Self by Anodea Judith 

This book offers an in depth study of each of the main seven chakras. It breaks down the traumas and abuses that may lead to an excess or deficiency within each chakra, then outlines practical actionable steps you can take to heal yourself of such imbalances.

 "The chakra system is a seven-leveled philosophical model of the universe..."

"A chakra is a center of organization that receives, assimilates, and expresses life force energy..."

"Chakra patterns are programmed deep in the core of the mind-body interface and have a strong relationship with our physical functioning. Just as the emotions can and do affect our breathing, heart rate, and metabolism, the activities in the various chakras influence our glandular processes, body shape, chronic physical ailments, thoughts and behavior..."

"This is one of the essential values of this system- that it maps onto both the body and the mind, and can be accessed through either."

Anatomy Of The Spirit : The Seven Stages Of Power And Healing by Caroline Myss 

This book is super-packed with information on each of the seven main chakras and how they both demonstrate and shape the power dynamics of your life. Power and healing are intimately linked, and Caroline Myss does a thorough job explaining how that energetic relationship informs the physical realities of our lives.

“We are meant to move toward self-discovery and spiritual maturity, to be ready and able to live a life that matters to us and those around us..." 

"Of great significance to me was the realization that 'healing' does not always mean that the physical body recovers from an illness. Healing can also mean that one's spirit has released long-held fears and negative thoughts towards oneself or others. This kind of spiritual release and healing can occur even though one's body may be dying physically.”

Energy Secrets : The Ultimate Well-Being Plan by Alla Svirinskaya

This is one I've written about before and spoken about many times. It features a collection of traditional Russian healing methods, including practical techniques for cleansing and healing your body and home. 

"The human aura has areas that serve as energy depots. These areas store our energy and transmit it to our organs. In Sanskrit they are known as chakras..." 

"Our aura is the result of the interaction of two force fields - the cosmic (coming down) and the terrestrial (rising up). These forces cross as they travel through our bodies, and their central crossing points are where we find the chakras."
