Wheels Of Life : A User's Guide to the Chakra System by Anodea Judith is an instruction manual for owning and operating the inner gears that run the machinery of our lives. Written in a practical, down-to-earth style, this fully illustrated book, Wheels Of Life will take the reader on a journey through aspects of consciousness, from the bodily instincts of survival to the processing of deep thoughts.
Discover this ancient metaphysical system under the new light of popular Western metaphors: quantum physics, elemental magick, Kabbalah, physical exercises, poetic meditations, and visionary art.



Many people focus on a single chakra - like the Crown Chakra for Spirituality, the Brow Chakra for Psychic Powers, the Heart Chakra for Universal Love, the Solar Plexus for Power (especially for those into the martial arts) and so on - each chakra's special attribute. And some people try to repress the 'lower' chakras as morally bad. BUT the real importance is to understand the chakras as The Energy System of the entire Mind/Body/Spirit Complex.

Wheels Of Life by Anodea Judith presents the Chakra System as a “Formula for Wholeness and a Template for Transformation” - actually a “Map for the Journey through Life”

“At the inner core of each one of us spin seven wheel-like energy centers called chakras. Swirling intersections of vital life forces, each chakra reflects an aspect of consciousness essential to our lives. Together the seven chakras form a system of modeling that consciousness that enables us to better see ourselves - in mind, body, behavior and culture. This system is a valuable tool for personal and planetary growth.

Chakras are centers of activity for the reception, assimilation and transmission of life energies. As all our action and understanding arise from and return to points within ourselves, our chakras, as core centers form the coordinating network of our complicated mind/body system. . . . The chakras are the master programs that govern our life, loves, learning and illumination. Like a rainbow bridge, they form the connecting channel between mind and body, spirit and matter, past and future, Heaven and Earth. As we spin through the tumultuous times of our present era, the chakras are the gears that turn the spiral of evolution, drawing our attention toward the still untapped frontiers of consciousness and its infinite potential.” (from Chapter One)

Wheels of Life is a system about a system - journeying the reader through the seven major chakras with theory, example, practical application and experiential exercises to accomplish the great work of personal transformation. Each consciousness is a unit in the evolutionary process moving us from what we are to what we can become, and through that process we realize ourselves as magicians, healers and visionaries.

Wheels of Life takes us through each chakra to fulfill its potentials and then transforms and makes us whole.

The journey is taken step-by-step, with each step bringing practical advantages in the development of inherent skills and abilities to meet the increasingly critical challenges of life in our times. Your life is filled with meaning and purpose. Its destiny is Enlightenment. Now, you must take the first step.

From the Publisher:
It is truly rare for a book to be a real classic. But that certainly is the case with Anodea Judith's Wheels of Life.

When it was first published there was not much in-depth information about the chakras available in the West. But that changed with Wheels of Life. People responded by buying over 125,000 copies of this wonderful book.

Now, Wheels of Life has been revised and expanded to meet the times and keep this book the leading title on the subject.

The main focus of Wheels of Life is an in-depth examination of each chakra. But it doesn't stop there, for above all, this book is practical. You will learn what each chakra can do for you and how you can clear it, balance it, and strengthen it to help you achieve optimum health, improved spirituality, and strengthening of psychic powers.

Other topics look at the chakras as a group so you can see how they interact. You will learn how chakras function in relationships. New in this edition is an entire chapter on how to foster healthy chakras in children.

Together, the seven chakras form a profound formula for wholeness that integrates mind, body, and spirit. From liberating our spirits to manifesting our dreams, the chakras are the very wheels that carry us through life.

More About the Author:

This review is from: Wheels of Life: A User's Guide to the Chakra System.

Wheels of Life was my first book on the Chakra system and to be quite frankly it has been one of those books I always go back to look for references. My personal opinion is that Anodea Judith, PhD, has done an excellent book, both for the beginner in working and understanding the Chakras as well as the advanced.
Each chapter is dedicated to a particular Chakra.

You will learn, the Sanskrit name to each Chakra, it's meaning, location, Element, Function, Inner State, Outer State, Body Parts, color, Mantra sound, Hindu Deity, as well as other deities from other pantheons. Also each chapter has a meditation on that particular Chakra as well as Yoga exercises to harness that particular Chakra to your favor.

I have been directed to other books, because people say that there are better books out there. But to be honest this book for beginners is simple and right to the point. Anodea Judith, PhD writing is down to earth, and direct. Think about it, how can 100,000 readers go wrong. If you are looking for your first book on Chakras, you will not go wrong here. 

Wheels of Life: A User's Guide to the Chakra System is a good book, full of a wealth of information.
