Book Review: Chakra Awakening Transform Your Reality Using Crystals, Color, Aromatherapy & The Power of Positive Thought

Chakra Awakening: Transform Your Reality Using Crystals, Color,  Aromatherapy & The Power of Positive Thought. Margaret Ann Lembo. Minnesota: Llewellyn, 2011. 216 pp.

Margaret Ann Lembo takes you on a captivating  journey throughout Chakra Awakening: Transform Your Reality Using Crystals, Color, Aromatherapy & The Power of Positive Thought with ease and grace if you are a beginner to understanding the magic behind energy healing and how it can enhance your spiritual cravings. The overall purpose of this book is to guide you along with the tools of crystals, color and natural scents based on the 7 areas of chakras so that you can experience first-hand a positive metamorphosis of your current life.

To understand the power of energy healing the reader will be given the essential pieces or tools that Lembo proves with her own life experience and science to support the epiphany, many readers experience, that openly smile at you within the chapters. There are many traditions and remedies that live in the folds of Lembo’s healing art like when she describes her dream training experience.

When I trained with a medicine woman in dreaming and stalking techniques, she would have me dream from my navel…I was blessed with many profound dreams using this technique.

Lembo continues to credit the ancient knowledge to her mentors and spiritual leaders throughout her book and uses personal experience not to bore the reader, but to enliven the experience with personality and charm. She makes you want to jump inside the book and cook up a gorgeous Italian feast.

Chakra Awakening as I like to say for short is a masterpiece of perfect timing. Living in the 21st century and being a digital native to accessing information in a quick way I easily read through this book between classes and hours of studying for midterms and found that the information Lembo presents in her book is more than just ancient knowledge being regurgitated. It is presented in such nimbelness that her energetic personality sped up time and gave me the energy to want to learn more. I would call her the Jack of Chakras.

Nonetheless, using the tools she describes like crystals have easily became an integral part of my college life. I am wearing a Citrine necklace for success and confidence as well as carrying various gemstones in my pocket to remind me of positive affirmations as I go to class for a presentation or keeping up with the wild energy of the city.

This book has really moved my spirituality to a new level as a student and I certainly believe it can move anyone’s if they are looking for positive change in their life. After all, times are changing right? So why not move your ass you lazy bum…ooops sorry “cancel, clear, and delete” that and buy the book.
