The Seven Stages of Power and Healing
Book recommendation by Erica Wallace Moore
Caroline Myss (pronounced mace), a medical intuitive and writer, goes in depth to explain the chakra energy system in a way that is story-driven and applicable to experience. While my bookshelf has a space for this book, I reference it so much, it’s almost always within reach.
Here is what Myss says about the chakra energy system:
Each of these energy centers contains a universal spiritual life-lesson that we must learn as we evolve into higher consciousness…. The chakra system is an archetypal depiction of individual maturation through seven distinct stages. The chakras are vertically aligned, running from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, suggesting that we ascend toward the Divine by gradually mastering the seductive pull of the physical world.
The chakra energy system exists within each of us, is never closed, and has many lessons to teach us according to what we experience in life. Essentially, what we experience—along with our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs—becomes embedded in our chakra energy systems. The stories of our lives become part of our energy field.
I love what Myss writes about our lives: “your biography—that is, the experiences that make up your life—becomes your biology.”
Once I read these words, I began to look at the stories of everyone’s lives in a completely different way, which resonates with me so much as a writer and storyteller. The words we hold fast to as we describe our lives become embodied within our cells and our chakra energy system. Every part of our bodies tells a story and that story is indicative of our history.
Myss dives deeply into each chakra system and teaches how we can become aware to what is happening in our physical bodies as message for healing. And she writes in such a way that is empowering. When you become aware of your biography and your biology, you are empowered to create your own balance and transformation.
