Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing »
By Caroline Myss, Ph.D.
Harmony Books, 1996. 298 pages
“The more I studied the human energy system, the more I realized that very little is created ‘randomly’ in our bodies or, for that matter, in our lives. The links between our emotional and spiritual stresses and specific illnesses are best understood in the context of the anatomy of the human energy system—the anatomy of our own spirits . . .” — Caroline Myss, Anatomy of the Spirit
This book written by one of the world’s most respected medical intuitives provides an outstanding overview of the human energy system including the body’s seven chakras or energy centers she views as centers of spiritual and physical power. Clearly written and illustrated with real-life stories from her medical intuition practice, this book is a quite simply the best book I have read about the chakra system, and offers readers an illuminating view of the true nature of who we are as human beings and our greater potential to direct our own health, well-being and fulfillment of sacred purpose.
Beginning with a discussion of key principles of medical intuition and healing (including such principles as “biography becomes biology”), Dr. Myss takes readers on a journey through the human energy system, exploring the sacred truths inherent in our energetic makeup and the energetic consequences of our belief patterns and other factors as she offers her own unique view of how body and spirit work together. Woven through this discussion is her synthesis of how the ancient wisdom of three spiritual traditions is expressed through our energy anatomy.
Whether you are reading this remarkable book as a healing professional or for your own personal benefit, Anatomy of the Spirit is a powerful resource that beckons one to return again and again for fresh insights and new perspectives.
The Mandala of Being: Discovering the Power of Awareness »
by Richard Moss, M.D.
New World Library, 2007. 361 pages
Why is it important to maintain focus in the present moment, the Now? For many years, I read books referring to the Now without truly understanding what this state really is or feels like. Then I read this book and was bowled over by the elegant way in which Dr. Moss explains the true essence of present moment focus, why it is so important for everyday living and how we can learn to embrace it as our natural way of being through the model of The Mandala of Being. Through the Mandala, he explains the mind’s natural tendency/choice to move away from the present moment and revert to one of four places (past, future, judgment of self, or other) and the personal costs that are incurred through resulting distortions and illusions, including diminished personal power, creativity and sense of well-being.
This book may help readers to recognize their own natural ways of holding awareness in places that keep them from knowing “the juice of life and the truth of who we are and why we are here” and living in greater joy. Taking readers gently and clearly through the processes through which stories, illusions and old emotions are created and distort our perceptions of what is true in the present moment, Dr. Moss brings us to an understanding of how we can let go of fear and anxiety and live fully in our true wisdom and power that come from maintaining our awareness in the present. Working with The Mandala of Being personally offers readers a compass and a highly effective practice for directing their attention and awareness to present-moment focus and a richer, more satisfying way of living.
The Heart’s Code: Tapping Into The Wisdom and Power of Our Heart Energy - The New Findings about Cellular Memories and Their Role in the Mind/Body/Spirit Connection »
by Paul Pearsall, Ph.D.
Broadway Books, 1999. 288 pages
Both those who are skeptical of the heart’s extra-sensory abilities and those convinced of them will find this book an engaging exploration of the multi-dimensional nature of the heart. In it, Dr. Pearsall brings together scientific research, ancient knowledge of the world’s indigenous cultures and his own personal and professional experiences to support the view that the heart not only loves and feels, but also “thinks, remembers, communicates with other hearts, helps regulate immunity and contains stored information that continually informs the human body.” Reading this book may help you more fully understand the profound gifts of the heart and how they relate to health, well-being, love and relationships.
Living in the Heart: How to Enter the Sacred Space within the Heart »
By Drunvalo Melchizedek

“You are more than just a human being, much more. For within your heart is a place, a sacred place where the world can literally be remade through conscious co-creation. If you really want peace of spirit and if you want to return home, I invite you into the beauty of your own heart.” With these words, Drunvalo Melchizedek invites readers to join him on a journey of awakening to the presence and experience of the sacred heart.
This book is like no other I have read. At times it reads like a sci-fi adventure, a practical meditation guide or a spiritual text. Through his own fascinating experiences, Drunvalo relates how he came to understand the role of the mind in creating our outer world and how he discovered the profound, transformative gifts that are to be found in the sacred heart. Included with the book are a meditation CD as well as exercises and meditation practices that will help you enter and experience your own sacred heart space.
