I found Karla's book by divine guidance, didn't know what to expect other than learning more about the subject of auras and chakras. She has written a do-it-yourself healing guide that has become invaluable in my day to day life. Refreshing, common-sence, down-to-earth language. Not to mention wonderful meditations that have helped immensely. She gives the tools to trust in our intuition, take responsiblity for our emotions, heal ourselves, and above all bring balance into everyday life.
Too many books on auras and chakras are designed to look good on your coffee table, with pretty colour coded sections and lists of which stone fits which crystal chakra and so on. Karla Mclaren, who by her own admission has never read a book on chakras, eschews this approach and writes instead about her own experience, - sharing her knowledge rather than giving you lots of information. I have found the simple exercises very helpful. The only truly worthwhile book on this subject I have found so far.
