With so many chakra books and journals available, I wanted to narrow down the search and make it easy to find the perfect one for your needs. Most chakra books say the same thing, but I found 5 that are unique and in-depth in their approach.
In this article, I'm sharing 5 of the best chakra books and journals that will help you learn everything you need to know about opening, healing and balancing the chakras.
Finding the perfect chakra book
Most chakra books say essentially the same thing. For this reason, it's best to choose a book that fits your specific needs when it comes to working with your chakras.
No matter which book you pick up, you will learn the fundamentals of what each chakra represents and basics of how to work with it. So think about why you're wanting to work with your chakras, and how you most prefer to go about it.
Are you just wanting to learn about the chakras in general? Do you have a desire to connect with your chakras, and thus your higher self? Is there trauma in your past that has seemingly blocked a chakra and you're looking to heal this aspect in your life?
The 5 chakra books and journals below are not only highly rated, but unique and thought-out in their approach.
This book is for you if: you want a large and informative reference book on chakras. This is a "mac daddy" book on chakras that has amazing reviews for its in-depth analysis.
Its unique approach: as stated, this book goes into very deep explanations for each chakra, so this is good to keep on your metaphysical bookshelf for referencing, especially if you work as an energy healer.

Its unique approach: this journal helps you connect with your chakra energy while doing "non-stuffy" exercises that help you to relax and feel empowered.
