How in tune are you with your personal energy? Do you know how to tap into it and use this innate power? If you find your answer is no or you feel like you could use a refresher, I highly recommend Jill Henry’s informative, accessible guidebook The Energy SourceBook.
In this well laid out personal workbook, Jill covers four extremely useful and powerful esoteric practices – Relaxation and Meditation, Chakra Energy, Polarity and the Five Elements, and Feng Shui. This book is in fact designed to help you “balance personal energy, increase personal energy, and use it for healing”. What’s even better is that Jill presents this information in an easy to read format with a style that is warmly conversational.
Each chapter of The Energy SourceBook is a complete study in itself of a healing energy practice. It takes you through the theory of that practice into tangible ways to begin actually practicing it in your life. Each chapter ends with simple yet profound exercises that I personally found very powerful. The exercises really helped to bring home the concepts that chapter covered in a very real, “organic” way. I was also presently surprised to feel my sense of confidence and assuredness in these areas rise with each exercise I tried. The exercises are well-designed to be encouraging and empowering in this way.
One feature that I found very pleasing was the brevity of the chapters. It was really wonderful to have a book with such profound information written in a way that encouraged you to spend more time in practice of the concepts than reading about them. Jill speaks to this in the introduction, stating “The chapters are short, so that you may spend less time reading and more time doing. It is only when you are experiencing that you feel the flow of energy.”
I found this book to be a refreshing introduction and overview of the theory and practice of tuning one’s personal energy. If you fancy yourself a beginner in these areas, this book would serve as a wonderful first step into understanding this topic. I’d also recommend this book to anyone wanting to introduce these concepts to young adults in an easy, non-threatening yet insightful way.
Overall, Jill Henry has done us all a great service by providing this guidebook. I hope you find it as valuable as I have!
