Featured Book: Chakra Empowerment for Women by Lisa Erickson #ABetterWorldOfBooks #bookreviews #newrelease #womenshealth
I am honored to be featuring Lisa Erikson’s newly released book, Chakra Empowerment for Women on “A Better World of Books.”
Lisa Erickson is a writer, chakra-based energy worker, and a teacher who specializes in women’s energetics and sexual trauma healing. She is trained in a variety of energy healing modalities, and is certified in mindfulness meditation instruction and trauma sensitivity. Lisa is a member of the International Association of Meditation Instructors, the American Holistic Health Association, the Energy Medicine Practitioners Association, and The Breathe Network, a non-profit dedicated to supporting holistic healing for sexual trauma survivors. She blogs at Mommy Mystic.
I first met Lisa through her blog and have been following her posts for several years. When she announced the publication of her book devoted to empowering women by helping them to connect to, and work with their body’s energy centers, or chakras, I asked her if she would like to be featured on a “A Better World of Books.”
Lisa’s passion for helping women embrace their power, in particular those who have experienced sexual trauma, is not only inspirational, it is infused into all aspects of her life’s work. Chakra Empowerment for Women is a testament of this devotion. In just over 200 pages of text, Lisa has provided women with an essential toolkit of empowerment and healing. She writes in a manner that is approachable for those not versed in the language of the chakras, while offering a transformational guidebook for women of all ages and walks of life.
Using the more widely known 7-chakra based system, Lisa guides her readers through the body’s energy centers, from the root to the crown, providing step-by-step methods using visualization, breath-work, body/hand positions, and sound, to connect with and activate the body’s energy centers. After she guides her reader’s through the chakras, Lisa provides four more empowerment techniques for women to increase vitality and abundance, heal imbalances, create healthy boundaries and protections, and to connect more deeply with the sacred power of the feminine energy body.
Lisa writes in a straightforward manner that is easy to understand as she takes her readers through the body’s energy centers and explains the role and potential held within each one. Offering anecdotes based on her work as a healer and teacher, Lisa demonstrates the power of a woman’s body and its ability to heal and resolve trauma and imbalances through simple, yet effective techniques.
As a fellow energy worker, I found myself deeply engaged with Lisa’s book. In particular, I admired her support of helping women to discover the power they already hold inside of them. Along with guided exercises to engage with the body’s energy systems, Lisa provides full-color illustrations to aid in the visualization aspect of each of her empowerment techniques. And, for those who prefer to work with audio recordings, mp3 files can be found on the book’s companion website, ChakraEmpowermentForWomen.com
While reading Lisa’s book, I found my eyes opening more deeply into the awareness of the way women’s energy bodies tend to differ from men’s, and the gifts that reside within. Chakra Empowerment for Women is a go-to manual for any woman (or individual aligning with a more feminine energy body) who is seeking a deeper understanding of self, and wishes to both heal and embrace the innate power held within her body of energy. Chakra Empowerment for Women will now have a place on the self of the library in my healing and yoga studio. It will be positioned beside other books that I hold dear to my heart as reference not only for myself, but for those who come to me looking for resources and advice.

Are you an author with a vision for a better world? Do you have a published book of poetry, fiction, or nonfiction that uplifts and empowers readers to create a more positive inner and outer environment? If so, I’d love to hear more about it. On a “Better World of Books,” I interview authors and review books of all genres that offer a vision for a better world. If you think your work is a part of this vision, please contact Alethea.
A Better World Book Reviews #BookReviews #BookPromotions
I have been contemplating writing and sharing book reviews on my blog for sometime, but the “how” did not morph into being until this morning as I was waking from sleep. I’ve never been quite comfortable with the idea of rating books. A book I may think is a 5, might be a 1 in someone else’s mind, and vice-versa. Instead of placing judgement, I’ve decided to showcase books whose inner essence is beautiful. Not because it is my opinion they are beautiful, but because they have been written with the hand of love, in all its myriad forms.
Books that support a vision for a better world.
A Better World of Books.
Therefore, I will be featuring and promoting books whose inner essence is light, in any form, whether they be poetry, picture books, nonfiction, visionary fiction, mixed-genre, or something else entirely. The only criteria is that each book holds inside its cover a vision for a better world. A world premised upon love and not hate, and where hope triumphs over despair. Books that empower the soul’s quest for light and truth. These are the books I am looking for.
Word are powerful. They drive our thoughts and our actions. They create our inner and outer realities. And, in a time where the darker side of humanity too often over-shadows the light in the media, I believe these books need to be shared and read more than ever.
If you are an author or poet of one of these books, please share it with me. Or, if you know someone who has written a book with a beautiful essence, please share this post with them. In return for a copy of the book, I will post a review without a rating that offers readers a window to the author’s vision for a better world.
I’d be honored to have you join me in this journey of building a Better World of Books!
