Great grounding for your path to your own spiritual quest.

This is one of the very few books I felt compelled to write about but I could not help myself. This is one of the first Spiritual books I felt in total cinch with. It beings with giving you the back ground knowledge you need in order to really appreciate the upcoming knowledge she gives further in the book. This book is not just about African (Egyptian and Yoruba) spirituality but also shows the connections to Hindu, Buddhists beliefs to those original Egyptian concepts. It even connects Christian beings to the Egyptians. But this is not a book about Religion she leaves this for you to decide, she just presents the connections as a reference to what she is trying to say. This a "How to Guide", it goes into detail from how to prepare your body for spiritual awaking, i.e. mediations, exercises mainly yoga, to foods you should eat for each Charkas, and Crystals. It also gives a pretty long list of Orisa, and has a chapter dedicated to each individual charka. It is full of easy to do practical things you can do in your own home, to heighten the positive Vibrations in your home and body that are not time consuming. And for women she points out our own powers as Goddesses and the role we USE to play before our original beliefs were destroyed by colonization. This book is very in-depth but not over whelming. It also filled the void I felt and filled in some of the blanks, I was left with after being raised Christian, and exploring other "Major" religion left me with. A MUST BUY for anyone looking to start on a more slef- empowering spiritual path! I could go on but there is to much to say. Buy it, borrow it just get it!
