By Jonathan Cope & Paul LennonChakra Harmony

Sublime music for meditation, yoga, reiki, etc., and to balance the chakras, soothe the mind and refresh the spirit. Wonderful melodies, composed especially by Paul Lennon, combined with didgeridoo, Tibetan singing bowls, Tibetan horn, bells & chimes, overtone singing and chanting, drums, Native American flute, guitar, piano and gentle synthesizer. Vocal chants intone the chakra names and each track is composed in the frequency associated with each area from Base Chakra in C to Crown Chakra in G.

I have listened to and used many different kinds of meditation and chakra balancing tracks before, but found the use of the didgeridoo and the Tibetan horn brought in another noticeable level of vibration. In addition, the overtone singing and chanting weave through each track like a gentle but profoundly evocative stream which adds to the energy of the whole. The combination of all the instrumental and vocal elements means this CD has a quite unique style.

As each track carries its own vibrational quality, and can be used to tune-up specific chakras individually or as a whole.  I certainly felt the vibrations from the start and, although the final track features a powerful rhythm to ensure the listener is brought back to clear consciousness, I continued to feel much more centred, balanced and peaceful. Purely because of one or two track sequences (one featuring the Tibetan horn in particular), I am not totally sure this CD would be appropriate for gentle healing treatments, but it is certainly is the right one for meditation and chakra work.

By Marie CunninghamThe Energy Within

In the fifteen chapters + epilogue of this book, Marie Cunningham expounds ‘The Gift of Knowing Yourself’. Using many examples from her own life experience, and discussing auras and chakras, Reiki, crystals, the energies of the earth, and many other topics, she assists the reader to find the way to self love.

I would describe this book as being down to earth, straightforward, and containing a great deal of common sense. For example, in the chapter on Auras and Chakras, Ms Cunningham writes: ‘Over the years I have found that many people have decided to go into the complex subject of mediumship/clairvoyance without having any knowledge of the chakra system. Personally, I don’t think that’s very responsible. After all, how can you start to learn how to use the third eye (for clairvoyance) or the throat chakra (for clairaudience) without knowing how they work? It’s like driving a car without having any driving lessons.’

This will, I hope, give you a flavour of the author’s direct approach. She also gives a great deal of fascinating information on the many phenomena associated with 2012, and links these details with the subject of metaphysics.

As someone who has recently attained Master level in Reiki, I particularly enjoyed the chapter on this particular method of healing. I have no doubt that Reiki is a life-changing system, and the author clearly shares my feelings on this, writing with enthusiasm and honest accuracy about it.

Altogether, in its several chapters, the book comes back to the main central important theme: that we hold the possibility for self-healing within ourselves.

with Seeliana MarchisioReiki Drum

Reiki Drum healing is a healing treatment combining the Shamanic drum with reiki healing.  My initial reaction was “how can the two go together?” so I was amazed how well they do work together!

Celia originally qualified as a music teacher and went on to become a spiritual healer, reiki master and teacher.

After a few formalities, and a few deep breaths to relax, Celia spent about twenty minutes ‘scanning’ me as I lay on the couch by tapping the drum with a continuous beat checking for any blockages or areas that need healing.

The drum appeared to change pitch at appropriate times.  The drumming literally engulfed me, so soothing.

Drumming was followed by a reiki treatment.  The reiki seemed to be somewhat enhanced by the drumming.  I found the whole treatment a very healing and uplifting experience, the session lasted about an hour.

It only came to the UK in 2007 but I am sure it will catch on!

by Dr Eric PearlThe Reconnection

Why are prominent doctors and medical researchers all over the world interested in the extraordinary healings reported by the patients of Dr Eric Pearl?

What does it mean when these patients report the sudden disappearance of afflictions such as cancer, AIDS-related diseases and cerebral palsy?

And what does it mean when people who interact with Dr Pearl report a sudden ability to access this healing energy not just for themselves but for others too?

You might have to reconsider everything you’ve read about conventional healing. The ‘new’ frequencies of healing described by Dr Pearl transcend ‘technique’ entirely and bring you to levels beyond those previously accessible to anyone, anywhere. This book takes you on Eric Pearl’s journey from the discovery of his ability to facilitate healings, to his well-deserved reputation as the instrument through which this process is being introduced to the world. But most importantly, The Reconnection reveals methods you can use to personally master these new healing energies.

I was entranced by this narrative of Dr Pearl’s journey from a scientific and somewhat sceptical perspective to being a channel of a healing method, which needs no complicated techniques, mantras or such. This is a story of transformation filled with insight, humour and deep understanding. A most definite ‘must read’ for all health practitioners.  In fact it is a ‘must read’ book for everyone. As you delve into its pages, keep an open heart and mind and prepare to be amazed, uplifted and perhaps transformed!

by White Elk WomanMystic Mouse

White Elk Woman is a well-known and loved figure in crystal skull circles, so when I learned that she had produced a CD I was instantly smitten with the desire to own it. I attended a crystal skull conference she organised in 2010 and had the most amazing experiences there, and my hope was that some of this had been ‘bottled’ and served up in this CD. I was not disappointed.

The track titles are a mixture of self-explanatory and intriguing – Ancestors, Obelisk, Sacred Space, Abundance Island, Voyage of Discovery, 11:11 Transformation, Lotus Flower and The Blue Skull – and there is a mixture of styles as you listen to the album, too. The first track is a weighty amalgam of deep resonance and low-voiced non-verbal vocals to help get you into a contemplative mood. The second continues with the deep resonating sounds that get to work right in the centre of your chest, but add toning at a feminine level of pitch, albeit still not high. If you sat with your eyes closed and just listened to these tracks, you would be in the right place for the next one which, along with the addition of gong sounds and a sort of spacey, almost underwater echo, invites you to ‘release, allow, trust, power’.

You could listen to this album in a number of ways. You could sit and listen to a couple of tracks to help you unwind after a stressful day. You could use it as a meditation practice and listen to it all the way through or just pick a number of tracks to the required amount of time. You could put it on the iPod and listen to tracks at random, interspersed with other music. You could even play it while giving a Reiki session. In any of these contexts, you would receive a certain amount of benefit. The music enters not just through your ears but via your entire vibrational field, and I would not be surprised to learn that it has effects at levels you would barely be aware of.

by Adrian HollandInspirations

The Angel Intuition Deck is very positive and designed for use as both an Angel Healing deck and Tarot Deck. Although it is not directly connected to the major and minor arcana, it does comprise of 78 cards. These cards can be used to give a reading and can be placed in any of the suggested formations, which are the Single Card, the Three-Card Draw or the Celtic Cross.

The author is a Reiki Master and Colour Therapist and has dedicated his life to helping others. All of his artwork is channelled and brings a very positive message of hope and healing. His work is born from love, created in love and given in love.

I was thrilled to receive these cards to review. They come in a small, blue gift box with golden lettering. There are a few cards explaining the deck and how to use the cards and interpret the colours.

The cards are absolutely wonderful to look at and they resonate deeply within me. As an angel artist I truly appreciate the use of colours and shapes on these cards.

This is one of those decks where the cards really need to be looked at and meditated on to have their message come forward. When you use them in a reading you are encouraged to combine the key word with the meanings of the colours of the angel cards.

I have decided to do a three-card draw for all the readers of Paradigm Shift so you can look at them and have them speak to you! The three cards represent past, present and future.

To me this spread signifies that now is the time to reflect upon lessons from the past. Light Workers are encouraged to support each other and ask the angels for support in order to go into the future with an open heart filled with belief!

The author also provides a separate booklet to accompany the deck. It is called Inspirational Angels and is part autobiography and part help guide for using the card deck. It takes you through how Adrian was inspired to create the angels bringing messages of hope and positive thinking, together with affirmations and colour meanings. It was lovely to read about his journey and the meanings of the cards are very helpful. 

I would highly recommend surfing the website and enjoying the beautifully, inspired Angelic Art.

This books provides simple and practical reflexology techniques for developing good health and inner peace. It will enable you to learn to treat yourself and others in a few days, with one of the simplest but very effective healing techniques.

Hand reflexology is one of the most well-known and respected complementary therapies, practised in many hospitals, surgeries, hospices, health and healing centres, and is enjoying growing popularity. Healing Hands explains the simple techniques of Hand Reflexology so clearly, with the aid of illustrations, that “within a few days the reader could be competently treating themselves or others”. If you are interested in learning the practical techniques this book is for you.

The book includes the history of reflexology, how it works with the hands and the various things we can do to support the healing process. The reader learns the techniques step by step, they gradually increase their knowledge of anatomy and physiology, together with developing a more accurate awareness of the hand reflexes and how to treat them accurately and successfully.

I read this book after having had the experience of experiencing wonderful healing though feet reflexology done by a therapist. This book enables me as a reader to work with reflexology to further support my healing. The book is easy to read and well structured. I love the additions about the combination with other healing modalities such as Reiki, Bach Flower Remedies and Aromatherapy giving the reader the possibility to work more and more holistic on healing of self and others.
