IF THE STARS should appear one night in a thousand
years, how would men believe and adore…

I often think of the chakras as stars that descended to earth and embedded in our
human form. In some ways, the story of chakras is similar to that of the stars. As
Emerson implies, their presence can be overlooked, ignored, or assumed simply
because they are content to exist, seen or unseen, as surely as day follows night.
But to explore the chakras is to investigate one of the truly great tales of the
universe. I have spent years uncovering its many twists and turns, an array of
stories enfolded within the larger tale. I wrote this book to present a
compendium of these stories pulled together into a single source, a definitive
storybook about chakras.

Chakras are energy centers in our bodies that, when perceived by those of us
who are blessed to be able to see them, look like wheels of light spinning in and
around the body—stars in miniature. Chakras are also “subtle” structures,
meaning that, in many ways, they operate under the radar of most people’s
perception, on a psychic or spiritual level. But they are also intricately
intertwined with our physical and emotional capacities. As key parts of a greater
subtle energetic anatomy that you will learn about in this book, they have no less
important a job to do than to manage all levels of our existence.
Chakras have been studied by hundreds of cultures over thousands of years.
These dynamic energy centers are linked with myriad aspects of our being, from
the body’s electrical system—measurable to an extent with diagnostic and other
medical devices—to subtler categories of vibration such as colors, sounds, and
elements. I call this gigantic basket of chakra ideas—and especially the practices
associated with them—“chakra medicine.” This term honors the traditional
meaning of medicine: the sum total of all knowledge, skills, theories, and
practices we can engage in to increase our well-being. Because chakras manage
all aspects of life, they can be seen as the key to health, happiness, and prosperity.
Chakras have been a subject of study by so many diverse peoples and for so
long that writing a book about chakras could take forever—a never-ending
account that starts in the early mists of time and slips over the horizon ahead. I
have dedicated myself to putting two covers on this eternal story, to serve as
markers; hence, I have aimed to make this book a comprehensive compilation of
the knowledge of chakras and chakra medicine as it exists today, drawing from
sources worldwide, beginning with the ancients and adding information of my
own that I have gained through extensive study and my energy healing practice.
But never fear: we will unfold this massive tale in bite-sized pieces. The
information I will share begins at a basic level and grows in complexity. It is,
therefore, an invitation to learn the fundamentals of “all things chakras” and then
go deeper, ever deeper. Eventually, through your own explorations, I hope that
you will add your own chakra discoveries to our shared wisdom base.
As you travel though this book, you’ll discover that I continually return to the
theme I already introduced: that the chakras in our bodies can be compared to
the stars in our galaxy. I enjoy this beautiful metaphor, but as you dive into the
discussions of the nature of energy in later chapters, you will see that this
connection is more than symbolic. Like our feelings about the stars, chakras
operate at all levels, and most practitioners would agree that they are ultimately
spiritual, pointing the way to our souls’ dreams.

I’ll start by covering the most fundamental aspects of the chakras and how they
perform; this will be the subject of chapters 1 through 15. I open part 1 with a
question: what is a chakra? This entire book has been written to fully answer that
question, but I will first answer it in basic terms. I’ll include a thumbnail sketch
of the history of chakra-related ideas, spanning civilizations and eras, as well as
a review of ancient Hindu ideas about energy, as the venerable Hindu system is
one of the best known today. This information will help you set your discovery
of chakras in a chronological context and reveal the mindset upon which all
modern data has been built. Later in the book we’ll explore these Hindu roots in
much greater depth.
Next I’ll outline scientific thought about the nature of energy. After all, as I
mentioned, chakras are essentially energy centers, so it is helpful to get a
refresher on what we have learned about the physics of energy. Again, this will
be a brief backgrounder that I will expand upon later in the book.
As you’ll soon discover, chakras are powerful tools for spiritual transformation.
While they do play physical and psychological roles in our lives, ultimately
chakras encourage spiritual growth. To begin orienting you to this aspect, I’ll
briefly describe an energetic force that awakens the chakras and paves the way
toward enlightenment. This force is called kundalini energy.
A thorough understanding of chakras requires many more and much deeper
layers of understanding, including an exploration of the nature of the energy in
our bodies; the psychological, intuitive, and physiological effects of the chakras;
the imagery and symbolism people have associated with them; and both
traditional and contemporary views of chakras’ aspects that include everything
from spiritual icons to archetypes. We will begin this in-depth journey in Part 2.
Part 2 examines the most familiar chakra model: the Hindu system. We will
travel through the seven in-body chakras in order, from the base of the spine to
the top of the head. Our first goal is to look at how they function in the most
fundamental of ways: physically and psychologically. We also will begin to add
the layers of knowledge needed for a fuller picture: Sanskrit names, purpose,
color, associated gland, and the part of the body that each chakra manages. I’ll
outline practical considerations, including related diseases and psychological
functions, and move into more esoteric topics such as the gods and goddesses
that reign within each bodily star. Symbols, archetypes, intuitive abilities, and
explorations of secondary chakras, as well as other features, 
help round out our chakra profiles.
We then turn the corner to engage in Part 3, Fundamentals of Chakra Medicine.
Here you will learn chakra medicine procedures and techniques. The first
chapter in this part introduces the concept of chakra medicine: practices you can
follow to work with chakras for greater health and well-being. You will learn
various ways chakras can assist you, and I’ll provide a plethora of processes you
can use to do everything from locating your chakras to clearing and balancing
them. Practices are loosely organized into Western and Eastern approaches.
Then it will be time to walk through the next doorway and into Section 2,
Chakras in Depth: Historical, Scientific, and Cross-Cultural Understandings. Up
to this point, you will have spent your time with the book learning and enjoying
all the basics of chakra methodology as if peering through a telescope into the
great night sky. Section 2 is the equivalent of getting into a spaceship and
actually flying to those stars, carrying precise equipment such as spiritual
treatises, finely tuned microscopes, and geographic maps. You will embark upon
a thorough review of the history of chakra concepts, examining Vedic, tantric,
and yogic chakra legends stretching as far back as 12,000 BCE. This history,
which we’ll cover in Part 4, will prepare you for part 5: The Science of Subtle Energy.
Part 5 kicks off with a primer on physical and subtle energy that reviews
relevant classical and quantum physics and all things scientific about the nature
of energy. With a better understanding of the energetic scenery in which chakras
grow, you will be ready to picture chakras within their larger familial structure:
your entire energetic anatomy. To truly work with chakras, you must also place
them within the physical body, which you will examine to better understand the
chakras’ unique structure. Finally, you will devote your time to the scientific
explanation of kundalini, the force that activates the chakras.
Then it’s around the world you go, plunging into a deeply meaningful odyssey
in Parts 6 through 8. Chakras are not exclusively Hindu in origin; they have
appeared in jungles, deserts, mountains, and seasides around the world and
across time. In addition, they are the subject of modern academic, spiritual, and
philosophical disciplines. Dozens of chakra systems are outlined and explained
within the context of their spiritual and cultural surroundings. On this aroundthe-
world tour, you will visit Asia, discover the ancient chakra systems of
Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas, and investigate modern
Western chakra systems.
Unique and contemporary chakra concepts and systems are the subject of Part
9, Chakras Et Cetera: Natural and Unusual Chakras, coverage of the relationship
between chakras and the earth, animals, and skies, as well as an analaysis of
contemporary and emerging chakra systems. Does the earth itself have chakras?
What about animals? This fascinating review is followed by a one-two-three of
recent and unusual chakras that are just making their way into our common
chakra medicine bag.
As will become clear throughout your pilgrimage, chakras are nothing new—
and they are always new; we never complete our chakra adventure. These points
of light touch every aspect of our lives as embodied reflections of the starry sky
we gaze upon when we count our blessings.

The Astonishing Science of How Your Brain Creates Material Reality

Dawson Church

Praise for Mind to Matter

“If you’ve been wondering whether your thoughts really do affect your life, this
marvelous book will make you a believer. From the level of the atom to the level
of our bodies to the level of the galaxies, Dawson Church’s painstaking research
shows that mind is profoundly creative. Synthesizing hundreds of studies in the
fields of biology, physics, and psychology, he shows that moment by moment, the
energy fields of our brains are literally creating reality. These insights can have
a radical effect on your health and prosperity, and I highly recommend you
apply them in your life.”
— John Gray, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Men Are from Mars,
Women Are from Venus
“We have entered an era of healing in which the influence of consciousness in
health and illness is being validated as never before. For a view of these crucial
insights, researcher Dawson Church’s Mind to Matter is invaluable.”
— Larry Dossey, M.D., author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part
of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
“Dawson Church’s careful scientific work shows that the Law of Attraction isn’t
just a metaphysical proposition—it’s a scientific reality. Drawing from hundreds
of studies, and illustrated with inspiring real-life stories, it demystifies the
intricate mechanisms by which thoughts become things. As the boundaries of
what you believe is possible for your life are stretched by Dawson’s work, they
may never snap back to their old shape.”
— Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Happy for No Reason
“I love this book. It constantly fascinated me with delicious facts and so many
captivating stories. And it is wonderful to see science catching up with what the
shamans and sages have always known!”
— Donna Eden, author of Energy Medicine
“Once in a long while, a profoundly disruptive vision shatters the scientific
paradigm, refocuses the entire way we see the world, and opens up vast new
horizons of human potential. For our generation, this book is that vision.”
— Raymond Aaron, New York Times best-selling author of Chicken Soup for the
Parent’s Soul
“Dawson Church has again proven himself to be one of the great thinkers of our
time, demystifying the most complex principles in the universe that influence our
lives, with a story-telling ability that makes it all fun and easy to understand. By
weaving eye-opening research into engaging, heart-warming stories, an
awareness emerges of the power your own mind has to not only direct your life
but influence the collective consciousness of the universe itself which binds us
together as one.”
— Robert Hoss, co-author of Dreams That Change Our Lives; Director,
DreamScience Foundation
“This groundbreaking book presents the exciting new scientific evidence
demonstrating that our thoughts have a direct impact on the world around us,
and it shows us how to harness this knowledge for joyful and effective lives.”
— David Feinstein, Ph.D., co-author of Personal Mythology
“I believe that Mind to Matter is one of the most important books ever written.
Chapter after chapter it shows us how we are masters of our bodies and the
world around us. It’s filled with mind-blowing research that has completely
changed the way I approach my life. The results I’m getting by applying the
techniques are astonishing. They can transform your mind and the world of
matter around you. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.”
— Matt Gallant, author of Triple Your Productivity
“Mind to Matter challenges the core principles of modern medicine and
conventional science. Dawson Church makes a compelling case that the
mind/body link is more profound than we ever suspected, and that science must
expand its paradigm to include forces like consciousness, resonance, and
energy. Profusely illustrated, the book includes an impressive compendium of
research citations, from classic papers to recent breakthroughs. Many practical
examples and exercises provide tools to work on our own personal
transformation and, if the book’s thesis of interconnection is correct, our social
transformation as well. I highly recommend this book.”
— Eric Leskowitz, M.D., Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
“Dawson Church has been a pioneer in the field of healing for decades, his
research far ahead of its time. His book Mind to Matter is perfectly timed for an
era in which people are opening up to the science and research behind energy
techniques. Dawson offers a brilliant and insightful guide to how our thoughts
create our reality. Packed with fascinating history from the dawn of evolution to
the latest brain research, his work is a blueprint for both experts and nonprofessionals
looking for effective healing strategies. Dawson succinctly shows
us not just that these methods work, but the empirical basis for how they work. If
you have ever wanted to learn the science of manifestation and how your
thoughts affect your material world, this book is a must-read. It will change your
thoughts, and applying these principles every day will in turn change your
reality. The question is—what will you create after you read it?”
— Peta Stapleton, Ph.D., School of Psychology, Bond University, Australia
“Many in our culture are shifting from powerless victims to powerful cocreators.
Yet as this evolutionary impulse toward greater power emerges, we are
coming face to face with what happens when power is abused. As we face global
crises of unpredictable proportions, we need heart-based creators of deep
integrity in touch with their power now more than ever. What would be possible
in our lives and on our planet if we connected our power with our hearts? What
does science have to say about such manifesting power? Mind to Matter
explores this edge of how our power to participate in the co-creation of reality
functions from the scientific perspective. It also calls us out on how to avoid
overstating our human power, as so many ‘law of attraction’ books mistakenly
promise. As our power grows, we are called to acknowledge with humility the
paradoxical nature of how powerful we are as creators, yet how uncontrollable
the great Mystery really is. May those who read this book step fully into their
power, their hearts, and their integrity, and may the world be blessed by how
this book affects you.”
— Lissa Rankin, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Mind Over Medicine

Metaphysics Meets Science
Thoughts become things. This is manifestly true. I am sitting on a chair right
now. It began as a thought in someone’s mind—every detail of it. The frame, the
fabric, the curves, the color.

Thoughts become things. This is manifestly untrue. I will never be a
quarterback for the National Football League, no matter how earnestly I think
about it. I will never be 16 years old again. I will never pilot the starship Enterprise.
Between the ways in which thoughts become things and the ways in which
thoughts can never become things there is a wide middle ground.
This book explores that middle ground.

Why? We want to be able to create to the outermost limits of our thought,
expanding our lives to the limits of our potential. We want to be as happy,
healthy, wealthy, wise, fulfilled, creative, and loved as possible. We also don’t
want to chase pipe dreams, thoughts that are never going to become things.
When we apply the rigorous standards of science to the inquiry, that middle
ground turns out to be enormous. Research shows us that with thought, used
deliberately, we can create things beyond the ordinary.

The idea that thoughts are things has become a meme in popular culture. It’s
held as a firm proposition in metaphysics, and some spiritual teachers ascribe
infinite powers to the mind. Yet there are clearly limits to human creative
abilities; I cannot manifest an aircraft carrier simply by thinking about one. I
cannot become Indonesian, jump over Mount Everest, or turn lead into gold.
New discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology,
cymatics, public health, and quantum physics, however, are showing that
thoughts can be profoundly creative. The page or device on which you now read
these words began as a thought. So did democracy, the bikini, space travel,
immunization, money, the four-minute mile, and the assembly line.

Science and metaphysics are generally considered to be polar opposites.
Science is experimental, practical, rigorous, empirical, materialistic, objective,
and intellectual. Metaphysics is spiritual, experiential, abstract, mystical,
ephemeral, internal, irreplicable, imprecise, subjective, otherworldly,
impractical, and impossible to prove. Science studies the world of matter while
metaphysics seeks to transcend it.

I have never perceived science and metaphysics as separate and have
delighted in being both a mystic and a scientific researcher. When I bring the
rigor of science to the questions of consciousness, each illuminates the other.
This book examines the science behind the creative powers of the mind. It
reviews the studies that show, step-by-step, exactly how our minds create
material form. As each piece of the puzzle falls into place, the science turns out
to be even more astonishing than the metaphysics.

This book is also full of case histories—real, up close, authentic personal
accounts of people who had an experience of mind-into-matter. Drawn from the
worlds of medicine, psychology, sports, business, and scientific discovery, these
stories run the gamut from profound to inspiring to heart-wrenching. They show
us that thoughts can become things in ways that stretch the fabric of our spacetime reality.

A lifelong activist, in 2005 he co-founded GetUp!, an Australian political organization with more members than all of Australia’s political parties combined, and he is a co-founder of the global campaigning organization Avaaz and the LGBT rights platform All Out.

Under his leadership, the 144-year-old institution was named to Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies” list. He is the co-founder of #GivingTuesday, a global philanthropic movement that engages people in close to 100 countries that has generated hundreds of millions of dollars for good causes. He is a visiting fellow at
Stanford PACS Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society.

Power, as philosopher Bertrand Russell puts it, is the “ability to produce intended effects.”
That ability is now in all of our hands. Today, we have the capacity to make films, friends, or
money; to spread hope or spread our ideas; to build community or build up movements; to spread
misinformation or propagate violence—all on a vastly greater scale and with greater potential
impact than we did even a few years ago.
Yes, this is because technology has changed. But the deeper truth is that we are changing. Our
behaviors and expectations are changing. And those who have figured out how to channel all this
energy and appetite are producing Russell’s “intended effects” in new and extraordinarily impactful ways.

Think of the hoodie-clad barons who sit atop online platforms a billion users strong, tweaking
our daily habits, emotions, and opinions. The political neophytes who have raised passionate
crowds and won stunning victories. The everyday people and organizations who are leaping
ahead in this chaotic, hyperconnected world—while others fall back.
This book is about how to navigate and thrive in a world defined by the battle and balancing of
two big forces. We call them old power and new power.
Old power works like a currency. It is held by few. Once gained, it is jealously
guarded, and the powerful have a substantial store of it to spend. It is closed,
inaccessible, and leader-driven. It downloads, and it captures.
New power operates differently, like a current. It is made by many. It is open,
participatory, and peer-driven. It uploads, and it distributes. Like water or
electricity, it’s most forceful when it surges. The goal with new power is not to
hoard it but to channel it.

To start to see how old and new power work, here are three very different stories.
