NOTE:  This book has works related to self pleasure and sexual energy.  Reader discretion is advised.

Generally I like to start out with a disclaimer. I am an atheist witch.  I look for the connection between magic and science without the need for a deity. I receive no compensation for these reviews and all my links are standard Amazon links and not affiliate links. I am a practicing photo reader and have spent the last 13 years honing my craft.  I offer personal readings by request and have a strong online history that boasts nearly 400,000 views.

As with my other reviews I'm going to start with the review of the physical book.  This is a sizable book. It has a large hard cover with colorful imagery which lends itself to be a nice additional to a coffee table book or entry way addition.  There are large full color photo quality images in the book that are simply breathtaking.  Crystals, herbs and photos of the female human body are placed strategically through out the book and are very practical references to the subject matter.  Crystal definitions and descriptions as well as tasteful representations of sensual magic are in abundance.

The back of the book houses my favorite section of any real reference book, the index.  It includes an about the author section, an index and a list of resources. My favorite part is on page 200.  The Crystals for specific needs section is laid out in table format and allows the reader to check a column for a specific crystal and see what Chakra, Zodiac, Element, Color energy and physical/emotional benefits of each.  The chart advises that amethyst is associated with the Third Eye/Crown chakra, Aquarius, the elements air, water, the color energy of violet and calms anxious energy as well as quieting the mind to allow messages from a higher realm.  The index also includes a list of Chakra characteristics, resources and acknowledgements.

The author takes the reader on a journey in learning how we are sexual beings. On the heels of tantric magic or sex magic the author allows us to accept that individually we are sexual beings. Though out the book the author reminds us that some may be more sensitive to these energies.  Bluntly put, this book is about self love and self pleasure. The author asks that while we may remain skeptical that we try the exercises in the book to become familiar with our own bodies.

After a few sections on the crystal energies and the chakras the author breaks down each chakra for the reader providing an entire section on Healing exercises and rituals to help remove the initial resistance we may have to this path and guide us into harnessing the power within to bring forth the changes we desire.

Chapters six through twelve are broken down into specific chakras with rituals, healing routines and detailed info on each.

Overall a really great additional to a healing and wellness library.  This book is dedicated to the feminine and the imagery and illustrations are fantastic.
