Shumsky, Susan. Earth Energy Meditations: Awaken Your Root Chakra

Weiser Bks. Jan. 2021. 224p. ISBN 9781578637034. pap. $15.95. PARAPSYCH
Drawing from the spiritual practices of Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, and North and South American Indigenous peoples, Shumsky (The Big Book of Chakras and Chakra Healing) provides a wide range of guided meditations, visualizations, and affirmations intended to reconnect and ground the reader in the healing properties of earth energy. Identifying Highly Sensitive Persons as those who are emotionally, spiritually, and even physically thrown off by our overly media-saturated world, Shumsky gears the meditations toward resolving specific issues that may cause suffering. Not intended to be literal cures, the meditations, physical movements, and breathing exercises cover physical and psychic protection; recovering health; developing wisdom; letting go of people, things, or beliefs that are no longer useful; manifesting wealth; and even dealing with astral entities (often referred to as ghosts) that are problematic. The meditations and visualizations are beautifully and poetically written, meant to be read aloud or into a personal device to be listened to repeatedly.
VERDICT Meditators of all experience and skill level, metaphysical thinkers and seekers, and those who take issue with the distractions of media hype will find this collection of meditations to be both practical and inspiring.
