'This album is the result of my study and research into the use of sounds and music to create inner balance and healing. We are all individually influenced by sound and certain tones can and do affect our chakras.
I wanted to produce an album that not only on a physical level is calming and relaxing, but essentially works on a metaphysical level and alters states of consciousness and awareness. In 1982, David Naegele produced Temple in the Forest which became one of my favourite recordings and a popular choice for therapists. Like David, working with the sound of the forest birds and a gentle flowing stream, I combined the 'temple bell' sound with the 'Ohm' vibration. I then took certain instruments and tones and carefully arranged them to balance a particular chakra flow of energy.
The result is that Journey to the Temple features seven chakra tracks blended together by natural sounds of water and birdsong. Each of the seven tracks is a journey through the seven key chakras. On this special album you will hear a wealth of instruments and sounds (temple bells, chimes, piano, strings, flutes, harps, wind chimes) all carefully and gently mixed into an immensely peaceful meditative soundscape.'Llewellyn
We say: It is possible to meditate on the chakras by closing your eyes while sitting comfortably. Imagine yourself in a sacred space to you, such as in a clearing within a forest. Then starting at the base chakra work your way up through the chakras, visualising each in turn. You can then visualise in your head what colour each chakras is, and any other images that come to mind. Then one by one you can change each chakra to the strong healthy colour they should be.
This album can support this process if you wish or you can use it for background music to all kinds of therapies.

- 7 energetic centres of human body
The chakras are major energetic centres within the human body. There are seven in total. They are:
Solar plexus (Yellow)
When our chakras are healthy and glowing strongly we feel good. By having about us or using chakra products, wearing chakra jewellery or using chakra stones in healing we are giving focus to this state of balance. If we have good intention we may draw situations to us that help us to change and help our chakras to find or remain in balance.

Reviews - rated 4/5 based on customer reviews4 out of 5 By Anne Marie WelchI greatly enjoyed this CD. I played it whilst painting my daughter’s bedroom and by the end of it I was really refreshed and rejuvenated! You can hear the sound of water on all the tracks and the music is made with a synthesiser and piano instruments. Knowing about chakras helps to understand the way the author has composed his music. The chakras in your lower part of the body have a heavier density than the ones in your upper body so the music starts on a lower octave progressively going higher and higher towards your crown chakras. The interesting thing is that I could feel the corresponding chakras working so you know which chakras is balanced as the music is played. My favourite track is the last one. It is probably because my lower chakras are not working properly. I meditate also on this CD and it left me uplifted. I think that this CD is very good at balancing your chakras and if you have emotional problems it would be very helpful to listen to it.
