Chakra Meditation Kit
by Monte Farber, Amy Zerner
Monte Farber and Amy Zerner, husband and wife authors and intuitive trainers, have put together a system that can
help us connect with the swirling energies within all of us. Their Chakra Meditation Kit has all of the
tools to do simple meditations every day that can help us free up our energy centers and therefore have more
creativity, focus, and love for ourselves and others around us.
The Chakra Meditation Kit contains a 48 page booklet, an audio CD of guided meditations with music, and
seven contemplation cards based on each of the seven chakras, or energy centers. The cards are photographs of
fabric collages that Zerner created while meditating on each of the chakras. These images help focus the
meditation. The reverse of each card contains a simple affirmation about the quality of the chakra. The booklet
explains what chakras are and how we can benefit from having them freed of blocks and open to energy from the
universe. It also explains how to use the kit, usually beginning our day with the selection of a contemplation
card and then cueing up the appropriate chakra meditation. There are also two extra meditations that clean and
energize all seven chakras. One is a quickie one-minute meditation, and the other is a seven minute cleanse and
Farber and Zerner both use this system every day and attest to its ability to not only help them start each
busy day but also to work on issues or blockages that they are experiencing.
Though I found the meditations and the whole system to be very powerful, especially the Seven-Minute Chakra
Cleanse, personally, I found the music accompanying the meditations to be a distraction. It is all synthesized
music, as far as I can discern. This may not be a problem for others, but I find music very evocative for my own
meditation and yoga work and select it very carefully. With this music, my body wanted to move to the music instead
of letting my mind and spirit do the work. It should be noted, however, that the music was written to correspond
to the sound vibration of each of the different chakras. That was very evident in the tonal qualities of the music.
All in all, I would recommend the Chakra Meditation Kit. It is a vital addition to anyone’s daily
practice, and will become part of my own.
