The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy

All healers are “energetic” healers, whether they know it or not. Because every health issue has a physical and an energetic component, even a simple physical treatment like bandaging a cut also impacts the body’s spiritual, mental, and emotional welfare. The Subtle Body is a comprehensive encyclopedia devoted to the critical world of our invisible anatomy, where so much of healing actually occurs. Compiled by intuitive healer and scholar Cyndi Dale, this 500-page full color illustrated reference book covers: What is the “subtle body”? New scientific understanding of our quantum-state existence and the unseen fields that determine our physical condition; True integrative care: how combining Eastern energetic modalities with Western scientific rigor yields optimum results; The meridians, fields, and chakras: detailed information and diagrams about the role of these energetic structures in our overall health; Energy-based therapy principles from the world’s healing traditions including Ayurveda, Qigong, Reiki, Quabalah, and many more.

    This review is from: The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy (Paperback)

    The Subtle Body is a truly outstanding 5 star book, and a masterpiece of publishing and easy readability. In my view, it is an essential book on the subject of subtle energy and health/disease. The book is subtitled An Encyclopedia Of Your Energy Anatomy, however it is that and MUCH MORE. The book is beautifully and clearly written; and subdivided into 6 parts containing 40 chapters each addressing essential fundamental information on energy structures and systems – (the fields, channels, and bodies) — that underpin our physical bodies and physical reality. Additionally, this book explores means of accessing the tools and techniques used to energetically modify (heal) dis-ease and illness examining techniques used in ancient times as well as today’s contemporary theories of subtle energy. The 10 pages of Notes allows for additional detailed reading on any area of special interest. The extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book. The many color illustrations are of the highest caliber and clarity; plus the publisher used high quality paper in the book imparting a wonderful feel to the reader.
    On a personal note, I am a practicing physician with over 30 years experience as a specialist treating patients with pharmaceuticals and surgery. However, over the years I begin to wonder why some patients healed, and others with the same diagnosis and treatment did not heal. A quest for greater knowledge sparked a journey that ultimately lead me to discover Cyndi Dale and her work in healing. There are many books now in print on subtle energy, however, this book by Cyndi Dale is by far the most comprehensive, most researched, and best written book I have seen on the subject. In my view it is essential reading for anyone who desires to participate in the next revolution in medicine.

    This review is from: The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy (Paperback)

    I have bought many different energy based books, and used different energy based techniques, with great results.

    Quantum Touch taught me the importance of breath and how to move energy, and the principles of resonance and entrainment. EFT taught me how to release negative emotions within two minutes by tapping on specific energy points. Reiki taught me the importance of healing touch, and using Universal Life Force energy effortlessly.

    Matrix Energetics taught me the importance of intention, and active imagination. I could go on, Qigong, Reiki, Touch of healing, Yoga, Tibetans, Huna..

    Here we have a visually stunning book, with great diagrams throughout. It offers a complete energy system overview, and numerous diagrams, and chapters on anatomy, and the different medical systems. It’s important to understand how energy correleates with anatomy, and this book does a great job of that.

    It gives an overview of different practices. I particularly liked reading about shiatsu, which was discovered by a 7 year old Japanese boy who healed his mother of rheumatism, and I loved the explanation and diagrams of Reflexology. In addition, the description of chakras and how they work, and what each one means is displayed in a very easy to assimilate format. Visually compelling.

    You can also learn about Reiki, Qigong, and many others.

    In educating us on many different practices within one volume, we get the big picture, and so it is not a specialist book. For example, you will learn what EFT is but not the tapping routine. If you’re like me, there are a couple of places where you might like more detail. If it had a bit more detail such as the tapping routine, I would definitely give it five stars.

    If you wish to explore energy medicine more, I recommend:

    The Energy Medicine Kit by Donna Eden, which shows energy testing being demonstrated, energy zipups and more advanced techniques, including a five minute daily routine to boost your energy.

    Quantum-Touch: The Power to Heal (Third Edition) by Richard Gordon.

    Life Energy: Using the Meridians to Unlock the Hidden Power of Your Emotions by John Diamond MD, one of the best books I have read on energy medicine, and a complete manual.

    The Touch of Healing: Energizing the Body, Mind, and Spirit With Jin Shin Jyutsu by Alice Burmeister. It’s Jin Shin Jitsu, a complete system, very easy to learn and use.

    The EFT Manual (EFT: Emotional Freedom Techniques)by Gary Craig is a simple tapping process useful for letting go of troubling emotions. Imagine easily letting go of issues such as anger, anxiety, fear, forgiveness, stress, procrastination, traumas. […], and buy various books on Amazon.

    The Emotion Code by Bradley Nelson. Another complete system for releasing trapped emotions using magnets discovered by a chiropractor. A very well written book.

    I hope this was helpful.

    Excellent Resource–Energetic Anatomy, February 21, 2009

    This review is from: The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy (Paperback)

    This 2009 book is a wonderful resource book for those interested in understanding the methodology of healing the energy/light body (which also affects the physical body). There is a treasure chest of information here that you often have to go to multiple books to find. It is explained in simplistic language and in a beautifully illustrated 488 page book, approximately 8″ x 10″ in size.

    This wonderfully informative book begins with Universal Energy and Energy Healing, and moves to the Human Anatomy (human cell, DNA nebula, electromagnetic field of the heart), then on to Energy Fields (subtle energy fields, global ley lines, magnetic field of the body, sine wave, Fibonacci sequence, merkaba, platonic solids, layers of the auric field, etc.) , then to Channels of Energy and Channels of Light (various meridians, the 5 Chinese Elements, emotions and organs, food and emotions, etc.).

    Next is Energy Bodies: Chakras and Other Light Switches (the charkas in detail, various other charka systems–Cherokee, Tibetan, Incan, Egyptian/African, Kundalini an 12 Chakra System, The Tree of Life: The 10 Sephiroth, The Sephiroth and Chakric Associations, etc.) Following is the section on Energy Practices (Acupuncture, Gemstones, Color Therapy, Shiatsu, Buddhist mudras, latitudinal cross-zones, reflexology, sound and color, etc.)

    Another feature I like about this book is that it names names, so you know what to search on to find more information on the specific subject matter. For example, let’s say you were reading about Sound Healing, on page 401. As you go through facts such as how “. . .In the 1970s, researcher Fabion Mamon sounded a tuning fork on a cancer cell. The cell dissolved. . . ” and the additional information that follows to help you understand the relationship between sound and healing, you can easily google “Fabion Mamon” if you want additional information on the subject matter. The subchapter also mentions Jonathan Goldman, as a respected sound therapist and author for energetically based sound therapies. If you want to know more, you can search on Jonathan right here on Amazon and pull up some of his CDs. I even found Alberto Villoldo and the Incan Bands of Power and the luminous energy field in here. Although the book does not specifically mention the Munay-ki rites by name, if you check for Alberto Villoldo on Amazon, his books will come up or you can also google him by name. From there you can read more about the 9 rites and search on where to get them (if you are so inclined).

    Although the book can be very useful to anyone, it is even more useful to someone just beginning to learn about energy bodies and healing because it provides so much knowledge up front, in one resource book. Think of it as a good “Energy 101” course. As the Doctor said in his review–how come some people, with the same illnesses, heal and some do not. Even if you already know a lot, this book still provides a one stop resource for a ton of factual information. Excellent product. On a scale of 1 to 5, worth WAY more than a 5. (How much is your health worth to you?) Do yourself a favor. If even a little piece of you can believe, get this book and read it. This book can provide a lot of information on understanding alternative healing, which you can use to supplement your care. First, you must accept the possibility. Second, you must obtain the knowledge of what is out there. Then, you can begin to make a more informed analysis and decision on your health care needs when you talk with your primary care physician. I have been “into” energy/light body healing since about 1999 and I strongly believe in this stuff. Many people do themselves such a huge disservice. The power of your mind, your belief system, your perception is TRULY awesome! YOUR PERCEPTION IS YOUR REALITY. Believe it. But don’t take my word for it. Read. Read. Read.

    God bless you in your search for truth and wisdom.
