This is a rather frustrating book.Frustrating in the fact that Paulson clearly thinks anyone who picks this up will have an advanced degree in both Kundalini and chakras. Only, it did not start off this way. She begins this quite brilliantly actually. She walks you though the process and builds off what she has already established quite well. And knowing that she is a teacher of this, this makes a grand amount of sense.Then somewhere in the 5th or 6th chapter she goes completely off the rails. It is like she forgets she is laying the foundation for someone to recognize and develop and understanding of their chakras, where they are and how they work, and starts talking as if one can go from struggling to understand the location of specific ones to having something akin to the force in an ability to control them.So, yeah.... frustrating. Super effing frustrating...Even more so, as it is more than just slightly apparent that she can converse and write about these things clearly and for an introductory audience. She just does not.My only guess is that this was adapted from a few manuals she teaches from at her meditation/wtfever center, and she did not feel the need to adapt them to initiate level. Alas....That said, I can tell there is quite a bit of value here, and I will return back to this book after some further investigation of this, as it seems like her method to activate one's chakras would be more than a slight boon to work with.I only hope I can get there soon.
