I'm very familiar with energy work.
Israel Regardie's "The Art of True Healing" helped me make a whole lot of connections.
This work is kind of a blending of chakras, creative visualization, Kabbalah, magick, and self-hypnosis. And mantras. And color therapy (sort of).
It helped me make sense of some Kabbalah terminology, and gave me a working basis for the Tree of Life's Middle Pillar.
If you're new to Kabbalah, I.R. helps you to begin to practice an otherwise way-over-thought and way-over-described system of beliefs.
At least, he helped me. :)
