The Spiritual Scientist bridges the gap between science and spirituality, to give you an understanding of how energy works and how you can balance and restore your energies to have a tranquil and peaceful life.
The book covers the scientific concepts of energy and the human body and relates these concepts to their spiritual aspects. The scientific concepts will be written in an accurate and a simple fashion, so you will be able to understand these concepts without having a high degree of scientific knowledge. The book will discuss the scientific concepts first, and then relate these to the spiritual aspects.
The first chapter is an introduction about what energy is in basic terms, with equations and diagrams so you can fully understand that every living thing has its own unique energy.
Chapter 2 describes the energetic aura in detail as this is very important for the reader to fully understand, as the book will focus on spiritual practices that can be used to balance and restore energetic aura, including the chakra system.
Chapter 3 describes the basic anatomy of the human body, and the basic fundamental structures such as a cell and DNA, as well as organs and bodily systems including the endocrine system.
Chapter 4 focuses on the 13 chakras in the body. The 13 chakras are represented in the spiritual scientist’s logo. This chapter will help the reader understand the different chakras in the body and identify where there is a problem or if a chakra is inactive, overactive or imbalanced.
Chapters 5 to 7 describe specific spiritual practices, including crystal healing, reiki and aromatherapy that can be incorporated to ground, balance and restore your chakras.
Chapter 8 covers the brain and mindfulness techniques, including meditations.
The final chapter is a guided step-by step protocol on how you can make your own meditation kit to use on a daily basis.
Throughout the book, there is guided meditations and activities, so you will find it easier to understand the importance of these spiritual practices.
‘Science has not always been split from spirituality – there are many examples of notable scientists who had a deep connection to the spiritual side of life. In more recent years it has been much harder finding men and women of science who are willing to embrace the spiritual dimension. Maria is one of those great pioneering spirits who are stepping forward to heal this painful and artificial schism. The Spiritual Scientist is a much-needed book that bridges the artificial gap between science and spirituality. Most importantly, in this time of spiritual darkness, she helps the reader understand both scientific and spiritual notions of how energy works, which in turn helps restore a sense of faith in the Universe along with a greater experience of balance and harmony within their energy field.’ – Steve Ahnael Nobel, author, book mentor, coach, founder of Soul Matrix Healing (London, UK)
‘Maria is an exceptionally gifted therapist and healer. I had the chance to experience Maria’s work several times and she never stops impressing me. Through her high intuition and sensitivity she mastered her way of tuning into the subtleties of energy of places, people and animals, allowing her to guide her patients through a true path of healing and transformation. Everything in the universe, including thoughts, feelings and all forms of matter, is comprised of energy. With this book Maria takes a step forward to show us how energy, the continuous source of life, is the “missing” link between science and spirituality.’ – Vera Martins, PhD, ND, AMH and reiki master (London, UK)
‘In her book, The Spiritual Scientist, Maria explains the connections of basic scientific principles and spiritual concepts of healing and energy from a degreed biochemist and neurologist’s point of view. Her book is unique in that she creates a bridge for the scientifically-minded person to acquire a foundational learning of spiritual energy and how to use it for healing purposes. A wonderful introduction for anyone who wishes to begin a spiritual practice of energy work.’ – Kris Seraphine-Oster, PhD, author, marketing strategist, business coach (Santa Barbara, USA)
‘As a fellow scientist, Maria Afentakis has captured the heart and soul of Albert Einstein with great effect in this fascinating and informative book. Through Einstein’s ground-breaking teachings and philosophical views, Maria offers the reader two bites of the cherry with a frank scientific explanation translated into a practical, accessible and elegant way for all to understand. The Spiritual Scientist beautifully marries together Einstein’s scientific and spiritual beliefs into the one common denominator: we are all energy.’ – Elizabeth Whiter, author of You Can Heal Your Pet and The Animal Healer (Hassocks, UK)
‘Maria Afentakis has done a brilliant job of taking her complex knowledge of science and breaking it down so that the average person can understand it. She deftly illustrates how science works using everyday examples in a manner that is easy, informative and entertaining. She gives one just enough without overwhelming!
‘At the end of each chapter she brings it home by taking the scientific principle she has illustrated and relays it from a spiritual perspective, giving the reader useful exercises and examples of how to apply this scientific knowledge in a spiritual way. I’m truly amazed! I could read forever and not only learn more about science but also about spirituality!
‘Maria is also very relatable. She shares her own personal experiences – giving us a peek into her world – reminding us that this brilliant scientist is also a human being on a spiritual journey, like the rest of us. If you like learning new things, and have an open mind, you will really enjoy this book!’ – Sharon Prince, international spiritual teacher, intuitive and author (Texas, USA)
