How Do Your Chakras Serve You?
There are seven main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra correlates to specific body physical functions. In addition to the physical aspect, each chakra also houses our mental and emotional strengths. When we have a physical issue, it also creates weaknesses in our emotional behavior.
By clearing stagnant energy, we can balance our personal energy. By holding on to too many negative emotions such as fears and emotions, we can have physical, emotional restrictions and disconnect from our spirit.
