Our chakras are extremely important. These centers in our bodies allow energy or chi to flow as it needs to.
Each chakra is located in a specific part of our body and correlates to a specific dysfunction or health issue if out of balance. Any blockages in these areas can and will lead to illness. It is extremely important to understand all that each chakra brings and represents for every one of us.
When our chakras are open energy is able to flow effortlessly which is EXTREMELY important. If your chakras are out of balance you may be feeling fatigued or even constipated.
