THE 7 CHAKRAS

There are seven power centers in your body, called chakras. The state of each chakra reflects the health of a particular area of your body. It also reflects your psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Every thought and experience you've ever had in your life gets filtered through these chakra databases. Each event is recorded into your cells. In other words, &quotyour biography becomes your biology." When chakra energy is blocked or misdirected, emotional and physical illness can arise.

Explore your seven power centers and see how they reflect what's happening in your body, in your life:

  • - Intuitively diagnose your energy
  • - Unplug from negative thoughts and perceptions
  • - Live as a healthier, more empowered person

Begin your exploration with chakra one -- the root chakra, source of all lessons related to your material world. Use the colored circles to navigate your way on your journey through the chakras:
