Get ready for energy upgrade!

Have you felt disconnected, impatient, depressed, anxious, or as if you just cannot get back to “normal” lately? It is safe to say, you are not alone. You, like many of the rest of us, are still trying to get our bearings straight from the COVID pandemic. Or you have been trying your whole life to figure out why you constantly feel like something is…missing. The answer could lie deep within. So how do we find it?

Within every one of us lies a sacred system that aligns to connect our mind, body, and spirit. Many of you have probably heard or know a little bit about this system. But for those who do not, let me break it down. The system I am referring to is called the Chakra System. The term chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “wheel” or “circle.” They are considered the energy centers of the body which run upwards from the base of the spine to the top of the head. While chakras cannot be physically seen or felt, there are seven of them and each have their own energy, color, element, symbol, aroma, and many other characteristics attached it. It is believed that if there is a blockage to one of these energy centers one is suffering from physical, emotional, and/or psychological disorders. The same can be said if these centers are vibrant and healthy. Chakras can explain so many aspects of who we are, what we feel, and what is needed to become whole as a human being. Below are each of the chakras and a few of their characteristics.
