Learn how to open blocked chakras.
The word chakra means wheel in Sanskrit. Each chakra is connected to the next and creates loops of energy surrounding the body. Discovering how to open blocked chakras allows you to live your life in a calmer, less stressful, more relaxed and enjoyable way. Every energy centre represents this or that aspect of your life.
