Identifying & Understanding the Symptoms of Blocked Chakras
by Conscious Reminder /From consciousreminder.com: The system of chakras in the human body is quite important as it is a channel through which we can clearly understand the interconnectedness of the physical body and spiritual body. The English word for the Sanskrit word chakra is ‘wheel’. Such a name is given because every connection of chakra is in turn linked to the next in a manner that it creates a loop of energy surrounding the body. When you are troubled by illness in some part of your body, then there will be a correlated block or weakness in your chakras. If you are aware of the connections of the body parts with the chakras, you can better address the energy source of physical and emotional ailments.
