Your body has an energy system just like it has a digestive, skeletal, and cardiovascular systems. Your energy system contains chakras, meridians, and pressure points. Meridians are energy channels where, if you have ever had acupuncture, the needles are placed at pressure points. Meridians cover your entire body. Another part of our energy system are chakras, These are energy centers that are placed in certain areas of our bodies and have meanings. Our past feelings, emotions, experiences, and memories are in our chakras and they can create a blockage if not processed and healed. Blocked chakras if not taken care of can manifest into physical problems and affect our health. The thoughts, feelings, experiences, and memories from the past that are stored in our chakras can also unconsciously affect our present lives.
