OUR CHAKRA ENERGY CENTERS
I used to think chakra energy was a little too woo for my blood. When experiencing health challenges in my twenties, I began to observe a strong, undeniable connection between the origin of my ill health and that of its chakra energy center.
Energy is the lifeblood of our bodies in every sense and system. Yet I had chosen to neglect a core element of my energy simply because I couldn’t understand it.
This valuable lesson led me deeper into studying chakra energy and its connection to my health and life contribution.
I now enjoy collaborating with others in exploring their own chakra energy, its wisdom, and its connection to their unique courage in practice.
how does chakra energy connect with courage in practice?
Our energy holds a unique connection to our conscious courage in practice. As you review this resource, observe your relationship to each chakra and its connection to the way you practice courage in its corresponding area. Our bodies will illuminate where we desire to practice more courage in powerful ways when we pause to listen.
