How Healthy Are Your Chakras?

Just like any other body part, the Chakras have warning signs letting you know they need a little attention. If you pay attention to the signs and signals then you can address them long before the bodymind crosses the stress threshold and FORCES you to deal. Once the threshold is crossed you will begin to experience physical symptoms in the body. If you are already experiencing physical symptoms then it will be important to give your chakra system some much needed attention.

“The state of wonder is an ability to look at the big picture, to be able to sift through and focus on only the most critical information without the usual self-judgement or assumptions. Wondering is the art of letting go all that you know to be true, especially that which you are certain about and have experienced. It is giving yourself the space and time to be curious and see blocks or problems from a different angle.” - iWonder
