The chakras are constantly rotating and vibrating. The chakras influence our Body shape, Glandular processes, Chronic physical ailments, our thoughts and behaviour.
How Chakras affect us
When one or more of the chakra is blocked and the energy does not flow harmoniously through them, or it is wide open, an imbalance results that is manifested in all areas of life. Each of the chakras is expressed on the physical body in one of the endocrine glands that regulate physical and emotional processes in the body. An imbalance in the chakra will also be expressed in the endocrine gland linked to it.
