The 7 influencers of your life
Each of your Chakras has its own unique “personality”, each controlling a specific aspect of your life. So if you’re experiencing any form of physical or mental shortcomings, limitations or challenges in your life, there’s a high chance one of your Chakras is weak or closed.
But how do you tell which of your Chakras are strong, and which need repairing? Simple–take a good look at the circumstances in your life.
