Why is it Important for me to learn about my Chakras?

The following information is for you to do a self-analysis to help you increase the energy centers that you rated lowest in. By understanding what thoughts or issues may cause a chakra to stagnate (not develop fully) is key in helping you gain more self-knowledge.

The statements below are to help you in your own self-analysis. These questions are for you to reflect on and if you feel that you may be having problems in certain areas then try bringing in color through different methods (See Chakra Energy: Ways to Energize Your Chakras).

For more information or further advice read books on the chakra system (see below for some books that I recommend) or visit a professional aura and chakra counsellor (qualified aura/chakra therapists are trained counsellors such as Aurastar 2000 practitioners or a medical intuitives). Also chakra tools can be found on many sites that sell metaphysical products. One of my favorites is
