This article is a little crash course in understanding your energy anatomy.
Every person has an energy anatomy, just like you have a physical anatomy. I am sure you have heard of an aura and chakras?
Your aura is your energy field. It is your own personal space. It stretches a full arms length all the way around you, above and below you. Did you know you store energy charges relating to your life experiences in your energy field?
Your chakras are your energy centres which interface with your energy field. Information in the form of energy frequencies are stepped up into your field or stepped down into your body. These energy centres are much like transformers.
Did you know that each energy centre has rights? Did you know that there are certain experiences that can drain the energy from these centres? Did you know that there are certain addiction that can arise as a result of damage?
