These are the points where the subtle bodies meet with the Universe. The spiritual philosophy goes that these centers of power become entangled with negativity over time and they become blocked. Our chakras can also become overpowered or underpowered – both of these states can cause disease or physical ailments. Furthermore, blocked or underpowered chakras can harm the life of a person.

For example, a person with a blocked crown chakra can suffer from a weak connection with the Source. It may be challenging to establish a regular and healthy spiritual life.
