O

ur energy body, or the light body, is attached to our physical body through energy points, what we call chakras. Each chakra represents different energy, force, emotions, physical organs, and their functions. The light body carries information about how to build our body, our mind, and our emotional body. If something becomes imbalanced, either in this life, other timelines (past lives), or in our ancestral lines, it will be there as an imprint. This imprint can either be active or sleeping and is what attracts energy from our subconscious. You can see it manifested in patterns, for example, in relationships, friendships, work, or health. These are the programs that, in the example of relationships, can keep you attracting the same kind of partner. These imprints guide you when you ask yourself questions like “Why is this happening?” when you can’t see what something has to do with a subconscious wound or program. Different wounds and programs are linked to different chakras because the chakras also represent our stages in life.
