Why should you learn about the Animal Chakra system you ask?
The chakra system is made up of a series of energy centers throughout the body that play an important role in an animal’s overall health & well-being. When imbalances or blockages occur in these energy centers, it can result in physical, emotional, or behavioral issues. Pinpointing and addressing these can bring the animal back to a state of balance and optimum health.
While there are said to be many more chakras in & around the body, the animal system is made up of 8 major chakras. Let’s start at the top & take a look!

THIRD EYE (AJNA)
Located on the front of the head, just above the eye
It is associated physically with the pituitary gland, ears, eyes, nose, and fur/skin
