  1. Hi Gabby!

    Thank you for all this information you have prepared. I did a chakra test and found out my root chakra was blocked
    and my sacral chakra was weak. This information has helped understand why I have pain in my lower back and my
    ankle, and problems with my bladder. Thank you again so much.
