The energy of our chakras influences our physical processes via inhibition and stimulation. Remember, chakras are like wheels whose job is not only to keep energy moving, but also to constrict or close as a defense against negative energy. In order to compensate for a constricted, underactive chakra, another chakra will become overactive, sending out your low-frequency vibes at a greater rate, which then requires further balancing in the chakra healing process. That in turn creates and prolongs a low-frequency reality. If your chakras are these energy centers emitting and absorbing energy, then are they the source of your frequency, or are they the result of it? Are your chakras the chicken or the egg?

I think they're both. I think the dual role of the chakras, in terms of your consciousness and your physical self, really speaks to the relationship between the mind and the body. When you work on the body, the mind comes along for the ride, and vice-versa. It's the same with your frequency and your chakra energy. When you're in ego frequency, it affects the flow of energy within your chakras and your physical and energy body as a whole creating more of a need for energy body and chakra healing, among other things. However, as you clear, clean and heal your chakras by moving energy around, then you are also making a positive change in your frequency.

Just remember, if you're operating on a lower frequency, then 1) you're creating your reality, because your five senses are picking up what you're applying your consciousness to ("This is where we are, find me all the things that reinforce that"), and 2) your resonant frequency is what you're putting out into the quantum field and what you're drawing into yourself through your chakras, impacting your physical state.
