"Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value"
Albert Einstein


Okay, so it’s probably not very clever to derive all of your wisdom from cartoons. Some may even say that getting chakra advice from a children’s show is the equivalent of studying the occult by looking for clues in Harry Potter movies… but we’ve all done it, right?!

I believe it’s important to take information at face value, no matter where it comes from, and on this occasion I think this popular cartoon can make the concepts of the chakras clear and accessible. I would probably give the cleansing onion and banana drink a miss personally.

Enjoy the video, and see the summary of the chakras below, from the point of view of Avatar – The Last Air-Bender, which tells us how we can unblock our energy channels. If you are not comfortable taking information from a children’s cartoon, then you can find more information in this introduction to chakras.
