Chakras are non physical energy centers in the body that help maintain balance in our physical, mental and spiritual life forces. The word chakra, is an ancient Sanskirt term that means "wheel of light".
There are 7 major chakras connected to and a part of the physical body. All are located on the torso and head. Each chakra transmits and receives life-force energy often called "chi" (or " qi "), " prana ", or "universal intelligence" . There are also many minor chakras, most of which are located at the joints of the physical body.
If a chakra is out of balance or blocked, then an area of "dis-ease" can develop. This can be caused by a build-up of unacknowledged negative emotions. When we are in a state of ill health, the chakras may be distorted, out of alignment or even stagnant. When this happens, life force energy cannot flow in and out freely, and the physical body may suffer. Stress, inability to express emotions, over emotional expression, beliefs incongruent with Truth, disconnection from a higher power, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise,and exposure to toxicity, can cause the chakra system to close down.
Having your chakras cleared and balanced on a regular basis will help lead to a happy, balanced life.
