The word “Chakra” derives from the Sanskrit word which means “Wheel” and the literal translation from Hindi, means “Wheel of Spinning Energy”. If you will, please imagine a chakra as a vortex-like, center of energy. Within our bodies, you have seven of these major energy centers and many more minor ones. This post is about the major energy centers that everyone knows as the seven chakras.
Chakras are our Energy Centers
Chakras are the energy centers of our bodies. Studying them is for the purpose of bringing greater awareness, balance, good-will, and overall contentment and happiness.
You may think of them as invisible, rechargeable, energy points that need maintenance on a regular basis. Yet, to many in the Western world, this type of thinking is foreign and incomprehensible. However, over the past 50 years, there is a strong resurgence of curiosity and practice of Eastern cultures and philosophy.
Life Flows Smoothly with Balance
Imagine the flow of energy from the 1st chakra (root chakra) to the 7th chakra (crown chakra). This is your whole being’s main source of energy and what keeps you balanced or unbalanced. Moreover, when all your chakras are in a state of balance and harmony, the energy flows smoothly and life is good.7 Chakras • Colors • Minerals • Chants Click To Tweet
