Chakras aren’t something you can see with the eye.
They form our subtle body.
Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy.
The word Chakra comes from ancient Sanskrit and translates as "wheel".
If you imagine a wheel of luminous colored energy, pulsating, spinning and vibrating, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what a Chakra is.
There are seven main chakras and they each have a specific function in our lives. When any one of these 7 Chakras are out of balance it can affect us physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. Energy flows into the Chakras two ways. Firstly, upward from the base of our spine, through the Root Chakra, and secondly, from above, entering our Crown Chakra and flowing down the Chakras. When Chakras along the path are blocked, energy is prevented from flowing to the rest of the Chakras. When all of the Chakras are open and balanced, we feel a sense of well-being on all levels.
