The chakra system has existed for thousands of years, but few people understand chakras and how they affect you every day. Understanding and balancing your chakras is the key to better health and freeing yourself from fears and limitations.
What Are The Chakras?
There are seven major chakras beginning at the base of your spine and traveling up through the top of your head and each one corresponds to a nerve center and major organ. In a nutshell, they’re your energy centers and every living creature has them.
When they’re balanced, you may not notice anything. When any or all of your chakras are out of balance, there’s an “out-of-sorts” thing going on.
Since the body, mind and spirit are all connected, an out-of-sorts chakra system can eventually lead to physical dis-ease such as indigestion or headaches.
According to Inward Journey, the chakras are part of your “subtle anatomy” which means you can’t see them.
The word “chakra” has its roots in the Sanskrit language coming from the Hindus thousands of years ago. The Hindus thought of the chakra as a wheel of spinning energy, or energy center, where consciousness resides governing various attributes of individual physical and spiritual aspects. The chakras are not physical but part of the “subtle anatomy” or what you may simply think of as an energetic point of consciousness within the body where the spirit and physical worlds meet.
So even though chakras aren’t tangible, your energy flows through them.
