what are chakras?

There are 7 major energy centers in the human body known as chakras. In Sanskrit, chakra translates into “wheel”. These “wheels” can be thought of as vortexes that both receive & radiate energy. They run from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, & along the way each chakra resides next to & corresponds to a different hormonal gland. Emotions, physical health, & mental clarity affect how well each chakra can filter energy. This in turn dictates how pure the energy is that’s emitted from different regions of the body.

What does it mean to receive & radiate energy from your chakras?

The way you think, feel, & act affects your chakras. Chakras receive whatever energy you allow in. They respond to that energy, & the way you project yourself, feel, & think is a direct reflection of that. It is a very powerful & interrelated system. This interrelatedness, is also what causes a balanced or imbalanced chakra in one region to positively or negatively affect things up & down the chain.

Becoming aware of your chakras can be very transformative- allowing you to grown, heal, & connect to a higher source. There are actually many chakras within the body & throughout the universe, but a significant amount of healing & growth can occur when we focus on the 7 major chakras.
