What are Chakras?

All living things have seven energy centers along the length of their bodies called chakras. The word “chakra” has Hindu (Sanskrit) roots and means “wheel or disk.” As long as energy is flowing strongly, the body is healthy. When the chakra energy is interrupted or blocked, that area is at risk for dis-ease or dis-association. Chakra balancing or energy medicine involves understanding how to ensure and how to restore the energy flow in the body. Chakras are responsible for physical, mental, and spiritual functions. Once you know how your energy flow, you can restore positive energy flow.

How Do Your Chakras Serve You?

There are seven main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra correlates to specific body physical functions. In addition to the physical aspect, each chakra also houses our mental and emotional strengths. When we have a physical issue, it also creates weaknesses in our emotional behavior.

By clearing stagnant energy, we can balance our personal energy. If we hold on to too many negative emotions, such as fears and anxiety, these negative emotions can cause physical, emotional restrictions while disconnecting us from our spirit.
