What are Chakras?

The word Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “circle”, and it refers to the individual circular spinning wheels of energy located throughout the body.

Within our bodies, we have seven of these major energy centres; root chakra, sacral chakra, solar plexus chakra, heart chakra, throat chakra, brow chakra and crown chakra. Each chakra corresponds to part of our physical bod, nervous system, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.

 

While each chakra has its own distinct properties, they're all thought to work as a system. That means if one's out of balance, it affects all the rest. For instance, if you have a blocked throat chakra, you might also experience difficulties with your heart chakra—since you’re not able to communicate what you feel and are likely sitting with those emotions.


Sometimes chakras become blocked because of stress, emotional or physical problems. If the body’s ‘energy system’ cannot flow freely it is likely that problems will occur. The consequence of irregular energy flow may result in physical illness and discomfort or a sense of being mentally and emotionally out of balance.
