What is the chakra system?

What is the chakra system?

Even if you’re new to the spiritual or intuitive world you have probably heard the terms chakra or chakra system quite a bit. The chakra system is made of up energy centers within our bodies. Each of these energy centers directly corresponds to physical ailments, emotions, and even spiritual blocks.

The work chakra translates from Sanskrit to mean “wheel” and when translated from Hindu means “spinning wheel of energy”. I like to think of them as mini vortices within the body.

Our chakras often get unbalanced and when this happens we can experience physical and emotional discomfort. We can even manifest disease. The deeper you dig into spirituality and intuition, the more you find that it is incredibly important to work with your chakras on a regular basis. This helps to maintain a healthy system overall – mind, body, and spirit!

To keep your chakras balanced you must first know what each chakra does and where it is located in the body.
