Understanding our life’s energy centers is the first step to a balance and healthy physical and spiritual life.
The Chakras are wheels of spinning energy with a circular shape form which exist throughout our energetic / etheric body. There are 7 main Chakras and 21 minor Chakras grouped under different types. The main Chakras are located along the spine and connect the energetic to the physical body.
Each Chakra is associated with a certain organ and has specific qualities corresponding to our psychological, emotional and spiritual levels.
If the Chakras are opened and aligned, the energy of life called Prana can freely flow by keeping our physical and etheric bodies balanced, healthy and alive.
