Chakras : Let’s start from the beginning
Having its roots in Sanskrit, an ancient language in Hinduism, Chakras are centers of energy that we find through our bodies. Translated, the word Chakra literally means “wheel” since it acts as a vortex, a disk of spinning energy in which consciousness and matter fulfill. At the core of each of us, spin a couple of rhythms but we will begin with the main seven ones.
The main seven chakras are aligned along the spine starting from the base up into the crown of their head. And naturally, your system being beautifully made, you guessed that Chakras aren’t found just randomly. Certainly not. In fact, every of them corresponds to a huge nerve center within the body and represents a vital aspect of consciousness within our own lives.
Additionally each chakra carries its own vibrational frequency that’s translated into a specific colour and has its own particular function. As seven spinning wheels, the chakras form a mythical rainbow bridge in the core of our ancestors linking body and spirit, mind and matter, future and past.
The Chakra system
The journey through the seven Chakras takes us in the bottom of our spine, home to the first chakra, foundation of our entire system, the building block where all the other chakras rest. We will then journey up along the backbone until we hit the thousand-petaled lotus blooming on top of our crown. Collectively, the seven main Chakras form a vertical pillar in our bodies called subhuman.

This was just an introduction to the Chakra system
So here we’ve got them. The seven amazing spinning wheels of life energy located within our own bodies. Later on we’ll see more in details what each chakra represents. For example we’ll see that Chakras may be in any stage between opened to shut, excessive or deficient. And because chakras are bridges between the physical and energetically facets of our own lives, if one or several of our chakras are blocked, we might experience physical and emotional manifestations because of this energetic blockage.
These indications can take any kind from bodily illness to psychological struggles. If a chakra is blocked at a closed condition, then it is unable to generate or receive energy on that specific plane. To the contrary, when a chakra is blocked at a country of excessive openness then it will tend to channel all of the energies throughout that particular location.
To put it differently, a closed chakra is chronic avoidance of particular energies, while an excess open air will be chronic fixation. In those scenarios, the chakras require healing by discovering and eliminating whatever is blocking them.
