Chakra is a Sanskrit word translated as “wheels” of rotating Energy. Each chakra vibrates at a different frequency and is associated with particular 7 colors. Eastern healers define Chakras as intersections of vital energy flows in the body,and western healers define each energy center as a vortex of swirling energy. Each energy center controls certain emotional levels in each one of us and is related to specific organs in the body.
There are seven major Chakras in the body where major Energy flows intersect. The health of an area of the body and the energetics of its associated Chakras are considered interdependent. Therefore, when a Chakra is energized and the energy is not blocked, but is flowing freely, the associated physical body is healthy as well.
