|Chakra Healing and Balancing
What are Chakras?
The word "chakra" translates to wheel or disk. Chakras are like energetic funnels that emit and receive energy from around us. For example, have you ever met someone fir the first time and received a creepy feeling? Or maybe you knew instantly that you liked that person?
Well, you are feeling the energy of that person. Their energetic body is emitting the energy and you are receiving it.
According to Ancient Hindus, chakras are at each of the centers of spiritual power in the human body. Chakras help to keep our psychological, physical and spiritual life in balance.
The seven main chakras begin at the top of the head (Crown Chakra) run down the mid-line of the body to the base of the spine.(Root Chakra) When one chakra is out of balance, the remaining become unbalanced because one is working harder for the other.
