What Are Chakras & Why Are They Important

 what are chakras and why are they important

Chakras are the energy centers that run within the aura and physical body.  In sanskrit the word chakra means "disk" or 'wheel".  Chakras are a way to allow cosmic energy to flow from the higher aspects of you to your physical body.  

It has been said that we literally have hundreds of chakras that run within and around our physical bodies. 

Most people know and talk about the main chakras because they are specifically aligned within and up the spine and beyond of the physical body.  They are linked to specific areas of the physical body and correspond to particular nerve centers. 

These main chakras are very important for the health and vitality of the physical body.

 What Are Chakras and Why Are They Important

 

What does a Chakra do?

These energy centers are spinning discs of light that govern our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.  

When these chakras are balanced, the energy flows smoothly through them and you feel a a sense of balance in health and well being!

When these energy centers can become blocked, one may experience physical, emotional and even mental dis-ease within the body. This can lead to fear, doubt, health issues and many challenges in your life.

Our chakras represents specific aspects that will help you live in alignment with our soul and our physical body.  When they are balanced we live a more healthy, balanced and expanded out look on our physical reality.  

Every chakra is associated with a particular color and location on the physical body, physical body systems and organs, expressions + spiritual attributes.
