So what is a chakra?

A chakra is an energy center or vortex on your spiritual body, each one connected to your physical body. First mentioned in ancient Hindu texts of knowledge known as the Vedas.


The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit language and means "wheel of light".

Each is a spiraling vortex of energy... also known as nadis, that is connected energetically to your spine and has relationships with specific emotional, spiritual and physical body systems.

I will deal primarily with the 7 main chakras located at the base of your spine and going up to the top of your head, though I will touch on some others later on.
