Chakra is Wheel or Circle. They are energy centers or points located along the central meridian of our body. They function like receivers and transformers.
A human body has 7 chakra centers and many minor chakra points too.. The 7 major chakras are called the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and the Crown. Some systems have a couple of extra points. Each of these centers have a distinct character and relates to a certain aspect of our being. Each chakra has a different frequency of vibration, color and sound. Using these vibrations, color and sound helps us to align and balance these chakras
Many systems use the Chakras for healing. Energy flows through these chakras. A blockage in any of these chakras leads to illness.
Chakras are the major center for spiritual power and growth. This belief started in India.
