The 7 Major Chakra’s
The word Chakra comes from the Sanskrit for wheel, disc or circle. A Chakra is like a vortex, a constant revolving wheel of energy. Chakras act as bridges, linking the physical body with the subtle bodies (Aura). If the energy is in some way impeded or blocked and unable to flow freely, the result is often seen as physical, emotional or mental disease or spiritual unease. When our energy centres are unblocked and flowing freely however, we experience better physical health and the ability to channel spirit and spiritual messages a lot more clearly.
