The chakras are the energy centres of the body. There are seven chakras and all of them play an important role in the well-being of body and mind. Each chakra influences certain bodily functions and emotions. Chakra is a word that comes from Sanskrit and literally means ‘wheel’. A chakra can therefore be imagined as a whirlpool that lets energy flow through your body, or in other words, a ‘rotating wheel of energy’. You can describe the seven chakras in many different ways. Each of the seven ‘whirlpools of energy’ has different properties that belong to a certain area of the body. In order to keep your life balanced and not depressed, anxious, sick, etc., you have to make sure that the chakras flow well so that the energy can flow through the body.
