If you ever felt slightly out of balance for no reason, it might have something to do with the 7 energy centers located in your body—your chakras.
What are chakras?
The term “chakra” comes from Sanskrit and refers to the form of these whirling energy centers that unite mind, body, and spirit and translates to “wheel” or “disk.”
Everyone has seven main energy centers in the body, also known as chakras, starting at the top of the head and moving straight down to the bottom of the spine.
If you’re new to the philosophy of Chakras, it may be difficult to understand what each of them represents, which is why we created a complete guide to chakras you can find here.
Why are chakras important?
Chakras serve as processors and distributors of energy needed to keep our body in harmony. Their alignment is responsible for health, wellbeing, and vitality throughout our lives. According to yoga practice, energy flows effortlessly across your body when your chakras are open.
When your chakras are blocked, internal energy builds up, throwing the relationship between mind, body, and soul into disharmony.
Each of the seven chakras has its place in your body and its imbalance can cause some of the most common problems many women experience daily.
How to balance your chakras?
Chakra meditations are the easiest way to restore the balance of your chakras. Meditation provides you with the space to connect with your inner self and work on different areas of your body, mind, and soul and harness the energy stored in them.
Chakra meditations can be used to encourage peace and relaxation, as well as to promote spiritual awakening.
