What are the Chakras?
The chakras are the seven main energy centers in the body that regulate and process the flow of life force energy in and around each of us. Each chakra is responsible for supplying energy to specific parts of the body, mind and emotions.
Life force energy is the non-physical, all pervasive energy that gives life to all living things. Life force energy is also known as Chi, Ki, Prana, Mana, or Holy Spirit. How freely and strongly life force energy is flowing through us impacts our well-being and all aspects of our lives. So when you have a chakra that is blocked up, and isn’t flowing energy well, or is leaking energy, it can leave you feeling tired, cranky and stuck, or worse, physically or mentally ill.
Chakras impact every aspect of our lives:
