Chakras are the body’s powerhouse, comprised of seven centers or major chakras.
They are: the root chakra, which extends between the thighs and half way between the knees, the crown chakra located at the top of the head and remaining chakras respectively: sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat and third eye.
Often the aura surrounding the body is referred to as the eighth chakra.
Chakras are invisible to the human eye but can be detected by trained energy practitioners.
Having your chakras evaluated can help you understand how your body works on an energetic level. It can also uncover any possible energy issues with your body. Having imbalanced chakras can stress other chakras – in other words they will be working overtime and therefore will not be functioning properly.
This can affect your overall sense of well being and energy level.
It is always best to seek out an experienced energy healer, but there are a few exercises you can start with at home to restore balance to your chakras.
Always wear loose comfortable clothing, relax in a quiet, well ventilated space before practicing your chakra balancing exercises.
