Chakras are energy centers located at various points in your body that allow you to live your life to its full expression and potential. The following information on chakras for beginners will help you get familiar with how important these energy centers are. The chakras are directly related to your body’s overall health, your emotional well-being and your mental abilities, and learning to keep them balanced is essential to your overall quality of life.
You can imagine each chakra as a rapidly spinning ‘wheel’ of energy. There are 7 chakras in the body, roughly along the spine from the base of the spine to the top of the head.
Stress, depression, and bodily injury or pain can cause one or more of your chakras to become clogged and out of balance, which will adversely affect the flow of energy. If energy cannot flow openly and freely through all of your chakras you will experience problems associated with that chakra.
