What is a Chakra?
We have life force energy, or “chi” (also known as prana, qi, ki) that runs through
us and everything in our world.
The word Chakra is Sanskrit and means
“wheel” or “turning”. It is thought by the Buddhists and in the Hindi tradition (in Yoga) that the
human body has upwards of 72,000 (or more) nadis or lines of energy that flow through us and exit at certain points through-out
our body. It is believed that the flow of this energy keeps balance within us, and that each meridian is responsible for a
specific function of the body. In this belief, there are seven major energy centers that govern the well-being our major glands,
and are responsible for our well-being.If one of these Chakras are out of
balance, either by too much, or too little, it will manifest in our physical world.
