Chakra is Sanskrit for vortex or spinning wheel. They are so called named as they spin like a wheel of energy. There are seven main chakras in which we work by. Some work with twelve.
When the chakras are balanced, the energies are flowing freely and we have a state of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. When these centres are blocked or imbalanced, we experience illness and or emotional imbalances as well. Each chakra emits its own frequency and has its own colour.
