What is a chakra?
The word ‘chakra’ in literal terms means ‘wheel of spinning energy’. A chakra is an energy center in the body that spins and rotates, fueling the body and giving it life force. There are seven major energy centers in the body, starting from the base of the spine all the way to the top of the head, that provide a balanced amount of energy to the spirit, mind, and body.
