Everything in this vast universe is transmitting energy, from the greatest mountain or sea, to the smallest piece of grass, to every individual cell in our body. In fact, if you’ve heard of the Big Bang, you must know that the universe itself was created as a result of excessive energy. Knowing this, it shouldn’t startle you to realize that depending upon your body's energy, there are a few distinct channels situated at key areas of the body through which energy can stream in and out steadily. These are known as the chakras (wheels). These pools of energy in our bodies administer our mental characteristics.
There are said to be seven primary chakras; four in our upper body, which oversee our psychological properties, and three in the lower body, which administer our instinctual properties. Blocked energy in our seven chakras can facilitate diseases. It's, therefore, vital to comprehend what each chakra speaks of and what we can do to keep this energy streaming uninhibitedly.
Here’s a list of the chakras, their position, and their contribution to our wellness.
