The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit language and it means "wheel," or vortex. It refers to the seven major energy centers of the body. Each centre indicates a different aspect of your life, wellbeing and your consciousness. When these energy centers are balanced, you feel vital and healthy. When they are blocked, you feel stressed and off-balance. Through healing and meditation your chakras can clear and bring your life into harmony.
