Our chakras (Sanskrit for wheels) are the energetic centers of our physical and non-physical bodies. They are the gateways through which life force energy enters, exits, and circulates through us. Because of this we understand that keeping our chakra systems open, clear and functioning properly is key to promoting optimal health and vitality as well as healing imbalances within the physical and energetic bodies.
There are seven major chakras associated with the physical body (more have been identified but for practical purposes will not be expanded upon here). Each chakra has a color as well as a physical and psychological function associated with it. When we understand these correlations we can more easily identify and heal issues that arise in our lives.
The major chakras in the human body are listed below first by the English name followed by the Sanskrit name and a brief description of each.*
