There are seven major and four minor Chakras
listed here. Chakra literally means "Wheel of light”. They are spinning
energy vortexes and part of our energy body. Located just above the skin or on
the skin spinning. When in balance the spinning is at a steady rate, when not
in balance they can spin too fast or sluggishly. Chakras are believed to govern
the area of the body they are associated with, ex. The Base Chakra (generally
called The Root Chakra) governs the hip area.
When the Chakras are open, spinning and balanced we unite our body, mind and spirit. Each Chakra has a specific function that relates to our energy self. Energy records are stored in the chakras, when you have a negative, neutral, or positive experience, the chakra records it. The more unbalanced you become in any situation the corresponding chakra will become unbalanced and blocked. It is possible you do not even know it is off balance. When unbalanced issues come up again and if they are still not in balance most likely the same things will happen. Learning about the chakras will help you learn how to deal with your energy self and keep you and your chakras in balance. Chakras give you clues on issues that need work. When you recognize a problem with one chakra, you work in conjunction with the others to achieve balance and harmony. There are exercises to help you clean and balance your Chakras if you believe you are blocked.
