The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit “चक्र” meaning wheel or disc. There are seven major chakras and many minor chakras in our body. .Apart from the physical body, each human being has a spiritual body. This spiritual body is composed of vibrations of light (energy) and it envelops the physical body. These chakras are found embedded in our energy field. They resonate at different frequencies corresponding to the colours of the rainbow. These chakras are spinning vortices of energy and they cannot be physically detected.
The location of chakras in the energy body corresponds directly to the placement of endocrine glands in the physical body. Chakras, have a direct effect on the state of our physical and emotional health and can impact every aspect of our life, our direction and decisions. The energy body absorbs finer levels of energy from the environment and transmits this through the chakras into the physical body via the endocrine glands. The endocrine system controls the hormone balance in the body,which has a powerful effect on a person’s moods and emotions.
