Everything has energy and so does our body. Chakras, also known as “wheels of life”, are the energy centers in our subtle body, they are the vital force of our well-being. When the energy passes through these centers freely we experience harmony within ourselves, everything seem to work out in our lives, we have good health emotionally and physically.
Daily life can bring to us stress, influence our thinking which might be not aligned with what we truly stand for, physical illness and many more things which are known as normal these days.

When some of the chakras are blocked or not working properly either have excessive energy flow or very weak, we may experience emotional imbalances, impulsiveness, health problems, obsessiveness.
It’s important to always maintain balance in our chakras. Luckily we can have control over it and keep the energy flow freely and harmonious by using different methods, like yoga, meditation, relaxation, aromatherapy.
