What is the Meaning of the 7 Chakras?
Have you been wondering? What is the meaning of the 7 Chakras?
Let's explore what they mean and how this newfound knowledge can benefit your health and life.
Chakras are circular vortexes of energy across 7 different points on the spinal column. The 7 chakras are connected to different glands and organs are believed to be responsible for uniform distribution of “Chi” (life energy) through them. When this life energy is corrupted or there is a blockage in any one or more Chakras, the individual may suffer from health or mental issues. Thus, the Chakras form the energy ecosystem of every individual. A deficiency in this ecosystem can wreak havoc in the different areas of life. (info cited from https://www.color-meanings.com)
