The entire universe is made up of energy and our bodies are no exception. Our body’s network is made up of various psychic centres or chakras that are responsible for all the functions of our body, its balance and imbalance. These chakras or energy centres allow cosmic energy to flow in our body and are also present in more than one dimension. One is their physical state, the other is their spiritual dimension. The way we feel, behave and act are in complete alignment with the state of our chakras. As energy centres, they provide energy to specific areas and functions of the body, also enabling the awakening of our higher consciousness. We cannot see these chakras through our naked eye but surely through meditation, we can feel their energy.
Human body has 114 chakras, but only seven of these are considered as the fundamental chakras. These chakras start at the base of our spine and go all way to the top of our head. For a balanced person, these seven chakras provide the right amount of energy to the body, mind and soul. However, an emotional trauma, stress, loss or an accident can cause blockage to the chakras which creates an imbalance in the body and mind.
