A little information about Chakras - the energy centers of the body

Chakras pertain to the connection between the mind, the body and the spirit. They are the energy centers of the body. There are seven major Chakras attached to the body. 

Chakras populate your body through your spine, mid-section, and head. They are to be numbered from bottom (Chakras 5-7 - lower spine), to the mid-section (Chakra 4) and upward to the head (Chakras 1-3).

Balancing the energy of the Chakras that move through your being may to be important to your physical and spiritual well being. You can do many things to help balance your Chakras including yoga, reiki and meditation. 

Interpreting and understanding your Chakras may be very helpful. Interestingly, the proper alignment of Chakras helps most readers enhance their ability to transmit and receive messages during a psychic reading. 

Each Chakra has the ability to resonate to a set sound or color vibration. (Auras may reveal how your Chakras are functioning).
