“Chakra” means “wheel”. There are seven primary Chakras, “spinning” energy-wheels, that act as pathways between the physical and the subtle realms. The Chakras are located from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, within our subtle body. The purification and balancing of the Chakras is considered a necessity for spiritual transformation. The Chakras are also referred to in ancient Ayurvedic texts that recognise their importance on the journey towards physical health. More recently, there are suggestions of their correlation with the Endocrine system, the Vagus nerve and electro-magnetic “fields”. Emotional, mental, physical, energetic and environmental stressors all affect the balance of our Chakras. The unblocking, balancing and aligning of our Chakras are vital for our emotional and physical transformation and wellbeing.
