Everything in existence possesses subtle or metaphysical energy. One example of this energy is your life force. Some call this life force Prana, others call it Qi. Regardless of the word used to describe it, its purpose is the same: to animate your physical body.
In many esoteric belief systems, this metaphysical energy or life force is believed to flow through a living being in concentrated channels. In Vedic terms, these are called nadis; in Taoist terms, they are called meridians. Just like opposing currents of water, where the flow of this energy intersects, it creates a vortex: or Chakra.
You have thousands of tiny Chakras throughout and around your physical body. However, the vortexes which have the most obvious impact on you are the 7 major Chakras that run along your spine.
The Seven Major Chakras
Chakras affect the condition of the body, mind, and spirit. An imbalance in the Chakras will manifest in an imbalance somewhere in your life and/or body; the importance of proper Chakra function is paramount to living a happy, healthy life.
Sahasrara – Crown Chakra
Your Crown Chakra is associated with soul and your connection to God. When this Chakra is functioning properly, you will feel calm, peaceful, and one with the universe. When it is blocked or imbalanced, it can result in depression, hopelessness, and overall poor health.
Ajna – Third-Eye Chakra
Your Third-Eye Chakra is associated with both the conscious and subconscious mind. It is also associated with psychic ability and manifestation.
