Our Emotional Energy Centers

 

Within your body, there are seven basic energy centers or chakras. Chakra is an Indian (Sanskrit) word literally meaning “wheel.” These wheels have a circular or spiral shape, represent a spectrum of colors, and are located along your spine. Each energy center or chakra has a number of specific qualities and vibrational speeds, from lowest to highest. They vibrate at different levels depending on the individual and their ability to integrate the emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of their life. To help balance a chakra, you have to be at the same vibration and frequency as the chakra.
