Chakras are energy centers in our bodies through which Energy flows.
Each one of the major 7 Chakras correspond to massive nerve-rich regions and vital biological systems in the human body.
They're believed to act as links or bridges between the Universe and our physical body, where Vital Energy (also called Prana) flows freely between the two. If the Energy can't flow freely or flows with difficulty, we experience emotional imbalance, energetic discomfort, and even mental and/or physical illnesses.
The concept of Chakras is rooted in the Sanskrit literature where some of the central philosophical concepts of Hinduism are originated from.
The word Chakra can be translated as "wheel", "disk" or "cycle", and some authors interpret as "Circle of endless rotation" and "Wheel of spinning Energy".
