What is a Chakra?

by | Feb 24, 2017 | Chakras, Spiritual Health

A chakra is a circle or sphere of energy within our bodies (there are 7 major Chakras) and many more minor chakras that appears like a revolving ball of coloured light. You could call it our own powerhouse of energy, which is charged by Cosmic Energy. Think of it as a fluorescent tube of light flowing from your Crown Chakra to your Base Chakra. It is a source of energy.

Sometimes Chakras become blocked because of stress, emotional or physical problems. If the energy can’t flow freely this is when problems occur. It may also give you a sense of being mentally and emotionally out of balance. Daily Affirmation can assist in the balancing of our Chakras and Glands. Each Chakra has a Arch Angel and his twin flame connected to them.
