In this article you will learn some basic ways that you can use your metaphysical spiritual supplies, ritual supplies and metaphysical crystals that relate to the healthy functioning of your Chakra Energy Centers.
Most everyone has heard the term “Chakra”, but what, exactly are the Chakras? The word “chakra” originated in India and also parts of Asia. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning spinning wheel. Chakras are spinning wheels of energy within the human body.
The different chakras are responsible for various human functions which we will discuss briefly later in this article. Basically, what chakras do is to channel the life force energies into different areas of human functioning. Chakras can become unbalanced or blocked causing our necessary life force energies to have a much harder time working. Unbalanced or blocked chakras can lead to disease and illness.
Life problems, traumas, negative experience and emotions can also affect our chakras and begin causing unbalance and blockages, or even cause the chakras to close.
Now we will take a brief look at the seven main chakras that we need to become familiar with and learn to take care of.
