What are the 7 Chakras?
The 7 chakras are the energy centers of the body. The word chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit and symbolizes the flow of energy in our bodies. It is often said that unblocking your chakras opens the flow of energy through them creating harmony between the physical body, mind, and spirit.
