The entire universe is made of energy, and your body is no exception. Long before modern technology and science came along, ancient cultures studied the energy that lives inside each living being. There are seven energies that move inside of us, called the seven chakras.
The seven energy centers start from the top of your head and end at the base of your spine. In a healthy, balanced person, the seven chakras provide exactly the right amount of energy to every part of your body, mind and spirit. However these energies can become unbalanced, for example by letting negative energy into your life. When we learn about the different chakras and becoming more in-tune with our bodies, we can learn how to keep ourselves balanced and get over any imbalances. Each chakra plays a special roll in your life.
Here are the seven chakras: what they are and how you can keep them healthy.
