Chakras are the energy centers in your body, related to various aspects of your life. From your sense of security (first Muladhara chakra) to your connection with universal consciousness (seventh Sahasrara chakra). By connecting with the seven base chakras you receive information about what is going on energetically and your energy becomes (more) balanced.
The chakra system is a world wide known concept, a filosofical model from India. De model assumes that there are seven stages of consciousness. The seven main chakras symbolize these stages. Chakras are centers of activity, of life force. This life energy is needed to feed the chakra’s. Physically the chakras absorb universal energy and pass this on to the meridians, the nervous system, and blood. Every chakra is directly connected to an endocrine gland. These glands influence the whole organism. Chakras play an important role in the way people express their energy and life force.
The chakras radiate from the front as well as from the back of your body. Every chakra corresponds with a certain spiritual function, a period in life, a sense organ, color, sound and symbolic shape. The chakras are the receivers of all energy vibrations that go far beyond the physical range. They connect you to the unlimited world of subtle energies.
