7 Chakra Points in your body that you should know about

Chakras are energy spots. Through chakra, the energies flow. There are seven chakra points in a human body in total, and each chakra has its own distinct quality. In Sanskrit, ‘chakra’ means ‘wheel’, and the exact definition of chakra is “wheel of spinning energy”, a whirling vortex like the powerhouse of energy.

Chakra is vital because even a block at one point can cause illness. One must understand and analyze the function of each Chakra and the necessary steps that can be taken to keep the energy flowing. Each point of the seven chakras is governed by “spiritual laws” and “principles of consciousness” which can be used for building a positive life.
