The word chakra [chuhk-ruh] translates as “wheel” or “disk” and refers to a spinning sphere of bioenergetics activity, vital energy, or life force. There are many of these life forces located on different parts of our bodies, major and minor chakras. For my purposes, I will be focusing only on the seven major chakra system stacked along the spine, starting at the base (Chakra One) and ending at the crown of the head (Chakra Seven). These main chakras send energy up and down our body and like any transfer system, it can get blocked (deficient) or spring a leak (excess). There are ways of clearing and healing these elements so that the life force can continue to flow, giving us the energy we need to live each day to the fullest and manifest our true selves.
