Guide to the 7 chakras

In addition to our physical body, we have a “subtle” body consisting of energy channels. When this energy flows freely, we feel physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally healthy. On the other hand, when these energy channels are blocked or slowed down, we are sick.

There are many therapies such as acupuncture and lithotherapy that harmonize this flow of energy and thus intensify the free flow of energy through the subtle body. Visit https://www.france-minerals.co.uk for more about lithotherapy.

Also, we can use natural stones to harmonize and work on our chakras.

What is a chakra?

The word “chakra” means “the wheel” in Sanskrit. It is located where two energy channels intersect in the body. They are energy centres that provide a place for the exchange of energy with the outside world.

For people with the ability to perceive energy, these chakras appear as balls or wheels.

There are 7 major chakras, ranging from the base of the spine to the top of the skull. Each chakra corresponds to a part of the body. There are also several minor chakras, but it is sufficient to focus and work on the 7 major chakras.

The chakras are well balanced and naturally aligned. When everything is going well, the chakras are supple and vibrant.

Sometimes, the chakras become unbalanced and come out of their alignments. It is at this time that you will have to work on your chakras in order to rebalance and harmonize them.

Locate the chakras

In order to locate your chakras, you can use a diagram. You can also locate them in a more natural way.

Place one or two hands where each chakra is located and concentrate. Try to perceive a feeling, a feeling (hot, cold) or even tingling. When you perceive a place that seems different to you, you will have localized your chakra.

You can do it in front or at the back of the body.
