The philosophy of chakra originated in India over four thousand years ago. It is believed to be energy centers located at the line of symmetry in the human body. Chakra moves similar to hurricanes. They spin in a circular motion and supply energy to the body. There are believed to be seven main chakras. The first one is located at the base of the spine and the seventh one is located near the top of the skull. The rest are located in-between at the center of the body. Each chakra has its own color and vibrates at different frequency.
Practitioners believed that when the chakras are not vibrating or spinning properly our spiritual energy suffers. If our chakras are out of balance for certain amount of time, physical symptoms may show up as an early warning. They also believed that the experiences we go through in life are encoded in the chakras similar to how memories are encoded in the brain. There are many things that can affect our chakras, one of the major ones is emotion. When you are angry and stressed out, your chakras become imbalance just like your emotions. Learning how to avoid these emotions will help keep your chakras balance.
