How to Heal Your Chakras
How to Heal Your Chakras: Our body is constantly flowing with energy. It travels from the tops of our heads to the tips of our toes. That energy has a name. A chakra is a center of energy. Derived from the Sanskrit word for “wheel,” our body contains seven of these powerful energy sources. The seven chakras are: the root chakra, the sacral chakra, the solar plexus chakra, the heart chakra, the throat chakra, the third eye chakra and, lastly, the crown chakra.
