There are many chakras in the human body but 7 of those are considered to be the most important ones.
The chakras are not material reality, they are a form of energy moving in a circular energy pattern. The physical body is a manifestation of energy. The Chakra and the spine that connects them in the energy body is not physically visible it is a vibration of energy, vibrating energy creates magnetism and it is the magnetic force of the spine and the chakras that hold the physical body here. From the base of the spine to the top of the head, all chakras have to work together in balance for us to live our highest purpose.
Food for thought:
A good way of opening chakras is by wearing the color of which the chakra represents or by eating naturally colored foods of the chakras. For example, A tomato would be good for your root chakra or you could wear all blue if you want to be a better communicator.
Chakras are the doorway between your mental, emotional and physical bodies. Understanding your chakras and the chakra system is very important for your overall being because you really see where you might be dealing with extra strengths or extra weakness’. Not all of your chakras are going to be opened at once but by being able to know how to open each chakra, will always be beneficial weather it is tapping into your creativity, to emphasizing with someone you would not normally or even trying to reach a deeper stage of meditation. You will also benefit from being happier, healthier and more in tune. When one of your chakras is out of sync, this may effect the organs and glands connected to it and causing neighboring chakras to be out of sync. Causing your body to be imbalanced .
Ultimately these wheels of energy help redirect energy to where it is needed, helping different organs work the way they should. If you take pure light and shine it through a prism it will break into 7 colors, Red , yellow, Orange, green, Blue, Indigo and Violet each color is the color of are chakras this alone is proof that we are all beings of light.
