If the chakras could speak…

What are the chakras?

The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel.  The chakras are wheel-like spinning energy centers in the subtle body.  The 7 main chakras are aligned along the spinal column. It is believed that blocked energy in the chakras  leads to imbalance and illness (physiological, psychological, emotional, and spiritual) so it’s important to keep this energy flowing freely by practicing yoga, meditation, and eating a healthy diet.  Each of the chakras are associated with different colors, shapes, body parts and glands, senses, states of mind and emotion, elements, mantras, and much more.

If the chakras could speak, here’s who they might be quoting…
