We have 7 chakras and they are small energy wheels. They have colors like the rainbow and various functions to regulate our mind. If chakras are balanced, we feel good, if they are overactive or underactive, we do not feel good and it turns out in various feelings and behaviors. Our thoughts and feelings are energies and, depending on how our chakras work, we can notice their blockage in various physical functional problems and in our mental attitude. Which leads to our behavior.
The 7 chakras are located from the base of your body to the top of your head. They are not physical entities, they are energies. But they cover both the front and the back of the body and are attached to various organs in the body. Each chakra gets energy from the chakras below, so root chakra is important, we can balance our chakras with meditation, affirmations, visualization.
