Chakras, (Chakra means wheel or disk in Sanskrit). In Hinduism, there are seven Chakras in a column of energy that spans from the base of the spine to the top of the head of the human body. They are linked to sound, light and color.
The concept of chakras is part of a complex of ideas related to esoteric anatomy. The philosophical theories and models of chakras are also identified through the existential mystical practice of Yoga (ancient spiritual practices originating in India). They are thought to vitalise the body and to be associated with interactions of physical and mental nature.
To heal, is to bring the chakras into alignment and balance
