Chakra is our life force. Chakras are energy centers of the human body that play an important role in health and well being. According to Indian tradition, chakras are a series of invisible vortices or whorls of energy that transfer energy and information throughout the human body. They affect things like health, mood, and creativity.
Each chakra has associated colors, feelings, and crystals that help to balance the chakras and your energy body.
