Chakra is sanskrit for wheel or circle. It is a spinning energy vortex interacting with various physiological and neurological systems in the body. The entire universe is made of energy, and we are no different. There are seven main chakras, or energy centers which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through the crown of the head. When our energy centers are out of balance, our prana doesn’t flow well. Since mind, body, soul, and spirit are intimately connected, awareness of an imbalance in any area is important in keeping your energy flowing.
Sometimes it feels like all of our worst thoughts about ourselves are true. However, feeling negative about ourselves has nothing to do with who we actually are. This is evidenced by people who by all accounts are beautiful human beings, but who feel ugly and worthless.
I write about human behavior, meditation, body awareness, and a variety of other things that pique my interest.
