The Best 20 Chakra Healing Books For Beginners

Chakras are energetic points, or “wheels” in Sanskrit, which run from the base of the spine up through the crown of the head. These energetic points are located in the subtle body and allow for the life force or energy to run through the main energy channel through the spine.

When energy becomes stagnant in one or more of these energetic points, we are prone to experience emotional congestion fueled by fear, lack of self-love, and limiting beliefs – hence opening ourselves to physical, emotional, and spiritual pain.

When our chakras are vibrant and open, we are abundantly rich in the vital life force (prana). Also, we feel inspired, energized, grounded, grateful, intuitive, loving, kind, and connected to the source.
