Chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for wheel, or energy center, and is commonly translated as a point of physical or spiritual energy in the human body. Each Chakra is a vortex of spinning energy, or “prana” that regulates all of the physical body processes, from organ function and immune systems to emotions. Although most people think of 7 Chakras, there are actually 114 in total. The 7 Chakras most talked about each have their own vibration and frequency that is depicted through a specific color, location, and have several unique associated attributes. There are many ways to keep your Chakras clear and healthy, including Reiki, Crystal Therapy, Essential Oil Therapy, Affirmations, and even Yoga practice as a Mind, Body, & Spirit healing modality.

Everything in the world is in constant motion which is why its so important to try to stay aligned with our highest good, mind, body, & spirit. Throughout the daily grind, we seem to sometimes forget the important things....US! Try to take care of yourself like it's your job, because it is your job. If you have blockages in any areas of your body because of daily stresses in life, the energy cannot flow. Since the mind, body, and spirit are so deeply connected, awareness is half the battle in bringing yourself back to balance. If you still need additional help in cleaning and clearing your physical body's energy flow, make yourself a priority, vibrate on the highest frequency of self love, and allow yourself the gift of life healing energy.
