There are 7 major chakras, which are energy centers within and around the body. Many non-physical points where the chakras lie are in fact, connected with physical parts of our body. Therefore the physical body is negatively affected when chakras are closed, enlarged or out of balance. Each chakra is also connected with different emotional and developmental issues. The chakras are constantly affected by the energies we are around and by the energies projected by our thoughts and feelings. When chakras are open and balanced, you will feel more balanced and peaceful.
