Seven Major Chakras

There hundreds of chakras through our body. However, there are seven major chakras and the following pictures give you some brief information for each. If you have any queries please contact me.

Root Chakra

The root chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our beings. When poorly grounded, your spatial understanding is impaired. You may stumble around physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotio…nally. Grounding enhances your ability to function effectively on a day-to-day basis. When the root chakra is blocked an individual may feel fearful, anxious, insecure and frustrated. Problems like obesity, anorexia nervosa, and knee troubles can occur. Root body parts include the hips, legs, lower back and sexual organs.
