Definition: What is a Chakra?
The chakras can be defined as points of junction of energy centers of our body, such as (small whirlwinds of energy, invisible to the naked eye). It makes it possible to capture the energies in its environment, which arrive in the physical body via the chakras. Chakras originate from traditional Ayurvedic medicine, from the Hindus, in ancient India. They are evoked in particular today in the practice of yoga.
What are chakras for?
Each of the seven chakras corresponds to a specific area of the body.
They have an action on the functioning of organs, the endocrine system, emotions, etc.
The human body is the temple of the soul, indeed it prints what we do not express (feelings, fears, anger). Re-stifled or unspoken emotions can become blocked in different parts of the body and thus prevent the proper functioning of the chakras. This leads to more or less serious consequences on the body that can go as far as illness.

Relationship between chakra and disease.
The disease can be explained by the "evil said" indeed in a pathology, the body speaks to you, its pain wants to tell you or make you understand something. In our Western culture, we talk a lot about taking care of your diet, paying attention to excess, playing sports, eating 5 fruits and vegetables a day. However, in recent years there is also more and more talk of well-being to be healthy. By following this reasoning, we can conclude that by listening to our body, we can act on our pathologies and the chakras are allies of choice in this quest. Indeed, since each chakra corresponds to a part of the body, we will know which chakra to rebalance in order to solve the problem.
Take care of the chakras.
But how to do it? You tell me, because not everyone has the necessary training or knowledge. However, since each chakra corresponds to a color, a musical note, a mantra, a stone, a metal, one or more essential oils. Then, by identifying the unbalanced chakra in energy, you can begin to act on it simply.
It should also be noted that it is our reactions, our attitudes and our way of life that destabilize the chakras, they do not block themselves. Keep in mind that you will not be able to re-harmonize a chakra if you do not fix the cause of the blockage (stress, lifestyle, bad eating habits…).
