Chakra Guide

What are chakras?

Chakras are spinning wheels of energy called vortexes. These vortexes are open when they are clear from blockages and closed when the energy to them is stuck or blocked somehow.
Think of a chakra as in the shape of a lovely lotus flower. While the lotus is under water in the mud it is like your chakra when it is blocked- it is closed up. Once the lotus reaches the surface of the water and emerges into the light, we see a beautiful flower open to the light of day- just like your chakra when it is open and unblocked and full of light.
When our chakras or open and full of light, we are in balance. energy flows effortlessly through our bodies and we experience a state of health and well being.
