One of the basic tenets of new age is that each human body has seven chakras - energy locations which can be blocked, healed, and even seen by some. Chakras are a core belief of yoga, and have been incorporated into many different new age practices. The chakra system was first developed in India in the middle ages. The word "chakra" is a sanskrit word meaning wheel.
The major chakras are located along the spinal column of the body - starting at your perineum and going up to the top of your head at your crown. Each chakra is traditionally represented by a different color of the rainbow - starting with red at the bottom up to violet on the crown.Each chakra location represents different emotions and feelings.
Ideally all the chakras should be balanced- open and spinning at a similar rate to each other. Most of us however have some chakras which are overactive
and others that are closed down or underactive.
