The 7 Chakras

Chakras are energy centers within our body that we cannot see with our physical eyes. They present themselves as swirling vortexes of energy that regulate the flow of energy throughout our bodies. Our Chakras may be either open or closed, depending on our mental and spiritual condition at any given time. There are 7 primary Chakras in our bodies. The 7 primary Chakras lie along the spine. They are located from the crown of the head to the base of the spine. Each of them has an associated frequency vibration and color that helps us to identify them.
