The 7 Chakras You Should Practice To Ignite Connectivity

The ancient origins of the Chakra concept can be found in Hinduism and Buddhism, having been adopted over time by various spiritual traditions such as yoga. It’s believed that within each human body are seven intersecting pathways for a life force energy, also known as Prana to flow along. Energizing centers referred to as Chakras which translate from Sanskrit meaning “spinning wheel.”

Our experience of life is determined by our emotional constitution and instinctual drives, which manifest in the energetic wheels known as Chakras. These Chakra centers govern specific traits that can range from security to compassion – all bound together through Nature’s Five Elements.

Each center has its own unique hue along the rainbow spectrum, helping us balance and optimize how we live within ourselves and with others.

Your body is a temple and its energy needs to flow freely for optimal health. When one of your seven chakras becomes blocked, it can lead to emotional turmoil or physical discomforts like anxiety, digestive issues and lethargy.

The ancient practice of yoga unblocks these vital points by using poses that promote healing in the mind-body connection. Breathing exercises cleanse negative energies while hand gestures assist with releasing tension from muscles.

Meditation provides peace on an energetic level as well so you feel more balanced overall!
