Chakras

 

Chakra, in Sanskrit means revolving wheel or vortex of energy. Though there are many, most people focus on the main seven.  Each chakra is connected with a endocrine glandular system in the body. These energy points help balance and regulate the glands, your overall health; mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional. Each chakra has a related color and a musical note. Color energy, sound and gemstones can help to restore balance to the energy wheels.
