|The 7 main chakras|
Chakras are energy centers all over your body, which are meant to exchange the energy with Nature around you and yourself.
Actually you have thousands of chakras throughout and beyond your body.
You can imagine chakras as spinning whirls channelling energy. The collected energy from your environment travels by your spine, from the bottom towards the top, through energy channels, called meridians.
If chakras are working well, we can say that they're open: they're spinning clock-wise and collecting-exchanging energy from the environment around you.
Unfortunatelly, if your environment is bad and you're going through stress, you have bad-habits such as smoking, drinking, eating disorders or you're emotionally down too much, chackras can close and malfunction.
