Major and Minor Chakras
As with electricity running through a wire, the vital energy creates a two-way circuit throughout the body. Vital energy enters from the feet travelling to the top of the head while also entering through the crown at the top of the head flowing down to the earth. This energy concentrates at different locations in the body called chakras (corresponding with nerve plexuses).
There are seven major chakras along the centerline of the body, with multiple minor chakras throughout the body and along the extremities. The state of each chakra reflects the health of a particular area of your body. It also reflects your psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being. When chakra energy is blocked or misdirected, emotional and physical illness can arise.
