Not so easily defined really, but in a nutshell, chakras are spinning wheels or energy centers located in and around the physical body, that are simultaneously receiving and sending information to and from you every second of every day.
These wheels or energy centers are spinning vortices and are your main hubs for receiving or gathering energy for the body, mind, soul, spirit. Your chakras tell you when energy is free-flowing and when there are blockages needing release.
There are seven main chakras in the body, but many more in and around the body. The seven main or most common are -from bottom to top: Root, Sacral or Splenic, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown. They are the most commonly known, and correspond to certain organs and systems of the physical body.
