What are chakras?
Chakras refer to various energy centers in your body that correspond to specific nerve bundles and internal organs. The seven major chakras run from the base of your spine to the top of your head. At Lotus Reiki, we'll reference chakras often during energy healing sessions.
The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body. You’ve probably heard people talk about “blocked” chakras. This refers to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely, creating harmony between the physical body, mind, and spirit. When chakras are blocked, certain areas of our physical and emotional body feel disconnected.
