Chakras: a guide to balance

The chakras are energy centres present in our body that play important roles in our lives, whether we are aware of it or not. Maintaining the alignment of our chakras is fundamental to living a healthy, balanced and abundant life.

What are the chakras?

  Chakras, which in ancient Sanskrit mean “wheels”, are energy points that correspond to specific organs and nerves. When these chakras are blocked or misaligned, difficulties can arise in manifesting positive energy, balance and peace in our lives. But when our chakras are open and balanced, they allow the life force to flow freely, which generates physical, emotional and spiritual balance, leading us to feel at peace and harmony.
