The Chakra System
Our body is equipped with one more energy system that needs to stay in balance if we want to be preserved from illness. This system is the first to show signs of imbalance. I am talking here about chakra system.
The word chakra comes from Sanskrit and means a wheel or a disk. To find a better explanation, I would use an image of a turbine or a turbine wheel.
There are seven chakras placed on a straight line from back bottom to crown of head along the spine. This channel, called sushumna is where kundalini energy flows. Every chakra draws in or lets out energy into the body.
Each chakra is specifically connected to different body functions and organs, for instance the endocrinological system. They are at the same time mutually related.
