The word Chakra comes from the Sanskrit language which means wheel, disk, rotation, or lotus flower.

There's so much information that can be found around the internet about their interpretation and explanations, from a scientific to spiritual/ religious point of view, which depends on various sources.

Chakras are thought to be energy vortices, or points, located in our body.

The easiest way to describe the chakras is as an indirect organ that receives energy from outside (space, nature, people, or things), absorbs it, and directs it further into the body.

Try to visualize the chakra as a vortex that metabolizes the energy, where each color of the chakras symbolizes the speed frequency that the energy metabolizes at a certain speed.

When these energy centers are blocked, they affect the normal functioning of the organs in our body. They also affect our hormones, thoughts, and feelings.

There's a lot of ways to keep these energy centers in balance, but in this article, we'll cover how to balance your chakras with the help of healing stones.
