In this article, seven chakras will describe the meanings of life and meditation. Understanding the nature of the Chakras is fundamental to learning background, as we meditate and to make the best of the energy that resides within us. Chakra is a word that comes from Sanskrit, an ancient language spoken by the Indian populations of Asia and also used to write the oldest texts of their literature, the Vedas. The Chakras would then be united to the different aspects of man (mental, emotional, ethereal …) through a series of channels called Nadis, of the energy highways.
But within this set, there are the 7 basic or main chakras that have distributed from the lower part of the vertebral column, where the kundalinî (tangled snake-shaped energy, which must be awakened), is found up to the highest part of the head. If the energy has fully developed, what we call halo would appear. The energy would flow through these channels with ascending and descending movements, forming a kind of spiral, turning like a wheel. Of these seven chakras, the lower and upper chambers are simple, while the remaining five are composed of an anterior part and its corresponding posterior part.
Below I will describe each of the chakras with some of their most-used meanings and characteristics, as well as some diseases and psychological ailments that could be caused by the bad balance of each chakra:
