In the world of our existence, it is not possible to see everything with our own eyes. Beyond the boundaries of the visible, apparent world, there are invisible, psychoenergetic centers, known as CHAKRAS.
The meaning of chakras – what are chakras and what’s their role?
What are chakras? The word “chakra” in the ancient Indian, the Sanskrit language means wheel or vortex. Chakras are the centers of energy and consciousness in the human body. Chakras are responsible for the physical, mental and emotional processes in the human body.
In Eastern medicine and philosophy, which long ago, before the West, discovered that EVERYTHING is ENERGY, chakras, or energy centers, have been established and recognized for thousands of years. Chakras are not material, anatomically provable centers, but vortices of energy, human auras.
Chakras are the key points that receive energy, in order for the physical body to live. It is through these centers, the healing energies, that they are directed towards the diseased areas of the body, in order to achieve a state of balance, or health, or to understand the meaning of the chakras.

- To revive the physical body
- To lead to the development of self-awareness
- To transfer spiritual energy, in order to bring a person into the state of a spiritual being.
