The chakras are energy centres located on and around the human body. There are seven main chakras and also other minor ones too. Each chakra has certain colours and properties associated with them. By giving focus to our chakras through healing, visualisation, meditation, wearing appropriate crystals or colours we can effectively change how we feel and also work to break through patterns that limit us.
