Nowadays we see that more and more people are trying to find balance and inner peace, and often the subject of "The chakras" appears, we always hear that we must keep them balanced or open ... but what exactly are the chakras? Here I can give you a brief and consistent explanation of what exactly they are:
The chakras are vortexes of energy located in the astral body along the spine, starting at the base of the spine and running upward to the crown. The Chakras coincide with a gland in the physical body and each one radiates a specific color and energy.
