The word 'chakra' has a Sanskrit origin, meaning 'wheel'. There are seven active chakras in the body, and they are supposed to be the powerful energy wheels that course through the spine, infusing the body with life. These chakras affect our lives physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, and spiritually.
Chakras are not a part of the physical body - they are not a tangible component that one can sense. But they are still there, as a part of the subtle body, and can be activated through certain meeting points. Their activation helps life force, called 'prana', into the body, coursing through the veins, energizing the nerves, and helping us balance our lives.
Chakras, Crystals, and Energies
Chakras, the energy nodes that exist within the bioplasmic body, are believed to govern our bodily functions. Each one has a color associated with it and has a specific meaning. In many cases, crystal wands are used to open and balance the chakras too.
Spiritual masters believe that every chakra is associate with a particular body part, and when they are re-energized and healed with the help of crystals, they help the person become more positive, balanced, clear, and peaceful.
