What Is Your Strongest Chakra? Take the Quiz to Find Out
“Chakra” in Sanskrit comes from the root word “wheel,” and can be best understood as a revolving conical energy in the body. There are seven chakras along the spine, and each one corresponds to specific colors, smells, sounds, behaviors, crystals and more.
Each chakra is thought to vibrate at the same frequency of its location on the spine. The more aligned the chakras are, the more you will experience the utmost energy flowing from this area.
Each energy center can either be open, spinning quickly and liberally, and allowing for fluidity; or it can be closed, which means this energy is blocked from experiencing a smooth and graceful presence. When it is closed, you may find yourself feeling “off,” experiencing tension, negative emotions and more.
