Chakras are the energy centers within our bodies that are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura. The function of the seven major chakras is to vitalize the physical body, to bring about the development of our self-consciousness, and are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions. The first chakra (root) actually hangs outside of your body. It is located between your thighs, about halfway between your knees and your physical body. The seven chakra (crown) is located on the top of your head. The remaining chakras, (sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, and third eye), are aligned in sequence along your spine, neck, and skull.

Examples:
Nancy knew that her chakras were misaligned because she often became panicked over the tiniest of upsets.
