With the proliferation of energy hunting comes the emergence of an ancient system originating in India. The Chakra is the Sanskrit translation to the more familiar word: wheel, and is an indication of the energy points located in our body. It is said that these seven spinning disks of energy run along the spine, and should remain open and aligned as they manifest our emotional and physical well-being. Their strategic locations correlate with our body’s major organs, allowing lymphatic and endocrine drainage, helping our body to flush out the bad energy and embrace the good. Need we say more? Stay aligned with your Chakras by wearing a charm around your arm or neck. P.S. It’s the perfect conversation starter! .
