Chakra is a Sanskrit word that literally means a wheel or a disc. In practice, they are the points of the spiritual body that serve as the entry and exit points of our aura. These centers of activity are responsible in controlling our temperament, mood and overall body health. They do so by receiving, assimilating and expressing life's force energy. According to the chakra theory, therefore, controlling these chakras could directly influence your mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
