The 7 chakras are referred to as the “wheel” or “life-force” that rotates inside of us. I started working with my chakras as a result of the off-balance energy I was feeling in my day to day life. Everything in human form is energy, including our thoughts. Releasing this energy into chakra affirmations can help raise the overall vibrations of your body.
