The seven main human chakras: their location, colors, meaning and discovery
In order for a person to successfully exist and interact with the environment, it is important for him to receive energy in the required amount. The real energy that gives inner strength, makes you achieve your goals, love and give love, is formed through the chakras.
They are the conductor that catches and attracts prana. People with developed chakras are distinguished by their love of life, calmness, ability to achieve what they want and appreciate all that they have, inner peace and harmony.
If a person is aware of the need to open the chakras, then for this there are a number of exercises that help to achieve the desired result.
The chakra is the psycho-energetic center of a person, which is the area of intersection of the channels through which the vital energy necessary for human existence passes. Chakras are also called whirlpools, energy swirls or circles.
Many chaotically connected energies are concentrated in the environment, and not all of them are necessary for people. The main meaning of the chakra is to identify and conduct the necessary energy through itself.
Whirlwinds carry the functions of a receiver and transmitter, working with electromagnetic fields, turning them into prana (energy), which fills a person with life force.
With the help of the whirlwinds, a person can not only receive energy, but also exchange it and give it away to others. So, young children are often energy donors, and old people are the opposite.
From this it follows that the chakras are not only for absorption, but also for release and can be in one of these states alternately.
When people understand how their energy whirlpools work, they can better know themselves and those around them, solve difficult problems, be able to pass and accept tests and develop.
Cycles are located on the body of each person, some people can see them, but this is possible only with long workouts with the implementation of various practices. Externally, the chakras resemble shining circular funnels.

The story of one of our readers Alina R .:
Money has always been my main concern. Because of this, I had a bunch of complexes. I considered myself a failure, problems at work and in my personal life haunted me.
However, I decided that I still needed personal help. Sometimes it seems that the matter is in you, all the failures are only a consequence of bad energy, the evil eye or some other evil force.
But who will help in a difficult life situation, when it seems that all life is rolling down the slope and passing by you. It is difficult to be happy working as a cashier for 26 thousand rubles, when you had to give 11 for renting an apartment.
What was my surprise when my whole life suddenly changed for the better overnight. I could not even imagine that one could earn so much money that at first glance a knickknack could have such an effect.
It all started with the fact that I ordered a personal one.
