Chapter 6 - Chakras


Chakras are whirlpools of energy, positioned over certain anatomical
centres (plexes) of the physical body. It is not possible to pinpoint them
anatomically. According to ancient Indian explanations, it is trough the
Chakras that vital energy is drawn into and channeled through the body.
Stimulation of the Chakras through meditation creates a feeling of healing
and balancing, beneficial to both mental and physical health. Crystals of
specific colours, placed on specific Chakras, stimulate these processes.
