Chakras are the meeting points of energy channels in the subtle body. In other words, chakras are the centers through which the energy in our body flows. There are 7 main chakras, which are the central points that keep energy flowing through our bodies in a balanced way. You can envision chakras as wheels of energy located between the base of the spine and the top of the head. They are important to our spiritual and physical well-being and to everyday life, as they influence the flow of our energy and emotions. When one or more chakra becomes blocked, the body can become imbalanced. In this case, it’s easy to face emotional distress or become ill. For this reason, it’s important to know about the 7 chakras and know how to influence them.
Each chakra has its own color, and that color can help you to connect with it in order to release any blocked energy. Using crystals whose colors correspond to the chakras is one of the most effective ways to connect with the chakras.
Sacral Chakra - The sacral chakra is located in the lower abdomen, just below the navel. The sacral chakra has an orange color, and it circulates energies related to sexuality and pleasure. It is also related to your sense of well-being and abundance and to your creative abilities.
Solar Plexus Chakra -The solar plexus chakra, which is a yellow color, is located in the upper abdomen, around the stomach. The solar plexus chakra is associated with confidence, sense of self-worth, and willpower. Its flow relates to how confident we feel and how able we are to accomplish our goals.
Heart Chakra - The heart chakra, as its name implies, is located in the center of the chest right above the heart. The heart chakra has two different colors, pink and green. The heart chakra is associated with all kinds of love, including romantic love, love towards family, friendship, and love of self. Opening up the heart chakra helps you to open yourself up to love and to forgiveness.

Opening the throat chakra can help you to express your feelings and speak eloquently. It can help you to communicate and connect with others.
Third Eye Chakra - The third eye chakra, associated with the color indigo, is located in the center of the forehead between the eyes (for this reason it is also known as the brow chakra).

Crown Chakra - The crown chakra, the highest of all the chakras, is located at the very top of your head. It is associated with the color white, a combination of all colors. Energy in the crown chakra connects you to the spiritual and to something bigger than yourself. The crown chakra enables you to feel connected with your spiritual self and with the world as a whole. Through the crown chakra, you can experience pure bliss.
