It is time.. For you to meet the "Kundalini" collection! And who ever talks about Kundalini energy, will have to mention the chakras.
So what are they?
A Chakra (Sanskrit: "wheel") is thought to be an energy point in the subtle body. Chakras are believed to be part of the subtle body, not the physical body, and as such, are the meeting points of the non-physical energy channels called nadi. Nadi are believed to be channels in the subtle body through which the life force or vital energy moves. Various scriptural texts and teachings present a different number of chakras. It's believed that there are many chakras in the subtle human body, according to the tantric texts, but there are seven chakras that are considered to be the most important ones.
Each chakra contains special characteristics and with proper training, moving Kundalini through these chakras can help express or open these characteristics.
Let's meet them, shall we? I will only briefly say a few things about each one of them and as you will quickly understand each chakra vibrates to a specific color... So working/ eating/ surrounding yourself with that specific color, clears blockages in that specific chakra...And you guessed it: Color Is Power! So let's color heal!
