Meaning of the chakra's

In the Far East people believe in chakras which are important for body and mind. The seven chakras are centers of energy in the human body. Chakra means wheel or circle in Sanskrit. Chakras can become blocked, causing you to be out of balance. For example, by practicing yoga and meditation, smelling scents or eating the right food, you can 'open' a chakra again. Symbols and gemstones are also associated with chakras and by wearing this jewelry you can support the relevant chakra.
