The word 'chakra' is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning
'wheel'; but perhaps even a better translation would be spinning
wheel. Chakra is actually a term which defines a number of lines
meeting on a common specific point. So in our bodies we have a
number of nerves crossing at various parts our body forming major
and minor energy meridians which carry the energy to different
parts of out body.
If you could see chakras you would be able to see each primary chakra as a spinning vortex or wheel of energy; spinning inward from the front of your body towards the centre point of that chakra on the kundalini and then spinning outward from that same point from your back.
We have seven major chakras which act like the 7 gateways for pranic energies to enter our aura so that the energy may be supplied to our subtle bodies and we also have a number of minor chakras in our bodies.
The chakras we are talking about are physical &metaphysical
In the physical body, these chakras are a result of the intersection ofvarious nerves or nadi’s and in the metaphysical terms these chakras are a result of the intersection of our nadi’s in our subtle bodies.
Everything that exists in this universe is just vibration so that means each chakra in our physical body & the subtle body will also have a specific vibration. So each of our chakras have a particular frequency on which they should vibrate to be in balance & harmony with all other chakras facilitating perfect health at all levels. Therefore each chakra has a particular sound, colour, fragrance, crystal which vibrate to a frequency matching to the chakra itself. So whenever a chakra is out of balance, we can tune in the chakra to the right frequency by using these tools. Each chakra needs to be properly balanced, energized, and spinning properly.
