Chakras (from Sanskrit, signifying wheel or circle) take their roots in Yoga and Ayurveda medicine.
They are already mentioned in the writings of the "four Tantras" and are named as main energy centers of the body.
A chakra can also be considered as a level of consciousness. The Pranayama Kosha in Yoga corresponds to the vital
energy field where are concentrated the different qualities of energy in body, consciousness and character.
One can imagine the position of the chakras as shown in the picture below. The chakras are linked by energy lines (Prana-Nadis). Vital energy flows through the chakras with their vital energy lines. This vital energy changes its quality and quantity according to the position of the chakras.
These energies are standing in constant interaction. The work on chakras and the harmonization of chakras according to ancient teachings take place about the vital energy lines and the chakras themselves from the feet up to the head. In the big healing traditions established in the Far East, systems of energy lines have developed, which often keenly vary but always are very efficient in their effectiveness.
Everybody is able to activate his / her chakras, that is to say charge them with energy or give off some energy. This exchange of energy is a constant natural procedure. The natural exchange of energy in the body is it disturbed, vital energy blockades have occurred and the person has fallen ill or is suffering from pains.
