It has come to my attention many are confused about chakras so i will create an intro, climax and conclusion on this and try my best to update this
What are chakras?
Chakras are vorticies of energy scattered accross the subtle body which means they cannot be found physically. You cannot call a chakra a gland nor can it be transplanted contrary to popular belief. There are 7 major chakras (which we will focus on) 21 minor and numerous miniscule (very small) chakras. These chakras have many different purposes (mainly the major ones) they control every aspect of our selves regardless our conciousness of it. The chakras are responsible for our emotion, our thought, our energy intake and our psychic abilities the chakras once attuned must be maintained to preserve quality of life.
What are nadis?
Nadis (pronounced na-dees) are the energy counterpart ot veins and capilleries. The nadis are the pathways through which our chakra energy is passed through, the nadis also need ot cleansed from time to time.This can be done by special breathing exercises.
What is aura?
Now you may be wondering why aura is included here.
Auras are our energy identification cards (metaphorically speaking) it reflects US our true self, which no one else knows, it also gives you insight on how to improve our selves, the aura is coloured by the 7 main chakras, our chakras also are aligned to divinity as you will see soon in this thread.The brightness or absense of a colour can fortell which chakra is most inactive and which virtues/values you have to fix within yourself.
