You are probably familiar with the terms “third eye” and “root” if you have taken yoga lessons. Yogis frequently discuss the need of grounding through the base or concentrating on the third eye.

Let us have a look at the seven chakras, their locations on the body, the symbols they represent, and the chakra colors. This article provides an overview of chakras for novices in an easy-to-understand manner. We will discuss each chakra in greater detail in subsequent posts.

Beginner Guide to 7 Chakras and its Meaning

Chakra, often spelled Cakra, is a Sanskrit term that translates as “wheel” and refers to the body’s primary energy centers. The chakra concept was originally mentioned in India’s Vedas between 1500 and 500 B.C.

Although other yogic writings suggest that there are 88,000 centers, the seven primary chakras are frequently mentioned. These seven energy centers run the length of the spine, from the crown chakra to the tail bone (root chakra). As the term (wheel) indicates, the chakras are supposed to be energy-spinning wheels.

Each of the seven chakras will have its own character (a lotus flower with various petals) and is related with a specific color, stone, or other element.
