Chakras (energetic centres)
In our subtle system, chakras represent our energetic centres. They are placed in correspondence with our physical nervous plexuses. They take care of our physical functionalities, of our psicological aspects and of our spiritual qualities.
Chakras are wheels of energy and rotate with opportune spin; in optimal conditions, they generate a state of perfect harmony at every level: spiritual, physical and psicological. Whatever physical or psicological problems arise inside us, they are definetely rooted in malfunctioning chakras.
