The chakras are seven key points in the subtle body that can be described as energy centers and vehicles of consciousness. According to yogic tradition, the subtle body is the part of you that you can't see or touch. It is where your energy flows and where experiences and memories reside. These energetic fields are a vital part of our being. When balanced we can feel joy, face our fears, and experience freedom. When out of balance, we feel the weight of anxiety, pain, and self-sabotage.
