1. (in Indian thought) each of the centers of spiritual power in the human body, usually considered to be seven in number.Chakras are another way of looking at mental healing. It is all about mind and body and there are seven different chakras that you must keep “balanced” in order to maintain a balanced energy throughout your body. Chakras help keep every part of our body open and aligned. If you don’t keep these balanced, things will start to fall out of place. Mind, body, soul, and spirit are all connected when you keep your chakras aligned, and balanced.
