These are spinning cone shaped 'energy' centers in our body, and are part of our aura. They help carry energy to different parts of our body. They give your body ‘life force’. Healers concentrate on these energy centers to help people heal.
There are many chakras throughout the body; however, there are 7 that are easily seen as part of the human aura.
Each Major Chakra is about 7-8cm. Each one spins and has a certain color and has a part to play in your body with your vital organs and making sure they work correctly. The colors of the chakra are not the same as the colors of the Aura.
