Chakras are the nerve junctions between the tailbone and crown of humans. Translated, chakra means a wheel or a wheel, whereby the wheel should not be too tight, but also should not be too loose. When these wheels are in balance, the body and mind function in a positive flow. All chakras are connected to the soul and represent a quality of the human being. The chakras are often depicted as a lotus flower, because the energy is located in the lower chakra and is passed through the channels to the crown chakra. Awareness, education and self-development promote the opening of the chakras.

The first chakra is the root chakra and represents the connection with the earth. The red color symbolizes the connection with the earth and stands for passion, energy and warmth. Close to the tailbone, in our pelvic floor, the first chakra is located and thus lies at our roots. As a result, the earthly and earthly connection with man is intertwined. This root chakra represents the grounding in our lives. Muladhara has to do with the bones, organs and muscles and forms the basis of the body.

Ajna – third eye
The sixth chakra is also called the third eye. The chakra represents the intuition within yourself, concentration and awareness. Ajna is translated "knowing." This means that conscience has a greater influence in the life of a person and the choices he/she makes.
