Chakras are meridian points on spinal cord where the energy meridians are forming coils. A Meridian is an ‘energy highway’ or energetic vein in the human body. Prana or life force energy flows through the meridians, accessing all parts of the body.
As we have electrical currents running through our nervous system, correspondingly, electromagnetic waves are existent within and around our body, These electromagnetic waves interfere with the outside world.
When interference between energy meridians takes place, the hot channel & cold channel, a swirling effect or tornado gets created at the central canal along spinal cord. The main points at which this swirling effect is located is a chakra. The literal meaning of chakra in Sanskrit translates to wheel, denoting the rotating effect happening at the energy center.
