The chakra tradition is rooted in early Hindu traditions that differ between the Indian religions. Many Buddist texts consistently mention five chakras. Hindu sources practice the meditative use of six or seven focal points.
The 7 Chakras are an ancient system of energy points thought to be in the body and in control of certain elements and energies. They are located starting from the very top point of your head and down in a line to just below your hips. These points hold your body's energy (prana) and can go in and out of alignment, which can create subtle energy shifts or even illness.
