The Chakra means vortex, the word however translates to 'wheel' from Sanskrit and refers to energy points in our bodies that improve overall health.
Chakras are a complex and ancient energy system that originated in India, specifically in Hinduism. The chakras were first mentioned in the religious sacred Hindu text, The Vedas, around 1500 to 1000 BC.
It is approximated that there are a total of 114 chakras, but that there are seven main chakras that run alongside the areas from the end of our spine to the crown of our head. The seven chakras include; Muladhara the root chakra by chanting 'Lam' referring to 'I am', Svadisthana sacral chakra by chanting 'Vam' referring to 'I feel', Manipura the solar plexus chakra by chanting 'Ram' referring to 'I do', Anahata the heart chakra by chanting 'Yam' referring to 'I love', which is said to be the weakest chakra among all, Vishuddha the throat chakra by chanting 'Ham' referring to 'I speak', Ajna the third eye chakra by chanting 'Aum' referring to 'I see', and Sahasrara referring to crown chakra which does not include chanting and refers to the action 'I know'.

Each color associated with the Chakras has a purpose. In case you have trouble with any particular chakra it is advised to focus on things of the particular color to which the chakra belongs.
