Literally speaking, the word “chakra” from Sanskrit translates to “wheel” or “disk,” but references a spiritual energy center within the human body. Whereas our physical organs process our physical matter (nutrients, blood for example) our chakras process our emotional matter ( security, love etc).
Commonly North Americans acknowledge 7-15 of them. There are seven primary chakras, as well as a number of minor chakras
Our energy centers can be affected by a number of factors, including our history, physical and mental health, and environment.

At any time, each of the chakras may fall into one of the
Active/Open - Functioning as intended, showing a healthy input and output of energy.
Underactive/Closed - In need of some type of stimulation to function healthfully Passive/Balanced - The chakra is at rest, or in a harmonious balance of input and output Overactive -
The chakra is overstimulated, and possibly trying to compensate for other imbalances in the body.
Chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit. When our chakra wheels spin in harmony, we feel balanced and at peace. When they spin out of alignment, our well-being may be compromised. A chakra denotes a point of intersection where the mind and body meet.

You must learn that with every thought there is a reaction. This response can either energize you or decrease your life force. For example, when you have a negative thought:
In your brain, Negative thoughts can blocked your Chakras or blocked the energy flow of your chakra. These thought will also affect your organs. The organs connected with the meridian are not properly nourished with vital energy and disease develops.
Your Chakra: The astral energy feedback changes in the chakra due to the bad thought. A block in the chakra occurs. Negative thinking drains away the energy of the aura. Negativity from the outside can pour in.
Also let's not forget the Law of Attraction, when negative thoughts are sent to the universe and all thoughts on that morphogenetic field will be attracted. The negativity becomes stronger and happens more often.
Simply realizing the existence of Chakras and investigating their functions can be beneficial.
