It is said that our body contains hundreds of chakras that are the key to the operation of our being. These "spinning wheels" draw-in coded information from our surroundings. Coded information can be anything from a color vibration to ultra-violet ray to a radio or micro wave to another person's aura. In essence our chakras receive the health of our environment, including the people we are in contact with (that's why other people's moods have an effect on us!). Learn about your colors and how to use your best energy!
