There are multiple chakras in the human body, but I will only cover the seven main chakras that most people are familiar with. Your energy field and chakra centers fluctuate, expand, contract, and vibrate at different frequencies depending on how you are feeling emotionally or what you might be experiencing. These frequencies are a direct reflection of your inner state of being and will be reflected by one or more colors to people who can see the aura, or Kirlian photography is also able to capture aura colors.
Keeping your chakras balanced and clear not only helps your physical wellbeing but also your emotional wellbeing. Our subtle body and our chakras are a storehouse of information about us from this life and our past lives. Our chakras record all of our experiences both the pleasant and the not so pleasant. Some psychics specifically read the chakras during psychic readings to help the client remove energies that no longer serve them. Psychics can see things from past incarnations that may be affecting you in this life as well and help you to clear them. Clearing these from your energy field promotes healing and releases energies and experiences that are no longer serving you.
