Do you wonder if the Chakras, which are believed to be located in our body, are for real? Do these actually work, or is it just a mythical belief? We are going to look at some critical concepts in this article to ease your anxieties arising from the questions related to these Chakras.

Before digging deeper into it, let us quickly acquaint ourselves with basic knowledge about the Chakras and what role these play in the overall well being, be it a mental or physical condition of a person.

What are these Chakras?

"Chakra" is a word that originated from Sanskrit, which means a wheel. If we look around us, everything is in a state of circular motion, be it the earth, the sun, which is part of a bigger circle known as the universe. Our daily routine also involves activities that form a complete circle. This implies that the whole world is in a circle. For bodily chakras, these are the energy stations and are focal points for meditation within the human body. Seven vital centers in our body regulate the ongoing thought process.

These chakras assimilate the energy and channelize them in the best direction keeping you focused and goal-oriented. Sometimes there are often blockages that negatively impact a person, which can be felt but cannot be seen due to it being an intangible entity. The seven chakras are:

  1. Crown chakra
  2. Brow chakra
  3. Throat chakra
  4. Heart chakra
  5. Navel chakra
  6. Sex chakra
  7. Root chakra

The most important question- Are these real?

Since these chakras are not like organs in the physical body, they cannot be established as fixed facts that can be studied like doctors study bodily organs.
To understand this better, let us take the example of being sick. When you're sick, you feel the ailments; if you have a fever, your body temperature is high, and you feel tired.

We are completely aware of the fact that anything that needs to be validated in science needs proof, and what does not have proof are merely hypotheses which may be true or may not be. Science looks at everything with an eye of factual evidence. It believes in what it sees. Chakras in the body are not visible, and therefore there is no evidence of their presence in science. The negative or positive energies can be felt despite not being physically visible. Consequently, it is much beyond the easily understood concepts, and one needs to look far to get a grip on a better understanding of the chakras.


To sum it up, believing in Chakras ultimately depends upon your beliefs, and if you think you see it otherwise, you won't. Just like the belief in God, as even God is not visible or tangible, but people do feel the energy around them.

In the end, for Chakras, it can be rightly said that

"Everything you see is not real, and if you're not able to see something does not mean it does not exist."
