The flow of energy through the body can be blocked several ways. An illness or an injury can stop the flow. The seven chakra points within the body can also be a stopping point. To understand the techniques of chakra breathing as a tool for maintaining or achieving inner balance, one must know what chakras are and where they are located within the body. Each chakra point is represented by a different vibration, color, symbol, and even sound. To be able to bring them into balance one must know which color or symbol or vibration goes with which power point. This knowledge will make deciding on the best technique easier.
