Chakra Dhyana for stress free life in our busy world.

We all know we are stressed, running with our busy schedule and have lot many things to focus on. Ever felt, that while trying to make a living we forgot to live?  To unwind from my crazy lifestyle and virtual world that I live in, with real-time connectivity and every thing being mentioned "High-Priority", I lost my focus. No peace, No patience and constant temper issues. That is when I opted for meditation. Honestly, I lose my focus on pranayama badly, So my friend suggested Chakra Dhyana. And then my life was never the same again. It is a most beautiful and holistic meditation. It won't take your more time and will leave you peaceful. 

What is Chakra Dhyana?

The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disc. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. The energy that flows through these chakras is called the Kundalini shakti,(Supreme universal power) the prana, the life force.

Chakra Dhyana helps to align the energy flowing between all the chakras and harmonises the individual.
