There are seven chakras that all people have, and the goal is to align them. Whenever a chakra is misaligned or the pathway blocked, it can cause bad energy which can then domino into bad emotions, bad health, stunt spiritual growth, and more. For those who have reached an awareness of the importance of the chakras, they often will have visual illustrations to remind them to keep these chakras aligned, Sometimes, tattoo wearers will even get a version of the seven chakras tattooed on their body, so they are always reminded of their importance.
