The Chakra is a subtle energy center which cannot be normally perceived. A chakra is a center of activity that receives, assimilates, and expresses life force energy.
The word chakra literally translates as wheel or disk and refers to a spinning sphere of bioenergetic activity emanating from the major nerve ganglia branching forward from the spinal column
The chakras are like batteries.  Every day we are exhausting them and every night we are doing recharging. But in one point we are exhausting more then recharging.
If we are not taking any action to correct this unbalance, very soon our subtle problem becoming physical problem. 
The human being has seven major Chakras and these correspond to autonomic nerve plexuses which are explained below. 
 
Mooladhara Chakra – Pelvic plexus
First Chakra, situated below the sacrum bone.
Element: Earth / Carbon.
Physical Aspect: Prostrate gland.
Qualities: Innocence, wisdom, chastity, sense of direction, balance, joy, purity, auspiciousness, simplicity.
Causes of Catch: Sexual excessiveness, tantric & occult practices.
In the body the Mooladhara Chakra controls the excretory functions, as well as sexual activity, and exerts a general control on the sympathetic nervous system. When the Kundalini rises, then this centre becomes inactive in the excretion functions but active in the support of the rising of the Kundalini.
 
Swadisthana Chakra – Aortic plexus
Second Chakra, situated above the sacrum bone.

On the physical level this center plays an important role in controlling the abdominal organs such as the liver, kidneys and the large intestines. The reproductive organs of the woman are also partly controlled by this center. It also determines the concentrative power of the attention, it’s sharpness.
 
The Nabhi Chakra – Solar Plexus

In our body this Chakra controls the stomach, the pancreas and many other organs around the solar plexus. Material satisfaction and a sense of a calm arising from a healthy Nabhi Chakra allows our attention to turn to subtler things.
 
The Void (Bhavsagara) Ocean of Illusion

The Void, the Ocean of Illusion (Bhavsagara) surrounds the 2nd and 3rd chakras: the Swadisthana and Nabhi chakras. When the Kundalini is awakened the ten valencies (The Ten Commandments) are awakened within. The religion becomes innate, and our whole priorities change. For, the religion in Sahaja Yoga is the ultimate of every religion of any form. It is not limited to one religion, but has the best of all religions. All real religions are leading to one aim, to one goal. That goal is to achieve Self knowledge through our second birth.

This chakra is placed behind the sternum in the spinal cord and produces the anti-bodies till the age of twelve years. These anti-bodies are circulated into the whole body to be ready to fight any kind of attack on the body or mind.

The Sahasrara is the tabernacle of the higher synthesis between our consciousness and divinity. To express the glory of this dimension, words (as do thoughts) fail.
