Chakras or the centres of life force when related with forms of esoteric divination like Runes, Tarot cards and Kabbalah, can provide immense knowledge about your personal wellbeing.
There are altogether seven chakras, located from the head to the backbone. They are Crown chakra (at the top), Third Eye chakra, Throat chakra, Heart chakra, Solar Plexus chakra, Sacral chakra and Root chakra.
Kundalini yoga awakens the bottommost chakra and balances it with the topmost chakra. Each of the chakra has specific attributes which when awakened takes the person to another higher energy level. A person who is said to have achieved the awakening of chakras and attained Kundalini state is said to be enlightened.
Lets see what the relationship between Chakras and runes stones actually is. Runes reading is a form of fortune telling based on inscriptions on stones called the Elder Futhark. Based on what stone you pick, your future can be predicted. You can feel the energy of runes flowing into your body in the manner in which it is awakened by your chakras.
