Are Chakras real?
Like many other man-made religious ideas, the Chakra is the construct of human minds and imaginations. From its inception in ancient India until today, the ideas behind the meaning and use of the Chakra have evolved and changed. Suffice it to say it is now a part of modern "New Age" thinking that encompasses holistic concepts of maintaining the balance of the body.
Like any other New Age idea or concept, there is absolutely nothing about Chakras found in God's Word, and that should be enough for every child of God to steer clear of playing with it in any way.
The best passage of Scripture I can find concerning this type of thing is the following:
See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. Colossians 2:8-10 (ESV)
Why would we search within for anything when we've already been given all things in Christ?
