The heart chakra, which in Sanskrit is Anahata(unscathed) is the 4th fundamental chakra that represents where the physical and spiritual meet. It’s our means to love and to arouse spiritual awareness. This chakra is linked with unconditional love, joy, compassion, and inner peace. Its color is green and represents a revision and the energy of love. When balanced love and compassion circulate freely both in giving and receiving.
The location is the heart region, lungs, thymus, breast, and arms. Crystals for this chakra are rose quartz, aventurine, emerald, malachite, and amazonite. These crystals assist with congestion in the heart and develop love and compassion.
When blocked feelings of anger, jealousy, fear of betrayal and hate towards yourself and others, trust issues, feeling of loneliness, and afraid of intimacy.
Unblocking this chakra is very important if you want to love and be loved.
Journaling about what you are grateful for, meditation using the sound “yam”, positive affirmations like, “ I’m giving and receiving love unconditionally”, yoga, breathing exercises, surround yourself with the color green, and forgiveness are great ways to unblock this chakra.
Now that you have a better understanding of the heart chakra and how to keep it balanced, I hope you find the love and peace within yourself.
I leave you with love, peace, and positivity. Namaste!
