Does your heart chakra need opening?
If you have any of these emotional symptoms your heart chakra may be unbalanced:
Lack of Empathy
Lack of Boundaries
Heart Chakra is one of the most common areas we need to work on.
We have 7 chakras and they are like an orchestra in the body- when one is out the rest can be out.
Chakras represent specific frequencies and colours.
If the Heart Chakra is closed, out of balance, and not moving the frequency it should be, we may find that we can be filled with bitterness, anger, grief, jealousy even hatred, all these emotions are physical manifestations of the heart chakra that needs to be healed.
So we can learn how to Heart Chakra , which is a beautiful experience. Sometimes the blockage has been experienced since childhood or could be a present situation, by opening the heart is then the start of your healing process.
The heart chakra is where physical and spiritual come together. Located at the exact centre of the chest, it corresponds to heart, lungs, thymus gland, and the cardiac plexus.
It is referred to as the Anahata in Sanskrit which means unhurt, it is the spiritual place where past experiences and grief and hurt cannot harm us. The Heart Chakra is associated with the colour green, which stands for transformation and love energy, pink also resonates here at the heart.
If the heart chakra is properly balanced, it shows by your personal conduct. If the Heart Chakra is opened we are full of love, forgiveness and compassion. Conversely, if the heart chakra is blocked it has a negative effect on your emotional health, mental health, physical, and spiritual. Physically you may suffer poor circulation and blood pressure extreme, heart, chest and lung issues. On a Spiritual level , a blocked Heart Chakra can cause a feeling of disconnect and lack of compassion, lack of empathy and even anger and emotionally the struggle of trusting others, even yourself . Deep insecurity , low self esteem and various and fears are also common. These can develop negatively into mental challenges like manipulative behaviours.
When the heart is opened, naturally you feel love and compassion for others and those around. When your heart chakra is balanced it allows us to be our authentic self rather than trying to mold into someone we are not or trying to reach everyone elses expectations.
If we live from Anahata (heart chakra ) then we find it is a joyous and engaging place to live from.
A person with an open Heart Chakra is always altruistic and always respects other people and understanding everyone has their own story to tell. If your heart chakra is open then people around them will notice an easy going peace about you and often want to be in your company and the peace around you is very noticeable When Is The Heart Chakra Blocked?
So how to heal the heart chakra:
So if you are experiencing the symptoms of a closed and imbalance Heart Chakra, you will feel a constant state of negativity about yourself or others in your life, and even bitterness
The way to heal the Heart Chakra is to change your perspective, essentially shifting your frame of mind from one that is always focused on the things that you don’t like, and changing that perspective to one that is full of gratitude.
From this thought process you will begin to realise how grateful you should be for your life, friends and family, your work, your food and a roof over your head.
The very simple act of being grateful for the many things that you have been given so far in this life is what will begin to bring balance into your Heart Chakra.
When it is balanced, you will feel a warm, compassionate joy for and with the world.
