“When you know True LOVE, you know true Power” ~N. Love
4th Chakra – HEART Chakra
Sanskrit Word: ANAHATA
Ability: Love/Passion. Joy. Acceptance. Inner peace. Relationships. Connected.
Principle: The heart chakra governs the “I Love” principle. It’s the love force in your body.
Don’t let the heart chakra fool you. Yes it may be all about Love, Love, Love, BUT love is a powerful force (faster than light, but shhhh, I don’t know how science can test love so people may think I’m crazy lol). The heart is the strongest electromagnetic field in the body. Therefore it’s energy is in control! Remember Einstein said that an object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an equal or opposite force… Well LOVE will knock any object off it’s course! That makes me wonder what love can do for you?
When the heart chakra is balanced and connected, you love. The heart charka is deeply in love and connected to everybody and everything. When your heart chakra is open, you are open to love and accepting life however it may unfold. Your life is filled with joy, peace, and happiness. Because love heals all, the heart chakra is also the key to healing yourself 😉 Without balance in the heart chakra, you can not effectively heal.
“The energy of the mind is thought.
When the thoughts are out of alignment with that of the heart,
the energy moves to balance itself.
Any energy that is not in harmony with that of the Heart,
is automatically moved into balance.
This movement can be seen as chaos.”
Oh the Damage of A Broken Heart
We’ve all had our heart broken, not fun at all. Things like conditional love, being bullied, a break up, rejection from others, and feeling emotionally hurt, can throw your heart chakra all out of whack. The heart is the balance between the mind and the body. Without the ability to Love, you feel like life is hopeless. When the energy flow is too low you may feel codependent, restricted, trapped, and hopeless. An overactive chakra can make you feel feelings of inflated self importance, an ego trip, jealousy, and possessiveness.
When you are emotionally hurt, you may want to be alone, become selfish, and dismiss unconditional love. But this is simply pain. Pain that you are not aware of. Issues in this chakra is like running a lot of apps on your smart phone or tablet. Over time some apps can drain your battery. You really don’t notice until your battery keeps dying. LOVE IS your most powerful source of energy. So without love, you are unable to do the things that you would normally do. Even though you are unaware, the issues are still blocking your ability to heal AND your personal power.
Without the ability to love yourself,
You can never receive love from another.
In loving yourself,
You Radiate unconditional love
And then the flow of unconditional love is returned.
But you must first GIVE in order to RECEIVE!
Oh Gosh, I Can’t Find It, Is It Frozen?
The heart chakra is at the center of the chest, just above the heart. This chakra gives energy to the Thymus gland. The heart chakra also energizes the heart, lower lungs, pectoral muscles, thoracic spine, lymphatic system, circulatory system, respiratory system, arms, shoulders, hands, ribs, & back. Sheesh, the heart chakra is running things! So any imbalances in the heart chakra would manifest in these areas.
Love Can Heal All, Even Your Heart Chakra!
In order for the heart chakra to move into balance, you must first love YOURself. Let me say this another way 🙂 You can not experience unconditional love unless you love yourself FIRST. Because loving yourself is the only thing that WILL open your heart chakra. And you can not accept love from anyone or anything if your heart is closed. Once your heart is open, the energy of love just oozes from you. You can’t help but love.
So let’s get this heart chakra open 🙂 I would first like to start by saying… You’re AMAZing!!! You are beautiful, and I believe in you. How does that make you feel? Hold that feeling for 15 minutes a day 🙂 Yup, that’s all it took 😉 Simply hold on to that feeling. But you can also:
- Breathe 🙂 Yes the heart chakra governs the respiratory system. Open your lungs and let the oxygenating energy flow in 😉
