Last week we talked about the power chakra. We discussed what it is, where it is and what it does. I told you how to tell if it is out of balance or closed. I also told you what to do to make it healthy and working properly. This week we’re exploring
Our fourth energy center is the heart chakra, sometimes called Anahatha. It’s located in the center of the chest, its color is green and its element is air.
This is the area of compassion and self-acceptance, of feeling and of love. Here we find the power to accept and care for others on a deep level. Here we find the hunger for love and the acceptance of others.
The heart chakra reminds us that to love and accept others we must also learn to love and accept ourselves.
Like the other chakras, the Anahatha vibrates on a certain frequency. You can choose to participate in activities that vibrate on the same frequency. The good news is your attention is all it takes to start the process. Wearing green clothing or jewelry helps because green vibrates on the same frequency.
Look in a mirror and say I love you to your image. (and mean it)
Give away your last bite
Read past journals or diaries and feel compassion for the person you were then.
Keep a faith box
When your heart chakra is healthy and open you will feel worthy of love. Trust will come easy. Commitment to a good relationship will naturally seem like the thing to do.
Life can be a bit rough. Although we all naturally come into this world with a vibrant green heart chakra, ready to love, ready to accept, ready to belong and ready to care. Shit happens! People disappoint us. Some of them downright hurt us.
When this happens your heart chakra can become damaged. Your flow of energy that vibrates on the frequency of love is blocked. So how do you know when your heart chakra is damaged? Oh, trust me you’ll know.
You’re afraid of commitment.
You feel you have to please others to be loved.
You have been hurt by others in relationships and feel you have to guard yourself against being hurt again.
Deep inside you feel love is dangerous.
These are sure-fire signs of a damaged chakra. The upside is when you become aware of your heart chakra it begins to heal just because of your attention to it.
Practicing the activities listed above can greatly speed healing and restoration into your life. Also when meditating, think of things that are good and kind. Remember to bless people often. When someone is hurt, ill, or just having a bad day, try to muster up as much genuine compassion as you can. This may feel fake and unreal to you in the beginning, but keep it up. Your heart chakra will blossom, and compassion will become natural to you.
I’m so excited about next week because I will get to talk about one of my favorite subjects. You guessed it. I’m talking about the throat chakra. Hope to see you here and as always: May blessings find you in your life. May peace and prosperity rain down upon you. Blessed be!
