The heart chakra, also known as Anahata, located in the centre of the chest. Symbolised by a deep emerald green colour, the colour of new life and natural beauty. This chakra colours our life with unconditional love, compassion, and well-being. This chakra is the integration point for the seven other chakras of the body.
When the heart chakra symbol is open, we are able to forgive easier, our lungs are clear and our immune system is healthy. The higher chakras cannot be assessed until we pass through the heart.
This is the chakra that governs how we relate to others and how we handle relationships. It is also the chakra involved in change and transformation.
When the heart chakra is free and balanced we feel deeply connected and experience a harmonious exchange of energies with all that is around us. We tend to have a better appreciation of beauty, wonder and magic.
If you have trouble when it comes to relationships, you are certainly not alone. The heart chakra is the centre of your energetic system, and it connects you to others through the emotion of love. This beautiful chakra, located at the heart, is the seat of your soul and the centre of love.
When this chakra is blocked you may experience difficulties in how you relate to others. The energy of the heart chakra is calming and soothing, like a soft carpet of grass under your feet. It is the colour of nature, the trees and the grass.
The main meanings or functions associated with the heart chakra are:
- Love for oneself and others
- Relating, relationships
- Compassion, empathy
- Forgiveness, acceptance
- Transformation, change
- Ability to grieve and reach peace
- Compassionate discernment
- Centre of awareness, integration of insights
When this chakra is open you may feel more deeply connected to the harmonious exchange of energy with all that is around you. Having an open heart chakra can help you find true love.
