Heart Chakra

Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is located in the centre of your body level with your heart running from front to back. The colour that is associated with this Chakra is green, or at higher vibrational levels pink. The symbol attached is the symbol that represents the Heart.
 
This Chakra is connected to our heart, compassion, love and beauty. It is connected to our love for ourselves, love for others, self worth view of the world and seeing the joy in life.
 
It is important that we ensure this Chakra (and all Chakras) are balanced. If any chakra is out of balance it can affect us physically, emotionally or spiritually. Whilst in balance it can give us feelings of:
Love for self
Love for others
Joy
Happiness
Self-acceptance
Peace
 
When it is out of balance it can give us feelings of:
Worthlessness
Low self-esteem
Hate
Jealousy
Inability to communicate clearly with others
Feelings of rejection
 
The Sanskrit name is Anahata.
 
Working with the Heart Chakra
 
Meditation
Lay or sit comfortably
Close your eyes
Breathe in through your nose
Breathe our your mouth
Long, slow, deep breaths
Imagine roots going deep into the ground
They anchor you to this plane
Imagine Green energy coming up through the ground
Imagine a green cone going out from the top of your belly in front and behind you ground
The energy slowly goes up your body encompassing you
Imagine the energy flowing through and around you
It is dispelling negativity and brings only good energy
Stay like this breathing long, slow, deep breaths for as long as you want
When you are ready imagine the energy slowly stopping
Focus on your breathing
Bring your awareness back into your body
When you are back into your body slowly wiggle your fingers and toes
When you are fully back into your body slowly open your eyes
Stay where you are for a few minutes
When you are ready slowly stand up
 
Crystals
Working with your Heart Chakra you would be best suited to use green or pink crystals. Hold them in your hands carry them with you, wear jewellery with green or pink stones in, place them just below your belly button whilst you meditate.
 
Nature
Walking in nature or on grass without footwear helps ground you. Do it regularly to see the difference.
