Today is the turn of our central chakra, the Heart Chakra.
The Heart Chakra connects our lower chakras, the ones that are predominantly associated with out physical body, with our higher charkas, which are predominantly associated with our spiritual and emotional bodies. In particular, the Heart Chakra deals with love, but not just that of others, it is also enormously connected to the love we have for ourselves. When it is in balance, we feel loved and in harmony with those around us. It helps us to forgive, and allows us to feel compassion. When it is stagnant, out of balance, or blocked, it can bring about feelings of jealousy, fear of abandonment, anger and lack of empathy and compassion. It is physically connected to our circulatory system and lungs, and ailments such as high blood pressure and asthma, among others.
The most effective way to heal the Heart Chakra is to express gratitude and to be compassionate towards yourself as well as others.
Sitting comfortable, take a few deep cleansing breaths and visualise a green flower bud where your heart is. With each breath, the green flower begins to open, and beautiful green light begins to emanate from within it and spreads throughout your entire body. Say out loud, or to yourself;
“I love myself. I have love in abundance. I accept myself and those around me fully, with compassion and grace. I am grateful for all that I have. I am grateful for all that I am. I release any fear of rejection.”
This chakra is associated with the colour green, and being surrounded by the greenery of nature is very healing for the heart. Eating green vegetables will help, as well as wearing green clothes, and carrying green crystals such as Malachite, Jade, Emerald, or Peridot.
Keep your Heart Chakra healthy and open, folks. It is the bridge between the physical and spiritual bodies and when in balance can help influence the activity of the higher chakras enormously.
Love and light, peeps.
