Heart Chakra

Heart Chakra

The Heart Chakra is the fourth of the seven main chakras, and is known as the Anahata in Sanskrit, meaning heat; it is located in the centre of the chest, on the sternum or breastbone.  The heart chakra does not become activated until the biological ages of 4 to 7 years old.  This chakra is associated with the cross shape and the colours green and pink. The ruling planet is Saturn which is the planet of contraction, governing the pumping action of the lungs and heart, although it is also associated with the planets Venus and Mars; Venus because it is the planet of aesthetics, appreciation, and acceptance and Mars because of its domination over our primal passions.

The heart chakra is the “bridge” between the physical or lower self and the spiritual being, or higher self; the gateway to higher awareness as it's the seat of consciousness. The heart chakra is the centre of the personality energy field and where one begins to integrate the spiritual awareness and physical experience; it also acts as the balancing point for all the other main chakras. 

The Heart Chakra is about an unselfish, acceptance and unconditional love for others; it's about a universal unconditional love and hence is often referred to as the “love chakra”.  This chakra governs our relationships and how we interact with other people.  It is considered as the “love centre” of our human energy system and is often the chakra opened or used in the giving and receiving of an energy healing, e.g. when a child is hurt or ill, the first instincts is to pick it up and cradle it to the heart chakra – giving love and healing. Emotional hurt such as divorce, grief, emotional abuse etc. cause wounding to the heart chakra which can result in physical illnesses; these will not resolve until the emotional healing has occurred.  The wounded child in us lives within the heart chakra and unless healed and we learn to “love ourselves” we will not have a healthy fourth chakra.

Physically this chakra controls the heart, blood pressure, circulatory system, blood, lungs, rib cage, diaphragm, breasts, oesophagus, shoulders, arms, hands.  The endocrine gland connected to this chakra is the thymus, which is the gland that affects the body’s immune system.

A balanced healthy heart chakra “allows” us to accept not only ourselves and others, but our personal values and ethics, and to follow our own unique direction in life; this means we are able to expand and grow; to have freedom within ourselves as well as the confidence to carry on with inspiration and hope; we are able to offer forgiveness, unconditional love, letting go, trust, empathy and compassion.  A healthy and open heart chakra means we are in harmony with all that is around us and others. We are a very open, giving and loving person. We literally glow and radiate inner peace and happiness because we understand that love involves giving selflessly, with no expectations of anything in return and that is the greatest gift of all.

If this chakra is not balanced, we may find ourselves lacking in self-discipline, having difficulty in relationships, trying to live vicariously through someone else, or depending on another person for our own happiness.  Blockages in the heart chakra mean we may fear rejection, feel unworthy of love or loving too much. Not only do we feel unworthy of love and we are sceptical of anyone who wants to love us.  We may find ourselves in the negative states of despair, hatred, envy, fear, lacking in empathy, jealousy and/or anger.  Physically if the heart chakra is not healthily balanced we are open to such conditions as heart problems, asthma, lung & breast cancers, thoracic spine, pneumonia, upper back and shoulder issues. 

Placing any of the green or pink crystals on or around the chakra during a meditation specifically written with this chakra in mind will balance and energise it.  The use of heart chakra crystals in the form of pendants or as tumblestones in the bra may help to reduce the risk for those who are considered as being at high risk of developing heart problems, or chest/breast cancers, by improving the energy flow in these areas as a preventative measure.

The crystals of choice include:  Malachite, Emerald, Green tourmaline, jade, Chrysoprase, Dioptase, Peridot, green Aventurine, Moss Agate, Green Jasper, Green Kyanite, Green Tourmaline, Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Rhodochrosite, Kunzite.
