The Heart Chakra Represented by green.
The Heart Chakra is located in the region of the physical heart. Its Sanskrit name is anahata. The heart chakra is the center of your spirit as well as the center of the chakras, making it a vital energy center for our spiritual, mental, and physical well-being. It is associated with love, compassion, safety, trust, adventure, self-compassion, forgiveness, and relationships. If the heart chakra becomes unbalanced, you may feel detached from the world around you.
Each breath we take that connects us to our physical and spiritual world is enveloped by the heart chakra, and if unbalanced or blocked can lead to a disconnection from the people we love, love for ourselves, and love for the earth.
Problems in relationships heighten and we tend to lose hope. We lose sight of beauty, love, empathy, and compassion. Common psychological symptoms of an unbalanced heart chakra: apathetic, faithlessness, unforgiving, hopelessness, distrustful, uncommitted, and detached.
Common physical symptoms of an unbalanced heart chakra: pneumonia, asthma, breast problems, respiratory problems, upper-back pain, shoulder and upper-arm pain, and premature aging.
Healing the Heart Chakra
Balancing and opening the heart chakra enhances the love for self and others. It allows you to feel compassion, empathy, and forgiveness for others, and reconnects you to the loving world around you. You are able to connect with the child-like world vision of beauty you were born with, generating adventure and zest for life. Peace and harmony flourish in relationships with others and self.
