So for the past 3 posts I’ve been talking about the first 3 Chakras. To backpedal and learn a little bit about the background you can check out the past three chakra posts; The Root, The Saccral and The Solar Plexus. Today we’re getting down to the heart of the matter, as Don Henly says, and taking a look at the fourth chakra, The Heart or Anahata as it’s called in Sanskrit meaning “sound vibration of the heart”
Anahata or The Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breast bone. The heart chakra is centered around complex emotions and relationships with others. Physically Anahata governs circulation and is associated with the heart, thymus gland, lower lung. Emotionally Anahata governs unconditional love for oneself and others. Mentally the fourth chakra governs passion, and spirituality. A balanced heart chakra is expressed in self acceptance, the acceptance of others and the ability to follow your own direction in life.
The Color of Your Heart (Chakra)
The color associated with the heart chakra is Green. Green symbolizes harmony, creativity, health, abundance and nature. It is the combining of yellow (soul) and blue (spirit). Green, nature’s color, offers new energy and revitalizes tired nerves.
All the green stones – emerald, green tourmaline, malachite, jade, chrysoprase, dipotase, peridot, aventurine, moss agate, green jasper – are used with the heart chakra. Though green is the primary color used with the heart chakra, it’s also said that pink stones (such as rose quartz or rhodonite) can be used if more softness, affection and love seem to be needed in working with the heart chakra.
Sending you so much love and peace.
I can see you GETTIN’ FIERCE!
