The chakras are the energy center of your body. There are seven main chakras that go from the top of your head to your feet.
If you have never taken time to think about energy in the body or how energy shows itself then you might not know how to understand energy in a way that you can see it and feel it. This is where the chakras play a role.
One of the chakras is the heart chakra and this is a thing you can relate to. Having your heart broken or getting excited about falling in love or even learning to have unconditional love is all part of the heart chakra.
The energy in the heart chakra allows you to feel compassion for others and ultimately to love others. The heart chakra, also called the Anahata Chakra, helps you to find joy and to forgive others and to know and understand the feelings other people have.
You can feel your emotions and direct your life towards others. This can help you also to learn to accept who you are.
When you have a heart chakra that is blocked, it can bring about bouts of anger and hate. It can make it where you have a hard time forgiving or connecting with other people.
Showing kindness to others will become hard and you will feel hateful when you see people, even ones you love.
If your heart chakra is overactive then you might not be able to say no to others. This can mean you are too giving or too forgiving and you are allowing people to use you and not setting boundaries.
Emotional trauma is something that can cause your heart chakra to be unbalanced. If you are hurt by someone you love or if people are not showing love to you, it can cause you to have blockages in the heart chakra.
Being emotionally, physically, or sexually abused can also cause you to have conflicts and unforgiveness and can make it where you have a hard time loving and forgiving people.
Trauma can make you feel lonely and isolated and can make you feel that you are out of balance in all of your relationships.
If you want to heal, you need to go through a process but even the process is easy and can change your life and help you to be more open.
There are ways that you can heal your heart chakra and you can give your heart the care and love that it needs.
The heart chakra is associated with green. If you want to open up your heart chakra, wear something green. This can help you to have peace and to support others.
Pick a plant that has green leaves and keep it. Put it outside and go out and water it and look at it. Put it on your porch and you can touch it and talk to it.
You can even buy a plant that goes in your house such as a peace Lily which has green leaves and sometimes a flower here and there that adds extra color to your home. Take time each day to talk, care and admire our plants.
Find something you love to do and do it. Find new hobbies that make you feel excited and at peace. You can do things that are creative such as paint or write. Write down your feelings or write poetry about what you feel.
Do something that makes you feel creative. Doing creative things can help you to share your emotions and take away your anger and your pain. This is a great way to let go of grief.
Talk to Someone
Most people have people in their lives that support them and care for them. This can be a friend, co-worker, teacher, or a family member.
This can be someone that you love, and you look up to. Maybe you have someone that is happy and that you have unconditional love for.
In this world that is negative, this can be your person that sets a model to tell you things and to make you feel at peace.
Talk to this person and let them help you through your pain and your heartbreak. Let them show you love. Be kind with yourself and patient and talking to someone can help you to feel that way.
In being kind to yourself you will be more positive, and your energy can flow through your heart chakra without being blocked.
