The Fourth Chakra energy center, also known as the heart chakra is found right in the middle of your chest.
It governs love, forgiveness, and is the essence of integration of the spiritual and the physical. The heart chakra is also known as the anahata chakra and represented by the color green.
This is the fourth in a series of posts regarding the energy centers of the body. You can also read my other posts about the First, Second, Third, Fifth, and Sixth chakras.
Imagine a beautiful emerald stone, about the size of a baseball, glowing and radiating warmth and love to everyone that came in contact with it. That is what a balanced fourth chakra radiates and outwardly beams; love and warmth and the giving of unconditional love. It is all about loving and caring emotions and integrating our spiritual bodies with our physical bodies. You are able to give and receive love in equal proportions.
Balancing the Heart Chakra
If your energy center of training for this lifetime is the heart chakra, look to emotional healing playing a big part in releasing some of the old stored gunk.
An overactive heart chakra will show as thinking too much with your heart, and not backing up decisions with logic or reason. You may be a “people pleaser” and go overboard trying to please and do things for others with no regard for recharging your own batteries.
An under-active heart chakra appears as feeling unloved or unworthy of love. Other symptoms include fear of rejection or a fear of letting go. Your wounded “inner child” also resides here. Emotions associated with an unbalanced fourth chakra include envy, rejection, and abandonment.
Green and the Fourth Chakra
The 4th chakra connects to the color green. It can also show for some as a beautiful green orb surrounded by a soft pink color. It is the color of healing, thus how we speak of healing a broken heart.
Eating and drinking green foods can help balance the heart chakra. Try spinach, kale, leafy greens, and green tea. Also using green herbs such as thyme, rosemary, basil, and cilantro in cooking can lend balance.
Essential Oils for the Fourth Chakra
Essential oils used to balance the heart chakra include eucalyptus, pine, tea tree, spearmint, cedarwood, rose, frankincense, bergmot, lavender, and sandalwood.
4th Chakra Balancing Gemstones and Crystals
Find these gemstones at a local shop and see which one calls to you. Green aventurine, green and pink tourmaline, emerald, jade, malachite, rose quartz, or peridot. Carry them in your pocket or use in a necklace.
The Energetic Reason You’re Not Where You Want To Be
Everything is connected. That’s why, when one area of your life is unbalanced – say, stress from working long hours trying to get ahead – everything else seems so much harder.
This is especially true when it comes to abundance. When you’re constantly worried about paying the bills or going to a job you hate every day, everything else gets put on the back burner.
Suddenly, you have no room to develop or grow. That’s what is called an ‘Abundance Block’.
They can be tricky to uncover on your own, which is why I’m so excited to introduce Mindvalley’s free ‘Unblock Your Abundance’ Masterclass featuring the incredible Christie Marie Sheldon.
And you’re cordially invited >>
If you haven’t heard of Christie before, she’s a remarkable woman with a special gift… The ability to connect with other people so that they start to magnetically attract success and abundance on autopilot.
Not only will you get to learn what Christie’s methods are all about, but you’ll also get to experience a 20-minute Energy Clearing session guided by Christie that will permanently erase one of the biggest ‘Abundance Blocks’ affecting most people today.
