Heart Chakra Information



The Heart Chakra is the fourth chakra. Energetically the heart chakra vibrates to the color green. Some people do see the heart chakra as pink also.

SANSKRIT NAME: Anahata (unstruck)

LOCATION: The heart chakra is in the middle of your chest between your breast.

PHYSICALLY: This chakra governs your real heart and your compassion for others. The heart chakra also governs the lungs, immune system, thymus gland
and lymph glands. This is the center of how you connect with humanity. The heart chakra activates during the ages 22 through 28. Whatever happens from ages 22 to 28 years of age affects the heart chakra. If you have had some trauma in that time period and find yourself to be unbalanced it is probable that it is a heart chakra issue.

BALANCED ENERGY: A balanced heart chakra person will feel compassion for others, people, animals, plants and humanity. A balanced heart chakra does not mind having time alone and will wait for the right relationship to come to them. They are not rushed into being in a relationship for the sake of doing so.

A balanced heart chakra person is outgoing empathetic and kind.

UNBALANCED ENERGY: An over active heart chakra person will be excessive emotionally, one who uses the word love as a weapon, IE, “You don’t love me.” or “You won’t do this if you love me.” an over active heart chakra person can be manipulative, demanding, overly critical or melodramatic. An under active heart chakra person may feel unloved, unworthy, not good enough, feel sorry for themselves, terrified of rejection or afraid to let go and be free of things/people who no longer serve their highest good.

GEMSTONES: Some gemstones for the heart chakra are, green aventurine, rose quartz, green and pink jade, malachite, emerald, kunzite, rhodochrocite, rhodonite.

HOW TO BALANCE: You can balance your heart chakra by listening to soothing music or sounds. You can pamper yourself in some way like taking a nice warm bath with bath salts. You can freely give yourself to others without expecting something in return. You can give yourself or someone else a reiki treatment.
