The heart chakra is the center of love, unity, and balance. When this energy center is balanced, you’ll experience feelings of compassion, generosity, and kindness toward yourself and others.
When the heart chakra is imbalanced, you may experience feelings of loneliness, resentment, fear, and isolation. This is due to an accumulation of negative emotions resulting from past traumas or unresolved issues.
A blocked fourth chakra can also cause physical ailments or disease that directly affect the heart, lungs, chest, arms, and hands. Issues that can occur include poor circulation, high or low blood pressure, and other heart or lung conditions.
In addition to regular yoga poses, practicing heart chakra meditation can help you release blockages and get in touch with your heart. This healing technique is easy to practice and can be used as a part of your daily spiritual practice.
1. Breathing Meditation for the Heart Chakra
Start this heart chakra healing meditation by breathing deeply and slowly, inhaling first into your belly then into your chest. Repeat this for three to five breaths.
2. Green Light Energy Visualization
Imagine the heart of your chest as warm and radiant, full of emerald green light. This energy flows out of the heart into the arms, hands, and out into the world around you.
3. Green Foods
Eat foods that are rich in nutrients and antioxidants to support your heart chakra. Leafy greens, broccoli, cucumbers, and green apples are great choices.
