Description: Heart (Anahata) Chakra makes you friendly and compassionate and helps in fostering harmonious relationships. If underactive, you will be cold and distant and if overactive, you will be overbearing in the matter of love. The spiritual lessons Heart (Anahata) Chakra wants to teach us are about compassion, forgiveness, trust and unconditional love. Heart (Anahata) Chakra that is too open will lead a person into being too giving; generous to a fault. If it is too closed, it may lead a person into lacking compassion and empathy. One needs to strike the perfect balance between self-love and the love for others.

Is Your Heart (Anahata) Chakra Healthy or Blocked?

Your Heart (Anahata) Chakra governs life lessons involving love and compassion, self-confidence and self-acceptance, inspiration, hope, generosity, and on the flip side, feelings of despair, hate, envy, fear, jealousy, and anger. Information stored in the Heart (Anahata) Chakra includes the connections or "heart strings" to those we love. An imbalance in the Heart (Anahata) Chakra may be felt as a lack of self-discipline, difficulty in relationships, attempts to live vicariously through others, and depending on someone else for your happiness.

When Energy Is Not Flowing Freely In Heart (Anahata) Chakra, some Of The Following Physical Symptoms Arise:

Balanced Heart (Anahata) Chakra

A balanced Heart (Anahata) Chakra person is one capable of true compassion and unconditional love. There is a healthy level of self-acceptance and compassion for oneself as well as for others. This person also desires a spiritual experience in lovemaking. They display an altruistic and empathetic nature and generally have an excellent immune system.

A person with a healthy and balanced Heart (Anahata) Chakra demonstrates true extensive compassion for self and others. They are exceptional friends who exhibit unconditional love. The physical manifestation of a healthy Anahata Chakra is a good immune system. On the other hand an imbalanced chakra causes, fear, hatred, expectations and depression. It also leads to mistrust and painful relations.

Overactive Heart (Anahata) Chakra

When the Heart (Anahata) Chakra spins too fast, or is too open, the effects are that of distorted form of loving relationships, i.e. conditional love or possessiveness. It might also manifest in manipulative behaviour such as emotional withholding to "punish" or being overly dramatic in relationships. We will also find co -dependency, jealousy and needy cravings for connection, inability to establish healthy boundaries or failing to see when a relationship is abusive.

Underactive Heart (Anahata) Chakra

The blocked heart chakra prevents love from being allowed in, which results in the lack of self-love, and feelings of unworthiness and self-pity. Out of fear of rejection, comes attitudes of loving too much, or unrealistic expectations like the knight in shining armour etc. We often find attitudes of self-righteousness, blaming the other person, judgmental, and dwelling on the failures of past relationships. Emotional states include being unforgiving, still being stuck in anger at past betrayal, fear of intimacy, loneliness, depression and grief.

Illnesses associated with the Heart (Anahata) Chakra:

Physical manifestations of imbalanced Heart (Anahata) Chakra include all the heart conditions such as congestive heart failure, palpitations, high blood pressure etc. The same applies to any condition of the lungs such as bronchial pneumonia, tuberculosis, asthma, lung cancer and breast cancer as well as allergies and chest congestion, blood circulation problems, immune system deficiency or tension between the shoulder blades.

Energetic Healing of the Heart (Anahata) Chakra

The main issues in healing the Heart (Anahata) Chakra are finding self-acceptance and the ability to forgive. Working on healing relationship cords as well as inner child healings and some explorations into past lives helps to release much of the astral debris that is clogging up the heart chakra. The client can also support this healing process by practicing meditation and generosity and opening up to the possibility of finding forgiveness for themselves as well as for others.

If you know you could definitely love yourself a little more and suddenly are realizing that you are really tired of criticizing yourself or attracting others who do, then head straight to your green heart chakra. Your green heart chakra is locating in the center of your chest, and it is here that we hold our feelings of self-love and self-acceptance. How we feel about ourselves influences everything from the way we talk to ourselves to the kind of people and experiences we attract into our life. If you feel loved (by loving yourself), you will tend to attract people who truly love you via wonderful friendships, healthy partnerships and generous, supportive work circles. When we don't feel loved (because we don't love ourselves), we experience a sense of real disharmony, finding ourselves in situations with others that make us feel sad, angry or unappreciated. We attract people who mirror our own emotionally and mentally negative inner environment.

What most people tend to do when they feel unloved is try and get that love outside themselves, thinking something has to happen before they can have the inner joy and harmony they are looking for example "I will feel loved and whole when I find my soul mate/when my partner changes", "I will be happy with myself when I lose this weight". However this is going about it in completely the wrong way because your energy creates your reality. Your ideal partner will show up in front of you when you feel loved (because you love yourself), and when you know that you are whole just as you are. Your weight will drop off when you decide to be happy with yourself (because you love yourself and you know that feeling happy feels better to your soul than talking your way into feeling bad about yourself).

Heart (Anahata) Chakra And Relationships

Some crave love while others consciously try and stop love from entering their lives. When our heart has been wounded we have a tendency to put up a wall around it, thinking 'if I don't let love in, then it can't hurt me'. However, it was never love that hurt you. It was the experience of being abandoned, betrayed or abused. Putting up a wall ironically often serves to attract that kind of experience again, acting like a magnet for those who don't want a genuine heart connection. All of us need a heart -to-heart connection to blossom.

Other times we have a wall because we don't want others to see the real us, fearing that if they see who we really are they will run away, so convinced are we of our defectiveness!! True intimacy = Into Me See. When you learn to love and accept yourself just as you are, you will feel how sad it is to keep hiding your beautiful light from the world, and you will become less afraid (and one day not afraid at all) to show your Self to express and build great relationships.

Meditation Technique By Neeta Singhal

Neeta Singhal has developed a unique meditation technique which is called "Release meditation" based on Neti Neti Yog by Jagatguru Shri Adi Shankaracharya. In this technique, the fears are brought to surface and are then released completely from all aspects of life into a rotating vortex which is a black hole that destroys everything. "Facing a fear is bringing it into light and that enables us to release the fear", she says. This meditation style also involves playing the Gayatri mantra or resonance music in the background.
