What is a chakra? The word chakra comes from Sanskrit meaning : “spinning wheel”. In a sense it explains the meaning of the role of the chakras - rotating energy centers of incoming and outgoing energy. They continually receive and transmit energy and other information from the different parts of your body.
During February, the month of love, we focus on our hearts, love and feelings of caring and warmth. Why not learn how to open our heart chakras and bring ourselves into harmony?
The Heart Chakra sits between the breasts. It is the center of your enlightened consciousness and connects yourself to all of the gateways of your other energy bodies (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies). By opening the heart chakra you connect more fully with your divine essence and hold your heart open to all that is.
It is through your heart chakra that you may connect with the heart of your soul and have a more expansive and fulfilling relationship with yourself and others. When open and activated, the heart chakra is the chalice of your joy. You see and hear people through the loving nature of your heart gateway. When your heart chakra is closed you will hear others through judgement and fear.
It is your heart chakra that assists you to open to receive unconditional love and share that with others as well as the rest of your physical body and other chakras. When your heart chakra is closed or out of balance you might experience heart ailments, breathing issues, blood pressure issues, fear, inability to love or unable to love nourish and support the self.
When this chakra is balanced you can experience peace, harmony and love.
Try the following activities daily and keep your heart open to love!
