All About The HEART Chakra- Your LOVE Center
The Heart Chakra
- Location: Center Of Chest Above the Heart
- Main Focus: Love, Joy, Inner Peace
- Main Color: Green
The Heart Chakra is a bit more straightforward- it is truly our main LOVE center! The chakra itself is in the middle of the chest and slightly above where the heart would be. Both green and pink are associated with this chakra.
When the heart chakra is open and balanced, we give and receive love easily. We are happy, vibrant, and filled with joy. We are generous in many ways and we find it easy to connect with others.
The heart chakra is the middle chakra, and is the bridge between our lower and upper chakras. All is connected energetically as it is physically.
Common symptoms of an imbalanced heart chakra:
- issues with commitment or just constant relationship issues
- if you’ve recently been heartbroken
- if you are grieving
- if you are someone that is constantly craving love and attention (to the point of suffocation and co-dependency)
- if you struggle with self love
- issues with loneliness (you are anti-social and/or you cannot be alone)
- bitterness or resentment towards others
- If you have dealt with any childhood trauma there is a very big chance that you have an imbalance in the heart chakra
- poor boundaries in all areas of your life
- physical symptoms include heart, lung, and blood pressure issues, upper back or shoulder pain, and asthma
