Anahata aka THE Heart Chakra

Hey yogis I’m glad to be back this week to share my wisdom on clearing your heart chakra also known as anahata in Sandskrit. The heart chakra is the fourth chakra in the seven chakra sequence. Its element is air so driving with your windows down or going out to a park on a windy day will help you strengthen this chakra.

The color of the heart chakra is green which is strange to me because you would think it would be red. Though green symbolizes harmony, creativity, health and abundance of nature. We get the green color for the heart because it combines the yellow soul the blue spirit. Green is nature’s color which offers us new energy and revitalizes tired nerves.

Now lets talk about the symptoms to an overactive, under-active and unbalance heart chakra.

Under-active

  • Anti-social
  • Withdrawn
  • Critical
  • Isolated/lonely
  • Fear of Intimacy

Overactive

  • Co-dependent
  • Poor Boundaries
  • Demanding
  • Clingy
  • Overly Jealous

Unbalanced

  • Heart and Lung disorders
  • Circulation Issues
  • Chest Pain
  • Breast Problems

When this chakra is balanced you should feel…

  • Compassionate
  • Loving
  • Empathetic
  • Peaceful and Balanced

However this chakra has gotten unbalanced whether it was a spouse abandonment or being rejected/betrayed by someone close to you we can get this chakra back to its correct energy state by grounding work, vigorous exercise and strengthen will.

Crystals to use to heal will be…

  • Malachite
  • Jade
  • Green Tourmaline
  • Emerald
  • Peridot

For food healing you need to eat green foods like broccoli, spinach, kale, zucchini, green apples and avocados! So I found on Pinterest a BOMB spinach pineapple mango smoothie. Go check it out on the link below.
