Fourth Chakra- Anahata (Heart Center)
The 4th chakra lies between the shoulder blades slightly higher than the physical heart.
The focus of the heart center is non other than love and balance. It is from within the heart center that the Lord of Love shines forth in all of us. The heart center plays an important role in the balancing of the chakra system. In order to achieve a proper balance and flow of energy through the chakras, that energy must be integrated across the heart center. The blending of the higher and lower centers, (though each equally important) must be acheived across the heart center.
One means of achieving balance across the charka system is to take an inventory of what centers are out of balance. See to it that as you work on balancing each of those centers that you even out the balancing across the heart center. If weeek 1 you work on your 1st Chakra, and your 7th Chakra is out of balance as well, then try working on your 7th Chakra the next week. As you work with these energy centers you will find that the blockages move as your life moves. I speak only from my own personal experience in working with these centers over the past couple of years, (in this life time.)
When a person is blocked in the Heart Center it may manifest as a lack of abilty to give freely, or a lack of resources. The Heart Center tends to be an area that humanity requires the most healing in, who hasn’t been hurt by a loving relationship in the past. An ironic twist is that the Heart Center is also the primary center from which healing flows.
The color of the fourth chakra, is green. Green the color of abundance and good fortune. Pink is another potential color for this center, which represents a balancing of the White Light from above with the Red of the 1st Chakra.
Benefits of a Balanced Fourth Chakra
- Ability to give freely to others
- Healing for ones self and others
- Integration of the higher and lower energy centers
Meditation from the Heart Center is an excellent means of polling our higher selves for what is right. If you hear your heart speak it to you then follow it. I have been working on allowing my heart to guide me for sometime, which is challenging considering my head likes to think it controls things The path may not be the one most easily taken, but listening to and operating from the heart center will help you to achieve your purpose.
The Heart Center represents Love. What a fantastic quailty to work on balancing
