Centre of the chest. (Green)
Our ability to love.
Emotional Issues: Love, joy, and inner peace.
The heart chakra, which is also known as Anahata in Sanskrit, colours your life with beauty, love, and compassion. Motivated by the principles of integration and transformation, the heart chakra bridges earthly and spiritual aspirations. The main meanings and functions that are associated with the heart chakra involve your love for yourself and for others. This is the chakra that governs how you relate to people and how you handle relationships.
The heart chakra gives empathy and compassion, and it’s responsible for your ability to forgive and accept. It’s also the chakra involved in changes and transformations.
With the heart chakra, you are able to grieve properly and attain peace and tranquillity. You are able to remain compassionate and achieve complete discernment. It’s the centre of your awareness and the integration of your insights. When the heart chakra is free and unblocked, you will feel deeply connected, and you will experience a harmonious exchange of energies with all that’s around you. You will have a better appreciation of beauty, wonder, and magic. However, when there’s something blocking your heart chakra, you will experience difficulties in how you relate to other people. You will experience excessive jealousy and co-dependency. You will also become withdrawn and closed off.
Green is the energy colour of transformation and love. It lets you transform your ego and the needs of your lower chakras and allow them to open up to love. Green colour chakra fills you with inspiration to become more loving and compassionate. It’s the colour of balance, life, and growth. It is through balance that you discover the centre from which you can love, build healthy and nurturing relationships, and give and accept love. The energy of the green colour chakra is calming and soothing, like a soft blanket of grass under your feet. It’s the colour of nature, the trees, and the grass. People with strong green chakra energy stand tall and give out energies of openness.
Green colour chakra brings the energies of freedom and development. It’s the building block of your self-acceptance and your acceptance of others. On an emotional level, green is an expansive colour. The gift of this colour is that you radiate love and peace to let others know that they are accepted for who they are.
