Heart Chakra – Where is it and what does it relate to

Heart Chakra Symbol
Heart Chakra Symbol

Chakras exist on all levels of the human energy field, some as connections between the levels. If functioning well they act as anchors between these levels.
Light energy and love is always trying to get through the vortices.
When we get inspiration this is energy moving.
We should not let emotions, feelings within get suppressed. We should process these feelings and by feeling them, understand and let go.

Common problems are the chakras’ being blocked, excessive (over active) and deficient (under active).
Energy Healing can balance your chakras by channelling colour, light and love to them and restructuring if necessary.   If you would like to have a chakra balancing session  contact me

Each chakra has a different psychological aspect I will cover the Heart (Anahata) chakra located in the centre of the chest, heart, cardiac plexus here:-

The heart chakra spins at a medium fast speed, and is the beginning of the upper chakras and the colour is grass green. It is related to your relationships, love, people attachments and forgiveness or un-forgiveness. Your negative thoughts and fears around giving and receiving love and relationship attachments will unbalance or block this chakra

    It is clear to me that I have been blessed and cursed with a LOVE flowing from my heart chakra all my life (70 years old). Today and many times in the past because of broken relationship issues, rejection of my loving spirit, and self rejection its seems that this chakra shuts down as I wallow in isolation and self pity. It’s a fear of being me, of not being accepted for who I am, of a spiritual nature that cannot get free for long and mature.

    There was a time about ten years ago when a lady prayed for me with her hand over my heart and as she prayed something came out of me from the heart area and we both were amazed and questioned “what could that be?” To this day I do not know and surely would like an answer if someone has experience in this. Thanks.

  9. Hello Michael,
    As we go through life, we learn to supress emotions to hide our pain so we don’t have to feel it. This may cause a blockage in our energy flow. Supressed emotions can unbalance our chakras, old beliefs passed down during childhood can create mental thoughts, so we experience fear, rejection etc.
    When you work with the chakras to balance and open them, energy will then flow.
    As I wasn’t present when you experienced this movement around your heart chakra, I cannot say for sure what left your body. If your heart chakra had been closed, the most common experience would have been a release of energy, which may have been related to a supressed emotion.
    Hope this helps clarify what happened
