The heart chakra represents unconditional love, compassion and forgiveness.
Opening the heart chakra is one of the most important pieces of chakra work you can do.
My guess is that you are yearning for more love in your life, is that right? Then begin by BEING more loving. Be the change you wish to see. Love and compassion are the keys to healing you heart.
You are here in physical form to express great love.
If your heart chakra is out of balance, you may be having trouble with relationships, expressing your love, self doubt, jealousy.
This is your body in it's infinite wisdom screaming at you for balance in your heart chakra. Our bodies will always tell the story which is why it's so important not to cover up signals from our bodies with pharmaceuticals or other substances.
Begin by loving yourself beautiful goddess! No matter where you are in your life, what state your body is in, it is time for you to remember your greatness and power to heal. Start by taking better care of your body -go for a walk, do some stretching, yoga, make a fruit and veggie smoothie, sing, dance..... That's LOVE.
My favorite, simple heart chakra meditation is:
Sit comfortably in a chair or cross legged on the floor or even better, out in nature! Place your right hand in the middle of your chest, left hand on your belly, just below your navel and take a deep, slow grounding breath.
Next, say out loud or to yourself (whichever feels right for you):
I AM HERE, HERE IN MY BODY. I AM HERE, AND ALL IS WELL.
Repeat as many times as you wish. You can visualize the colour of the heart chakra, green, as glowing light beneath your hand, feel your heart beating , pumping life force and nourishment through your body. You may feel warmth or tingling as you place awareness on your heart chakra.
Let this be the juicy beginning in opening the heart chakra my dear. Thank you for stopping by. It is my deepest wish that you remember your greatness sister.
