The fourth chakra is known as the Heart Chakra. There are 3 chakras below the heart and 3 above. Connecting them all in the middle is the heart chakra.
This chakra is the meeting point of the upper spiritual worlds and the base physical world. It is located in the centre of the chest and physically it connects to the heart, lungs, thymus and cardiac plexus.
It’s colour is green and as with the abundance of nature’s green offerings, it is filled with our most powerfully abundant divine essence, our love.
Is my Heart Chakra balanced
An open heart chakra is literally the biggest gift you can gift yourself. The way you interpret the world around you is filtered through your heart chakra. When it is open and balanced you will feel love for those around you and also have an easy ability to have compassion for others. From this place you allow people to express themselves as they are, and accept people as they are without judgement or expectation.
Those around you will feel that you love and accept them and they will respond beautifully to your energy. When your heart is open you are so peaceful and harmonious to be around. You project love all around you and everyone feels great in your company.
If your heart chakra is blocked this shows up in an inability to forgive others, and a disconnection to those around you. You may feel inhibited in old patterns and distrusting of other people and life. It may feel as if it is unsafe to let go and love.
Your heart chakra sends signals to your brain about whether you are in a state of fight or flight, based on your emotional state, and your brain then sends signals to the rest of your body. Balancing this chakra is essential for great health.
Love is the highest frequency in the Universe. Freeing this energy within you will transform every area of your life and your health.

Meditate on the colour green
The fastest way to understand how abundantly we have love flowing through every cell in our body is to focus on nature. Nature has the colour green abundantly flowing throughout the entire planet. Nature sustains us and contains the essence of love. Visualise the colour green filling your heart centre and extending outwards throughout your energy field. Notice how much green there is around you. The colour green has immense healing properties. Wear a green item of clothing and feel the essence of the colour, colouring your energy field. Notice how your heart softens as you do this.
Be mindful of love in your life
Take out your favourite pen and write a list of all the people who have ever shown you love in your life. Add to that list by writing a list of the most powerful ways the Universe has shown you that you are loved. Counting our blessings in life highlights to us how loved we are. It opens our heart as we become mindful with our divine gifts. The more we notice this love, the more we feel loving to others and want to share this part of ourselves. Doing this heals and balances our heart chakra as we change our life view, moving from a place of self protection to a place of feeling loved and secure. When we feel loved, safe and secure we are able to share this freely with others. Compassion naturally arises and we feel joyous in our own body.

Forgiveness sets our spirit free. It frees up so much energy that physical healing takes place effortlessly. As the heart chakra heals, the body heals with it. Ask the Universe to assist you in being able to forgive others. Ask the Universe to forgive you, ask yourself for self forgiveness and connect with anyone you feel anger towards. Meditate on asking their higher self to communicate with your higher self, so that love, forgiveness and compassion can happen.
Swap metaphysical seats and take a few moments to view the world from their perspective. Ask your higher self to understand the other person’s challenges and to have compassion for them.
Better still call someone today who you would like to restore a connection with and tell them that. Bringing more love into our lives is the key and answer to happiness, inner peace and all states of health.
