Having a balanced heart chakra is essential for leading a loving and compassionate life. Contrary to popular opinion, humans are generally good-natured and caring. Unfortunately, many of us have lost our ways in an unnecessarily complicated world. Here are some tips to slow down and reconnect with your heart!
What is the Heart Chakra?
Before we can explain how to heal the heart chakra, we need to understand what it is! Your heart chakra is an energy center located along your spine in the center of your chest! It is responsible for love, compassion, empathy, and fostering a sense of community! Additionally, it also impacts your heart, lungs, and circulatory system!
Signs of a balanced Heart Chakra?
The easiest way to tell if you have a balanced heart chakra is to look at your view of yourself and others. When you have a balanced heart chakra, you will generally be radiating love, kindness, and understanding! Connections with others will come naturally, and you will have empathy towards the human condition. In short, you will be unity minded and have enough understanding to practice forgiveness.
What can you do if your heart chakra is blocked?
None of us will always embody the traits of balanced heart chakra; we’re human. However, when you lack empathy and understanding more than you show it, it’s safe to say your heart chakra is blocked. When this happens, it’s time to book an appointment with a reiki healer, use some healing crystals, or look for ways that are more suited to your lifestyle!
How your habits impact your chakras
Your life is the sum of your repeated thoughts and actions. You may be shocked by how much you’re limiting yourself when investigating some of your behavioral and thought patterns. Thankfully, once you get over this initial jolt of self-awareness, you’ll find how simple it is to make positive changes in your life!
