Heart Chakra is Responsible For

The Heart Chakra is responsible for a sense of giving and receiving. It is the first chakra that is no longer only about you, but also is about world outside your personal bubble. An underactive heart chakra makes one closed to giving and receiving. This person will bottle up their emotions and either explode or wither away from a sense of scarcity. An overactive heart chakra leads to unnecessary sacrificial behavior. Too much receiving includes over empathizing with others and too much giving results in martyr-like behavior. The disease of an unbalanced heart chakra leads one to believe their actions are of love and compassion when in reality they are pushing others away from them.

How To Balance the Heart Chakra

Express and feel gratitude, openly give and receive, look through the perspectives of others, listen to your heart, embrace all aspects of yourself, nurture yourself and others.

Step 1. Aromatherapy

If your heart feels heavy, you can use either one of these essential oils during aromatherapy: lavender, sandalwood, rosemary, neroli, rose, jasmine, chamomile, marjoram, and ylang-ylang. Floral tones work best for individuals looking to release the heart chakra.

Step 2. Tailored Diets

The color of this chakra is green. Hence all green foods work rather well with people looking to unblock the heart chakra. Try including kale, lettuce, spinach, broccoli, chard and other green vegetables in your diet. Eat up those veggies now, come on! Use them as early morning smoothies or as salads for lunch; they’re as healthy as they can be.

Step 3. Physical Activity

Ideally, Bikram yoga works best for the heart chakra, the 26-pose routine devised in the 1970s. Involve the core and twist around to the fullest. The eagle pose, locust pose, bow pose, and head-to-knee poses are particularly beneficial. Get movin' now! If you feel more comfortable dancing, you need to get your heart rate up and try out steps that challenge your core.

Step 4. Mental Visualizations

Imagine a bright green light entering your heart. Now imagine it spreading out to all parts of your body. Visualize this energy within you and you’ll feel your heart becoming lighter. Green is the color of this chakra and all kinds of greens work best for balancing the heart chakra.


Step 5. Healing Stones

As far as the healing stones are concerned, the heart chakra resonates with pink as well as green colored stones. The rose quartz, jade, green calcite, green tourmaline, and green aventurine are known to help bring emotional stability and open the heart to greater possibilities.
