“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.” Buddha
The fourth chakra, also referred to as the “heart” chakra, is located in the center of the chest. The heart chakra is the seat of compassion,oneness and of being connected. This is so important for those of us who are healers (yes, this means you, too!). Through the heart, we find our commonality with others, our true oneness with all things, and our ability to connect and aid in healing. It is truly the chakra where all healing comes from.
Equally important is our ability to have this love and compassion for our
own selves. Just as being able to give unconditionally cannot exist
without our ability to receive unconditionally, we must learn to care for
ourselves in order to give to others. We must learn to fill ourselves
up in order to have enough energy to give to others. Through
meditation, we can learn to create a continuous flow of energy through
the chakra, bringing about the balance that we need and healing our own
Having a blocked fourth chakra can result in many disturbances and
imbalances. We may give and give to others, but become very angry when
no one appears to be giving to us, resulting in resentment. We might
hold onto another person’s pain and suffering in our hearts, resulting
in both of us staying stuck. We may rush to please another
person, especially if they imply that we are not giving enough. In
other words, our ability to give and receive becomes unbalanced.
Examining our heart relationships can be very powerful. And there in
nothing wrong in changing a relationship that isn’t working. If we are
brave enough, this can result in tremendous healing for both parties.
Open your heart, knowing that you are well protected and that energy can
flow evenly both ways!
