The heart chakra is in the middle of the chest, right by the heart. It′s also in the middle chakra. It′s where the three lower chakras (solar plexus, sacral, and root) meet the three higher chakras (throat, third-eye, and crown). It resonates with the musical note of F.
The heart chakra influences so many areas of your life. Of course, being the heart center, it has to do with love, but this is more of the universal love, rather than a focus on romantic love that deals with partnerships and intimacy. It′s here you develop kindness and forgiveness.
It′s here you make peace with the past and move forward with a sense of calm determination. This area also rules your heart and your respiratory systems. It cannot be stressed enough that, should you feel any physical discomfort or illness, you must see your healthcare provider. The heart is too important to be trifled with.
Keep in mind that the chakras are energy centers, and not physical areas of your body. Each of these areas vibrates to a specific level, which is what gives them their colors and their music notes. The heart chakra resonates with all shades of green. Green helps you to unwind so that it′s easier for you to develop your understanding and empathy. Malachite and jasper are excellent heart chakra crystals.
You can do a lot to align this area by using green colors. Green crystals, green jewelry, even green clothing will be advantageous. Suitable stones are jade, malachite, and aventurine, but there are some pink stones like rose quartz and rhodochrosite which are suitable. If you use reiki healing stones, choose the green one.
Pink is also accepted as a heart chakra color. Pink is considered to be the color of love, even though it′s only a secondary heart chakra color. Pink brings you into contact with your true feelings and helps you to release pain and past heartache.
If you have a chakra pendulum and want to use it for healing, focus on the green color band. Envision the harmonious vibrations flowing through your pendulum and into your heart chakra. You′ll get the most benefit if you do this every day until you start to feel better.
