7 Facts About the Heart Chakra and How to Tune it

Posted on March 15, 2017

3) What is the Normal Function of the Heart Chakra?

The heart chakra is the energy center that has to do with compassion and understanding. It′s where forgiveness is found and kindness rules. It′s all about love, but not the romantic attraction that sometimes arises from ego. It is the unconditional love that the universe has for all its children.

It′s where the physical and the spiritual meet, where you make choices based not just on your gut feelings or instincts, but where intuition takes you to a place of appreciation for all sides of the situation. It′s here that body, mind, and spirit all connect.

When this area is balanced, you′re at peace with your life and your heart is filled with joy. You easily take responsibility for yourself and your actions. You see the blessings in your life, and you appreciate what you have. There is neither longing nor sadness over what you don′t have.

Overall, you′re content and your relationships are healthy, never overbearing or uncomfortable. Your heart chakra lets you feel love You won′t be hardened, angry, or feel bitter against people and the world when it′s open, aligned, and healthy. You will feel love and generosity toward the world.

4) What Happens When the Heart Chakra is Overactive?

You may come across as bossy or uppity when this area needs a tuneup. You feel stressed, and you hold onto grudges long after it was time for forgiveness. You find reasons to feel guilty and to dwell on the past. You night be intolerant of other people′s opinions and ideas. You get bossy and feel that you have to control relationships. You may also have a selfish streak, and think that life owes you something.

Green and pink will help you to restore harmony to an overactive heart chakra. Think soothing shades, the brightgreens won;t work as well as the more subtle tones. Your green reiki stone will work, as will the green on your chakra pendulum.

Wearing yellow or green clothing, particularly shirts and blouses or other garments that cover your upper chest, also support heart chakra health. Pink or green jewelry, pinned over the heart, is beneficial, as is having a nice relaxing bath or shower with your favorite pink or green bath products.
