What does the heart chakra symbolize?
This chakra is all about showing love and compassion not only for yourself but for others too. It is located in the center of the chest. Its color is green & its element is Air. If it’s opened, then the individual will feel love and compassion and will feel a deep connection with other people.
If it is overactive, then you may be too dependent on other people. You will probably not feel good when there is no one around. You’ll find it hard to do things by yourself. If it’s only partially open, then you may not enjoy the company of others and will prefer to be on your own.
What causes the heart chakra to be blocked?
What causes the blockage? Many things can cause it to become blocked but the main reason is past trauma. It could have been too many broken hearts in the past. It could also come from your upbringing. Maybe you felt unloved when you were younger and this closed off it off.
Once it begins to close, you will no longer feel worthy of love. You will give up doing acts of kindness as it won’t feel rewarding. You will lack compassion & won’t have an understanding of how others feel. You simply won’t care anymore, your heart will go cold.
How to open the heart chakra
There are several things you can do to perform a cleanse. By wearing green clothes and wearing jewelry with gemstones like jade or emerald, you can speed up the process.
You can also heal it when you meditate & imagine a green glow deep within your chest. This should start to make a huge difference to the length of time it will take to balance this chakra.
