Have you ever wished for more peace, tranquility and love in your life? There are ways of achieving this inner peace, and also benefit from more tranquility and love in the process through your heart chakra.
What is the Heart Chakra?
The heart chakra is located in the center of the chest, and it is most commonly associated with feelings of love, including unconditional love. It is also the center of emotional empowerment. This chakra governs a variety of parts of our body including the heart, circulatory system, lungs, blood, breasts, arms and hands.
Those who are out of touch with their heart chakra may consistently have issues with emotions like anger, grief, jealousy and loneliness. These unpleasant feelings may even manifest in physical ailments such as heart conditions, asthma, and problems in the upper back and shoulders.
It is through our heart chakra that we stay in touch with our emotions. However, over time, it is quite easy to lose the connection to one’s feelings. This can also reduce one’s empathy and compassion for others. Anyone wishing to be in touch with himself or herself as well as others needs to reconnect with this important chakra.
Finding More Peace and Love
The simple truth is that an open heart chakra will lead to a better and more fulfilling life. Why? Focusing on bringing more peace, tranquility and love into your life will gradually begin to shirt your consciousness. This is yet another reason that visualization is an important tool for transforming your life.
It may seem “too easy” to focus on peace and find it, but that is exactly how it works. By focusing on your heart chakra and being more open to a life rich in peace and love, you will find more of both.
Now, this may, of course, seem impossible at first if your life seems too chaotic or is causing you stress. However, these situations are actually when you need to visualize and meditate on what you want the most. Within the heart chakra lies the ability to self-heal and heal others as well.
Open Up Your Heart Chakra and Let the Chaos Go
Learning to address and deal with the chaos around you is essential for achieving what you are seeking. Opening up your heart chakra means that you are opening up your heart to love, and that means you are opening up your entire life to new possibilities. If you are unhappy, then you need to make changes and change and love go hand-in-hand. Opening up your heart chakra and embracing life and all the possibilities that it holds will allow for that transformation.
The heart chakra plays a key role in yoga and can also play a key role in your meditation sessions as well. While meditating, focus on being not just calmer, but also being happier and more at peace. Focusing on the heart chakra can bring you into greater balance in all areas of your life.
Some find that it is useful to touch the chest during meditation. This may initially help you locate the spot where the energy is located. But remember that your heart chakra isn’t actually in your physical body. Instead, it is a subtle physical body that radiates through this location.
Few other techniques can help you achieve a greater sense of inner peace as meditation. The results can be profound. Ultimately, understanding your chakras and the healing energy that they possess will transform your life.
