Heart Chakra: Heal this Fourth chakra to bring peace and joy to life

Posted by Jacob Brian

With all the stress we face at work, in our relationships, health issues, careers, a lot of people suffer from anxiety, fear-based emotions which affect the Heart chakra.

Healing and activating the fourth chakra, or Heart chakra, can bring one a great deal of peace and help one to have better control over their emotions. The purpose of healing is to remove all negative or diseased energies from the chakra, so it can function at its best and allow prana to flow freely.

The heart chakra is the center of higher emotions such as joy, peace, love, compassion, mercy, kindness, and patience and is associated with positive energy. With an unbalanced blocked heart chakra, you can go through a series of lower emotions like stress, anger, depression, fear, hatred, or jealousy. 

With a well-balanced heart chakra, you are more peaceful internally, your relationships are better, and you can maneuver pressure situations more effectively by being calm in your approach and are aligned to your soul. Chakra or Pranic Healing is one of the most advanced and effective healing modalities that can help one to have a well-balanced heart chakra.

Why do chakras get blocked?

These chakras each have a profound effect on our physical and mental well-being. An overactive heart chakra indicates there is an obstruction in the circulation of life-force energy. Blockages in the chakras are caused by congestion. If the chakra has too much or too little prana, it cannot function optimally.

Chakras can be blocked either for physical or psychological reasons. Long unexpressed lower emotions such as stress, anxiety, depression, fear from the past contribute significantly to the blocking of chakras. 

Chakras are energy centers positioned along the spinal axis that look like wheels when observed clairvoyantly. These chakras spin clockwise and anticlockwise and take prana or life force from the environment to maintain and keep the body healthy. As per Grand Master Choa Kok Sui (Founder of Modern Pranic Healing), there are 11 major chakras along with multiple minor and mini chakras in our system.

Eating unhealthy food, not being able to keep the physical body fit, may also cause an imbalance in the chakras. The negative energy that the system is unable to release may have consequences on the overall physical and mental health. The imbalance of the chakras is the cause of physical diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, insomnia, cancer, etc. when left unattended for too long.

As per Pranic Healing Founder Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, most diseases originate from malfunctioning of the chakras, and almost all diseases ranging from the common cold to cancer can be healed with Pranic or Chakra healing using the proper technique.

Below is the list of some of the most common symptoms when one or more chakras are blocked.

  • You may feel you are stuck in life and things are not moving ahead
  • You feel lethargic most of the time in spite of sleeping adequately 
  • You tend to have fearful emotions to make decisions 
  • You do not have control over your emotions, you are mostly depressed, sad or agitated 
  • You always lookout for love and affection from others
  • You lack the energy to work or to perform any activity
  • You suffer from heart palpitations, high blood pressure.

Heart Chakra Location: Know where is heart chakra?

This chakra is also commonly known as the Anahata chakra, and it is this chakra that connects the lower chakras to the upper chakras. The lower chakras are the Sacral chakra, Navel chakra, Solar Plexus chakra while the upper chakras are the Crown chakra, Ajna chakra, and the Throat chakra, 

The Heart or Anahata chakra is located at the center of the chest. There is a front and also a back heart chakra, the back heart is located behind the front heart chakra. This chakra is about love, compassion, mercy, and all higher emotions. An open and balanced heart chakra person is loving, caring, and sympathetic.

A lot of times we come across men or women who are very loving and kind, they may not be very wealthy or physically fit and also going through a lot of problems in their life, however, when it comes to showing kindness or mercy these people never shy away. We often think about how these people manage to smile even during tough times, not only are they very kind to themselves but also sympathetic towards others.

The above is a definite case of an activated Heart Chakra, it is open and in balance, their heart chakra blooms and spins optimally and that is how they radiate so much warmth and compassion. These people can go to any length to help others even when they are not in the capacity to do so. 

What blocks the Heart Chakra?

Chakras can be blocked for many reasons and can have an impact on the physical as well as mental health, some cases can also go from bad to worse with an underactive heart chakra.

Often, stressful events and emotional pain block your heart chakra, pain caused by old memories, traumatic experiences may congest your heart chakra, affecting your relationships, causing conflicts and unrest. In a balanced state, the energy flows freely through your chakras making you more peaceful and energetic.

For instance, if a couple is having relationship issues, and it remains unresolved for months then years, this emotion that is withheld or unexpressed leads to an obstacle in living a peaceful life, and when your life is primarily filled with negativity and hatred, this chakra is blocked as a result

The easiest and the best way to identify if your heart chakra is blocked, is to test how your relationship is with others, questions you may ask yourself, “Am I being compassionate towards myself and others?”, “Am I being sympathetic to people going through a life crisis?”, “Is my family sharing and expressing their feelings freely?”, “Do I respect everyone and radiate love when needed?”

If your answer is a ‘Yes’ to the above-mentioned questions then you are doing fine, however, if the answer is a ‘No’ then it is a matter of concern.

How to heal the heart chakra?

Opening the 4th chakra is very essential since it is the center of love, and when one is loving and compassionate, success and spirituality are natural consequences.

Pranic or Chakra healing is the most effective and tested way to unblock chakras, the healers use their hands to scan and cleanse the negative energy that may be causing the heart chakra blockage. Once the chakra is cleansed thoroughly they activate it using specific color pranas and balance the chakra.

When a chakra is blocked it is clogged with dirty or diseased energies caused due to emotional factors, making the chakra either overactive or depleted, in both cases, there is a negative impact on the overall health mental and physical.

Pranic or Chakra healing helps to disintegrate this diseased energy which is restricting the flow of energy through the chakra and also the associated organs such as the heart, thymus gland, and lungs. If the healing is done properly and regularly, the results are astonishing and one can start to feel better in just a few sessions.

An open Heart chakra can have miraculous effects on strained relationships, career growth issues, in improving finances and prosperity, bringing in more peace and joy in one’s life, can help to be more successful, focused, and may lead to spiritual awakening.
