The Heart chakra, or Anahata in its original Sanskrit name, colors our life with compassion, love, and beauty. Driven by the principles of transformation and integration, the fourth energy center is said to bridge earthly and spiritual aspirations. The heart embodies a gentle wisdom that teaches us the ways of love and compassion.
This chakra fully immerses itself in our emotional responses, along with our internal world. It responds to inner thoughts, ideas, attitudes, inspiration and emotional needs. If you allow hurt and bitterness to overpower you, these negative emotional energies circulate through your body and as a result, can damage the entire body and spirit. But if you can forgive and let go, allowing all things loving to be recorded in every breath and every cell, then you will live with a happy heart.
A blocked Anahata chakra may look like:
- Difficulty trusting others
- Impatience and irritability
- Lack of empathy
Meditating is a wonderful way to focus on this chakra to help open and balance it. Use our Anahata incense sticks to direct your attention and intention of working on this energy center.
