...and sometimes those strong emotions can cause a closing down of the love center, as a protective measure.
It is time to open up this energy center and live life fully feeling everything that comes your way. The numbness of being shut down just will not suffice now that we have shifted energies through 2012 (along with other ongoing energetic changes).
You are safe.
It is safe to feel.
It is safe to expose your Chakra Heart to life.
...ignites this delicate energy center that is all about balance, love, compassion and self-control.
Located in the center of the chest, your chakra heart also affects the thymus gland (the thymus is it's own little-known chakra center), heart, lower lungs, digestive system and blood stream.
If you are experiencing health issues in any of these areas, working on the heart chakra will assist in your healing process
... connected to this chakra is the thymus gland.
... that benefit healing your Heart Chakra are Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Rose, Neroli & Marjoram.
You can use these oils (1 or more) in a carrier oil like sweet almond or jojoba and it apply it to your body after a bath or shower.
"Physically; improves digestion, promotes sweating and thereby relieves fever. soothes the chest and respiratory tract, helps clear airways, sinus congestion, asthma, chest infection, coughs,cold and flu symptoms
Mentally; Eucalyptus lifts depression, clears the head and strengthens the nerves.
Emotionally; Eucalyptus cools and comforts. It dissolves bitterness and resentment. Helps rid addictions, guilt, and self-blame."
Spiritually; Eucalyptus acts as a regenerative by opening the heart to Universal Love.
You may wish to place 1 drop of the essential oil directly on your Heart chakra or you may wish to place the oil in a diffuser to breath in the heady scents.
These are options and I recommend to just do what feels right for you.
Mix in the essential oils of Peppermint and Eucalyptus with the stones; Aventurine and Rose Quartz... into a spray bottle with distilled water.
Spray this on your Chakra heart and feel the energetic shifts into self-confidence!
This is love in a bottle!
The flower essences that help to open up the Chakra Heart are...
Bleeding Heart (with a name like that it's not surprising), Holly and Wild Rose.
... associated with the heart chakra are Aventurine, Emerald & Rose Quartz.
Wearing these crystals will ease the opening of this delicate zone. I would suggest a pendant or carry a stone (or 2) in your pocket.
Another tip is when laying down, place the stone directly on the chakra!
Adventurine heart crystal
The note "F" is the tone that vibrates in the heart chakra and the sound to use is Ah (as in mah).
As this sound resonates within you, you begin to vibrate away old stuck emotion around your heart center. Practicing chanting "Ah" on the "F" will achieve quick results.
Our self-talk effects us on a subtle level and enough of the negative kind will eventually have a negative affect. (and yes I did actually use effect and affect the correct way...yeah me :)
If we harness the power of our self-talk we can create positive change... and this brings us to affirmations.
I love affirmations!!!
I would be remiss if I didn't talk about Louise Hay, when sharing information on affirmations. Louise cured herself of cancer by using positive affirmations.
Yup all true!
Louise explains how limiting beliefs, ideas and self-talk are often the cause of illness, and how you can change your thinking…and improve the quality of your life!
Packed with powerful information, you'll love this gem of a book!
Yes there are yoga poses to open the energy and get it flowing through the chakra heart!
Head of Cow (Gomukhasana)
Spinal twist (Matsyendrasana)
That was a lot of information on the Chakra Heart!
