This is your center of love. Self-love, friend love, love for the world, love for life, love for your pets. Love is our purest connection to the Divine and to our eternal selves.
It’s no coincidence that what is arguably our most powerful and important chakra is right in the middle, with three above it and three below. It is the meeting place of the higher and the lower, the balance between the physical and the energetic.
When this chakra is out of balance, all the others feel it. In some ways, it is our essence chakra, the chakra that breathes life into our mind-body system. If this chakra was ever to close, our connection to our source would close. This would result in chronic physical illness, depression, fatigue, and deep feelings of fear and separation.
Being in touch with our heart chakra can be like flipping a magical switch in our lives. Healing this chakra flows powerful healing out to all the others. The more we open up to and receive love, the more blessings seem to flow effortlessly into our lives. Our health improves, our finances improve, and we feel a general sense of love and exuberance for all of life.
