Heal Your Heart Chakra to Prevent & Ease Heart Illnesses

Heal Your Heart Chakra to Prevent Ease Heart Illnesses

The heart chakra is the balance point in the ethereal body. It is the energetic middle ground between all things material (the lower 3 chakras) and all things spiritual (the upper 3 chakras).

Physically, it is associated with the heart, circulatory system, lungs, arms and hands.

Spiritually, it is the center of peace, unconditional love, understanding and acceptance.

Our hearts are physically incredibly resilient and strong. But when we allow painful emotions to go unresolved, the heart can transform this pain into physical illness and even disease.

Cardiologist Dr. Kavitha Chinnaiyan, MD states, “Most patients of cardiovascular illness have deep-seated psychosocial issues that have never been addressed. These patients can present with symptoms of a heart attack with no “physical” cause (say, blocked coronary arteries) to explain them.”

Healing the heart chakra can help you treat and prevent cardiovascular issues, lower high blood pressure, reduce stress and improve circulation. Energy expert and Chakra Healing for Beginners course instructor, Dawn Quaresima states, “By being able to commune with your body and chakras through energy, you can detect imbalances and heal them.”

When your heart chakra is imbalanced
you may be more prone to feeling overwhelmed and reactive, rather than positively responsive, to anger, fear, doubt and sadness. Feelings of being unloved or not worthy of love can potentially attract people who only reaffirm this.

When your heart chakra is balanced you can experience a deep peace within and sovereignty over your emotions. You can express your truth without fear and you give others the space to do the same. You feel immense unconditional love in your relationships and you love freely and openly.

Healing and balancing your heart chakra can indeed take you to difficult places that you may have been unconsciously avoiding or suppressing because they are painful reminders of past events. But shining light on these dark places will free you from the grips of energetic blockage, greatly improve the health of your physical body, and help you fight and prevent heart-related illnesses.

Meditation to Heal the Heart Chakra

The heart chakra’s element is air. Meditating in nature and interacting with it will support the healing process and connect you more deeply to nature and her healing ways. Here is a great meditation you can do anywhere you can find a tree. You can also do this meditation if you are not in nature at any time during your day by visualizing a healthy tree in your mindscreen.

Affirmations to Empower the Heart Chakra

Place both hands in the middle of your chest and take a moment to feel your heart beating and spreading warmth through your entire body. Say these aloud before or after meditating, and in your mind throughout the day:

  • I am unconditional love

  • I love from my soul

  • I feel a sense of unity with nature and animals

  • I am open to love

Crystal Therapy to Cleanse and Charge the Heart Chakra

Crystals have energy just like everything else in the natural world. Each crystal vibrates at a different frequency and can be used for healing different parts of the physical and energetic bodies.

Rose quartz
is the crystal associated with love and the heart chakra. The message it emits is of unconditional love, joy, peace and healing.

: Place or hold the crystal over the heart on the sternum and simply bring your awareness to your breath. Visualize the vibrations of the crystal surrounding the heart and cracking the hard shell that has been built around it.

While lifestyle is an undeniable factor in treating and preventing heart issues, focusing your intention on releasing past hurts and healing the “wounded child” that lives within all of us can work miracles on the energy in your heart. If you’re interested in opening and healing your chakras, the Chakra Healing for Beginners online course will guide you through everything from chakra history to embodying their energy in your daily life.
