The Heart Chakra

Posted by Steph B. on

The heart chakra is the center of love, joy and happiness. If you are in balance with yourself and your environment, then you will be in balance with your heart chakra. When we think of crystals that heal this area, we think of Rose Quartz, Malachite and Amethyst. But there are many different ways to work with crystals for healing purposes. You can wear them as jewelry or carry them in your pocket, lay them on your body or hold one during meditation or yoga practice or use essential oils that have been blended specifically for this purpose like rose essential oil

The heart chakra is our center of love, joy and happiness.

The heart chakra is your center for love, joy and happiness. This is the place where you feel compassion for yourself and others. It helps you to be compassionate with yourself if someone else has hurt you or if you're feeling angry with someone else. This chakra helps us to give unconditional love to ourselves and others in our lives. It helps us understand that no one can make us happy except ourselves, so we should be kinder to ourselves rather than expecting other people to make us happy all the time. We need to recognize that each person has their own path in life and they are only responsible for themselves! The heart chakra also helps us feel empathy towards others by recognizing their struggles as well as their strengths; understanding how someone feels when they lose someone close is a great example of this type of empathy which comes from having confidence within yourself that allows others not just because but also because why does not matter anymore since all that matters now is helping those who are suffering without worrying about what might happen next year or five years from now when there might still be more work at hand!

When you are balanced in all areas of life, your heart chakra will be in balance.

When you are balanced in all areas of life, your heart chakra will be in balance. In order to achieve this balance, you must have good health, good relationships and a spiritual connection. When we are not well physically or emotionally, it is difficult for us to connect with others on an emotional level. Further still, when we do not have a spiritual connection with something greater than ourselves (the Universe), then we feel isolated and alone in our lives.

Your heart chakra is also linked to your immune system.

The thymus gland, located in the chest, produces T cells, which are the body's main defense against disease. It's no wonder that this area of your body is so important for a healthy immune system!

Crystals for healing the heart chakra include Rose Quartz and Malachite. The heart chakra is the center for all of your feelings, emotions and desires. The energy of this chakra is green, pink or turquoise and it is located at the center of your chest. It controls blood flow, circulation, as well as the cardiovascular system.

When it comes to healing this area of yourself, you can use crystals that are associated with it—such as Rose Quartz and Malachite—or you can use them in combination with other stones that help balance out any imbalances in your body. For example: if you’re dealing with chronic stress or anxiety but don’t want to use a heavy stone like Hematite (which is recommended for blocking negative energy) then try using some Turquoise instead; its lightness will help lift your spirits without being overwhelming on its own.

You can wear healing stones as jewelry, lay on them or use them in meditation, yoga, and Reiki.

The heart chakra is associated with the color green and it's located at about the center of your chest. This chakra governs love, compassion and self-respect. When this chakra is open you feel a sense of connection to others, a strong ability to listen without judgment, and an ability to give without expecting something in return.

When this chakra is blocked it can result in feelings of loneliness or isolation. You may have trouble expressing your emotions verbally or nonverbally (i.e., crying). It can also lead to feeling unworthy or unloved by others; when this happens we often become more withdrawn than usual because we don't want anyone else around us while we're feeling so bad on the inside.

The best ways to open up this area are through meditation, yoga poses that stretch out the chest muscles (like downward dog), wearing healing stones such as tiger's eye around your neck (or laying them across your chest during meditation), or getting massages regularly (especially those that focus on releasing tension from around the shoulders).

Healing the heart chakra through crystals, stones and essential oils can benefit your overall wellness.

While crystals and stones can be used to heal the heart chakra, essential oils are a great addition. Essential oils are natural blends of plant extracts that can help clear away negative energy and promote happiness and positivity.

  • Peaceful Mind - Chamomile, lavender, citrus blends like grapefruit or orange; also try jasmine oil for its calming properties
  • Calm Heart - Rosemary, clary sage and sweet marjoram blend well with lavender oil in a diffuser blend or rub on wrists or temples when needed

Using crystals, stones and essential oils can be a great way to help heal your heart chakra. We hope this article has helped you understand what it means to have a balanced heart chakra and how you can benefit from healing your chakras in general. If there is an area of life where you feel out of balance, consider looking into some of the stones listed above or other forms of holistic healing like Reiki or yoga.
