3 Simple Steps On How To Balance And Heal Your Fourth Chakra

Anahata Mantra: “I LOVE”

In total, there are seven chakras. They are said to be the source of where all energy flows through the body. It is said that blocked energy can lead to imbalances in life and illnesses. The fourth chakra is located in the center of the chest. The Anahata, the fourth chakra, is all about connecting and relatedness. Therefore, it is about how open we are in our relationships with others and ourselves. Chakras are balanced through food choices, daily choices and rituals/routines. Here are 3 simple steps on how to balance and heal the fourth chakra.

Rituals/Routines

When you practice love and forgiveness with yourself, then having that for others will flow naturally through your heart chakra. Cultivate self-compassion by forgiving yourself for any past indiscretions. In particular, address any generational traumas and forgive. Additionally, be very aware of your emotional state; be gentle with yourself.

Practice self-care by running a bath, dropping a few drops of one of the oils above, placing a few of the crystals (rose quartz and/or malachite) on your tub and RELAX. While in the bath, go over the affirmations above to cultivate openness and compassion for yourself.

Practice letting go of grievances. Allow yourself to feel the emotions of hurt and regret, but LET GO. When you hold on to negative feelings, you put your ego in the driver seat. If it is someone close to you that repeatedly hurts you, practice compassion and love them from a distance. Do not allow their blocked chakra to manifest into a blocked chakra for you!

Keep a daily journal of at least five things you are grateful for everyday.
