Anahata (Forth Chakra)

Chakra four
Our heart Chakra is the balancing point for the other Chakras. Energy from the three lower Chakras combine with the energy from the three above and find balance.
Anahata governs intuition, hope, love and forgiveness. The element is air and this Chakra encompasses our heart, lungs, shoulders and arms, ribs, breasts diaphragm and thymus gland.
When unbalanced we struggle with resentment, loneliness, grief, anger, mistrust, lack of hope and the tendency to label and judge. Physical manifestations of an imbalance are heart failure or attack, asthma, lung problems, upper back and shoulder issues and problems related to the breasts.

The heart speaks to us on behalf of the soul. You might notice when we need to figure something out or need space we say “we need air” or when we are hurt we take a deep breath.

When we carry grief in our hearts it turns into a grievance against another. It is important to search ourselves for these feelings. When we forgive we set ourselves free. Forgiveness is the foundation for ALL healing.

When Anahata is balanced we have self love, compassion, empathy, peace, unity equilibrium and a strong immune system.

The name Anahata translates to mean unstruck. Perhaps this is how we are meant to live our lives, as if our hearts have never been wounded.
