Chakra #4 – “The Heartfelt”

Last week I started a chakra series but abruptly had to change course since I was visiting Yosemite with little to no connection to the internet. I will now pick up this blog on the seven chakras and share my insight into Chakra #4, The Heartfelt.

I will continue to provide to you each chakra’s function and its connection to our physical and emotional health, as well as, tips to teach you how to work with each one.

Last week I covered Chakra #1 – The Grounder, Chakra #2 – The Creator, Chakra #3 – The Powerball and today is Chakra #4 – The Heartfelt.  I will again cite my references for this blog:

Deborah King, Truth Heals – without the knowledge obtained from her book, Truth Heals, I wouldn’t have been able to recognize my own issues and begin my self-transforming journey.

Swami Saradananda – without being presented with her book, Chakra Meditation, I would have stayed “stuck” in my own turmoil.

It will be important at this point to subscribe to this blog in order to get an action plan for balancing these chakras.  You can also send an email to and title the subject line:  CAP – Chakra Action Plan.  This action plan will be provided no later than two weeks after the final chakra blog is published.

Many of you may know that each chakra takes in and processes energy as it distributes this energy back out to our body or psyche.  These chakras are the reason that our emotions are thought to affect certain parts of our physical body, which in turn, can make us ill mentally, physically and spiritually.

Understanding these chakras and the many ways to work with each one, helps us remove negative energy blocks that can open up and enhance our physical and emotional well-being.

Today, we will look at Chakra #4.

The heart chakra is located in the center of our chest

Aka (also known as):
Anahata Chakra

Home to the winds of change; it can gently move away the negative emotions of the lower chakras such as fear, guilt, shame and anger.  (NOTE:  The lower chakras are the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras.)

Chakra Physical Disorders:
When the heart chakra is not balanced, some of the physical body risk areas are the heart, arteriosclerosis, asthma, allergies, pneumonia, bronchitis, emphysema, upper back or shoulder pain.

Emotional & Physical Issues:
Divorce, death, abuse, and abandonment issues can cause emotional numbness as our heart chakra will cut itself off from communicating with our other chakras, which leaves us feeling empty and unfulfilled.

Negative Traits:
The unpleasant experiences that cut off the heart chakra cause us to forge negative thought patterns which transmutes these negative thought pattens into physical ailments.

Natural Event:
A number of common or natural events can occur that can knock this chakra off-balance.  Some of those events are:

  1. Heartbreak
  2. Death
  3. Betrayal
  4. Divorce
  5. Abuse

This chakra allows us the ability to love and be loved.  It also allows us to be empathic, compassionate, accepting and, the big one – it allows us to forgive.

Action Plan:
Sign up for this blog and I will send you a personal action plan to balance this important chakra.

Until next Monday June 20th, come right back here where we’ll take a look at Chakra #5, the “Speaker of the House”, the throat chakra.
