Heart Chakra – our rights “to love”

Heart Chakra

The Heart chakra (Anahata) is located in the heart, and is associated with love, peace and self acceptance. Its element is Air. The colour representation is Green.

The heart chakra controls the physical and emotional heart. Past abuses that impact this chakra are unacknowledged and unresolved grief, emotional dominance of another, not being loved, and being the recipient of conditional love, an experience of betrayal. This can result in depression, a sense of loneliness , a fear of intimacy, being clingy and jealous.

A healthy and balanced heart chakra brings about a sense of peace, compassion, empathy, healthy emotional boundaries.

This Chakra governs the lungs, heart  and circulatory system. An unbalanced heart chakra may lead to asthma, coronary diseases or lung diseases.

A number of Young Living essentials oils (YLEO) can be used to complement your attempt to bring the heart chakra back into balance.

  • Jasmine
  • Lavender
  • Marjoram
  • Rose
  • Believe
  • Joy

Oils applications: Inhalation, bottom of feet, heart area.

The use of YLEO, when coupled with seated meditation or your yoga practice, can bring your experience to a new level.

  • If you are interested to know more or try some of the essential oils. Its my pleasure to support your needs. Please drop me a note here.
