Thoughts From The Void

Heart Chakra

This heart chakra is by far the most confusing in my opinion. This is due to both its power and what it primarily deals with – emotion.

The Sanskrit name for this energy center is Anahata which translates to “unstruck”, “unhurt”, or “unbeaten”. Associated with the element or air, some say the energy the heart chakra is capable of producing, is stronger than any other location in or around the body. For me this is one of those conflicting ideas that I flip flop on because while I believe the chakra system is a system of balance and equality, I also know the unrivaled power of emotion. I find emotion is the driver, the power behind action. The trouble is, there is rarely balance found in this chakra so being able to harness the power behind our emotions is a tricky thing.

Energy disfluencies within Anahata occur due to grief. This is difficult to resolve sometimes because grief has so many layers to it. Denial is something that keeps us from even recognizing there is a problem at all. The obstacles of the heart run deep and most of us think we can’t endure the turmoil and pain required in order to heal these issues. Instead, walls are created that don’t allow us to access these parts of our history. The trouble with this is, if we can’t access parts of our emotions, we can’t access our full power. We can never have emotional harmony.

If we want to restore strength and balance to this chakra, we must look our grief in the face. The areas of lack and loss that we hide from must be addressed in order to let them go. Compassion must be found. We must take the lesson and leave the pain. This is how we begin to heal this energy center.

It is not easy, and arguably the most difficult chakra to bring lasting, stable, strength to.

An imbalance in this chakra can affect our ability to give and receive love and affection. It can result in either a detachment or over-attachment to the people in our lives. A few indicators to help you assess the functionality of the fourth chakra are listed below. 

Suggestive symptoms of excessive energy: Loving in a clingy, suffocating way; lacking a sense of self in a relationship; willing to say yes to everything; lacking boundaries, letting everyone in 

Suggestive symptoms of energy deficiency: Cold, distant, lonely, unable or unwilling to open up to others, holds grudges
