What is the Heart (Anahata) Chakra?
The fourth of the seven chakras, the heart chakra as the name implies, is located in the center of the chest. Just as it's found in the center of the chest, it is also the center of all of the chakras. There are three chakras above, and three below.
This chakra is associated with love, compassion, forgiveness, and empathy towards others and for yourself.
The Sanskrit word is "Anahata" and means, unhurt, unstruck, and unwounded.
The element for this chakra is air, and the color green represents loving energy and transformation.

The heart chakra is known for making decisions outside of karmic situations.
In the Sacral Chakra and those below it, you are bound by fate and the laws of karma.
Anahata teaches you are responsible for your choices and your fate is had by your decisions.
This 'heart led pathway' wants you to make these choices and decisions based on what is best for you, and to the most peaceful and happy life.
When the heart chakra is in balance, you aspire to live from a place of love. Comfortable in your own skin, you don't feel the need to mold yourself to others expectations.
You're ready to evolve in this life, showing up as someone who is respectful, and who doesn't shy away from the challenges of life.
Anahata is a healing force--showing you belong to something larger in this universe. It forges the connection between you, your interactions and relationships, and the natural world.
Living your life from this "path of the heart" means you are ready to accept your role in meeting all obstacles with loving kindness.
A balanced Heart Chakra looks like:
Holding boundaries--from a place of love and caring.
Emanating peace--even when conflicts or challenges arise.
An openness for change--and a "judgment free" zone towards self and others.
Having healthy relationships--with yourself and others.
Being self confident--and self reliant.
Having a blocked or unbalanced heart chakra can be from an event in your life you haven't fully dealt with or let go of. It could be from grief, or an emotional conflict. Divorce, death, job loss, relationship issues, all of these can block a heart chakra. Your body can hold onto this energy and manifest as physical symptoms such as, immune deficiencies or diseases, heart problems, or breathing problems.
Negative aspects of a blocked Heart Chakra:
Feelings of anger, jealousy, or greed.
Lacking in empathy or compassion for others or yourself.
Living in a negative past experience.
Holding a victim mentality.
Taking criticism as a personal attack, or grudge holding.
The first three chakras (root, solar plexus, and sacral) are linked to your physical body, and if they aren't open it can affect the heart chakra negatively. Heal. is the best choice in Orlando to help when wanting to balance and open the chakras. When working with Anahata, it is important to work on opening those first three chakras for the best outcome on opening your heart.
