Read..THE HEART CHAKRA

ITS PLACE AND MEANING

From the Sanskrit, Anāhata, the Heart chakra is associated with being at the center of your chest. Originally those who practiced tantric yoga and worked with the Heart chakra would have visualized a subtle, spinning, metaphysical green, twelve-leafed lotus flower

When working with the Heart chakra, you should remember that the practice is primarily one of visualization and the purpose is to bring you closer to the divine: for the kundalini, the energy of creation, to rise up through all of the chakras until it meets the divine

To facilitate visualization and activation of the Heart chakra, it has been associated with colors, elements, organs, crystals, archangels, positive human values and foods. These connections should be recognized as channels that we can use to help us release the energy and to bring us closer to our connection with the divine

It is common to associate the color green and the element of air with the Heart chakra

Should you feel too flighty, disconnected, not linked to earth or simply be failing to visualize the kundalini rising-up through the Heart chakra, there is every reason to work with the seed-mantra for the other elements, earth (LAM), water (VAM), fire (RAM) and space (HAM)
