Balancing the Heart Charka

The heart charka is all about giving and receiving love. It’s about opening up to forgiveness and freeing yourself from guilt and shame. This charka focuses on kindness, acceptance and compassion for yourself and those around you. The heart charka is incredibly expansive.The energy it carries pushes through to the ends of the universe. If you are struggling with finding forgiveness for yourself or someone who has hurt you or if you are finding it challenging to find compassion for others this charka is the one to focus on. Sit or lay in savasana for meditation and start by placing your left hand on heart centre and right hand on top. Repeat this mantra to yourself and imagine your whole heart centre filling with green light and expanding across your chest and down your arms into the palms of your hands and out to the corners of the universe. Send this light to anyone in need or to anywhere in the world that is experiencing suffering. This energy is so powerful and can surpass time and space. This is pure loving energy, that can be sent to all areas of your life here and beyond.
