Relationships have a big impact on our lives and how we feel day to day – when things are good and we are in love, we feel light and energised – full of life and we want to share this love with others. People notice it, and we smile even more. Our hearts are full of love and as a result we feel good!
In the world of energy and chakras (which are concentrated spots or centres of energy) – the emotions of love, compassion and the energy connections we develop in relationships are all connected to the Heart Chakra found, unsurprisingly, in the centre of the chest.
This chakra is the fourth chakra in the energy system – and acts as the bridge that unites the mind body and soul. The Heart Chakra enables us to love deeply and unconditionally, show compassion towards ourselves and others and empathise with the feelings and emotions of others.
It is connected to the element of Air – which explains the floating feeling we experience we we are loved-up.
But there are times when when our hearts are a little heavy. Times where we feel unloved, unworthy or lonely, and neglect our self-care. Many life experiences can cause the energy in this chakra can become unbalanced or blocked leaving us feeling:
- Bitter, cold and distant
- Fearful of relationships
- Lacking trust in others
- Feeling unable to give or receive openly and freely
- Feeling lonely
- Being self critical and judgmental of others
But we can use healing affirmations to reconnect with this energy centre, forgive and heal after pain, heartache and grief, and open our hearts back up to love and compassion.
