Symptoms of Energy Imbalance in the Heart Chakra

A centre of love and compassion, the Heart Chakra guides our relationships and emotional balance. Depleted energy in this centre will impact our ability to connect and empathise. On the flip side, excess energy symptoms create an overflow that might lead to over-dependency or giving too much of oneself.

As we restore balance within the Heart Chakra, we nurture love for self and others. If you resonate with at least 3 ‘depleted’ or ‘in excess’ symptoms, try some practices to foster harmony and a deeper connection within this loving energy hub.

Essential Oil Practice for the Heart Chakra

Heart Chakra Essential Oil: Rose

Embrace love and compassion with Rose essential oil, nurturing the Heart Chakra. Its floral essence fosters harmony, love, and emotional healing.

Practice: Heart-Opening Yoga

Apply diluted Rose oil to your palms before starting heart-opening yoga poses like the camel, cobra, or bridge pose. As you move through these poses, inhale deeply and visualize the soothing scent of Rose filling your heart space, inviting love and compassion into your practice.

Movement Practice for the Heart Chakra

Here are some simple exercises you can do to activate your heart chakra. Move your arms in whatever way feels good, as the arms are an extension of your heart chakra. This can include swinging the arms, flapping or circling them, or even giving them a good shake! You can also do stretches that open your chest area, such as heart opening yoga poses. Practises for evoking self love will also help - try writing a love letter to yourself, giving yourself a hug or saying 'I love you' to yourself in the mirror. Close your eyes and just listen to what your heart had to say.

Affirmations for the Heart Chakra

Reinforce your Heart Chakra by repeating one or all of these affirmations to yourself, encouraging the flow of energy to this centre. This is an amazing practice when you feel you need to connect more with your divine essence or the power of the universe, nurturing a deeper spiritual connection.  You can also come up with your own by bringing your attention to your Heart Chakra and noticing what comes up for you there. Turn these sensations into positive affirmations and repeat them daily for profound impact.

Heart Chakra Affirmations

As we wrap up our journey into the Heart Chakra's realm of love and compassion, remember that fostering meaningful connections starts with self-love. Embrace forgiveness, practice gratitude, and extend compassion to others. By opening your heart to love, you create a harmonious Heart Chakra, weaving a tapestry of connection, empathy, and emotional well-being.
