Chakras 101 - The Fourth Chakra: The Heart Chakra - Anahata
Physical Location: Above the heart
The Heart Chakra is the fourth Chakra and her purpose is to be the balance between the Matter and Spirit Chakras. It is through her that they both are connected. But this Chakra has way deeper meaning and functions besides being a balancer.
This Chakra resonates with love.
The capacity for it and compassion in all forms, it all goes through this Chakra. When Anahata is well balanced, you feel on a completely new level, more deeply, more fully all the while you will be able to understand your emotions on a cognitive level. The color itself is connected to Mother Nature, from where we first came – from unconditional love. As this Chakra has such important functions, you can only imagine how devastating it can be if this baby is imbalanced.
