The Heart Chakra is represented by the astrological signs of Libra and Taurus. This is the fourth chakra and is located in the heart/chest area and is associated with the color green. The Heart Chakra rules are ability to feel and connect to the vibration of love and the world around us.This is the center for love, compassion, connection, and our sense of bliss. The Heart Chakra rules the heart, the chest, circulatory system, upper back, lungs, and shoulders. When our Heart Chakra is open we are compassionate, we have a strong breath, we love ourselves and see love and compassion in everyone around us. When our Heart Chakra is balanced and open we are able to see that we are everyone and everyone is us; I am you and you are me; I love you because I love myself. When balanced our Heart Chakra allows us to have healthy heart felt connections and relationships with others; it allows us to be open to receiving and giving love. When our Heart Chakra is out of balance we can experience upper respiratory infections and issues, heart problems, chest congestion, upper back issues and pain, a disconnection to those around us, feel cold in our demeanor, shut down and closed off to connections and relationships, co-dependency issues, abandonment issues, trust issues, fear of emotions, dysfunctional relationships, and a lack of self-love
So what can we do to tune back in to the source of love? Incorporating foods that are green in color, spinach, broccoli, kale, pears, apples, zucchini, leeks, celery, kiwi, and herbs and spices such as cacao, rose, holy basil, and hibiscus can help us come into our hearts to feel the love again in a balanced manner. Carrying crystals or lining a bath with them such as malachite, green tourmaline, unakite, rose quartz, rhodonite, peridot, emerald, and jade can help to bring your heart into balance and return you to the source of all, love. Working with the mantra “I am love” can help release subconscious blocks that are keeping you from tuning into your heart and universal oneness. The Heart Chakra is associated with the element of air, so utilizing aromatherapy and essential oils such as jasmine, rose, ylang ylang, and vetiver can help reawaken to love and center within your heart space. Our Heart Chakra bath bomb combines the aid of CBD and a sensual essential oil blend featuring rose and bergamot to help bring you back to the heart. Pair your bath with incense, candles, and wind sounds for the ultimate heart healing experience.
