Heart Chakra Associations

Posted by terrepruitt on November 15, 2011

Yesterday after my Nia class I was looking for something to post about today.  I often look at my blog to see how many articles I have posted in each category.  I am sort of surprised that my “Misc” is surpassing my “Nia”, but I bet a lot of the post categorized under Misc mention Nia in some way.  I noticed Chakra only has two post and I know I said I was going to post more on that so I googled Chakra and lungs.  I have been sensing my lungs lately.  If you’ve read my blog for a bit you might know that I think that most of the time we don’t sense our body parts.  We don’t think about them and we don’t sense them.  When we sense them is it usually because something is up.  I don’t think about my back until it hurts.  I never sense my elbow until it is sore.  My toes are pretty much on their own until I hurt one.  So that is what I mean.  You don’t think about your heart or your lungs unless they are bothering you.  I don’t always like to assign the word PAIN to a sensation because it is not always pain.  I could just be an itch or a discomfort, either way, I am sensing them.  So I did a Chakra lung search.  I don’t know why I was surprised.  The chakra that affects the lungs is the heart chakra.

The heart chakra is the fourth chakra.  It located in the middle of your chest.  The color associated with it is green.  In the body the associations to the heart chakra are the heart, the circulatory system, the entire chest area, lungs, breasts, the diaphragm, the thymus gland, the immune system, and some say the endocrine system. One website states:  “Possible Physical Symptoms: Heart Issues, Lung & Breathing Problems, Upper Back Pain, Breast Cancer, Compromised Immune System, Blood Diseases.”

The fourth chakra is where feelings and emotions of love originate.   Joy, honesty, happiness, generosity, compassion, respect, and understanding are associated with the heart chakra.

The heart chakra is affected by grief.  I was just thinking that my itchy lungs could be a result of a less than happy heart chakra.  I was reminded by this one site that the middle of the chest would be right behind the sternum.  The sternum and rib cage protect the actual heart and organs.  This information made me lean even more towards those thoughts.

Several sites stated an exercise that could be performed to help balance the heart chakra is to vigorously rub your hands together.  This opens the energy in the hands which are connected to the heart’s energy.

So interesting.  I still do not understand all the energies in the body and in the world, but I see how it can all be connected and how sometimes certain energies can become block or unbalanced.  It amazes me to see how it all connects.  But if you believe that it DOES all connect, then it might be that you can understand how a sad heart could have itchy lungs.

Have a day full of light!
