The 4th chakra is the heart chakra, the core of energetic frequency and root of all emotional and energetic healing. And no matter whether a person has experienced blockage since childhood, or due to a recent heartache, opening the heart is the start of your healing process. Living from this balanced chakra is truly a joyous and engaging experience, allowing people to be who they are instead of attempting to mold external expectations. A person with an open heart chakra is altruistic and respects others. People around them will notice an easy going peace that emanates outward, no matter the circumstance. Spiritually, a blocked fourth chakra can cause a feeling of disconnect, a lack of empathy, and an inability to trust oneself or others. Deep insecurity and fears are also common. When the heart chakra is blocked, it can have a negative effect on your physical, spiritual, and emotional health. In the body, this can translate as poor circulation and blood pressure extremes. The heart, lungs and upper extremities are all influenced by this energy. The heart chakra is responsible for acceptance and forgiveness. It gives compassion and empathy. Furthermore, everything related to transformation and change is in direct relation to heart chakra. This chakra also enables you to grieve. It helps us attain tranquility and inner peace in the midst of conflict. Open and heal your heart chakra by practicing meditation, affirmations, prayer, and opening your heart to the message of upbeat, joyous music. When the heart chakra opens, you’ll feel an abundance of empathy, compassion, and love.
Emerald is the stone of successful love. It opens and nurtures the heart and the heart chakra. Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. Emerald promotes friendship, balance between partners, and is particularly known for providing domestic bliss, contentment and loyalty. It was dedicated in the ancient world to the goddess Venus for its ability to insure security in love. Emerald was considered a symbol of eternal life in ancient Egypt and was a favorite jewel of Queen Cleopatra. The emerald mines in Upper Egypt, rediscovered a hundred years ago, are some of the oldest in the world and were called Cleopatra’s mines for her love of the stone. Emeralds were also talismans of Aristotle, Alexander the Great, Charlemagne, and the moguls of India. They’ve adorned the crowns and royal jewels of many countries for centuries, and fabulous collections and stunning gems continue to be treasured and displayed by the rich and famous today.
Rose Quartz also works with the Heart Chakra.
