A chakra—the Sanskrit word for “wheel” or “disk”—centers on the concentration of energy in the body. There are seven chakras found in the body which energy flows through. Each represents a unique emotional and spiritual state.
The Anahata Chakra, or more commonly known as the heart chakra, is the center of unconditional love and compassion. Located in the center of the chest, the heart chakra is the center of your deepest bonds and connections with others, your feelings of self-love, kindness, and generosity. A balanced heart chakra allows you to live openly and freely, full of acceptance and love for yourself and for others. It is your healing center. This “center” not only allows you to live your life with kindness and compassion, it also allows you to inspire these same qualities in others.
When you repress your feelings, it is believed that your heart chakra can become imbalanced. Stagnant energy of the heart chakra can potentially lead to feelings of loneliness and difficulty with forgiveness.
One way to help promote balance is to be open with your emotions. Regular mediation is believed to help with emotional openness and acceptance. Placing malachite and rose quartz stones on the heart chakra may help soothe and provide a sense of calmness or peace. Malachite is believed to absorb negative energies from your body and provide spiritual growth while the rose quartz is known for self-love or universal love.
The rose quartz and malachite should be used together. Rose quartz may be used alone on the heart chakra. However, the malachite should not be used alone or without the rose quartz, as rose quartz is known for its soothing and harmonious properties.
Steps to Balance Heart Chakra:
- While lying down, place the following stones on heart area: malachite and rose quartz stones
- Breathe deeply into your heart. Think to yourself: “As I open up my heart, I ask for peace and forgiveness”
- Allow yourself to feel love, envisioning a beautiful light in your heart gently expanding, experiencing waves of peace.
