'Chakra' is a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel' or 'disk', and is an integral thought in Ayurveda, meditation and yoga.

There are seven main chakras in the body - from the base of the spine to the crown of the head - corresponding in location with major nerve centres. These key points are believed to hold a 'vortex' of subtle energy - ideally kept free-flowing and in balance.

Today we will look at the heart chakra, Anahata.

Anahata is located at the centre of the chest, and is one of the two chakras of relationships. It is responsible for compassion and connection.

Its colour is green, and bija mantra is Lam.

Imbalances in the heart chakra may manifest in:
Feeling hate towards yourself and/or others.
Manipulative behaviour and/or trust issues.
Poor circulation.
Problems with the heart, lungs and/or chest.


To balance the heart chakra, try:
Giving someone a warm hug!
Releasing a grudge or letting go of something causing you pain.
Spread encouragement and positive feedback to family, friends and co-workers.
