How to Open your Heart Chakra

Opening any of the chakras is a journey towards the Self. It is a holistic and gentle way of unfolding all the potential that you have within you as a human being. This is why chakra therapy is becoming more and more popular.The word therapy is derived from the Greek word “therapeia” the literal meaning to “assisting someone on his or her way”. Perfumes, gemstones, crystals, sounds and colour can all help us to open and balance our chakras. When you relieve a blockage in any chakra you could relive the experience or have the feeling again that caused the blockage in the first place. If working on the heart chakra this could literally mean reliving a broken heart again whilst undergoing the treatment. However the healing can be very powerful and necessary.

When the blockages begin to dissolve you may feel a reaction for instance to laugh or cry and you should not at this stage suppress any emotion that you are feeling. This is part of the cleansing process and a natural and necessary part of naturally cleansing chakras. Your heart chakra is the centre of the entire chakra system and therefore this is where life and love opens us to the life of other people. By opening this chakra you ensure that other chakras remain open
