The heart chakra is the vibrant hub of love, compassion, and empathy. A green chakra, this energy center is at the heart of your emotions. Self-care flows from the heart chakra, as well as all our emotional connections to others.
What Is The Heart Chakra?
The heart chakra is the fourth chakra of the spiritual body. It lies in the chest area, above the breast bone and below the collar bone.
While often considered to be a great chakra for romantic love and attracting a soulmate, the heart chakra also plays a vital role in self-love. Loving energy is stored here and can be directed outward or inward, or both. By showing some love for yourself, you can forgive past mistakes and accept yourself for who you truly are.
The heart chakra gives off unconditional love – the kind of love that requires nothing in return, the kind of love that roots you in the present moment because your love is now.
Being in the middle of your seven primary chakras, the heart chakra is also associated with balance.
In Sanskrit, the heart chakra is called Anahata, which means "pure".
Signs of an open and balanced heart chakra
When you have an open and balanced heart chakra, you'll feel:Feeling love for other people and life in general
- More inclined to forgive
- More compassionate
- Balanced and emotionally stable
- Rooted in your physical body but spiritually aware
In short, the heart chakra is the energy center of love. It's the chakra that enables you to heal emotional wounds through a conscious following of what feels good.
Signs of a blocked heart chakra
A blocked or imbalanced heart chakra is never good news, but it's not critical. Heart chakra crystals are here to help, but before we discuss them further, it's important to identify how a blocked heart chakra can affect you so that you can become aware of signs to look out for.
An underactive heart chakra blocks your energy flow and causes you to retreat into yourself.
If your heart chakra is underactive, you may feel:
- Shy and timid
- Fearful of being hurt by others
An overactive heart chakra can ramp up your energy to uncomfortable levels, negatively affecting your well-being.
If you have an overactive heart chakra, you may feel:
- Stressed and frustrated
- Superior and unaccepting of other views
- Suspicious and distrustful
- Tightness or pain in the heart
- Heart disorders
If any of these symptoms are familiar to you, there's a good chance that your heart chakra is imbalanced. But it's not the end of the world! Now you have the awareness to do something about it.
How can heart chakra stones help?
The heart chakra resonates with the color green, therefore crystals that share the color green will resonate with the heart chakra. Their energy will be directed towards this specific chakra. This also applies to pink crystals.
Pink and green crystals are excellent for heart chakra healing because they are often associated with emotions, particularly love and compassion. Their uplifting energy can help you come out of your shell and embrace your loving energy.
While there are many stones for the heart chakra to choose from, you'll want to find the one that intuitively calls out to you. If you feel a pull in a certain direction when browsing the heart-healing crystals on this list, trust your gut. Or more accurately, follow your heart.
Use the following list of heart chakra stones to unlock the door to unconditional love, purity, and serenity.
