How your Heart Chakra Impacts Romantic Relationships
The heart chakra, also known as Anahata in Sanskrit, is the fourth chakra in the human body's energy system. It is located at the centre of the chest and is associated with the colour green or pink. The heart chakra governs your ability to love, empathise, and connect with others on an emotional level. When it is balanced, you feel open-hearted, compassionate, and loving towards yourself and others. However, when it is blocked or overactive, it can have the opposite effect.
Balanced Heart Chakra
A balanced heart chakra allows you to give and receive love in a healthy and fulfilling way, showing compassion and empathy. When you have an open heart, you can prioritise their needs as well as your own. You’re more equipped to forgive and let go of past hurt, allowing your relationship to progress.
Overactive Heart Chakra
When the heart chakra is overactive, you may become too attached and co-dependent in a relationship. You might find yourself prioritising your partner's needs over your own and struggle to maintain healthy boundaries. This can lead to a lack of self-care and self-love, causing you to lose yourself. An overactive heart chakra can also lead to jealousy and possessiveness, causing tension and conflicts.
Blocked Heart Chakra
When the heart chakra is blocked, you may struggle to connect with others on an emotional level. Giving and receiving love can feel challenging, forced and you may find yourself questioning if the person is genuine. Feeling closed off and guarded in relationships can lead to a lack of intimacy and connection, resulting in feelings of loneliness and disconnect.
How to Balance your Heart Chakra
There are many ways to balance your heart chakra, including meditation, yoga, and energy healing. One effective way to balance your heart chakra is through heart-opening yoga poses, such as camel pose or bridge pose. You can also practise loving-kindness meditation, focusing on sending love and compassion to yourself and others. Another helpful practice is to engage in activities that bring you joy and happiness - This can help open your heart and cultivate positive emotions.
