The heart or the Anahata (as it is called in Sanskrit) chakra is named so because it is right adjacent to the heart.
Not only it is situated in the middle of the chest, it is also the medial chakra which connects the chakras of the upper body with those from the lower body.
In a way it provides a linking point for the energies of a more primal nature, to those which are related to Spirituality. It is also the energy center which defines our relationships with others and our emotions.
Here are 4 signs which indicate that something is not quite right with the heart chakra-
1. Loss in empathy towards others:
Some people happen to be less empathic than others and are mostly concerned with their own affairs. But if you are not naturally one of such people and recently have been finding it hard to care about others than you might have a reason to worry.
2. Need for solitude and shyness:
If your heart chakra is blocked, other than feeling for others, you’d also find it difficult to communicate with them. As mentioned before, heart chakra is responsible for our relationships with others and if it is blocked we would withdraw into our own shelf instead of mingling with others. Social skills too would suffer a loss and you’d find yourself more and shy.
3. Inability to forgive:
Since we would be having a hard time understanding the problems of others, we would also not find it in ourselves to let their mistakes go. If you feel a sudden change in your attitude, especially if people have started pointing it out to you then maybe you need to change. If people are complaining that you should let things go, then perhaps you need to pay attention.
4. You’re Bottling Up Your Emotions:
If you’re in the habit of keeping your emotions bottled up, it can definitely take a toll on your love life. When you do this, you will feel a lot of pressure in your chest and may possibly experience anxiety. Holding back will definitely impact the quality of your life.
That’s why finding a safe place to release your emotions is key. It can be screaming or crying in the shower, going for a hike, walking alone or with someone you can share your innermost feelings with, and of course, seeking some form of healing – reiki, massage, and other modalities will help you.
5. Your relationships:
And most importantly, if you have a blocked heart chakra, your relationships will suffer. If you think that your relationships are turning sour, you need to pay heed to your actions.
Meditation, healing crystals and aroma therapy can help if you find that you are suffering from these symptoms.
