The Heart chakra or (Anahata)-4th energy center - is an integrating and unifying chakra - bringing to wholeness - as such, it is your healing center. Indeed, most spiritual traditions recognize love as the ultimate healing force.
The energy of anahata allows us to recognize that we are part of something larger, that we are interconnected within an intricate web of relationships extending through life and the universe. Anahata allows us to recognize and get in touch with the sacred and fundamental truth that runs through all of life and connects everything together.
Heart chakra Chakra Color Therapy:
Green color is composed of yellow and blue in equal parts. Green is a color of love. It is at the very center of your being. The heart center. Green is the energy of love and transformation. It allows you to transform your ego and the needs of your lower chakras and open up to love to become more loving and compassionate. It is at the heart center where the energies of lower chakras (once the needs are fulfilled and satisfied) can be transformed and integrated into a more spiritual aspect of yourself.
As you unfold the petals of your heart chakra, you find the seat of compassion, not only for others, but for yourself as well. You begin to radiate love. You begin to sense the interconnectedness of all of life.
