Anahata, the Heart Chakra.
Anahata is also known as the heart, or the fourth chakra and can be located at the heart centre beneath the sternum. The associated colour is green.
About Anahata, the Heart Chakra
The word Anahata, can be translated to: Infinite. This chakra is associated with the air element.
Anahata is associated with feelings of love, compassion, forgiveness, nurturing and expansion.
The Anahata chakra develops between 4 – 7 years of age. Development is also strongly influenced between 18 – 28 years of age. Events that occur during these times can have a great effect on the development of the heart chakra.
Anahata chakra imbalances can manifest as:
- Feeling disconnected
- Fear of intimacy
- Fear of relationships
- Poor boundaries.
How to Balance the Anahata chakra
To balance the heart chakra you should be open to exploring the relationship that you have with yourself and others. Exercises that help you to understand yourself at a deeper level can be beneficial. This chakra benefits the most from therapies such as kinesiology, counselling and psychotherapy. You might also include breathing activities such as yogic pranayama or buteyko breathing technique. A yoga practice can help open the heart when working with positions that promote extension of the spine. Taking risks and reaching out to others on an emotional level can also expand the energy of the heart chakra.
Balancing the Heart Chakra with Kinesiology.
Kinesiology helps us identify heart chakra imbalances. Kinesiology allows the therapist to access the many subconscious connections that lead to imbalance. Through muscle testing, kinesiology can unlock and past experiences and events that have caused heart chakra blocks.
Suggested kinesiology treatment plan.
When balancing the heart chakra (or any other chakra) with kinesiology I recommend:
- An initial 90 minute kinesiology consultation followed by a standard consultation 1 -2 weeks apart.
- Further follow-up standard consultations should be spaced between 2 -4 weeks apart or booked as needed.
- You may like to consider a chakra journey experience whereby over the course of 7 sessions we focus in on blockages occurring in each of the chakras, working towards a subtle awakening of kundalini energy.
