The Heart Chakra is in the center of the Chakra system and is the integrator of opposites in the psyche: mind and body, persona and shadow, ego and unity.
When imbalanced, we may lack joy (depression, sadness). Agitation, nervous exhaustion, heartburn and insomnia are other indicators of imbalance in this area.
Physically, when the Heart is balanced, the heart properly governs and circulates the blood and insures proper assimilation of the beginning breakdown of food in the small intestines.
Emotionally, when the Heart is balanced, sensitivity and expression, true fulfillment and the equilibrium between heart and mind are our greatest rewards.
Remember, the best form of medicine is preventative. Learn how to heal with the seasons and how Traditional Chinese Medicine can bring your body back into balance with Acupuncture! Crystals can also balance the Heart chakra. I like to use a combination of Malachite or Green Aventurine, which supports the physical heart, and Rose Quartz, which supports the emotional heart……Lithium Rose Quartz for a stronger effect. Wear or carry them in your pocket. Newly available is my Heart chakra and hematite bracelet.
