The heart Chakra is positioned in the centre of the chest, and is connected to two other minor chakra’s, the thymus and newly developing Chakra the kalpatree.
The associated colours of lights to balance them are, respectively bright grass green and pinkish violet or gold. Our hands are included in the flow of heart Chakra energies, and it is through them that we can experience the gift of touch. The heart is the place where unconditional love and compassion develop.
These can be encouraged by first balancing the heart Chakra with the colour green, and then the colour of soft pink. The circulation of air and oxygenated blood through the body are functions of this Chakra. Energy blockages in the heart Chakra manifest themselves as heart or lung disease. The flow of lymph may also be affected. When the heart Chakra is fully balanced the physical body automatically enters the state where its basic survival needs are met.
