Empowering Your Heart Chakra – Reflections, Meditative Tools and My Inspirations Behind Emerald Bridge
After posting about the new Emerald Bridge Empowered Heart Chakra, sacred temporary tattoos, I felt guided to expound upon the Heart Chakra and its powerfully healing energy – LOVE – as we can’t get too much of it and we definitely could use more of it!
In the human energy system, the source of powerful and creative, unconditional love energy lies at the center of your chest in the Heart Chakra, or “Anahata,” in Sanskrit. From its middle position as fourth in a system of seven chakras, it is the balancing integrator of opposites (between body and spirit, male and female, persona and shadow, ego and unity) and acts as an energetic “bridge” between the lower and upper chakras. It is symbolized by a lotus of twelve petals and the color green, with emerald as one of its associated gemstones. It is from this place of peaceful centeredness that love emanates as divine power.
This is the foundation of, and inspiration behind, my company, Emerald Bridge, and its compassionately conscious focus that fuses visionary services and creations. The name was born as a reflection of the divine and powerful essence of the Heart Chakra and its integrative, healing synergy. I was guided to birth this energy as the foundation and focus of my company and then designed a symbol that would embody the essence of this energy, as well as be a visual activation and meditative tool to encourage taking courageous steps in following your heart’s joy and to shift into new realities of experience.
Love is the most powerful energy in the Universe and is a vital energy to be focusing on every moment of every day, more so now, if you aren’t already doing this, than ever. Holding your hand over your heart with conscious connection, for even just minutes a day, can help you to stay present in your heart, help heal and open it to greater depths. Ask for help in doing so from your guides, angels, your Source connection and even ask your essence to be present in your higher heart always.
I like to sit quietly and imagine and visualize, as I breath in deeply, divine, luminous, love like a chord of energy come through my Crown Chakra from Universal Source, moving in liquid warmth down through all of my Chakras (illuminating each with balance and opening) and once it gets to the Root Chakra, to continue down and out through my feet, making its way into the ground beneath me and penetrating through to Earth’s core, anchoring there and absorbing Mother Earth’s nurturing warmth. Then moving back up to the surface, back through my feet and on its way up again through my Root Chakra and continuing up, this time stopping at my Heart Chakra, integrating this Divine Cosmic and Earth energy love as a well of empowered nurturing and healing I can draw upon and disperse from to all areas of my experience needed. And then once I feel this integration has taken place, I then exhale out, as I visualize this beautiful love energy emanating out through my heart and all around me to others, the Earth, intentions…the collective, in a beautifully explosive luminosity of emerald liquid love (you can also visualize it as pink, or whatever symbolically feels right to associate the energy as for you.) I hold the energy of unconditional love and compassion, while doing this and send it out towards everything, including myself, for the highest good of all concerned. Most know there to be 7 major Chakras, but there is information that shares there to be 12, 13, etc. Chakras, depending on which school of belief/thought one subscribes to. By doing this visualization, you will be hitting all of them, as you extend above and below, through your entire body, and out of your body in all directions.
Today I wanted to reflect on the Heart Chakra energy, as empowering it through healing reflection and intentful presence will create a rippling effect across your entire life’s experiences, as well as the lives of those you touch, seen and unseen. Unconditional love shifts the collective every time we choose it. The key is to have it be like breathing – for now needs conscious intent until it becomes instinctive, second nature.
Here are some Heart Chakra inspired sharings from others. You can read the whole post at the links provided:
The heart chakra is considered to be the love center of our human energy system. Among others, love, heartbreak, grief, pain, and fear, are all emotions that are felt intensely within this energy vortex. For this reason, energy-based therapies that focus on balancing the heart chakra are often the purest healing. Learning self-love is a powerful initiative to undertake in order to secure and maintain a healthy heart chakra. Exploring the Major Chakras by Phylameana lila Desy
The heart chakra is the place where unconditional love is centered. Unconditional Love is a creative and powerful energy that may guide and help us through the most difficult times. This energy is available in any moment, if we turn our attention to it and use it to free us from our limits and fears. Opening Your Heart’s Emotional Power to Transform by Christopher Stewart
The heart stands at the center of all energies and unifies our being as a whole. It is the point around which all the energies turn. A discord or imbalance in the heart chakra will adversely effect all the other centers. A clearing of the heart chakra will improve the interaction of all the other centers. It is important to maintain a balance to all the energy centers so a healthy level of awareness is manifested in our everyday lives. Clearing the Heart Chakra, Rose Quartz Meditation from Phylameana lila Desy’s Guided Meditations Collection
It is imperative, now, that we keep our hearts open, and replace judgments with acceptance. It is vital that we learn to love even more, and to allow ourselves to be loved. We must relate in our relationships, and use communication to clear misunderstandings and disagreements. When we can keep ourselves in a loving space, we will have a positive effect on our environment, a healing effect. A Healer’s View of AIDS by Martin Brofman
When the heart chakra is out of balance you may feel sorry for yourself, paranoid, indecisive, afraid of letting go, afraid of getting hurt, or unworthy of love. Physical illnesses include heart attack, high blood pressure, insomnia, and difficult in breathing. When the heart chakra is balanced you may feel compassionate, friendly, empathetic, desire to nurture others and see the good in everyone. Body parts for the fourth chakra include heart, lungs, circulatory system, shoulders, and upper back. The Seven Major Chakras by Kellie Jo Conn
