This chakra relates to our sense of touch. Hugging is a Heart Chakra activity. Sensitivity about being touched indicates heart chakra sensitivity. Perceptions of love are related to this Chakra. Difficulty with breathing and problems with the lungs indicates tension in the Heart Chakra. A person’s relationship with air reflects their relationship with love. When our hearts are open, we are at peace with ourselves and with those around us.

The negative archetype of the Heart Chakra is the Actor/Actress. This archetype refers to those who play at love but who are not sufficiently aware and hide their darker feelings under the hidden agendas of power and dominance. The Actor/Actress is incapable of real intimacy because it resists feeling its fears and negativity to loving and being loved by another. It goes through life acting as if everything is fine, escaping its inner emotional reality and managing to avoid the experience of intimacy. It doesn’t expose its own vulnerability and feels safe only at a distance from those it professes to love. Love, for this archetype, is a mental exercise rather than a function of the heart. When anyone becomes too close to its vulnerable core, it closes down and sabotages its relationships.
The healthy archetype of the Heart Chakra is the Lover. The Lover first and foremost loves themselves. Without knowing who we are and understanding and accepting ourselves, we cannot fathom the power of love. As we choose love, we also choose life. As we affirm ourselves, love eases its way into every fiber of our being. This archetype loves people, animals, plants and all of life.
Crystals to balance the Heart Chakra are Emerald, Green and Pink Tourmaline, Malachite, Green Jade, Green Aventurine, Rose Quartz and Peridot. These stones can be carried in a pocket, placed in the area of the Heart Chakra or made into an essence.
Imagine your Heart Chakra. The color of this chakra should be a beautiful, clear emerald green. If you see any other color, remove it and imagine the chakra being filled with yellow energy. Once you are able to imagine the proper color filling this chakra, imagine it spinning in a clockwise direction. Spin it faster and faster as you fill it with emerald green energy.
