Anahata

My Chakras

 

Today we practiced the technique of scanning our Chakras. It was out of my expectation that the heat actually stronger at my Heart Chakra in sanskrit terms is called Anahata. 

 

In Anahata the fourth chakra, Anahata chakra is located at the center of the chest closed to the heart. The corresponding element of this chakra is Air. Air represents freedom and expansion, this means this chakra is our consciousness that can expand to infinity.

 

In the symbolic of Anahata Chakra there is a Lotus with twelve petals. These represent the Divine qualities of the heart, such as bliss, peace, harmony, love, understanding, empathy, clarity, purity, unity, compassion, kindness and forgiveness. 

 

Our heart, the center of emotions and feelings. The emotion that frequently fluctuates according to external and internal impact. Our heart is so much difficult to handle and control by our mind, and often, our mind and our heart are always fighting over matter. It can be as simple as choosing a colour for our clothes, to as difficult as making the choice to let go of a relationship. 

 

So, that is the signs of underactivity/overactivity of one of my chakra, then what can I do to balance up my underactivity/overactivity? And so what is the balance in between? When our Anahata is balanced, we will feel ease with people, have great compassion for all the living creatures, are comfortable with our own company, exuding love and enjoyment.  

 

There are many ways that are able to help with balancing my heart chakra, like Asana, Pranayama, meditation, or incorporating breathing in meditation or in asana. I particularly prefer music and food. 

 

In sound/music, the heart chakra frequency is 341.3 Hz, this frequency associated with the element of Air, listening to the music attuned to this particular frequency brings balance to the heart of the chakra. Research also showed that The 528 Hz frequency which is also known as ‘love” frequency helps to open your heart chakra to unconditional love.

 

In nutrition, green and rose coloured foods full of phytochemicals resonate with the heart chakra; there are predominantly fruits and vegetables. Good nourishment of the fourth chakra is essential for supporting the cardiovascular system, thymus, and lungs.
