The Heart Chakra sits below the breast bone in the chest area. This centre influences your ability to give and receive love at all levels. It effects the Solar Plexus Chakra in a positive or negative way.
If the Heart Chakra is open to both giving and receiving love it has a positive effect on the Soalr Plexus Chakra.
If the Heart Chakra is wide open so that the heartache of the world pours in unchecked then it has a negative effect on the Solar Plexus Chakra.
Self Love is extremely important to the balanced functioning of the Heart Chakra. Achieve that and all other loves will flow to you. It will also allow you to help people without taking on their heartache.
A very useful crystal to assist in developing self love as well as the natural flow of energy within the Heart Chakra is the Keystone for Eternal Persistence, Green Aventurine.
Eternal Persistence is you existing in some form forever. You always have been and you always will be, limitless. Whatever is causing your inability to love yourself is limited to this physical life and perhaps a few earlier incarnations. A small span of time compared to eternity.
Green is the colour of healing, growth and abundance. Let Green Aventurine show you the real you, the eternal you, the lovable you.
- Take a tumbled Green Aventurine stone in your hand and visualise the warm and accepting, unconditional love of the creator filling it and energising it.
- Hold the stone over you heart centre while affirming three times - I am worthy of love. I am lovable. I love myself.
- Feel or imagine a beautiful and loving energy flowing within your Heart Chakra. Feel or imagine it bringing balance and right action to your Heart Chakra.
- When you feel ready to finish this exercise repeat the affirmation - I am worthy of love. I am lovable. I love myself - three times.
If you feel that you are taking in the heartache of the world or of those close to you, the following may help.
