As soon as you feel an imbalance in your Anahata, first of all, you should turn to meditation, which will help you to restore the correct flow of energy in your heart.
Meditation is a very personal experience, and everyone should understand what works best for him. However, there are several recommendations that are suitable for almost everyone.
For meditation, use comfortable clothes, and try to find a time and a place where no one will bother you. Even if it’s a five-minute break when kids play a video game, it’s better than no time for meditation!
If you don’t know how to start your meditative practice you may want to try meditations for beginners.
2. Color therapy
The green color can be a great tool for your heart chakra healing since the green color is associated with Anahata.
Include green color in your meditation and daily life. Add green clothes to your wardrobe, wear green jewelry. Do not forget to strive for balance, but do not overdo it. Plants are a great way to add greens to your workspace.
3. Mantra therapy
Mantras are a good way for reinforcing your aspirations. They are simple and help to focus on the most important. Mantra for Anahata is “YAM”. By singing this syllable, you not only physically heal your heart but also spiritually (emotionally) by opening yourself to unconditional love and compassion. You can repeat this syllable aloud or in your mind during meditation.
You can also use special love mantras for your heart chakra healing.
Since heart energy imbalance is often associated with self-esteem problems, it may be useful for you to practice affirmations that enhance the positive energy associated with Anahata.
Examples of affirmations you can use for your heart chakra healing:
“I love myself and accept myself completely»
“I’m open to love”
“I love myself”
“I forgive myself”
“I am loved”
“I radiate love and people around me feel it”
“I live in balance, in a state of grace and gratitude”
5. Music Healing
It’s not a secret that music has great healing power, and perhaps this is because it touches the strings of the human soul so much. Including music into your meditations, you will enhance its positive effect. You can also listen to love mantras and even include mantra music into your meditations.
6. Ritual Baths For Heart Chakra Healing
Ritual baths are not only a very effective, but probably one of the most pleasant ways to heal your Anahata chakra. All the details of this magical procedure and all the instructions you can find in my article “Ritual Baths For Chakra Balancing”.
While you are meditating, visualize how a loving, healing light enters you through your crown chakra and moves down to your heart. Imagine how love and light fill every dark corner of your heart. Visualize how your heart is filling up with love, and how all the negativity is disappearing. You will see great results if you do this visualization every day for just a few minutes!
8. Hugs, Cuddling, and Touches
Physical touch helps to open your heart chakra. Try to give your partner or family members as many hugs as possible. If you don’t have a partner you can take massage sessions or reiki healing sessions.
Open yourself up to intimacy. Many people who give up relationships because of fears usually have a blocked heart chakra. Some people fear the loss of freedom, others – the loss of love. They avoid contact. But for your heart chakra healing, you need to allow yourself to experience love!
Awaken compassion through forgiveness. It is essential for your heart chakra healing. Forgiveness does not mean that you should ignore or forget that people hurt you. Forgiveness means only that you release your emotional burden about this memory. Kindness will help you forgive the one who has wronged you and heal your emotional wounds. Don’t forget to forgive yourself as well!
11. Radiating Love
When you meditate, send love to everyone you know: to the people you love, hate, fear, avoid, the ones you know and the ones you may be accidentally seen just once in your life. Visualize how you’re radiating love and your love is healing everything and everyone around you. It’s a very powerful transformational and healing meditation!
12. Thoughts Control
Choose the direction of your thoughts. Every time when you catch yourself on a negative thought, tell yourself: “STOP!”. Replace that negative thought with a positive one immediately! This approach requires time, consistency, and discipline but it creates a habit of thinking about yourself in a positive, loving way!
