Anahata: 4th Chakra (Heart Chakra): is associated with air, represents our social identity, and orientation towards self-acceptance. This energy is in the middle of the Chakra system of seven. It is related to love and is the integrator of opposites in the psyche: mind/body, male/female, persona/shadow, ego/unity. A healthy Heart Chakra allows us to love deeply, feel compassion, a deep sense of peace and a feeling of being centered.

The color for this area is green or pink and it is the color that energizes the region. This energy centers deals with physical healing, balance, harmony, and compassion. The Heart Chakra is the center of our emotional balance and is most important in all facets of love. When it is balanced, you trust in others, take risks, love and feel loved, unconditionally.

To help activate this Chakra, eat lots of greens, surround yourself in nature and be open to new experiences. Wear a touch of pink to identify with your compassion. The symbol of this Chakra is the Crescent.

Life development: The Heart Chakra is a representation of growth from age three to approximately age seven. The child learns about relationships with others outside the immediate family (the outside world). Relating, will build good self-esteem and self-acceptance.
