the more i think about it, the more i realize there is nothing more artistic than to love others.
~ vincent van gogh
as you can probably imagine, i’m all excited and ready for the next holiday…valentine’s! yes, i know it isn’t really a holiday, you scrooges, but i am all about all things red and pink, hearts and flowers and not just on february 14th, but for all the days leading up to then. let’s be honest, i’m all for that stuff any day of the year.
in the meantime, i’ve been working on my heart chakra. perhaps this valentine’s day will be a little more green with all the same amount of heart.
Anahata chakra symbolizes the consciousness of love, empathy, selflessness and devotion.
On the psychic level, this center of force inspires the human being to love, be compassionate, altruistic,
devoted and to accept the things that happen in a divine way.
i know very few people whose anahata couldn’t use a little tlc. how, you ask? well, the recommendations range from the simple to those requiring a little more devotion. the key is green. eat it, wear it, see it, drink it.
the heart chakra is number four and is located in the chest. it governs compassion, understanding, forgiveness and acceptance. an imbalance shows the opposite emotionally and manifests as heart, lung, chest, blood, immunity complications. beyond bathing in a sea of green, best actions to get your anahata back on track are loving, giving and sharing; best meditation is on the phrase i give, i care, i love.
this year, i’m nourishing my self, i’m licking wounds and i’m building strength. though in my heart, i knew it was needed, even as far back as when i chose my mala, it took a little while for my head to catch up. heart work is on the agenda these chilly winter days. ❤
