Open Yourself up to Receiving Love through the Heart Chakra.
I want to start by providing a little bit of context about the Heart Chakra before we dive into the healing lesson for this month.
If you’ve been following our journey through the 7 Chakras, we are now at the fourth chakra, for those of you just joining us, welcome!
The Heart Chakra is a pretty big one, so no better time than now to jump on the train!
The fourth chakra is the bridge between the chakras that live in the physical world and the chakras that live in the spiritual world. It is the center of the seven chakras, with three below and three above, and is green in color.
Questions to ask oneself as it pertains to the Heart Chakra:
- What do you have an affinity for?
- What do you naturally love?
- How does the universe love you?
- How do you receive universal love?
In the study of the Chakras, generally, energy is received from the back and energy is given from the front.
This is rather significant because when we speak about learning how to open yourself up to receiving love- often- we confuse the feeling of giving with receiving. It is much easier to give love then it is to receive. So many people are striving to find love both within themselves and with others, so many people are starving for the feeling of being loved. Far too often we deplete ourselves of receiving because we’re unaware of just how much we’ve been focused on giving.
This is especially true if you are empathic, and if you are reading these blogs then there is a good chance you are.
Energetically, that means that the front of your heart chakra is always reaching out and feeling what other people are feeling.
You become very in tune with other people’s wants and needs, and going back the second chakra, you become so focused on what other people need that you don’t know what you want or what brings you joy.
Learning how to receive universal love is the first step.
You receive loving energy through the back of your heart chakra, between your shoulder blades.
You need to bring energy into your heart; to fill yourself up.
If you are constantly giving without filling up and receiving, then you will eventually wear yourself out and you will have no energy to give to yourself or to others. More importantly, you’re inevitably blocking the channels to receive love.
The lesson of this blog, question to ask yourself:
How do you fill up?
Moving energy to the back of your heart is the first step.
Imagine a warm hand or warm water on your back, or even imagine a rainbow, or flock of hummingbirds going into your back.
Do this every day, multiple times a day, and notice what happens.
If you are having a hard time receiving the energy then ask yourself, “what would it feel like if I were to receive?”
If you are out of practice you might not even be aware of how closed off your energy is, so imagine how it would feel and how would you feel if you were to allow the universal energy to surround you with love.
Don’t give up if you don’t feel it right away.
Give yourself the homework of doing this for 30 days.
You might have resistance to it at first, but I promise it will be rewarding if you stick with it.
Let me know how it is going for you.
