Air, Social identity, oriented to self – acceptance – Second Toe, Index Finger
This Chakra is connected with the thymus gland, and is associated with the colour green. It is located in the middle of the chest. On a physical level it affects the heart, lungs and circulation system. Self-awareness, unconditional love and compassion are controlled by this Chakra.
This effectively controls self-acceptance and by extension everyone else around us. Blockages may result in attitudes such as selfishness or emotional blackmail. Physical manifestations could be disorders of the lungs and heart, and circulatory problems.
In what way do you feel connected to others? Do you connect with your mind/mental aspect or your heart/emotions? Listen to your heart, it has the answers.
Do you put pressure on yourself to always be ‘right’? Are you hard on yourself for ‘failing’? The Heart chakra is about balance with yourself and others.
Do you put on a ‘brave face’ and pretend that all is well? It is important for you to acknowledge your pain and learn the lesson, as soon as you do this it will disappear. Rejoice in what you are learning and move forward in your life.
Are you compassionate or do you judge others? Remember everyone’s reality is different.
