If we ever want to understand our actions, thoughts, and situations we experience, understanding, and evaluating our chakras are a great start. Chakras, the spinning energetic wheels within us are connected to each other and need to be nurtured. In other words, if one chakra is “off”, then another chakra is also “off.” Our chakras give us insights into what is going on with us. For example, throat physical issues are almost always related to us not speaking up enough for ourselves or not being as expressive as we should be.

As a result, there is a block spiritually that shows up physically as an issue that needs to be removed, sometimes medically. For those reasons, and more, I’ve created a chakra post series as a resource for knowing, understanding, evaluating, and nurturing your chakras. This resource also includes correspondences like which organs, colors, crystals, and foods are related to the chakra. Use the below information to combine using what’s recommended and consciously think about your chakra as your doing so. You may even want to get a check-up on the glands and organs below.

Proactive Ways To Keep The Heart Chakra Balanced

Make time for self-care, unapologetically, and regularly. Stay in touch with and protect your emotions as an empath or clairsentient. Take deep breaths and get fresh air constantly. Honor your sensitivity and be vulnerable around the right people. Don’t be too closed off from everyone and everything. Allow yourself to feel and embrace your senses.
