Connecting to Your Heart Chakra - Anahata
The Heart Chakra is the 4th Chakra, located at the center of the Seven Chakra System. It is where the physical and spiritual come together. Situated in the center of the chest, it corresponds to the Heart, your lungs, the thymus gland, and the cardiac plexus. The location for the Heart Chakra is at the center of the chest, between the breasts. It's slightly to the left of the actual organ of the Heart.
In Sanskrit, it is called the Anahata, which means serenity. The Anahata Chakra is associated with green, representing transformation and love energy.
The Heart Chakra brings awareness to compassion, love, and beauty. Driven by the principles of transformation and integration, the fourth energy center bridges earthly and spiritual aspirations and joins the upper3 and lower three chakras.
This article will briefly introduce the Heart Chakra and its attributes. Most Chakra articles discuss the Chakras using the Root Chakra or the Crown Chakra as a starting point.
I like to start the discussion and experience from the center of the Heart of the matter because it is the connector of the upper three (Spiritual) Charkas and lower three (Physical) Chakras. The Heart Chakra can allow in more energy than the Root or Crown and energize the most vital point, getting this energy to the other Chakras with great speed and efficiency.

Heart Chakra Aligned & OpenedIf your Heart Chakra is aligned and open between you and your Higher Self, it will be reflected in your inner feelings alongside all you think, do, and say. Those with an aligned and open Heart Chakra are full of love and compassion.This is reflected in actions and experiences, including:
- Love for oneself and others
- Deeply connected
- Centered awareness,
The symbol for the Heart Chakra:
- A circle with 12 petals
- A downward-pointing triangle interlaced with an upward-pointing triangle forms a six-pointed star or hexagram.
- The intersecting triangles represent the air element and its all-encompassing quality. They also symbolize the union of seemingly opposite principles or types of energies, such as male and female, spirit and matter.
- The star the triangles form evokes the harmonious joining of forces and highlights the function of the heart chakra as a center of integration and connection.
As the fourth energy center, it's important to remember that it is multidimensional and energetically represented, with a front going through the center of the chest and a back going through the spine between the shoulder blades. The Heart Chakra is associated with the cardiac system and the lungs. These organs are interdependent and rely on air and breathing to function correctly. The gland associated with the heart chakra is the thymus, which regulates the immune system.
