Chakra Colors: An In-Depth Look at the Green Chakra

In continuation of my series on the Chakras, in this article I’ll be discussing the fourth Chakra: The Green Chakra. It’s also known as the Heart Chakra or the Anahata Chakra.

The chakra system is a complex network of energy centers that govern our physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. The Anahata Chakra, also known as the heart chakra, is one of the seven primary chakras in the body.

About the Anahata Chakra

The Anahata Chakra is associated with the color green and is often depicted as a spinning wheel of green light. This energy center is responsible for our ability to love[1], feel compassion, and form meaningful relationships.

When our heart chakra is balanced, we are able to connect deeply with others and experience a sense of joy and inner peace.

Heart Chakra Location

The Heart Chakra is located at the center of the chest, near the heart, hence the name. It is where our emotions rise up into our being.

While there is some different in opinion on whether the chakra is towards the front or back of the chest, most people direct their focus on the direct center under the breastbone.

Symptoms of Imbalance in the Green Chakra

When our heart chakra is imbalanced, we may experience a range of physical, emotional, and spiritual symptoms.

Physical symptoms may include heart palpitations, high blood pressure, or respiratory issues. Emotional symptoms may manifest as difficulty expressing love, feeling disconnected from others, or an inability to forgive. Spiritual symptoms may include a lack of trust in the universe, a feeling of being spiritually disconnected, or a lack of purpose.

If you find that you frequently need to emotionally wall yourself from others, there’s a good chance that your Heart Chakra is out of balance. Fortunately, there are many options to rebalancing the chakra.

An unbalanced or blocked Green Chakra may also cause social anxiety and low self-esteem.[2]

Balancing the Anahata Chakra

There are many ways to balance the heart chakra and restore harmony to this energy center. Some effective methods include practicing self-love, spending time in nature, meditating on the color green, and engaging in heart-opening yoga poses such as cobra, upward dog, and fish pose. Additionally, incorporating green foods and herbs into your diet can help to support the heart chakra.

Meditation with the following stones either touching the body or held within the palms of the hands can also help balance the Anahata Chakra.

  • Jade
  • Green Tourmaline
  • Green Calcite

Massage therapy can also be used to stimulate the Anahata Chakra and promote balance in this energy center. The massage therapist can focus on the area around the heart and chest, applying gentle pressure to help release any blockages or tension in the muscles and connective tissues. This can help to increase blood flow to the area, promote the flow of energy through the chakra, and restore balance to the heart chakra.
