The heart chakra – the center of unity, balance, and love. It’s the ultimate bridge between the soul and the body. It reflects our ability to connect to oneself and other people. It helps us overcome challenges and enjoy life to the fullest.
This is the chakra that digests all our life experiences - our life essence. It helps us deal with the ups and downs. All that you face and all that you overcome, it becomes forgiveness, peace, wisdom, and knowledge through the heart chakra.
It’s the all-knowing and all-seeing chakra opening the path to a deeper understanding.
From a holistic point of view, it’s not just about outside influences and invading organisms that affect our health. It’s about understanding our souls as a form of energy and how our emotions can affect our health. Our bodies are just vessels, and our soul is the energy that keeps it going.
Here, we will take a closer look into the role of this chakra and its effect on holistic healing.
Heart's Role in Our Body
The heart is a crucial organ in our body. It provides fuel to the rest of the system, letting it work properly. It may be small, roughly the size of our fist closed, but without it, we can’t live a single minute.
This little organ is in charge of pumping blood rich with oxygen through the entire system. And all the blood vessels are like an intricate network with multiple pathways that lead from one side of the body and all the way to the other.
Physically, the heart chakra is connected to the circulatory system, heart, hands, arms, and lungs.
Everything is interconnected with all the veins, arteries, capillaries, and arterioles. Without the heart, the blood won’t be able to reach all the organs.
The imbalanced or blocked heart chakra is not only bad for the mind, but it’s also bad for the heart.
Naturally, our hearts are designed to be strong and resilient. But, the moment we let unstable and painful emotions get in the way, these emotions can manifest into actual illnesses.
Having an imbalanced chakra for an extended period can cause numerous heart diseases. Some of these diseases include arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) and coronary heart disease (reduced blood flow). It can also result in other problems like decreased or increased blood pressure or even lung conditions.
The reason for that is the brick wall you build from your emotions. You don’t want to feel pain, so you block that emotion. Blocking any emotions can cause chest pain or shortness of breath. It’s unnatural to keep everything bottled up inside.
Heart and Mind
Our minds and our heart are placed far from each other, but, despite the distance, they remain intricately connected. Due to their strong connection, the heart and the mind work hand-in-hand.
Any heart problems can have a huge effect on mental health, and vice versa.
The way they communicate is unique. They use the muscular walls that surround the heart. These walls are connected to the circulatory system and the heart. When the brain tells the system what to do, the receptor cells will pick up the signals. While the nerve endings will go from the brain all the way to the muscular walls. They will send their signals to make the muscle tissue either contract or relax.
Thymus Chakra's Role in Immune system
The primary role of the thymus is to support the entire immune system. The way it does it is by creating T-leukocytes (white blood cells). These blood cells have an important role to play. Not only do they distinguish invading pathogens from harmless body cells, but they also protect the entire system from these pathogens.
If the thymus gland is disrupted in any way, it could affect the entire immune system. It causes heart problems, results in immune disruptions, causes bronchitis, and pneumonia.
Love and Affection
The heart chakra represents unconditional love and no ego. A healthy heart chakra opens the path to spiritual growth and a deep transformation. Once we open our chakras, we will be able to show compassion and forgiveness.
It’s like opening a window to your heart and soul. No wonder why it's called the "seat of the human soul." A balanced heart chakra showers you with love, like the flow of water from a spring.
Role in Mental Wellness
The flow of energy through the thymus chakra is what makes us more forgiving, accepting, generous, and receptive. A healthy and well-balanced thymus chakra makes us open and connected with others and ourselves. However, those with an imbalanced or blocked heart chakra will experience loneliness, isolation, fear, bitterness, and resentment.
Many reasons can block a heart chakra, but most of the common ones have a huge impact on a person’s mental health. Those who experience a blocked heart chakra have often dealt with emotional abuse, unhealthy social interactions, were either raised by an emotionally unavailable parent or were denied any love and affection. That’s why they have developed self-destructive habits that end up blocking the heart charka, leaving them unable to receive or give love.
