Where is the Heart Chakra?

Where is the chakra of the heart?

Anahata is located right in the middle of the chest, on the sternum, which is why it is considered to be the chakra which receives the energies of the other 6 and transforms them to reach unconditional love:

  • The lower 3 chakras (root chakra, sacred chakra and solar plexus chakra) - psycho-emotional energies.
  • The 3 upper chakras (the throat chakra, the third eye chakra and the crown chakra) - mental and spiritual energies.


How do you feel when this Chakra is balanced?

When 4th Chakra is open and energy circulates well, you are able to receive and give love in return, you have harmonious relations with your entourage and you you feel perfectly in your place.

When it is perfectly balanced, here is what you are able to feel:

  • Respect and self-esteem and of others;
  • Your actions are decided with wisdom, compassion and sincerity;
  • Mental stability;
  • Balance between physics and psychics;
  • Joy of life and enthusiasm in every trial (inner peace);
  • Acceptance of change (see only the positive sides of things);
  • Openness and friendly contacts with others.

On the contrary, if you find yourself colder, more distant, less friendly than usual and that vo tend to choke your spouse with your love it is that we must work on this Chakra so that everything is in order.

How to detect them?

If the Chakra of the heart is blocked, you will notice some type changes very quickly:

  • You become more demanding, critical and possessive;
  • You are in a changing mood;
  • You fall into depression, even paranoia;
  • You feel dependent on the love of others, you need to be reassured all the time;
  • You cling to material goods;
  • You suffer from hypertension, asthma, chest, heart or lung pain.

If Anahata is too open:

You can quickly fall into extremes via an unlimited love for other one, too much self-giving...

You can fall into egocentrism and narcissism.

You then give to others for the sole purpose of receiving so much in return, which may lead you to live relationships that are too passionate or even devastating.

In terms of health, this can be felt by the appearance of cardiac problems and some blood circulation disorders.

On the contrary, if Anatha is too closed:

You then become dependent on others, you feel sad and depressed. It is much harder for you to show your love of fear of feeling the rejection of others and you lock yourself in.

To protect yourself from all this, you prefer to flee the company of your loved ones and lock you in professional, intellectual or sporting activities by practicing them intensively.

You can then reflect an image of someone cold, possessive, meditating and unstable and feel on the physical plane of heart, blood circulation or respiratory problems.

What are the possible causes?

When the Chakra Anahata is deregulated, it can come from several things:

  • Taking soft or hard drugs;
  • The fear of reliving a suffering (mental or sentimental) already experienced in the past;
  • The loss of a loved one:
  • You do not accept yourself as you are;
  • You keep your feelings and thoughts to yourself without ever daring to assert yourself;
  • You lack an open mind;
  • You live only for others and rarely think of you;
  • You don't dream anymore, you think happiness is inaccessible...
