4. Chakra: Heart Chakra
The deep and true love within you! Love surrounds you: inside and outside! You are pure love!
Seat and function of the chakra
Your navel chakra is located around 2 cm above your navel point. This is the middle of your body; the place where your strength, the source of your willpower, is at home. Here, in your navel point, your personality and self-control are expressed. The 3rd chakra is all about your personal “power” and self-acceptance. How fitting that you live in the umbilical chakra energy for the first time at the age of 15 to 21: you start to define yourself, and follow your path. The energy of the 3rd chakra is powerful, like fire, which also happens to be the element of this chakra. Furthermore, the color which is associated with the third chakra is yellow. It reflects the light and warmth of the naval power. Clear, sunny yellow activates and strengthens the function of your 3rd chakra. On the other hand, bright yellow stimulates your activity, thinking, and actions, providing you the inner peace. In addition to the navel chakra, the third chakra is often referred to as the solar plexus or Manipura chakra. All digestive organs such as the stomach, bile, liver, spleen, pancreas and the autonomic nervous system are physically assigned to this chakra.
On the physical level, your Anahata center is associated with hands, heart, arms, lungs, and skin. In addition, the immune system is also considered to be part of the heart chakra.
Happy pink, as well as fresh green, harmonizes your heart chakra: these colors promote hope, trust, romance, and humility. Green is also known as the color of healing. All pink tones delight your inner child.
With a heart chakra open wide, you are completely in tune with yourself and take on the depth of who you are and your heart’s needs without or buts… Through this love for yourself, inner healing and transformation can take place. This is the basis for a fulfilling love for others as well as for compassion, understanding, and deeply felt joie de vivre. You are free from inner conflicts, doubts, and uncertainty. You see and feel with the power of the pure heart and radiate warmth and happiness.
Shoti Maa Tea
To balance your heart chakra, our Shoti Maa (in Sanskrit “little mother”) created the tea “Loving” with refreshing green tea, cinnamon, and orange. From our tea box, you can see the Hindu goddess Devi. Devi is considered the creator and ruler of the universe, she is the creative aspect of the Absolute (Brahman) and universal mother, and is therefore also called “Mata” or “Maa”, mother.
A person who lets his love flow out into the world makes himself the source of happiness. With this mixture of green tea, bergamot, and cinnamon, we refine our perception of the constant presence of love. Because when we smile at the world, it will smile back at us.
Meditations help us to find the most natural state of harmony and balance. While each of the chakras can be balanced through mediations that are dedicated particularly to the certain chakra (take out Chakra Quiz to find out which chakra should be balanced for you), there are meditations to find the overall harmony.
