Has your ability to love yourself or others shut down? Do you hang onto past hurts and live with a shield around you? Balancing your Heart Chakra will remove these old, stuck emotions and make way for love and acceptance to flow in.
When your heart chakra is open, you are flowing with love and compassion, you are quick to forgive, and you accept others and yourself. It is a love that has integrity and is not based on co-dependence. A closed heart chakra can give way to grief, anger, jealousy, fear of betrayal, and hatred toward yourself and others.
