The heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest. When this chakra is functioning well, we feel and express love appropriately, appreciate the gift of life, have appropriate generosity, the ability and motivation to walk through our fears, and truly want the best for others.
In an unhealthy state, this center can become diminished or dominant. When diminished, the heart chakra feels emotional hurt and self protective, not wanting to be hurt again, a lack of joy, and can feel afraid to be fully involved with life and relationships.
When the heart chakra is dominant there is a tendency to over give, have warm interactions, but not integrated with discernment. It feels loving feelings, but is confused about appropriate loving behavior.
Using the third eye helps keep the heart chakra healthy!
