Your heart chakra is the fourth chakra located in the center of the body. It connects your physical and spiritual nature. Anahata is located in the center of your chest and it is responsible not only for the heart function but also for the lungs, thymus gland and the cardiac plexus. That’s why the heart chakra healing is so important!

In Sanskrit, the heart chakra is called Anahata, which means an unharmed, spiritual place where past resentment and experiences cannot hurt us anymore. Anahata is associated with the green color, which means transformation and energy of love.

If your fourth chakra is balanced, first of all, it is noticeable by your behavior. Those who have an open heart chakra are full of love, forgiveness, and compassion. Conversely, those who have a heart chakra that is out of balance or blocked are prone to anger, hatred, and jealousy. All of these are physical manifestations of the fourth chakra, which needs healing.

The ability to open the heart chakra is amazing. It does not matter whether a person suffers from problems with heart chakra since the childhood or due to a recent emotional trauma. When you open your heart, you will begin to heal.

Signs Of Balanced Anahata

When your heart opens, you will immediately feel love and compassion for others. A balanced and open heart chakra allows people to be who they are, instead of trying to meet someone’s expectations. Life with an open Anahata is joyful and happy.
A person with a healthy heart chakra is altruistic, he respects others, he gives love and feels loved, he is kind, caring, and benevolent.

Signs Of Imbalanced Anahata

If you have an imbalanced Anahata, it can negatively affect your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health. On a physical level, you may have a poor blood circulation and jumps in blood pressure. Anahata strongly affects the heart, lungs and upper body.

From a spiritual point of view, an imbalanced fourth chakra can cause feelings of detachment and a lack of empathy, while the emotional consequences of such a malaise include the inability to trust yourself or others. The feeling of insecurity and fear in such a situation is also very common. They can develop into mental problems, such as manipulative behavior.

People with imbalanced Anahata may feel an indifference to people, the absence of self-love, and self-pity. They are often unable to sympathize, have problems in a relationship and heart disease. They may be capricious and are not able to enjoy their lives.

Signs Of Hyperactive Anahata

People with hyperactive Anahata often blush. In stressful situations, their pulse is rapidly accelerating. They feel excessive compassion and sacrifice, the desire to please others.

Heart Chakra Healing

If you feel the symptoms of a closed, imbalanced, or hyperactive Anahata, which is characterized by a constant negative attitude to yourself or others around you, it means your heart chakra needs good healing.

The only way to do your heart chakra healing is to change your attitude towards the world around you, stop focusing on things you don’t like, and start feeling grateful for what you have in life instead.

Then you will begin to understand how grateful you are for your friends and family and even for the career, you have at the moment. By focusing on the feeling of gratitude for all that is given to you in this life, you can begin to balance your heart chakra.

Anahata is a universal chakra that is capable of easing pain in your life. Its energy connects a person with the Universe and is the center of spiritual healing within a person. When it is balanced, you begin to feel warm, sensual joy to the world around you.

There are many different ways to heal your Anahata. Let me share with you 13 methods of heart chakra healing. In my opinion, they are not difficult to do but very powerful.

1. Meditation

As soon as you feel an imbalance in your Anahata, first of all, you should turn to meditation, which will help you to restore the correct flow of energy in your heart.

heart chakra meditation image

Meditation is a very personal experience, and everyone should understand what works best for him. However, there are several recommendations that are suitable for almost everyone.

For meditation, use comfortable clothes, and try to find a time and a place where no one will bother you. Even if it’s a five-minute break when kids play a video game, it’s better than no time for meditation!

If you don’t know how to start your meditative practice you may want to try meditations for beginners.

2. Color therapy

The green color can be a great tool for your heart chakra healing since the green color is associated with Anahata.

Include green color in your meditation and daily life. Add green clothes to your wardrobe, wear green jewelry. Do not forget to strive for balance, but do not overdo it. Plants are a great way to add greens to your workspace.

3. Mantra therapy

Mantras are a good way for reinforcing your aspirations. They are simple and help to focus on the most important. Mantra for Anahata is “YAM”. By singing this syllable, you not only physically heal your heart but also spiritually (emotionally) by opening yourself to unconditional love and compassion. You can repeat this syllable aloud or in your mind during meditation.

You can also use special love mantras for your heart chakra healing.

4. Affirmations

Since heart energy imbalance is often associated with self-esteem problems, it may be useful for you to practice affirmations that enhance the positive energy associated with Anahata.

Examples of affirmations you can use for your heart chakra healing:

  • “I love myself and accept myself completely»
  • “I’m open to love”
  • “I love myself”
  • “I forgive myself”
  • “I am loved”
  • “I radiate love and people around me feel it”
  • “I live in balance, in a state of grace and gratitude”

5. Music Healing

It’s not a secret that music has great healing power, and perhaps this is because it touches the strings of the human soul so much. Including music into your meditations, you will enhance its positive effect. You can also listen to love mantras and even include mantra music into your meditations.

6. Ritual Baths For Heart Chakra Healing

Ritual baths are not only a very effective, but probably one of the most pleasant ways to heal your Anahata chakra. All the details of this magical procedure and all the instructions you can find in my article “Ritual Baths For Chakra Balancing”.

7. Visualization

While you are meditating, visualize how a loving, healing light enters you through your crown chakra and moves down to your heart. Imagine how love and light fill every dark corner of your heart. Visualize how your heart is filling up with love, and how all the negativity is disappearing. You will see great results if you do this visualization every day for just a few minutes!

8. Hugs, Cuddling, and Touches

Physical touch helps to open your heart chakra. Try to give your partner or family members as many hugs as possible. If you don’t have a partner you can take massage sessions or reiki healing sessions.

9. Intimacy

Open yourself up to intimacy. Many people who give up relationships because of fears usually have a blocked heart chakra. Some people fear the loss of freedom, others – the loss of love. They avoid contact. But for your heart chakra healing, you need to allow yourself to experience love!

10. Forgiveness

Awaken compassion through forgiveness. It is essential for your heart chakra healing. Forgiveness does not mean that you should ignore or forget that people hurt you. Forgiveness means only that you release your emotional burden about this memory. Kindness will help you forgive the one who has wronged you and heal your emotional wounds. Don’t forget to forgive yourself as well!

11. Radiating Love

radiate love image

When you meditate, send love to everyone you know: to the people you love, hate, fear, avoid, the ones you know and the ones you may be accidentally seen just once in your life. Visualize how you’re radiating love and your love is healing everything and everyone around you. It’s a very powerful transformational and healing meditation!

12. Thoughts Control

Choose the direction of your thoughts. Every time when you catch yourself on a negative thought, tell yourself: “STOP!”. Replace that negative thought with a positive one immediately! This approach requires time, consistency, and discipline but it creates a habit of thinking about yourself in a positive, loving way!

The Bottom Line

As you can see Anahata is a very important chakra. It is a place where the physical and the spiritual come together. When you have an open and balanced heart chakra the whole world is full of joy and love. That is why it is so important for everyone to heal and to nurture their Anahata.

Crystals For Chakras: Discovering the Power of the Chakra Stones

Crystals for chakras Image

Crystals have certain vibrations and a unique configuration of subtle energies. There are crystals that resonate with our energy centers that are able to harmonize and balance our chakras. The proper interaction with these stones and crystals can change the vibration of our cells and energy fields and improve our mental and physical health. In this article, we will share with you the most powerful crystals for chakras that can help you to balance and harmonize them.

Crystals and Chakras

Life is the circulation of energy. Energy flows through our bodies along the energy meridians and is concentrated in the energy centers – the chakras. Chakras are a kind of accumulator and at the same time generator of vital energy – Qi. Each chakra corresponds to the energy of its own frequency and of certain vibrations, such as color (wavelength) or the sound of a special mantra (frequency of sound vibrations).

The lower chakras (Muladhara, Svadhisthana, and Manipura) resonate with the lower frequencies of the earth, and the upper chakras (Anahata, Vishuddha, Ajna, and Sahasrara) respond to the high-frequency vibrations of the Cosmos. Thus, the human body is considered as an open system that is part of the general energy system “Earth-Human-Space”.

Essential Oils For Chakras Image

There are seven main chakras. Each of them is responsible for a certain sphere of human activity. Each chakra has its own color and is associated with a certain part of our body, as well as certain characteristics and aspects of our life.

Our chakras respond to the energy of the colors that we see during the day in nature, in food, and clothing. And when the chakras get into contact with the energy of stones, minerals, and crystals, they perceive it very actively. Therefore, so many healers use crystals for chakra balancing.

If you have a weak chakra and you feel a lack of energy in it, wear crystals that resonate with it as jewelry for its gentle healing and balancing. This is a gentle and safe method of chakra healing, which you can safely do on your own.

How to Use Crystals for Chakras?

If the chakra is not sufficiently supplied with energy, it always leads to physiological and psychological problems. The energy balance in the body is disturbed, general malaise is felt, diseases appear. Crystals can help to restore the energy level of the chakras, heal, and balance them.

Crystal Chakra Healing Therapy Image

Here are different ways you can use crystals for chakras:

#1: Crystal Meditation

Direct contact with the crystal allows you to raise the vibrations of body cells and energy fields. Meditation is the most profound form of communication with the crystal. Therefore, the best way to use the healing power of the crystals for chakras is to meditate with them. You can hold the crystal in your palms in front of a specific chakra or, if you prefer to meditate in Savasana, you can just place the crystal on the chakra.

#2: Crystal Jewelry

To restore the work of the chakras, you can wear talismans and jewelry with chakra crystals. For balancing your Root chakra wear crystal pendants. For your Solar plexus chakra wear a crystal belt. For your Heart chakra balancing, wear pendants with crystals. For the Throat chakra, wear crystal necklaces. Bracelets on the wrists affect all the chakras, so you can always wear them. If you wear a bracelet on your left hand – the main effect of the stone will be directed at you and if you wear it on the right hand – on the people around you.

#3: Massage

To activate the chakra and remove the blockage, a massage with healing stones or crystals for chakras is a perfect way to get a quick result. Just make sure that the massage of the energy centers is performed gently and safely.

#4: Crystal Charged Water

Healing water, charged with crystals, helps to purify the chakras. To charge the water with healing crystals, use a glass, ceramic, or porcelain jug or bowl.

Place a crystal in a jar, jug, or bowl filled with purified water and leave it for the night.

You can drink crystal-charged water in the morning, or use it for chakra ritual baths.

Don’t forget to cleanse your crystals before and after using them.

The Bottom Line

Crystals for chakras is a simple yet very effective way to balance your energy field and harmonize energy circulation in your chakras. By placing crystals on the chakra centers, the healing vibrations given off by the stone will correct imbalances within the chakra and restore your energy flow.

Chakra Frequencies: 7 Powerful Tones For Sound Healing

Published

on

chakra frequencies hz image

Our chakras play an essential role in how we feel and function mentally, physically, and emotionally. When we align the seven main chakras, we feel whole and fulfilled. You must also be aware that there are over 100 chakras in the human body. However, we need to align the seven main chakras arranged along the spine for a peaceful and harmonious feel in the body.

There are ways you can restore unaligned and blocked chakras in your body. One sure way to do it is to use chakra frequencies. In this article, we look at how you can use Chakra frequencies to regain perfect Chakra alignment.

What are Chakra Frequencies? 

Chakra frequencies are a type of sound therapy that comprises vibrational tones, sound, and music to enhance your emotional and physical well-being.

This kind of sound healing typically entails calm and soothing music and sounds such as:

  • Tuning forks;
  • Indian classical music;
  • Tibetan singing bowls.

To activate Chakras the sound therapists use specific sound frequencies to activate different chakras.

Activating the Chakras and Solfeggio Frequencies 

Solfeggio Healing Frequencies Image

Solfeggio frequencies are the sound frequencies associated with chakras. These sound frequencies vibrate at a specific Hz frequency while interacting with your brain to create desired results throughout the body.

Since ancient times, the Gregorian monks of Western Christianity and Eastern Indian religions use Solfeggio frequencies to promote stress relief, body calmness, and relaxation.

Despite being used in ancient times, these frequencies became popular in the 70s. Dr. Joseph Puleo discovered that six vibrational tones could create harmony in the body. He also found that these harmonies could heal the body and mind and eliminate subconscious negative beliefs.

Here are the six frequencies that Dr. Joseph Puleo discovered:

  • 396 Hz – This sound resonates with the root chakra. It can help eliminate trauma, fear, and guilt.  
  • 417 Hz – We associate this frequency with the sacral Chakra. It is great for taking your creativity to the next level. It is also instrumental in bringing positive change. 
  • 528 Hz – This Solfeggio frequency is vital in transforming cellular functions. You can use it to create a better neural path to the brain, which is connected to the solar plexus chakra
  • 639 Hz – This Solfeggio frequency is linked to the heart chakra. It is excellent for transforming your love and intimacy in life
  • 741 Hz – This tone is associated with the throat chakra. It is the ideal tone to choose to improve self-confidence, esteem, and communication skills. 
  • 852 Hz – We link this frequency to the third eye Chakra. It is vital for people who would love to improve their mental clarity and brain function.

Using the Solfeggio Frequencies to Heal the Chakras

The resonation of the Solfeggio frequencies has a significant positive impact on the chakras. For instance, the Schuman low-frequency resonance effectively promotes the synchronization of the higher brain. This is effective for your brain health as it matches the different brainwave states.

Here are ways different Solfeggio frequencies heal different chakras:

The Root Chakra

We associate the Muladhara, also called the Root chakra, with stability and security. Having this Chakra aligned guarantees you better success at having all basic needs. The root chakra vibrates at 396 Hz. This smooth vibrational tone is composed of long wavelengths that produce soothing sounds.

You can also listen to 396 Hz music to eliminate fear and guilt. It may also free you from negative emotions and feelings. If you want to eliminate fear and guilt while restoring courage and strength, we recommend sound that vibrates at 396 Hz.

Sacral Chakra

The Sacral Chakra is also called the Svadhistahana. This chakra governs our intimacy, sensuality, and sexuality. If you have these qualities right, you can easily connect with your passion in life. You can also achieve high levels of creativity.

The sacral Chakra vibrates at 417 Hz. If you want to drop the creativity block, listen to 417 Hz Chakra music. This frequency is also great for seeking to heal sexual and personal trauma.

When it comes to the physical, this sound can help relieve tension from body parts such as joints and muscles, especially around the hips. With this, you can quickly improve your mobility and flexibility.

Solar Plexus Chakra

The Manipura chakra, or the solar plexus, is associated with how we view ourselves. If the solar plexus chakra is balanced, you will have willpower, high self-confidence, and belief in yourself. You will be more determined to pursue your goals.

This Chakra vibrates at a frequency of 528 Hz. Listening to music at this frequency can make you more resilient while pursuing your goals. With this, you can ease anxiety and physical tension and improve your digestive health.

Heart Chakra

The Anahata chakra, or the heart chakra, is essential in decision-making. It can help you resolve things such as family or relationship disagreements. The correct heart chakra frequencies set you for more gratitude, compassion, forgiveness, joy, and empathy. You also open your heart more to receive and give love.

The heart chakra vibrates at a deep tone of 639 Hz. This frequency will connect your mind to your most vulnerable spots. This makes it practical for you to create and maintain peaceful and healthy platonic and romantic relationships.

Throat Chakra

The Vishuddha chakra, or the throat chakra, is the center of expressing ourselves. It helps us build qualities such as clear communication skills, which include expressing ourselves well while still being able to listen and welcome other people’s opinions.

If you are afraid of expressing or standing up for yourself, you may need to activate your throat chakra, which vibrates at 741 Hz. This vibration will boost your confidence and empower you to speak and stand your truth.

On the physical side, this frequency is effectively eliminating toxins and bacterial and viral infections.

Third Eye Chakra

We associate the third eye chakra, or the Ajna, with spiritual and physical vision. This chakra gives better and stronger eyesight on the worldly and physical levels. On a spiritual level, the third eye chakra opens up our vision to allow us to connect with guidance from our higher beings.

The third eye chakra vibrates at a frequency of 852 Hz. Listening to meditation music on this frequency can help make you more open-minded to view your mind and the world from a different perspective.

Crown Chakra

The crown chakra is the one to focus on if you want to deepen your spiritual roots.

This chakra, otherwise called the Sahasrara, is excellent for:

  • Taking the ego under control;
  • Understanding ourselves better;
  • Re-connecting with our Higher-self;
  • Attuning to a Higher consciousness;
  • Strengthening our connection with God;
  • Creation of deeper connections with nature.

The crown chakra has the highest frequency on the Solfeggio scale; it has a frequency of 963 Hz. These high vibrational tones have short wavelengths that will make you more conscious of the things around you.

What Is Betrayal Trauma? The Signs and Tips to Start Healing

Published

on

What Is Betrayal Trauma Image

When someone you love and trust betrays you, it can make you doubt your sanity. Betrayal can be so traumatic you may even show early signs of PTSD. Think of the times a spouse discovers that their partner is cheating on them or into porn addiction. Or when a parent realizes a child is an alcoholic or drug addict. Such discoveries make you go through shock, denial, and other long-term emotional scars that strain the relationship. So, what is betrayal trauma? And, how can you manage and heal from it? Let’s have a detailed look.

Understanding Betrayal Trauma

Betrayal trauma occurs when people or systems we trust or rely on for survival violate that trust and emotional wellbeing. Ideally, we feel the urge to end a relationship with anyone who betrays us. Still, if you are in an attachment relationship where you rely on the betrayer to meet specific needs, walking away is not feasible.

It is this attachment to someone or an institution that you know is betraying you, that triggers deep emotional wounds. Typical examples of betrayal trauma include child neglect and abuse, sexual abuse, and infidelity between spouses.

6 Signs You Are Undergoing Betrayal Trauma

Betrayal trauma makes us question ourselves and our partners’ motives. It also triggers mood swings, irritability, memory loss, dissociation, isolation, lack of intimacy, and engaging in activities that distract us. Below are some additional tell-tale physiological, emotional, and mental signs of betrayal trauma: –

#1: Feeling Unsafe

When you identify the relationship with your spouse, friend, or workmates as a lie, the deception violates your trust. Moreover, you begin to question your judgment about other relationships you may have at the moment.

Emotional insecurity makes us: –

  • Struggle to open up on hard topics
  • Get defensive when criticized
  • Snoop around for clues or anything suspicious
  • Agreeing to everything
  • Blaming a partner for everything
  • Faking happy moments

#2: Gaslighting Partners

Narcissistic Abuse Image

Now, partners living a double life will do all they can to keep their other relationships a secret. At times, they may gaslight their spouses to make them question their perception of reality. For example, they claim you are overreacting when you ask about the numerous withdrawals from the family bank account. Likewise, they may blame you for triggering their short tempers, saying you changed after having kids.

#3: Self-Blame

Now, betrayal trauma makes us look inwards for answers. In hindsight, we end up blaming ourselves for being too busy and overlooking the red flags. You know, your partner’s sudden controlling behavior, deceit, gaslighting, verbal or physical abuse, and concerns by your friends or family members.

But since you love and trust your partner, wishful thinking and infatuation make you overlook all these tell-tale signs that something is amiss. Consequently, we blame ourselves, saying if only we were more attractive, loving, or had more money, the betrayal wouldn’t have happened.

#4: Overwhelming Secondary Guilt or Shame

If you hold a reputable leadership position in your community, church, school, or place of work, betrayal comes with overwhelming shame. Letting those around you know that you’re going through a divorce, or your child is a drug addict, or your parent is facing theft charges ruins the picture-perfect reputation you have. In addition, your feel ashamed for crying or not being strong enough for your kids during this challenging phase.

#5: Physical Distress

Typical physical signs of betrayal trauma include: –

  • Sudden panic attacks
  • Stomach distress
  • Sleep problems
  • Anxiety & depression
  • Easily prone to panic attacks by external triggers
  • Nightmares
  • Poor hygiene
  • Tiredness

Some physiological effects of betrayal trauma like tiredness and stomach upsets may resolve after a few weeks. Others like anxiety and depression can escalate into mental health complications unless addressed early.  

#6: Self-Destructive Impulses

narcissistic abuse survivor image

When undergoing betrayal trauma, you become vulnerable to negative impulses like: –

  • Having suicidal thoughts or attempts
  • Alcohol and drug misuse
  • Excessive smoking
  • Chronic self-injury like hair pulling, self-cutting, & nail-biting
  • Compulsive gambling, gaming, or shopping
  • Binge eating

Most victims know they are self-destructive. However, the urge to harm themselves is beyond their control.

Managing Betrayal Trauma

#1: Speak Up

Join community groups or online support forums and share your painful experiences with others. Doing so helps you know that you are not alone. Plus, you access valuable resources to help you cope with the trauma.

#2: Acknowledge Your Emotions

Start by forgiving yourself for being vulnerable to the abuser. Next, practice mindful meditation to help you release your negative emotions and begin your healing process. Journalizing how you feel each day will help you pinpoint the triggers in your self-harm behaviors or what you need to focus on in your healing journey.

#3: Practice Self-Love

Daily Self-Love Practices Image

Is your lifestyle self-destructive? Here are some self-love practices you can start right away: –

  • Practice clean eating
  • Quit smoking
  • Join your local gym
  • Go for a massage or forest bath
  • Take up a new hobby

Self-love helps us rediscover ourselves, boosting our self-esteem.

#4: Set Boundaries

Setting healthy boundaries after your spouse, friend, or colleague hurts you helps to achieve a sense of safety when around them. It is a necessary coping mechanism when you have no way of ending the relationship. Hence, you can: –

  • Review your expectations from the relationship
  • State what you can and cannot tolerate in the relationship
  • Discuss what you consider acceptable financial boundaries
  • Redefine how much friends and extended family can interfere with the relationship
  • Define what you consider as private

#5: Seek Professional Help

Betrayal trauma presents itself in a multilayer form that is best dealt with by an experienced professional. Indeed, an inexperienced family member may re-traumatize you by saying such things as “Did you stop getting intimate after having kids? Also, talk to an experienced family therapist or counselor about how the trauma affects your quality of life.

Conclusion

What is betrayal trauma to you? Well, if you experience an attachment injury when a friend, spouse, or colleague breaks the mutual trust you have, you may develop deep wounds that take time to heal. If your gut feelings tell your partner or parent is gaslighting you, they could be doing so to distract you from their deception. Likewise, if you feel unsafe, struggle with guilt, self-blame, or self-harm behaviors, seek professional help to heal from the trauma. Also, share your experience, rediscover yourself, and set firm boundaries to give you some peace of mind in this challenging time.
