Chakra Earrings – Heart Chakra, Green Enamel, 4th
The Hindu word for the fourth chakra is Anahata. It is positioned at the heart center of the chest. Made of sterling silver and enamel and approximately 1/2″ diameter in size, these Jeffrey David earrings were inspired by a Hindu design that is useful for balancing the heart chakra.
When in balance the heart chakra gives one a sense of connection to other people. There is allowance for honest emotional expression in oneself and others. Compassion and understanding make it easy to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and have empathy for all living creatures. If one feels disconnected from fellow humans, indifference and callousness may close down this energy center, resulting in loneliness and a sense of isolation. A bleeding heart or over-identification with the problems of others may also indicate that this chakra is not functioning properly. Possible physical effects of imbalance manifest in the heart, breasts, upper spine, shoulders and respiratory system.
To help balance the heart chakra it is necessary to forgive old hurts and let go of anger and resentment. Yes, it is easier said than done but gives one true freedom from the past and a clear place from which to relate with others. As self-love is also important, look in the mirror and say “I Love You” to your reflection. This is a simple but powerful exercise. Another technique to bring this chakra into balance is to relax oneself and visualize the color green while repeating the Hindu chant YAM. Hold your intention in your heart center and allow the sound to vibrate there. This will energize the heart chakra. Wearing the sterling silver Jeffrey David earrings will give further benefit. Gemstones that resonate on a harmonious frequency with the 4th chakra are rose quartz, ruby, green jade and pink tourmaline. The representative color is green and is symbolic of the element air.
