The Anahata or Heart Chakra sits right in the middle of your chest. 

Princess Diana once said she wanted to be “The Queen of Hearts,” not a Queen of the country. 

People around the world gushed. 

The words rang true, and she became the icon for the Anahata.

People saw her as the epitome of compassion and love. 

With her unique healing quality, she left an impression deep in the hearts of the people she met.

And this essential chakra is within all of us. 

Anahata is The Home of Love

The is the place that holds love for all beings in all space across time. 

It is the place that holds your deepest emotions. 

It holds your hurt, your heartache and your compassion. 

Anahata plays a vital role in regulating energy flow within your body. 

It is much like the physical heart, which regulates the blood flow. 

But there’s a catch to the Anahata. When it is out of balance, you will lack meaningful relationships, finding yourself isolated and alone. Alternatively, you will lose your identity in relationships leaving you to feel exhausted frustrated, trying to live up to others’ expectations and needs.
