A Guide to your Galaxy Part 4: Anhata – the heart chakra
DEEP breathe IN… and out…. Let’s slow down and focus on our heart chakra.

Galaxy Guide - Heart Chakra

4th - Heart Chakra

Connected to harmony, love and inner peace, the Heart Chakra revolves around the heart, thymus gland, lower lung and circulatory system. Being the balancing point for all chakras, it is located in the center of our sternum. When harmonized this chakra allows for freedom, growth and inner peace. Through practicing active yoga, flying a kite on a breezy day or openly showing L.O.V.E., you can open and expand the heart chakra using the element of air. Eating green coloured foods such as leafy vegetables like spinach and kale, enjoying broccoli, peas, pears, grapes and avocados or drinking green tea is said to aid in this as well.

Crystal Therapy TIP

Wearing / surround yourself with green stones or crystals such as jade, malachite, emerald, aventurine or peridot to promote alignment of the heart chakra.


I LOVE myself. Love is the answer to everything in life, and I give and receive love effortlessly and unconditionally

Chakra Mudra

Vayu – Curl your right index finger in to the base of your straightened thumb, leaving the rest of your fingers straight. Place your hand at the lower part of your breast bone. Chant the bij sound YAM


Visualize a green rosebud at the center of your chest. Steady your breath. Allow the rosebud to open with each inhale and exhale. See the petals unfolding, one by one. See this openness while also letting go of any negative energy or emotion that was locked in the bud. Be patient as you slowly bloom.
