What is the High Heart Chakra?
Halfway between the heart and throat chakras lies an often times bypassed energy centre, the “higher heart” or “chakra 4.5”, which ties the frequency of these two areas together in a harmonious and powerful way.
In the human body, the High Heart Chakra is located behind the breast bone, connected with the thymus gland.
It is identified by the colour pink and associated with the element of fire. It is the reflex centre to higher consciousness and unconditional love, and love for the divine. This encapsulates emotions of acceptance, inner peace and compassion.
Why I Chose the High Heart Chakra for my Logo
I love activating the High Heart Chakra for my clients in their first reiki session, as they discover the love within. It is my favourite chakra and represents a very important meaning, which is why I chose this symbol to represent my brand logo.
This chakra is where you can build the connection between reality and your dreams. It is where our meaning for life exists, and where we marry emotion and reason – which we express through language – therefore, making it the birthplace of intent.
While it is a minor (smaller) chakra, it contributes a big role within the collective energy during this time of ascension on the planet, especially with all the division/separation that’s happening in our world.
This is also why I use sound therapy in my reiki sessions as it can open the higher heart. It is important to be mindful of exposing yourself to positive sounds, and minimizing negative, low frequency sounds.
As we move through this shift to the New Earth consciousness, we all desperately need this chakra to be activated, to have the awareness of its role in our energy body and help contribute to more unconditional love in humanity and our overall well-being.
The Physio-Energetic Connection
When your High Heart Chakra is balanced, you are able to express unconditional love towards yourself, others and Divine Source. You have a healthy connection with divinity, while remaining grounded in your humanity.
When your High Heart Chakra is out of balance, you may not be able to express unconditional love. You may also experience extreme openness whereby you become ungrounded. This could also manifest in being so wrapped up in the spiritual world that you ignore those around you. You may also experience low vibrational emotions and be afraid of spiritual realms, or too set in pushing it away if your higher heart is blocked. You may also feel that life is purposeless and meaningless if this chakra is blocked.
The Body part associated with this chakra, the thymus gland, plays a huge part in your body’s immunological defense system. The thymus helps protect the body against infection and disease by stimulating the production of white blood cells.
What I Use for High Heart Activation
Crystals: Rose Quartz or Turquoise over the high heart.
Essential Oils: The Heart Chakra corresponds with Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Lavender, Frankincense, Black Pepper, and Ginger.
Activities That Can Strengthen This Chakra
- Eating foods and/or drinks that carry the energy of the colour pink, such as berry smoothies, grapefruit, etc.
- Using rose water on a daily basis (sip rose water, or use as a facial toner)
- Wearing the colour pink as clothing or in the form of crystals, i.e. jewelry
- High heart chakra meditations with crystals, incense, and essential oils
Daily affirmations that focus on self-love and communicating with intent can be extremely helpful. Daily choices that involve self love can be mastered; it will also show up as love towards others.
