Part four of mindbodygreen's Chakra Series dives into the heart, the center of the seven chakras and perhaps the one to which even the biggest skeptic can relate. Because let's face it: we're all familiar with matters of the heart.
When our Heart Chakra (Anahata) is blocked, we get stuck in our relationships (romantic and otherwise), and lose our ability to follow our true calling. We begin listening to our busy head more than our heart, for fear of following its true desires.
Helpful healing tip: Meditate on the mantra YAM, the primordial sound to invoke the element of air.
