When we talk about the 7 chakras we should always keep in mind the scheme of our microcosm. Today every spiritual seeker knows that there are seven main chakras - also described as energy centers or wheels of light - but little is known about their deeper spiritual and metaphysical significance. An important point that needs to be understood is that the very same energy vibrates on all of these seven energy levels. However, when this energy reaches the energy centers, it is being transformed accordingly, so that different qualities of that particular wheel of light are attained
The fourth energy center is located close to the physical heart. In the Eastern tradition, the name of this center is Anahata.Anahata is the center of self-love, but at the same time this energy center sustains a number of altruistic feelings, such as joy, fascination, enthusiasm, tenderness, admiration, rapture, tenderness and respect.
When the heart is open, love is at work. Every positive emotion has its opposite, negative emotion: love-hate, joy-pain, and so on. When your energy flows in and out of the heart chakra, you are capable of expressing various emotions. All emotions are good and should not be suppressed. If you block the pain, you simultaneously block the joy. In order to be able to maintain the sequence of positive emotions, you will have to allow the possibility of feeling some negative emotions as well.
Each of the points of this star is divided into two fields of action, contributing to a total of 12 vibrational fields. The12 subtle energies of this energy center are much finer egoistic sensations: jealousy, possessiveness, false sense of protection, longing, anxiety, melancholy, concern, uncertainty, anticipation, timidity, milder forms of depression and empathy.
In order to balance this chakra, avoid the extremes and, whenever you can, try to reconcile the opposites.Temperance is the best choice for leading a healthy and successful life. It is important to know that in order for the energy of the heart center to become selfless, it has to pass through the fifth, Throat chakra. If your energy goes only up to the level of the heart, your love will have the quality of infatuation – you will be unbalanced, possessive and obsessed. Your mood will change from extreme happiness to extreme sadness, which is typical for someone being in love.
