What's Love Got To Do with It?
In our society as we know it today, we are obsessed with the idea of love. Think of the endless list of movies, television shows, books, songs (pull up America's Top 40 and see how many of them are talking about love), and so many more examples.
While love rests in our fourth chakra, this "love," an overly sensationalized and confusing emotion, is not what we are talking about. The love that we are reconnecting with is not a love that is earned or sought after, but rather the love that we are rightfully born with and entitled to. It is unconditional and everlasting.
Unfortunately, many individuals have been damaged by a convoluted love, be it from a family member, friend, romantic partner, etc. Today, we are talking about what it is that are heart chakra deserves as well as methods, exercises, and tips to reclaim that dazzling green gem residing within ourselves.
Anahata: reclaiming our right to love and be loved
On the other hand, individuals may have an excess heart chakra. These are individuals who never say no (who may even fear to say no), give recklessly, or who needs to be friends with everyone. People with these traits often do not understand rejection and take rejection very personally. Individuals with an excess heart chakra have the tendency to manifest these behavior due to poor grounding and self-acceptance. The mentality is often times, "If I do x, y, and z for this person/these people, I will be loved." If you feel that you exhibit these traits, I recommend you read my blog on the root chakra as well.

The chakras, put simply, are our energy centers. Lined up our spine, we have seven main chakras, beginning at our tailbone (our root), stacking all the way up to the crown of our head.
