What is Heart Chakra? 

The Heart Chakra is the most significant part of the Chakra wheel, which governs your relationship and other close relationships. It is located between the throat chakra and the solar plexus chakra in the centre of the heart. However, the colour green is associated with the Heart Chakra, attracting love, compassion, harming and balance with your loved ones.

However, the word that refers to the heart chakra in Sanskrit is Anahata, meaning unstruck to take off while leaving the ground. To explain in simple terms, it means to leave behind all the past trauma and toxic relationships. 

Additionally, the symbol of the Heart chakra symbolises the peaceful and calming sound effect that comes while rotating the chakra wheel. Also, this chakra is related to the element Air (Vayu). However, as this chakra is associated with Air, it’s believed that if the Air around us is not fresh, our Heart Chakra can be blocked and inactive.
