I'm Leila, I'm your online Intuitive Confidence Coach, Reiki Master and Teacher!
I love supporting women who are empaths, intuitives, healers, holistic therapists and coaches to fulfil their soul's purpose with unstoppable confidence and ease by clearing out the subconscious and energy obstacles that are in your way around your incredible abilities, making money, having success and maintaining your energy levels and health.
Over the last couple of blogs, I've been sharing what the chakras are and how Reiki can be used to clear, balance and maintain your chakras-you can catch up with them here if you haven't read them already!
What and where is the heart chakra?
The heart chakra is the 4th, the centrepoint of the seven chakras within the body. It is known to be located at the level of your physical heart, but in the centre the body. The heart chakra is the bridge between the spiritual, intuitive energy (throat, third eye and crown chakras) and the physical, material, reality energy (the solar plexus, sacral and root chakras).
Chakras are most commonly associated with being shaped like two inverted funnels; the widest part pointing out, the narrowest part pointing towards the body, front and back. In the case of the heart chakra, there are two energy funnels to the heart chakra, front and back, representing giving and receiving energy vibrations.
The heart chakra is powerfully connected to the energy vibrations of love, gratitude, forgiveness, joy and passion when energy flows through a clear and balanced heart chakra. You will be compassionate, emotional fulfilled and happy, you will love deeply, with trust, peace and calm.
When imbalanced or blocked, the vibration may be one of depression, jealousy, sadness, grief, and loneliness. You may feel shy, codependent, always need validation of how good a person you are, have low self-esteem, or difficulty letting go.
Five ways to clear your heart chakra:
Love: Love like your life depends on it, because it does! Giving love and expressing your love in as many ways as you can think of is a powerful way to clear your heart chakra. A physical touch, a kind word, a random act of kindness, whatever feels good to you, give love in that way!
Emotions: Be open and willing to be with your emotions whenever they come up to be seen. Be honest with yourself and how you feel, don't hold in emotions, or hide them.
Forgiveness: Practicing forgiveness is a powerful way to clear your heart chakra, which is a potential storehouse for emotions, resolved and unresolved. Practicing letting go, forgiving anyone or anything that you feel has done wrong to you and sending love out from your heart chakra will release and relieve your whole mind, body and spirit.
Colour: Green is the most associated colour with the heart chakra. Wearing green clothing, jewellery, scarves will help clear and balance your heart chakra, as will getting out in nature, eating green (and heart shaped) fruit and vegetables!
Gratitude: Express gratitude for everything and anything in your life. An attitude of gratitude will consistently maintain a balanced heart chakra and invokes feelings of love and joy.
Here's a powerful affirmation to support your heart chakra:
I give, I love, I let go, I receive.

Next time, I'll be focusing on chakra number 5, the throat chakra!
Teaching about the chakras is part of my upcoming Reiki Level I & II Course and as a Reiki Master and Teacher, I don't think there has been a day since I've been attuned to Reiki that I haven't used Reiki or worked with my chakras in some way. It really has become a way of life for me and I hope it can for you too!
