Working with The Color Green and The Heart Chakra
Green is the color of energy and abundance, of nature, of apples and pears, of limes, of broccoli, kale, spinach, peas and beans, of balance and harmony, of growth and money, of jade and malachite Green presents in so many shades and hews. As I look out my window I can count at least 20 varying shades and tones of green.
Green is the color of the fourth chakra, our heart chakra and love centre. The heart chakra is related to our ability to love and is a source of compassion, kindness and affection. When our heart chakra is in balance and we are accepting of ourself and others, our self-esteem is healthy and our vibes are high: We Feel Good.
This post is part of a Color Prescription series I started over 2 years ago , just before I experienced the autoimmune disease that put me out of action with a total kidney failure. I had painted a series of paintings which you can see in the video and I have added some that I have painted since then.
I reflected back on stopping this series at the heart chakra: I did have a draft back in July 2011! The message that I got back 2 years ago was that this journey for me was all about love, when I fractured my humerus in January 2012, it was in line with my heart chakra, as was my crush fracture. Seem the universe was making sure this time I slowed down enough to get the message!
I have had time to look closely at my own love path as well as observe others wanting to raise their love vibes.
Here are 7 ways I have found that help in opening the heart chakra:
Be Love: love and accept you as you are NOW!
Be KInd: watch the thoughts you think and the words you speak about yourself
Love others unconditionally- this becomes easier the more we love ourselves and release any need to beat up on ourself:)
Go out in nature, lay on the grass and watch the clouds drift by.
Treat yourself- soak in a lavender bubble bath
Breathe- deep breathing releases toxins and blocked energy
What do you do on a daily basis to keep your Heart Chakra open ?
