Love is given and received through the energy center, also known as the heart chakra. The heart chakra is basically what you think it is, everything dealing with the heart. Are you feeling loved and are you loving back?
Balance in the heart is very important, and without a healthy balance a lot of couples will struggle with an unjust balanced of one partner loving more than the other and a built of resentment or exhaustion from being a give, give, giving without any reciprocation.
The heart chakra doesn’t only deal with love with your intimate partners but with family, friends, and yourself. Everyone wants to feel loved. You yearn for self-love your whole life as well, and that very closely is correlated to the energy near the heart chakra.
It is important to open your heart and be mindful of how you give and receive love. Most people keep their heart closed due to painful past circumstances and the fear of vulnerability, but vulnerability is not a weakness but a strength and if you are never completely vulnerable your heart won’t be truly open to it’s full potential of love. Learn to open yourself up to unconditional love and compassion.
You deserve love!
