Chakras are energy centers in the body that hold secrets for living our lives in more whole and balanced ways.
Unlock your HEART today: this energy center, located in the middle of the chest, has much to teach us about empathy, unconditional love, compassion, and connection. Remember the scene in Dr. Seuss‘s How the Grinch Stole Christmas, when the Grinch’s heart (that was two sizes too small) grew? The HEART chakra is always willing to grow and to open wide.
Today might be a good day to give a little thought to the people (or companion animals, or plants) that you love unconditionally, simply appreciating these presences in your life. Now take a moment to appreciate your own self, all the unique gifts and qualities–and human flaws–that make up who you are. Some of us find it easy to love others unconditionally, but difficult to extend compassion to ourselves. Allow yourself to imagine feeling that you are lovable just as you are. It’s a sure way to encourage your heart to grow.
