Opening our Anahata chakra means opening ourselves to the universe. Opening a huge space for love in our lives, by loving others and letting us be loved. We can easily put together few simple actions into the daily routine that will lead us to a happier life.
Here are 5 simple ways to make it happen:
1. Surround yourself with green
The color of the Anahata chakra is green while being surrounded by it, eating it, wearing it and thinking about it will help it shine its own green light brighter. This is by far the easiest way.
2. Heart opening asanas
To free its maximum potential, the chakra of the heart needs wide space. And what would be a better way to make space in our chest than with heart opening asanas in our daily yoga routine.
Some of these are: Anahatasana, Bhujangasana, Urdhva Dhanurasana, Ustrasana, and many others.
3. Meditate on your heart
Meditation is a really strong way to improve anything you want. If you turn your meditation into a loving practice it will definitely open your heart.
4. Find a mantra for your heart
While meditating, before your yoga practice or whenever you want to you can also sing mantas focused in love and it will help you open your heart.
A beautiful mantra for love and peace that will definitely open Anahata is “Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu”.
“May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”
Here’s an example on YouTube:
5. Meditate on “Yam”
“Yam” is the syllable of the Anahata Chakra, while meditating on it and also by singing it as a mantra, your heart chakra will be stimulated and you will notice how it help you.
Also, any time you’re feeling stress or in a situation really overwhelming, just take a few moments to breath deep and repeat to yourself “yam”.
These are only 5 simple ways to open your anahata chakra, but there are many others. The most effective is BE KIND TO OTHERS AND TO YOURSELF. Love and kindness will always open your heart chakra, and be sure that these will only bring you amazing things in life.
