This chakra is involved in issues of love (for others and for oneself), compassion and inner peace.
It is located just above the heart and is linked with the colours pink and green.
This chakra connects and heals the other chakras.
When overactive, you may be giving too much of yourself to others, resulting in self-exploitation.
An underactive heart chakra can be seen when one is emotionally distant, unable to feel love for or connection to others, one’s environment or oneself.
Identifying and acknowledging your emotions can help to rebalance this chakra.
Meditations based on loving-kindness can also be very useful.
