Location: Centre of chest, at end of sternum.
This beautiful chakra is all about love, kindness and affection. When open, you will be friendly and compassionate and will foster harmonious relationships. If under-active, you will be cold and distant and if overactive, you will be overbearing in the love department.
The spiritual lessons Anahata wants to teach us are about compassion, forgiveness, trust and unconditional love. A fourth chakra that is too open will lead a person into being too giving; generous to a fault. If it is too closed, it may lead a person into lacking compassion and empathy. One needs to strike the perfect balance between self-love and the love of others.
