The heart chakra is known as “Anahata” in Sanskrit, which means “unhurt or unstruck”. You will find this at the center of your chest and people often associate this with the air element. The air we breathe is everywhere and so is love.

How does it feel when your heart chakra opens
Firstly, you will have an inner sense of positivity and positive energy. Secondly, your heart chakra will allow you to become more compassionate and forgiving.
The main reason why we get sick and our energy becomes negative is because we do not recognize the source of our feelings. Only by integrating positive energies in our life can we have a higher level of energy and balance. By practicing “turning negative” can allow us to get out of the rut we find ourselves in and start to move forward.
Another way to activate your heart chakra is to practice meditation on an empty stomach. Although you may experience physical hunger, you should try and go to sleep soon after you wake up and then complete the reflection, to help your body heal itself.
Having a full stomach while you are asleep allows you to do this process in a conscious state. Some people even ask their doctor to let them practice meditation in bed. By doing this, you will be able to experience an entirely new level of energy that enables you to access your true self.
An open heart chakra makes you better understand yourself and meet your and others’ needs. This helps you open yourself up for love and making you more forgiving to move past negative emotions. AN open heart chakra makes it work in harmony with the other primary energy centers.
