Your Heart Chakra, is your fourth energy center, and is the bridge that unites the mind, body and spirit. When this chakra is open you’re able to easily give and receive love, forgive and be compassionate towards yourself and others. If it’s blocked, it can cause your chakras to be out of alignment affecting your ability to easily have those experiences. When this happens, using an affirmation can help. We’ve created this list of 20 powerful heart chakra affirmations to help you open, heal and rebalance your heart chakra.

A Few Tips On How To Use Affirmations For Heart Chakra Healing
- To get started with using affirmations to heal and balance your chakra’s it’s helpful to imagine and focus on each chakra individually. Your heart chakra, is in the middle of your chest, as you say your affirmation imagine a beautiful green or pink light in the shape of a wheel circulating clock wise as it clears and cleanses out the old trapped energy. Imagine the light getting brighter and radiating more and more light.
- As you say your affirmations, call up a feeling of love and let it flow through to your heart centre, then let it radiate and flow through your entire being,and body.
- Use a simplified and gentle EFT (emotional freedom technique), by tapping lightly in the middle of your chest as you repeat your affirmations.

- The loving kindness meditation, helps to open up the heart by cultivating the four qualities of love: friendliness (Metta), compassion (Karuna), appreciative joy (Mudita), and equanimity (Upekkha) for ourselves and others.

5. Crystal Healing
- Meditate, wear or put around your home – pink or green crystals such as Aventurine, Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Malachite, Rhodonite, Emerald or Green Fluorite.
6. Practice Forgiveness
- Not being able to let go of the trapped emotions of the past is one of the biggest blocks to experiencing a loving present moment. Take steps to clear and let go of old past hurts, anger and regrets. Letting go doesn’t mean that what happened was ok, it just means you are no longer carrying your past into the future with you.
- Read a helpful book – One of my favourites is Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza, he talks alot about our emotional addictions and gives helpful advice and meditations to help overcome them. Check it out on Amazon here.
- Do a forgiveness ritual – a simple one is to write down what happened on a piece of paper, why you are angry, what you wished would’ve happened, what you have learned and how you are now willing to let it go. Meditate on it, light a candle then burn the letter (in a fire proof bowl outside) or rip it up.
7. Essential Oils
8. Yoga Poses
Try heart charka opening yoga poses such as eagle, camel, wheel and cobra.
9. Let Your Heart Be Light
10. Be Love
Love, love, love then love some more! Practice love, and opening up to giving and receiving unconditional love to yourself and to others.
When the heart chakra is in balance it is a beautiful feeling. Being able to give and receive love and experience the world more joyfully is something we all deserve to feel.
