If you recognize in yourself some of the symptoms of an imbalanced fourth chakra, there are many things you can do to help restore it to balance. Here are some steps you can take to heal your heart chakra:

  1. Cultivate habits of self-care. Good health is often taken for granted. When we are spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically strong, we are able to do so much more for those we love. Taking proper care of oneself is a necessary prerequisite to loving and helping others.
  2. Practice loving-kindness meditation. Known in Pali as metta-bhavanathis type of meditation focuses on developing love and compassion for oneself and others. It is a highly effective tool for improving loving relationships.
  3. See a marriage / relationship counselor. Pre-marital counseling is an often overlooked but valuable step for serious couples contemplating marriage. Or if you’re already in a committed relationship, couples counseling can help you identify unhealthy behavior patterns that are ruining your marriage. Single people who have difficulty with intimate relationships can also benefit from seeing an experienced relationship counselor.
  4. Practice pranayama. Pranayama is a health practice originating in India that involves different types of controlled breathing exercises. It is a very powerful technique for calming and soothing the mind and body, and it also enhances mental clarity.
  5. Start a gratitude journal. A gratitude journal is a great practice for opening your heart to receive love, which can be challenging for people with an imbalanced fourth chakra.

Below, we list affirmations which help to strengthen and nourish the fourth chakra. In addition, chanting and meditating on the Sanskrit syllable, YAM (pronounced like “yum-my” with a nasal intonation on the “m”) will balance this chakra. You can also try out chakra meditation.
