Heart Chakra aka Anahata In Sanskrit: Body Anatomy

Heart Chakra
(Last Updated On: November 26, 2018)

Heart ChakraNow was the turn of pectoralis minor.

It was the fourth chakra, the heart chakra called Anahata in Sanskrit; its body anatomy ready to dissolve itself by dissolving the frozen shoulder that a contracted pectoralis minor had caused through all the years of keeping the shoulders stiff to a considerable extent.

Frozen shoulder tends to push us forward, generating a forward slouch in the shoulders narrowing the chest and, in the process, heart also.

Our slouching shoulders give us a defensive stance against a stranger that we find almost everyone of our fellow humans around.

We are living in a world full of enemies around, each one of us searching for friends who are nothing but illusions even when we feel we have got a few of them!

The moment one’s self-oriented motives clash with those of even the closest friends, one doesn’t hesitate stabbing them in their back.

A frozen shoulder doesn’t let us remain a big-hearted person.

PectoralsThe Pectoralis minor is a thin, triangular muscle, situated at the upper part of the chest, beneath the Pectoralis major.

It depresses the point of the shoulder, drawing the scapula inferior and medial, towards the thorax, and throwing its inferior angle posteriorly.

As the chakra opened, it pushed the elbows away from keeping touching the ribs on the outer sides of the thoracic diaphragm.

The chest went wider horizontally, increasing the distance between the two nipples.

The scapulae in the back postured themselves a little closer to each other.

Again in this maneuver too, the care was to be taken that the hips would not push them forward as well as the thoracic diaphragm would not drop itself DOWN or else squeeze itself IN; or else the entire maneuver would go distorted.

This was the most precise heart chakra meditation that took care of the thoracic cavity just like the other body chakras, i.e., the sacral and the solar plexus chakras had taken, of the abdominal; and the root chakra, of the pelvic. Also these were the heart chakra opening symptoms that this step by step process of the seven chakras meditation was showing up to be.

We shall talk about the effects of opening the fourth chakra, i.e., the heart chakra or Anahata on the physiology of various different systems connected with the area of its location in our next blog post to come.

Chakra HealerSince many people asked me for it, I have started opening chakras professionally, through training people by re-posturing their bodies for good. I offer Single-Person Chakra Opening Workshops for the same at my center comprising two 8-hour sessions on two consecutive days.

Opening chakras tends to eradicate chronic lifestyle diseases like obesity, eye vision problems, constipation, sex problems, back pains, breathing problems, heart condition, hormonal imbalance, hypertension, spondylitis and chronic headaches to name a few.

Opening chakras also tends to unblock the flow of Kundalini through its spinal path in the body, thus spiritually uplifting the level of energy that both, the body and the mind, stay at; taking care of almost all the psychological problems which the majority of humanity is afflicted with, today.

And the good news is that it works at any and every age. Age is simply no bar at all!

Give me a call or email me on gbsingh@7chakras.org to contact for the workshop.
