What is the Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is the 4th chakra and is the beginning of one entering the next world for them (in a spiritual sense) and is one of awakening.
You use this chakra for loving in a new way and it allows you to see things in a new way. It can be seen as the stage of life where an adult begins to see new, more mature beginnings.
It is a higher frequency that can be obtained by loving to live and going beyond the solar plexus chakra. This is after the rest that occurs in the solar plexus chakra. It is where we begin to realize our true selves and where we begin to love more.
The heart chakra is one of my favorites because it is where you can begin to see help from a higher place appear in your life and begin to understand it. The heart chakra can also be thought of as new, more mature beginnings for an adult.
I personify this chakra with the word “mercy” as it is one that gives you the ability to love and forgive in new ways. This chakra is associated with the color green, spiritual growth, connectedness.
Mastering this chakra will allow you to forgive yourself and others and enable healing on a spiritual level.

When Do You Use the Heart Chakra
You use the heart chakra whenever you are beginning to understand the world in new ways. Once you have developed yourself in physical ways with the lower chakras, it is time to develop yourself in spiritual ways with the higher chakras, such as the heart chakra.
You will find that everything you do is a part of chakra, having forgiveness for others and most importantly, yourself will use this chakra. When you love to live, you will begin to use this chakra and will begin to grow spiritually.
For some people, this will occur in your mid 20’s. Spiritual growth is meant to heal you from pains that have occurred during your life and allows you to move on from things that hurt you.
What Is the Heart Chakra Associated With
The heart chakra is associated with the color green and spiritual growth. I associate it with “Mercy” and think of healing.
This chakra is where you begin to heal your life. It is also associated with a higher world as it is after a change in chakra nature from physical to spiritual growth.
How to Balance the Heart Chakra
In my experiences, chakra is always balanced if you believe it to be so. Make sure to live your life in a normal, natural way and you will always find balance as that is the nature of life.
If balance is what you seek, balance is what you will get! You will get what you wanted! Make sure to think about what matters to you and make sure it is a good thing! What is right for me? Whatever works for you.
For higher chakras, you might want to strengthen them, and I find meditation is the best way to do this. You will know when it is right for you when it is time.
Signs that your Heart Chakra is Unbalanced
If you are feeling disconnected from others or bitterness, this chakra could be unbalanced and need healing.
How Long Does It Take to Develop the Heart Chakra
The heart chakra takes the longest to develop of the higher chakras as it is the fourth frequency. Each chakra after the root chakra takes successively less time to develop as they are higher and higher frequencies, hence the color.
You can expect this chakra to take around 4-5 years to develop, so if you think you are here, the best thing to do is simply think of your future and you will develop it inherently. It is important to be natural and true to yourself to develop your chakras and true self will be revealed.
Heart Chakra Frequency
639 Hz is the recommended heart chakra frequency for heart chakra meditation.
