The Sanskrit name for the Heart Chakra is Anahata and the lotus with 12 petals. In addition, the color green represents this chakra. One benefit of this Chakra is the energy bridge connecting the lower chakras and the upper chakras.
The green symbolic color of the 4th Chakra grows all around us on our big, beautiful earth. For some, it symbolizes the vitality of life energy and also financial income. Green is also symbolic of resurrection which we see each Spring.
Colors are an important part of the human psychological and spiritual experience that dates back beyond written history. Traditionally, green is the color of the Heart Chakra which helps us with our emotions, our compassion, and our empathy towards ourselves and others. A nice and effective way is to use it in meditation.
Bring the Outside In
It is usually preferred by most to go outside and enjoy the greenery first hand. But it is also a great suggestion to bring the outside in. Do this with the use of houseplants, windows, lighting, and other easy to access items around your home.
We all want a healthy, breathable intimate environment. House plants are the fastest, easiest way to bring the healthy greenery of nature into our homes.
This color soothes and aids in the human digestive process. For healthy results, I recommend that we eat peas and other green and leafy vegetables. Healthy green veggies such as kale, spinach, chard, and collards is considered by many to be the most nutritious food you can eat.
They’re packed with vitamins A, B, and K. In addition, they are also rich in essential minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium, as well as antioxidants, which protect cells against damage. Green is the symbolic color for wholesome, healthy meals.🌿
When you add green to your intimate environment, you do yourself a big favor. If you want a living space that helps you feel balanced, healthy, and youthful, decorate your home with touches of green. Many cultures in the world see green as a sign of progress, thus the phrase, “give it a green light”.

How the Green Heart Chakra Affects Human Behavior
Green is a combination of blue and yellow and is soothing yet stimulating enough to produce an emotional lift. Moreover, green is the predominant color of Mother Nature so it is associated with growth, process, and the beginning of life itself. Conversely, because of it’s social association with money and good luck it can also produce envy, i.e., the phrase, “green with envy”.

Move Into a Creative State of Mind
When listening to this heart chakra music, it moves you into a slow, creative state-of-mind. This energy gently nudges you away from draining competitive tasks until you feel a positive flow of energy that takes you with it.
As you continue to learn, resistance to the flow is what causes you to feel like there is a force to do something you don’t want to do. When the flow is strong around you or perhaps you’re more aware, then the ordinary tasks become irritable and you feel a strong pull to follow a different path of action.
Healing Heart Music
This meditation music is so effective! I’ve been sitting here working online while this video is playing and at the same time, I’m sitting underneath my wonderful OttLite floor lamp. So pleased to report that the combination is sweet. Between the two, I am completely relaxed and the creativity is flowing. It actually reminds me of a phrase, “too blessed to be stressed”!
