Chakra Anatomy

What is the meaning of heart chakra color on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels? Explore green, the color of the heart chakra in depth, learn what it means and what it represents.

Green color is composed of yellow and blue in equal parts. Green is a color of love. It is at the very center of your being. The heart center.

Green is the energy of love and transformation. It allows you to transform your ego and the needs of your lower chakras and open up to love.

To become more loving and compassionate.

It is at the heart center where the energies of lower chakras (once the needs are fulfilled and satisfied) can be transformed and integrated into a more spiritual aspect of yourself.

This is where you reach beyond yourself and connect with something greater, wider, and deeper.

Green is the color of growth, life, and balance. Through balance you find this center from which you can love, form healthy and nourishing relationships, and give and receive love.

The energy of green is soothing and calming, like a blanket of soft grass underneath your feet. It is the color of nature, grass, and the trees.

As you unfold the petals of your heart chakra, you find the seat of compassion, not only for others, but for yourself as well. You begin to radiate love. You begin to sense the interconnectedness of all of life.

Love and the energy of fear

"We teach what we want to learn, and I want to learn to experience inner peace", writes Jerald Jampolsky in his classic "Love is Letting go of Fear".

The essence of his book is based on the basic teachings of the "Course in Miracles". One of these teachings is that there are only two emotions: Love and Fear.

You can't feel Fear and Love at the same time. You either feel one or the other.

When you feel fear, you can't feel love. And when you feel love, you can't feel fear.

You can always choose love. You can always choose the energy of heart chakra color.

For me this is the most important thought to remember. That I have a choice. It's not that I don't get sad, fearful, or depressed. But, I catch myself and I consciously choose to change my feelings.

When I am experiencing fear, I focus on opening my heart and visualizing green energy coming to my heart centre. Once the energy begins to flow, the fear dissolves.

Do you believe you have a choice to change your feelings? let me know.

What others said....

Green fills my soul with a longing for the forest. It evokes the scent of freshly dropped pine needles, and I can feel the spongy surface of the forest floor beneath my feet. Looking at the color green – whether it is on a shirt I am wearing, a car driving down the street, or the leaves on the trees growing outside my window – I am reminded of our good planet and the splendid life that resides upon it. With every glance at this emerald hue, I wish to head outdoors and rekindle my relationship with nature.

Green ...that's my favourite color. I love the color. While picking my clothes most of the times I choose the green ones. I associate green with peace prosperity and growth. I love the people who like green. Green reminds me of my schoold days where I chose green as my badge from my kindergarten to my tenth class. Its such a nice color, it gives a good feel whenever we see it. The flower shamrocks is green which means pure luck - I always hold a dry shamrock in my handpurse.

The color green is one of my favorite colors. Green makes me think of money and I love money! Green also makes me think of slime from the nickeldon channel. Green is the color of most antifreeze in cars. I love Green gumballs! Green jello is also very good. Green is also the universal color for being horny on a mood ring!

Green is my favorite color but more of a lime green, makes me think of growth and peace and hope. After a forest fire seeing the small green buds of plants coming back taking destruction and bringing life again. My bedroom walls are green too, I suppose that means my heart chakra is the most open. ~Jasmine
