Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
Mastering chakras is a powerful tool for meditation and yoga practices.
A chakra is a physical basis for spiritual energy that flows through each part of the body. When you align chakras through yoga and meditation, you are keeping them open and fluid.
This is symbolic as well as physically beneficial. Monitoring the balance of your chakras involves mindfulness and enhanced awareness.

Today Anahata will caught full attention. Because is our heart chakra, which is the bridge of our physical matter to our subtle body. In others words the fusion of earth with heaven.
Anahata Chakra (In Sanskrit means unhurt and unbeaten) which should be the main goal of taking so much care of this important area within our bodies.
The heart chakra is developed as emotional issues are resolved and integrated.
An action that the unique University of Life, will provide with an individual degree:
In heart-centered consciousness, mind, body, and spirit are seen as facets of a human being which can all achieve balance and wholeness.
Thus, the heart is the gateway to spiritual consciousness because the more it expands, the more we develop spiritual awareness.
• If you find yourself having problems in your relationships or feeling unattached to the people you love, it may indicate that your heart chakra is weak.
• If your heart chakra is overactive, you may find yourself becoming too attached to things, resulting in you being overly emotional all the time.
Try meditating with green and pink heart chakra stones (you can see some examples of them above), such as Chrysoprase, Aventurine, Rose Quartz or Rhodonite, over your heart to open it up to all types of love.
Once your heart chakra becomes realigned, you radiate love of all kinds.
Your relationships will begin to strengthen again and you will feel hopeful.
By keeping in mind that the heart is a central place in our body where resides joy, love, warmth and compassion, will help you understand this.
As mentioned above, this is the bridge which scopes us in;
• freeing self to fall in love
• fall in love with self at first and the fall in love with others
Hence, is like a railroad for a train for availability to execute its function of transportation.
An opened Anahata (Heart):
When you find people extremely compassionate and filled with tremendous love and empathy for everyone, it’s a sign of a heart chakra opened.
The opposite case/ A blocked Anahata:
Is represented by:
• person who fails to accept love
• suffers with pain and grief and keeps himself away from the crowd and drags self to a phase of extreme loneliness and hibernation ( like a friend of mine would say).
* To feel the best of love in and around you, it is needed for you to work on opening the heart chakra or the Anahata chakra.
