  • Distant healing – When you are healing others, set your intention to heal Heart chakra and also you can chant affirmation on their behalf.
  • Meditation – Meditate on the chakra. Visualize a vibrant green ball spinning clockwise, absorbing all the blockages and transmuting it to divine positive energies to energise and balance your chakra.
  • Crystal healing – Take any of the Heart chakra stones and program it with its chakra affirmation, mantra or intention to balance Heart chakra. Lie down and simply place the stone on Heart chakra for 20 minutes or carry the stone around with you. Alternatively, you can give Reiki by hovering your hands over the chakra stones.
  • Water – Hold water bottle between palms. Set the intention to cleanse, activate and balance the chakra. Chant Heart chakra affirmation minimum 28 times while giving Reiki.
