By understanding your heart chakra and creating personalized blends, it can offer great aid in your healing journey. When it comes to chakra healing, don’t rely on just one method. Besides meditations, affirmations you can also try inner work exercises to help heal any past wounds and traumas that might be holding back your heart chakra.

What are some tools you use in your own healing journey? Is there anything that helps you be more loving and compassionate to yourself and others? Personally I benefited in the past from the Isha Krya meditation as well as from the Chit Shakti meditation from Sadhguru.
