If You Struggle With Love, Here Are 3 Ways To Unblock Your Heart Chakra

Three simple ways to unblock your heart chakra.

If You Struggle With Love, Here Are 3 Ways To Unblock Your Heart Chakra

Chakra is the term used to describe the seven energies in your body. The seven chakras are root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third-eye, and crown. When a chakra is "blocked" in your body it can affect you in many ways. Now while not everyone has the same chakra's blocked or unblocked, when I talked to some of my girlfriends I realized that most of us had our heart chakra's blocked. This is how to tell if your heart chakra is blocked and what to do about it.

If you are holding onto grudges, your heart chakra is probably blocked. Holding onto grudges prevents you from moving on in your life and enjoying it.

You have trust issues, even if you shouldn't. Yes, everyone who has been in a relationship has experienced trust issues for a number of reasons, and most of them are completely justified. But when your trust issues are unprecedented, then it may be because your heart chakra blocked.

You feel anxious when you think about relationships both present and past.

You are emotionally dependent on someone for YOUR happiness. Remember happiness comes from yourself and no one else.

You either keep your emotions bottled up or you can't reign them in.

Here are 3 ways to heal:


On youtube, you can search up a ton of guided meditation to help you with your heart chakra. But if you prefer to go solo on this endeavor, there are two techniques you can use while meditating. The first is mediating and repeating affirmations to unblock your chakra. While you can totally tailor these affirmations to your liking, here are the ones I typically use:

"I wholeheartedly love myself"

"There are people in my life who love me, and I am ready to accept that."

"I will not allow the past to hold me back from feeling loved."

"I am and always will be worthy of love."

The other meditation may sound a bit odd, but hey, sometimes the oddest things are the ones that work the best! First, you should know that a mantra is a word or sounds you repeat while meditating. The word "YAM" is associated with the heart chakra and is also the mantra used to unblock the heart chakra. Try repeating this while meditating and see where it gets you!


Yoga is not only great for your body physically but also great for you spiritually. There are a ton of yoga videos on YouTube that help you open u your heart chakra. Down below are my three favorites!

Incorporate more green into your life 

Now I know this sound out there, but each chakra is connected to a color. The heart chakra is associated with the color green. Start by trying to incorporate more green foods into your diet. Not only will this help you open up your heart chakra, but green foods are usually healthy and great for your body. One of my favorite ways to incorporate more green into my life to open up my heart chakra is having a green drink during the day. And if I need something more substantial than a green juice, I'll have a salad or a granny smith apple. Also, don't be afraid to wear more green as well. And, if you're not into wearing green, like me, put cute little green plants around your room. I find baby cactuses the cutest.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
