How To Open The Heart Chakra and Get the Love You Deserve

Heart Chakra header

If you've ever been heartbroken or emotionally abused...

You know the painful effect it can have on you, your mind, and your body.

Your Heart Chakra certainly knows this pain - 

Just think back to a time when you felt as though you could trust somebody you loved with something...

...only to have them do you wrong and leave you in the dust.

It's a terrible feeling, but one that can make our Heart Chakra stronger.

But what if it doesn't grow stronger?

What if it continues suffering throughout the years because of the abuse? 

I'm certainly no stranger to this...

...and today I want to talk about how you can build the strength to carry on using specific Heart Chakra release techniques.

These techniques are designed to clear your Heart Chakra of the emotional trauma that it may be carrying... well as rebalance it towards an equilibrium so that you can live the life you want and get the love you deserve.

But first, we need to understand the delicate nature of our Heart Chakra...


Our Heart Chakra is an extremely delicate Chakra that can sometimes put up energetic walls.

This happens when we get hurt or abused by our friends, family members, or even our partners.

When our Heart Chakra puts up this wall, it means to protect itself from any further damage or harm.

It's a defense mechanism so that you won't subject yourself to similar pain.

However, this can also cause us to lash out, feel lonely, and even develop depression.

Several of my clients have come to me and asked me how they can remediate this pain through Reiki.

How Reiki Helps The Heart Chakra

Remember that Reiki helps you establish a connection with Universal Energy so that you can live happily.

The Universal Energy weaves its healing light in throughout your many bodies so taht you can experience what it is.

As a transformative power, it helps reestablish that connection by breaking down the walls that the Heart Chakra sets up in defense.

Doing so can be jarring for many people...a lot of people want to heal, but they don't want to let their guard down because they're afraid.

This fear can sometimes get in the way of Universal Energy, because it won't heal anywhere you don't want it to go.


If you want to keep your shields up...then Universal Energy will come knocking.

However, if you don't respond or don't want it to come in, it wiill move around the pain.

So the key is to open up yourself to the vulnerability of having no wall or shield.

The only way to heal is by doing so...and even though you open yourself up to risk, you gain so much more.

Even if your Heart Chakra has no walls around it, you might be scared of letting it interact with the energy of other people.

As a result, you withdraw yourself because you understand that there is potential for harm.

In either case, you need to open your Heart Chakra up in order to fully understand the capacity you have for healing.

When you do this, you make the Heart Chakra more resilient and able to handle itself.

Should it ever go through that kind of hardship again, you make it so that it won't break or crumble under pressure - but instead, remain steadfast and strong.

I always emphasize to my students that you need to make yourself stronger.

Don't settle for pain-free - go all the way until you can handle much more than you used to.

The following are some techniques that you can use to open your Heart Chakra again.

However, you could also suffer from damage caused to your other Chakras.

If this is the case, then you need to get your Chakras balanced immediately.

Now, we'll learn some of the Heart Chakra release techniques so that you can invite love back into your life...

Break Down The Wall

This technique is primarily focused on those who have set up walls to protect themselves from pain.

The focus of this technique is to break those down...

...if you don't break them down, you'll never be able to invite love back into your life.

It will always remain out of your reach because love will wait outside the walls.

Although this sounds romantic, this does nothing for love or for yourself other than to make you feel more secluded and lonely.


Use this technique to chip away at those walls - it may take a while if you've experienced a particularly rough heartbreak or trauma, but the more you do it, the better you'll get.

Here's how to do it...

Cup your hands and hold them out in front of you.

Close your eyes and invoke Universal Energy into your hands.

They may become warm or hot, but let it.

As you have this Universal Energy in your palms, slowly bring your hands over your Heart Chakra, approximately one centimeter below your Heart.

Imagine the healing light penetrating your skin as you slowly push your palms against your chest.

As you do this, rub your chest with your hands as if you were wiping away at your walls.

You may start crying or think of some incidents that really hurt you, but that's okay. That's part of the healing process.

Continue to do this for at least 2 minutes to as long as you need to.

I recommend that you stop after 15 minutes, as the emotional experience may overwhelm you.

Repeat this as often as necessary throughout the day or week until you feel better.

Use the power of Universal Energy and the healing light to give your Heart Chakra the warmth it needs before it can open itself up again.

Next, we'll learn one of my favorite Heart Chakra release techniques...


The Savannah

This healing technique is called the Savannah because of how it makes your Heart Chakra feel completely open.

When your Heart Chakra is open, you can feel the love inviting itself into your life...and relieving you of the stress and anxiety that you originally had to deal with.

Use this when you are in need of some love or are about to go on a date.

Using this right before a date can set great intentions for you and lead to a great result.

I've used this multiple times when I was sitting at home alone so that I could feel comforted even when no one was there for me.

Here's how to do it...

Take your left hand and make a fist.

With your other hand, cup it until it looks like a small bowl.

With your right hand, cup it over your chest and allow any kind of anxiety, stress, or pressure fill your hand.

You may feel a slight increase in your breath rate or even feel sweaty.

Even if this is the case, keep pouring your emotions into this bowl.

Once you are done (approximately 2 minutes or so), use your fist to slowly drive your knuckles into the 'bowl'. 

Mix this around as if you were using a mortal and pestle.

Once you do that, visualize the remaining minerals dropping out of your right hand and onto the ground.

Cup your hand over your Heart Chakra once more...

...and this time, channel only positive energy.

Your hand might begin to shake or tremble, but trust that you have the capacity to handle it.

As you do, remove your hand from your heart and feel the positive energy radiating from it.

Squeeze your hand tight to channel it into your bodystream.

You should feel a bit more open and relaxed now.
