Your Heart Chakra: The Key To Forgiving A Cheating Spouse
Being cheated on by someone you love is one of the most painful experiences one could ever have. It takes a long time before you can mend your broken heart and forgive your partner.
It will be helpful to learn some ways to clear and balance your heart chakra, so you can easily move on and forgive the person who cheated on you.
I will teach you how clearing your Heart Chakra can pave the way to forgiveness.
What Is The Heart Chakra?
The heart chakra is the fourth chakra, and is located at the center of your seven chakras, with three below and three above. It is the area where both the physical and spiritual come together and is located in the center of your chest.
The Sanskrit word for this fourth chakra is “Anahata”, which means unstruck or unhurt. This chakra is the color green, which stands for transformation and love energy.
A clear and balanced Heart Chakra will be flowing with love and compassion, allowing you to forgive easily and accept others openly. Whereas if you have a closed and out of balance heart chakra, you will be filled with anger, grief, jealousy, fear of betrayal, and hatred towards yourself and others.
What Role Does The Heart Chakra Play In Our Lives?
Being the center of all the chakras, the Heart Chakra regulates your relationships and interactions with others.
Your Heart Chakra is connected with the following psychological and behavioral characteristics:
- Capacity to love
- Acts as the bridge between earthly and spiritual aspirations
- Experience of unconditional love and connection with all
- Discernment that is heart-centered
- Appreciation of beauty in all things
- Experiencing deep and meaningful relationships
Your Heart Chakra is about connecting and relating, putting emphasis on giving and receiving love, and openness in relationships. Love is the important element in any relationship, whether with yourself or with others.
When you live with an open heart and with balanced heart energy, you can clearly discern yourself in any situation, no matter how challenging it may be.
You also experience beauty in life through the Heart Chakra. A balanced Heart Chakra lets you see the world in more profound and fulfilling ways.
What Are The Signs That Your Heart Chakra is Out of Balance
Your Heart Chakra can be out of balance as a result of life experiences which have had a strong emotional impact, or from significant changes in your current environment.
This could be the death of a loved one, divorce, rejection, betrayal of trust, infidelity, abandonment, injustice, or emotional abuse. These traumas can manifest blockages in the flow of energy, or cause this chakra to become overactive with excessive energy.
The following are the signs of your Heart Chakra being out of balance:
- Being defensive
- Feeling down
- Trying to please everyone
- Relying on the approval and attention of others
- Always assuming the role of the savior
- Falling into victimization
- Isolation of oneself, being antisocial
- Holding grudges, inability to forgive
This imbalance can also manifest at the physical level as:
- Respiratory ailments such as asthma, pulmonary disease, emphysema, chronic bronchitis and pneumonia
- Heart disease, cardiovascular disease, coronary artery disease, abnormal heart rhythms, and congenital heart disease
- Breast and upper back issues
A blocked Heart Chakra may lead to what is referred to as Heart Chakra pain. You may experience a resurgence of painful or negative emotions often associated with having a “broken heart”. This can be caused by emotionally painful experiences that will leave energetic imprints in this chakra.
How To Clear and Balance Your Heart Chakra
Once you have recognized the signs of a closed Heart Chakra, it’s time to heal and clear it.
Here are some practical, everyday things that you can do:
Meditation can help you restore the proper energy flow through the fourth chakra region. Meditation should be done in a place where there will be no disturbances.
Think of your Heart Chakra as a radiant glowing green orb filled with unconditional love, and then imagine all your past hurts and blockages healing and dissolving.
- Forgive Someone
Forgiving someone is not easy but you have to let go of your grudges. Otherwise, the pain will stay in your heart forever. Try your best to forgive the old wounds from broken relationships.
Let the love sink ink. Let the awareness of being loved lead your heart all day. Keep it like a warm glow. Doing this will make it easy to practice forgiveness deep within your heart.
- Practice Random Acts Of Kindness
Every day for a week, try to do anonymous good deeds for others. Make it a habit to send sincere wishes to yourself and others.
- Express Gratitude
At the end of each day, list down at least five things that you were thankful for. Read what you wrote the next day when you wake up.
- Practice Positive Affirmations
Increase the positive energy associated with the fourth chakra by practicing positive affirmations. You can write them down on a sticky note, and post them somewhere where you would always see them, like on a bathroom mirror or a computer screen.
Examples of affirmations include statements like these:
“ I am a winner. I am a successful person”
“ I deeply, and completely love and accept myself”
“ I am open to love”
“I forgive myself”
“I am a great person. I am lovable.”
Forgiving A Cheating Spouse With An Open Heart Chakra
Forgiving is never easy, especially when dealing with the betrayal of a loved one. Infidelity brings with it a wide range of emotions, from sadness to confusion to anger. Even though your loved one apologizes to you, it is difficult to get past the infidelity and forgive.
It’s not always easy to love others who hurt you and cause you pain. This is why there’s a need to open up and remove the blockages in your Heart Chakra.
When this chakra is open, you can start loving yourself and be more open to forgiving. With a fully functional Heart Chakra, you won’t focus on the hurt, and you can allow yourself to forgive the one who has wronged you.
To love and forgive will help you heal and release the blockages, but holding on to resentments of the past will only hurt you the most.
The key to forgiving infidelity is to remember you are doing it for yourself, not the other person. Forgiveness gives you a chance by releasing the negative emotions, allowing the energy to freely flow through your Heart Chakra.
You will feel light, happy, and without worries.
Your Heart Chakra is a very important chakra because it deals with the emotions within the deepest part of your soul. You will find much joy and love when it is open.
