"What Crystals Work with the Heart Chakra?"
Hi there B,
Thanks for reaching out to us.
The Heart Chakra, located in the center of the chest, is the emotional energy center of our bodies. Emotions are complicated. They are intensely private and personal, yet most of the time they are responses to relationships and circumstances outside of us. The Heart Chakra is a perfect reflection of this. As much as the Heart Chakra tells us about ourselves and our own willingness to open up to the world or hide from it, its energy also lets the people around us know, on an energetic level, how much we are willing to give or receive. The state of a person’s Heart Chakra can inform you of how receptive they are to emotional interactions.
Energetically speaking, the Heart Chakra is the bridge between the lower chakras (Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus) and upper chakras (Throat, Third-Eye, Crown). This means it is the balance between our physical and spiritual selves; the human being residing in this world and the spiritual being aware of planes beyond our understanding. The more open your Heart Chakra is, the more capable you are of recognizing the spiritual in everyday circumstances (i.e., synchronicities, deep appreciation for the beauty of a flower, or messages from spiritual guides).
Ultimately, the Heart Chakra is a window into our most honest self. However much we grow and change one of the most consistent things in our lives are our emotional responses to situations. They teach us a lot about how we approach the world. Just as importantly, whatever emotion we feel - be it positive or negative - resonates within our Heart Chakras and from there out into the world changing it.
Crystals that work on the Heart Chakra and open you up to more love, compassion, empathy and forgiveness include:
Antigorite, Chrysocolla, Green Aventurine, Emerald (especially helpful for bringing everything back to heart space), Malachite, Morganite (works similar to Emerald as they're from the same family), Rhodonite, Rhodochrosite, Rose Quartz (amazing for the heart chakra and forgiveness), and Ruby. I'd recommend taking a look at each one and then going with what you're drawn to and what makes your heart feel open when you are looking at it and reading about it.
Hope this helps :)
