Yogic Living: Opening the Heart for Greater Love

The 4th Chakra is the Heart Center, the center of love, compassion and kindness. It is where our consciousness awakens to  spiritual awareness, forgiveness and service.

The Heart Center is the balance point between the flow of the upper energies of the Heavens and the lower energies of the Earth. Our hearts hold both our joy and our pain. With the technology of Kundalini Yoga we can heal the pains of the past that have embedded themselves in our hearts and psyches.

We can open our hearts so we can give and receive love without fear, anger, or re­sentment, and experience compassion. In this state of compassion we can release the pain of former relationships, energize and elevate current relationships, and begin to express our divine essence.

 “Hate nobody; love everybody. Love never costs anything. Love is the most selfish act. It gives you so much protection, grace, and radiance. Do not seek anything from people. Give love instead, and rely on God.”
-Yogi Bhajan
