Term: heart chakra

DEFINITIONS

Heart Chakra: One of the power centers found in spiritual traditions with a source in the Indian subcontinent. The Heart Chakra (Anahata in Sanskrit) is physically associated with the central chest area. When this chakra is overcharged or undercharged with spiritual energy, it implies that you are dealing with issues of universal love or decision making. This is also the chakra that lies between the lower, physically-based chakras and the upper, spiritually-based chakras. As such, it is a link between our physical and spiritual selves. It is symbolized by a lotus flower that has twelve petals.Donald Michael Kraig

Heart Chakra:

Also known as Anahata.The fourth psychic center. The chakra located at the heart; associated with the color green, the planet Sun or Venus, and the Sephirah Tiphareth.
