Earlier we talked about how a blocked heart chakra can cut us off from satisfying relationships. When our heart chakra, or fourth chakra, is blocked, we often do things to keep others out. Even if we want a loving intimate relationship, we find ways (sometimes very creatively) to keep someone from entering that space.
Then, we often look outside of ourselves to try to figure out why our intimate relationships aren’t turning out the way that we might want. Instead of looking outward, we should look inward to see what changes we can make in our lives. One of those changes is balancing out our heart chakra.
While a blocked heart chakra can be impactful, an overactive fourth chakra can be just as detrimental to your love life. With an overactive fourth chakra, you may experience one or more of the following:
—You have the inability to set boundaries and say ‘no’ to others. In other words, you’re the resident doormat, letting others walk all over you.
–You exhibit clingy behavior in relationships. You may be the person who needs your significant other to constantly show you attention and you end up smothering them and killing the relationship.
–You lose yourself in relationships. You find yourself forgetting all about your own interests, hobbies, friendships, goals, etc. whenever you enter a relationship.
–You have a tendency to attract co-dependent relationships. You tend to keep meeting up with the same partner who brings out the worst in you and you do the same for him or her.
–You love others at your personal expense. In other words, you sacrifice yourself, your wants and your sanity for this person. You love them to the detriment of yourself.
If any of these behaviors sound familiar, here’s how to balance your heart chakra and give your love life a boost.
