THE REASON FOR EXPANDING
THE HEART CHAKRA
Conventional wisdom is that all of the seven major chakras must be in balance and aligned. While I do not suggest that this is wrong, I suggest that it is only the beginning. My unconventional wisdom is that all of the chakras are subordinate to the heart chakra and that we reach true spiritual awakening only when we have enlarged our heart chakra to emcompass all there is.
The heart chakra is the midpoint of our physical bodies. It lies halfway between the three lower chakras, which keep us moving in the physical realm, and the three upper chakras, which keep us growing in the spiritual realm.
The heart chakra is also the midpoint in our spiritual bodies. It lies halfway between Mother Earth, who is our connection to the physical plane, and Father Sky, who is our connection to the spiritual plane.
I suggest that in order to be truly balanced, our heart chakra must be expanded to include not only each of the six other major chakras in our physical bodies, but also the entirety of our spiritual bodies. Balance lies in the recognition and acceptance that Love is All There Is. This recognition and acceptance resides in the heart chakra.
An expansion of the heart chakra to encompass all there is means that every thought, word, and deed will be undertaken in Love--that Love will be the constant guiding force on both the physical and the spiritual planes--that nothing we think or do can ever be totally self-centered.
We generally accept that "we" end at our skin--that what is inside the skin is "me" and that what is outside the skin is everything else, "not-me," or "them." I am suggesting that Love--the expanded heart chakra--does not recognize this distinction--that, to a properly expanded heart chakra, all of creation is "us." I am suggesting that the holder of a properly balanced heart chakra has moved beyond the apparent limitations and boundaries of the physical realm and has regained awareness of being a part of the All.

It sounds like you have found places that are more in tune with the head, and places that are more in tune with the heart. A balance is good.
It will keep you down to Earth without floating off into space.

I was at work with my MP3 player on for like 30 mins watching this radiation machine -it has to be supervised!! just in case it trys to take over the world) so I thought Oh I'll do some heart chakra after our conversation yesterday...no its just unbalanced me totally. Tearfull and sad was all I felt.
