For centuries, Ayurveda has been used to address physical, emotional and mental problems. Practitioners of the natural healing tradition believe that problems arise due to a lack of balance between energy centers in the body. Known as the chakras, these centers are intended to allow energy to pass through freely; however, they can become closed or shut off due to various causes. When this occurs, Ayurvedic experts believe that the body, mind and spirit suffer.
Anahata or Anahat is the fourth chakra and is seated between the ribs in the center of the body. Known as the heart chakra, it is thought to be the body's center for love both for others and oneself. People whose fourth chakras are closed may be intolerant or lack the ability to forgive or empathize with others.
Problems with the fourth chakra are also linked to heart problems, immune system diseases, allergies and breast cancer. In order to open the heart chakra, Ayurvedic practitioners will often ring singing bowls. These brass bowls are crafted in a way that allows them to produce a tone harmonized to the energy of the fourth chakra. The bowls are often painted green, a color thought to promote an opening of the fourth chakra.
