Anti-social behavior is not just a state of being unable to associate with others. Some psychologists have recognized that it can be a symptom of deeper disorders. It can also signal a problem in the spiritual state of being.
The inability to feel compassion for others is a serious deficit for an individual who is part of society. Social relationships can begin to be draining and it can become a state of constant apathy. This is not just bad for your own spiritual and mental well-being, but a constant source of pain for your loves ones.
In the spiritual schemata this might be a sign of you having trouble with your heart chakra. The heart chakra, located right in the chest, is the fourth chakra type (see image bellow). It represents the expression of love and compassion. The literal translation for heart chakra from the traditional Sanskrit is Anahata, which means ‘unstruck’. It’s easy to conclude that by balancing your heart chakra, you will feel more free and allow yourself to open up to others. In sense, you will become ‘unstruck’ in your social life.
Important Characteristics of Heart Chakra
- Peace and Harmony
- The ability to spread love
- The equally important ability to receive love
- Creating bonds between people
- The natural experience and purification of grief
A healthy and happy life where we are at peace with our social world is the sign of a healthy heart chakra. It blends the functions of all the other chakra energies together. Some argue that the heart chakra could be seen as the most essential chakra force inside us.
Symptoms of Blocked Heart Chakra
- Being overly dependent on others for approval
- The inability to forgive
- Constantly playing the victim card
- Feeling helpless and believing that you are always the victim
- Respiratory and cardio-vascular (heart) diseases
- Being overcritical and lacking empathy
The symptoms of a blocked heart chakra can express itself in two extremes. It can manifest as the complete and cynical breakdown of all relationships with isolation. It can also be experienced through becoming too dependent on the people around you. Some people may experience even more symptoms than the ones listed above.
Take the stress off your life if you believe your heart chakra is blocked. It is essential to recognize that the effects of constant stress can be very damaging to your personal health and well-being. Learn to relax and enjoy life a bit. Another dangerous trend is to hold on to grudges. Emotional pain received in the past is no reason for you to give up on your present. As clichéd as it sounds somewhere in our lives we need to learn to just ‘let it go’. Your life will be much better off for it.
