Sometimes the heart feels like it is the center of your being, stronger than the mechanical impulses of the brain. That’s because it is.

Your heart is not just the organ that pumps blood to your body. For centuries it has been viewed as the center of your soul, responsible for important life decisions.

As a chakra image, this balance is displayed as a star created by two intersecting triangles. Each triangle points in the opposite direction, showing the union of masculine (consciousness) and feminine (form) energies.
