Blockage can manifest as immune system or heart problems, or a lack of compassion.

The Heart Chakra is the centre from which feelings of love emanate. It is also associated with other virtuous emotions, such as joy, happiness, honesty, respect, compassion, understanding, and generosity, and with loving oneself in a sincere, non-egotistic way.

This is also the chakra through which we connect with others whom we love or have affection towards. Once forged, these links are very hard to break, which is why people suffer so much through the break-up of a relationship or the loss of a loved one.

This chakra is the centre of the positive (yang) Chi energy in the body, just as the Door of Life chakra is the centre of Yin Chi energy.  According to Mantak Chia, the left side of the heart chakra is red and positively charged, the right side is dark green and negatively charged, and the core of the heart centre is pure white

The red would clearly correspond to the rose light of love, while the green signifies the lower or gross emotional body functioning of the heart centre, which is focussed on self, security, and accumulation of and attachment to and pride in physical and emotional possessions.  The white of course signifyies spiritual purity.

The heart chakra is very important in spiritual healing.  According to Barbara Brennan, all  the energies metabolised through the chakras travel up the central nadi of the body and into the heart chakra, before moving out through the hands or eyes of the healer.

The heart stands at the center of all energies and unifies our being as a whole. It is the point around which all the energies turn. A discord or imbalance in the heart chakra will adversely effect all the other centers. A clearing of the heart chakra will improve the interaction of all the other centers.

Heart Chakra Clearing Visual Meditation

A simple meditation (5-10minutes) to clear any blocked heart chakra energies is to sit comfortably, close your eyes and focus on the centre of your chest where your heart is located. Breathe deeply in, in your minds eye doing so through your heart centre rather than through your nose, ie you are taking deep breathes directly into your heart. See that fresh clean air rotating around your heart and its chambers and going from the heart to the rest of your body travelling as your blood would in arteries and veins, or through nadis (chakra system) or through meridians traditional Chinese medicine.  These are all pathways for the “air” energy to travel and cleanse your body. As you breathe out and release the “air” through your heart centre it leaves your body cloudy with negative energies that it has accumulated whilst cleansing your body. You take another fresh breathe in through your heart centre and repeat. You repeat this breathing in and out through the heart centre until the “air” leaving your body is no longer cloudly but is fresh and clean. All negative energies, blockages, hurt, anger and anything else your body might be holding is let of without even having to think about it. A few minutes of “clearing out” and you will feel totally relaxed and renewed. So give it a bash!
