Our heart chakra is probably one of the most familiar to people since it deals with the affairs of the heart. Love, empathy, compassion, and our ability for unconditional love emanate from this chakra. The heart chakra is located in the center of the chest and radiates a green color. For this gourd, I selected Green Aventurine, Green Jasper, Green Fluorite, and Clear Quartz Crystals.
Green Aventurine is a great stone to have in your wallet since it attracts prosperity. It represents good fortune and pushes us to try new things. This also promotes love and feelings of inner peace. Good fortune flows to you as you use this crystal.
I picked Green Jasper because of its ability to heal old wounds and restore balance to the heart chakra. It nurtures love and confidence within ourselves so that we can fully love outside of ourselves.
Green Fluorite can help with past traumas and emotional wounds. It allows us to move on and heal from heartaches. It harmonizes the left and right brain - leading to a balanced viewpoint. Fluorite heightens our ability to process information and adds flexibility to our acceptance of ourselves and others.
I included Clear Quartz crystal so the gold color would flash through and add innuendoes of love and compassion to this gourd.
While working with this gourd I felt a deeper need to practice care, love, and acceptance of myself. It made me think of past events that seemed devastating at the time, that are now viewed in a light of compassion and acceptance. It made me think about the beauty of unconditional love and whether I have it for myself. An open heart chakra attracts love, abundance, and prosperity. The heart chakra connects the upper and lower chakras, as love connects heaven and earth.
