The higher heart chakra is the etheric heart, which is the area where intent originates. Some books refer to this area as the thymus chakra or high heart chakra.
It connects the emotions of Divine love, compassion, truth and forgiveness, with the area where language originates, allowing you to speak from the heart.
This is an important area of the body because its energy is extremely helpful to everyone who wants to ensure that the way they communicate is compassionate towards others.
The spoken word resonates here, and the use of sound resonates from here within the etheric body and creates a powerful healing effect.
The Higher Heart Chakra Explained:
So where is this chakra? The thymic or thymus chakra is located in the upper chest, just above and to the right of the heart chakra, between the heart and throat chakras.
This chakra is associated with the thymus gland, one of the earliest glands that develop in the fetus while in the womb.
This gland is related to the immune system and has within it the patterning for your DNA, and your karmic design for this lifetime, including past life information.
It is also called the thymus chakra, and is about selfless, spiritual love for the Great Divine Spirit. This chakras meaning is all about the concept of 'Divine love' in a transcendent spiritual sense.
The meaning of the higher heart chakra also called the thymic chakra, relate to the feelings of Divine love, compassion, forgiveness and release of fear.
This chakra relates to Christ consciousness, and the bridge between your emotions and your intellect. This chakras location creates a strong sound healing effect in the etheric body and aids communication.
This chakra is where you find the thymus gland and it is the primary gland that aids the immune system and creates a stronger healing outcome.
Working with higher heart chakra stones aids you to create a connection between your soul body and physical body. If you rub this point, you will notice it feels slightly sore.
It is the point used by EFT practitioners when they are doing meridian tapping, and they may call it the 'sore point', as if you rub it hard it can hurt a little.
There are also other benefits to the physical body by assisting this chakra to begin to open up and its energy to expand.
The higher heart chakra governs the immune system, and its vibration helps during infections, especially influenza. It's energy aids the thyroid gland and throat, just above it.
It's energy helps to improve the general well-being of the physical body, and will aid high blood pressure, and healing of tumors.
It helps those who suffer with feelings of general irritability, and it has a calming action that helps to create more restful sleep.
The energy from this chakra may flow up into the throat chakra where it may aid with communication and loss of voice.
This may be especially valuable if you have not been expressing ideas about issues that it is now time to let go of.
By voicing your true feelings you may heal ongoing problems within the throat and above it. As the energy flows to and from this chakra to the head, it may help to relieve headaches.
As you begin to work more with the higher heart chakra stones and crystals that stimulate this area, you may find that you are open to express your love more freely.
Once you begin to work with the energy of this chakra, you may find yourself being open to more loving touches, hugging and general demonstrations of the loving feelings that are flowing more freely through your body.
This energy will flow through to all aspects of your life. As you work with this chakras energy, you will find that you will begin to live your life, more in line with what your higher self desired for you.
This relates to what you planned before you came here to this earth in this incarnation.
If you have wondered what your life purpose is, working with the energy of the thymus chakra may aid you to find out exactly what that is.
Using higher heart chakra stones as part of your spiritual practice may be helpful. This is a chakra that has been neglected in the past, but now the earth needs each of you to elevate your vibrations.
