Hi, today i experienced something very weird in my heart-chakra and would be happy to hear if somebody has experienced something similar!
I had been meeting my friend this day and we usually speak about pretty deep topics and we were sitting in the park and i went into a very deep meditative state and felt very pure and strong energy emanating through my heart and my speach was flowing beautifully. I really felt immersed and connected this day (today) but even though i felt very strong and engaging i was getting this message over and over in my mind that i’m being ”too giving” or ”giving out too much” at the same time. I was doing my best to keep the energy and conversation balanced between me and my friend so that i would keep a balance between the energy ping ponging between us. But later on without anything particular happening i just felt my heart/ heart-chakra area become numb (not painful) but numb, I just didn’t feel connected anymore and just felt out of touch with my surroundings (feeling of not being able to enjoy the moment). Usually i always am in a meditative state and feel connected to my surroundings all the time. I am not sure if my heart-chakra got over active and overused but this is the second time i experience this in one week. I read a little about overactive heart-chakra and it suggested symptoms like (Loving indiscriminately, acceptance others without dicernment) which resonated with the situation at hand slightly. I was feeling wonderful and felt like sharing, maybe i am not close enough with my friend yet to be sharing that amount of energy with him? Maybe i’m being too giving, easygoing and allowing with my friend just because he is closest to me off them all? It took me the whole evening to balance the chakra back to a state where i could feel the connectedness with my environment. Does anyone know this feeling and experience and know what it can be about/ how to prevent it from happening?
Thank you!July 17, 2020 at 4:59 pm #361981
“I just felt my heart/ heart-chakra area become numb.. I just didn’t feel connected anymore and just felt out of touch with my surroundings.. I am not sure if my heart-chakra got over active and overused… Does anyone know this feeling..?
I do know the experience of neurons (nerve cells) being too stimulated/ over active, so much so that it becomes uncomfortable. It can be a joyful neural experience, such as when eating a very tasty food- but if the neurons over react/ get too stimulated, it becomes very uncomfortable.
Sometimes the response of the nervous system to being overly stimulated is to go numb/ disassociate.

Thanks for the answer,
How do they get over stimulated and how is this connected to the heart-chakra or energy-vise? How do i prevent it from overstimulation?

You are welcome. I don’t know much about chakras. I know something about science: our subjective experience of being stimulated has to do with nerve cells instructing certain glands in our bodies to produce stimulating hormones. These stimulated hormones, like adrenaline, are secreted into our blood and reach our heart, muscles, skin, and other organs. It is these stimulating chemicals/ hormones that are the reason we feel stimulated.
When our nerve cells are overly active, too much of the stimulating hormones are produced, and the result is an over-stimulation that is very uncomfortable and distressing. When we feel overly anxious and stimulated, we instinctively rush. It is then time to slow down and become mindful: aware and focused on the here-and-now. To prevent anxiety/ over-stimulation- make it a preventative, ongoing practice to slow down, to be aware of and focus on the here-and-now (aka to be mindful).

Ok, i understand.
I can relate to being rush-y and over-exited so i start walking fast, talking fast which all contributes to my meditative state going away.

“I can relate to being rush-y and over excited so I start walking fast, talking fast which all contributes to my meditative state going away”- rushing and being mindful are opposite states of minds. Whenever you notice that you already started rushing, slow down, every time- this is the nature of mindful practice.
