“The holy atom of the Self is to be discovered in the right chamber of the heart, roughly one finger-width from the body's midline,” says Ramana Maharshi, the renowned Advaita master. This is where the Heart, the vibrant Spiritual Heart, resides. It's called hridaya, and it's positioned on the right side of the breast, readily visible to an adept on the Spiritual Path's inner eye. You can learn to find the Self in the cave of this Heart through meditation.”

What is pure heart in the Bible?
According to what Jesus said, “The pure in heart are blessed, for they will see God (Matthew 5:8).”
This benediction, one of the beatitudes that opens the Lord's Sermon on the Mount, serves as a powerful reminder that pleasing God requires more than just doing the right things. It's a question of the heart. While mankind may judge by appearances, God judges by the heart (cf. 1 Samuel 16:7). And while we may deceive ourselves about the state of our hearts, God is never deceived. As the adage goes, “In his own eyes, a man's actions are right, but the Lord considers the heart (Proverbs 21:2; ESV).”
Part of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount included a reminder of the necessity of getting one's heart right with God. Adultery is wicked, but Jesus also warned us that lust is a filthy interior sin of the heart (cf. Matthew 5:27-30). While murdering others was undoubtedly wrong, Jesus told out that another sin of the heart, anger, would also lead a person to hell (cf. Matthew 5:21-22). We shall be held accountable for our actions in the body (2 Corinthians 5:10), but we will also be held accountable for our thoughts.
The blessing that Jesus bestows on those who have a pure heart makes sense: if we are evaluated by our hearts, then those who have pure hearts will be the ones who will enter heaven. The blessing granted, like several other beatitudes, is a figure of speech describing redemption. “Be comforted,” “Inherit the earth,” “Receive Mercy,” and “See God” are all different ways of conveying “They will be in Heaven.”
On the other hand, if our hearts are not clean, we shall not be in heaven on the last day (cf. Psalm 24:3-5). The Pharisees and scribes were given this warning by Jesus. He advised His followers that they wouldn't be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven until they outperformed the Pharisees in holiness (Matthew 5:20). Pharisees, he subsequently warned, were blind guides who would lead their followers to disaster (Matthew 15:14), and that they were keeping themselves and others out of the Kingdom (Matthew 23:13). According to Jesus, part of the problem, if not all of it, was that the Pharisees' inward parts were wicked, despite their external piety. As a result, Jesus offered them a colorful description, saying, “Woe to you, hypocrites, scribes and Pharisees! For you are like whitewashed tombs that appear beautiful on the outside but are full of dead people's bones and filth on the inside. So you, too, appear upright on the outside but are full of hypocrisy and wickedness on the inside. (ESV; Matthew 23:27-28) ” The Pharisees were a religious sect “I have a heart condition.”
Despite this, “Although “heart difficulties” can be difficult for males to recognize at times, there are specific warning indicators we can look for to determine if we have such a problem.
There is, of course, the issue of sin. The Pharisees' hearts caused them to reject Jesus and want to kill Him. Such behavior does not come from good hearts. Instead, as Jesus said, “Murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, and slander are all bad thoughts that flow from the heart (Matthew 15:19; ESV).” When we observe a spouse cheat on his wife, a man steal from another, or someone spreading lies and gossip, we may reasonably conclude that there is a heart problem at the root of the action. It's pointless to complain that our hearts are in the right place when our feet are speeding down the wrong road.
A pure heart will give birth to pure words and acts. We can't get salt water out of a fresh water spring, and we can't get fresh water out of the ocean, thus we can't obtain righteousness out of a wicked heart, and wickedness won't arise from a pure heart (cf. James 3:10-11).
However, there is a solution; one that is pretty obvious. The Bible exhorts us to, “God will draw near to you if you get near to Him. Purify your hands, you sinners, and your hearts, you double-minded (James 4:8; ESV).” Despite the fact that our hearts are sinful, God gives a way to cleanse them and knowledge to fill them with pure and pleasant things. It begins with a recognition of what we've done and why we've done it, followed by repentance as we draw near to God and allow Him to wash us clean.
Our continual prayer, like the Psalmist's, should be, “Create in me a pure heart, O God (Psalm 51:10).”
What does the Bible say about where your heart is?
The wording in the King James Version of the Bible says, “For where your wealth is, there will also be your heart.” The text is translated as follows in the World English Bible: For where your treasure is, there will also be your heart.
How do I unblock my heart chakra?
Chakras are energy vortexes in the body that have an impact on your emotions, thoughts, and health. Chakra balance is the key to living a happy, healthy life.
The green color represents the heart chakra, or anahata, which is located in the center of the chest. The rib cage, lungs, heart, circulation, skin, hands, arms, and upper back are all governed by this chakra. Disruptive relationships, feelings of isolation, skin disorders, asthma, circulation difficulties, low or high blood pressure, heart palpitations, chest pains, and, in extreme circumstances, heart attack are all symptoms of any imbalance or obstruction. So, how do we alter our thinking to bring the chakras into balance? You may balance your chakras in a variety of ways that are both simple and effective.
Close your eyes and sit in a comfortable position with your legs crossed. Imagine a green light emanating from the center of your chest and expanding outwards, totally encompassing you until you are entirely relaxed. Allow the light to travel from your brow to the tips of your toes. Rep three times more.
Yoga opens up your heart chakra, allowing wonderful energy to come in. Sphinx posture, camel stance (Ustrasana), cat pose (Marjaryasana), fish pose (Matsyasana), and the chest fly kundalini exercise are also good options. Positive energy will readily pour in when you arch your chest up in these poses.
Crystal Therapy: Crystals' vibrations aid in the healing of our chakras. Begin by lying down in a quiet area with the crystal centered on your chest. Relax and allow the gemstone to absorb all bad energy and replace it with positive energy. Remove the gemstone after 10 minutes and place it in a bowl of water to cleanse it of bad energy and reactivate its powers.
Aromatherapy is also a very effective treatment. Marjoram, hyssop, angelica, lavender, neroli, chamomile, rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, rosemary, sandalwood, and frankincense are essential oils for a balanced heart chakra. Concentrate on happy memories and thoughts while allowing the oils to absorb any negative energy.
Engage in activities that allow you to be near to nature and greenery, such as gardening or biking. Feel the green light envelop you as it radiates from your chest.
You must be patient as your heart chakra heals if it is obstructed or imbalanced. Positive energy will open doors for you and help you appreciate yourself more. Learning to appreciate yourself is the first step in bettering your life.
