Anahata. The fourth center, which embodies the element air, is situated in the chest. It is often called the heart lotus because it is in the heart and cardiac region of the physical body. Deep red in color, it has twelve mystic ducts emanating from it. In the middle of this chakra are two intersecting triangles. Within these triangles is the core of our individual being, the very spirit of the divine, which glows "like the steady tapering flame of a lamp."
