Official Role
Role
The nine points of the Heart channel are almost all involved in the destiny so our Emperors vision can be achieved, many of the Ht points are spiritual points. The Heart (Emperor) empowers us so we can recognize our true potential. It helps us to initiate action, which is congruent with our true self. It has an influencing effect on all the other officials. Following the heart helps us to flow from our intuition. Often the heart channel may need to be balanced when we are disconnected from our true self or from our true path, when we have lost the flow of intuition.
