What are the chakras?
The chakras are energy points or centres in our bodies in and out of which energy flows. In Sanskrit chakra means wheel so you could imagine them to be spinning wheels or vortexes of energy. Just as you have memories stored in your brain, your chakras are mini data centres where everything that has happened to you is stored. Each centre houses specific experiences. How cool is that to have your own mini you library stored in areas of your body? I also believe that they hold keys to our future selves too.
Just as we have a physical body, chakras can be likened to our spiritual body. Each one acts like a window to the soul and will feed information back to you about the state of your health and life. The health and energetic vibration of each chakra is influenced by the energies that surround you and the energy you project from your thoughts and feelings. This shows up in how you feel and experience life.
The Throat Chakra
This is located in the V of the collarbone at your lower neck. The throat chakra is how you communicate. A lot of personal transformation can occur here when you finally learn to speak your truth and follow your dreams. It is from here you can communicate and express your divine inner wisdom.
You will find yourself being sensitive to the power of words, think about how you speak to yourself and others. It also influences your ability to actively listen to and hear others, which is how you create your foundation for understanding.
When this chakra is balanced, you will be able to express yourself well, communicate clearly and listen to your inner voice as well as others.
Colour blue. Element ether. The right to speak and hear the truth. Emotion – lies. Endocrine gland – Thyroid. Spine – T1 to C5
Connect with your throat chakra and say no, and then yes. Consider what you need and want to say no and yes to. Use your no’s and yes’s wisely through your day.
Sit quietly before you write and connect with your quiet inner voice. Sigh out everything you need to express. Breathe in and out the words I have the right to speak your truth and then write.
- In what ways do you express yourself well, why is this, and how can you carry this learning into other areas of your life?
- How can you practice saying no more and not following it with excuses that others could override?
- What can you say yes to?
- How can stop your brain whizzing off in different directions so that you can be more fully present to what others are saying?
- How could you communicate your needs more effectively?
- How can you speak to yourself more loving way?
I honour and respect my truth and voice
