Thursday Throat Chakra

💙💙💙💙💙🌟💙💙💙💙💙

Thursday is the day associated with the Throat Chakra. Named after the Norse god “Thor”, Thursday is called “Thors Day”, accordingly, and is governed by the Planet Jupiter.

Choosing to work with our Throat chakra on the “day of Jupiter” can help with the expansion of energies, whether this be opening to more prosperity or better communication.

💙This particular Thursday is further charged by Mercury entering the star sign of Aquarius. The influence of this Mercury sign means that communicating and finding ways for self-expression using modern technologies will carry you far during this time, and feel like a whole lot more fun than the trusty (but SO last-century) pen and paper. And if you’re someone who normally works in isolation, ensure you use this astrological vibe to get plenty of time with other like-minded folks. The energy of Aquarius feels very individualist, but in actual fact thrives in company.

Time to come out of hiding, starlings!

💙💙Throat Chakra💙💙

The fifth chakra, the throat or Vishuddha chakra, sits in the area of the throat, jaw, neck, mouth, and thyroid.

In Sanskrit, Vishuddha means “especially pure”. As the throat chakra governs the mouth, tongue, and neck, it relates to communication and your ability to understand and speak your inner truth “purely”. When out of balance, one has difficulty staying true to themselves and expressing needs, desires, and opinions with themselves and others.

The throat chakra corresponds to the element of ether: space that forms the essence of emptiness. Our true selves exist in the space between the clutter of constant thoughts and emotions through meditation. In the calmness, we find the subtle element of ether and reconnect to the throat chakra.

When the throat chakra is in balance, we speak, listen, and express ourselves openly and authentically. When out of balance, we ignore our inner voice, feel afraid of expressing ourselves, or have trouble listening to others. A blocked throat chakra can also store tension physically and cause a sore throat or neck and shoulder pain.

Your expression is an offering that you make to the world. It is taking what is buried deep inside of you and letting it see the light of day. When you are unable to share your truth, you avoid being honest with yourself and with others.

We create Throat Chakra healing every time we express ourselves honestly and authentically.

💙Sage or burn ether incense(Mexican Copal, Frankincense, Lavender, Himalayan Sang, Sage Leaf and Sandalwood)

💙Light a blue candle infused with clary sage, German Chamomile and/ or peppermint EO to call in spirits, ancestors and to magnify intentions to share our truths.

💙intention-“I return to the Universe as much energy as I have received”

💙Earth’s Plant essences- German(blue) chamomile mixed with a few drops of Lavender, Clary sage and 1/2 drop peppermint EO

💙Earth’s Crystals-

Turquoise-An ancient and powerful stone that brings ease of communication, especially from our higher selves and spirit guides. Turquoise is good for boosting courage and clarifying what we need to evolve and grow.

💙Yoga-During yoga practice, you activate this area through poses that focus on your neck and throat, as well as breathing practices (pranayama) that create sound in your throat. Especially if you dislike the sound of your own voice, chanting can be one of the most powerful practices to initiate Throat Chakra healing.

Head Rolls and Neck Stretches. This yoga warm-up decreases stiffness in your upper back, neck, and jaw.

Lion’s Breath -Deeply inhale through your nose while lifting your hands into the air. Exhale and claw the air downward with your hands, extend your tongue, open your eyes wide, and create an audible sound in your throat. Let it stem straight from your Throat Chakra.

Repeat this three to four times. If you have a tendency to get a dry throat, decrease the volume and intensity of your “roar.”

Supported Shoulderstand

Fish Pose as counter to

Shoulderstand

💙Mantra- HAM

💙Mudra-GRANTHITA MUDRA:Interlace your last three fingers (middle, ring and pinky) together inside of your hands. Interlock the index fingertips and thumbs to form two rings and hold this mudra in front of the base of your throat. Inhale and exhale through the nose for 4 rounds of breath.

💙Meditation-“In meditation as my mind quietens, my body quietens also. When this happens I feel the dance of infinite awareness connecting me to all that is or could be”

Visualizations you can use when sitting quietly outdoors under a blue sky, or near a blue body of water, or meditating include: visualizing a blue light coming down from the sky and encompassing you, feel it saturate your body. Breath in the blue air, hold it for a few seconds giving it time to gather toxins and then breath out watching as blockages and negativities are removed.

💙See Y’all- Our experiences and truths makes their appearance only when it they are being expressed.

Express yourself! Be known! Be courageous as our time on earth is passing quickly.

🧡Plant energy – inhale the earthy scents of plants and trees, such as pine, cedar, patchouli, myrrh, and amber.

🧡Earth’s crystal energy: Arrange orange calcite, bumblebee jasper and carnelian crystals in an energetic pattern

Orange is a power color, carrying the fiery heat of red with a gentler, more creative spirit to it. It is also a strong healing color, due to its association with the warm and powerful energy of the sun. Orange gemstones stimulate creativity, increase enthusiasm, accentuate personal power and bring confidence.

Crystals formed deep within the heart of the Earth contain an incredible amount of wisdom from experiencing the many transformations over millions and millions of years. Let your crystals know you welcome their vibrations.

🧡for these dark days of winter request the gatekeepers of the north to help us receive wisdom, find comfort and renewal, and remember what truly anchors us.

Set intention for practice such as “ I am more connected with the flow of life”

🧡Yoga-For Creativity, Joy, and Flow:

Squat Pose -In Squat Pose, you bring your hips towards the earth and lift your heart towards the sky. Stay in this pose for five to ten breaths to build strength in your feet and flexibility in your ankles, knees, and hips.

Bound Angle or Butterfly Pose

In addition to providing a generous stretch for your inner groins and thighs, you can integrate an easy flow in this pose. Experiment with fluttering your knees up and down a few times. Then hold the position with your knees wide open and bow your heart and head forward towards your feet. Roll up through your spine to come back upright, then repeat this spinal roll a few times.

For more yoga I often tune into Adriene on YouTube:

🧡Mudra-Break of Day -This mudra can be done from a seated position with your hands resting easily in your lap. To form the mudra, interlace your fingers with your left thumb on top gently pressing into your right thumb

🧡Meditate-Meditation is like prednisone for the spirit. It has the power to reduce inflammation of all kind, physical, energetic, and spiritual. Meditation is great for balancing and healing the sacral chakra and all the other chakras too.

🧡See Y’all- throughout the day take deep breaths then sway-just allow your body to move any way it feels called. Think fluid and sway.
