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.

💚See Y’all- in the deepest level of the heart we finally realize that we are the source of the love we have sought so desperately. We understand that love always flows out of wholeness, not out of need. We recognize that love does not come through what we get, but through what we give, and that the light of our love is reflected and fulfilled in the outer world. We understand that love is not something that is given to us from the outside, but something that we are connected to deep inside us. The more we recognize this, the less we seek externally and the deeper we open ourselves inwardly and sink into this love. There we discover that the source of love is eternal; that it cannot be interrupted; that it always flows, through and beyond all form and circumstances. We recognize that we ourselves are the source of love, and at the same time are completely dependent on everything else, united in this love. In this paradox we begin to understand the true miracle of life.

Confident, Creative, Cheerful Sacral Chakra

Monday resonates bright ORANGE with your source of confidence, creativity, cheerfulness and friendly Sacral Chakra.   This potential energy area in your pelvic region influences personal creativity ranging from artistic expression to creative problem solving.  We are energy transformers–alive and developing in proportion to how much of this universal energy we accept and how freely it flows through us. The better we transmit this energy or allow it to flow through us the more confident, creative, and cheerful we become.

Chant:  “I FEEL”

Silently Meditate, focusing on your orange energy and  affirming “I Feel”

CRYSTALS: Orange Calcite helps integrate the spiritual realm with the physical body, enhances creativity, and is helpful when working with emotional issues. Orange Calcite assist with energizing and cleansing the lower chakras. Working with Orange Calcite, read that as intentions, can bring higher insights from the upper chakras down into the lower chakras for processing so they can be used in a more instinctual way without needing extended thought.
Meditating with Orange Calcite can bring insights into the causes of apathy or lethargy, allowing you to take back control over your life (in place of worry).  Let your intention for JOYFUL, CREATIVE, CONFIDENCE  be known then silently listen to the Universe knowing your crystals have the same vibration.

Orange Calcite’s vital energy can serve as a catalyst for the release of past traumas that have been holding you back, allowing for optimism and joy to come in. If you have been  experiencing depression you may  benefit from Orange Calcite’s infusion of bright vibrations into your lower chakras.

AROMAS:  Neroli, also called Orange Blossom, with its sweet, delicate, citrusy aroma, has powerful emotional effects. It calms and relaxes the body and spirit. Its frequency vibrates at the second chakra and encourages sensuality, peace, courage, and joy. A natural tranquilizer, Neroli is often used for anxiety and shock from trauma.   Not only do select essential oils enhance your joy, cheerfulness, creativity and confidence but they  can destroy harmful fungi, viruses, and bacteria in the air we breathe as well as inside our bodies. While being deadly to pathogenic microbes, they are harmless and helpful to humans.             Essential oils can act like hormones to keep our organs and bodily functions in balance and can even fill in the differences, or stimulate our bodies to produce, when our bodies do not manufacture the hormones we need.         Essential oils can elevate our bodily frequencies, helping us to stay healthy and immune to disease. Their vibrations resonate with our tissues in helpful ways according to our wishes and mental directions.       Essential oils are nature’s most powerful antioxidants that cleanse free radicals from our systems. This helps maintain a state of wellness and can extend our life spans.        Essential oils work in our limbic systems to help clear negative feelings and blocked emotions, thus eliminating the root causes of many diseases and conditions. Essential oils support and increase our intuitive powers and sharpen our spiritual awareness, which is why religions all over the world, from ancient times to the present, diffuse the aromas of essential oils as incense in their sanctuaries in order to facilitate effective meditation and prayer.

MEDITATION:      Put your hands in your lap, palms up, on top of each other. Left hand underneath, its palm touching the back of the fingers of the right hand. The tips of the thumbs touch gently.

Ingenious Indigo Third Eye Chakra

Ingenious, as in cleverly resourceful, describes our indigo  vortex of swirling POTENTIAL energy. Energy to see beyond the evident, to visualize the bigger picture if we have the intention of keeping the energy flowing and practice using the potential inherent within.

image

From Pinterest

Our third-eye, also known as the Brow Chakra, is a main point for external life energy (prana, chi) to enter and be distributed to the other chakras. It is also a key to ongoing spiritual development. Thus, keeping it as clear and balanced as possible is your ingenuity at work.

As humans we are energy transformers; we are alive and developing in proportion to how much of this universal energy we accept and how freely it flows through us. The better we transmit this energy or allow it to flow through us, the more alive and contented and effective we become.

Access to the universal energies and good physical and mental health is through meditation and intention.

Intentions such as:

“My mind is clear and agile.”
“I envision and create beauty and goodness.”
“My imagination is vivid and powerful.”
“I am open to the wisdom within me.”
“I am open to greater and greater spiritual awareness.”

CRYSTALS: Azurite has long been used to guide psychic development and increase metaphysical powers. It raises consciousness to the highest level, facilitates a meditative channeling state, urges the soul toward enlightenment, and controls spiritual unfoldment. A powerful healing stone and energy conduit, Azurite challenges your view of reality, releasing programmed belief systems so that you move into the unknown without fear. Drawing out emotional debris and ancient fears, and given your intentions, cleanses the emotional body and brings about inner peace.

AROMAS: Clary Sage  an oil all about “clarity”, giving you the ability to see clearly what is muddled, or to look ahead with vision and clarity at the possibilities.

Because Clary Sage oil is an aide in eliminating confusion and illusion, it’s often used on the brow and during meditation, contemplation, or creative work. It can help us see possibilities that we struggle to find when we’re lost in our own heads or thoughts and need to tap into something deeper, and, given intention, can bring light to dark places we’re struggling to move through. It helps us to open ourselves to intuition and inner wisdom to be guided by an understanding that is both deeper within and further beyond us.

MEDITATIONS:Put your hands before the lower part of your breast. The middle fingers are straight and touch at the tops, pointing forward. The other fingers are bended and touch at the upper two phalanges. The thumbs point towards you and touch at the tops.
Concentrate on the Third Eye chakra slightly above the point between the eyebrows.
Chant the sound OM or AUM.

Now spend as long as you desire in COMPLETE SILENT MEDITATION

YOGA:build awareness in your ajna chakra to begin to see everything in your life more clearly.
start by doing an awakening exercise for the ajna chakra. Take a comfortable seat. Softly close your eyes. Turn your gaze gently to your third eye, or the space between your eyebrows. Bring your hands to a prayer position and begin rubbing them together vigorously.

Once you have created a good amount of heat between your palms, cup them over your eyes. Let the eyes absorb the heat. Feel the heat soften any tension in or around the eyes. Repeat this process 3 times pausing to feel between each round.

Set Your Ajna Intention
Now set your intention for this practice. To grease the wheels, here are some themes that relate to the sixth chakra: Unlocking intuition; improving correct perception; seeing that you are connected to everyone and everything; inviting third eye wisdom to light your way. Feel free to use any of these or choose your own. As long as your intention feels true for you it has value.

Dolphin Plank
Come onto your hands and knees. Bring your elbows to the floor directly under your shoulders and bring your hands to Prayer (Anjali Mudra). Step the feet back as you straighten your legs behind you. The only points of contact with the floor are the balls of the feet and the forearms. Make your legs super strong, engage your belly and pull your front ribs in and up to widen the low back. This is a challenging pose, stick with it! Imagine the prayer hands and the third eye are connected by an invisible stream. That stream is your intention. Stay laser-focused on it for 5–10 breaths. Let your resolve to attach to something worthy of your attention make you strong. When you release the pose, rest on your belly.

Eagle Pose
Garudasana
From standing bend your knees. Lift your right knee and stack it on top of your left. Then wrap your right foot behind your left shin if possible. Bring your arms to shoulder height and stack your left elbow on top of your right, wrapping the right hand into the left. Keep elbows bent at 90 degrees. Balance here bringing your hips down low. Encourage your knees to move toward the midline instead of skewing to one side. The word “garuda” means to devour. Let this pose devour ego, doubt, and fear, clearing the way for loving intention. Spend 5 breaths on this side and then switch.

Warrior III Pose
Virabhadrasana III
From standing with arms by your side, engage your legs and begin to tip the pelvis forward. Send your left leg straight back and up until it is parallel to the floor. Extend the spine and head forward also keeping the upper body parallel to the floor. There should be plum line from the head to the left toes. Reach your arms straight back and firm the triceps. Lift your low belly to widen the low back and stand here strong and balanced. Connect with the third eye center and realize that the more we connect to everyone and everything, the easier it is for us to remain balanced even in the least stable conditions. Stay here for 5 breaths, soft but strong.

image

Dolphin Pose
This pose is similar to Downward-Facing Dog except its done on the forearms. Begin on your hands and knees. Place your elbows directly under your shoulders and bring your hands to anjali mudra as you did in Dolphin Plank. Tuck your toes and lift your hips up and back as you straighten your legs. Feet should be about hip-width apart. Firm your shoulder blades into the ribs and lift the shoulders away from the ears to free your neck. Walk your feet in a little closer to your arms, bring the thumbs of your prayer mudra to the third eye. Spend 3 breaths here, bringing all of your attention to the third eye center.

Child’s Pose
Balasana
Time to rest! From hands and knees, ease the sitbones back onto the heels into Child’s Pose. Gently rest your forehead on the earth, reach your arms forward and take 5 slow breaths.

Outstanding Orange Sacral Chakra MonDAY

 

Monday corresponds to our second from the bottom energy vortex, the Sacral Chakra.  This  chakra located just below our navel in our lower abdominal region vibrates  a deep, saturated orange and relates to reproduction on a physical level, creativity and joy and relationships on an emotional level and our energy and passions on a spiritual level.  How radically OUTSTANDING is that?!

   The Sacral Chakra influences personal creativity ranging from artistic expression to creative problem solving. Healthy sexual desire and expression is also controlled by the Sacral Chakra, though communicating sexual desires is also directly affected by the Throat Chakra    Medically referring to the sacrum or the region around the sacrum or  as an adjective, relating to sacred rites, this area of energy is CEO of the sexual organs, the uterus, prostrate, bladder, kidneys and the sense of taste. Sanscrit Name Svādhisthāna means “Sweetness” or “Seat of the Soul/Sacred home of the self” (Swa – vital force, soul; adhisthana – seat or abode).  SWEET!

    Intention that coincides with sacral chakra vibrational lessons is “to let go of control issues and judgements so we can surrender, go with the flow and be more open and receptive.”

      People with vital or balanced sacral chakras draw on their creativity and passion, and are comfortable with their physical and sexual identities. They tend to have a warm and constructive approach to both personal and professional relationships, and healthy family and love relations. OUTSTANDING  Personal Productions!

Form an outstanding, intimate and loving relationship with Yourself, so that you can have loving and intimate relationships with others.   Living with this  intention simply means to be mindful that your actions are purposeful with forward movement. You intend to be compassionate, you intend to forgive, and you intend to choose love. Shed your expectations of others. No one is perfect, nor should you expect them to be. Flaws can build character; acknowledge them and strive for growth over perfection. Because the places we grow mostly exist outside our comfort zone, we must continually challenge ourselves to try new things and take risks. Take a stand for what is right, even if you stand alone.

AFFIRMATION:  I am outstanding.

It is the center of the Life Force of the body, and controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body.

 With the intention of forming an intimate and loving relationship with yourself Carnelian restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity.  It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy and motivates for success.  Carnelian is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind.  It helps in trusting yourself and your perceptions.  It overcomes negative conditioning and encourages steadfastness.

Vibrant, Sassy, Friendly Vibrant Orange

Monday correlates with the SECOND chakra–the SACRAL, located just below your navel in the pelvic area. Your sexual energy and life force  energy is here. Emotional issues in the area to name a few are sexuality, creativity, shame and guilt. The SACRAL vibrates to the concert key of D (Ray)and is associated with the color ORANGE.  It is vibrates in the testes or ovaries and is associated with sexuality. 

orange sacral chakra symbol

If we learn at a young age it is not ok to ask for what we want, the sacral chakra becomes blocked, we go into a state of resistance about asking for our desires and instead focus on excessive people pleasing. We become blocked about receiving, which reduces our ability to give to others. A sacral imbalance will often leaves us feeling ‘not good enough’.

A balanced sacral chakra is evidenced by expressing a strong desire for what one wants in life as well as easy and healthy creativity and generous giving while being able to receive freely. Vibrant Joy!

Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself. Unfortunately, people hurt each other. You deserve to be free from the weight of resentment and anger. Forgiving can be a gift of peace to yourself. Be mindful not to over think, relive, or obsess over outcomes out of your control. Wanting, wishing and hoping for something to be different will never make it so. Accept, even when you can’t understand.

Finally, never forget your dreams. It’s ok to put them on the back burner as life unfolds in unexpected ways. But while they are there, let them simmer. Stir them up every now and then, and when the time is right, bring them forth and pursue them with passion.

Be humble, be grateful and always be mindful of fostering the values that lead to your higher self, and the ultimate state of happiness – inner peace.

The sacral chakra is the center of creation, the true seat of Shakti (the feminine aspect of the Hindu God). All aspects of the Goddess reign here and thus this becomes the seat of a woman’s power. (The solar plexus area is the power center of the Godhead, where ideally men hold their seat of power.) (It is interesting to note that if we, as humans, feel threatened or disempowered, we tend to put down layers of fat for protection over our seats of power. Have you ever noticed that women tend to have excess adipose tissue below their wasteline – protecting the sacral chakra – whereas most men tend to create fat over their solar plexus chakra – in that their bellies hang over their belts. Could it be that we are protecting these sacred power centers physiologically against energetic attack? )

In this second chakra not only do we create life, but also all forms of creation such as art, music, poetry, etc. It is a very sacred and powerful place for women to manifest their dreams and desires, as well as stand in combat to protect those dreams and desires. In the varying aspects of the Goddess, we not only have the nurturing mother, the young sexual maiden, the wise old crone, but also the warrior, the artist, the intellectual, the sacred prostitute etc. We are all faces of the Goddess in the sacral chakra and play out all her different personalities.

In this area we also hold control issues. If we are weak or lacking energy in this chakra, we can give over our control to others and become disempowered, impotent and fearful. Physical complaints such as prostate problems, PMS, fibroids, menstrual problems and lack of sexual drive can occur when the second chakra is imbalanced. Lower backache, sacroiliac problems, sciatica, and bowel dysfunction can also be attributed to a challenged sacral chakra. We need the creative life energy pulsing through this area to maintain homeostasis in the lower organs and stabilize health

SOUNDS: Search for ‘Meditation Music for Sacral Chakra.  One I found was 288Hz – Sacral Chakra Healing Frequency | Tibetan Singing Bowl Therapy | Healing Camp Day #26

AROMAS:  Try Bergamot Essential Oil in the diffuser to energize and balance your orange swirling sacral chakra.  The aroma of Bergamot EO is a citrus reminiscent to that of orange, but it is wonderfully more complex.  It almost seems to possess an underlying floral characteristic.This sweet, lively, and citrusy oil will enliven your senses and encourage the release of repressed emotions.

Bergamot is uplifting as well as gently relaxing. It helps to disperse stagnant energy, releasing stress and tension.

Orange Carnelian

CRYSTALS: Orange Carnelian, Citrine, Milky Quartz, and Moonstone                   Carnelian, in its beautiful shades of orange, stimulates the Sacral Chakra. A stabilising stone, Carnelian restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity.  It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy and motivates for success.  Carnelian is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind.  It helps in trusting yourself and your perceptions.

MEDITATION:    Put your hands in your lap, palms up, on top of each other. Left hand underneath, its palm touching the back of the fingers of the right hand. The tips of the thumbs touch gently.

Concentrate on the Sacral chakra at the sacral bone (on the lower back).                  Chant the sound VAM.

Affirmation: “I am radiant, beautiful and strong and enjoy a healthy and passionate life”

——————–

As I focus on this orange light that radiates from my sacral centre, I feel radiant, alive and strong.I am able to feel all the positive emotions, I embrace them as they allow me to stand in power, I am able to feel all the negative emotions, feelings of fear, anxiousness, doubt and I truly understand what causes them, I accept them as they bring about feelings of joy, dignity and peace as they teach me lessons of growth and truth. I am at peace and I lovingly release any negatives feelings that cause me any discomfort and pain.

(A deep breath in) I lovingly acknowledge, accept and appreciate.

YOGA:     Express creativity!

Connect with Your Creative Energy:
As you use hip openers and forward folds to work with this chakra, cultivate a sense of fluidity and ease in your low belly, low back, hips, sacral plexus, and pelvis.
One way to access the potential that lies within this chakra is through creative movement. Everyone, including you, is inherently, wildly creative. So find a private place in your home, put on some fun music and start moving your body. Just move—be silly, be soulful, let it rip.

Creative movement is native to you, you just have to remind yourself by doing it. And when you do, you’ll also unlock creative thinking. Creative thinking is what empowers you to take positive actions that can change your life and the lives of others. So what are you waiting for?
After your private dance party take a few moments to feel the vibration of blood flowing and the pulse of your heart beating. Appreciate the inner flow in preparation for your a little yoga practice:
#1. Dancer’s Pose–This yoga pose stretches thighs, groin, and abdomen and improves balance.
Stand in Mountain Pose, inhale and firmly root your right foot into the ground.
Move your weight into the right foot.
Exhale and lift your left heel toward your buttock as you bend your knee.
Reach back with your left hand and grasp your left ankle or your foot.
Raise your right arm up towards the ceiling and hold it there.
Begin to lift your left leg upwards away from the ground and your body. Keep lifting.
As you lift your left leg, tilt your upper body forward.
Hold the posture and feel the energy flowing through your pelvic area.
This is an excellent yoga pose for balance. It requires a great deal of concentration.

Dancer's Pose

2.Child’s Pose,–This is the most powerful pose (my personal favorite and a whole lot easier than #1) to become in touch with your own breathing and with the movement of the air in your abdomen. In this posture, you can let the life force of water  flow and awaken yourself to your inner life as you observe your breath.

For that desired  vibrant, sassy, friendly balance add more orange fruits and vegetables, honey and nuts to your diets. This vibrating orange energy vortex is connected to our sense of taste which explains why we deal (or don’t deal) with our emotions with food as they both correspond to the energy vibration of the Sacral Chakra.If you go to the market pick yourself up some sunflowers!!

Namaste. And may the Orange force be with fabulous creative YOU today!
