Thursday’s Swirling with the Blue Throat Chakra
As Blues singer, Bob Marley says, we are all one love—the only walls of separation are created by the human ego.
When our mind is unfettered by ego’s incessant desires and judgments, it is then we can truly be free to express our real selves–
SO, let it GO….”sing a song; Sing out loud/Sing out strong/Sing of good things not bad/Sing of happy not sad….Sing, sing a song/Make it simple to last/Your whole life long/
Don’t worry that it’s not/Good enough for anyone/Else to hear/
Just sing, sing a song.” (Carpenters’ “Sing”)
Songs can be in any form: visual art, playwriting, sculpting, singing, dancing, performance arts, quilting, storytelling—any kind of communication that reveals your heart, the soul’s tune, the real You, the Universal Source from which all springs.
This is the throat chakra’s energetic function: COMMUNICATION
“What the heart center feels
the throat center may reveal”
SOUNDS: Put on some Throat Chakra Meditation Music. One that I found particularly inspiring is (iTunes)”Throat Chakra” by Compassion Sound Healers Quartz Singing Bowls,
AROMAS: Lavender or Frankincense
CRYSTALS: Blue stones like Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli, Blue Lace Agate and Aquamarine if worn at the throat will be helpful to the health and balance (think no more pathetic wobbly croaking) of the throat chakra.
And SING right through the blue throat chakra in whatever way you feel like realizing the potential of your energy!!!!!!!
INTENTIONS: Repeat often and with heart felt positive intention
I AM discernment in all of my communications.
I know how to listen to my Heart.
I know how to listen to others.
What I say is worth listening to. I AM worth being heard.
MEDITATION: Feel your breath in your throat area. Breathe in these intentions as you say them out loud. Breathe out all arrogance, bitter anger, and resentment. Breathe in acceptance. Breathe out all rejection and closed-mindedness and all ideas that you are not heard, listened to or appreciated.
Breathe in Truth.
Breathe out Truth, Love, Forgiveness, Appreciation, Respect and Gratitude, and imagine the circulation of all of that out to all others.
As you are permitted to speak your Truth and express yourself freely as your own Divine Right, so are all others.
Express Love, Gratitude, Truth and Forgiveness
YOGA for balancing the throat chakra:
Fish Pose deals with opening the throat and spine in a way that can feel oddly vulnerable until you find your own expression. The same applies to communicating honestly with yourself and others. In the beginning it can be uncomfortable until you find your own genuine voice. Then, it is liberating.
Start by laying flat on your back and relaxing as long as you need (corpse pose)
Staying flat on your back, bring your feet together. With your arms straight by your sides, lay your palms on the floor, then tuck your hands in underneath your buttocks. Arch your spine, tilt your head backwards so that your crown rests on the ground. Hold for 30 seconds. To come out of the Fish, slide your head back and then lower your chest. To finish, relax by lying in the Corpse.
See YALL Later: Throughout the day be mindful of blue colors to ponder on, look up at the wonder of the blue sky, crack the waiting walls of the ego and remind yourself that you are so very precious, energized and worth being heard.
