Truthful Thursday Throat Chakra

The Throat Chakra, associated with Thursdays, Sky Blue, Truth and with your Self Expression and Communication is a vortex of POTENTIAL energy.  It is a pathway for your life energy to flow as you express to yourself and others what is in your heart–your TRUTH.

Blue sky and water

Vishuddha, throat chakra,  is the bridge from the heart chakra to the upper most spiritual energy centers. A person with a balanced 5th chakra will express the emotions in their heart, may express their joy for life through song, desires harmonious connection with others and focuses on appreciation of global matters instead of fixating on nationality.

When our throat chakra is in balance, we are able to listen and communicate well. When we are having trouble expressing ourselves, or having trouble with communication (being unable to say what you want to say to others and/or not truly listening to what you are being told) the throat chakra is unbalanced and the energy is throttled and flipped around willy-nilly.  This imbalance will first resonate as a tingle, tickle, ache, lump, cough, trouble swallowing or sensitivity  in the throat region stemming anywhere from the base of the neck to the ears.

As soon as the emotional issue has been resolved through meditation(read that as cleaning out negativity cobwebs), the symptoms will clear up or simply completely vanish.
When in balance the throat chakra offers us faithfulness to our true selves, an ability to express ourselves and our ideas, good communication skills,  and truthfulness.

 

SOUNDS: Meditation Music for the Throat Chakra.  One I found was Open Throat Chakra/Meditation Music and Vibrations at 384 hz by Meditative Music-Meditative Mind

AROMAS:  Diffuse  Frankincense, Camomile, Lavender or Sandalwood

You can also make a throat chakra self-Expression Mist to be worn as a body spray: 8 drops lavender essential oil, 4 drops coriander essential oil, 8 drops bergamot essential oil, 8 drops frankincense essential oil and 1/2 cup  water.  Mix in mister bottle then shake rather vigorously then mist  on yourself and all about when desired.

CRYSTALS: Crystals which vibrate near the same frequency as  the Throat Chakra are  Celestite, Lapis Lazuli,  and Turquoise…..  Let your intentions for expressing your compassionate heart clearly to yourself and others be known for the crystals and aromas to be most effective.  Repeat your intentions frequently throughout the day and notice the power of the fragrances and crystals.

MEDITATION:
One way to connect with the swirling blue throat chakra is to chant. Take a comfortable seat. Softly close our eyes and lips. Relax your face and jaw. Begin to make the sound “mmmmmmmmm” at whatever resonant tone is natural for you( ’so’ on the scale if you desire) Feel the vibration all around the tongue, lips, cheeks, jaw, ears and throat. Imagine this sound vibrating loose any tension in the throat, neck and jaw region. Let go of the times you have had to bite your tongue or have had a lump in your throat from the fear of speaking up. Feel the vibration purifying and freeing your throat energy.

YOGA:
From a comfortable seated position, tend your spine long and root down into your foundation. Reach your right arm out to the right. Gently begin to release your head and let it hang to the right. Drag your right shoulder and shoulder blade down to create a stable foundation. Now extend your left arm out about 6 inches above the floor and reach out and down to create some traction and a big stretch on the left side of the neck. Spend 5-10 breaths here. Be patient. It takes time for the blood to move through and heal tight and stiff muscle tissue, so try to hold for as long as you can without pain. Make your breaths deep and slow and keep your eyes and jaw relaxed. Gently return to center, pause for a moment, and notice the difference, then switch sides.

Fish pose——Relax for a bit in the Corpse Pose. Stay flat on your back and bring your feet together. With your arms straight by your sides, lay your palms on the floor, then tuck your hands underneath your buttocks. When ready arch your spine tilting your head back 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 YA LATER:
Drink plenty of water today—and every day.  Add lemons and lime, sans sweeteners, to spike the water and keep your pH alkaline.  Apples and peaches can also help to cleanse, clear and open our throat chakra.

Try to spend some of your day in connection with blue skies, calm, still water or the open sea as you are aware of , listening to and expressing your feelings–your TRUE self– genuinely and without fear of what other may think.  Believe in your ability to courageously come forward and tell your truth. Infuse your projects with this kind of daring drive.

Throat Chakra Clearing

Thursday correlates with our Throat Chakra.  It is cleaning for Chakras this week in celebration of SPRING so we could clear our THROATS.   When our Throat Chakra, associated with Self Expression and Communication is cleared and  balanced, we are able to listen and communicate well. When we are having trouble expressing ourselves, or having trouble with communication (being unable to say what we want to say to others and/or not truly listening to what we are being told) the throat chakra is clogged and imbalanced.

An imbalance will first resonate as a tingle, ache or sensitivity in the throat region. (Stemming from the base of the neck to the ears)

Clearing the throat chakra involves learning to let go and trusting your inner voice. Not a small task for a lot of us!  As with the other Chakras we have to start by sweeping out the muddy negative emotions that have been tracked in by who knows what all?!   Those dusty particles of guilt, hurt and resentment foul up the smooth blue whirling vortex of energy that vibrates our throat, neck, thyroid gland, jaw, mouth and tongue that connect to our heart, thymus gland, vocal chords and mind.  

Dusting away, then shaking out negative emotions,  can work wonders to restore energy balance in the throat chakra. Sometimes a good cry can also help alleviate a blockage of the fifth chakra.

Practicing mindful speech, action, and deeds can help you maintain throat chakra balance. For example, talk openly and honestly with others on a regular basis.

Meditating on and incorporating the throat chakra’s color, blue, into your life can also calm emotional upheaval. For instance, introduce blue-colored flowers or decor to your home environment.

Blue Poppy

“…I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body.” ~ Eckart Tolle       With their simple presence, flowers have a mystical way of raising our spirits as well as the vibrational energy of any room.

Blue flowers have not only the  color but also the  essence that vibrationally corresponds with our throat chakra. Meditating upon a particular flower, therefore, can help us open and align our Throat Chakra. Place the flowers in a pot or vase where you can see them often. You can also use a photo or painting of that flower. As you gaze upon the flower, ponder the qualities you’d like to develop. 

The throat chakra carries the energies of verbal expression and speaking our highest truth. Vibrating in a light blue, it is  represented by hyacinths, Texas Bluebonnets (Lupines), Delphiniums (Larkspur) and morning glories. If you are feeling a block in communication with a partner or feel that you are not being heard, bring one of these beautiful blue flowers into your home and meditate on the value of expressing your highest truth.    ~Traci Pedersen

SOUNDS:  Search for Meditation Music for healing the Throat Chakra.  One I found was Heal Thyself-Throat Chakra Healing Music by Meditative Mind-Meditative Music

CRYSTALS:    Lapis Lazuli can remind us of the power of the spoken word and is reportedly one of the best stones to use when opening and balancing the Throat Chakra as it helps to foster full verbal expression, and clears problems caused by “swallowing your tongue” or ‘frogs’. Lapis encourages clear, truthful expression when sharing information with others, including an easier voicing/communication of anger. Be sure to give the crystals your intention to clear your throat chakra

AFFIRMATION: ” I am clearing my throat chakra to communicate clearly and compassionately.”

AROMAS:  Thyme, Roman Chamomile and or Clary Sage. I mixed these three in blue votive candles for Thursdays.

MEDITATION:   To begin meditation Open the Throat Chakra by  crossing your fingers on the inside of your hands, without the thumbs. Let the thumbs touch at the tops, and pull them slightly up.   Concentrate on the Throat chakra at the base of the throat.

Chant the sound HAM.

YOGA:   Fish Pose (Matsyasana)             The lesson of the fifth chakra involves developing the ability to clearly communicate with yourself and others. Often we  don’t say what we mean or mean what we say because we’re distracted by unnecessary layers that don’t allow us to embrace our authentic Selves–think of it as your ego tromping mud around your clubhouse.

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.

Affirmation:  I communicate clearly and compassionately.

SOUND:  Strike up some meditation music for the throat chakra on ye olde YouTube or someplace else handy.

————–

The Throat Chakra connects the heart center–ether, to your communications.  Spend some time mindfully

Singing of happy, not sad.  Don’t worry that it’s not good enough…..

Humming
Chanting —-
Mantra/chanting meditation: Focus on your breathing.  On the inhale, say SO. Hold it for a few seconds, then breathe back out. HAM. Concentrate on the variations in the vibrations and frequencies while you hum this chant in and out. Set your focus on how the vibrations feel as they resonate in your throat. Allow these chants and vibrations to open the throat so that energy may pass back and forth once more
Spending time outside looking at the sky, watching the clouds
Deep breathing exercises
Wearing blue gemstones, like sapphires, aquamarines, etc.

Speaking truthfully
Listening with an open mind and heart to others
Writing down your truth in a journal

In just about every case, when you feel that people don’t listen to you, it’s not really the truth – it’s just your belief. As soon as you start speaking, people start listening. And even if they don’t agree with you, just remember – they had to listen to you in the first place to be able to disagree with you. The more you speak up and share, the more opportunities you give others to hear you. The more you listen to others with an open mind and heart, the more you teach them about how to do the same. As you appreciate truth and honesty from others, so do they appreciate the same from you. So don’t be shy now! Open up and let others hear the one unique voice that is yours
“We turn outward, attracted by the beauty we see in created things without realizing that they are only a reflection of the real beauty. And the real beauty is within us.” —

 

FRAGRANCE: Throat Chakra Essential Oil Blend:  lavender, frankincense, rose geranium, and  tea tree or anyone of them.

CRYSTALS: —-This chakra primarily resonates to the color blue. There are many beautiful stones in a range of blue shades that can be easily obtained, and many are stunning stones to look at.

Meditation:

Mudras are special hand positions, to open chakras. The mudras have the power to send more energy to particular chakras.
To enhance the effect, sounds are chanted. These sounds are from Sanskrit letters. When chanted, they cause a resonation in your body that you can feel at the chakra they are meant for.

For pronunciation, keep in mind that:
the “A” is pronounced as in “ah,”
the “M” is pronounced as “mng” (“ng” like in “king”).

Do a meditation for 7 – 10 breaths. Chant the sound several times each breath (for example three times)..(Read more at: http://www.eclecticenergies.com/chakras/open.php)

To Open the Throat Chakra:  Cross your fingers on the inside of your hands, without the thumbs. Let the thumbs touch at the tops, and pull them slightly up.
Concentrate on the Throat chakra at the base of the throat.
Chant the sound HAM.

Jack Gilbert –

“We must risk delight,” Jack Gilbert wrote. “We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world……. We must live our  most creative lives as a means of fighting back against the ruthless furnace of this world.”

Be BRAVE, express what is in your hearts so you will  know the world as richly as it longs to be known.

We all know that when courage dies, creativity dies with it. We all know that fear is a desolate boneyard where our dreams go to desiccate in the hot sun. This is common knowledge; sometimes we just don’t know what to do about it.

The Throat Chakra is the center of our communication, self-expression, and creativity. Its highest function is listening to our Highest Self and communicating our Truth to others, expressing our True Selves honestly and openly. This chakra urges us to find our True Self, communicate it through our creativity, and use the creative force of our higher emotions to move our consciousness into the higher dimensions. And just as we need to learn to listen to our Higher Self, we must also learn to listen to others. Through the Throat Chakra, we learn how to direct and express our creative force in all areas of our life, manifesting what we desire through our Word.

Even if you just express at least one piece of your heart today that will be FABULOUS!!!!!!

Namaste,

Priscilla
