Communication And Our Throat Chakra
Part #6 of the course "Chakra Info Series"
Say What Needs To Be Said...
... In The Nicest Possible Way
I recall back to my school years when children would say "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me"
We couldn't have been further from the truth. You see, words have an energy of their own. Remember, everything is energy so it is beneficial to learn how to use your energy on purpose.
As an energy healer, one of the most common energy blockages that I see in the throat chakra is due to people not saying the things that need to be said. Some people will hold their words in because they are scared to express their feelings or their thoughts to another person.
Sometimes they think that by expressing a certain thing, it could hurt the other person or maybe the other person simply wouldn't understand or just wouldn't listen ..... so the words remain trapped in the throat, building up an energy block.
We need to realise that unsaid words are blocked opportunities for growth. Take your unsaid words to the person concerned. Take a deep breath before expressing them .... and .... begin your sentence with ....
"I need to tell you something and before I do, I want you to know that it is not my intention to upset you ....."
You have just laid the foundation for what is to come. You have calmed yourself. You have got the other persons full attention. You have respected yourself and the recipient of the words to come.
Breathe again .... and then, using your most gentle voice, let your words slowly come out. Speak with love because love is an energy too and when we learn how to use love energy in our words, growth is inevitable.
The throat chakra is not just about communication however! Let's take a closer look at the throat chakra.
The throat chakra is located in the throat/neck region
It relates to communication and self-expression regardless of what others may think.
When the throat chakra is balanced we can comfortably and openly express our dreams and find it easy to communicate anything we might like to talk about
Imbalances can be caused by gossiping, spreading hatred and criticism, holding back by not saying what needs to be said. Putting down another with sarcasm or angry words or not expressing our owns truths, ultimately only harms ourselves
When our throat chakra is blocked we can feel like nobody cares about our opinions and often shy away from self - expression due to worrying about what others may think
Blockages could cause mouth, throat, thyroid, neck and upper shoulder problems
The throat chakra is associated with the thyroid. The role of the thyroid is to stimulate metabolism and along with the parathyroid glands ( beside or near thyroid), controls the body’s circulating calcium levels.
The throat chakra governs the bronchial, vocals, metabolism, lungs, growth, hearing
