The Seven Chakras

We all have chakras or energy centers in our body. In Sanskrit, Chakra means a wheel or disk. Chakras are “wheels” or vortexes of swirling energy throughout our body. We have 7 main Chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown.

The fifth Charka, the Throat Chakra, is commonly known as the “voice of the body.” It is located in the centre of the throat and neck and is the place energy from the other chakras is expressed.  The Throat Chakra is responsible for communication, self-expression, creativity and judgment.  It is represented by the colour blue.

A healthy Throat Chakra invites active communication, expression, good listening, patience, honesty, authenticity and receptivity.  An imbalance in this Chakra can lead to poor communication skills, doubtfulness, fear around expressing yourself or your feelings, verbal outbursts or impatience, manipulation, lies, arrogance, critical behaviour, shyness or talking excessively, and the inability to be a good listener. This energy centre allows you to express your Truth, but also allows you to listen and hear another.

Throat Chakra Affirmation

I am open, honest and clear in my communication. I have a right and am strong enough to express myself, to speak my truth clearly and freely. I communicate my feelings, thoughts and beliefs with ease. I express and nourish myself creatively. I lead an authentic life of integrity and share my experiences, knowledge and Truth freely and willingly. I am a good listener. I also know how to listen to the whispers of my body and feelings to understand my Truth. I am grateful for life and am at peace. I take good care of my physical body, my emotional needs and my spirituality. I am an expression of Love.

Simple tips for balancing your Throat Chakra 

  • Use the colour blue – Crystals, lights, clothing, furniture or accessories. Envision the colour blue filling up in the centre of your neck and throat. Inhale, fill up with a soft blue light, and as you exhale, feel yourself gently becoming comfortable expressing all that you are.
  • Open Up – Open your mouth! Sing, hum, talk, use your mouth in as many ways as possible.
  • Speak Up – Start small, even tiny if you have to. But find ways to begin to express yourself and feel safe doing so. Express your Truth(s). Let the baby steps snowball, building momentum, and aligning you with your authenticity.
  • Journal – Journaling is a great way to express your inner Truth and find out how you are feeling. You can sift through your thoughts until you get to the core of your feelings and beliefs. This is particularly helpful for acknowledging then releasing junk that is no longer serving you.
  • Blue Skies Ahead – Experience a sunny, clear, blue sky. Breathe deeply, meditate, r sit quietly in nature gazing up at the sky.

About this 12-part Reiki Series

In this 12-part series, readers will learn about the energy of life, how it affects us, how we can utilize it in advantageous ways and ultimately, how to achieve the Ultimate Success in their very own lives: true joy, love and happiness.  I will describe the Chakras (their location, connectivity and more), what energy healing is, and how the Laws of the Universe are at play at all times.  Additionally, I will detail how readers can open themselves to receiving, to flow with life instead of resisting, and how we are driven by fear and love. At the end of the 12-part series, readers should have a better understanding of their bodies, themselves and how to expand and enhance their experiences.

Next month I will cover ‘The Third Eye Chakra’. I hope you’ll join me then 🙂
