The Chakras are an ideal roadmap for personal growth and development. In 2017 we are journeying through the Chakras and focusing on one Chakra a month. June brings us to the Throat Chakra, the center of communication and self-expression. This month, the Throat Chakra asks you to examine the story of your life; are you the author creating your own story, or do you let others write your story for you? Are you the main character in your life story or are you just secondary? Is your life story truthful or a work of fiction? Do you speak the truth to yourself and others?
Brief Overview of Chakras: The Chakras are the main energy centers in our subtle body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura or electromagnetic field. There are main Chakras, minor, subpersonal, and transpersonal Chakras. The Chakras’ function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions. Each chakra has personal growth themes, functions, and purposes. The concept of the Chakras has been around for thousands of years.
The Throat Chakra is located in the throat and neck. It is the center of communication, expression, and where we experience the world non-verbally through vibration, sound, symbols, myths, and archetypes. The Throat Chakra teaches us lessons about self-expression. The Sanskrit name is Vishudda, which means “the pure place” or “especially pure.” So naturally, we must ask ourselves: Is my communication pure? Am I true to my word? Do I express myself both verbally and non-verbally with truth and clarity? Some Throat Chakra needs that must be met for healing and transcendence to occur include the ability to express one’s self non-verbally (through body language, music, art, etc), healthy verbal communication, and an appreciation for art and beauty.
June 2017 Throat Chakra Forecast: The Throat Chakra is the gateway for truth and communication. Stories are stored in the subconsciousness and told through the Throat Chakra. The Throat Chakra is where we access the archetypes, myths, and symbols that help give our life meaning, purpose, and guide our character traits and personalities. We are the storytellers of our life. It’s time to evaluate and critique your life story. Are you the author creating your own story, or do you let others write your story for you? Are you the main character in your life story or are you just secondary? Is your awareness, energy, and attention always on someone or something else? Is your life story truthful or a work of fiction? Do you speak the truth to yourself and others? What’s the biggest lie you have told yourself about your life and why it is where it is now? As the storyteller, you alone have the power to edit, rewrite, and modify things in your life that are no longer working for you. You are powerful over your situation.
Throat Chakra Blend
- 3 drops German (Blue) chamomile
- 4 drops Rosemary essential oil
- 5 drops Sage essential oil
- 1 ounce of a vegetable oil like coconut, jojoba, or almond
Blend the essential oils into the vegetable oil then massage some over the throat and neck area. As you do this, repeat the following affirmations: “My thoughts are positive and I always express myself both verbally and non-verbally with truth and clarity. I am the storyteller of my life and have power over each and every situation.” Seal your intent by participating in a throat chakra activity such as singing, chanting, or listening to music.
