Welcome to Day 15 of Chakra Vitality.
Today we’re moving on to the visualisation part of the throat chakra.
The throat chakra represents speaking our truth – voicing our needs – communicating clearly.
I always chuckle when I think of the old saying:
Your parents spend the first two years of your life trying to get you to talk…
… then the next 18 years trying to get you to shut up.
There’s much wisdom in this.
Young children usually have no problem voicing their needs or saying what they think. They are totally unconstrained by society’s idea of social norms and etiqutte.
Over the years, we are taught what is acceptable and what is not. We also have many experiences that teach us to shut down; not to speak our truth; not to ask for what we need. It’s no wonder we find it so hard by the time we’re adults!
The Chakra Vitality routine can help you to gently let go of old decisions that are now hindering your communication – with others or yourself, if that’s what you want.
Clearing out the old baggage makes space for new choices. It doesn’t have to be radical or dramatic. Baby steps are a cool way to go.
Over at the forum today we’re talking about how we could make fresh choices – as of today – to help those around us feel more free to speak their truth. Be the change you wish to see… 😉 Helping others on this one is perhaps the best way of making the changes in our own life.
P.S. Here’s how it all fits together so far:
