We are creating the world by how we speak to each other. The words we choose; the tonality that we choose. The entire human collective is in our dark night of the soul right now. New knowledge and intelligence will sing through my voice and new solutions will come forward for us to change the course of our history. Tom Kenyon
This month we are discussing how the state of our chakras affects our ability to have a life full of joy and internal peace. We’re looking for that sustained level of well-being that surfaces as we align our outside activities, the world of doing, with our inner world of being.
Each chakra plays a vital role in this dance of joy. Your fifth chakra is located in your throat and is the seat of your ability to communicate, verbally and non-verbally. It is the chakra most closely associated with speaking your truth.
If this chakra and aura layer are clogged with foreign energy, you may find yourself verbalizing other peoples’ truths, or find it hard to express your thoughts clearly and fully. Have you ever said something and then thought, “That doesn’t sound like me! That sounds more like my mother (or father, or friend)!” That is foreign energy clogging up your fifth chakra. It’s hard to live an authentic life – a life full of purpose and meaning – if this chakra is full of other people’s opinions, judgments and thoughts. Of course one of the best ways of cleaning out this foreign energy is to use your tools! Blowing the energy up in a rose is my #1 go-to tool for clearing out my throat chakra. I also enjoy sound meditation.
“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.” Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine, the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York
Tom Kenyon is a world renowned sound healer. He’s featured in the movie Song of the New Earth and his website is full of information and downloadable meditations to bring healing and balance to all of your chakras.
Living an authentic life – a life full of joy and inner peace – is a challenge. Clearing our chakras from foreign energy (the shoulds, opinions, and judgments of others) allows our body to return to balance. And from this state of balance we resonate with our inner truth, not someone else’s.
