Welcome to the 7 Day Chakra Balancing Program Day Five: The Throat Chakra- 5th Chakra.
If you are just joining in here, please see blog post Overview for information on how to begin this porgram.
If you have the Spirals of Light Chakra Sprays you will use Expression & Creativity Spray today. To learn more about the Chakra Balancing Sprays check out our video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlOnwvyMaoU
The Throat Chakra is referred to as Vishuddha in Sanskrit. Color: Blue. Stones used in this spray are Sodalite and Turquoise. Essential oils used in this spray are Orange, Peppermint, Lime
This Chakra is located at the throat. This center is associated with communication on all levels. The Throat Chakra is the center from which we express ourselves and how we communicate to others. It is a place of creative expression. It is the place from where we “speak our truth“. The Throat Chakra is the gateway to the higher spiritual realms and is sometimes called “the mouth of God”.
An open Throat Chakra allows us to easily express our feelings into words and say what needs to be said, even to ourselves. When the Throat Chakra is out of balance we suppress and hide our feelings The physical connection to this Chakra: Thyroid gland, throat, lungs, vocal cord, immune system.
Use this Chakra Spray to allow an opening for clear communication between your heart and mind so that you may speak and express yourself from a place of truth. This Chakra Spray can assist in finding and expressing your creative talents.
Create your sacred space and give yourself some quiet time. Light a candle and if you desire, play some soothing yet up beat music. Close your eyes and spray the Chakra Spray at the top your head several times, allowing the mist to gently flow down your body. Breathe in the pure aroma of the mist. Visualize a bright blue luminous color of light before you. Perhaps you see the deep blue color of the ocean or visualize the open clear blue sky. Bring to your minds eye the color blue. Allow this beautiful blue color to flow all around your body. You are being bathed in a bright, deep blue vibration of light. Hold this visualization for several minutes. When you are ready, open your eyes and tune into to how you are feeling.
Now mist yourself again with the 5th Chakra Spray, this time direct the spray to the Throat Chakra area, being careful not to spray the mist directly into your eyes. Now close your eyes and take in 3 deep cleansing breaths. Relax your body and begin to think about what stands in the way of you fully expressing yourself. What limitations are you putting on yourself in the areas of creativity and expression?. If you had all the time and money in the world, what projects would you devote yourself to? Give yourself a few minutes to reflect on these questions. When you feel ready open your eyes and write your response in your journal.
Keeping a journal is a wonderful form of self expression and if you don’t already do so, you might want to continue journal writing for the next several weeks. Just write whatever flows into your mind, don’t edit yourself, just let your thoughts flow onto the paper.
Affirmations of the Day: Say these affirmations while you spray yourself one last time before going on with your day. Remember to take your Throat Chakra Spray with you, so you can use it throughout the day. If you have a tape recorder, speak your affirmations into the tape recorder and listen to your own voice saying the affirmations.
- I speak my truth
- I communicate and express myself easily
- I am a creative being and I express that creativity in many ways.
Do you speak your truth, act your truth, live your truth? How do you express yourself? Pay attention to your words today. How often do you find yourself using negative expressions to express yourself. “I can’t stand this”, or “he’s driving me nuts”. Go back and re-read the information about the heart chakra that we worked on yesterday. Allow yourself to express your truth with kindness and love.
Here is a quote from Dr. Wayne Dyer to help get you through the day: “Don’t die with your music still inside you. Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs your soul.”
You may want to wear the color blue today. Wear Chakra Jewelry with the stones Turquoise or Blue Sodalit. Eat blue colored foods, Blueberries would be a great choice and are so healthy for you!
Sing throughout the day, while you are taking a shower, driving in the car. Sing loud and often. Try chanting and singing Mantras today. Ommmmm. There is a popular saying going around these days, something to the affect of, dance as if no one is watching. Dance today, put on some lively music and move! Read some poetry or better yet write a short poem. Go to the library and take out some books on art. View paintings by the masters and see what inspires you.
Let this day be about finding ways to express yourself. At the end of the day, pick up your journal and write about your experiences focusing on the Throat Chakra today. Did you find ways to express yourself ? What inspired you today? Did you speak your truth today? Did you sing your song? How would you rate your energy level today?
Before going to sleep, spray your bed, pillow and bedroom and breathe in the aroma of the Throat Chakra as you sleep.
