CONSIDER: Vibration lies at the core of communication. SOUND originates as VIBRATION from w/in our bodies & comes to form WORDS as we move our throat, mouth & lips in various combinations. When people talk about GOOD VIBES they’re quite literally communicating a desire to be around a particular type of vibration. We’re constantly giving off & receiving VIBES which is why it’s so valuable to understand how this energy center is functioning inside of our own bodies AKA YOUR VIBE ATTRACTS YOUR TRIBE
WHY IT MATTERS: When we’re in healthy alignment in this area, we’re able to speak clearly through the HEART with a full voice while also balancing the act of truly listening, and FEELING & RECEIVING messages from the people around us
CHALLENGE: This chakra is tied to our ability to detect VIBRATIONS. If we’re not in tune here, we can wind up alienating the people around us, misleading others, or attracting situations & relationships that don’t match the frequencies that best serve us
IMBALANCE: Can appear as THYROID issues, overtalking, shyness, stubbornness, and/or inability to express your thoughts
THROAT CHAKRA: Our fifth chakra isn’t just about expressing or vocalizing our truths.. it’s also tied to the ability to LISTEN & take note of the energy that’s around us. It’s related to our mouths, ears, throat & upper shoulders. For me, as I begin to attune to this area in my throat, I am very able to feel a connection into my INNER EARS
PRACTICE: Close your eyes and do your best to try & feel the extremely subtle energy in the area of your throat, mouth & ears. It’s a delicate energy that can require more attention to find and feel. For me, the energy in this chakra feels WHISPY and becomes detectable only when I really get patient & focus on taking slow, calm breaths in measured pace
