Chakra Sunday – Throat Chakra

Happy Sunday, folks!

It’s Chakra Sunday time! We have been gradually making our way through all the chakras, what they affect, and how we can help to bring them into balance. Today is the turn on the fifth chakra, and the one responsible for our communication.

The Throat Chakra connects our higher chakras to our centre and the heart, by way of our communication with others, with ourselves, and with the Universe. When this Chakra is out of balance, we may find it difficult to express ourselves, or feel trapped by an inability to speak our own truths. Physically, we can experience problems with the Thyroid Gland, sore throats and sinus infections, or neck and shoulder pain.

Some verbal affirmations can really help to heal the Throat Chakra. Saying out loud,

“I am honest and clear in all my communications. I am able to speak my truth with grace and kindest. My thoughts and opinions are worthy. I express myself with love and I know when to listen.”

With the Throat Chakra, it will be really beneficial if you can say these affirmations out loud, but if you are uncomfortable, or unable to, communicating them clearly to yourself while in meditation will be effective.

Sitting comfortably, take a few deep, cleansing breaths and once you find your rhythm, visualise a bright blue flower sitting upon your throat and opening up little by little with each inhalation. Focus on the colour of the flower and its beautiful blue petals. Take a few moments to pay attention to the area around your throat and any sensations you experience. Don’t worry or let negative thoughts about those sensations distract you, the throat is a sensitive area and sometimes, even in meditation, any sensation of restriction can be alarming. Just let the sensation be, remain calm and bring your attention back to the flower and its petals. Say the above affirmation for as long as you feel necessary.

The Throat Chakra vibrates with a brilliant blue colour, so wearing blues and surrounding yourself with this calming colour will really help. Eating blueberries, currants, blue grapes, blackberries, and dragon fruit will also help.

If you love your crystals as much as I do, Blue Lace Agate is perfect for the Throat Chakra, as is Sodalite, Lapis Lazuli, Aquamarine, and Turquoise. Wearing them as a necklace is the best way to bring them into effect on the body.

Spending some time mindfully looking up at the sky is also a great way to activate this chakra.

Namaste, folks! Thanks for reading…give me a like and a follow if you like what you read, there is more where this came from.

Love and light!

Oracle Card Reading – The Quest

Good evening my lovlies! I’m getting ready for a beautiful night ahead with friends, eating good food and probably drinking a little too much wine, but laughter is good for the soul and there will be LOTS of laughter…

Right now, I am feeling particularly ‘in the flow’, and after a truly magickal day with lots of signs that the Universe is listening, I decided to follow my instinct to offer you all a little Oracle Card reading. So, if this reading resonates with you for any reason, please give me a like and a follow, I will definitely be doing this more often.

I’m working with my Chakra Wisdom Oracle Cards by Tori Hartman, with illustrations by Gretchen Raisch-Baskin, and they are utterly beautiful! They have such a wonderful, positive energy.

Today, the 6th January 2017, your Oracle Card is –

‘The Quest’

This in a blue card, which connects with the Throat Chakra and all forms of communication, that with others, and that with our true selves.

The Quest card asks us what it is we are really seeking?

“When I am somewhere else, will my life have meaning?”

For so many of us, we reach towards a future when our lives will be ‘better’. We tell ourselves that we will be happy if we have this, and when we have that. We don’t realise that our life is happening now, and the happiness we seek is right here within ourselves. Our soul’s path is always in front of us, it never went anywhere. It may be obscured by other things, by the stories we tell ourselves, but it is always right in front of us if we just choose to open our eyes and see it.

Living in the now is not easy when we are conditioned to be unsatisfied by life. Are you looking ahead at a path that is not really yours? Are you waiting for a point in the future to be truly happy? Are you watching for the signposts along your path that validate your decisions and actions?

It’s time to stop. However this card resonates with you, it’s time to breathe and realise you are here and now, you cannot be there and then, and in trying to be, you are missing out on the magick of now and your soul’s true path.

The Universe is offering you guidance all the time, in the form of coincidences, of funny little exchanges, of tiny moments that are entirely yours, like when you glanced up at the clock and saw the time of 11.11, or 22.22. These moments are yours and they are the Universes way of showing you that you are in exactly the right time and place. How will you see these precious moments if you are looking into the future which has not happened yet?

Your soul’s path awaits you. Have courage for the journey and the Universe will answer all your questions…you just have to be here.

 

Namaste, everyone…I hope you enjoyed today’s Oracle Card.
