Self Expression is Blue

Giving a presentation to a group - whether you know them or not - can be one of life's highly stressful events.  But here's an easy way to reduce your anxiety and communicate with confidence:

The fifth  in the line of seven Chakras, the throat energy center rules communication, self expression plus the thyroid gland, neck, and esophagus.  It's the center of creative energy in the yoga tradition of the vishuddha.  And you can positively influence it by wearing an azure blue stone or crystal necklace.  Similarly colored scarves around your neck also energize your throat chakra and assist with articulate communication.  A blue shirt or blouse will also support your throat Chakra.

With open and active lower Chakras, and energy flowing through the fifth Chakra,  you'll speak with rich tones, and enjoy expressing yourself.  

A weak or unbalanced throat Chakra shows up with hoarseness, 'frogs' in the throat and holding back of creative ideas. According to Christine Northrup, M.D., blocked energy in this Chakra is demonstrated with struggles between listening and speaking, pushing forward vs. waiting, and being willfull vs. compliant.

Assessing the throat Chakra with a pendulum (described in an earlier blog post), I noticed many of my female clients' throat energy centers were closed or unbalanced.  Many as it turned out, also had thyroid issues.  When I asked if they felt like they could speak their mind, or stand up for themselves, many confirmed they did not feel comfortable doing so.

If you're concerned about an upcoming presentation, feel awkward speaking in groups, or don't feel you can speak up or effectively, consider rebalancing your throat Chakra.

1.  Take both hands, palm over the top of the other, and place them on your throat.
2.  Imagine crystal blue light radiating into your throat in a clockwise position.

Practice this simple technique at least three times a day while saying the words, (outloud): "I enjoy expressing who I am".
