Inspired by the throat chakra in my Chakra/Totem series. The song of life is being brought forth by the breath. Daily we are creating who we are and what we experience by what we say, what we don't say, what we hear, what we ignore. Our surroundings are filled with the magical input that continues to forge us so being mindful of what we allow, WHO we allow into our lives is so important. Using our voice to carry our strength of who we know ourselves to be is the key to keeping our life flowing in the way that is most healthy for us. Remember to speak up for your spirit. To sing the joy of life and to let the complaints fade away. Continue to pay attention to the wand that is always bringing life...to life. We must trust in ourselves to allow our truth to be heard.
In the spirit animal kingdom, the wolf symbolizes:
•Sharp intelligence, deep connection with instincts
•Appetite for freedom
•Expression of strong instincts
•Feeling threatened, lack of trust in someone or in yourself
The throat chakra is the voice of the body. It is a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakra to be expressed. If it is out of balance or blocked it can affect the health of the other chakras.
When it is in balance we can express what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, we can bring our personal truth out into the world.
When the throat chakra is in balance we have a easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the sacral chakra through the solar plexus can continue its path enabling free expression of the values and needs expressed within the energy..
When the throat chakra is out of balance the physical symptoms may include sore throats, tight jaws, stiff neck, and headaches. When it is out of balance spiritually you might find yourself habitually lying, feeling fear and doubt about the intentions of others, or find yourself stammering or at a loss for words. You will likely have feelings of being isolated and misunderstood. You may well have symptoms of other chakras being out of balance. This is caused by the throat chakra blocking the energy flow from the other centers.
Use the power in your voice wisely and the health of your body will be increased. Use it poorly and all will fall out of alignment.
