Activating Body Harmony – Healing through Chakras Series of 7 Blogs
Welcome to part 5 of the 7 part series on Activating Body Harmony, healing through chakras. In this 7 part series we have been exploring how to create harmony between the chakras, so we experience improved levels of health, awareness and consciousness. We achieve this by using yoga postures, and some simple, yet highly effective body movements with an intention to release the blockages from our chakras and infusing them with the colour of light associated with that particular energy centre. The information contained in each energy centre dictates our levels of health, wealth and prosperity.
Each energy centre holds vital information for us to understand and integrate. By releasing challenges in each centre we can live a more awakened life.
Location – Centre of the throat
Colour – Blue
This chakra connects the lower parts of the body and the head and allows the energy to flow through. This is the seat of self-expression of one’s truth and communication. It is from here that you project your ideas and creativity into the world. It serves as a mediator between your emotions and thoughts.
Lack of control over one’s speech, speaking too much or inappropriately, talking excessively, arrogance, dishonesty, timidity, fear, and being manipulative, excessive fear of speaking, speaking lies, lack of connection and filled with doubt.
- Shoulder stand
- Fish pose
- The plough
Repeat each pose thrice, staying with it for 20 seconds at least, focusing your attention on the chakra at all times. Keep your breathing normal and relaxed. Imagine the chakra getting activated, opening up and expanding as you do these yoga postures. Infuse this chakra with the colour blue. Feel the blue colour filling your entire body.
Neck acts as a filter between the flow of abundant energy between mind and body. This also causes it to be subject to tension and stiffness very easily. Lift your head up away from the shoulders and then slowly roll your head in a circular motion – clockwise and anticlockwise.
Lie flat on your back and relax. Slowly lift your head up, leaving your shoulders on the floor, so that you are looking at your toes. Hold this position till you feel the energy move into your neck. This also stimulates the thyroid gland and helps strengthen the neck.
The principle of awakening related to this chakra – Energy is Everything
Your throat chakra is the energy centre that expresses the information it receives from the heart and the mind. A mismatch happens when the sound of the mind and sound of the heart are not in harmony. This leads to misunderstanding, miscommunication, empowering or disempowering conversations, hurtful or kind words and so on. Using the power of the principle Energy is Everything we understand that our thoughts create our reality and therefore raising your energetic vibration becomes imperative, so our throat chakra can express what we feel in the most harmonious way. Read the chapter and put to use the daily practices mentioned in it to clear the stuckness of energy in that chakra and to upgrade its consciousness.
