Find Your Voice and Speak Your Truth
The gifts of your Throat Chakra, Vishuddha, are accepting your originality, expressing your authentic voice and speaking your truth. Balancing this chakra allows you to express who you are and what you desire, but also allows you to listen deeply to others.
What are Chakras?
Chakras are energy centers within the body. The word chakra means “wheel” or “disk.” Think of the chakras as spinning vortices of energy that correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of your energetic body that affect your emotional and physical well-being.
Opening your chakras and allowing cosmic energies to flow through your body will ultimately refresh your spirit and empower your life.
There are seven main chakras that align along the spine; starting at the base of the spine and moving up to the crown of the head. When adequate energy flows to these chakras, that energy fills the area with the vital life force each chakra needs to perform its unique specialty.
Each of the seven chakras is governed by spiritual laws, principles of consciousness that we can use to cultivate greater harmony, happiness, and wellbeing in our lives and in the world.
You are constantly changing, growing, evolving and adapting to outside influences; as such, lifestyle choices, life experiences, circumstances and outside influences may hinder the flow of energy to these energy centers. When chakras become blocked, it destructs the flow of energy in our bodies and causes emotional and physical distress.
Disease is often an accumulation of dammed-up energy. When we learn how energy moves through the chakras, we can begin to allow it to flow freely through our bodies, creating greater health.

Fortunately, there are a variety of practices, including affirmations, that can help keep these channels open and allow energy to flow freely.
Affirmations are powerful statements used to balance and harmonize these energy centers. Through consistency and repetition, affirmations direct healing energy to restore balance to specific areas of your body and life.

The throat chakra, located at the base of the throat, acts as the body's communication hub.
It governs self-expression, communication, the ability to speak one's truth and sing praises—for yourself and others. This chakra is associated with speaking up and expressing yourself, but also with hearing and being heard.
The Sanskrit word for the throat chakra is Visshudi which translates to “purification", "especially pure".
Vishuddha chakra bridges the heart and the mind. When this space is clear, the wisdom of both is integrated and profound spiritual truths flow freely.
The fifth chakra plays an essential role in the chakra system. A balanced throat chakra helps with internal communication, verbal communication, and creative ideas.
Imbalances in the Throat Chakra can manifest as; fear of speaking, feelings of depression, anxiety, or low self-esteem and raspy or sore throat, . These may be worsened by being unable to express feelings.

Using Theta Thoughts to Open Your Throat Chakra
As you listen to this meditation visualize a vibrant turquoise mist at your throat center. As you saturate your throat chakra in this vibrant turquoise mist feel your throat relaxing, softening, balancing and aligning.
Theta Thoughts allows you to transcend negative thoughts and replace them with new positive thoughts through relaxation and repetition; theta binaural beats + positive affirmation loop. When the body and mind are relaxed you are more receptive to receiving the newly desired thoughts. Through this process, new neural pathways and positive thought patterns are created.
While relaxing comfortably in your bed you are gently guided into deep states of relaxation. As you soften into complete stillness all of your day-to-day thoughts and worries begin to drift away and positive thoughts begin to fill your mind space. As the positive affirmations cycle through your mind they create a positive thought pattern.
Over time your negative and limiting thoughts about money begin to dissolve and the positive affirmations aligned with abundance become your new dominant thoughts.
As your internal dialogue begins to transform both your internal and external worlds will shift and you will come into alignment with your desires.
