When examining the particulars connected to the fifth chakra, the throat, zone of communication and expression, imbalances or diseases that manifest can produce a myriad of symptoms: Sore throat, thyroid imbalance TMJ (Temporomandibular joint disorder of the jaw bones), weak voice, hearing loss, repeat colds, shyness, feeling dis-empowered, overly emotional, uncommunicative, egoic you speak…but others look as though you are an alien!
Some suggestions to help clear away the energetic traffic jam may include: Singing, Humming Chanting Screaming-Yes. A good scream can do wonders in terms of releasement. Trust me, I’ve done it a few times to shed what I needed to release,
For those who are familiar with The Law of Attraction, we can also apply this concept to imbalances in the throat chakra; what we send out is returned to us. The Universe is quite explicit in guiding us to live our truth. I recently read a quote that states “Living your truth is as much about knowing who you are as what you stand for”.
From a Reiki practitioner’s perspective, clients who seek out Reiki as a means of restoring balance to their physical vessel, typically express feelings of overwhelment, frustration or anger. In assessing and observing, we find it may be a reflection of feeling as though they aren’t being heard. Or, perhaps they are not speaking their truth.
While the practitioner focuses on all seven chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown), extra attention may be placed on the throat chakra to allow the congested energy to come towards the surface and melt or burn away, further completing the client’s healing process.
Channeling Universal Love & Healing Energy can assist in releasing congestion in our communication zone. A byproduct of this healing can surface as a cough, scratchy throat, excess phlegm, metallic or “funky” taste in the mouth. While they may seem annoying to the client, I reinforce that it’s a positive step in their healing journey. This allows life force energy to move in a more natural rhythm. It also allows the client to speak clearly, concisely and with defined intention.
I once worked with a client was an airline attendant. She was cute as a button. During our session, I observed congestion to her throat chakra. Through the discussion process, she shared that one of her co-workers had been making sarcastic comments towards her. Frustrated, she would stay silent and not engage in a banter of words. When she returned for a follow up session a few weeks later, I asked how things were going with this person. Her eyes widened and she explained that when she returned to work, the co worker made yet another sarcastic comment. My client firmly told her that her comments were unwarranted and basically put her in her place! From that moment forward, there was no more comments from the peanut gallery!
Now, while each case is unique, Reiki clearly was instrumental in this situation. My client was able to release the frustration, anger and self critical feelings regarding herself and her coworker in a healthy, positive way. Reiki allowed her to feel confident in communicating her thoughts and intentions.
Furthermore, we are seeing more people opening up to their Spiriutal gifts. In the early stages, uncertainty of how to step into their Light can cause im-balances to their throat chakra. Again, the bond between client and Reiki practitioner can provide loving assistance in working through these feelings.
At the end of the day, Spirit reminds us how much our truth shapes our experiences. A valuable lesson for everyone.
And So It Is…
