Greetings dear yoga students,
Hoping this email finds you well. Spring is here and it is time to embrace our creativity and express our individuality in all we do. The visshudda chakra is the center of communication and self expression. When it is balanced we can speak our truth with the wisdom of the heart and the integrity of the mind. Words are powerful. They have the ability to heal and destroy relationships. The words we say to ourselves can empower us or block our own growth. When we align with our own truth, with the help of divine guidance, we can speak with confidence and have the ability to communicate clearly. When our throat chakra is open and balanced, we also have the ability to hear others in the same way.
A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
Pay attention to your throat and what rises up each time you feel the need to express yourself, do you block it, deny it, stuff it down? To clear the energy in your throat, chant, sing, hum….open the gateway with vibrational energy. As we explore the vishuddha chakra, let us focus on speaking our truth clearly and honestly in the most loving way possible to those in our lives and within our inner dialogue. Take in the energy of the blue sky. Listen to the birds sing as they return after the long winter. Allow their song to fill you with joy, hope and peace…sing your song, speak your truth, dance into the rhythms of the day as creatively as you can expressing the only truth you can express; that which is inside you.
Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. ~Emory Austin
