What is the 5th Chakra?

56851338 - throat chakra

Before looking at the 5th chakra, please be sure to read the What are the Chakras and how do I align them? article to get familiar with what the chakras are.

The fifth chakra is called the Throat chakra. The color of it is blue. This chakra is concerned with communication, truth and one’s personal voice. Each of these will be discussed at a deeper level for further innerstanding.

Communication is not only what we say. What we do not say is also a part of communication. What we say and the way we say it affects our throat chakra. The intent used when saying it matters as well. How we accept communication from others (verbal and non verbal) is another part of communication. How we react to things we do not like as well as how we react to things that we do like or are in agreement with also affect the this chakra. How effective we are at expressing our feelings and thoughts, as well as how effectively we listen to others when they express their thoughts and feelings has a lot to do with the throat chakra.

Another element associated with the throat is truth. How comfortable one is with their truth as well the truth of others, whether it agrees or agrees with their own. How closely one is connected to their truth is very important with this and every chakra.

One’s personal voice is the last main element of the throat chakra. This aspect deals with the communication from within, how one speaks to their self in their own head and how this voice translates to the outside world. To be in tune and to honor your personal voice is a quality all should develop while on this spiritual journey of life.

  • not speaking up when necessary; at work, with friends, with family
  • not knowing one’s voice; not sharing one’s voice

Some ways of determining if your throat chakra is balanced are:

  • communicating to listen, instead of just to respond
  • positive self talk
  • no fear of letting one’s opinion be heard

What can one do to balance their throat chakra?

With the intent of healing and balancing the throat chakra, one can wear the color blue, eat blue foods, as well as other techniques. Some blue foods are blueberries and blue potatoes. One can use chamomile essential oils; on skin, oil burner, spritz, or even in incense form.

One can also do their best to speak up when necessary and keep quiet when necessary. mastering the art of knowing when to speak as well as how to and when not to speak and how not to go about doing it are essential. Approaching every situation from a standpoint of compassion, innerstanding and love.

Healing stones are also known for helping with balancing and healing the throat or 5th chakra. Because its color is blue, most blue stones assist with the throat chakra. Therefore, they each help with communication, nonetheless, they each carry their own special abilities as well. For example, larimar, blue calcite and aqua aura quartz will all help with communication. Furthermore, larimar can also help one with anxiety and road rage while blue calcite can help one create lucid dreams and aqua aura quartz can help one communicate with the angelic realms. My suggestion? Let them choose you and then do your research on them. You will find that the ones that called you, are the exact ones you need.

Heart (4th) Chakra – What is it? What does it do?

heart

Please make sure to read the chakras post before reading this post.

            The fourth (4th) or heart chakra has two colors. They are pink and green. The heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest. This chakra is special because it has a “two for one” quality. You have the lower heart chakra; whose color is green, and the higher heart chakra, whose color is pink.  The Higher Heart Chakra rules unconditional love for all, and the Lower Heart Chakra rules human love. Both also service the lungs.

The heart chakra deals with love. Love on every level. Most people think of the love they receive but not the other aspects of love. Love is a multi-faceted or complex yet simple thing. First, love is something that you give, not expect to receive. Secondly, it must be given to one’s self before one can receive it. If one can receive it better than give it, one’s heart chakra is unbalanced. The same is true for the reverse example. If one can give it better than receive it, the chakra is unbalanced. Both aspects are necessary.

Many of us focus on the love we attract and its faults. Everything we see is a raflection of us. And everything we receive is a direct rasult of what we have sent out to the universe. This is often called the law of attracting or karma. We should learn to love ourselves from the deepest levels to the most mundane, as well as, practice giving and receiving it.

heart 3

We should not settle for inadequate love, lonely love, lusty love, or any love that is not pure. However, we must first learn to give it to ourselves and receive it from ourselves before that can be shared and received from others. Loving the universe is an aid to this process.

It is important to innerstand that this is true for thoughts, emotions and actions. We have to consider our self-talk or the way we think/talk to our selves in our heads and even out loud. How we feel about ourselves- from the way we think, to the way we feel, to the way we act. How we treat ourselves is important as well. How we take care of our body shows us how we care for self. Some examples of this are how we treat our skin, the food we consume, how often we detoxify and so much more.

Once we are at balance with ourselves can we be open to receiving pure love from others. This will also make it hard to accept love that is not genuine or on the same vibe as ours. We will easily see the truth and raspect our selves enough to not settle for anything below our standards. We make the standard by what we allow from ourselves.  So please, please be kind to yourself and to others.

heart 2             Signs of Imbalance are: heart disease and disorders, breathing disorders; such as asthma. Some others are breast cancer, chest pain, high blood pressure, passivity, immune system problems and muscular tension. Some of the most common symptoms of a blocked heart chakra are as follows: feeling joyless and bitter with life, closed emotionally, unable to express love or to receive it from ourselves or others.  We may feel isolated, unfulfilled, and uncertain of our role in this world, because we are cut off from the Wisdom, Love, and Power of our Higher Self.  We may act from a place of fear, and not from love.

            Some rebalancing methods include nature walks, time spent with family or friends, volunteer work, golden foods and drinks such as golden beets and ginger tea. Green foods can also assist; cucumbers and green peppers, for example. Wear gold, pink or green colored clothing. Using gold colored oils such as sandalwood and frankincense essential oils. Other ways to balance this chakra is by hugging one self, developing mantras identifying one’s passion and executing it, and giving your all to your life’s purpose.

A deeper and holistic approach is also Reiki. Reiki can help one heal on the physical, mental and emotional realms. It is believed in Reiki that every dis ease has an emotional root to it and if the emotional root is deciphered or figured out, then one can learn to heal from it and break any consequent problem or problems that it caused.

Healing stones can also be used to aid in chakra healing. Some of the healing crystals that work well with me for the heart chakra are chrysoprase, blue lace agate, larimar, turquoise, rose quartz, pink opal and pink tourmaline.

heart 4

            A healthy chakra is evident or can be seen, but is not limited to when the person is healthy and secure in themselves, takes care of themselves, is selective with their partners, is creative in their thinking and acting.

After any chakra cleansing one can expect changes to occur from the mental, emotional and physical realms. This means changes in one’s actions, feelings and thoughts. The key is to go with the flow, follow the intuition and let the healing innerg take its course.

What Are Healing Stones and How do They Work?

stones

 

Healing stones are considered to be an aid to anyone who wants to heal, work or explore a few or certain parts of their lives. This includes, but is not limited to the chakras, physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, multidimensional and more.

Everything has a vibration or a certain frequency that it pertains to. For example, there are solids and liquids. All solids; cars, tables, etc. are vibrating on the same or similar frequencies. That is why they can all be solid or hard. Liquids; water, juice, etc. are also vibrating on their own frequencies. These two frequencies, of liquid and solid are different to each other. Therefore, they feel different when they are touched.

This is the reason why some songs make you feel like falling in love, some invite you to get up and dance, while others bring you to tears because you felt it so deeply. All of these songs vibrate on different frequencies.

Each of us vibrate on different frequencies. And everything that is vibrating relates to everything around it. This means that you can feel other people’s vibes or vibration or frequency. That is why certain people can get along better than others. They are on similar frequencies. Individuals that are not on similar frequencies will not get along well.

Healing stones relate to us just like people, music, TV, and the Earth does. How we allow them to relate to us as well as how we relate to them is important. Healing stones only need a few things, these are: to be loved, appreciated, cleansed and allowed to work. They work by altering or vibing or vibrating with your frequency.

To give an example of how they work, eye will tell you about my experience with amethyst. Eye had read that amethyst was good for releasing addictions and habits. Eye had picked up the habit of nicotine or cigarettes. It had only been a few months but eye was finding it hard to quit. eye decided to program my amethyst ring to help me work on this issue.

Within two days, every time eye inhaled the smoke from the cigarette eye would get a headache. Eye was reluctant because my brain wanted to make sure that it was the stone actually doing this. It kept happening and it only occurred when eye smoked a cigarette. Eye tried to fight it but the headache was worse than the momentary pleasure of one inhale before they began. Eye haven’t smoked one since.

stones 2

            There are stones for almost anything imaginable. Some examples are cell regeneration, blood strengthener, abundance creator and attractor, self love, anxiety, dreams, protection from bad innerg, talking to your angels, meditation, chakras, depression, letting go, activating higher self and so much more.

Meditating or just simply having these stones in your environment allows them to work with you. They become even more powerful when reiki is given to them. They should be cleansed regularly and cared for.

There are many ways to cleanse your crystals. One easy way is to light an incense and allow the smoke of the incense to cover the stones while you ask them to cleanse themselves. You can substitute the incense for sage or palo santo, both which also repel negative innerg. One can also hold the stone in their palm and turn on a water faucet. Put your palm under the running tefnut and ask the stones to cleanse themselves. Once you feel that they are cleansed, you may dry and use.

Healing stones can also be cleansed by leaving them in the moonlight or under ra for a minimum of 6 hours. This also charges them and makes their innerg even more potent.

To use your healing stones, you can have them around you (in your home, office, car, etc), wear them as jewelry, sleep with them close by or meditate with them. Make sure to always cleanse any stones that you may have purchased, unless you buy them from someone like me, who cleanses, infuses reiki and programs the stone for you while attuning it to you. My healing stones come ready to use.

Sacral or Second Chakra- What it is and what it does

sacral

        The second (2nd) or Sacral Chakra is the second of seven (7) major chakras and it  has a color of red orange and it is associated with birth, sexuality, and creativity. It is located near the naval and towards the lower abdomen.
Some signs of Imbalance can be eating disorders, alcohol, drug abuse, depression, lower back pain, candida and yeast infections, urinary problems, lack of feeling, dulled senses, impotence and frigidity.
Some common signs of imbalance are the inability to have one sexual partner, to not feel good about one’s body, the need to show off the body, feel uncomfortable naked around oneself or others, over sexualizing the self and life.
Some re-balancing Methods include swimming, especially in natural settings such as lakes, oceans or hot springs. Water aerobics, massage, walking in the rain, watching rainstorms. It would help to eat orange colored foods such as carrots, pumpkins and oranges. Orange healing stones such as citrine, orange calcite, sunstone and topaz. Orange colored clothing can also stimulate healing to the chakra, as well as using citrus or orange essential oils.

sacral 2
A deeper and holistic approach is also Reiki. Reiki can help one heal on the mental and emotional realms. It is believed in Reiki that every dis ease has an emotional root to it and if the emotional root is deciphered or figured out, then one can learn to heal from it and break any consequent problem or problems that it caused.
For example, if your sacral chakra is unbalanced because you were never taught about your body, the implications of sexual acts, or how to love and raspect your body and self, then all of your actions will show that. Reiki works with this in that it helps cleanse or clear the innerg stored there while healing and strengthening the chakra.
