I have been working with the voice and the throat chakra for many years and I see time and time again within myself and my clients, restriction and blocks around the expression of our voice and speaking our truth.
We’re told what to say, how to say it, what not to say, how to sing, or not to sing at all, we’re worried about upsetting others if we say no, or being too much if we say yes. Yikes!
We have an incredible amount of programming and beliefs formulated around what is okay to express and say and what is not. God forbid we cry in public, or disagree with a loved one. When that energy isn’t expressed out of the body, where do you think it goes?
Our throat chakras are blocked and unexplored. Who's biggest fear is public speaking and singing in front of others? Where do you think that fear comes from?
Are you worried about being seen or heard fully?
Getting to the root of these fears is a freeing and compassionate process. Baby steps.
Are you holding space for yourself?
Are you self- critical or worry about the criticism of others?
Do you think what you have to say is of value?
What is your soul craving to express?
I've had to answer all these questions and work on the beliefs behind my behaviours. Gosh, I would've much rather had written a song saying what I needed to say that actually speak it into the world. I did that for years. It was much easier to agree and suppress my opinion than potentially cause conflict. I was the good girl. Always compliant. I was prone to tonsillitis and throat infections. Putting other people's feelings ahead of mine. I was the BEST listener. People spoke at me and over me because I allowed them to.
Singing alone or in a safe environment is a wonderful way to free yourself and heal your throat chakra. As is speaking up for yourself, saying no to things you don't want to do, and not allowing yourself to be spoken over.
If you'd like guidance in freeing and exploring your speaking and singing voice I'd love to work with you one on one. In these sessions I intuitively combine meditation, visualisation, singing, reiki, sound healing, breathwork and listening to you tell me your story to support you in uncovering your blocks and taking action.
