The Throat Chakra & Speaking Your Truth

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.

Expressing Your Voice + Unblocking Your Throat Chakra

Finding my voice has been the most difficult and painful work I have done so far. Bit weird for a singer right!? Give me a stage and a mic and I'll happily sing - but to speak up and communicate what I need has felt terrifying and deeply painful. I'm not alone. So many people I speak with experience these feelings too. Why is it so hard for us to express and communicate? Why do we find it so hard to be SEEN and HEARD?

Through the work I've done healing this (and continue to do), and working with others, I have found this blockage to be multi-faceted. For me, it wasn't enough receiving reiki, or humming daily, wearing blue crystals around my neck, visualising myself speaking up in various situations, or going to epic sound baths. All these things were wonderful in healing and unblocking, but if I wasn't speaking my truth and expressing myself in daily life, then I would block right up again. I was treating the symptom and not the cause.

The big shifts came when I looked directly at my fear of expression. Why was I creating the block? Why couldn't I speak up? Why were others feeling more important than mine? Why was my opinion not worth being heard? Why did I not want to rock the boat?

This work is deep. Complex. Painful. But I have experienced the most amazing feeling of freedom and empowerment since tapping in and digging deep.

In my one on one healing sessions we work together to understand your unique picture. We get the energy flowing and moving within your throat chakra, you express what is being held in there and you are guided and supported in day to day life to practice speaking your truth so you feel empowered and worthy.
