Listening and speaking are connected to the throat chakra. Located at the center of the neck, the throat chakra is the area of verbal communication.
Healing the throat chakra also heals the heart and solar plexus because of the location of the lungs and diaphragm. Notice how you may admire people who communicate from a place of love and confidence. This is true for writers, singers and public speakers.
- Read aloud.
- Chant mantras.
- Listen to music. Notice the different instruments, rhythms, and/or singers.
- Spend ten minutes in complete silence. No speaking either.
Compare the activities. Journal about your thoughts and feelings associated with the silent one versus the ones with sound. Which was easier to experience? What were the difficulties with the other? Did you notice a difference in your patience or confidence?
