Support Your Throat Chakra

Today it is more important than ever that we speak up and share our truth with the world. How can we ensure that we are doing this in the right way?  How can we become comfortable speaking our mind in a world that thrives on judgment?

The way we can learn to have confidence in using our voice is by paying attention to how our words make us feel.  If we are speaking from our heart, the words coming through are coming from a source of love, and we will feel confident and good as we say them.  If we are speaking from a place of fear and judgment, a place centered in the ego and disconnected from Source, our words may cause more harm and angst, and we won’t feel good about them. 

This doesn’t mean that we should never get angry or that we should bottle up our angry feelings and never say anything or stand up for ourselves or others.  It means that when we do take a stand we should be careful to choose our words wisely in order to speak clearly and not simply spout off the first angry tirade of insults or play the blame game or talk down to those we deem “less educated” about the subject at hand.  If you find yourself in this situation, stop for a moment, take a deep breath, and do a quick check-in with your heart to see how it feels.  It is okay to change your course of action if needed. 

How Kyanite Can Help

Kyanite is my favorite stone for supporting and opening the throat chakra.  It subtly cleanses any negative energy you may have accumulated and helps connect you to your intuition and compassion.  It promotes confidence in self-expression while diminishing focus on fear and anger.  Kyanite is also a great stone to assist in meditation as it promotes a sense of calm.  Because blue is the color associated with the throat chakra, blue Kyanite is particularly called for when working on this area; however, all colors of Kyanite will be supportive.

Kick it up a notch—combine Kyanite with Rose Quartz to help connect your throat and heart chakras any time you know you may be in a situation where you are put on the spot or when you know a difficult situation may come up where it is imperative that you speak your truth.
