A rather grey and cool morning over London today. Hopefully this doesn’t mean we have reached the time of year when summer bedspreads are replaced by warmer, winter duvets. Fingers crossed for a few more weeks of sunshine.
We are getting to the end of this series of meditations to balance the Chakras. Only three chakras left and then I think it’s time to move on to experiment with other types of meditation.
Today, we’ll use Tibetan singing bowls to balance the Throat Chakra, our communication centre. This Chakra is located on our throat and it’s associated with self-expression and the search for truth. It’s represented by the colour blue and a lotus flower with 16 petals.
On a physical level the Throat chakra is associated with the thyroid gland, the upper lungs and the respiratory system.
When this chakra is balanced you are able to listen and communicate easily; you can express your feelings, needs and truth. When it is unbalanced you may feel as if no one cares about what you have to say, or you may close completely to the views or needs of others around you, or even find it impossible to express your feelings altogether.
On a physical level, when this chakra is unbalanced you can experience from mild tingling on the throat, coughing fits and swelling, all through to asthma, laryngitis and hearing problems.
So, as you see, it is quite important to keep it well balanced 🙂
Here is a 10 minute meditation, that uses the G note to centre our Throat Chakra :
