26. Throat Chakra – Vocal System
The throat chakra serves as the gateway to the soul. The interlocking triangles represent the union of above and below. This is symbolic of speaking from a place of love and wisdom. Words, breath, wind and sound impact the world we live in. Our words hold energy in the form of frequency, intention and tone. It is important to use words wisely for every word creates a vibration that ripples throughout the universe. Sound carries a long distance and can impact places and people we do not even see. The energy of breath or wind is seen as the primordial essence of creation.
Message: Listen to your soul and sense if you are being asked to speak more or less. Are you speaking truthfully, or do you not know your truth? The throat chakra will help you open and heal so you can speak your truth from a place of love, compassion and peaceful power.
“Every spoken word arouses our self-will.” – Johanne Wolfgang von Goethe
