Journey to Wholeness IX-The Right to Speak

After reading Sound of Heaven, Symphony of Earth by Ray Hughes, I actively began listening to the “symphony of earth.” Ray clarified for me that all “categories, and forms of light and sound exist within the same spectrum.”

INVISIBLE ENERGY

INVISIBLE ENERGY

The first time God said, ‘Let there be light,’ (Genesis 1:3) He was also proclaiming the beginning of sound.”

The Cervical, Neck or Throat Chakra represents the spoken word, the right to speak.

In the front, it’s located at the base of the neck, at the hollow of the collarbone. Its spiral is rooted in the third cervical vertebra at the base of the skull. This chakra corresponds to the lungs, ears, nose, thyroid, and throat. Think about it:

      ((((((((((((breath+vibration/frequency=sound=communication))))))))))) 

When open, there’s creative expression in speech, writing, and the arts. We’re integrated. We feel peace, express truth, and display loyalty.

My “right to speak” was long coming. Now, I’m adamant about encouraging children in their “right” to say “NO!” Don’t punish your children for saying no, especially girls. Children ARE PEOPLE with emotions…just as we adults! LISTEN to their heart cries when they trust your overseeing of them. If you don’t listen, they learn not to trust.    

If you’ve been silenced, sore throats and creative blocks occur; also headaches, insomnia, co-ordination problems, indecisiveness, depression, thyroid imbalances, infections, and more, plague us. A fog of confusion and doubt follow, like it’s raining on your parade! (I refer to this in the “Ingratitude” chapter of Part Three: Roadblocks of my book, HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU http://booklocker.com/books/6811.html  )

Singing, humming, reading poetry aloud, meaningful conversations, the note “G,” and the intonation of “aye,” as in eye, balance the Throat Chakra.

Humming is a God-given benefit of vocal cord speech. Did you know that the frequency of a cat’s purr facilitates healing in them? Aside from decreasing depression and lowering your blood pressure, there’s also a health benefit to your critters of be stroked, held, and loved!

As Solomon stated, “there’s nothing new under the sun.”

“Healing through frequency is not new! John Wesley, founder of Methodism, experimented with a “machine” to heal people. He used a direct current voltage-regulator (a battery) to heal people. He recorded many occasions where he “electrified people” and claimed to have helped thousands.

He felt healing needed to include prayer. His journals record numerous miracles of God’s healing through prayer. He even prayed for his horse once, and the horse was healed. He had special compassion on those who needed healing and even dispensed medicine from his chapels.”-Kari Browning

I love knowing more about being “electrified.” Maybe receiving shocks from door knobs and carpet is beneficial. It certainly stimulates vocalization from me!

Whatever balancing method you choose, sound is the energy of all things. Sound can heal wounded hearts, release pain, reduce stress, elevate mood, and w-a-y more.

The color blue is associated with the Throat Chakra. As you have learned, to assist in balancing energy: “Wear it. Look at it. Eat it.”

Blue is a unisex color. Holding my turquoise, blue topaz, or aquamarine-adorned hand out in front of my eyes makes me say, “Uh-hum!” See, I’m hummm-ing. (Turquoise and Aquamarine stimulate self-expression, helping to communicate compassionately.)

As for eating it, besides blueberries, bilberries, and blue-scaled fish, there aren’t many naturally occurring blue foods. (Blue M & M’s and blue Skittles don’t count!) In fact, the color blue is an appetite suppressant. Some dietitians even suggest eating on a blue plate, and replacing your refrigerator light with a blue light. For our ancient ancestors, blue food was a warning: poisonous!

Decrees: “I speak my truth. I speak up for me. My voice is heard.”

Directly applied on area of concern, Myrrh #3593 (15 ml at $85.20, $64.75 member price) is an excellent remedy for oral hygiene problems: throat, mouth, and gum irritations.

When diffused, Brain Power #3313 (5 ml at $85.20 or $64.75 member price) helps concentration and focus, clearing the confusion of “brain fog.” When applied to the lneck, throat or under the nose, it is uplifting to the emotions.

Journey to Wholeness VIII–Heart

King David lived and ruled from his heart. “…a man after God’s own heart.” (I Samuel 13:14) I interpret this to say: David’s full-hearted, open-mindedness to God’s heart led him. He listened to his heart’s intuition: its instruction. He kept the “eyes of his heart” (Eph. 1:18) open for understanding.

Howard Martin, co-author of The Heart Math Solution, a clinical research and educational program on emotional physiology and self-regulation, says their research has shown that the heart sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. He says, “The longest journey we take is from our head to our heart.” (18 inches).

The Dorsal, Thoracic or Heart Chakra powers the soul/heart connection of relationships—the unifying energy of love and compassion to overcome alienation and division. This chakra is located between the breasts, in the center of the breastbone. Its location along the spinal column is the first thoracic vertebra between and below the shoulder blades. It relates to the thymus, heart, and circulation.

When the heart center is open, there is self-control and the ability to accept oneself. Love, compassion, and empathy are felt for others, as well as feelings of joy, inner peace, forgiveness, and trust. When blocked or closed, there is a sense of separation from others; intimacy and commitment issues, misunderstandings, anger, distrust, and passivity ensue.

Physical imbalances manifested can be heart, lung, and breathing disorders, breast cancer, high blood pressure, and immune system problems.

Kiss me

Kiss me

This will surprise many of you, but the color green stimulates the heart. (Remember, red is associated with will-power, self-confidence, and courage.) So go GREEN, as Kermit would say! It makes the earth happy, too.

Obviously, an encouraging touch, pat, or hug is heart-centered. Did you know that a twenty-second hug releases the neurotransmitter Oxytocin, nature’s antidepressant. And, holding someone’s hand is, you know, special.

Volunteer at a nursery. Holding and feeding babies is healing for you both!!

If you’ve ever watched “Fantasia,” midway through is an introduction to the sound track. Each instrument note is illustrated with a vibration and a color. I can’t verify that the colors or vibrations illustrated are correct, though there ARE therapeutic benefits from each note for specific organs! Hmmm.

Vibration=Color=Chakra=Organ=Function

Does your body groan or sing?

We’re all familiar with the calming benefits of music therapy. More specifically, the note “F” and the intonation (toning) of “ah,” as in la, balance the heart chakra. Humming is similar. You begin with this vowel sound and finish with your mouth closed. Naturally, the “m-m-m” sound is produced. (Does “Amen” ring a bell?)

In the book, Proof of Heaven, documenting his out-of-body experience from brain death, Dr. Eben Alexander testifies of hearing melodies and an “OM” sound filling, penetrating, and permeating the Universe. This sound is believed to be universal for healing. And, you can hum-m-m-m anywhere!

The Law of Giving and Taking governs the heart chakra. Love takes many forms as we progress through life: parent to child, grown child to lover and/or spouse, and grown child/parent to child again. We give love to another, and they receive the love that’s given. Just as your physical heart receives blood, then oxygenates it and pumps it back out to your body, your emotional heart stays healthy by receiving and giving love.

Affirm: “I love Me. I am love. I forgive. I am forgiveness.”

When shut down to receive or give love, diffusing Young Living’s Essential Oil Joy #3372 (15 ml at $54.93 OR $41.75 member price) promotes self-love and feelings of being loved. It can also be rubbed on the heart and on the heart chakra.

Diffused, applied over the heart or on the wrists, YL’s Acceptance #3303 (5 ml at $52.30 or $39.75 member price) promotes feelings of acceptance for self and others, helping to relieve the urge to push people away.

And, when applied over the heart, Aroma Life #3306 (15 ml at $62.83 or $47.75 member price) has been found to help the cardiovascular, lymphatic, and circulatory systems stay well.  https://www.youngliving.org/4wholeness

Journey to Wholeness-VII “Solar Plexus Chakra (Personal Power)”

During WWII, Eleanor Roosevelt suggested, “Do one scary thing a day.” By “scary,” she didn’t mean playing chicken with an oncoming car. She was suggesting learning something new—a language, a sport, a musical instrument, or practice something you’ve learned but have never utilized. It doesn’t have to be difficult or dangerous, just different. Challenging yourself to overcome fears increases your self-confidence, self-worth, and personal power. I mentioned 3 of my fears in the chapter, “Facing Fears,” of my first book Views From My Chariot…. http://booklocker.com/books/6235.html

The Lumbar or Solar Plexus Chakra represents our personal power and our will. When open, we’re self-confident, in-control of our lives, have self-esteem, and exercise self-control. Since it’s located in the upper abdomen in the stomach area, when it’s closed, digestive problems occur (constipation, ulcers, parasites, colitis), nervousness, feelings of powerlessness, and a victim mentality distort our feelings of worthiness.

The Law of Intention and Desire governs this chakra. You must be conscious and aware of what you’re working toward.

The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken

“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are going.” ~Lao Tzu

Can you give your full attention and map out your direction to an unspecified goal or desire? Make clear your intention (or you may be surprised by their fruit), then nourish its seeds for them to manifest.

Mental exercises and positive affirmations can reverse negative momentum.  Florence Scovel SHINN’s book, Your Word Is Your Wand, is resplendent with affirmations for success.

Read self-help and informative books to stimulate this energy, like my Views From My Chariot  http://booklocker.com/books/6235.html and HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU  http://booklocker.com/books/6811.htm .

Enroll in a class you desire to take. Dance or take out the ol’ hula hoop!

Alright, it’s time for a “You say w-h-a-t?!” Remember Superman’s hands-on-hips-stance and Wonder Woman’s twirl with extended arms, then hands-on-hips? They’re power positions. Not only do they portray strength, but they tell the body to produce testosterone. Girl Scout’s honor!

With shoulders back, position your feet about shoulder width apart (just sitting up straight with fists on hips works if you’re in a wheelchair), place closed fists on your hips, and say: “I am strong. I am confident. I am victorious. I am in control of my life.” No matter the imbalance, this is an empowering affirmation.

The musical note “E” can open this energy center. Wind chimes tuned to E are delightful do-it-yourselfers.

Since yellow is associated with this chakra, stroll in the sunshine, invest in a yellow sweater, socks, or citrine ring. Add bananas, yellow peppers, yellow lentils, yellow squash, corn, and chamomile tea to your diet.

Use yellow essential oils, such as revitalizing and uplifting Lemon, #3578 ($14.80 for 15-ml). Lemon is researched to quell nerves, digestive problems, and gives a lift to emotions. Honk if you love happy! I start each morning with a cleansing couple of drops in my glass of water. https://www.youngliving.org/4wholeness

Journey to Wholeness VI: Sacral Chakra (I Feel)

Oprah talks about life as a class. I’ve recognized its share of tests. Whatever your assignment—SCI, disease, assault, abuse, a loved one’s death, job loss, bankruptcy, divorce, whatever, don’t sweep anger, disappointment, and depression under the rug of denial. The energy it takes to fuel anger and unforgiveness wreaks havoc on our bodies, is emotionally destructive, and opens us up to spiritual confusion. (Did you know that anger affects your liver? http://www.greekmedicine.net/hygiene/Emotions_and_Organs.html )

The Creative or Sacral Chakra connects us to our sensing abilities, issues accepting others and new experiences, our sexuality, vitality, and creativity. ALL about our right to feel!

When this chakra is open: we’re social, compatible, have the ability for intimacy, enjoy a sense of well-being, abundance, and creativity. It’s energy fuels the creative force that enables you as an artist, builder, chef, crafter, organizer, speaker, writer, etc. It empowers you to create a life of love and abundance. Each day, you co-create your life anew. When closed: manifested imbalances may be impotency, frigidity, urinary tract problems, allergies, lower back issues, depression, alcohol and drug abuse, and eating disorders.

Jumper cables to help energy flow from the Sacral Chakra are water aerobics, aromatic baths, massage, or a “Raindrop Technique” by a Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist (CRTS). After one of these, I feel relaxed, yet energized, and have NO back pain for days, although its benefits last for weeks!

The musical note “D” and decrees of “I listen to my gut feelings. I am faith, hope, and love. I receive with ease.” help stimulate sacral energy.

Orange represents the Sacral Chakra. I LOVE orange! I wear it, use it in accent colors, and eat lots of carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash, oranges, and salmon.

Using Young Living’s Orange Essential oil #3602 ($14.14 for 15ml) for aromatic hot baths provides emotional support (emotional system), as well as support to the digestive and immune systems, skin, can be added as a food enhancement, and for water/hot tea purification/flavoring. Yum!

Young Living’s Essential Oil Trauma Life #6350 ($64.47, or $49 member price, for 5ml retail) is an oil blend that D. Gary Young, the founder of Young Living, created at Steven Seagal’s request for his work in hospital trauma centers. It can cleanse and release emotional trauma from accidents, assault, abuse, loved one’s death, etc. It may relieve anger, fatigue, and stresses that compromise the immune system. https://www.youngliving.org/4wholeness

(Due to the fact that one essential oil contains hundreds of biochemicals, and that each person’s body chemistry is different, one essential oil can be used in many situations. And, because of their “strong bioactive constituents,” some oils should not be used on babies, children, or pets.)

How are you progressing on your journey? I’d love to hear your experiences.
