The Throat Chakra
According to the Old Testament, and this is not an exact quote, God spoke . . . and all that we know – the universe, galaxies, stars, planets, . . . everything came into existence. God is said to have said, “Let there be LIGHT” or it’s equivalent in whatever language, if there even was such a thing as language.
According to this story, Sound came before Light. What is Sound? It is a type of vibration. According to the most recent theoretical physics, vibration is the most subtle energy pattern that we can discern. Hmmm.
Out of Sound came what? Divine Light. And what is Divine Light?
Divine Light is an aspect of Divine Love.
From the Sound expression of Divine Light and Divine Love, specific patterns and forms took shape. Thus was manifested All That Is.

The old children’s rhyme, “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me” is a false statement. The power of the words we think and speak is the power of MANIFESTATION.
When we shout angry words at someone, that is energy we are putting out of our body. Whoever and whatever is present is being affected by that energy — not just the emotional part, but the words, too. People who are more psychically aware can actually feel the energy of a space when they walk into it. If anger has been expressed there, they feel the anger. If sadness and grief have filled the space, they can feel the sadness and grief.
I once visited a Tibetan temple in upstate Vermont. I was attending a class inside the room where people came to meditate and pray. We began the class by becoming silent, becoming grounded, and just sitting quietly. As I moved into that quiet inner space, I heard a mantra being chanted, not by the people in the room, but coming out of the walls. It was not the mantra I use to meditate, so I knew it wasn’t coming from within me. “Om mani padme hum” is the chant I heard resonating from everything in that room.
The words you choose to speak and the words you allow to flow out of your mouth without giving them a second thought all create your reality. Every sound you utter is a vibrational pattern. We know that certain trained opera singers can literally break a glass with their voice. That is only a very tiny example of the power of sound to vibrationally disorganize and destroy. But sound also has the power to create.
SPEAK ONLY WORDS OF LOVE
I used to pray that I would speak only words of love.
What does this prayer mean? What would I do with the other feelings I was experiencing? How would I transform my speech so that only Love poured forth – naturally, automatically, and in every moment?
Truthfully, I am still working on it. But here is what I have come to understand.
If you want to speak only words of Love, your Heart Centers and your Throat Centers must be open, cleared of all lower vibrational patterns, spinning correctly, balanced, integrated, and aligned within themselves. Then and only then can be they fully in alignment with each other. Then, when the flow of energy between your heart and your throat centers is fully aligned, you can choose to speak only words of Love.
Imagine – a world where only LOVE is spoken.
Can you imagine what your life and the lives of everyone else would be like if you and everyone else spoke lovingly?
What would it feel like?
How would it affect the choices you make?
How would it affect your relationships?
How would it change your perceptions of reality?
If you are already working on Living From Your Heart, then you are already doing the clearing work that will strengthen and align your Heart Center.
Now, focus on your Throat Center. Identify what needs to be cleared by breathing into your Throat Center and noticing blockages of any kind. You probably have some, as most people do. Many of us have been living a life where we speak less than our own personal Truth, and that, in itself, creates blockages. When we hold back expressing our energy, our energy becomes jammed up.
So if you want to being speaking Only Words of Love, you will have to also begin to speak words of Truth – YOUR Truth. That doesn’t mean attacking or blaming others. It does mean being able to say what is true for you WITHOUT accusing others.
Another way to work on your throat chakra is to gently bring DIVINE LOVE from your Heart Center into your Throat Center. Allow the Love to surround anything and everything that is creating a blockage for the purpose of dissolving it.
Clearing the Throat Chakra – or any chakra – is not a five minute process. If you are interested in clearing out your chakra system, and healing and aligning it, find a healer that knows how to support this process and can teach you how to work with it on your own as well.
