The throat charka is all about finding your inner voice and expressing it authentically. It’s about connecting with your creative expression and channeling it through whatever media, speaks to you. It’s honouring your feelings and emotions and not being afraid to ask for what you need or want. If you feel you are struggling with feeling heard and understood, struggling with expressing yourself in a way that feels best for you then this is a great charka to bring focus to. Finding a comfortable seat in meditation take a moment to rub your hands together to create some heat and then gently place your hands on your throat charka and repeat this mantra out loud. Connect to the vibrations that are released through your throat centre. Connect to the sounds each word makes. Repeat this as often as you’d like. When you are down release your hands to heart centre and bow head to heart taking a moment to honour your inner voice and all the beauty that comes from freedom of expression.
