Access the Power of Your Word Through the Fifth Chakra ~
Many people don’t realize how important the chakras are to our physical, mental and emotional health. For example, the Throat Chakra. Let’s start out by using the Reiki Chakra Key to relax and tune into the fifth primary chakra found at the throat. This energy center is about communication and is important to the function of our thyroid / parathyroid glands and affects the respiratory system. It also influences our abilities of expression and creativity. The color vibration of a balanced and healthy throat chakra is blue – as in “true blue.”
The Fifth Chakra Works with Your Agreements to Help You Create Your Physical, Mental and Emotional Health.
When you’re going through significant changes and want to improve your chances for success, it can be very helpful to understand how the power of your word plays into the mix. Unexamined agreements are often the cause of failure to heal, unnecessary stress and inner conflict. That’s because your unconscious mind and nervous system may still be following an old directive that contradicts what’s currently in your best interests. Especially if you’re dealing with boundaries, any kind of illness or recovery process, straightening out your agreements will streamline:
- how you focus your energy to get well, and
- affect your ability to make clear decisions that benefit you now.
To help you sort out how you’re using the power of your word through your agreements, here is a short explanation and mind exercise:
The mind is a recording device and is there to help you navigate physical reality by way of identifying things, communicating, making agreements and by blocking things out that will cause confusion in physical reality. Its primary purpose is to preserve and protect the body.
An agreement can be something simple like deciding that a plate is a plate or that the color red is the color red. More complex agreements are marriage and business contracts or taking religious vows.
Agreements are what organize collective experience and help us to navigate through life. If we didn’t agree what a hammer was used for, it would be difficult to build anything. If there were no agreements around a marriage, then it would be difficult to operate as a collective family unit. These agreements act as a filter so you can focus on relevant information and discard input that is irrelevant.
The mind records our experiences and acts on agreements that we’ve made. Let’s explore different kinds of agreements that might be causing you trouble:
1. Agreements with self. Examples: “I must be nice – I have to put the needs of others before myself”, “I’m not good enough as I am – I’m too tall, too short, too old, etc.”
2. Agreements with other people. Examples: “I have to keep working, no matter what”, “I’m the black sheep of my family”, “I can’t trust anybody,” etc.
3. Agreements with society. Examples: “Being successful = being busy”, “I’m not the right sex, race, or age to ______,” “I can’t, my religion won’t let me”, etc.
4. Agreements with the collective unconscious. i.e. the recorded memory of human kind. “This is the way my ancestors did it, therefore, I must follow in their footsteps.”
Agreements imply certain obligations that shape our beliefs and behavior. Examples: “I said I would vote for him, and so I will – no matter what”, “I have no voice in this situation and so I have no power”, etc.
What Are You Giving Voice To?
As mentioned before, the mind is a recording device and is there to help you navigate physical reality safely. But what if your physical reality goes through a significant trauma or upheaval? What if you are unconsciously accessing agreements that no longer have relevance for you or that are in conflict with one another?
What if the voices in your head aren’t your voice at all?
Conflicting or out of date agreements cause confusion and blockages in your mind. That can create situations where you’re sabotaging yourself and don’t even know it. If you’d like to find out if that’s happening to you, ask yourself:
“Am I listening to messages, assumptions or agreements that are in conflict with what’s best for me?”
If so, can you tell what they are?
Notice how your mind gets confused and doesn’t know what action to take. Then when you do make a decision, whatever agreements that are in conflict with that decision come up and create obstacles. These obstacles could impair your health in serious ways, so it’s well worth it to address them and clear out the landscape of your mind on a regular basis.
A Solution for Healing Inner Conflicts.
Use the Intuitive Learning Circle below to release conflicting or harmful agreements on a neurological level. All you need to do is look at the Circle and consciously imagine any “contracts” that are outdated or causing you harm are burning up into ashes.
Here are some “global” agreements that might be useful for you to release:
“I let go of any agreement that’s blocking my ability to adapt successfully to my current needs.”
“I release all agreements, obligations or vows that sabotage my health or prevent me from taking good care of myself.”
“I release all agreements, beliefs, or obligations that I’ve been forced into against my free will.”
What other agreements can you think of that might be good for you to release?
Establish New Agreements or Renegotiate Old Ones that Will Help You Adapt to the Changes You’re Going Through:
“I listen to my Soul’s guidance.”
“I am fully present and can easily make the required changes.”
“Under my current circumstances, I’m going to need to renegotiate my agreements around ___________________, etc.”
*Notice that you always replace the old agreement with a positive, new one.
Release Conflicts from the Collective Unconscious:
Remember, your mind can also access agreements in the collective unconscious, which is the recorded memory of human kind. Some of those memories or agreements may be causing you harm without you knowing it!
Use this Circle to consciously pull your energy back from people, places and old intentions that no longer serve you.
“I pull my energy back to the here and now. I reclaim my gifts and talents. I use them to fulfill my Soul’s purpose and my highest good.”
Dissolve Harmful Patterns Left Over from Those Old Agreements:
“I dissolve any destructive mental / emotional patterns or templates that sabotage my health, my communications or the power of my word.”
Once the patterns are cleared, give your heart and Soul some relief through closure.
“All holes, leaks or damages to my energy field are sealed and healed.
I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
Re-integrate the Light into Your Throat Chakra ~
Come back now to meditating on the Reiki Chakra Key for your fifth chakra. Relax and softly gaze at the symbol for a few minutes with these positive affirmations:
“My Soul is in charge of how I communicate. I speak truly and clearly.”
“My throat chakra is open and balanced.”
You have recalibrated the energy from your throat center so that you can use the power of your word to create in alignment with your Soul!
Relax and take some time to let it all integrate.
