Expressing yourself through the vishuddha

 Vishuddha, what it is?

The Vishuddha is the sanskirt word for the 5th chakra, also known as the throat chakra. The throat chakra is located in the centre of the throat and represented by the colour blue.
Our throat is the center of our communication and this is where we take in sustenance and express ourselves.
The fifth chakra is the first of the three spiritual chakras, to be open in the fifth chakra is to speak, listen, and express yourself from a higher form of communication.  If you where to learn to meditate on this chakra you will reach the grand state of Trikala Jnani—that is to say, one who is capable of knowing the past, present, and future.

 

The mind becomes free from the influence of our material world. noble and spiritual tendencies of the human mind.

When the energy of the mind reaches the vishuddha chakra a special powers of the mind gets awakened. 

 

Benefits of a balanced and aligned throat chakra

An open and balanced Vishuddha means that you can express yourself very well, verbally, emotionally, and spiritually, as well as have the ability to properly perceive what other people express out. You are able to have very truthful verbal expression, regardless of any fears about possibly not being accepted or be judged by what you want to say.

When this chakra is in balance we are able to tune in and listen to the guidance of our higher self. We can truly find our inner truth, and to communicate and live our truth in daily life. A balanced Vishuddha chakra allows us to easily communicate with others, and to be honest with ourselves.

The throat chakra is connected to self-expression, creativity, writing, listening to words and music, smell and taste. When this chakra is balanced, we speak and listen to people and what they have to say.

 

 

Opening your throat chakra

  • Meditate on specific energies and concepts.  By individually meditating on something specific we can help improve them. Mindfulness in a very condensed state.
  • Try Singing and playing and instrument. Singing is a fantastic method to clear your throat Chakra and you do not need to be a professional musician to play an instrument. You can easily pick up a snare drum at guitarcenter.com and have a few moment’s of mindfulness whilst also learning something new. It is good for your soul to step outside your comfort zone every now and again.
  • Let go of regressive emotions and experience. Regressive experiences can help us want to stay away from positive progresses experiences we might be faced with. Take a few moments out to have mindfulness, forgive and forget and let go. You do not want to get tied to these emotions which will ultimately prevent this chakra from being balanced.
  • Get a massage. If you get a good neck and shoulder massage your throat chakra will surely open up.
  • Soak in water and visualise your throat chakra balanced.  Use a creative visualisation meditation to see your throat chakra and energy running towards it. Emotions and passion are fluid and so is water. They flow, they change, they adapt, they change in spectrum etc
  • Think Blue. Have thoughts about a beautiful and bright blue light. Blue is the colour of the Throat Chakra. Inhale when you see this light and imagine that the light is filling up your throat area with cleansing and healthy light. When you exhale imagine that you are releasing all your stress and tension.
  • Use the power of affirmations. Using the power of affirmations is one of the most effective ways to balance our chakras. Our thoughts create our reality, and by regularly practising positive chakra balancing affirmations, we can do astonishing results in our lives.
  • Cry. It might sound odd, but crying is a form of purification that can unblock your throat chakra.  If you ever feel a ‘lump’ in your throat, it is a sign that your throat chakra could be blocked and you have to cry to help clear it. Next time when you are sad, cry it all out. You will surely feel better.

 

Blocked Vishuddha:

When the Vishuddha is not balanced communication breaks down. We may be unable to effectively let ourselves be heard, and, conversely, we may be unable to listen—to others, and to our own higher self. This chakra is damaged by all that passes through the throat—lying, gossip, alcohol, smoking, drugs, and overeating. Deficiencies in Vishuddha manifest as neck stiffness, shoulder tension, and teeth grinding.

A blockage of the vishuddha can cause you to become quiet, and fearful. The imbalance may also create feelings of anxiety, insecurity, and shyness when it comes to self-expression and speaking to others.

Below is a list of some of the non physical symptoms that might occur if you have a blocked throat chakra.

  • fear of speaking
  • inability to express thoughts
  • shyness
  • inconsistency in speech and actions
  • social anxiety
  • inhibited creativity
  • stubbornness
  • detachment

The unbeaten heart – Anahata

WHAT IS THE ANAHATA?

Located in the centre of the chest and represented by the colour green; the Anahata is the centre of love, warmth, compassion and joy. This only makes sense that it is the heart chakra.

The fourth chakra Anahata generally means “unstuck” or “unhurt.” The name implies that beneath the hurts and grievances of past experiences lies a pure and spiritual place where no hurt exists. Love is one of the highest vibrations in the universe. To actively show others compassion and love, you are raising your own frequency making you a magnet for all things amazing in the universe. Smile and the universe smile’s back. Love and the universe will love you back. You get what you give. This is more literal than anything when talking about your chakras as your chakras control your karma..

A BALANCED HEART CHAKRA

It is pretty easy to know whether you have a blocked heart chakra or not, just go with how you are feeling. Do you feel compassion towards other’s? Do you live consciously knowing that you are whole and connected to all life source?

When your heart chakra is open you are flowing with love and compassion. Others can feel your love and warmth, they feel loved and accepted unconditionally. People feel at peace around you, as there is no judgement coming from you. However, to much of a good thing is good for nothing. If you have an over active heart chakra this could also be dangerous leading to lower frequency emotions, such as extreme jealousy,  co-dependency and harsh judgement on others just to name a few.

It is always best to seek help from a qualified Reiki practitioner when unsure about how balanced your chakras are.

Signs your heart chakra is blocked include feelings of shyness and loneliness. If you are incapable to forgive or have a tendency to lack empathy, then you are leading with your head more often than your heart. In regards to the body, this can include poor circulation and blood pressure extremes. The heart, lungs and upper extremities are all influenced greatly by the Anahata.

The city of jewels – Manipura

Manipura what is it?

Manipura is the sanskirt word for the Solar Plexus which is the third chakra represented by the colour yellow.  Yellow is the symbol of the mind, intellect and wisdom. It is a positive magnetic vibration that acts as a counterbalance for irritable conditions of the nervous system.

In earlier post’s I have written about The root (Survival), The Sacral (Creativity/passion) and after the aspects of understanding survival and feeling passion, come’s growth and nourishment which begins right from our Solar Plexus. Located in our midsection above our navel the solar plexus is the centre of willpower, the core of our personality and our identity. While the (2nd) Sacral chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment, the third chakra is all about the belief of who you are.

The solar plexus chakra is associated with the fire element because fire provides warmth and comfort. The main function of this energy centre is to give real strength to move forward and realise personal desires and intentions in the world. This chakra spans a wide emotional area while it provides warmth and comfort it can also cause fear and terror. However, it plays a fundamental role in the development of personal power and it also feeds your direction in life and the actions you need to take to reach your goals.

The life lesson of the Solar Plexus is to develop your inner power by being honest and at peace with yourself .

A Balanced Solar Plexus

A Strong third chakra reflects the ability to move forward in life with confidence and power. It reflects the ability to make conscious choices to choose and to act. The Solar Plexus chakra attributes to our diet and digestion, meaning if you have an unhealthy diet your bound to have an unbalanced Solar Plexus.

A balanced Solar Plexus is very beneficial for many reason’s some of my favourite are that you will notice progress within your personal and spiritual growth and development, you will feel the need to transform into the best version of yourself, your decision-making skills improve and you will feel more independent.

An unbalanced Solar Plexus on the other hand is not so nice with symptoms such as stubbornness, an overwhelming ego, poor health due to a poor diet, poor judgement, lack of confidence, Denial, fear of rejection, fears about physical appearance. In my opinion a Narcissist has an extremely closed, unbalanced Solar Plexus among other chakras.

On one side, a balanced solar plexus chakra makes it easy to find balance between your personal power and harmonious relationships with others; on the other side, an imbalanced third chakra could undermine your self-esteem and social life.

When your Solar Plexus becomes balanced you will show assertiveness, Exert your will in a way that leads to the expected results somewhat effortlessly and have harmonious relationships with whoever you are around.
A balanced Manipura also awakens your conscious mind into learning how to relate to your whole self mentally, physically and spiritually and makes you more conscious of your personal power and how to use your personal power in a balanced way.

Balancing your Solar Plexus

  • Meditate and take part in mindfulness activities: There are many meditations and mindfulness exercises for the solar plexus chakra, one in fact is listed below.
  • Pranayama: Pranayama is control of Breath. “Prana” is Breath or vital energy in the body. On subtle levels prana represents the pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and “ayama” means control. So Pranayama is “Control of Breath”.   Another easy method to balance your solar plexus is by just breathing! Make each breath mindful focusing on breathing life into your solar plexus and any toxins out of your body.
  • Nutrition: Have a healthy balanced diet and you will have a health balance Solar Plexus Chakra. shutterstock_131743070
  • Wear yellow and eat naturally yellow foods: I have posted it many times when talking about how to balance your chakras because it is one of the most obvious, easiest and quickest way to give your chakra a quick energy boost.
  • Meditate after you eat: Because of the Manipura being attributed to the digestive system it helps clear blockages and balance your third chakra if you do a quick meditation after you eat focusing on your solar plexus.

 

Powerful Solar Plexus affirmations

  • I am positively empowered.
  • I am the architect of my life; I build its foundation and choose its contents.
  • Today, I abandon my old habits and take up new, more positive ones
  • My self-esteem is healthy

  • I starve my ego and feed my soul with wisdom and integrity.
  • I am empowered

The secret to the life you always wanted – Creative visualization

I have changed my life for the better using creative visualization and I believe this is one of the best tool’s to manifest anything you want. A lot of  Athletes, entrepreneurs, actors, doctors and students are all known to regularly use creative visualization… so what is the hype about and how can it benefit us? 

Creative visualization, what is it?

Creative visualization is a mental technique that uses the imagination to make dreams and goals come true. Creative visualization is a powerful technique. If applied correctly, the power of visualization can transform your life. It will help you in attracting to your life anything you wish. Creative visualization uses the power of the mind, and is the power behind every success.

By visualizing vivid scenarios you can carry out, you condition your subconscious mind to act upon it. This is because the subconscious mind is unable to tell the difference between a real experience and something that is just imagined, as scientific research suggests.

Mastering creative visualization gives you control over your thoughts at the subconscious level. While there are several ways to programme the subconscious mind, visualization is the most effective and its results the most rapid.

Realms Of The Mind

 

What the mind believes the mind achieves, What you visualize, you can carry out, What you think, you become, What you concentrate your attention on, you can attract.

How to visualize?

Set yourself a meaningful goal, something that is going to serve you positively, not a goal that is going to feed into low dimensional emotions like the ego.

Once you have a clear idea of your goal set the mood. It’s vital that you are in a relaxed and positive state of mind when you attempt creative visualization.

Once you’re feeling relaxed enter a meditative state, use any regular meditation deepening or count down tool to reach a deep level of mind.  For most people, all that you need is a few minutes spent focusing on slow, steady breathing.

Once your mind feels quiet and still, start creating an image of the thing you want, taking as much time as you need to build up all the details.  Try to make the environment as realistic as possible, and do your best to include all five senses, experience not just the sights but also the sounds, scents and every different sort of  sensation associated with your goal.

When you express gratitude, you feel all the amazing positive feelings associated with what your grateful for. Do the same when you visualize, hold onto all the positive higher frequency feelings associated with the goal that you are visualizing about. Try to hold onto these feelings and repeatedly affirm your belief that you will soon attract the things you yearn for.

Finish with a blessing, ask the universe to let what you have daydreamed manifest in your life.  Then thank the universe for having your back and supporting all your hopes and dreams. Then feel the gratitude in your core, feel all the emotions connected to you living your dreams!

Creative visualization takes dedication and regular practice to manifest results. This is the issue many people struggle with. They visualize for two or three weeks, and start to become skeptics when they have not become rich or got that certain car they have visualized about for the last few weeks.
Stay calm, make sure that you are always in a meditative state when you are about to visualize.  You are commanding yourself to heal or to carry out a goal and this works best when you are calm and relaxed.
Be patient and stick with it, then you will see results.

FEAR – FALSE EXPECTATIONS APPEARING REAL.

In life the number one thing holding us back from living our dreams is fear. Fear of losing, fear of the unknown, fear of change. Anything that could possibly deter us off our path, that society has made us think we need to take in order to be successful.

What a lot of us don’t know is that fear does NOT exist. This is just a word that we have linked lower dimensional emotions and feelings to, because that is how we have been conditioned to think by our parents and our teachers.
How many times have you been told that you need to go to school to get good grades to get a good job? That you HAVE to work hard to get what you want in life.
This is called mental programming and it starts from the first day of school. Throughout  school teachers are always more interested in you “obeying” the rules. In my school if you did not, you would be sent out of class and in doing so you would  miss the lesson. So therefore you are pretty much going to school to learn how to be obedient instead of learning anything that would have any use in your everyday adult life. That is how “school” works instead of focusing on critical thinking,logic, structure and debate, school systems create improper regulations where they will favorite and show more attention and respect to the child who is obedient, turning there back on the disobedient child and stereotyping that child based on there behavior. Essentially creating an assembly line for middle class citizens. Over stressing the responsibility to obey and repeat.

All of these factors have led us to lead a fearful adult life. No matter what anybody say’s I have so many friends and family who are obsessed with being “realistic” in life. I hate that word, what is realism? To go to school, to go to college, to be put in debt before we even start our career and then spend the rest of our lives working to pay back a system that profits of the ignorance of the innocent. A lot of you are working a job you hate, or spending hours studying a subject your not to interested in just because you think that is what you need to do to be “successful.” A lot of you might think you have to put the dreams you have in your life to the back of your mind and have something “realistic” to focus on and put your energy towards.
This is where we all go wrong in life.

   –   Danger is real, Fear is a choice  –

If  you ever encounter a situation where you feel  fearful , remember that the danger your body is telling you is forthcoming may or may not be real. If it is, by all means, act appropriately. If not, don’t let the fear stop you from moving forward because the threat is not real. It’s a product of your thoughts.

In life we are all going to face different dangers and we will all feel fear.  Nothing is impossible, Bob Procter always say’s “what you can hold in your head, you can hold in your hand.” Never hold yourself back in life because you feel fearful and worried that you will not succeed. Fear is a powerful, reactive emotion that also compels people to make decisions quickly – which are less likely to be the best decisions.

It all come’s down to your mindset and how you want to live your life. Do you want to lead a life of hesitation and fear? or do you want to be limitless, confident and courageous?
The choice is your’s and only you can make the decision to better your life, follow your dreams and be the best version of yourself, without letting a fake word get in the way.

Love to wherever you are.

My life in the 4th dimension – Lucid Dreaming.

“A lucid dream is any dream during which the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming. During lucid dreaming, the dreamer may be able to exert some degree of control over the dream characters, narrative, and environment.”

My experiences lucid dreaming is what I can only call profound and astounding .
Before I mastered Lucid dreaming I was having Lucid dreams without being aware I was lucid. Which I think is the case for a lot of people. Whenever I would of had a”bad” dream, I was aware I was in a threatening situation in the dream and in turn would remember “hold on, I am dreaming.” I would use this little trick I done where I would force my eyes open with my fingers in the dream and I would immediately wake up.
However, My experiences today are a lot more vivid and advanced, for the past few years every night I go to sleep I am lucid in my dream.
It is one of the most indescribable things, If I am sleeping and am awoken by my son crying, I will hear it in my dream and say to whoever I am with ” I will be right back.” wake up, see to the baby, go back to sleep and I am at the exact same place in the exact same dream I was in before.

David Icke said “The spirit body exits the physical container in this reality by raising it’s vibration beyond the physical and assumes form in the 4th dimension, where it’s thoughts, emotions, and deep seeded fears assume actual form and shape. This materialization of thought is used against the dreamer in his daze, as he does not realize that his dreams are actual events in ‘the astral’ or 4th dimension.

When speaking of the 4th dimension, I am referring to a non-physical dimension outside of our perception, and outside of ‘spacetime’ as we know it. In quantum physics the 4th dimension is accounted for as the origin of ‘Time’ and it overlays our dimension, which we experience quite obviously as movement, differences, distances, etc. … time is a dimensional phenomena, it is not local to the 3rd dimension, but is instead a 4th dimension. All 3rd dimensional beings have a 4th dimensional self which becomes aware 1/3 of their life in order to familiarize them with their next highest dimension.

In other words, all of us dream, and are sleeping (or should sleep) 1/3 of our life, because our 4th dimensional self must experience itself 1/3 of our lives, in order to prepare us for the Big Transition of full awareness and existence in the 4th dimension…

What is that ‘Big Transition’called for us? Death.”
