As we move toward the end of the current Mercury Retrograde, the last for 2019, it may be helpful to turn your attention to the multi-faceted purpose and wisdom of your throat chakra, the center for speaking and hearing truth.
The following is an excerpt from the throat chakra chapter of my book Chakras Alive! Exploring & Expanding Your Inner Rainbow.
Throat Chakra Speaks
I am a portal of giving and receiving, a place where you imbibe and expel air, food, information, and concepts; a gateway for listening and self-expression; a triad for expression—you utilize what is available to you on many levels, re-create and/or translate it, and send it forth into the Universe through your self-expression. This is under-utilized by many who believe they must parrot what is given them, rather than perform this series of activities.
I am helpful in sorting out which elements you wish to create with and which hold no value for you other than as contrast to what you do value.
You express on many levels all of the time, and I am the place where you refine what you choose to express deliberately.
I am also the portal for truly hearing what is happening around you, what is being expressed by others, throughout and beyond all dimensions.
I assist you to ask questions, make yourself heard, to perform acts of creativity and self-expression, from the most seemingly mundane to the most seemingly grandiose.
I am willing to work with you on any type of project or activity. None is better or less than any other through my lens. It is simply a matter of how fully you choose to allow yourself to express.
I am invaluable to every area and aspect of your life—every form of relationship, activity, decision-making, and belief.
I value your nature as a portal for extraordinary alchemy, and I support a crucial aspect of this—that of listening, i.e., intake of energies, information, nutrients, ideas, ingredients for re-creation; the process of such re-creating for self-expression; and the sharing, the exhale, the outer expression of this thought, feeling, idea, belief, plan, poem, music, art, recipe, revelation.
I support your ongoing expansion through these three interdependent processes, and hence the expansion of your Universe. This is where Creator and Creation are One; where you are truly present as a microcosm of the ultimate macrocosm, the “as above, so below” in action. It is a mighty realm of beingness, and I thank you for the magnificent opportunity it offers me and all!!!!
