the throat chakra.

i have to admit that i've been avoiding writing about this chakra. i've only known the two very extremes of imbalances + i've come to resent it. it's the most volatile + dangerous of the chakras when used inappropriately. this means, however, that it can also be the most beautiful if we learn to work with it. the throat chakra sits at our throat, swirling with blue energy. we can feel it when we have a lump in our throat, when we have sore necks, when we talk or yell or sing. it's powerful.

the sacral chakra sits three fingers below the navel, a vibrant orange, swirling. some of us may instantly feel uncomfortable focusing on this chakra. we were taught to ignore it, dismiss it. we might have even been told it was evil, dirty, shameful. but this is who we are, this is our identity. this is our life force. we were all created inside of the sacral chakra, inside the womb, inside the waters. the sacral chakra is our emotions, our creativity, our femininity, our sexuality, our fertility, our connection to the tides, to the ebb and flow, to the moon.
