The Divine Feminine has been a huge part of my journey, and I have been called to write a series of blog posts about my experience, as many more people are finding themselves called to this path now. If you have found this post, then this is probably for you. There are no coincidences, so please read on, and take what resonates. If some of this makes sense for you, you may like to check out my events and services, including my free monthly Crystal Wellbeing Meditation. You may also like to bookmark this page. As you read on, my best advice is to feel the energy of the words here – trying to process them logically may fry your brain! Feel them, and you will feel the truth that resonates with you and your soul’s experience.
This month's blog post will cover the wounding of the Throat chakra, which is one that has particularly affected me in this lifetime. And it has been a big issue for me, but I have left it til the third instalment, not because it isn't as important. but because this is something which seems to affect both Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energy. It isn't just a Divine Feminine energy issue, but it does affect the expression of Divine Feminine energy.
The Throat chakra is connected with expression, communication, truth, and authenticity. Issues can be physical or non-physical, but most likely both, depending on how severe the wounding is. I certainly had both! Indeed, the more severe the wounding, the more likely it is that you need to use that chakra to full effect, so healing is imperative. So, let's start with the physical issues, as these are often the easiest to recognise.
Throat Chakra Issues
Physical issues with the Throat chakra can include illness and disease connected to not just the physical throat, but also to ears and nose as well, as they are all connected. This could be frequent colds, repeated throat/ear infections, needing to have tonsils or adenoids removed, losing your voice frequently, having a stiff neck, or even jaw or spinal issues... and all of this can appear to happen without any real reason. It could also include having a stammer or being mute, or even hearing problems. You may be born with such issues, as almost always these issues stem from past life issues. How many of these have been recurring or constant issues for you? I had almost all of these, which I have successfully healed or at least been able to manage them, with energy healing and nutrition.
Now for the not-so-physical symptoms of Throat chakra wounding, and all relate to different aspects of expression. Expression can be verbal, but it can also affect life choices, and being unable to be authentic in the way we live our lives. We may misinterpret other people's words and intentions, or we may feel misunderstood by others. We may struggle to find the right words, especially when under pressure or feeling emotional. We may feel ignored, unheard, or overlooked, and have difficulty in setting boundaries with others. It can also manifest as being a people-pleaser or a yes-person, being unable to say NO, even when what is asked of us is detrimental to our own well-being. These issues can present with extremes too - for example we may feel like we are never heard, and so we may be too loud, or speak too much, but during the times when it matters, we may struggle to speak up for ourselves, like during a confrontation. Are any of these ringing any bells for you? Again, many of these applied to me, and I still have to be conscious of these tendencies now, so as not to fall into the traps, but it is possible to overcome them.
Other Issues That Can Arise
From the work that I have done on myself, and on others, I have noticed that these issues are all amplified when it comes to significant relationships - so we may be fine to express ourselves with friends or in work, but when it comes to family or a partner, the issues may feel more severe. It is normal to find this to be the case when we are already in the process of healing Throat chakra issues. So, if you feel like you have made some progress, only to find that the issue rears its head again, it is not the problem returning, just that there is another layer of healing needed. It really is like an onion. Notice and feel proud of the healing you have already done, and just keep going :-)
Throat chakra wounding can also create unhealthy relationship patterns, especially when combined with the chakra wounding covered in the first two blog posts in the series - intuition (Third Eye) and emotions (Sacral). Blocks and wounds in these three area create one big systemic block, which can lead to abusive relationship cycles, where control is an issue. Either by feeling controlled or manipulated by others, or needing to control or manipulate circumstances to feel safe or to avoid feeling fearful. When we are unable to express (Throat) our emotions (Sacral), and we can not access or trust our intuition (Third Eye), then we are susceptible to becoming trapped in abusive situations. Working on our own self-healing allows us to trust ourselves, listen to our feelings, and say exactly what we need. This is particularly true when it comes to boundaries, and stating the kind of behaviour we expect, or will not accept. Healing Throat chakra wounds can have far-reaching effects, which will help us to get more joy out of life and our relationships.
And lastly, for me, the most important one: Throat chakra wounds block us from expressing our Divinity, and everything connected to that. This includes our ability to manifest, to share our intuitive insights, and our ability to carry out our Life Mission and Soul Purpose. We came here to do all of these things, that is our natural state, and when we are unable to do these things, and be this way, it can lead to a sort of spiritual depression. Very often, the most spiritually gifted souls have Throat chakra wounds that they must work through, before being able to go about their spiritual work. Early in my spiritual journey, I received the following words from a gifted medium - he told me "People need to hear what you have to say". I had never believed that could be the case before that moment, having felt silenced all my life. But I could feel the energy of his words, and knew it then to be true. If you have a significant Throat chakra wound, this is no doubt also true for you. Whether you suppressed your own Throat chakra, or someone else did it for you, now is the time to heal it, because the world needs what you have to offer, right now.
