To get the most out of life, you have to engage your will.
It’s like climbing a REALLY BIG mountain.
The art is to climb it with ease and joy.
To go your own pace.
To do it your way.
To feel the ground under your feet.
To take time to dip in the stream.
To take time to enjoy the wild flowers in the height of their summer glory.
To take time to hear what the present moment is whispering in your ear…
Living in Boulder, Colorado, one out of every five clients or so tells me: “My 5th Chakra is blocked.”
“How do you experience that?” I say. “How does it show up in your body?” It includes tension and constriction in the throat, feeling the voice is restricted or squeezed, fear about speaking up in relationships, fear of being big and taking up space.
It is common, that our voices and our throats feel tense and blocked. They are doing their best to protect us, to help us manage our pain. HOLDING ON is the body’s way of keeping us safe.
In reading up on Chakras, Caroline Myss, medical intuitive, describes the 5th Chakra or Throat Chakra, as the center of our willpower.
What exactly is Willpower?:
The faculty by which a person decides on and initiates action. Strong determination that allows you to do something difficult.
Other names for Willpower include…Commitment, Doggedness, Tenacity, Staying power.
As a body-centered therapist, it’s my job to help you to heal your wounds, to move through them. It’s my job to let your body know that it’s safe. And to let your voice know that it’s OK to come out now. It’s my job to help you UN-BLOCK your 5th Chakra, so that you can engage your willpower, so that you can happily climb the mountain of life.
Our throat, where the vocal cords are located, is the channel between our head and our heart. How often do these two agree? No wonder everyone’s 5th Chakra is blocked! This is where it all goes down! Where push comes to shove!
I want to help you open this channel, to make peace between your head and your heart, so your voice is FREE TO MOVE out into the world.
As you open your voice, you build the muscle that is doggedly committed to being and expressing who you truly are. You build the muscle that gives you staying power, so that you can take action and share your gifts with the world.
Tell yourself from me to you, “It’s OK to come out now.” And see what happens next. My body breathes a sigh of relief.
