I hope this message finds you well.I want to begin this love note with a short poem:“Growing up, I didn’t talk much; if at all. At some point, I learned to be ‘silent.’ To be ‘agreeable.’ To be ‘nice.’ At my own expense. But now, I got a whole lot to say..”And I mean a WHOLE lot.
As the release of my book, Lavender Heart Tea,
approaches, I find myself feeling an array of emotions throughout any given day. Emotions ranging from relief, to anxiety, to nervousness; just to name a few. But one feeling I feel that outweighs all my other emotions is empowerment. Empowerment that I do not feel I have ever experienced before. I started writing Lavender Heart Tea
June 2021 after my therapist, Danielle, challenged me to write a 15-page essay exploring the painful space my life was in. A challenge that unbeknownst to me at the start, would begin the unblocking and complete activation of my throat chakra.What that Throat Chakra Due? What that Throat Chakra Due?
is an excerpt poem from my book, Lavender Heart Tea
that explores my journey with opening and aligning my throat chakra i.e. speaking my truth. Check out the poem below on my YouTube channel:💌Related love note you might love:What is the Throat Chakra?
Before diving fully into the throat chakra, allow me to explain chakras in general. There are seven main chakras: root
, solar plexus
, third eye
, and crown
; each positioned down the center of the body in their respected areas. Chakras essentially are balls of energy that facilitate the functioning of both our emotional and physical wellbeing; energetic forces that when are open and balanced, cultivate fulfillment for us both internally and externally. I realized the power in studying and understanding each chakra intimately and began exploring different strategies to assist me in healing the emotional trauma residing rent-free within each of my chakras.
When considering the throat chakra, it is the 5th main chakra located within the neck region. The throat chakra governs our ability to speak our truths through authentic communication and actively listen to those communicating with us. It also facilitates our own internal dialogue and well-being expressed through our mental, physical, and spiritual bodies.
