“As soon as you honour the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.” Eckhart Tolle
During this article you will discover how to give yourself permission to evolve at your own pace despite external pressures and relax in the knowing that everything unfolds at the right time if we are persistent.
This process helps to rebalance your throat chakra so that you can develop more self-control and patience.
Remember the quote by Sharon Salzberg? She says “Patience doesn’t mean making a pact with the devil of denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that’s unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.”
Take Inspired Action & Then Go SURF, PLAY & PAINT
Do you want to regain control in your life and refocus on what is important? Then it is essential that you become the master of your own schedule and take time out to observe and reflect your surroundings without judgement and relax into the flow of life again. Consistently engaging in immersive attention, breathing in deeply and allowing situations to evolve fluidly is the key to greater self-control and develops your manifestation skills. Remember we must first take inspired action but then go surf, play and paint.
Observe the behaviour of your beloved cat. She will look for things that make her feel good during the day. A few hours sprawled out in the sun, a quick burst of energy as she runs around the home chasing a moth then some water, a tickle and some cuddles before she is rewarded for her efforts of just being with a delicious tin of tuna.
Up until recently, I had always been a very impatient person. Being brought up in a family that believed the propaganda of ‘buy now pay later’ model, if I wanted something I would get it and then spend the next ten years trying to pay it off. There is lots of peer pressure to keep up with the Jones’ in an age where we are being brain washed by social media advertising daily.
Losing yourself in inspired action when feeling the urge then turning the other cheek and indulging in play will keep you feeling happy in the moment and help with the manifestation process. Today I feel a lot more relaxed during the day and am still amazed by the amount I can achieve.
Three ways to cultivate patience
If you are not a naturally patient person then here are some strategies suggested by emerging patience research.
Reevaluate the circumstances.
Feeling impatient is not just an automatic emotional response; it actually involves conscious thoughts and beliefs. If you have been held up by someone running late, instead of getting frustrated you ca see that extra time as an opportunity to get something else done. Perhaps something just for you like writing in your journal or calling a friend. Patience is linked to self-control so consciously trying to regulate our emotions can help us hone our self-control skills.
Just taking a moment to inhale a few deep breaths and noticing your dominant feelings can help you respond with more patience.
If we are genuinely thankful for what we have at this moment in time, we are not desperate for more things or better life situations immediately.
Practicing patience in everyday situations will not only dramatically improve your life in the present, but might also help you to create a much more rewarding and abundant future.
Activate The Throat Chakra To Improve Self-Control
Blue is the colour of the Throat Chakra.
This calming colour balances this energy centre which will enable you to sharpen up your clarity of communication and strengthen your will. The throat connects the heart to the mind and enables you to speak your heart-felt truth and express it verbally with conviction and free of critical judgement.
Blue energy improves the function of your 5th energy centre which develops self-control and activates patience.
The colour blue also helps you to overcome fear of speaking, stuttering, gossiping and lying and promotes profound healing and creative expression.
Works on the throat, neck, jaw, menstrual cycle, arms, digestive tract, vocal chords, ears, nose, mouth, thyroid and parathyroid.
Signs of a blocked throat chakra can include:
Sluggishness and lethargy, excessive talking, inability to listen, fear of speaking, poor rhythm and aphasia.
There are several ways to stimulate and rebalance this energy centre.
The easiest way to notice if your throat chakra is out of balance is when you are unable to speak your truth when you need it the most, or you resist the expression of your needs and desires. In might be that you are yearning to realise your dreams of fulfilling your soul purpose, but life seems to be preventing you from achieving your desires.
5 Top Tips To Rebalance The Throat Chakra
1. Use Vibrational Remedies:
Australian bush flowers such as the Old Man Banksia, Bush Fuschia, Boronia, Bauhinia and Black-eyed Susan will work on rebalancing the throat chakra and will ultimately help you to remember the practise of self-control and patience.
Organic essential oils such as Peppermint, Spearmint, Cardamom, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree are also perfect as they can either be diffused in an oil burner or vaporiser, sprayed into the aura in the form of a misting spray or gently rubbed onto certain trigger points on the skin.
2. Use Crystals:
Listed below are a selection of healing stones that are commonly used to open, balance and heal the throat chakra. These can be worn as jewellery or consumed as a gem elixir.
- Blue Lace Agate – Pale Blue – Enhances communication, healing and alignment.
- Angelite – Pale Blue – Aids communication, patience and angelic connection.
- Lapis Lazuli – Rich Blue with gold speckles – This “stone of truth” restores your ability to communicate effectively.
- Turquoise – Turquoise – Dispels negativity and restores confidence to speak and express one’s thoughts effectively.
- Aquamarine – Light Green/Blue – Offers courage and promotes tolerance and patience while dispelling fear.
3. Sing – Use Sound Frequencies:
Many sounds seem to resonate the chakras. However, among the most popular are the use of vowels and the use of mantras. This use of vowels seem to be extremely effective in balancing the chakras. The vowel sound for throat activation is Eye.
The second method of resonating the chakras is to use the Bija Mantras, the Sanskrit letters from the Vedic traditions, which by themselves are said to balance and align the chakras. The Bija Mantra is Ham.
Another aspect of sonic chakra resonance has to do with the actual frequency or keynote of each chakra. There a multitudinous different keynotes and scales with regard to this.
Keynote G is aligned with this energy centre and has a frequency of 384 Hz.
4. Express your emotions in a journal.
If you find it difficult expressing your emotions, try keeping a journal of how you are feeling.
It doesn’t really matter how just as long as you to let them out. Honesty with every word is essential so don’t hold anything back. Check out my top ten tips on how daily journaling can improve your mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
5. Surround yourself with the colour blue
Another very simple method to rebalance the throat chakra is to consume blue foods such as blueberries, swim in the ocean or wear blue clothes. This is especially beneficial if you only have one, four or five 1’s in your birth-chart as this usually indicates a difficulty with verbal self-expression. It can also be extremely helpful in slowing you down if you have the ‘Arrow of Activity’ in your birth-chart which is the presence of the 7, 8 and 9 in your date of birth.
