2nd Chakra – Vishuddha

My sister once told me that I do the same thing over and over again regardless of the consequences. Am I really listening and present for my life? What are my reasons for my choices? Am I speaking my truth and do I know my truth?

Chakras are not physical but they are the energy centers in the body. When they are unbalanced. blockage or malfunction of the chakras can lead to physical, psychological and emotional disorders.

Every since I started my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, I have worked on my throat chakra. I was drawn to this chakra again and again. This chakra affects your will power, or lack of it and the life choices you make. Your attitude, beliefs, act of will. It is your mission control center.

Speaking your truth and the art of “listening.” According to the Hindu tradition, Vishuddha is responsible for communication, self-expression, and the ability to speak your personal truth.

Without knowing yourself, it is not possible to know let alone speak your truth. Without knowing yourself, how do we really listen? Staying present for a conversation involves not thinking about the best reply. Knowing yourself.

Asana practice, relaxation and meditation. Going inside to reconnect with our inner divinity takes time. Journaling enables us to sort out our thoughts, understand and release our past choices, stick to our practice-Tapas-, and be present for our life.

Hi and welcome to My Yogic Path! I became a Yoga Teacher recently in my 60s! I am a woman, mother, wife, sister, cousin, in-law, K-8 retired teacher, and more. As I age, I felt great anxiety letting go of things that do not serve me today, what I have not yet accomplished, my purpose, questioning my beliefs, anticipating a fear of death, and much more. I found myself progressing from a full and busy life to a less full and sedentary life wherein there is much time for reflection. Enjoying Yoga at the gym starting in my 40s, my daughter and son-in-law becoming Yoga Teachers, I decided I wanted the peace I gained being with these fellow Yogis. I also felt drawn to REIKI healing and pursued this path becoming a Reiki practitioner. Life has led me down and up many paths. This Yogic Path gives me insight, strength, and peace when I need it most. Enjoy this blog with me as I continue.
