Seek Only Truth
As we explore this chakra we are challenged to ‘retrieve our energy’ from false truths. Forcing us to distinguish thoughts and actions that are motivated by strength and those that are motivated by fear.
This is personally my favorite 😊 I have always been enamored with wisdom and intuitive sight. Although it is like this Patrick meme, the energy that is so vibrant and wonderful in my third eye tries to flow through my throat chakra and it comes out a scattered mess at first ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
We are all a unique mixture of what we know and what we believe to be true; this is created by the coming together of facts, fears, personal experiences, and memories. This is the fun part where you get to dissect that mixture and identify the recipe (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
As the brain is the physical commander, the mind is where thoughts become actions. As we indulge in this journey, we gain wisdom through both life experiences and acquiring the perpetual ability of detachment. As humans we crave stability but unfortunately nothing in this world is immune to change. The lesson is then to not search for unwavering stability in outside sources, building your house on sand. But to find stability within yourself, building your house on rock. Instead of shifting with time and succumbing to exposure from the elements we cast our anchor internally.
This allows you to ride the current of time and experience without loosing your balance. Think of it as the universe experiencing itself through you.
Trying to make things stay the same is as pointless as spitting into the wind. But that isn’t meant to discourage at all!
On the contrary, it means learning the direction and strength of the wind, then spitting (☞ﾟヮﾟ)☞ ☜(ﾟヮﾟ☜)
In other words our task is to put your best foot forward in every situation and keep in mind we influence but do not control what tomorrow brings. :)
I know we talk about fear being bad a lot when working on our internal strength, but it wouldn’t exist if it was all bad or all good. Its purpose is to alert us to a loss of power in our bodies, physical or mental. Healing requires the unity of mind and heart, honoring our needs AND our feelings. I know a lot of us would love to be Vulcan, but we aren’t LOL. Feelings are apart of us and just as important as thoughts.
One goal of this chakra is become detached but not cold or the absence of care, but rather to posture yourself so that external influences have no authority over your sense of self. The other goal is to become conscious by opening yourself to internal evaluation. Now the real trick is maintaining this state through obstacles. It requires to move past the idea that situations are either win or lose. Death or illness isn’t failure, it’s a natural part of the cycle we call life. and cue circle of life playing in my head now.....
The answer to our struggles and pain that surfaces with this chakra is simple, but probably the hardest thing you will ever do. Ever.
Let it Go.
.... and now cue frozen... ( ﾟヮﾟ)
Releasing what you think reality should be and start observing what is.
So what is the end game goal of all this?
It’s not to suddenly become immortal or immune to change. It’s not to rule and command the physical to your will.
It is the ability to ride change without fear and looking to what we can learn from it. It is to become a master of spirit. This journey is a lifelong task and tends to be more glamorous in theory than in practice, but in my opinion it’s the most rewarding. ಠ‿↼
I wanted to share some of the exercises that Dr Myss shares to help guide working with this chakra on pages 255 and 256.

Choice and consequence
In exploring the ideas in the chakra you will face the many emotional and mental struggles involved with the nature of choice.
I will have to admit off the bat that my traumas effects tend to accumulate and manifest themselves here;
in other words its my Achilles heal. ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ﾉ︵ ┻━┻
Here resides the fear of chaos, the unknown, and also the perception that we can control it. The previous chakras have given a sense of self-empowerment. Now we balance out by flipping the idea on its head by understanding your limits.
Ya know, the Serenity Prayer
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference.”
We sit/meditate with the fact that our singular perception is very much limited, though it is important it is only a small piece of the larger picture. Because of this there is sometimes a difference between your micro and macro perspectives, your life perspective vs the larger whole perspective. Now stay with me here, we are going to take it one step further. With the micro and macro understanding, picture them as two parts of a whole that interact with each other while also have reactions within themselves.
It is a bit ‘inception-y’ LOL (☞ຈل͜ຈ)☞
This usually produces a sense of absolute wonder and amazing awe as you truly understand the sentiment that “the more you know, the more you know how much you don’t know”
Until you truly grasp the personal power and the humility of this reverent surrender to the fact that in all your efforts to know things, there is an insurmountably amount of things you will never know in one lifetime. We then seek to nullify the need to control it because let’s be honest, nature got along just fine without us intervening. We need to let go of the idea that nature or the natural world is something to dominate. Only then can you speak your truth and have weight to your word.
This forces us to be honest, very honest with ourselves. At a certain point in your healing lying to yourself or others will become out of the question. The inability to be truly honest with yourself will obstruct healing just as strongly as not being able to forgive like we talked about in the heart chakra. Genuine forgiveness and honesty allows us to call back our energy/control from people or places that no longer serve us.
The thing that will diminish your power of choice or be the costliest to your energy, is forming your choices from a place of fear. These kinds of choices are the ones that bite us in the ass over and over again until we get to a point of surrender. Usually at my point I throw my hands up in the air and say “alrightyyyy then, what am I supposed to be learning from this then”
From this we get the very essence of faith. Having faith in something or someone commits a part of our energy to that person or thing. Our energetic commitments become intertwined with every aspect of our lives, and by direct effect so do the consequences ( positive and negative ). We will constantly be shown our personal power is limited through circumstances if we do not hold onto the reverence and surrender discussed above. That is precisely why we must be honest with ourselves and others, the honor and humility that comes with this are so commendable that it shines like a light amongst the dark.
I know, this struggle is absolutely endless…. But again I point you to my example with data and his daughter in the solar plexus chakra post “The effort yields its own rewards.”

It is simply the pursuit of being genuinely and unequivocally yourself with the humility to accept and learn from faults. To not see failures or faults as a bad thing, but an opportunity to exercise the power of choice by choosing to learn from these circumstances rather than give them power and control.
When you have the strength to be honest and kind with yourself then also remove judgement, you can see the flaws and all; you are a beautiful piece of the universe experiencing itself and vise versa. It does help to have the outlook that life is a spiritual journey, and I may lose some of you there. But its important to find what it means to you, don’t take it from me I’m just blabbing telling you what I found it to meant to me.
There is a reason on my very first post for this series I posted a picture that states “You are a collection of unique experiences that provides valuable insight and information into the human experience” . because when people become bold enough to accurately report our life experiences regardless of circumstances, we finally have a place to start to do better. When you are not honest with yourself its like not being honest about where you were stabbed, no one can help you stop the bleeding and properly address the wound.
Once I took the honest step of surrendering control of my life circumstances and overall, I signed a contract to myself, to be genuine and unequivocally be my truest self. It was super simple but went something like this
“I take this faith and place it in You and my higher-self, so that my limited understanding and knowledge will not stunt mine or others growth and greater well-being. Please keep guiding me with the same Love and care, with that I cannot go wrong. So, I free fall in and trust You to keep being You so that I may become the best I can be with little old happy me”
Now I don’t want to go into insane detail or impose my views on others, but when I say “You” in that contract. I mean the laws and inevitability of the cosmos, my own picture of god and/or gods of this experience. Please don’t mistake my spirituality for religiosity.
This blog came out of my life experiences and personal goals to always be a work in progress, a forever student of wisdom, and a better understanding.
