THROAT CHAKRA
 COMMUNICATE AUTHENTICALLY

Share genuinely with others


      CHAKRA FIVE: THROAT: EXPRESSION, COMMUNICATION
  
Communication is essential to create successful relationships.  Without open, honest expression of our wants, desires and needs, relationships soon become stale, falter and fail.  In tantra we learn to express ourselves fully, authentically.  When we communicate authentically,  masks come down and we meet each other outside our facades.  With authentic communication and empathetic listening, we learn how to hear beyond the tone or volume of the voice our partner uses that may seem harsh, to reach the underlying pain, and listen with love and understanding.  When we do this for another, we create the space for our own personal evolution.  For "to know me is to love me."  We cannot even begin to know ourselves unless we are real with others and create a safe space for them to be real with us. 

Express withholds but don't dump.  Learn how to communicate kindly. Use gentle tones when possible yet allow yourself a time and place away from others to yell, if you have to.  Talk about your negative emotions without inflicting them on your partners.  Create a time and space for emotional catharsis.  Invite your lover to listen with love.  Be  there for them when they need to be heard.  Discharge and release pent-up frustrations and negativities in healthy ways, such as exercise.  Allow your partner to express fully without using anger to censor them. 

Learn methods of communication and healing that will benefit all of your relationships: lovers, children, co-workers, family and friends.  Clear your energy centers for love, fun and pleasure.  You're worthy.  You deserve all the joy life can give.
