Here are some tools that bring self-expression and creativity to the body.
Sit and image a grounding cord going down from the base of your spine into the center of the earth. This grounding cord can be like a waterfall, a tree trunk or a beam of light. Sense the grounding cord going down all the way through the earth to the fiery center of Mother Earth. Release Energy down your grounding cord starting at the top of your head, down your neck and the channels on either side of your spine, all the way down your grounding cord to the center of the Earth. Take a deep breath and continue to release energy keeping this grounding cord attached near the base of your spine and the center of the earth. With practice you will begin to stay grounded. You can get my Chakra CD for a more extensive grounding practice as well as to learn to clear your chakras.
Energy gets stuck in the fifth chakra from unexpressed thoughts and beliefs. Also other people can unknowingly send us energy that blocks our ability to communicate as well. I see this often when I am doing psychic readings. I may see some blocked energy coming from the back of the neck. When I read this situation it is often a friend or family member of the client who does not want the client to say something or to make a decision that would affect them negatively. A great way to keep the throat chakra clear is through singing. Find some music you love and sing along. Sing loudly and softly and play with the sound. Let it be fun.
Toning is also a great way to clear the fifth chakra. I remember about 20 years ago while taking a bath I realized I was getting sick. All of the sudden I felt feverish and started feeling really ill. I intuitively began to tone, to make sound deep from my belly. I did this for about 10 minutes, just varying the sound, naturally following what felt right and was able to heal myself immediately. I was so excited and surprised about this I researched and found a tape on Toning by Steven Halpren. I started practicing moving energy through my throat chakra using the sounds of A…E…I….O…and U. Use this same method to clear your fifth chakra starting with A… and toning quietly and then getting louder and move the tone up and down feeling it in your whole body. I found that this not only clears the 5th chakra, but clears all of the chakras. You can just focus on each chakra and then use sound to clear yourself.
Chanting is another way to clear the 5th chakra. There are many great chants available from many sources. Find the chants that feel healing to your body.
Telling stories is another way to clear the fifth chakra. Talking with others from your heart is particularly helpful. The other side of this is to stop telling stories about negative things that have happened to you if you find you tell the same story over and over. Once you stop focusing on this past, you will free up for new energy for the present.
Journaling and automatic writing is helpful to clear the fifth chakra. If you find when you journal you come across something that has a charge or is significant, read this aloud or share it with a friend. If something continues to come up over and over you may want to read it again and again until it no longer has a charge for you.
