The Power of Will - Communication - 5th Chakra

Medical Intuition – 5th Centre Issues – The Power of Will – Communication

Ahh, the power of communication. We all need validation – to be heard – to be seen. As Oprah said in her last show, “Do you hear me? Does what I say matter to you?” It is imperative for health to “Speak your truth, to the right person, at the right time, with the right intensity.” ~ Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz – Pathways to Medical Intuition.

Intuitively tune-in and see where there are blockages in your life that are related to your 5th chakra “communication centre”. Have a look at your current physical symptoms and see if there is a connection to your voice.

When you speak your truth and find your voice, synchronicity and coincidence will blossom. Speak with honour and integrity. When you have faith, self-knowledge and personal authority, you live in integrity and it can’t help but have positive emotional, physical and spiritual growth for you and those around you. Remember your voice, your will, and your freedom to choose. Empowerment comes from within. Embrace it!

Chords of Connection to the 5th Centre

Physical Connection: The Body

  • throat, thyroid, trachea, esophagus, parathyroid, hypothalamus, neck vertebrae, mouth, jaw, teeth.

If you have dis-ease with any of these areas, then you may have 5th centre blockages.

Energetic Connection: Choice

  • “All illness has a connection to the 5th chakra, because choice is involved in every detail of our lives and therefore in every illness.” Caroline Myss – Anatomy of the Spirit

Symbolic Connection: Spiritual Growth

  • Your journey through this life is a gateway to ameliorate your will, through maturation, from tribal authority over you, to realization of your control over personal choices, to aligning your will with Universal Divinity. The power of choice is within you.

“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”

Following is a true personal story of overcoming my fears around having a voice and being heard.

Shyness – Finding My Voice

I was attending the wedding of my younger sister. While at the reception I had the pleasure of visiting, chatting with and meeting several people that I went to high school with. While in the midst of a conversation with a particular high school chum, he flatly, blurted out, “You were such a snob in high school.” WHAT!!!, I exclaimed, with an incredulous, chirpy tone about two octaves above where I had previously held the conversation. “I would have talked to you more, but you were such a snob in school. You turned your nose up at me.” Clearly, he had found the courage to find HIS voice and share his opinions about who I was.

I felt like I had just been slammed hard in the gut. I chocked on my drink, coughed and muttered something about being “shy”. What was this man telling me? I had carried the label of "the shy one" in the family my whole life. I was quiet and introspective. I could not believe what I was hearing.

The expression “painfully shy” rung true for me. It was extremely painful for me to speak up in a crowd, in a classroom, in a work setting. I would have given anything to be part of that group of friends that he belonged to. As a teenager, when someone said hello to me, I bowed my head and sheepishly replied in a whisper, to ensure I didn’t offend. I was aching to be seen and heard while simultaneously hoping and praying, to be invisible. I was the proverbial wallflower – not a risk taker - a follower.

From that day, I honoured my intuition. This was a divine message for me to pay attention and listen to what the universe had presented as a gift and a lesson, to fully embrace my voice. As much as I was terrified of reaching out, I began my healing journey (cutting the chords of the past), reaching out to shake a hand, say hello to a stranger, or make eye contact. When I did this, the opportunities in my world grew exponentially. I embraced life. I began to blossom and come alive. I invite you to do the same.

Please leave a comment or a share about any experiences you have had with 5th chakra struggles, growth or questions. I would love to hear from you. Your choices construct your spiritual karma. Every day is a new beginning to create a magnificent and fulfilled future.
