For Mindful Monday, here is a clip of a Quartz Crystal singing bowl tuned to the note of "G." This note correlates with the Fifth Chakra which is is also known as the Throat Chakra. Some of the functions of this chakra are expression, communication, creativity, connection to spirit, speaking truth, and realization of purpose. Physically, it is associated with the throat, mouth, jaw, tongue, palate, ears, thyroid, shoulders, and neck.
When we have energy blocks in this chakra, we may feel insecure in our communication skills, timid, or feel uncertain in how to put our purpose into action. If this chakra is over active, we may speak too much or inappropriately, lack an ability to listen to others, lie, or break our word.
Below are some ways to balance the 5th Chakra:
-humming, chanting, reading aloud, or singing. One of the best mantras for the throat chakra is “Sat Nam, Sat Nam, Sat Nam, Sat Nam, Sat Nam, Sat Nam, Wahe Guru”. This is Gurmukhi and one of the translations is "truth is my identity" (Sat Nam) "wow!/I am in awe of that which brings me from darkness to light" (Wahe Guru) -think before speaking and be conscious in your communication -use a singing bowl tuned to the note of "G" before a meditation practice -wear blue, turquoise, or aquamarine
-carry, meditate with, or wear jewelry that contains crystals such as lapis lazuli, angelite, turquoise, chrysocolla, sodalite
