Every culture has its systems and definitions to describe, after all, the same things.
Today we talk about chakras, the energy centers located near our physical body according to the Vedic tradition (India).
The fifth one in particular. Our throat.
.
This chakra develops, just like an organ, between the age of 7 to 12 years; its function is for creative expression, communication skills and symbolic thinking; access to learning and creativity tools.
.
Its development coincides perfectly with the phase of the “latency period” of Freudian psychoanalysis, a period in which the child goes towards autonomy, acquires skills and strengthens the relationship with the external world, outside the family.
.
What Anodea Judith calls the “demon” of this chakra (we could say with Jung “the shadow side”) is the lie, both said and heard.
.
Vocal emission is one of the techniques for balancing and healing this center.
.
Let’s try this game: take 5 minutes for yourself, place your feet firmly on the ground (sitting or standing), breathe and say all the vowels one after the other (AEIOU) to a volume where you feel comfortable and that you can keep for a few minutes.
Repeat the sequence several times, until you begin to hear one of these vowels particularly present in the throat area (you may experience a feeling of warmth, increased vibration, tingling…)
.
Concentrate on the physical sensations, the thoughts, the emotions that emerge.
Then write them. You can do it every day and keep your logbook.
