Every Woman Should Consider A Throat Chakra Healing! Here Is Why

Published

Throat Chakra Healing Image

For women, the throat chakra is one of the most problematic areas. That’s why every woman needs to consider a throat chakra healing.

Why Do Women Have Blocks In Their Throat Chakras?

From time immemorial, women have never been welcomed to express their feelings, emotions, or opinions, – it has always been the prerogative of men. For women, oratory was considered a disadvantage rather than a virtue. The advantage of women was the ability to remain silent, to suppress the desire to speak and express themselves. Whether we like it or not, the block in the throat chakra is passed on to us, women, at the genetic level from generation to generation.

When the inner truth is not spoken aloud but is suppressed, the creative energy (CHA) cannot be manifested. And when the energy is blocked, it becomes a destructive force (SO).

Common Reasons of  the Blocks In Women’s Throat Chakras

I noticed that nowadays many women can’t discuss their true feelings, which undoubtedly leads to the blocking of the throat chakra.

Another reason for the imbalance or blockage in the throat chakra is dysfunction of the thyroid gland. The mental reason for this is the lack of creative realization, the inability, and fears of self-expression. This is why women have more frequent thyroid problems than men. Men are easier to implement themselves using a business that actually is their “creativity”.

The third most common reason for the throat chakra problem is criticism. Women tend to criticize themselves as well as others. This can cause a cough or even asthma.

Fear to express your truth, feelings, and emotions also can affect the condition of the gums and teeth. A suppressed desire to speak can cause pain and inflammation in the gums and the sensitivity of your teeth.

Why Is the Throat Chakra So Important?

Vishuddha (throat chakra) is responsible for communication with other people and for creative self-expression. This is where inspiration and personal development begin. This chakra also gives us the ability to listen and hear – not only other people but also our own inner voice.

Vishuddha Chakra Test Image

The throat chakra is located in the larynx, at the base of the neck.

These are the signs of imbalanced Vishuddha:

– difficulty in expressing thoughts;
– fear of public speaking;
profanity;
– grumbling;
– lie;
– criticism, condemnation of yourself and others.

Now let’s talk about how to do a throat chakra healing.

7 Ways To Do A Throat Chakra Healing

1. Mantra Chanting

The throat chakra is associated with sound through speech and music. Any word that is spoken aloud creates vibrations in the surrounding world. These vibrations can be beneficial or harmful. It all depends on the intentions and desires with which the words were spoken.

Vishuddha chakra mantra sounds like “HAM”.

When you’re chanting the mantra you need to feel the vibration in the area of your throat chakra.

To perform HAM mantra for your throat chakra healing you need to:

  1. take a deep breath;
  2. at the moment of exhalation, open your lips and sing the beginning of the mantra: “ha-a-a…»;
  3. close your lips and sing the ending: “m-m-m-m»;
  4. then take another breath and repeat the cycle.

While singing the mantra feel the expanding of the throat chakra. Visualize that the neck and throat are filled with pure blue light. Continue for at least 5 minutes.

At the end of the exercise, you will feel the energy pulsating in the neck area. It is a sign of the throat chakra activation.

2. Yantra Meditation

Yantra is a unique mystical symbol used for meditation. Yantra for Vishuddha chakra is a triangle pointing downwards. Inside the triangle, there is a circle. For your throat chakra healing, it is very powerful to do a Vishuddha yantra meditation.

Vishuddha Yantra Meditation

For performing a Vishuddha Yantra meditation you need a picture of Vishuddha Yantra. You can draw it by hand, print it, or use a video animation.

Take a pose for meditation. The spine should be straight. Place the picture of the yantra next to you so that you can see it well.

Start studying the yantra. The three sides of the triangle represent the past, present, and future. It is important to remember all these times in order to remain in the present, to awaken to the life of an Eternal being.

The circle inside the triangle indicates the dormant psychic abilities in each of us. We get our freedom when we manage to open the throat chakra. However, your main attention should be focused on the continuation of spiritual development and the acquisition of Divine consciousness.

Now it is time to also think about ways to communicate with others. What kind of atmosphere do you create around you?
Are you ready for a deeper communication with others?

In the following days, watch your behavior. What and how do you say? What do you bring to the surrounding space — goodness or disharmony?

After completing your thoughts, sit still for a couple of minutes.

3. Writing

Writing notes image

Writing a diary is another powerful way to do your throat chakra healing. It is very helpful to write down all your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, especially if you don’t feel comfortable sharing them with others. Writing will help you remove the block from your throat, especially if you will read what you wrote out loud.

4. Aromatherapy

Using aromatherapy is another wonderful tool you can use for your throat chakra healing. Essential oils can actually remove the block in your Vishuddha. For this purpose, you can use sandalwood and lavender oil (aroma lamp, inhalation, etc.).

5. Clothing

heart chakra meditation image

Did you know that the clothes that you’re wearing can actually help you with your throat chakra healing? For this purpose, when you’re choosing your clothes give preference to blue color. Ideally, it would be wearing a blue scarf around your neck. The vibration of blue color will resonate with the vibrations of the throat chakra and strengthen it.

6. Crystals

Another powerful tool for opening your throat chakra are crystals. It’s very good for your throat chakra healing to wear a necklace with lapis lazuli, blue calcite, aquamarine, turquoise, sodalite, amazonite, or blue tourmaline.

7. Nature

Mindful meditation image

The element of the throat chakra is ether. That’s why spending time outside under the open the blue sky is already a healing itself. Spend more time in nature looking and meditating on the blue sky.

Conclusion

As you can see Throat chakra healing is very important especially for women. Learn to talk about your feelings and express yourself! Many women are afraid of looking weak, silly and even judged. But the thing is – it shouldn’t matter. This is the ego that wants you to stay quiet and in your “comfort zone”.

Best Crystals for Healing Depression: Crystal Therapy 101

Crystals For Healing Depression Image

Are you feeling sad all the time? Have you lost interest in your favorite hobbies or do you experience recurring mood swings? Are all these affecting your performance at work, relationship or your school grades? Chances are you are depressed, and using crystals for healing depression might be a viable option for you.

What is Depression?

Depression is a medical condition that affects your brain and consequently your nervous system. A good percent of the population suffers from depression. The difference is in the level of depression. The following symptoms are signs of depression:

  • Feeling tired all the time or just lacking energy
  • You dread being with people, and you always feel better alone
  • Feeling agitated and restless
  • Feeling like you always want to cry
  • You suddenly don’t want to do the things you enjoy
  • Feeling like everyone and everything is against you

With time, most severely depressed patients turn to drugs, alcohol, and other negative vices to help them cope with the depression. As you seek medical attention, try other alternatives like crystal therapy.

How Do Crystals for Healing Depression Work?

Our entire body system is just energy that shows up in different densities and patterns. And our thoughts and emotions are connected to our physical bodies and have a frequency of their own. When these energies work in a balanced way, we experience good health. However, when these energies are distorted, we experience ill health.

For centuries, crystals have been used to restore health to persons suffering from many ailments including depression. Crystals for healing depression work like a magnet, draw in all the negative energy in and around you and replace it with positive ones. This in effect corrects any imbalance in your body that had manifested itself as a disease.

Types of Crystals for Healing Depression

Different types of crystals work to target different types of imbalances and hence disorders. Below are some of the most popular crystals for healing depression; hopefully some of them can be your alternative way of treating depression for you or your loved one.

Citrine

Citrine image

This pale yellow stone radiates warmth all around and in turn diffuses any negative energy in your chakras. This crystal will calm you down and reawaken your interests in the unique gifts you possess. It works by cleansing your chakras, especially the third chakra (located in your abdomen just below the lower rib), which is the entry point of most negative energies we have. With time, all those destructive energies like suicide attempts, irritability, and anxiety build up due to depression will clear off your mind

It is a rare crystal, and therefore, quite expensive. Once you find it, just hold the crystal as you meditate. Align your desire to overcome depression with your highest good and path and let this crystal manifest your desires.

Sunstone

Holding the sunstone is like having the real sun in your hands. This single stone radiates warmth in its gold, red, orange and brown hues. Do you feel like your life is at a stalemate? Are you going through burnout in your career? It is time to clear your mind.

Use the sunstone to focus the sun’s warmth and openness in bringing you freedom and self-empowerment to work harder and see the opportunities that depression had blocked you from seeing. You can customize your key holder using sunstone. Such ornaments, when worn daily, can awaken your feelings of independence.

Carnelian

Carnelian image

Depression tends to make us forget how daring we are in handling tough situations. Take the Egyptian master architects for example. When the strain of endless years of building pyramids took a toll on them, these architects wore the carnelian as a necklace or bracelet to boost their motivation in getting the job done. Now, history can attest to what these architects achieved.

This polished translucent stone will captivate you with its brilliance. Are you feeling demotivated about going to work? Do you lack the drive to lead your company to hit that next milestone? Does your training for the upcoming marathon seem like too much for you to endure? Use ‘the setting sun’ gem to restore your courage to conquer hurdles. Place the carnelian at any of your first four lower chakras and get invigorated.

Tiger’s Eye

Tiger’s Eye Image

For centuries, this mysterious yet powerful golden brown gem’s vibrational healing has been used to avert evil spirits and spells. Did you know that even the Roman soldiers wore it when going for battle? It has combined the sun and the earth’s protective energies to increase our self-worth and self-love, which makes it the best ammunition against depression.

Anytime you are about to deal with a negative person, like those people who you just can’t stand, or you need to square out some differences with that annoying neighbor, wear this gem and it will protect you from all the negative energy in your aura.

Other Gems

Other crystals that can help you to fight depression include:

  • Amazonite can balance mood swings.
  • Amethyst that induces tranquility to your chaotic life.
  • Aventurine will help you feel loved and wanted again even as you fight that terminal illness.
  • Agate will help you to reason when under a lot of pressure.
  • Garnet will make you feel stable and secure again when all odds are against you.
  • Finally, ladies’ emerald is ideal for ladies who want to clear negative thoughts and promote harmony in their lives.

Well, the list is endless.

Conclusion

Whatever issue is causing your depression, you don’t have to dwell on it too much, lest it destroys you. Wake up and reach out to what Mother Nature is giving you. There are so many creative ways that you can use crystals for healing depression. Whether you want to wear them as bracelets or necklaces, place them randomly in your house, carry a combination of one or more stones, or incorporate the rocks in your daily meditation, the healing benefits are still the same.

And like I always say, I am not a medical doctor. I am a beneficiary of crystal therapy, and I want to share my knowledge and experiences with the world. If you have depression, always seek medical attention even as you use the above crystals for healing depression.

Boost Your Sanity With These Essential Oils For Depression

Essential Oils For Depression Image

Humanity has used essential oils for centuries for an array of purposes. Their most popular use has always been a medicine capable of treating a wide array of diseases. Their popularity once frayed, but it recently picked up following science’s declaration that essential oils indeed have vast medicinal properties.

Different types of essential oils have different medicinal effects. Some are capable of treating a wide range of mental conditions, including depression. In this article, I will share important information about essential oils for depression. I will also let you in on how we use the oils for treatment in Ayurvedic aromatherapy. It will help you to live a positive life.

The Origin of Essential Oils

It is important to understand how they make essential oils to appreciate how they work so well with our body. Essential oils are extracted from a wide variety of plants and flowers. They are extracted from different parts of the plants depending on the oils. We extract Basil oil, for instance, from the roots while we extract cinnamon oil from the bark.

The exact extraction methods vary, but they have been improving over the centuries. Essential oils are highly refined today thanks to years of research as well as the utilization of technology. Consequently, they have become more effective, and their uses have diversified.

Top Four Best Essential Oils for Depression

There are several types of essential oils proven effective by science against depression. However, some work faster than others do.

Jatamansi

Jatamansi essential oil image

Jatamansi is revered as the most powerful essential oil against depression in ancient Indian medicine. Modern science supports this too as it has discovered that Jatamansi increases levels of GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid), which has healing effects of depression, anxiety, and a variety of other mental conditions.

The oil also increases the production of monoamines in the body, and these too reduce the effects of depression and anxiety. We use Jatamansi to treat depression by inhalation or ingesting it orally. It is a heavy sedative, and I recommend using it in a relaxed and settled setting.

Holy Basil

basil image

We categorize Holy Basil among adaptogens, a class of drugs that bring balance to the body and mind. It has numerous medicinal properties and it one of the best essential oils for depression.

Holy Basil cures stress, depression, and anxiety by decreasing the production of a hormone known as corticosterone. Science links this hormone with feelings of stress and depression. This essential oil also reduces the production of other hormones associated with stress and promotes the production of relaxing hormones.

Holy basil is safe to ingest orally, inhale, apply around the body, and bath with, hence making it convenient for everyone.

Lavender

lavender essential oil image

Lavender is one of the most widely used essential oils for depression, and its benefits include overcoming physical fatigue. Researchers especially credit it with potent anti-depression and anti-anxiety properties. In fact, it is so effective against anxiety that government has approved it as an anxiolytic in Germany.

Research conducted on lavender oil has revealed that it contains high levels of linalyl acetate and linalool. These hormones have a potent relaxing and calming effect on the mind as well as the body. This is what makes lavender particularly effective when it comes to curing stress and anxiety. It also works well for the body for those who always feel fatigued.

Lavender is very convenient, and you can apply it in two ways: by ingesting it as capsule drops and through inhalation. I suggest that you complement both applications for quick results.

German Chamomile

camomile essential oil image

Chamomile is popular as a sleep-inducing essential oil. Its sleep-inducing properties treat depression and anxiety. One of the ways it beats depression is by stimulating the brain to secrete relaxation hormones. The other way it does this is by working through the stomach.

Sandwiched among other organs in the stomach is the Enteric Nervous System, popularly referred to as the body’s “second brain”. This organ contributes to bad moods, stress, and depression when exposed to inflammation. German Chamomile is effective in curing inflammation in the stomach, hence reducing the chances of suffering from stress and depression.

We ingest German chamomile to get the most out of its anti-depressant and anti-anxiety benefits. You can also inhale it just like many other essential oils for depression.

How to Use Essential Oils for Depression

There are several ways to use essential oils to cure depression. The applications depend on the type of essential oil as well as the patient’s preferences. They include:

Inhalation

Inhalation is the best way of using essential oil to cure depression. The nose connects to an important sensory organ known as the olfactory nerve. All scents that pass through this nerve directly transmit to the brain for purposes of smell. This, consequently, hastens the effect of essential oils when it comes to depression (a condition affecting your brain).

We inhale Essential oils for depression directly or burn them with incense. This, again, depends on the type of essential oil as well as the patient’s preferences. They have a calming and soothing effect that is often accompanied by the release of hormones capable of fighting depression.

Direct Application

Just as the olfactory nerve transmits all scents directly to the brain, other organs and nerves all over the body are also capable of transmitting signals and other elements to the brain. However, these take more time and effort. Therefore, applying essential oils to the body also helps to fight and cure depression.

We apply directly through massages to the whole body. The sensation felt during massage also helps to calm the mind and produce relaxation hormones that also contribute to the treatment. However, complement direct application with inhalation to ensure maximum effect, especially in severe depression cases.

Aromatic Baths

Aroma bath image

Aromatic baths combine both inhalation and skin application when using essential oils for depression treatment. You simply add several drops of essential oils to warm bathing water and soak in it. The oil runs all over our body, as you inhale the steam generated from the warm water. This method, consequently, is the most effective.

Disclaimer

Please note that this article is purely based on the known effects of essential oils against depression. Do not confuse it with treatment advice. Depression is a serious mental condition, and I advise you to visit a physician for proper medical care.

healing crystals for anxiety image

We have all been anxious about uncertain or unsafe situations at some point in our lives. I know I have.
