The F-Word in this video balances your fifth chakra and helps you discover your life’s purpose. You see, there’s an old adage that says, “The truth will set you free,” and in in my experience, it really does. This week, we’re going to explore why telling the truth helps you create a life you love.
Your fifth chakra is in the area of your throat and it carries a masculine energy. This means it has a penetrative quality, much like the third chakra in your solar plexus. The two are closely connected because you need the qualities of the third chakra — self-confidence, courage and action — to know and express your personal truth.
When your fifth chakra is strong, it gets right to the point. No “beating around the bush.” For this reason, our F-word for the throat chakra is Forthright.
Your throat center represents not only the sound of your voice, but also what and how you choose to communicate and it invites you to be honest, clear and up front.
At any moment, we can communicate anything we want, so it’s best to choose very carefully what we want to express and then to do so in a direct and empowered way. If we do, we tap into a clear sense of our authentic selves before we communicate, and then our communication also reinforces that same sense of self. It becomes an empowering, expansive cycle.
The fifth chakra’s official name in sanskrit is “Visuddha,” which means purity. Think of your throat chakra as a sort of potentially purifying filter – metaphorically and literally. Look at your whole body in a floor-length mirror and notice how your neck is the narrowest point. Think of your lower body and chakras as a four-lane highway, and your fifth chakra as the spot where that four-lane highway gets narrowed down into a single lane.
In other words, not all the “traffic” gets through. For this reason, the throat chakra is the truth center. It’s also the chakra of life purpose, because when you communicate clearly and honestly, you get funneled more and more toward where you truly belong.
Imagine you’re at a job interview and the interviewer asks you if you like to work with numbers. Let’s just say that you hate working with numbers, but because you really want a job, you answer dishonestly and say that you do.
Your true path, your destiny lies in the opposite direction of this kind of number-crunching job, but because you answered out of fear rather than truth, you end up in a vocation you hate. If you choose instead to always be forthright and speak your truth, your life path will begin to reflect who you really are. It has no other option!
Because the fifth chakra is masculine, though, it can come off a little sharp at times. Being forthright does not mean you have to be severe or harsh. Speak your truth, but make sure to move the message through your heart chakra first so you can express your truth while still being caring and respectful toward others.
How do you speak your truth? I challenge you to monitor your communications this week and to choose to be more forthright in every moment. Rather than respond with a cliché, check in and see what is real for you and express that. If you do it consistently enough, you’ll find that you’ll shape a life that’s a perfect fit for you.
