One of the keys to opening the flow of energy in the throat chakra is attunement. The first step to attunement is listening. Listening involves quieting the chatter in the mind. A simple concept but not so simple to put into practice. I have found a daily meditation practice is a great way to help slow down the chatter in the mind. If we think of prayer as asking or speaking to god, meditation is listening.
Using crystals in your meditation practice is a great way to enhance the energy of your meditation. I like to hold one or more crystals while I meditate. To help enhance the energies of the throat chakra and boost our intuition, try incorporating sodalite into your meditation.
Find a quite space and make yourself comfortable. Hold a sodalite or any crystal that speaks to you in your hand. Close your eyes and take a few deep breathes. Allow your breath to come to its natural rhythm. Follow the breath as it moves in and out of the body. In your mind repeat the phrase, “I am listening.” Continue repeating the phrase for one – ten minutes. Then just sit quietly for a few minutes and see what happens.
When you have completed your meditation, carry the crystal near you. Allow the energies of the crystal to remind you that you are listening. Trust the quiet, gentle, supportive voice of your intuition.
