How many times have you been told by friends, family, life coaches and personal improvement columns that you need to learn how to communicate better, how to express yourselves better?
Expressing ourselves and communication are all properties of the throat chakra. Episode 047 is all about talking! Not necessarily the kind you might expect. 🙂
We talk (pun intended 🙂 ) about everything from the location of the throat chakra (may not be what you think), what you can do to strengthen it and most importantly what you should not do.

- The fifth chakra (aka throat chakra) is called vishuddha in Sanskrit
- Tim is singing, Talk About It by Funky Town: https://youtu.be/ax68rWI4Tuk
- Vishuddha translates to pure, established, thoroughly settled
- A person with a healthy throat chakra does not randomly give opinions without prior knowledge
- The location of the throat chakra is in the neck, brain stem area, in particular in the medulla obloganta
- This makes the throat chakra all about communication and coordination internally (within ourselves) and externally (within our community)

- Our C1 vertebrae is our atlas which supports our universe, just like the mythological Titan who was tasked with supporting the heavens on his shoulders
- Our vagus nerve originating at our medulla obloganta is the most important nerve in terms of coordination between our three brains
- The story of the famous Vagabonds (Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, and John Burroughs) that Tim talks about can be found here: https://youtu.be/ObKE1m3EmdE

- One of the ways to stimulate your throat chakra is through singing, whether it is good singing or bad singing 🙂
- Gargling with coconut oil is another way to stimulate your throat chakra
- The element associated with the throat chakra is the ether, or space
- Space is what allows for communication and coordination of the other four elements to take place
- Mutual listening allows for the creation of common ground between two parties
- The color is blue and the crystals are aqua marine and blue sapphire
- Breathwork with retention after inhalation, or exhalation, or both, is a very powerful strengthener for the throat chakra
