Spiritual Lessons: Surrendering to Divine Truth, expression of ideas, clear communication
*It is the seat of self-expression and verbal communication.
*It is where you verbalize ideas, speak needs, speak Truth, stand up for yourself, assert will, and express creativity.
*Emotions felt in the Heart are carried through the Higher Heart to be voiced in the Throat. Since the Throat is the conduit for the Heart, the tongue will speak what is in the Heart.
*Speaking is a large part of the creative process. When manifesting a desire, your spoken words carry a creative vibration into the Universe. The Universe does not distinguish between casual and formal requests. What you speak is what you get.
*The Throat stores your ability to speak truthfully. When you speak falsely, either from lying or omission, you create an energetic imbalance. The same is true for gossip. Through the Throat you process and assimilate the communicative information you receive from others.
*Through the Throat you express your powerful right to choose. Just as every spoken word is sent out in energy form to the Universe, every choice has lasting energetic effects and a power all its own. Every choice you make sets you on a path to express your will or give away your power.
*It is aligned between the Heart and the Third Eye and enabling you to think with your heart.
*It is the balance of your emotional and mental intentions.
*It is through the Throat that you align personal will with Divine will. You utter words of confession and faith, apology and forgiveness, surrender and resistance. You speak Truth and Love or denial and fear.
*The Throat is where Divine will is made manifest; and, you as a co-Creator speak your world into being.
