Accept what has happened, learn from it and start anew. Located at the throat and associated with the aspect space, the vishuddhi chakra governs the cervical spine, the voice box, speech and listening to, and the thyroid and parathyroid endocrine glands, which regulate our metabolism. Creative expression, connection to the Divine, and the transmittal of focus are themes of the vishuddhi. Distortions of energy in this chakra may end up in difficulties in genuine expression, and in taking in nourishment of all kinds. Many standard yoga practices target the throat: the shoulderstand, plow pose, lion and fish poses; the chin lock, upper wash, ujjayi and bhramari pranayamas; and chanting the names of the Divine during kirtan. Know that at this early stage you aren’t able to control the effect the communication has on you.
