This is a part of a 21 day meditation series with Deepak Chopra & Oprah Winfrey. I have been illustrating the 7 energy centres/chakras of the body with the corresponding colours. All the colours are from FLOWERS & VEGETATION I have seen around me. I am continually in wonder at how spoilt we are for colour here all around us for inspiration and healing. Todays chakra is especially poignant for my website focussing on Self Expression - below is an excerpt from Deepak Chopra
5th chakra - throat - self expression - BLUE
The fifth chakra is how we give voice to the uniqueness of our existence. Today in meditation, we sustain the flow of authentic expression that we activated over the last weeks. It is through this current of energy that we are able to receive and celebrate the specialness of our role in the universe with ourselves and others. Why is our self-expression a gift to others? It is a gift in the same way that every voice in a choir is essential to the whole song.
Communicating your life and presence to the world is a gift, but it is also spiritually significant. No one else can be who you are. No one else can fulfill your role in life. Creation requires you to come forward to be and share your true self. When you do, you encourage everyone else to shine forth in their full glory as well.
