Step into the vortex with me. It’s a vortex you likely didn’t realize you had! And it’s located in your throat. The vortex is your VOICE. It is the center of your personal power and dynamic expression. And there are three main channels within it: Speaking, writing, and singing.
Your vocal vortex is where you speak your truth out loud or in writing. It’s where you authentically sing or express who you are through words (your presence is how you express without words). Words are creative energy and they contain great power. As you speak and call forth through the power of your word, you are affirming that which you say. And molecules begin to rearrange themselves according to your belief and your word. So be careful what you speak, sing and write about. Words can become manifest in our physical reality, whether positive or negative. The choice is up to you!
In fact, one of the most important aspects of your vocal vortex is the power of CHOICE. Making word choices through the power of your free will. Your word is your wand, as author Florence Scovel Shinn says. You are a powerful co-creator with the Universe and maybe you didn’t know it! Your word has great influence over your life and the lives of others. Therefore your voice is a vital source of power and must be used rightly and wisely in this life. It can be used as white or black magic (the energy of love vs. fear). This is why we never want to choose words that manipulate or curse someone else (or ourselves). It’s a negative energy that doesn’t need to be put out into the world!
Say what you mean and mean what you say, but have compassion.
Think before you speak!
You can recognize a vocal blockage within yourself when you are either unclear about your truth in the first place (which happens to everyone)…or if you do know your truth and are afraid to speak it. Speaking too much or too little are also signs of a blocked or imbalanced vocal channel. And other easy ways to identify a vocal blockage is through: A sore throat (vocal sickness, swelling, or damage), stuttering and various speech impediments, a speaking voice that is inauthentically too high or too low, and generally not articulating fluidly. None of this makes you bad or wrong. It’s just your soul communicating that there is stuck energy somewhere; a stagnation of truth within the vocal channel. It happens to all of us from time to time. That’s because life is dynamic; we are dynamic. We are ever evolving and growing, as our hearts and circumstances change throughout our lives.
So how do we strengthen and get on the right track with the use of our vocal vortex?
1. Use your voice as a force for greater good. Speak and write words of kindness, love, hope, truth, appreciation, gratitude, and faith to yourself and others! This means you do not indulge in words of blame, self-pity, shame, guilt, condemnation, self-righteousness, lies, gossip, arrogance, violence or hatred. On the opposite end of the spectrum, don’t be artificially nice. Keep it real, but keep it kind. You have the power to make a more illuminated choice!
2. Use affirmative prayer: “Thank you for my health and prosperity.” “Thank you for keeping my children safe.” You can affirm whatever you want, but keep it positive and grateful, as if it’s already on it’s way to you. Get clear about the essence of what you want and the experience you desire to have. Speak and write ONLY of what you truly desire to be, do, and have. Stay on a higher frequency and keep the faith!
3. Keep your vortex channel clear! You can do this by singing or journaling (free style writing). Let yourself flow through happy singing, toning, humming, whistling, laughing… and freely writing your thoughts, ideas and feelings by hand. Writing via typing is good too, but writing by hand is better to initially clear the channel. Any form of creative writing, drawing, painting, and storytelling is generally good for this, too.
4. Talk to your trusted friends! The people in your tribe who listen and support without judgment. Healthy people have a safe outlet to express themselves to others. Furthermore, TELL YOUR TRUTH, even when it’s difficult. Not by being harsh and brutal to people, but by sharing your truth in a firm, but gracious manner. Facts are facts (i.e. someone hurt you), but the truth is anchored in love and is unafraid to heal by taking responsibility for your own energy. And that often involves forgiving yourself and others!
