The throat chakra, or fifth chakra, was the focus of one of my most recent Reiki treatments. Although, when I began treating the receiver, I did not know that specific location was in need of balancing. The location that I was focusing on was the heart. However, after a few minutes of focusing my attention on the heart, I was ready to move my hands to a different position. My intuition told me to keep my hands in the same position, but move my hands up a few inches higher, closer to the throat and neck. As I moved my hands, I could feel a stronger pull of energy through my hands; and my body felt more frozen like I needed to stay in one place…right there on the throat.
At the end of the treatment, the receiver validated my intuition and hand placement. The receiver said that when my hands were moving from the heart to the throat, in their mind they were thinking, “yep, that’s where it’s at.” Further, the receiver mentioned earlier that day they met with a friend and had a deep and intense conversation. Since communication, beliefs, and values are main foundations of the throat chakra, the receiver’s throat chakra needed to be calmed and balanced. As a Reiki Master, I calm the strain of communication.
