The meeting of November 24, 2010 was unusual. The Council appeared in the order of the chakras they resonate with. Thus we had The Guardians, The Girls, The Visionaries, The Matriarch, Eloheim, The Warrior and then Fred. They came in to explain, in further detail, how each work with our energy and to help us learn to use the Strongest Chakra tool.

Here is Eloheim’s section of that meeting:

Eloheim: We knew it was going to be a weird meeting when the Guardians decided to have such a long talk in the beginning. Any time the Guardians decide to say a lot, something is up. That’s your first clue. If the Guardians have a lot to say, the energies are awakened. And then when we got to… we told Veronica after that: OK, we’re just going to go up the chakras, she said, “No, I don’t want to talk to The Girls.” And we said: Well, we want to go up the chakras. And she said, “I am willing, I am willing, I am willing.” Because you fall back on that one. It works every time. Part of the reason she didn’t want to talk to The Girls is because she didn’t want to talk about energy coming in, because it’s been an extremely hard few days just looking at that, looking at energy coming in, looking at interacting with the world, looking at how the interactions with the world have changed over time and haven’t changed over time, as the case may be. So, she was like, “I don’t know if I can handle it,” yet, once again, made something very, very hard look easy. So, let’s see what we want to talk about.

We’ll start off with the throat chakra and then we know we have at least one question. Throat chakra. Reminder. Throat chakra is not just talking but painting, sculpting, driving in your car. It’s expressing yourself. How do you express yourself? What color shirt did you put on? What kind of pants did you buy? What color shoes do you like? It’s your expression. Creativity is a way to be in your throat chakra. Making your website, that’s throat chakra. You could say, “Well, it’s third chakra. It’s walking into the world.” Yeah, eventually. But that beginning stage when it’s that expression, the expression of you, the expression of you, that is the throat chakra.

And part of what goes on with the idea of the throat chakra is that “I don’t know how to express myself because I don’t know who I am. I don’t know what I like. I don’t know what I want.” And the whole light-worker, doormat, no boundaries, no preferences thing kicks in, and, “I’m not allowed to know. My family didn’t treat me right, so I’m not allowed to know. I didn’t have a good childhood, so I never figured out what I wanted. I don’t have enough money, so I can’t do the things I want to do.” A lot of limitation comes in around the throat. A lot of limitation comes in. And a lot of ideas of “I can’t do it” have a lot to do with the throat chakra, too. “I can’t express. I can’t share. I can’t give my point of view. I can’t stand up here and say what the truth of me is.” A lot of that is throat chakra. And when you invite yourself into an exploration of your throat chakra, where you really end up is: “Oh, you mean I have to know what I’m talking about before I talk.” And by that we mean: “I have to know what matters to me. I have to know what’s important to me. I have to know what I care about. I have to know what I like and what I don’t like. I have to know what my boundaries and preferences are. I have to know what my judgments are. I have to know me in order to express me. I have to know me in order to express me.”

So, sometimes people who are quiet, they’re quiet not because they’re shy, necessarily, a lot of times that is the case, but maybe they’re shy because they don’t know who they are yet. When you run around with teenagers, a lot of times they’re very quiet. They don’t say a lot. Well sometimes they don’t say a lot because they think, “I don’t know enough about me to say anything.” And then when you apply that to consciousness studies it becomes, “Well, I don’t want to say anything that’s not conscious and maybe I haven’t quite yet decided what is conscious, so maybe I’m not going to say anything at all.”

The important aspect of this is this: Even if you can’t put it into words you can still balance out your throat chakra by expressing it. Draw a picture. Wear a different color shirt. Choose your clothes based on how you feel, not just on what’s clean. Let yourself do the dishes in a different order. It’s how you express what’s true for you now, is a way to really balance the throat chakra. How you express what’s true for you. However you feel like expressing yourself. You’re there at the coffee shop: “Do I feel like being a regular coffee person today or do I want to be a different kind of coffee person today? I’m at the grocery store. Do I want to get the regular stuff I get or do I want to get different stuff?” That’s all throat chakra. Maybe a little surprisingly, but that’s throat chakra. That way of expressing the choices and the reflection of the truth of you. That can all help you with your throat chakra.

We know a lot of people who look at good orators and say, “Oh God, I could never be like that, so I’ll never balance my throat chakra.” That’s why we really want to talk about this tonight. Because it’s not just words, it’s how you allow yourself to have that creative expression. It’s like your garden. That’s your creative expression. One of them. So that’s the throat chakra. It’s: “I have this creativity and I’m expressing the truth of me expressed,” and then of course you get your third eye thinking, “Where should I put the plants?” And you get your power chakra helping you out there digging around. But that initial expression of the truth of you, “God, I really like that kind of tomato. I’m going to plant that kind of tomato this year. And then I’m going to plant it in this barrel because that one did well last year, and I’m going to get stuff from the hardware store. And then when I’m at the hardware store, I’m going to let the information from the hardware store lady come in when she tells me that she thinks she knows what kind of tomatoes I should plant and I know I’ve got boundaries, she’s wrong, and I’m going to plant the ones I like because I feel rooted into my life when I have a garden. It helps me feel the truth of me. And then I have love for my yard, my garden, my surroundings.” You see how that all goes together?

So, you can practice, at least all the chakras we’ve gotten to… well, we included the other one, and you know Fred is just buzzing around out there, so it’s not hard to do that one. But you see how you can bring all the chakras into play even in something as ordinary—not simple, not easy, but ordinary—common in this world that we’re in this circle to have a garden, but you can really acknowledge that the different aspects of you are a part of it. Does that help?

Speaking is an obvious aspect of the throat chakra experience, so it is helpful when you speak to remember to speak the truth of you. Not just the appreciation you have for yourself, but the entirety of the truth of you. Because you’ll be amazed at actually how much people learn from you sharing the parts of yourself that are under construction. If you don’t show people that it’s OK to be under construction, who’s going to? Honestly. If you don’t show people that it’s OK to be under construction, who’s going to? And if you’re not accepting of yourself being under construction, then who’s going to?
