I used to be the shiest person and very creatively blocked.
I used to not even be able to look people in the eye, not to talk about singing in front of someone else, or showing my art to someone else.
Ever since I had found out about the chakras, I’ve been obsessing about opening my throat chakra, because I knew it was the chakra of self-expression.
The fantasy of someone who is afraid to express themselves is just to shout at the top of their lungs: This is who I am! Accept all of me! I am alive.
But these people hide behind masks of shyness, aloof-ness, and many times try to pretend they’re ok in their comfort zone, when in fact they are afraid to express themselves fully.
I think self-expression is the most beautiful thing in the world. You get to dance, sing, paint or be creativ in any other way, and tell people exactly how you feel all the time.
You don’t keep it in tightly, afraid to be hurt if you open your mouth, because at the core you believe you are free and safe in expressing yourself. Especially safe.
So a cool trick is to think about how you as the person that expresses themselves exactly as they desired acts, feels, what do they do. Feel into that, and imitate it a few times a day when you remember.
Do this for 21 days to a month and you will have manifested better self-expression.
To give you an example, I was afraid to speak. So what I did was, when I was alone, do high pitched sounds, so my throat chakra would clear up and also the pain in my neck would go away (I was obviously having somatic trauma there from not expressing myself).
All chakras have sounds you can chant to help heal them:
In order to get more creative, I love finger painting, because it allows you to use touch, sight, smell, and also lets you flow more freely in your creative process.
Doing what excites you on a moment to moment basis can also help you raise your vibration, but also helps you be more creative, because you’re not creating from a stagnant/bored/tired/thought-filled space, but instead it asks you to look for what truly lights you up.
Things like dancing might feel awkward at first, but the less you are afraid to be seen, the less likely you will be to care.
When writing, choose the highest words you possibly can, and when a word pos up that doesn’t feel good, don’t use it. If you train yourself to always pick the highest words based on how they light up in your mind when you write them/even speak them, and based on how they feel, you will get much clearer, to the point texts. Remember your spirit guides are always there to help, but you have to listen to the subtle messages, like when you channel.
Whatever you are creating, create from a place of passion, of putting what excites your heart and makes it sing first.
Or if you want to explore a bit of your dark side, go with it but don’t get lost in it.
And last but not least, affirmations are a great way of becoming more well-expressed.
I easily express myself to others, and others enjoy what they hear from me, it makes their heart sing.
I am a creative artist and I create beautiful things that everybody likes and appreciates.
I speak confidently, clearly, assertively and have a great vocabulary!
Etc! Just create your own and affirm or record on your phone to listen to on repeat.
