The Throat Chakra and Your Mind in a NON-FOOFOO Way


  • The fifth chakra (aka throat chakra) is called vishuddha in Sanskrit
  • Tim is singing, Talk About It by Funky Town: https://youtu.be/ax68rWI4Tuk
  • Vishuddha translates to pure, established, thoroughly settled
  • A person with a healthy throat chakra does not randomly give opinions without prior knowledge
  • The location of the throat chakra is in the neck, brain stem area, in particular in the medulla obloganta
  • This makes the throat chakra all about communication and coordination internally (within ourselves) and externally (within our community)
  • The Waterboy movie can be found here: https://amzn.to/2YMPVha
  • Our C1 vertebrae is our atlas which supports our universe, just like the mythological Titan who was tasked with supporting the heavens on his shoulders
  • Our vagus nerve originating at our medulla obloganta is the most important nerve in terms of coordination between our three brains
  • The story of the famous Vagabonds (Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, and John Burroughs) that Tim talks about can be found here: https://youtu.be/ObKE1m3EmdE
  • The most powerful form of communication is listening
  • Toys in the Attic by Aerosmith can be found here: https://amzn.to/2H7TB2i
  • One of the ways to stimulate your throat chakra is through singing, whether it is good singing or bad singing :-)
  • Gargling with coconut oil is another way to stimulate your throat chakra
  • The element associated with the throat chakra is the ether, or space
  • Space is what allows for communication and coordination of the other four elements to take place
  • Mutual listening allows for the creation of common ground between two parties
  • The color is blue and the crystals are aqua marine and blue sapphire
  • Breathwork with retention after inhalation, or exhalation, or both, is a very powerful strengthener for the throat chakra
  • For your Neck Stretches practice go here: https://squareup.com/store/training-courses/item/neck-stretches-teacher-training?square_lead=item_embed
  • In terms of food, think fasting, think honey
  • The planet is Mercury, the day is Wednesday
  • The mantra is ham, pronounced hum
  • Humming is very good for our vagus nerve and so is laughing :-)
