We’re in an energy current with a strong activating flow that will support expansion, creative endeavors, and entrepreneurship.
Transformation is happening fast.
However, transformation changes our identity. And identity changes can bring up all sorts of traumas, fears, and anxieties.
Many of us have strong need for approval and validation. We seek approval so that we can feel that we belong. There is, of course, never a set bar for the amount of approval that we must feel to belong, therefore we are always striving for approval.
In this energy flow, we also have the opportunity to untether. To untether some of the old stories that originally came from others that help us remain small. But it is rarely that others or their stories actually keep us small. More commonly, we proactively try to remain in the box that we think others wish us to remain in. It is us implementing our perception of their expectations that keep us small.
It is our own mind games.
Sometimes the way forward is through.
Our throat chakra is often our sticking point to identity changes. To try to keep us safe, our voice constricts to slow us down and keep our identity from changing.
Beginning to express ourselves is key. Whether it be our verbal spoken voice, our written voice, the way we present ourselves, or the choices we make, we must allow ourselves to express what is in our heart and soul.
For many, there are old wounds, new traumas, and systemic pressures around our voice. Many who have been told through words or actions that their voice didn’t matter. That their voice didn’t need to be heard. That their voice should be quiet.
These are lies.
Your voice has important things to say. Your voice is worthy to be heard.
Maybe you begin by writing down your words and reading them aloud.
Maybe you begin by speaking your words while alone in your car.
Maybe you begin by sketching those images running in your head.
The more we begin to express who we are, the more our identity becomes real to us.
The the more real our identity feels (the more comfortable we are in our skin), the easier it is to untether from old stories, patterns, and what we think are the expectations of others.
‘What you seek, is seeking you'*. Your becoming is seeking you and you are seeking to become.
But becoming does not come about simply through seeking. We have to allow our voice and throat chakra to express our emerging identity.
*Quote from Rumi
