Monday Mantra: I speak my truth
A mantra is a word, phrase, or sound you can use in meditation or throughout your day to achieve a state of mind. Today, I’m choosing to discuss a mantra that is connected to your Throat chakra. The mantra of the Throat chakra is “I speak.” And, here we’ll discuss, “I speak my truth.”
To be said as simply as possible, only you are you. Only you have your perspective, your life experiences, your viewpoint. When you choose to hold back your voice, you silence yourself. For whatever reason you withhold your voice, your truth. Is it that you’re afraid of what someone will think of what you say? Or that you’ll be seen as less intelligent? Emotional? Uninformed? Are you concerned that no one cares to hear what you have to say? Or that it won’t make a difference anyway?
I encourage you to work on those self-limiting beliefs. I encourage you to be vulnerable. I am a firm believer in individuals completing a picture. In individual skillsets lending to the greater success. That the picture is incomplete without you. And that perspective is void of pieces without yours. Speak your truth.
In other instances, withholding your truth can result in allowing your boundaries to be crossed. For example, you don’t want to go out tonight. Your friend asks you to go out tonight. Rather than saying you’d rather not, you choose to “not let them down” and say yes instead of what is best for you. Hold your boundaries, speak your truth.
Your authenticity relies on you speaking your truth. You inhibit your authenticity, your light, when you don’t let it shine. A side note, always speak your truth with respect and compassion. No matter our truth, be it feelings, opinions, morals, values, etc., it can and should be spoken with respect and compassion. With that, I want to hear you. I want to hear your truth. Speak your truth and repeat after me, “I speak my truth.”
