How to Activate the Throat Chakra. Teachings of a Giraffe.
Animals make wonderful teachers once we know how to tap into their energies. Mind, body & spirit. How the Giraffe thinks (approaches life), the physical adaptations & its’ essence/soul provides us humans a key of wisdom. A fresh energetic perspective for the following Intentions.
A Giraffes neck is approximately 1.8m (6 feet) long. The largest Throat Chakra on the planet! This mammals neck is comprised of 7 vertebrates, exactly the same as a human. Giraffe’s are excellent communicators. Coincidence? Zebras, Rhinos & many other animals of the African savanna grasslands prefer to hang close to Giraffes, with great respect, because when danger approaches a Giraffe is the 1st to know. If a herd of Giraffes run in fear, instinctually all other animal herds begin to run as well. The view from the top helps! They possess a unique vocalization that helps the herd communicate. It’s infrasonic, below human audible range. Around the same range as earthquakes, meteorites & Elephants.
Key: Speak your truth, it’s the key to individuality.
It takes a special heart to pump blood all the way to the brain of a Giraffe. This heart is over 60cm (nearly 2 feet long) & weighs over 11kg (around 25 lbs)! A heart this big pumps over 70L (nearly 16 gallons) of blood every single minute. One of the strongest Heart Chakras of all animals.
Giraffes engage with other animals in a unique way. In conjunction of their massive heart & communications skills they draw a unique tribe of other species around them. Lots of animals on the Savanna want to hang with the Giraffe. Even one of their few predators (lions, crocodiles, humans). Lions & giraffes mingle together without a problem until hunger strikes the Lion. The Giraffe instinctually knows when a Lion stomach begins to rumble & starts to distant the herd. Camouflaged naturally, the Giraffes moves in tighter groups during the Lions hunger period. If a Lioness creeps a little too close for comfort, a swift karate chop to the head from a Giraffes front leg will quickly kill her.
Build your Tribe. Open your Heart. Trust your Intuition. Speak your Mind.
Those that need to hear you… Will.
