Seven Shrines of the Body: 5. Throat


The fifth shrine is for the throat. The feelings we experience there are often relate to the way we communicate. When we say ‘the words got stuck in my throat’ we locate the experience of being unable to communicate in that particular part of our body.

For me this shrine also explores the network of communication across the globe. tendrils of conversation that stretch from one to another, each one affecting the whole for good or ill.

Here are the images and meditation:


Your words speak creation into being,

And my words wash over others, changing them in ways I cannot know.

In the global tangle of communication may I have the wisdom to know when to speak and when to refrain.

And so may the sounds that I make resonate with your creative joy.
