Destiny is one of the energetic goal of the fifth (throat) chakra, and it is a BIG DEAL, but not like you think. It’s not a person, place or thing. In fantasy literature, destiny is often wrapped in fatalism – as in you can’t avoid your destiny. But, the truth is you can avoid your destiny. And frankly, I do it regularly.
The avoidance is often sub-conscious. I get moments of amnesia about how I’m supposed to show up – in my work, my relationships, my spiritual practice. In those moments (which sometimes last weeks or months) I am not communicating my soul-purpose in the world – in other words my destiny.
I recently had a relapse of this nature. I said “yes” to too many things that might “help” me make more money in my business, but actually diverted my time, energy and attention away from my primary focus – away from my soul purpose – away from my destiny.
Over the course of several months, I’ve been getting some pretty big messages from both my earth guides and my spiritual guides about my wayward path, but I was ignoring them (eye roll). Now I’ve got a bit of a mess to clean up as I back out of some of these obligations, which will no doubt disappoint some people. I hate disappointing others (a carry over from childhood). But, I’m still going to do it. Because I know those projects are not a part of my destiny at this time.
I believe destiny is a journey, not a destination. What is a part of your destiny one year, may change the next. As you grow as a soul, what is an authentic part of your soul-purpose will shift. There’s plenty of people out there willing to tell you where your destiny lies. The hardest part is paying attention to your guides (inner and outer) to feel what resonates with you in your current phase of life.
Here are some ways you can strengthen your fifth (throat) chakra energy so you can manifest your destiny.
- Practice speaking your truth. Notice how your throat feels when you do and when you don’t
- Sing more
- Journal about your soul-purpose
- Do inner child work and allow your child to speak either in writing or to someone
- Say affirmations – I speak my truth. I am comfortable expressing my soul-purpose. I am fulfilling my destiny
- Wear or diffuse spearmint essential oil – the oil of clarity of thought and communication
Life is a journey – there is no “getting there”. No matter where you currently are in your journey, you can always find the right road to your destiny.
