Public speaking is both incredibly rewarding and anxiety-producing. It requires a great deal of preparation but even the most practiced and planned presentation can be derailed by day-of jitters. Even experienced public speakers can require a little extra support on the big day.
Busy public speakers, tune in! Here are five perfect stones for public speakers.
Throat Chakra Stones
The chakra system most commonly associated with crystal healing is comprised of 7 energetic vortexes that maintain healthy energy flow. Healthy energy flow optimizes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. These chakras may be blocked and the energy flow disrupted by environmental stressors, toxic thoughts, limiting beliefs, emotional overload, shadow projections, and other catalysts for disharmonious energies.
When the energy flow is blocked it can create havoc in any aspect of your reality. You may experience physical symptoms like illness, exhaustion, or pain. Or the blockage may manifest in your emotions, leaving you feeling fear, shame, guilt, grief, rage, etc. Mental or spiritual manifestations are also possible and can make life incredibly difficult.
The energy vortex located at our throat is connected to healthy expression. The throat chakra, when functioning properly, directs energy towards expressing yourself effectively and with clarity. When the throat chakra becomes blocked you may feel disconnected from your personal truth, lack confidence and conviction, get a sore throat, or have thyroid issues.
Stress and Anxiety
When you get stressed out, your entire energy system is affected. Fear is the primary blockage found in the root chakra, or first energy vortex, located at the base of the spine. This affects the flow of all of the chakras and can poison your entire system.
Stress is a cause of heart disease, high blood pressure, a variety of digestive issues, shingles and other neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, and mental health issues. This is especially disconcerting when you consider the stress inherent to modern life. Finding successful strategies to cope with stress can not only vastly improve the quality of your life, but it can also extend your life expectancy significantly.
Stress is especially difficult to deal with when you are standing in front of an audience. Public speakers may find that stress robs their voice of its power, makes it very difficult to concentrate and easy to lose their train of thought, and can even cause body betrayal by the stomach. Not only does public speaking produce stress, but it also makes one vulnerable to some of the effects of stress immediately.
