Today, I was feeling drained of creativity. I was stuck, as if something was clogging up the place from which words and drawings and songs usually flow freely. And while I sat in frustration, I suddenly needed to do a shoulder stand. Something in me whispered that if I did, I would feel free. I would find my lost creativity.
And you know what? I was right!
The Vishuddha Chakra, the energy center located in the throat, is the birth place of creative expression. When it’s blocked or unbalanced, you might feel a bit dull, drained of light, life and all things expressive. To unblock it, there’s a quick asana sequence that usually does the trick.
