Profile Summary Throat Centre

In terms of genetic structure, this is one of the most difficult Centers in your rave chart. It is not a motor, does not exert pressure, and has no awareness. However, he operates with many unique tools of self-expression: speech, writing and deeds.

The Throat Center is responsible for the way you express yourself and communicate with the world. And since by itself it is not able to do anything, its work depends on the presence and nature of its connections with other centers and external conditioning.

Defined Throat Center
People with a defined Throat Center manifest themselves in the world in a fixed way, which depends on the type of connection of this Center with others (only the Head and Root Centers do not have access to the Throat). This determines exactly how a person will act, speak or express himself. A person with a defined Throat is constant in his verbal temperament and rate of speech. He is able to understand and convince both others and himself. It encourages other people to speak, but it needs to be careful that people don't use it as an opportunity to speak out.
Undefined Throat Center
The owner of an undefined Throat Center from birth worries about whether he will be able to say something, do something or express himself. Often it is difficult for him to find words and express his thoughts clearly. However, when in the company of someone with a defined Throat Center, such a person tries to attract attention by becoming surprisingly talkative and active, which sometimes irritates or confuses others and himself. Being conscious, such a person may resist pressure to express himself in this way and calmly wait to be asked or invited to a conversation. Then he will be able to say something really important and significant. People with an undefined Throat Center have a different way of speaking depending on who they are talking to. They are perfectly able to adopt speech patterns and speak like a person in their aura.
Open Throat center
The owners of a fully open Throat Center have no idea what to say. In incorrectness, this leads to the fact that they do not stop talking for a minute, or others speak for them. When living their Design correctly, they allow themselves to wait for an invitation to a conversation or activity, and trust what they want to do or say at a particular moment in time. A person with an open Throat Center is able to master an infinite number of tools for self-expression and speech. Since he does not have a specific Gate in this Center, he can reflect any energy he encounters and learn from it. Another bonus of the correct operation of such a Center is the ability to determine which of the surrounding people is telling the truth and who is not.
Do not forget that the consequences and nature of the conditioning of your indefinite or open Centers by the people around you and planetary transits directly depend on the correctness of your living your Design!
Keep in mind that the consequences and nature of the conditioning of your undefined or open Centres by the people around you and planetary transits directly depend on the correctness of your living your Design!
