6. Your Seven Energy Center (6 to 10) Lesson 6
The Throat Energy Center
Overview of Lesson 6 for Children Ages 6 to 10
This lesson is going to introduce children to the energy center at the throat, the blue chakra.
- The key word for the throat center is power.
- The way God created was to speak the command, “Let there be light!”
- We decide every minute of every day, how to use God’s
- When we speak, our words carry energy and they create feelings and ideas around us.
- When there is dark, heavy energy around us and inside of us, we can begin to say special prayers that burn up the dark energy. They are called decrees.
- The name of God is I AM That I AM – when we say I AM, it really means, God in me is.

Let’s look at the chart of your energy centers. Do you remember that in the last lesson we talked about the heart energy center? We were all going to try to do things that are loving and kind each day. Do you have anything you would like to share that was loving and kind? (Be prepared to share something yourself – that you did or saw your child do.)
Now we are going to look at the next energy center, the throat center. It is located in your body above the heart in the throat area.
Where is it? (Throat)
What color is it? (Blue)
How many petals does it have? (16)
Each of your energy centers has a special key word that tells what it is for. The key word for the throat is POWER. That makes sense because a lot of our power and energy comes from what we say.
In the Bible there is a wonderful story of how God created the world. He began by speaking the words, “Let there be light!” Lets say these words together loudly, with strength and power. The next words of the story are: “And there was light!” So the way God created was to speak the command. He used his voice, which is right here, at your throat center. God took his great power and to create, he released it through his throat energy center, through the spoken word.
Activity 1: Feel the vibration of your voice.
Lets say the Indian word Om. It is a word that we can continue for a long time. While we say it, put your hand on your throat so you can feel the vibration and the power coming from your throat.
Sanskrit letters for Om
Activity 2: How the human voice affects water
There is a Japanese man who has been doing some amazing work with water. His name is Masaru Emoto. There are books in the library about his work and there are websites where you can see pictures showing how words affect water.
Mr. Emoto found out that the power sound from the throat makes beautifulpatterns that resemble snowflakes when it is harmonious and kind. It makes ugly and confused patterns when it is discordant.
Using the name of God the story of Moses
The word sword has a special meaning. The first letter, the “s” stands for sacred, so when you put it together, you have sword = sacred word.
The knights of old used swords. Stories of the angels show that they also use swords – or the sacred word to help people. Here is a picture of Archangel Michael, the archangel of power. His color is blue, just like the throat energy center. You can see that he is shown with a sword that represents his use of God’s holy word with the power of God from his throat.
Here is a special prayer that you can say to ask him to help you.
Lord Michael before, Lord Michael behind, Lord Michael to the right,
Lord Michael to the left, Lord Michael above, Lord Michael below,
Lord Michael, Lord Michael, wherever I go! I AM his love protecting
When we give this prayer, we can pretend we are taking the light from our heart and using it to point in each direction as our sword – sacred word – as we say the prayer. When we get to the part, Lord Michael, Lord Michael, wherever I go, we trace a huge circle in front of us. As we say, I AM his love protecting here (3X), we can clap.
Activity 3: Making a Sword
You can make a sword and use it when you give your decrees and prayers as described here.
Materials to make a sword:
- 1 sheet of foam core board at least 18” long, (available at
- craft stores)
- Knife (for adult to cut foam core)
- Heavy duty aluminum foil
- Scotch tape
- Crayons or paints to color handle of sword
Directions: To make the sword, cut out the blade shape from the foam core board, 18” to 20” long, 3 inches across at the bottom and 1″ at the rounded tip. Cut two identical handle shapes. Attach to the two sides of the end of the sword. Color in the handle, decorate it as desired. Wrap aluminum foil around the blade and tape it in place.
A man named C.W. Leadbeater could see peoples thoughts in their aura and wrote about what he saw. “Each word as it is uttered makes a little form … just as a thought does …” He says that the word hate for example, “produces a horrible form, so much so that, having seen its shape, I never use the word.”
Loving words, on the other hand, form beautiful, symmetrical shapes that make us feel comfortable and joyful. Mr. Leadbeater explains that the forms of the words and thoughts we say and think are all around us and we can feel one anothers energy when we are around them.
God has given you a voice, so that you use the power of God that he has given us. Every time we open our mouths to speak, we are making a choice – to use our words to help or to harm life. Both the Buddha and Jesus Christ taught about using our voices properly.
Gautama Buddha taught about right speech. This is using speech to help and support and not to gossip or condemn. He tells us that we should give up harsh language and rudeness, always speaking words that are soothing to the ear and going straight to the heart.
Jesus said that by our words we are justified or we are judged. When we understand that words come from the power center of the throat in our body, we understand how powerful they can be. Remember that every minute of every day, we have Gods energy and we get to decide how to use it. Who decides how to use Gods energy through us? You do!
Activity 4: When we misuse God's energy through our throat
When we use God’s energy to say unkind, hurtful things, if we are mad or have our feelings hurt, it creates dark, heavy energy and ugly forms.
Whenever that happens, we can begin to say special prayers that use God’s energy to change the dark energy into light. Would you like to learn one of these prayers? It is very simple and goes like this:
I am a being of violet fire,
I am the purity God desires.
Close your eyes and see if you can see a fire burning in your heart and see it turning brilliant violet.
This is the color of forgiveness and it is the color that changes things from darkness to light. You can do this little prayer any time when you feel things are not quite right and you feel upset or angry or afraid.
Tips for Controlling Energy
1. If you are in a situation where someone is saying something that you do not like and you are tempted to lash out with your words, try staying silent until you can think about what to say.
a. Take a deep breath
b. Count to nine
c. Then speak.
You cannot control what other people say, but you CAN be in charge of your own energy.
2. Try being silent sometimes. Don’t waste time in chattering when you can find something constructive to do. Chattering all the time drains you of power and energy.
3. When you do speak, speak the truth and make sure your facts are accurate. The great teacher of China, Confucius, taught that being honest and supporting honest people can raise up an entire nation.
Using the name of God the story of Moses
Do you know the story of Moses and the burning bush? Moses lived thousands of years ago and he loved God very much. His people, the Israelites, were slaves of the Egyptians, and had to work all the time. Moses was born in Israel, but to keep him safe at a time when the Egyptian soldiers were killing peoples boy children, his mother had put him in a basket on the river and the daughter of the great Egyptian king (called the pharaoh) found him and raised him.
When Moses grew up and became a man, he went one day up the mountain, where he thought he could pray to God better. When he got to the top of the mountain, he saw a bush burning, but it was very strange, because it was not burning up, like wood usually burns in a fire. Suddenly, out of the bush he heard a voice, calling him. “Moses, Moses.” Moses answered, “Here am I.”
God told him to take off his shoes, because the land where he stood was holy ground. Then God said, “I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” Moses was afraid and turned away, afraid to look upon God’s face.
God told him he had heard the cries of children and knew their sorrow. He told Moses he had come to deliver his people and to lead them to a land of milk and honey. Then he told Moses that he would send him Moses to pharaoh (the Egyptian king) to free the people.
Moses asked God, “When I come unto the Children of Israel, and tell them the God of your fathers hath sent me and they ask me what is thy name, what shall I say?”
God said to Moses, “I AM That I AM … this is my name forever.” Moses was obedient to God. He went to free his people, telling the Egyptian pharaoh that God, the Mighty I AM That I AM had sent him.
Whenever you say I AM it really means “God in me is.” We learned in the first lesson of our studies of the seven energy centers that we have a great God Presence high above us, our I AM Presence, waiting every moment of every day to give us more spiritual light and energy. This name, I AM That I Am, that was recorded in the Bible, is the name of God in us which we call the I AM Presence.
Chart of Your Divine Self
The top portion of this chart, surrounded by the rings of color is your Mighty I AM Presence. In the middle of the chart is your Beloved Holy Christ Self, and the lower figure is you in your tube of light and the violet flame.
We can say Gods name, I AM THAT I AM, as a prayer that we repeat over and over as many times as we want. You may want to close your eyes and see bright white light streaming down from your I AM Presence and feel Gods love for you. Lets try it:
I AM That I AM
(Give this mantra in multiples of three; 3, 9 or 12 times.)
Activity 5: Color Your Throat Energy Center
Coloring sheet of throat energy center to color and mount on your body outline.
Activity 6: Question Cards
Here are some questions for a quiz on the energy centers. They are designed so you can cut them out and begin to build a deck of question cards. You may want to print them and mount them on 3” x 5” index cards for long-term use. As you study each energy center, add the new cards to your deck. It gets more fun!
Children love to be quizzed, because they love to show you that they know the answers. Fun repetition of simple games leads to mastery of knowledge. If your child is a reader, let him ask you the questions first.
This is a powerful way to review the facts before he takes his turn.
