My Silence Will Not Protect Me

The throat chakra is home to our communication—both speaking and listening—as well as self-expression. When this is blocked we may find it hard to speak our truths, often out of fear. Many times we don’t even realize what our truths are.

When I met photographer MiKed, I shared my personal journey towards unblocking my throat chakra. He then created these photos of me based on his interpretation of my story, thus helping me say things I lacked words to describe. You can find a relating story on Medium.

I’ve never been one to let people see me weak. If I’m going to suffer, let me do so, silently and in hiding, like an animal retreating to lick its wounds.

—Ena Dahl
Your silences will not protect you…. What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? We have been socialized to respect fear more than our own need for language.
—Audre Lorde
