Today we focus on the throat chakra! This energy center is all about getting in touch with your voice and speaking or communicating from a centered place of truth.
THE THROAT CHAKRA
The colour associated with the throat chakra is blue. It is the chakra of verbal communication and expression.
It is located in the center of the throat, and other body associations are the tongue, mouth, teeth, neck and sometimes the shoulders or ears.
Problems that might occur that relate to the throat chakra is chronic sore throat, issues with tonsils, losing your voice, canker sores or cold sores, aching mouth or teeth (clenching), neck pain.
Questions to reflect on when studying your throat chakra are: Do your words hurt, harm or help others? Do people ever tell you ‘you are too opinionated’? Do you find you lack the words you wish to say? Do you hold back from talking to others? How would you rate your communication skills?
After thinking about these questions, what is your personal assessment of your throat chakra? If you need to work on balancing this energy try some of the exercises listed below.
