The throat chakra is one of the seven main chakras in your body. It is part of the space element and is the color of blue. It has the mantra sound “hum.”
This is the fifth chakra and is a place that helps you to communicate and to speak the truth. You can chant, sing, and talk with this chakra. This helps you to share what you are feeling.
This is the area of the throat and has to do with the neck, tongue, jaw, larynx, your vocal cords, thyroid gland and parathyroid. This is where you can even hear things with your ears.
The word in the Sanskrit for the throat chakra is Vishuddha which means to be pure. This means that you speak the truth, and you say what is in your heart. This is innocent speaking and helps you to reach a higher level in your being.
If you have ailments in the throat chakra, it can have to do with your thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, the neck or more. This can be a cold, a hearing problem, or a speech problem. When you have these problems, they can bring sadness, judgement, anger and sometimes even depression.
Reaching the Next Level
There is energy in your throat chakra just like the other chakras. The energy there helps you to communicate with others and helps you to make soundwaves that can be picked up all over the world in various ways.
You can present your voice through a phone call or on a radio or even a video without ever leaving where you are.
We communicate in different ways and this can be through how we express ourselves, our words, voices, and body language. These are vibrations that we have that help us to share sound.
Words can heal or hurt others. When you speak the truth to yourself and others, it helps you to see if you are healthy and healed. When you are able to talk about forgiveness and love, you are powerful.
Tell yourself to be healthy and use words of healing. This can help you to be happy and to be healthy.
You can chant the world HUM over and over and it will raise your vibrational frequencies. This will help you to reach your higher purpose and to keep you healthy and strong.
There is healing power in the throat chakra and it can help you to reach your inner and outer being. You can communicate with the divine world and you can communicate with others. This can help you to reach your life path.
There are times where your throat chakra might not be balanced. When this happens, it will cause you to talk and never listen. It will cause you to be nervous and to be afraid of being silent.
This imbalance might also cause you to say mean things to others or to put people down. You might be critical and hurtful to others or scream or yell.
Speech problems are disorders that can be frustrating because it can cause you to feel that you cannot say what you want to say. This can be a blockage in your chakra.
Not able to communicate or to misunderstand people is also a throat chakra blockage. This can be someone that is not listening too.
Healing the Throat Chakra
You can heal your throat chakra by speaking the truth and by saying, “I can speak the truth always.” You have to use your mouth, jaw, and tongue to talk. You can also make sure that you are eating good foods and that you are doing things such as singing and speaking to strengthen your voice.
Dry mouth can happen when you drink too much caffeine or drink alcohol. You need to decrease the dry foods and eat things such as fruit and vegetables. Swish with a mouthwash or sesame oil each day so that you can lubricate your mouth.
Chanting or Singing
If you say positive mantras or affirmations, you can help your throat chakra to balance and heal. This can help you to strengthen your chakras and to be strong.
Move your neck and head and get away from your electronics sometimes. Take time to heal and to move your body back and forth.
Move your head in a circle and keep your back straight. Move your head left and right and keep your neck strong. Hold your chin to your chest and then release it.
There are some yoga poses that you can do to heal your throat chakra.
This is also called ocean breath and it is a way to tone your throat and to keep your nerves strong. You can breathe and it will give your body heat and cause you to feel better.
Breathe like you are fogging your glasses and then exhale with the word ha. Close your lips and do the same thing. Inhale and exhale the word ha. Let your belly breathe as you inhale and exhale. This will help to get rid of stress.
This is a breathing activity that looks silly, but it can tone your mouth and jaw. It can also clear your lungs. Sit on your heels and your knees are out wide. Put your hands on the floor in front of you and take a deep breath through your nose.
When you exhale, open your mouth, and stick out your tongue and say ha. Pretend that you are a lion and put your claws out to get rid of negative energies.
Lay on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the floor. Put your feet hip apart and put your arms beside you with your palms on the ground. Put your pelvis up and put your hands together under your pelvis. Lift as high as you can.
Look at the wall and keep your head still. Hold this and breathe 10 times. Lower yourself and put your palms back on the floor.
Put your blanket under your neck and rest your arms beside you. Bend your knees and put your feet on the floor. Put your hands down to lift your legs and when they are straight, put them over your head and put your toes on the floor over your head.
Your body will be folded in half. Leave your arms on the floor to support you.
Healing the Emotions
Some people have a hard time speaking the truth. Telling the truth can be hard and when you have things in your heart that are holding you back, your soul cannot speak. You have to give yourself the ability and authority to say the truth.
As your day goes on, pay attention to what you are saying. Is this how you are really feeling. Do not judge yourself but pay attention to if you are stretching the truth or being honest. Are you doing things to mislead others?
Figure out what you are saying and why. Do not lie about things such as your weight. Just tell them the truth no matter what it is.
Speaking the truth means you are being mindful, and you are doing things to strengthen your throat chakra. You can keep your mind, body, and soul clear by not being deceptive. The more you are deceptive, the harder it is to speak the truth.
Speaking the truth doesn’t mean that you have to tell everyone everything. Just tell them you don’t want to tell them or talk about it. This is not being dishonest but is being very honest with yourself and others.
If you are asked if you like something and you don’t, just talk about something else so that you don’t hurt someone else’s feelings.
As you go through your day, pay attention to how you are talking and what you are saying. See if you are lining up your words with what is true.
Healing the Spirit
When you are aware of how you are answering things and acting, you can know if you are speaking the truth. Notice how words have meanings and find out how to heal yourself and your chakras.
Let the truths come into place and let yourself go on a journey where you are being truthful and having a full life.
Look at the color blue which is associated with the throat chakra. Pay attention to speaking truth and use a turquoise or a blue stone that you can wear or keep on your body somewhere. Some great stones are the Blue Kyanite or the Blue iolite. These stones can help your energy to heal and also open up your psychic giftings.
