The Throat Chakra

We are working our way up and are now at the 5th chakra, the throat chakra. The Sanskrit name is Vishuddha, the color is blue, and it's located at the front, base of your neck. It is your main area for communication, expression, speaking your truth, and singing. I'm not a great singer but that doesn't stop me! The mantra sound is ham but sounds like hum. It's element is space or the Akasha. When you feel like it's blocked, you may not have the nerve to speak out on an issue or can't communicate freely on your needs. Physical manifestations of having a blocked throat chakra can be sore throat, laryngitis, thyroid issues, sinus/ear infections, gum disease, and even shoulder muscle pain. Sometimes you talk too much or use colorful language(guilty!). You may actually get that lump in your throat!

How to help this chakra stay open? You can wear blue, think about beautiful, blue skies, or visualize blue in meditation. You can eat blueberries and blackberries. Drink tea with honey when you have a sore throat. You can work with blue crystals such as Amazonite, Blue Chalcedony, Blue Lace Agate, or Sodalite. Good essential oils to diffuse are peppermint, lavender, Roman chamomile, eucalyptus, and sage. Some good affirmations to use:

I express my thoughts clearly and concisely.

I am not afraid to express my truth.

I listen as well as I speak.

I comfortably speak my mind.

Let's not forget a great way to open your throat....the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear! I know it's almost spring but sing all year!! I hope you enjoyed this lesson, feel free to book a full Reiki session with me to unblock all of your chakras. Thanks for reading and shine on!
