We’ve made it past the heart gateway! Now we are on to the three chakras that represent the spiritual. First is the throat chakra (Vishuddha in Sanskrit) which guides us with communicating our truth out to the world!
All About the Throat
The throat chakra is located at our neck and is associated with the color blue. It allows us to express our emotions and thoughts.
It is important to balance our throat chakra because it allows us to take our expression (sacral chakra) to the next level. With a balanced throat chakra, we are able to project ourselves to the world in our most authentic way.
Signs of Imbalance
Here are signs that your throat chakra may be imbalanced:
- Struggle to verbalize thoughts
- Hard to express emotions
- Actions don’t align with words
- Struggle to have own voice
- Anxious in conversations
- Keep lots of secrets from others (from fear of acceptance)
- Enter relationships that don’t allow you to have a voice of your own
