Your Throat Chakra: What Does it Need?

Your Throat Chakra: What Does it Need?

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. –Mother Teresa

The throat chakra is a transmitter of truth, freedom, and clarity. It is located in the throat and neck region of the body and extends upward to include the lower region of the brain or cortex. This area of the physical body holds the communication center, and the gateway to inner and outer worlds. What does your Throat Chakra need so you can fully express who you are?

Singing, chanting, acting, and toning are all activities that vibrate from the Throat Chakra. Holding tension in the Throat Chakra is often due to lack of support in the early years regarding self-expression and freedom of speech. With a healed and healthy Throat Chakra, one’s words are kind, thoughtful, clear, and truthful. The voice is strong and alive with many tones of expression. Usually there is ease with writing, speaking, and sharing thoughts with others. A healthy Throat Chakra cannot sustain lies, coercion, or manipulation.

Attributes of the Throat Chakra:
Function: Communication, creativity, and connection
Color: Blue
Musical Note: A
Healing Flower: Morning glory
Animal Totems: Hawk, whale, and hummingbird
Foods: Fruits
Herb: Frankincense
Gemstone: Turquoise

Through the Throat Chakra one may speak long-held truths of past hurts and, in the process, find much inner peace and a sense of personal freedom. In this way, the throat is a gateway between the mind and body.

I am the messenger.
I speak the sweet whispers of the heart.
I sing my song.
I speak my truth with clarity and courage.
I am the essence of sound vibration.

I was once advised to wear a blue necklace, but I don't remember where I put it. :-(
