The Throat Chakra

The Throat Chakra, or Vishuddha, is about speaking one’s truth. Obviously, Vishuddhais located at the base of our neck, and affects the proper functioning of our vocal cords and our thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is associated with hormone production that is key to physical growth and maturation. Spiritually, that growth is that of our consciousness and wisdom. The Throat Chakra incites us to live ideally, be surrounded by beauty, expressiveness, through our self-expression and ability to make our feeling and emotions our reality. It is the center of our capacity to community.

Lies, falsehoods, and half-truths imbalance our throat chakra. Actions that violate both our own spirit and those of others affect our bodies as much as our minds. However, choosing to repress our feelings through silence also manifests itself in an imbalance. Unexpressed thoughts and emotions obstruct the throat chakra. Pointing again to the mind-body connection, there’s a reason why we feel a lump in our throat or our vocal cords seemingly closing off when we are uncertain or afraid.
However, any artistic expression is a huge benefit to Vishuddha.  I’ve never been that aware of my throat chakra. However, now I ask myself what my inner truth actually is? I have always been very assured in my values and who I really am. I always hope that I am the person on the outside that I am on the inside. It’s something I’ve been conscious of for a long long time and that I’ve worked on for years. In being true to myself and voicing it to others more and more, I have to say that I’ve never been more comfortable than I am with myself until the past few years. One should always be humbly proud of who they are, and what they have become.
To maintain the health of your throat chakra, always be open, receptive, and humble. Having an open throat chakra is not just our ability to express ourselves but to listen to the truths others seek to share with us. For example, an overactive throat chakra might be obvious in our desire to control the consciousness of other peoples lives. A deficient throat chakra is evident if you are overly egotistic or prejudiced, or if you perceive the world as hostile, expecting to be humiliated, used, or judged by others rather than loved and nourished.
