You’ve heard it a million times, but it’s so important: Your throat chakra is the portal between your brain and your stomach. And like any other organ, your throat chakra can sometimes get out of whack. When this happens, you might start feeling unwell or have problems speaking or swallowing properly. It could also cause problems with your voice or speech. You might not even be aware that it’s causing you any problems! But how do you know if yours is working properly? How can you balance it so that it works to your advantage? And how can you improve its performance? Let’s find out.
What is your throat chakra?
Your throat chakra is the largest of your seven chakras and is directly connected to your voice box or larynx. It is also the one that produces stress hormones in your body, as well as influences your voice. Your throat chakra affects everything which comes out of it, which includes your voice, speech, and your ability to swallow.
Why does your throat chakra matter?
Your throat chakra is the source of your power and authority as a voice of your unique self. Your ability to control it gives you the ability to shape your voice and direct energy in a certain way. When it is out of balance, you become less authoritative, less powerful, and more prone to anxiety and stress.
The first step to healing your throat chakra
To bring your throat chakra back into balance, you must pay attention to its signs and symptoms. If you notice any changes in your voice, speech, or swallowing habits, it is an indication that your chakra is out of balance. Make an effort to examine yourself and pay attention to any changes which may be occurring. If you notice any difficulty in breathing, swallowing, or speaking, or if you think you may be sick, see your doctor immediately.
What to do to balance your throat chakra
The best way to balance the energy levels of your throat chakra is meditation. Meditation gives us a chance to quiet the ego and receive messages from our higher selves and spirit guides. Meditation can help us let go of our unrealistic ideas of being perfect or our feelings of self-doubt. Another way to balance our throat chakra is to always speak our truth. Lying or suppressing our emotions causes our throat chakra to become imbalanced. Shadow work and inner child healing are other great ways to heal and balance our throat chakras. Have you ever been told that children should be seen and not heard or that you talk too much? How did it make you feel? DId it cause you to stop talking and sharing things with people? Being told things like this can make us feel shame and throw our throat chakras out of balance. Journaling and therapy can be a great way to acknowledge that we hold this shame and to start to release it.
Your throat chakra is an important part of your body that works to regulate your breathing, voice, and speech. It’s critical that you pay attention to its functions and balance it so that it works to your advantage. Release the shame you are holding on to and allow yourself to speak the truth. Right now, the world needs our voices of truth to speak loud and clear. Take the necessary actions to balance your throat chakra so that you can share your light with the world.
