The Throat Chakra is very important and you should work regularly to make sure it’s healthy and in proper working order.
This bodily energy center or is located in the center of your neck and it represents your ability to communicate honestly and with trust and compassion. It’s also referred to as the 5th Chakra or Vishuddha in Sanskrit.
You’ll know if your throat chakra is out of balance when you’re having difficulty expressing yourself. Here are some specific indicators that your throat chakra needs a healing boost of crystal energy:
- You feel as though you can’t express your truth and be yourself
- You’re often afraid to say what’s on your mind, or you “can’t find the right words”
- You have a hard time listening to or paying attention to others during conversations
- Your creative expression feels stifled
- Your inner dialogue is muddled, confused, or persistently negative
- You have a hard time arriving on time, or you often forget important dates
- Another function of the throat chakra is to connect you to spirit
- You feel a lack of self-confidence, leading toward feelings of insecurity and introversion
On the other hand, a throat chakra imbalance can also mean talking too much, gossiping, or not being able to keep secrets.
Aligning your throat chakra will also help the flow between your lower chakras and your upper chakras, make it easier for you to positively express yourself.
The 5th Chakra vibrates at a frequency that corresponds with the color blue. It’s no wonder then, that the healing crystals and gems for this chakra are either blue or include shades of blue.
