    What is the Throat Chakra?

    The Throat Chakra is all about communication. Traditionally, communication is associated with speech and hearing. In actuality, it involves the entire brain because you must process the information that comes in and form cognitive thoughts that can be expressed when you give out information.

    Although the Throat Chakra is the center point of communication, it affects the entire body. Besides speech, you also express yourselves through your hand gestures, facial movements, body postures and more. In this age of email and texting technology, the written (typed) word is becoming one of the most common forms of communicating with others.

    All of this being said, it is important to keep your Throat Chakra open so that you can understand and express yourself correctly. Thankfully, we have ways you can keep your Throat Chakra balanced with healing crystals and communicative methods. 

    What Color is your Throat Chakra?

    The Throat Chakra is associated with light blue and turquoise colors.

    Throat Chakra Blockages

    One of the biggest problems with relationships is misunderstanding. Just because you say something out loud, does not mean the receiver has interpreted it the way that you intended. This is even trickier via chat and email because the receiver cannot see your body movements nor hear the tone of your voice. These visual and auditory cues usually help to clarify intent.

    Miscommunication happens often when the 5th Chakra is not fully open, so words and messages can become skewed.

    Another issue you may face is an unhealthy way of expressing yourself. We all know about the non-accusatory techniques involving "I feel..." statements. We may be aware that it is best to avoid blame when working through a problem, but how many of us actually put it into practice?

    When emotions are involved, it's easy to engage in negative and counterproductive fighting. In an angry state of mind, it's also easier to misinterpret others and become defensive. Having a balanced Throat Chakra and healthy flow of energy throughout the body helps you to remain calm, centered and rational. In this balanced state, you can avoid the blame game, over-dramatics and nasty insults. 

    If the Throat Chakra is totally blocked, you may find yourself completely stifled and unable to connect with others at all. The most unhealthy thing you can do is to bottle up negative emotions and feelings. These feelings will eventually become outbursts of violent or irrational behavior, or can lead to depression. 

    Obviously, a healthy Throat Chakra is crucial in connecting you with others, in forming positive relationships and maintaining our own well-being.

    There are many ways to keep your Throat Chakra open. Here are some ideas to keep you in a balanced state:

    • Use Throat Chakra crystals to make a crystal grid and lie in a balancing energy net. 

    • Use Throat Chakra crystals to cleanse your space and balance the energies for your throat health. 

    • Meditate on the Throat chakra vortex, visualizing it strong and open. 

    • Have a Reiki practitioner use their healing energies to unblock your Throat Chakra. 

    • Surround yourself with world of music: singing, listening, playing musical instruments, joining a drum circle, attending a musical, etc. 

    • Attend or conduct a sound bath where the focus is on the Throat Chakra. 

    • Practice communication: have a meaningful conversation, write letters, give a speech, etc. 

    • Wear a Throat Chakra stone on a necklace to ensure you get the energy you need all day long.

    It becomes harder when we are buried in the computer and cell phone all day long, but connecting with real people (and pets!) is irreplaceable. It is the meaning of life, and the greatest joy of living.

    Sheila's Personal Experiences with the Throat Chakra

    Along with financial frustrations (which I used abundance crystals for), I have had a long struggle with balancing my Throat Chakra.
