You are what you speak.

Our throat chakra is a very essential powerful potent tool in every day healthy communication. To build, form, and maintain healthy communication this includes self talk, ones throat chakra must be evaluated. There are ways to observe if your throat chakra is open, closed, or hardly working. There are ways to also strengthen this chakra. 

I want to talk about the importance of our throat chakra. We have such potent energy inside of us. Each one of us posses energy that needs to be shared. Sometimes this is in the form of words or sounds. Expressing yourself in an honest open way is proof that your throat chakra is open, and working to its fullest capacity. When our throat chakra isn’t open we lack confidence, and we lack a voice. We hardly feel seen and to add to that we don’t feel heard at all. This can take life threatening turns in ones way of open communication  depending on their capacity to cope, deal, and process with lifes situations. It also depends on childhood and what ways you were brought up. Were you raised in an environment that promoted and encouraged freedom of expression or was it the total opposite for you? What we experience as children effects our adult lives and it is up to us to take matters into our own awareness. 

I mentioned life threatening turns by way of communication because most of the time we don’t realize that we are practicing old and unhealthy ways of communication. Life threatening meaning suffering that we are in fact self inflicting but not consciously aware of it. Wouldn’t you like to communicate openly at your job? Wouldn’t you like to let your boss or manager know what things around the office could use improvement or attention? Wouldn’t you like to have an open “hard” conversation with one of your family members with ease and grace? If this is something that you are interested in continue reading. 


Ask yourself three questions; Am I communicating honestly, openly, and from a place of love? When you can answer yes to all three of the questions your throat chakra is balanced. You’re able to take situations that might be deemed as tough to other people and breeze right through the conversation. You’re able to take charge and give and receive. When you speak from a place of love there are areas of opportunities for growth. When you speak from a place of honesty your words become impeccable and sound. This is a very universal place to be, a place of resilience. Knowing that even when it “hurts” your words are all that you have to honor you by and they must be honest ones.  Speaking openly helps to let others know where you stand and your healthy boundaries. Openly speaking helps to maintain the atmosphere, there are no inferences here on truths. 

If you are in a situation that doesn’t allow you to speak up, the effects can close your throat chakra. If you are in situations that quiet your voice and don’t allow you to speak up, this most definitely can cause your throat chakra to shut down and become stagnant. When dealing with too many situations that don’t allow you to speak your voice becomes weak. Our voice is a muscle. Muscles have to be exercised and need to flexed and maintained.
