The 5th Chakra, or Throat Chakra, is found in the throat. In the general sense, it’s associated with the communication. How many times communication skills is often an issue in any type of relationships?

The throat chakra (also known as Vishuddha) is responsible also for self-expression, and the ability to speak your truth.It’s the energy center through which you not only communicate or express your truth but also the highest truth. Being the communication center of the body, it controls your ability not only to speak your truth openly and purely but also your ability to understand your needs and desires and being able to communicate them.

When your Throat Chakra is off-balance or blocked, you may experience negative symptoms related to communication and self-expression

This chakra is the seat of self-expression and can be viewed as a crossroads of the heart and the head — serving as a mediator between emotions and thoughts. The more balanced your fifth chakra is, the more freely and effortlessly it is for you to express yourself in a pure way.

The imbalance of your Throat Chakra, as well as blockages, manifests itself in excessive talking, arrogance, dishonesty, gossiping, poor listening, timidity, fear, and manipulative behaviour.

Let's find out now what causes Throat Chakra blockage?

If you lack confidence in expressing your feelings, ideas and thoughts, your Throat Chakra may be blocked. That is when you likely experience frustration when it comes to expressing your feelings. This often means not being able to find the correct words, particularly when you are scared of losing something or someone.

Is your throat chakra out of balance or blocked? How does it manifest in my daily life?

These questions will help you gain total clarity on the state of your fifth chakra:

  1. Am I talkative?
  2. Am I manipulative in the words I use?
  3. Do I gossip?
  4. Do I listen to others with the intention to understand and genuine interest or do I listen poorly?
  5. Am I honest with other people in general?
  6. Am I honest about my own mistakes and do I openly admit my mistakes and wrongdoings before others?
  7. Do I say little lies or unnecessary exaggerations?
  8. Do I speak with the power?
  9. Do I speak my truth without the fear of being ridiculed?
  10. Do I easily and freely express my thoughts, feelings, and emotions?

Reflect on these questions in your journal, acknowledge your patterns when it comes to self-expression and communication with the external world, and write down your intention to heal it.
