Do you feel that you have a problem with COMMUNICATION, EXPRESSING YOURSELF or SPEAKING YOUR MIND? Vishuddha means “to purify”. The throat chakra is an important bridge from the heart chakra because it takes us from one side of the river of our life (our body), to the other side, into spiritual realms. Our throat chakra is the place where we can speak or sing our love for: our partner, our world, our god/s, our goddess. Conversely, we can use our voice to hurt or slander, speaking bitter words that destroy and turn the energies of this chakra inward. We cannot receive positive energies in this chakra unless we speak in good words. An energy imbalance in the throat chakra will present as EAR, NOSE, THROAT AND RESPIRATORY problems in the physical body. So, when there is a discomfort there, the throat chakra is the first place to give healing. The color associated with this chakra is TURQUOISE. It is located between the collar bone and larynx in the neck. When this chakra is blocked or malfunctioning, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually you will experience, insecurity, dependency, communication issues, inability to think clearly, inability to express yourself and respiratory issues.
Physically, Vishuddha is associated with the production of thyroid balancing horomones. These are linked mainly to the way we develop: this chakra receives messages from higher chakras saying, “this is the rate at which your body will grow.” Throughout our lives, thyroid and parathyroid glands in the neck keep a variety of body functions going, including the repair of body cells, blood calcium and phosphate levels. Imbalances that may BENEFIT FROM THROAT CHAKRA HEALING are: GRAVES DISEASE, HYPOTHYROIDISM & GOITER, HYPERTHYROIDISM, HYPERPARATHYROIDISM, HYPOPARATHYROIDISM, EXHAUSTION, DIGESTIVE & WEIGHT PROBLEMS, SORE THROATS, NECK PAIN, PAIN IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD.
A deficiency of energy (hypo.) in this chakra can make us feel afraid, timid, manipulative and afraid of sex. An excess of energy (hyper) in this chakra can bring a dogmatic nature, arrogance, self-righteousness, or makes us excessive talkers. Such people are likely to be sexually dominant and forceful. A simple way to clear your throat chakra on a daily basis is to tap the throat area 3 times.
Emotionally, the throat chakra has to do with our inner voice (our strengths and weaknesses) and self expression; if we are feeling depressed, we need to talk to somebody. Holding these feelings in, and never expressing yourself, can result in depression and suicidal tendencies. REMEMBER TO NEVER HOLD THESE NEGATIVE FEELINGS IN.
