THROAT - Tell your Story
Located: Center of the Neck
Yoga Poses: Supported Head Stand & Supported Shoulder Stand
The original name of our Throat chakra is Vishudda, meaning “Purification”. This chakra is our fifth chakra. Located on the center of our neck, our Throat chakra is connected to speaking our truth. This is the driving force of our expression and communication. When balanced, our Throat chakra allows us to express our truth, communicate clearly, create new projects, and be unapologetically ourselves.
Without realizing, we could close ourselves off to the benefits of our Throat Chakra. Our throat can get out of balance when we start to feel a lack of control, fear of speaking, not being able to listen to others, and lying. Some physical symptoms of an unbalance include thyroid problems, neck pain, headaches, and tooth pain.
To bring balance back into our throat, we must do things that allow us to speak up for ourselves. Holistic ways to balance your Throat chakra include incorporating essential oils into our daily routine, like our Throat Chakra Aromatherapy blend which consists of natural Chamomile, Cypress, and Peppermint essential oils. Using crystals in our meditative state or wearing them on our physical body will also help balance your chakras. Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, Amazonite, and Aquamarine are very powerful tools for our Throat chakra as well.
