Balancing the fifth chakra, the throat chakra, throat chakras, assists your self-expression and helps you truly communicate your feelings without anger and arguing, which is such a waste of energy. Once balanced, the throat chakra gives you the ability to speak honestly, to speak your inner truth and receive and process information from others.
Do you have any of these signs of an unbalanced throat chakra? Shyness, criticism, excessive talking or inability to verbalize your feelings, chronic sore throats, TMJ, stiff neck, or an addiction to smoking.
YOGA POSES TO BALANCE THE THROAT CHAKRA
Start with the Chin Press Breath, affirming, "I am able to hear the voice of my soul." Then, focus on the vibration of the throat chakra, the sound of ee. Chant this sound out loud three times. Follow with yoga poses that loosen the neck and shoulders - shoulder shrugs and circles, the Fish, and the Half Shoulderstand.
WEAR THE COLOR BLUE
Blue is a calming color, cool and relaxing. It's also the color of communication. Wear it during the day to help you creatively express yourself, and at night to promote a good night's sleep and deep inner peace.
THROAT CHAKRA MEDITATION
The healing green light shining in the heart center moves up your spine to your throat, where it becomes a beautiful sky blue. Breathe in this blue light, then fill your lungs and open your throat wide as you sing whatever tone or note feels right! You know what to say and what not to say, how to communicate well. Feel yourself singing out clear energy, loving notes, healing vibrations for yourself and the entire universe. Make yourself heard and listen well to the love that returns to you.
