The throat chakra, often called Vishuddha in Sanskrit, is connected to our ability to communicate clearly, compassionately, and without restraint. It also provides a pathway for a deeper understanding of our own authentic self.
Whether you’re struggling to speak your truth for fear of rejection or you find yourself hedging and changing your words as much as possible, there’s likely a blockage in your Throat Chakra.
There are several ways to heal the throat chakra, including yoga, mindful breathing, aromatherapy, crystals, and a colorful diet. But the best way to begin healing your Throat Chakra is by connecting with your own inner truth through meditation.
One of the most effective methods of chakra meditation is focusing on your breath. This can be done through a simple chant or by sitting with your eyes closed and observing your breathing as you inhale and exhale.
Another powerful way to bring your throat chakra back into balance is through visualization. Using your imagination, imagine a sapphire-blue light that radiates from your throat.
This light expands to the thyroid, illuminating it and sending pure blue healing energy throughout your neck and head. It sends this healing to your voice box as well, waking it up and strengthening your vocal cords.
Expressing your thoughts and feelings on paper is a cathartic way to release them, especially when it’s just you and your pen. You may be surprised by the spontaneous insights and understanding that come up as you express yourself.
