The Throat Chakra
The Throat Chakra is the first of the upper Chakra’s, pertaining to the spiritual body, and is said to be linked with the Thyroid gland.
This Chakra is associated with Creativity, self expression and the search for truth. It is involved with how a person communicates with themselves as well as others on all levels as well as the physical, hearing , speaking, listening and communication.
It is also connected to listening to one’s intuition and our ability to receive .
The Throat Chakra influences your experiences to ; speak your truth, listening and being heard, finding your own true voice and being able to express that truth.
The Throat Chakra is partnered with the Root Chakra so we are able to experience the feeling of being able to “Walk our Talk”.
The health of this chakra relates to how truthfully we express ourselves. All choices in life have consequences on an energetic level. So even choosing to repress our thoughts can manifest into an illness (sore throat). We learn to speak our choices with our voice, so the more honest and truthful we are, not only with ourselves but to others as well, will help to balance this chakra. Lying will only violate our body’s and spirit.
