On a physical level, of course the answer is the throat, but on an energetic level, this energy actually comes from your 5th chakra. This chakra lets you speak your truth with clarity.
Resting right above the heart, the throat chakra is connected to the compassion and love you have for yourself and others.
Balancing your 5th chakra is as easy as thinking before you speak.
Take it from the Buddha, before you say anything, ask yourself:
“Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?”
Sometimes, we have been ignored and invalidated so much that we react in an opposite way – we shut down our voices and never speak our truth.
If you have an underactive throat chakra, you have likely been called shy or quiet. You may find yourself unable to express your emotions or struggling for words when you try to speak your truth.
Physical symptoms often include digestive issues, because energy diverted away from the throat chakra often ends up being “swallowed” or sent down to the 3rd chakra.
Speak your truth!
Even if no one is around to hear you, practice expressing your emotions and truths when you’re alone.
It’s very common to think that we should only speak when someone else is around to hear it, but if you’re trying to energize your third chakra, it doesn’t matter if its received by any other ear than your own.
