The Throat Chakra- Visuddha

The location of the throat chakra includes the neck, mouth, jaw and cervical vertibre. It is the center of communication, free will, creative identity, truthfulness and self expression. It allows us to be true to our inner voice and express ourselves authentically with ease.

Benefits of balancing this chakra: Acceptance of your originality, easily stand up for what you believe in regardless of opposition from others, ability to find balance between sound and silence; meaning you can strongly speak your truth but also be a deep listener to others.

Signs of inbalance: Inner conflicts, feeling misunderstood, over analyzing moments or interactions with others, fear of not having a choice or authority in your own life, thyroid illnesses, headaches, neck pain, dental issues.
