Communicate With Your Throat Chakra

The 7 Week Chakra Tease

This article is the 5th in a 7 part series inviting you to take a closer look…and feel…of your energy, one chakra at a time.

Communicate With Your Throat Chakra

This energy center is localized in the throat area and relates to communication and self-expression; the ability to voice our dreams. Our word is powerful, and the way in which we speak our words has great influence and real impact in our lives.

We are verbal beings. We currently live in a mass culture dominated by the word, and our current popular culture seems to thrive on gossip, actively encouraging its citizens to talk about other people. When our center of communication is clear, we’re able to express our truth without worrying about what others may think. In contrast, with a congested fifth chakra, we feel anxious about how other people will react to our views and are likely to censor ourselves.

Another important function of the throat chakra is the act of listening. This includes listening to the outer world with our physical ears, as well as listening to our internal world. When we focus attention internally and listen to what our bodies are telling us, we begin to hear the truth of our own inner story. Thoughts and fears are trying to communicate. Body sensations carry meaning and a yearning to be heard. As we begin to hear our inner story, we experience a deeper resonance with our true self.

The throat chakra is also the gateway to our unique creative expression. Creativity, be it through dance, art, language or music, gives expression to our inner discoveries. We can develop our creative self through awakening the throat chakra.

Spiritual challenges: To recognize that your strength of will is measured not by how well you exert your will over others, but how well you control yourself. Conscious self-control and discipline means living according to the truth that every thought you have is either a potential act of grace or a potential weapon. Right thought leads to right speech leads to right acting.

Healing Strategy: Learn communication skills, letter writing, inner child communication, practice silence (excessive), story telling, singing, chanting, toning, release voice, loosen neck and shoulders.

“I allow the truth to speak through me.”
“I am heard.”
“Creativity flows through me.”
“It is my essence to create.”
“When I listen I hear the truth.”
“I am able to speak to others clearly and eloquently.”
“It is good, right, and safe for me to express my true essence.”
“My truth is necessary.”
“I allow my essence to express itself in my life.”

Affirmations are a powerful way of communicating with your inner self. Take a few moments to sit in quiet reflection. Tune into your own throat chakra and find the affirmations needed specifically for you at this time.  Use these positive messages (or find your own) as part of your healing process for your throat chakra.

Feel what you need to say to yourself of hear from yourself to bring healing to your throat chakra, and then take a few minutes each day this week to repeat them. Embody them. Be them!

·  Sit comfortably in your normal meditation posture
·  Visualize a sapphire-blue chakra spinning slowly inside your throat
·  Imagine a widening circle of blue light that fills your throat, mouth and chest
·  Notice the silence by becoming mindful of the silence pervading inside and around you
·  Meditate like this for at least 20 minutes


The 7 Week Chakra Tease will continue next week with the Brow Chakra.  Think perception, intuition, visualization, wisdom and insight!

Until then….stay clear and breathe deeply.

In the Spirit of Clear Living,
