the balance between physical and spiritual worlds - communication - listening - honesty - clarity - creative expression - manifestation - expressive truth - your voice

Find your inner voice! Speak the truth!

Free your creativity!

When you have a depleted throat chakra you may be unclear in your speech. You may not express the truth. You may lose your voice and develop laryngitis. Fear of speaking or excessive shyness are signs of a deficient throat chakra.

With an overactive throat chakra one may talk too much and also may talk about nothing of real importance.

When our throat chakra is in balance, we express ourselves clearly with personal integrity. We are considerate and thoughtful in our communications. We are honest without being hurtful to others.

There are many ways to heal and balance the throat chakra.
