  • Emotional Issues and Behaviors of Blocked Throat Chakra: A blocked Throat Chakra primarily manifests in an inability to say what you really want to say. You may feel like you’re stuck holding onto secrets, that people don’t want to hear your thoughts, or that you can’t find the right words for your feelings. Once again, a small blockage may mean you only struggle with self-expression at work, or with a particular friend. Meanwhile, a significant misalignment may mean you constantly feel thwarted in communication. Physically, a blocked Throat Chakra may present with pain in the neck, sensitivity to hormone fluctuations, and discomfort in throat tissue.

 

 

 

 

 

1. STONES, JEWERLY, AND CHAKRA COLOR

There are specific stones that have ancient links to each of your chakras. All of them can be held in your hand, carried on you or in your belongings, or worn as jewelry. You could also wear the color of the chakra you are working on balancing. So for example, for the Throat Chakra, wear anything blue. It could be an undergarment, socks, pants, shirt, jacket etc. These techniques may help you to realign and unblock a troubled chakra.

 

2. MEDITATION AND YOGA

Chakra meditation techniques are similar to generic meditations, just with a focus and concentration on the particular chakra area and intent. Try this simple but effective Thorat Chakra meditation:

  • Sit down in a comfortable chair in a quiet room.

  • Inhale and exhale 9 times, as deeply as you can. Breathe in through your nose, and then exhale through your mouth.

  • Starting at the top of your head, scan down the body and imagine your muscles relaxing as you go.

  • When you’ve done this for your whole body, picture a spinning ball in a shade of blue (the throat chakra color). See it sitting at the level of your throat, and imagine it glowing.

  • See the blue sphere getting bigger and bigger, focusing on a feeling of openness and relaxation in the throat.

  • Allow the energy to disperse through your body, and then open your eyes when you’re ready.

The yoga pose’s baby cobra, shoulder stand, and supported fish pose are all associated with the Throat Chakra. You can find examples of these poses online.

 

3. FOOD SUGGESTIONS

There are specific foods that are linked to the Throat Chakra such as:

  • Blueberries: Perhaps unsurprisingly (given their blue hue), blueberries are among the most potent foods for the throat chakra. They can be mixed with blackberries and coconut to create a delicious, healing smoothie for the throat chakra. Try consuming it when you know you’re going to have to have a challenging conversation!

  • Fruits that grow on trees: Apples, oranges, and all other fruits that grow on trees are traditionally associated with the throat chakra. Experts say this is because these foods symbolize authenticity (due to the fact they only fall from their tree when they’re ready to eat).

  • Simple spices: Add salt, lemongrass, or ginger to foods when you’re trying to heal the throat chakra. All of these promote clear self-expression.

 

4. AFFIRMATIONS 

Affirmations are a well known technique used to balance chakras. Say positive affirmations at the beginning of the day, at the end of the day, multiple times throughout the day or anytime you get triggered or sense your chakra might be blocked. You can also say affirmations while doing yoga poses, while meditating and holding one of the stones associated with the chakra or write down affirmations and place them in prominent places so you can see them daily. Here are a few affirmations you can say:

  • “I can vocalize my emotions, no matter what they are.”

  • “My voice is important in this world.”

  • “I honor my true voice, and I let it speak.”

  • “I am an empathetic listener and a clear communicator.”

  • “When I speak, my contributions are honest but balanced.”

  • “I can find the right words in all situations.”

  • “Others hear my voice.”

  • “I speak my true thoughts with ease.”

  • “Let go of doubt about the word I ‘should’ have said.”

  • “I am always understood by others.”
