Balance your throat chakra and learn how to speak your truth
Are you ready to learn how to speak your truth? Are you tired of feeling suppressed and want others to know you think? If so, read this article and learn how to tell your truth by balancing your Throat Chakra. Overall, I think many of us feel somewhat restricted today in being able to verbalize our thoughts. However, we were given that inherent right to say and mean what we think as human beings.
If you aren’t able to express your emotions, then your throat chakra may be closed off. When your throat chakra is shut down, it can cause a whole slew of problems for your emotional and physical health. In this article, I will explain what can happen if your Throat Chakra is not aligned, and I will also give you ways to balance this energy center. I hope you enjoy it!
What is the Throat Chakra?
The Throat Chakra is closely related to your creativity and self-expression. The other name for this chakra is Vishuddha. The throat chakra directly affects the quality of our communication. It is linked to our integrity and sense of honor. If we deepen our commitment to expressing the truth, the Throat Chakra expands and becomes an invincible ally of the spirit, channeling energy for our physical vitality and spiritual development1.
The location of this chakra is near the internal and external throat2. It is directly related to our thyroid and parathyroid glands. Some physical effects of an imbalanced throat chakra include fatigue, weakness, and dissipation. You may even suffer from thyroid problems. Conventional medicine teaches us to always blame our family history for having a “thyroid” issue. What if it is not that, and it is a Throat Chakra block? Some other conditions that can manifest from this chakra being closed off include raspy throat, mouth ulcers, gum difficulties, TMJ, stiff neck, scoliosis, swollen glands3.
What emotions are associated with the Throat Chakra?
When it comes to speaking your truths, there is a way to do it tactfully. In other words, you do need a filter. For example, you would not yell at someone in the grocery store and tell them, “you’re ugly, get out of my way.” However, speaking your truth does come into effect when you are asked your personal opinion on religion, politics, etc. Overall, I always try to avoid the religion or political arena when conversing with people( unless that is the subject we are talking about). But, that being said, if someone inadvertently starts saying something that I disagree with, I will very tactfully tell them my view on the matter.
If you are worried about telling someone your actual viewpoint on a subject in which you feel strongly, then you must ask yourself, “Where do I stand with this person?” Overall, if someone is true to you, they will accept where you stand on any subject. If they disagree with you on a particular topic, avoid that subject when you are around them. At least they already know where you stand, so you don’t have to talk about those touchy subjects when you are around them. So, indirectly you are still exerting your Throat Chakra because they know where you stand.
How do I balance my throat chakra and learn how to speak my truth?
When balancing your Throat Chakra and learning how to speak your truth, it is essential to know how to manage this energy center. I am going to mention several different ways you can tend to this chakra. You can pick one of these methods that I mention, or choose all of them. I do urge you to do every single one of them to better your chance of success. If you would like to listen to my podcast about the Throat Chakra, then I urge you to go here to learn.
Meditation is excellent for helping you to learn to speak your truth with Throat Chakra balance. There have been times where I have struggled to be creative and feel sluggish. Sometimes, I may have writer’s block or don’t feel very inspired. When this happens, I know that I need to take a time out. That is when I make it a point to stop everything I am doing and go meditating. Afterward, I usually feel so refreshed and can pick up where I left off with no problems. All it takes is at least 5-10 minutes of your day! If you can do more, then I would do it.
Meditation is like vitamins for your body. During the day, our sympathetic nervous system is on constant overdrive. We are thinking about bills, our health, jobs, kids, the list goes on! It puts us in a fight or flight mode, which is not suitable for our nervous system or adrenal glands! Consistently, being in this state can lead to disease.
When you meditate for your throat chakra, it is helpful to say affirmations. When it comes to affirmations, there has been actual research that proves that repetitively saying a phrase will help your mind to believe what you are saying. Some affirmations for the throat chakra include,” I speak,” I live in my truth,” “I communicate my truth,” and” I am the truth”8. These affirmations can help a Throat Chakra become unblocked! Say these affirmations over and over when you meditate.
You can also say these affirmations when doing daily chores such as washing the dishes or doing laundry. Whatever! One thing that I like to do is make flashcards and carry them around so I can frequently refer to them daily. If you want to read a good book on affirmations, I would recommend Heal your body by Louise Hay. You can find the link to her book under my Resource Page. These affirmations can help to improve your creativity with throat chakra balance!
Tai’Chi Gung and Yoga
When clearing out energies with the Throat Chakra, it is essential to do exercises to help move energy in your etheric field. I have found that the combination of Tai’ Chi Gung and yoga has helped me clear up many of my issues with the Throat Chakra and help with self-expression. I have been doing yoga almost every day for several years now, and recently have added in Tai’ Chi Gung.
I have found that the combination of yoga and Tai’ Chi Gung has helped with my self-expression. Both have also helped me to be able to speak my truths. For example, for the longest time, I wanted to teach people holistic information and start a blog. Before learning my true dreams, I was practicing conventional medicine as a nurse practitioner. However, once I started doing yoga, I realized that I could follow my dreams. It was an epiphany!
Over the last two months, with the addition of Tai’ Chi Gung into my daily regime, I have found that my energy has gone to the next level! Tai’ Chi Gung, in addition to yoga, has allowed me to take my life a step further and finally realize that my ultimate life path is to be a shamanic practitioner. So what does this mean? Eventually, I will be creating a coaching service on this website that incorporates healing via dietary means and will help people heal on an energetic level. So exciting!!
Gemstones and Essential Oils
When it comes to the process of how to learn to speak your truth, I think you should always have essential oils and gemstones in your toolbox. I like to use gemstones and essential oils daily. Not only are they beneficial during meditation, but and you can also carry them around in your pocket or purse. I even like to wear them around my neck. For example, I will wear a citrine gemstone to help with the Solar Plexus Chakra balance. The essential oils tailored to the Throat Chakra include lavender, rosemary, frankincense, German chamomile, and hyssop.4 The gemstones for this chakra include turquoise, blue kyanite, aquamarine, celestite, iolite, sodalite, and lapis lazuli5.
Other throat chakra opening tools
Singing and listening to Solfeggio Frequencies
Singing is an excellent intervention to “learn how to speak your truth.” It helps a lot if your Throat Chakra is blocked! You can incorporate songs with your affirmations. First, find a mirror, and then practice speaking from deep in your abdomen while creating a deep vocal resonance as you say, “I live in my truth.” If you want to sing in the shower, do it and don’t feel embarrassed. Maybe sing while driving in a car. I know I prefer to sing when nobody is around. If you have a good voice, sing in front of people. Singing is so good for strengthening this chakra!
Another thing I like to do is listen to Solfeggio Frequencies. These tunes are so good for healing chakras! The one that is associated with the Throat Chakra is 741 Hz sound frequency. 741 Hz Solfeggio acts as a repulsive magnet for toxins, negativity, anger, jealousy, lies, and everything that brings negativity in our lives. It acts as a protective armor against all things negative, inside us and outside us 6. Perfect for Throat Chakra healing!
The last Throat Chakra balancing tool I want to mention is sleeping to ” learn to speak your truth.” This intervention is so essential but wholly overlooked. How can you express your truth when you aren’t sleeping well? It is near to impossible! You see, when you sleep, your brain heals and processes information from the day. When we don’t sleep well, we tend to doubt ourselves more and not think clearly. Research has proven time and time again, that sleep enhances problem-solving.
If you have difficulty sleeping, then it is not impossible to get it back. I have a great article called, How To Stay Asleep and Not Wake Up[10 tips]. Read this post and learn about different ways on how you can get your sleep back. One thing that has helped my sleep is a Chilipad. You see, when it comes to sleep, it is all about keeping your body at a cool temperature. When your core body temperature is cool, then you are more apt to sleep through the night. Anyways, go to the article that I mentioned above and learn more!
Overall, I have noticed improved benefits in my life with the keto diet and energetic balance. This lifestyle has essentially taught me how to learn how to speak my truth. That is precisely why I have dedicated an entire blog to this lifestyle! These two concepts are very connected and work together like a feedback system. Through my own experience, I have found improved health and well-being by doing a keto diet in combination with interventions to help improve my energetic body. I want you to feel this way too.
The keto diet alone is just not good enough; you need to get nutrients from taking out precious time for yourself as well. This can be with meditation, yoga, walking, prayer, singing. Whatever you choose! After all, you are the driver here. I lead you to the water, and you drink it up! Please sign up for my email list and join me on a journey towards wellness.
