We all know that communication is the key to harmonious relationships (personally and professionally), yet how many of us struggle with expressing ourselves openly and honestly, unsure of how the other person might respond? You get what you want by asking for it but how many of us have been taught it’s better to keep quiet than to open your mouth and potentially create confrontation or conflict?
If you are one who has trouble expressing your truth, look to your blue throat chakra for some help, located of course at the throat. When balanced this chakra helps us to express who we really are, not only via our verbal communication but also through the clothes we wear, the career we choose and the lifestyle we live. Do these things match who you feel you really are or have you conformed to the reality around you not wanting to risk judgement, criticism or being outcast by a certain social, cultural or family group?
We fear the worst, imagining that our truth will cause another to no longer like or want us. Not wanting to create waves in our relationship or risk getting fired, we choose to keep our thoughts to ourselves or share them with friends and colleagues. This release brings temporary relief but in the long term does nothing to solve our problems. When we don’t speak our truth to who we need to speak it to, that person remains oblivious (they can’t read our minds!) and any minor irritations or issues on our part are sure to become major eventually. As hard as communicating our truth may be, it is not communicating that will cause us the largest waves in the long run.
HOW THE BLUE THROAT VISHUDDHA CHAKRA GETS BLOCKED
Unfortunately, starting in our childhood, we are more often taught to conform than to listen to our own truth and feel safe enough to express it. We are scolded for not wanting to spend time with a certain family member rather than be honoured for our own knowing that this isn’t a good person. We are laughed at for speaking to our “imaginary” friends instead of being recognized for our connection to spirit. We are told to pick careers that are “safe and secure” rather than encouraged to do that which brings us joy. Teachers, parents, society, all play their part in quashing our true nature, replacing it with layers of their own misguided beliefs and we usually grow up with no real sense of which part of us is the true us and which part has been influenced by others. Worse, we have been conditioned to accept our conditioning and the true self often remains hidden beneath layers of non-truth.
EFFECTS OF A BLOCKED BLUE THROAT VISHUDDHA CHAKRA
Physically, the blocks we hold around our throat chakra can manifest as:
- ear, nose or throat problems
- issues with the thyroid
- hearing problems
- stiff neck
HOW TO BALANCE YOUR BLUE THROAT VISHUDDHA CHAKRA
To balance your throat chakra, re-connect with your true nature and feel safe enough to express it and start journaling. This is a safe place to write down all your thoughts and feelings and an excellent way to allow the voice of your true inner you be heard. You will discover deep hidden thoughts, feelings and desires that you haven’t fully acknowledged or have long forgotten about. Also try painting, art and craftwork, chanting or singing.
