Throat Chakra Healing and Balancing
If you are working on your throat chakra in order to balance it, you will have to work on your expression, communication skills and reasoning.
You might be challenged by the situations in which you will be forced to take the stand and learn to clearly express your opinion. On the other hand, you will have to learn how to accept views of others and find a healthy balance on both sides.
Throat Chakra Imbalance: The Impact on Your Physical Health
The throat chakra location is in the area of neck and throat. As such it is connected to the adjacent organs and body parts, such as upper airways, tonsils, jaws, neck, etc. The interference with the energy flow through the throat chakra is often audible – the voice is hoarse, stiff, or weak, there might be stammering.
Frequent inflammation of larynx, esophagus, and tonsils are also indicative of throat chakra imbalance. The same goes for tense neck and shoulders, trouble swallowing, and the so-called “lump in the throat” feeling.
Various other speech impediments are tied to an unhealthy throat chakra as well.
Apart from neck area problems, an imbalanced fifth chakra can also reflect in thyroid problems (hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism), a goiter, ear pain, and in teeth and gum issues.
The thyroid and parathyroid glands are endocrine glands that have a substantial impact on the metabolism. An inactive throat chakra is thus related to weight issues (too low or too high) and energy issues (hyperactivity or lethargy).
How to Heal Your Throat Chakra?
Meditation is the first step towards healing your fifth chakra. You can use herbal extracts of Mimulus, agrimony, or blue plumbago, and etheric oils of eucalyptus, mint, camphor, or ginger to help you relax.
By establishing the balance of your throat chakra, you will be able to advance your personal and spiritual growth even further.

The Benefits of Balancing Your VISHUDDHA
A balanced throat chakra will grant you a whole new experience of words and music. It will allow you to become one with these sounds. It will have the same effect on thinking, since thoughts are no more than “thought words” that, much like their verbalized counterparts, have an enormous effect on your mood and the way you perceive life.
A harmonious voice, unencumbered breathing, and relaxed muscle tissue in the neck, back of the neck and shoulders are just some of the health benefits tied to a well-balanced and active fifth chakra.
Truly liberated personalities, people with a well-developed and healthy throat chakra, are truthful, have no problems striving towards the truth, and can express it with conviction.
As such they are more persuasive and make for better leaders. At the same time, they have internalized the notion that sometimes the truth can be relative, and quite a multidimensional phenomenon that cannot be described in simplistic black and white terms. Such a view of the truth helps them understand others and the world better, and respond to situations with more wisdom.
If you are troubled in your life and what you desire most is the inner peace you need to work on balancing your throat chakra.
One way to release frustration and pent-up negative energy is through communication. Don’t forget that communication is a two-way street. You need to learn how to listen attentively, too.
An active fifth chakra will allow you to communicate better thus improving your relationships and the way you feel about yourself. You will find that talking about what ails you is helpful regarding the search for solutions to your problems or simply in unburdening your mental load.
Another way of restoring the balance to your throat chakra is by expressing yourself creatively and releasing the build-up of energy in that manner.
Choose whatever artistic expression is close to you, be it singing in the shower, doodling, painting or any other creative outlet.
