VISHUDDHA, THE THROAT CHAKRA
Vishuddha or our throat chakra is the fifth primary chakra. Located in our throat and is represented by our innate nature and ability to articulate, it controls our need and power to self-expression. The throat chakra is responsible for communication, and our ability to speak our personal truth.
Physically, it is believed to be situated in the neck and throat. It is also associated with both the ears and the mouth, and thus its relation with our hearing and speaking skills, so when this chakra is misaligned and we suffer from its imbalance, we experience issues with creativity and communication.
Often, it is also physically associated with our thyroid gland, so when a person struggles with Vishuddha imbalance, it is believed that he may also experience thyroid imbalance as a physical symptom, including sore throat and hearing difficulties.
VISHUDDHA IMBALANCE SYMPTOMS:
Being fearful about speaking your personal truth
Having difficulties in expressing your thoughts
Anxiety to social events, always anxious about speaking and communicating with other people.
So let’s avoid welcoming stress into our inner self. Negative thoughts and stressful events create tension especially in our vocal folds and it greatly leads to worsening medical issues such as vocal nodules, fatigue, and vocal problems.
HOW TO BALANCE YOUR THROAT CHAKRA:
Morning meditation to enhance the clarity of the mind
Pranayama - breathing practices to support the flow of energy
Use throat stones
- Practice Abhyanga.
Lymph drain: starting from your face (to include areas near the ears and around the mouth and jaws) down to your neck and shoulders.
Exercise: do neck stretches
Sound therapy: singing bowls and bija mantra
Try engaging yourself in journaling
Keep a good posture
Over centuries, the practice of Ayurvedic wellness has proven to result in a more rejuvenated body, mind and spirit, thus nurturing mindfulness and stronger immunity.
