7 Chakra Overview: What is Throat Chakra?

Welcome back to our chakra learning session. In the previous chapter, we talked about the Heart Chakra, the fourth energy center, the chakra that is associated with love and compassion. In this video, we will go on to the fifth chakra, the Throat Chakra, and share with you the affirmations that help balance it.



The throat chakra is located in the area of the throat.

Throat Chakra – Express your truth

Being the communication center of the body, the throat chakra governs your ability not only to speak your truth openly and purely but also your ability to understand your needs and desires and being able to communicate them. This chakra is the seat of self-expression and can be viewed as a crossroads of the heart and the head — serving as a mediator between emotions and thoughts. You might seek to heal your throat chakra to be able to express yourself freely and creatively in your day-to-day life. Or you can pursue more spiritual goals to amplify your subtle body and become more attuned to the divine plan for your Soul.

Connections with our Body and Emotion

If your 5th Chakra is closed or blocked, you are likely to experience frustration when it comes to expressing your feelings. This often means not being able to find the correct words, particularly when you are scared of losing something or someone. Deficiencies in the 5th Chakra often contribute to a number of physical ailments that can include thyroid imbalances, hearing problems, tonsillitis, mouth ulcers, tinnitus, bronchitis, asthma, and ear infections.

Balance your Throat Chakra

To balance your throat chakra, start with a simple meditation of imaging a spinning ball of blue light sitting at the level of your throat. As the blue sphere getting bigger and bigger, focusing on a feeling of openness and relaxation in the throat. As your body and mind begin to calm, visualize a pool of blue light filling your entire being. You may want to listen to our Throat healing guided meditation video to re-balance your Throat Chakra.

Throat Chakra and Singing!?

Singing is a fantastic method to clear your Throat Chakra, so start singing in the shower on your way to work or whenever possible. This method works purely on your physical level and helps overcome blockages in your throat chakra. Singing literally helps you voice your truth out into the world!


Targeted affirmations are incredibly useful for throat chakra healing and balancing. You can repeat these
positive statements multiple times a day, or anytime you get a sense your chakra might be blocked:

I have a right to speak my truth

I am open, clear, and honest in my communication

I express myself clearly and authentically

I listen to the meanings behind the words of others

I express myself creatively through speech, writing, music, or art

I use my voice to share wisdom truth

The main challenge for the fifth chakra is doubt and negative thinking. When you gain and verify your
knowledge through meditation and direct experience, then doubt and negativity are removed. If you enjoy your learning journey so far, please press the like and subscribe button, we appreciate for your
