The Throat chakra is the center of creative expression.
When expressing truth and desired choices in our lives, we find out all decisions have consequences. This is the chakra of purification, allowing energy to transform into physical manifestations.
Speaking our truth is essential for maintaining success within our lives. That being said we also need to try and avoid negative views about others. Expressing anger towards another will likely affect our own energy, causing an imbalance within ourselves.
A balanced Throat Chakra allows us to be more accepting and put aside our past judgment. We may feel compelled to be in service to others, but only after we are approached with this opportunity, may we act. When the throat chakra is in balance we will likely attract these situations into our lives allowing those in need of service to receive. When we know what we want and openly express these desires our ability to manifest is intensified. The balanced energies easily support our truths and we are capable of incredible creative expression.
An Unbalanced Over-active Throat Chakra will typically manifest a critical outlook and overall negative demeanor. The friends and family members we interact with will likely seem inadequate, and, likely, we will not hesitate to let it be known. Overreacting and emotional outbursts such as screaming, yelling, and verbal attacks with little to no provocation indicate an overactive throat chakra.
An Unbalanced Under-active Throat Chakra has the opposite effect on us making it extremely difficult to communicate with others, and incapable of clearly expressing our thoughts when we do. Experiencing inner turmoil and likely avoiding the truth staring us in the face also indicates an overactive throat chakra. When you can’t clearly communicate to yourself what you want in life, then you can’t expect to experience an ideal outcome. An under-active throat chakra can be truly detrimental to our well-being, and we probably wouldn’t even be capable of recognizing this until after balancing techniques were applied.
