Crystals to Balance the Throat Chakra

In Sanskrit the word "chakra" translates to "wheel." This invisible life force or energy helps to keep us vibrant, healthy, and alive. There are 7 Chakras that span the length of the spine, each associated with a specific color and controls specific energies in our bodies. 

When energy is trapped in the body, it leads to stagnation. That could be a stagnation of forward momentum in your life, or a stagnation of evolution—or at its worst can become a toxic stagnation that may lead to disease in the body. This is why it's important to be aware of where you tend to hold and feel things in your body.

There is so much to learn, but at a basic level, if you can get clear about what is troubling you by looking at thought patterns and physical symptoms, you can then match it to the corresponding Chakra energy system. You can then pick gemstones based on the Chakra colors to help release and clear blockages in that energy center.

Our Chakra blog series will help you work with your body to clear blockages with focused thought, mantras, and crystals.

Where & What Is The Throat Chakra?

The Throat Chakra: Express Your Truth in Shades of Blue

The Throat Chakra, also known as Vishuddha (meaning "especially pure" in Sanskrit), glows the shade of BLUE. Located at the base of the throat, this energy center is your gateway to authentic expression and communication. It's associated with your ability to speak your truth, communicate openly, and express creativity. When balanced, it facilitates clear communication and confident self-expression.

Balancing Act for Authentic Expression

Balancing the Throat Chakra lays the groundwork for authentic living and opens the path to creativity, self-expression, and effective communication. It's your voice in the symphony of the Chakras.

However, when out of balance, it can lead to communication challenges, difficulty expressing emotions, and feelings of being unheard. Physical symptoms may include throat issues, neck pain, and even dental problems.

Meditation for Harmonious Expression

Once you have your chosen stone, find a tranquil space, sit comfortably, and close your eyes. Envision a radiant blue light emanating from the crystal, bathing your Throat Chakra. Feel the energy of the earth supporting your authentic expression. Whether it's a crystal chunk or a piece of jewelry, let it serve as a conduit for healing.
