The throat chakra is affected in general by our open-mindedness and the ability to express creativity and communication. It’s located at thoracic vertebrae 1-4.
Physically, the throat chakra anatomy encompasses the thyroid, parathyroid, voice, ears, shoulder, arms, hands, upper lungs, and lymphatic system.
Emotionally, the throat chakra is affected by our willingness to express our emotions and feeling through our voice and arms. If we grew up with emotionally unresponsive families, our voice may be depleted. Our openness to express our feelings and ask for what we need on our journey to support ourselves affects the throat chakra. How often do you ask for what you need? How often do you use your voice to speak your truth? Is that hard for you to do?
The mental body is affected by our mental control over preventing what needs to be said. For instance, we may try to stifle our voice, not share our truth, for the sake of others even if it depletes us. The mental body and throat chakra are connected by our willingness to express our creativity and have acceptance of our ideas. How often do you allow yourself free creative self-expression without judgment?
Journal prompts for your throat chakra:
1) What does Authentic Empowerment mean to me? How do I live authentically in my life?
2) How can I increase my creative self-expression?
3) What do I need to voice right now at this moment? And to whom?
I hope this gives you a greater understanding of the throat chakra and it’s vital role in the souls healing journey.
