THE THROAT CHAKRA (VISHUDDHA) IS THE FIFTH ENERGETIC WHEEL LOCATED JUST ABOVE THE COLLAR AT THE BASE OF THE NECK, in blue. It governs how we speak our deepest truth and begins our spirit line of energetic centers. It governs the thyroid, parathyroid, throat, neck, mouth, tongue, and larynx.*
When your throat chakra is imbalanced, you often speak of a lower form of communication or say things you do not mean. Being unable to tap into your inner truth will prevent you from speaking eloquently and from attracting your most compatible source of people. Stand your ground and stay real, avoiding speaking in a way that is resonant with who you're talking to but feels organic to you.
HOW TO NOURISH
To balance your throat chakra, sing + chant + hum like you mean it. Focus on drawing energy to the throat by practicing Ujjayi + Lions breath + camel pose. By heating this energetic center you will boost thyroid + parathyroid function. Aquamarine, sapphire, and blue topaz will restore your truth and ability to stay rooted in your own organics.
THROAT CHAKRA PANTRY
Consuming adequate amounts of fresh juices, blue majik algae, lemongrass, and salt will help your energy system celebrate your truth and speak with clarity. Tonify your lack of affirmation with apples, pears, plums, and chamomile tea. Invite sea vegetables, especially in the form of broth-based soups, into your mermaid-like quest to truth and communication.
