The throat chakra, aka the vishuddha, allows us to find our voice & speak our truth. The throat chakra plays an essential role in communication, creativity, & self-expression.
It is so important because it links the chakras of our higher self (crown & third eye) to those of our physical body.
With any chakra imbalance, you can experience physical and emotional symptoms.
When your throat chakra is open and functioning optimally, you will be able to communicate fearlessly from your heart. You will also be receptive to hearing others and truly listening.
The physical symptoms may include sore throats, tight jaws, stiff necks, headaches and more. The emotional symptoms may include feelings of depression, anxiety or low self-esteem.
It could also manifest as a harder time relating to and connecting with others or an inability to express yourself clearly (possibly lying or at a loss for words).
