A balanced Throat Chakra
will give you the ability to express your inner truth and creativity. Therefore the balance of this Sound Chakra will determine how honest you are. Also, a balanced Throat Chakra reflects in the ability to give good advices for friends in need. Most of all you will be very creative and helpful. You know what you want and you are able to clearly express your desires also. In response, the Universe reacts like a magnet in materializing your spoken wishes. As a result you are respected by others for the courage you speak about your weaknesses.
An over-active Throat Chakra makes you express your opinion more and often than it`s necessary. Also, you may have a strong critic sense on other`s life performance. You don`t like others to express their opinion. As a result your representative quote is: “If you are not with me, you are against me”
If you have an under-active Throat Chakra you will be unable to express yourself, being misunderstood and misinterpreted by others. Because of that, people in your life may consider they cannot rely on you. You feel that you don`t have the power to accept the truth about who you are. But, you cannot lie about your own nature. Until you don`t speak the truth about yourself to others and to you, your life will reflect the consequences of your blockages.
These behavior characteristics of an unbalanced Throat Chakra are accompanied by some physical symptoms also. The most common “body signals” corresponding to this chakra are: throat lump, laryngitis, sore throat, teeth problems, thrush, jaw problems, earaches neck and shoulders problems. Also Thyroid problems and sinus infections are other two signs of an unbalanced Sound Chakra.
In order to start your Throat Chakra healing process, to restore optimum balance and aliveness in your everyday life, to gain an abundant creativity and strongly felt intuition, you need to speak your inner truth. Purify your soul from lies. An open, balanced Sound Chakra allows you to experience the joy and happiness of living your truth, to be honest and non-judgmental about your desires, and to live as your authentic self.
There are different ways to balance and heal your chakra system.

Each of the earlier mentioned methods, transmit particular vibrational frequencies that help our body and our related chakra align to a natural and harmonized vibrational scheme.
