The Throat Chakra, associated with Thursdays, Sky Blue, Truth and with your Self Expression and Communication is a vortex of POTENTIAL energy. It is a pathway for your life energy to flow as you express to yourself and others what is in your heart–your TRUTH.
Vishuddha, throat chakra, is the bridge from the heart chakra to the upper most spiritual energy centers. A person with a balanced 5th chakra will express the emotions in their heart, may express their joy for life through song, desires harmonious connection with others and focuses on appreciation of global matters instead of fixating on nationality.
When our throat chakra is in balance, we are able to listen and communicate well. When we are having trouble expressing ourselves, or having trouble with communication (being unable to say what you want to say to others and/or not truly listening to what you are being told) the throat chakra is unbalanced and the energy is throttled and flipped around willy-nilly. This imbalance will first resonate as a tingle, tickle, ache, lump, cough, trouble swallowing or sensitivity in the throat region stemming anywhere from the base of the neck to the ears.
As soon as the emotional issue has been resolved through meditation(read that as cleaning out negativity cobwebs), the symptoms will clear up or simply completely vanish.
When in balance the throat chakra offers us faithfulness to our true selves, an ability to express ourselves and our ideas, good communication skills, and truthfulness.
SOUNDS: Meditation Music for the Throat Chakra. One I found was Open Throat Chakra/Meditation Music and Vibrations at 384 hz by Meditative Music-Meditative Mind
AROMAS: Diffuse Frankincense, Camomile, Lavender or Sandalwood
You can also make a throat chakra self-Expression Mist to be worn as a body spray: 8 drops lavender essential oil, 4 drops coriander essential oil, 8 drops bergamot essential oil, 8 drops frankincense essential oil and 1/2 cup water. Mix in mister bottle then shake rather vigorously then mist on yourself and all about when desired.
CRYSTALS: Crystals which vibrate near the same frequency as the Throat Chakra are Celestite, Lapis Lazuli, and Turquoise….. Let your intentions for expressing your compassionate heart clearly to yourself and others be known for the crystals and aromas to be most effective. Repeat your intentions frequently throughout the day and notice the power of the fragrances and crystals.

One way to connect with the swirling blue throat chakra is to chant. Take a comfortable seat. Softly close our eyes and lips. Relax your face and jaw. Begin to make the sound “mmmmmmmmm” at whatever resonant tone is natural for you( ’so’ on the scale if you desire) Feel the vibration all around the tongue, lips, cheeks, jaw, ears and throat. Imagine this sound vibrating loose any tension in the throat, neck and jaw region. Let go of the times you have had to bite your tongue or have had a lump in your throat from the fear of speaking up. Feel the vibration purifying and freeing your throat energy.
From a comfortable seated position, tend your spine long and root down into your foundation. Reach your right arm out to the right. Gently begin to release your head and let it hang to the right. Drag your right shoulder and shoulder blade down to create a stable foundation. Now extend your left arm out about 6 inches above the floor and reach out and down to create some traction and a big stretch on the left side of the neck. Spend 5-10 breaths here. Be patient. It takes time for the blood to move through and heal tight and stiff muscle tissue, so try to hold for as long as you can without pain. Make your breaths deep and slow and keep your eyes and jaw relaxed. Gently return to center, pause for a moment, and notice the difference, then switch sides.
Fish pose——Relax for a bit in the Corpse Pose. Stay flat on your back and bring your feet together. With your arms straight by your sides, lay your palms on the floor, then tuck your hands underneath your buttocks. When ready arch your spine tilting your head back so that your crown rests on the ground. Hold for 30 seconds. To come out of the fish, slide your head back and then lower your chest. To finish, relax by lying in the corpse.

Drink plenty of water today—and every day. Add lemons and lime, sans sweeteners, to spike the water and keep your pH alkaline. Apples and peaches can also help to cleanse, clear and open our throat chakra.
Try to spend some of your day in connection with blue skies, calm, still water or the open sea as you are aware of , listening to and expressing your feelings–your TRUE self– genuinely and without fear of what other may think. Believe in your ability to courageously come forward and tell your truth. Infuse your projects with this kind of daring drive.
