When the throat chakra is balanced we have an ability to listen to others and speak our truth in a way that is steady, tactful, and easy to understand. We know what we want out of life and are not afraid to ask for it or to express our weaknesses. A balanced throat chakra gives us the ability to communicate our thoughts, feelings and desires without fear of rejection.
It is the connection between our sense of who we are inside, of pure relationships with others, how we represent ourselves out in the world, and of playful detachment.
If the throat chakra is not balanced we may experience a fear of expressing ourselves, fear of speaking our truth, or excessive shyness. The voice itself may become timid and verbal communication very limited. Often being unable to say what we want to say to others and/or not truly listening to what we are being told.
The heart chakra is also a center of creativity, another form of symbolic communication. As we open up the heart chakra, we open up our creative potential and the greater our resonance within, the greater the power within our creations.
