Keeping your throat chakra balanced and energized may seem simple enough to do but most people trip up or dance around saying what is truly on their mind for fear of judgment, or worse, reprisal. “Sticking your foot in your mouth” has often been a tagline for those who dare speak their truth but somehow fumble about choosing the most effective words.
Another great example of working on your throat chakra is knowing when and how to say NO. If saying yes over and over again, against your own better judgment and gut instincts will only weaken the throat and neck area. Conversely, strain in your neck and shoulders could result from the feelings of guilt when you do say NO as well as from repeatedly not listening to sound advice.
Having others respect your boundaries by verbally outlining where these lines are, is essential to a healthy throat chakra which anatomically includes, the larynx, the thyroid, mouth, shoulders, neck, and ears. Any imbalance in this area requires some firm acknowledgment of what is, and a regular affirmation practice to develop what could be.

This simple quote from Mahatma Gandhi sums it up beautifully
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
Choose a favourite affirmation or two and post them where you will see them each day, like your fridge door, your bathroom mirror, or in your car.
