The Throat Chakra is your body’s energy centre for communication, authenticity, honesty, and integrity.

When your throat chakra is open and balanced, you’re able to communicate clearly and effectively. You feel empowered to speak openly and freely, and you deeply understand that your voice and your words are important and powerful. Additionally, you know the importance of give and take in communication, and you’re able to respectfully listen when others are speaking.

In addition to being the energy center for communication, your throat chakra is the energy center for truth, integrity, and authenticity. This means you do more than just speak; you speak your authentic truth while remaining true to yourself and your guiding principles. Your daily actions also support this, and as you move through your day, you remain aligned with your values and principles.

In contrast, when your throat chakra is underactive, you may be excessively shy, withdrawn, and/or experience difficulty expressing yourself. With an overactive throat chakra, you may be loud, gossipy, and someone who interrupts others and talks out of turn.

Your words, ideas, and wholehearted presence matter, and opening and healing your throat chakra is an essential step in your self-love journey.

Below are a few powerful throat chakra affirmations to help you open, balance, and heal this important energy centre:

– I speak my true thoughts with calmly

– I listen to my body and my feelings to know what my truth is

– I express my love and goodness each time I speak
