Chakras are energy centers within the body which work together to sustain the energetic body. This correlates to the physical, emotional, and mental bodies which in turn affect your spiritual body. When these energy centers are working at their peak (open and in-tune) tasks, happiness, and life can feel much more fulfilling. Today we will take a closer look at the energy center located in the region of the Throat.
What is the Throat chakra?
The Throat chakra (Vishuddha in Sanskrit) is the fifth energy center of seven centers within the body. It's represented by the color blue and is located in where the throat is, in the center of the neck.
The throat chakra is responsible for speaking ability and communication. An imbalance in this chakra is commonly characterized by shyness, anxiety, or arrogance. People with a balanced throat chakra are typically well-spoken, direct, and provide clarity in communication.
5 healing crystals to awaken your Throat chakra
1. Blue Kyanite
Blue Kyanite is an amazing crystal companion for attunement. By dismantling blockages, Blue Kyanite allows for the self-expression that comes with an open throat chakra. Linking the higher and causal minds, this stone becomes a powerful aid for dispelling ignorance. This stone simultaneously promotes ascension, drawing the light body into the physical. This connection allows for one to see through illusion, and realize the part they’ve played along their journey, rather than chalking it up to fate.
2. Blue Chalcedony
When it comes to transmitting thoughts effectively, Blue Chalcedony is another incredible crystal to utilize. Blue Chalcedony eases self-doubt while calling for constructive inner reflection. This combination allows for open communication, and self-analysis which leads to better communication in the future. In addition, it absorbs negativity, allowing for communication to be relayed through goodwill.
3. Black Tourmaline in Quartz
Black Tourmaline in Quartz, or Tourmalinated Quartz is another amazing tool for Throat Chakra healing. Dubbed "the psychic vacuum cleaner", this crystal returns energy to an untainted state. Just as easy to work with as Clear Quartz, this stone is simple to program and work with. This crystal is also an ideal tool for this energy center given its ability to promote clear thinking, and keep one aligned with the spiritual path.
Amazonite is a stone known for harmony and communication. Amazonite helps with expressing personal truths without being overly emotional. Sleeping with this stone can aid in the surfacing of unconscious/subconscious tendencies, creating opportunities to be more self-aware. This stone also filters information combining it with intuition, allowing for clear-knowing. Assisting in manifesting universal love, this stone also connects with the heart chakra, thus promoting love as well as communication.
This crystal of insight, Sodalite, calls for the breakdown of contradictions. Stimulating latent genius, it enhances intuition, creativity, and analysis. This stone brings about eureka (aha) moments! Sodalite combines logic and intuition encouraging intuitive perception along with the verbalization of feelings. This crystal stimulates the release of old conditioning, enhancing self-esteem and self-trust to encourage shadow work without judgment.
Your throat chakra is responsible for how you express yourself and communicate your ideas, so it is important that you keep it in its optimal condition. Healing crystals are tools that can help you resonate with certain attributes or states of being which allow for an open and active energy center. With the opening and activation of the throat chakra, one will find it easier to manifest and co-create without the limitations of insecurity, or arrogance.Written by Brianna Colon for Good Juu Juu
