Main Function

The throat chakra is our communication energy center and one of its main function is to offer us a direct connection to Spirit; once we arrive to Earth its important that a line of communication remain open and this is possible via this chakra centre (if energy is not blocked). The throat chakra acts a two-way tunnel for Ether to flow between the non physical realm and our 3D physical world. supporting communication between humans and Spirit.  In addition to facilitating communication between realms, this chakra supports us as we “speak things into existence” (everything that exists in our physical world first began forming in the non physical realm, as pure vibrational sound- someone vibrated it into existence). Opening the throat chakra and resonating fully with the ether element helps us to reconnect and communicate with our Higher Self, our Ancestors and the Collective Unconscious.

As for the role of the throat chakra in our day-to-day physical world, it supports us as we master areas of our lives such as self-expression, honesty, willpower, creativity, sound and the exchange of communication. Below are signs  of an imbalance and a balanced throat chakra:

Signs of Imbalance

During early childhood years we are each met with challenges to include social problems, family related problems and issues at school which lead to difficulties remaining connected to Self. When our connection to Self or our connection to Source is not nurtured it leads to disconnection to our power source. Depending on how traumatic a persons early childhood is, they will most likely begin to hold negative energy (emotions, memories, beliefs) in their root, sacral, solar plexus, or heart chakra. Since these are the “personal chakras” they help us to govern our earthly existence and so holding negative energy in these centres will create imbalances within our earthly connections and environments. When energy is blocked to the personal chakras it creates blockages within the throat chakra which can often manifest as:

  1. Stuttering
  2. Fear of Speaking
  3. Fear of self-expression
  4. Disorders in the physical organ governed by this chakra such as having a sore throat or tonsillitis
