Often called the Vishuddha, this chakra rests in the middle of your neck, right at the throat. It is intimately connected to your self-expression, so it affects (and is affected by) everything to do with communication. In other words, when your Throat chakra is open, you will be great at making yourself understood. You will be able to say what you really want to say, but with tact. You’ll know what you need, and be able to state it in a way that gets people to listen. This type of alignment in the Throat chakra has a wonderful influence on both your personal and professional lives, as good communication is vital in all significant relationships.
A blocked Throat chakra may look like:
- Difficulty saying what you want to
- Lacking the vocabulary to describe your emotions
- Feeling like you’re holding on to too many secrets
- A sense that people don’t know the “real you”
Meditating is a wonderful way to focus on this chakra to help open and balance it. Use our Vishuddha incense sticks to direct your attention and intention of working on this energy center.
