Open throat chakra
People whose throat chakra is open are able to express themselves and their truth freely. They can openly express and express their feelings, thoughts and attitudes, in the full acceptance of their own weaknesses. They are especially good listeners, because they can understand not only themselves, but others from the higher perspective as well. Also they can improvise well and are open to any kind of inspiration. These people talk in clarity and can put things in a nutshell in a nutshell. They love to communicate and do not shy away from a debate – it widens the horizon. They can clearly and unequivocally perceive their wishes and are able to manifest them in their lives and fulfill them. In addition, these people have an undisturbed expression of their intuition / soul and are trustingly guided by their inner guidance. They are authentic to themselves and to others and gain integrity with their souls. The identification with the personality ceases and gives way to an opening for the unclouded expression of the soul.

Disorders of the throat chakra
The throat chakra processes our self-expression as being. Painful experiences in this regard or a lack of such expression can lead to a blockade of the throat chakra. Particularly difficult living conditions between the age of 16 and 21 can inhibit the development of the throat chakra, so that those affected can not clearly show themselves to the outside.
Mental effects of a blocked throat chakra
In people with a blocked throat chakra, self-expression and communication with the environment is disturbed. Neither are they able to communicate needs, desires, opinions, ideas and ideas, nor are they able to listen to others. Often behind it is the fear to show oneself. Fear is in every respect its barrier to contact others – fear of criticism, fear of rejection, fear of negative reactions, fear of losing control. These fears often lead to a sophisticated network of lies – to oneself and others – or to constant exaggerations, to bizarre forms of self-presentation, so as not to show anyone his true nature.
Also, those affected hardly have access to their inner voice and no confidence in their own intuition. They have little to no self-confidence, seem jammed and often indifferent. In extreme cases, they suffer from speech disorders such as mumbling and stuttering. As their creative self-expression is disturbed too, they often take their world colorless and poor, for lack of their ability to dream, to try, to improvise and to develop ideas. The pain of the soul not being able to express itself is reflected on the psychological level in regret, self-judgment and excessive hardness in self-judgment.
Physical effects of a blocked throat chakra
On the physical level, a disturbance of the throat chakra in the following problems can be expressed: recurrent inflammation of the pharynx or sinuses, the oral cavity and the gums, over- or under-function of the thyroid and concomitant listlessness and / or nervousness, problems with the teeth and Pain in the area of the shoulders, neck and cervical spine. Also, osteoporosis may indicate a disturbed calcium balance, as a result of a disease of the parathyroid glands.
Open throat chakra
The healing of the throat chakra begins where one’s own inner truth is denied or distorted by ego identities. Recognizing and accepting one’s own reality will help to give expression to it bit by bit – until, in the end, we can live and express our highest truth of our soul in every situation.
This includes learning to distinguish one’s own inner messages from the adapted messages of others, eg the parents. But it is especially important to uncover your own lies and dishonesty – the points at which we lose our authenticity and integrity, or pretend to imitate certain role models. Relieving yourself from the fear of rejection, criticism, incomprehension, mockery, or similar negative reactions and really standing by yourself has an extremely liberating effect on the throat chakra.
Sound healing through voice, drama, pantomime and rhetoric training can, in my experience, help open up a wider range of expression. It is also helpful to consciously perceive opportunities to speak in front of other people or in groups and to observe the rising feelings. Everything that makes our voice sound, such as singing and talking, is healing for a blocked throat chakra. The support of energy work, stones, flavors, and a certain diet is also part of the healing work.
