Your Spiritual Self-Care Code:
Balance Your Throat Chakra
The throat chakra is located just beneath the throat. It is the center of truth, communication, freedom, expression, and listening. When the throat chakra is out of balance, it’s common to feel like you can’t fully express yourself, frustration, like your holding onto excuses, lack of clarity and hope.
Finding Your Voice
Self-expression is something so many of us struggle with. Many of us were raised to be seen and not heard. For women especially there’s this enormous unspoken fear that speaking your mind makes you seem catty, rude, or worse.
But stifling your voice when you have something important to say creates imbalance over time. The world needs to hear your unique message. It’s not up to you to make sure that everyone agrees, but it is up to you to find the courage to share your voice.
Remind yourself often that your message matters, whether it’s communicating with loved ones, your boss, colleagues, or a larger group of people— the principles remain the same.
Overcoming your fear is the hardest part. We’re all responsible for our own reactions, the people that truly love you will communicate back with honor and respect. Speak the truth with love.
Other Ways to Encourage Self-Expression
Sometimes the solution isn’t as simple as courageously speaking your truth.
Sometimes there’s deeper, long-term, self-care work that needs to be done.
Here are some simple practices to balance your throat chakra:
- Keep a journal— Write without a filter, let your thoughts flow freely on the page.
- Sing— It might seem silly but singing your heart out really does help to clear throat chakra blocks. Whenever you’re feeling blocked and like you can’t freely communicate, go for a drive or hop in the shower and sing your heart out.
- Meditate and visualize blue light— Blue is the color of the throat chakra, it’s a healing color for this energy center when you’re feeling disconnected and closed off. Sit in stillness and try to visualize a blue light surrounding and emanating from your throat. Focus on that light and let your fears melt away.
Try using some essential oils that help balance the throat chakra. Peppermint, eucalyptus and chamomile are all great options to add to your diffuser or simply rub a few drops into your hands and take 10 deep breaths whenever you’re feeling scattered.
Throat Chakra Nutrition
The best foods for the throat chakra are those that are soothing for the throat and that nourish the thyroid.
- Fresh juice
- Fruits and vegetables with a high water content
Real World Self-Care
Self-care is a major buzzword in the stressed out world of today. It’s the kind of blanket statement advice you hear everywhere, with few strategies around what it really means and how to do it.
At Radiant Botanics, we believe in real world self-care. The idea that self-care doesn’t have to be 2 hour trips to the spa and vacations in Bali. It can be simple, and still incredibly effective.
Something as mundane as putting on hand cream and taking a few deep breaths with your eyes closed. Choosing the salad or a hearty soup over the chilli cheese fries. Going for a 10-minute walk when you’re feeling overwhelmed. All of these things are real world acts of self-care that bring you back to balance and make life more joyful.
Incorporate more of this kind of self-care and you’ll feel more grounded, safe, and supported with each day that passes.
