I was getting ready to write this blog post, which is about the Throat Chakra, which is all about communication, speech, and writing. Upon thinking about this I realized that I don’t see myself as a writer *horrified gasp* I mean, I write a lot, I’ve always written a lot, I started my first fantasy novel when I was 13, I’ve written a gazillion fanfics, I write blog posts and work on e-books every single week.
Holy crap, I’m a freakin’ writer.
I may never publish a book (funny fact here, if I did ever publish a book I’d want it to be a romance novel :P) but I am still a writer and I love it. Maybe the reason I haven’t run into writer’s block is because I refused to call myself one, oh noes! Speaking of Writer’s Block, working with the throat chakra is a great way to overcome it.
The throat chakra is located at your throat and represented by the color blue.Physically it governs the thyroid, mouth, teeth, jaw, and the respiratory system. The throat chakra is also where we communicate with others from. In this chakra we hold our self expression, it is where we speak from, dance from, sing from, write from and create art from.
Our truth comes from the throat chakra.
When this chakra is open you can communicate easily and effectively with the people around you, you embrace your inner truth and creativity and you are able to believe in your artistic abilities! People will be able to see you as open, honest, and someone that they can trust. In the aspect of self-love it governs how you talk to yourself, so make sure you’re being nice!
When your throat chakra is blocked you might have a lot of difficulty expressing how you feel. You might feel like your feelings and emotions don’t matter so you won’t often voice them. You might feel like you aren’t “authentic” because you’ll have trouble embracing the core of who you are. You also might lie because lying is easier than speaking about how you truly feel. Not speaking up for yourself when you need to might also be a sign that your chakra is blocked.
On the reverse side your chakra might be over-active, which means you gossip all of the time, you don’t know when to listen, every conversation is about you, and you don’t know that there are times when a little bit of tact to get your point across.
