When the energy is flowing in this chakra one is able to communicate effectively and truthfully with due consideration for both themselves and others. Physically it is associated with the thyroid.
Here is a short meditation (anywhere from about 5 minutes and up) that can be useful in bolstering the flow of energy in this chakra
Colour meditation for the throat chakra
Sit upright in a comfortable chair, feet flat on the floor and hands open in your lap.
Close your eyes, breath in deeply, imagining your breath reaching every part of your body. As you breath out feel any tension melting away.
For the next 2 – 3 minutes breath in a clear vibrant light blue. As you inhale, sense the colour blue is opening up your ability to communicate clearly and cleanly, without emotion clouding your speech.
As you deeply breath in the brilliant blue, sense any fear of speaking or being heard dropping away, and sense your own energy in this area of your body flowing freely, helping you to communicate freely. Because it is directly above the heart chakra, I like to think of this energy helping me to speak my heart’s truth 🙂
Spend a few breaths (maybe 2-3 minutes) sensing what is going on in your body and your mind. As thoughts come up, just let them go and refocus on sensing the positive energy.
When you are ready, stand up, stretch and go about the rest of your day
