We have seven main chakras in our energetic body. Each chakra has a different purpose and we can learn to work with them in different ways.
The throat chakra is the 5th main chakra and it is represented by the colour blue.
In this article, I will delve into the colour of the throat chakra and how you can work with blue crystals to clear blockages.
I will also talk more about exactly what the throat chakra does and how to recognise when the energy isn’t flowing through it as it should.
What Colour Is The Throat Chakra?
As mentioned above, the throat chakra is blue in colour. As such, it can be helpful working with blue crystals or just the colour blue in general if you need to unblock this chakra.
What Does The Throat Chakra Do?
The throat chakra, which is located in the neck area, is responsible for our communication.
A healthy throat chakra will allow us to speak our truth and express ourselves clearly.
It also allows us to use our voices creatively and professionally – for singing or public speaking, for instance.
A blocked throat chakra, however, can cause issues.
How To Know If Your Throat Chakra Is Blocked
A blocked throat chakra can result in your becoming unusually quiet and reserved. It can prevent you from achieving self-expression and it can leave you feeling nervous about speaking your truth.
If your throat chakra is blocked you may be fearful of speaking up in front of others, especially in circumstances where public speaking is needed. You may also find yourself tongue-tied.
People who suffer from social anxiety may also find their blocked throat chakra is contributing to their problems.
There are a number of physical symptoms associated with a blocked throat chakra too. The most obvious is a sore throat or a raspy voice, but symptoms can extend beyond the immediate area.
Those with a blocked throat chakra commonly experience shoulder aches and pains, gum disease, dental problems, mouth ulcers, sinus or ear problems, and even thyroid troubles.
Remember that if you experience any physical symptoms, it’s important to speak to your doctor. But, that being said, ensuring energy is flowing through the throat chakra can be very helpful.
How Do I Know If My Throat Chakra Is Overactive?
As well as being blocked, it is also possible for the throat chakra to be overactive.
An overactive throat chakra may be present in someone who talks excessively or even in someone who stutters.
If you have a tendency to gossip, then this might be due to your throat chakra.
Someone who speaks particularly loudly, finds it difficult to listen to others, or has a habit of interrupting people when they are speaking may also have an overactive throat chakra.
How Do I Heal My Throat Chakra?
There are a number of ways you can heal your throat chakra and ensure energy is flowing through as it should.
You can go to a Reiki practitioner for a full treatment. The Reiki practitioner will ensure you have no energy blockages and that your chakras are in good order.
But, you can also work on your throat chakra yourself to ensure it isn’t blocked or overactive.
One simple thing you can do is to just use blue more in your everyday life – that could mean putting on a blue necklace or a blue scarf with the intent of it resonating with your throat chakra.
You can sing or use neck stretches to open up the chakra and allow energy to flow efficiently.
One of the most useful methods you can try at home is to meditate with a throat chakra stone.
I’ve included a list of the best crystals for the throat chakra below. Select one that you are drawn to, lie down, and place it gently on the throat chakra.
Meditate on the problem you are facing and focus your attention on the crystal cleansing the chakra. Imagine beautiful blue energy flowing clearly in the throat area.
Throat Chakra Stones
There are a wide variety of crystals that you can use to support your throat chakra – many of these are blue in colour as this works with the energetic colour of this chakra.
The following throat chakra stones tend to resonate best:
- Blue Calcite
- Blue Topaz
- Lapis Lazuli
- Blue Lace Agate
- Blue Chalcedony
- Blue Apatite
- Blue Kyanite
As mentioned above, you can use these crystals to meditate with – placing a small tumblestone on the throat.
But, you can also wear these crystals in necklace form if you want regular contact with the throat chakra.
You can also wear them in the form of other jewellery or carry a tumblestone or a palm stone with you to use when you need extra support for the throat area.
The throat chakra is the 5th chakra and it is the home of our communication. It is represented by the colour blue and we can work closely with this colour to ensure the energy is flowing correctly through the throat chakra.
A blocked throat chakra can result in shyness, and difficulty opening up and speaking your truth to others.
It’s also possible to suffer from an overactive throat chakra.
Regardless of whether you have a blocked or overactive throat chakra, you can work with the crystals mentioned in this article to make sure the energy is flowing correctly.
You can also just welcome more blue into your life to support your throat chakra – why not try wearing blue clothing, jewellery or makeup and see what difference this has on the throat chakra?
