Chakra Function: The throat (5th) chakra, as the name suggests, is concerned with communication, expression, and speaking the truth. It's also associated with the ability to sing from the Heart and communicate with the Divine. As the first of the enlightenment chakras, the throat chakra is a powerful spiritual center that connects deeply with the voice of the soul: both your own soul and that of others. It is also possible to learn to connect with spirit guides, ancestors, and angels through the throat chakra.
Issues of the Throat Chakra: If the throat chakra is imbalanced, awareness is limited and anxiety and restlessness take over. Other emotional imbalances include feelings of rejection, repression, and an inability to speak clearly and/or truthfully. Physical symptoms of imbalance include sore throat, thyroid difficulties, headaches, ear infections, teeth and gum problems, mouth ulcers, and voice loss. When the throat chakra is functioning optimally, there is a sense of having the ability to peacefully and courageously to speak your truth. There is also a sense of personal visions and creative dreams manifesting effortlessly. Divine communication is another aspect of the throat chakra which includes receiving Divine guidance and not asking for things that are wanted yet detrimental to spiritual growth.
