For someone that talks so much I had no idea that I could even have an issue with my throat chakra. To my surprise I had more work to do in this area that I previously had thought. This chakra is located just below the larynx in the throat. When it's open and balanced you find it easy to communicate with others and speak your mind. You don't second guess yourself or keep things inside. When there's a blockage exactly the opposite occurs.
Represented by the color blue the throat chakra in sanskrit is called Vishuddha and literally means purification. A blockage in your throat chakra usually comes from unexpressed feelings and shows up in the form of a cold or flu, sinus or ear infection. The thyroid is also greatly affected by the throat chakra. This is a common area for blockages and many blockages my stem from early childhood.
