The throat chakra governs how well you communicate to yourself, and to others. It has other functions too, but by all accounts, communication is its major :). Since humans are social beings, it’s important to have a balanced throat chakra, to ensure effective communication. So, how can you tell if your throat chakra is balanced? Simple, just pay attention to how you feel and act.
The balanced state
When your throat chakra is balanced, you can easily express yourself, and others have an easy time understanding you. You make your point without talking too much and boring your audience. You speak the truth, and others pick the truth vibe coming from you – and may even ask you to mediate their conflicts, as they can feel you can be a good and impartial mediator.
Overactive throat chakra
If you speak more than you listen, you probably have an overactive throat chakra. Remember the old adage “you have two ears and one mouth, use them in this proportion” (attributed to philosopher Zeno). Others see you as domineering and criticizing, and tend to “block their ears” when you try to speak to them, meaning that they will just ignore whatever you say. You over-react, are stubborn in your beliefs and try to impose them onto others – without success :).
Weak throat chakra
When your throat chakra has too little energy, you find it difficult to express yourself, and find yourself surrendering to others more often than you’d like. You’re afraid to speak in public, cannot express your creative side, and tend to swallow your feelings. Others see you as timid, dependent, weak, and even devious.
