Comments: If you were traumatized between the ages of 16-21, 46-51 or 76-81, you may have an unbalanced Fifth Chakra.
The Fifth Chakra is about speaking to others in a kind and loving manner. It’s about diplomacy, truth, integrity and our vocation. It’s about feeling equal with others (not superior or inferior).
Are you over-weight? Over-weight persons may find their Throat Chakra imbalance manifests as over-eating. People will often stuff food down their throats rather than risk open communication on risky or potentially painful issues–such as expressing their true feelings.
Are you the quiet type? Who may go days without speaking more than a handful of words? Do you fear you’ll put your foot in it? Say the wrong thing at the wrong time? So you don’t speak at all?
Or are you the type who needs to dominate conversations? Do you never stop talking? Do you deeply fear what might happen if you do stop talking?
If your speech puts others down (even in the most subtle ways), you may have a Fifth Chakra imbalance. Do people look afraid of you? Fear to confide in you? Fear to be alone and intimate with you?
Do you find you never laugh? Or have you lost the ability to laugh? Do you lack a sense of humor? Or does your sense of humor inflict pain on others?
Do you hate noise, even music? Is your singing voice not as good as it used to be?
Are you obsessed with truth and integrity? Or conversely, often tell untruths or exaggerate the truth to make yourself feel superior?
This Chakra also rules the ability to communicate with spirits (Channeling) as well as Clair-audience (hearing spirits). If you’d like to promote those activities or be able to turn them “off”, stones for this Chakra may help.
Physical symptoms of an imbalanced Fifth Chakra may include problems with the Thyroid gland, ears (hearing included), eyes, sinuses, throat, teeth.
Therapy: Chakra Therapy might include laying the proper gemstone upon the Fifth Chakra for 5-25 minutes. You may find surrounding yourself with the Scents of the Fifth Chakra helpful. Since this is the Chakra of music, you may find playing the music of your choice helpful when working with this Chakra. Visualize a Bright Light Blue Vortex of light in the shape of a flower emanating slightly upward from your throat. Visualize speaking to others in a kind and loving way and being spoken to in the same way. Imagine this Blue Light sending away all negativity, all feelings of superiority and untruths. When you feel cleansed, ask the Blue Light to bring in the ability to communicate in ways that draw persons to you, to bring in the abundant creative energy of the cosmos, telepathy, and intuition–pulling it in. Let the Light Blue Flower expand and grow in power. Then close the petals and keep the power inside to be drawn upon as needed.
Mantras: “I am in the brotherhood of man, neither better nor worse than any man I meet.”
“I listen. I speak.”
“Om” (The familiar chant)
