The Throat Chakra

The Throat Chakra is located at the base of the throat and is associated with
expressing oneself.

This is related to communication and speaking up, as well as expression through dance, art and song. It's about bringing to the outside what's within. 

Expression is related to receiving, "Ask and ye shall receive". The Throat Chakra can shut down if you felt unseen or unheard as a child, or were raised in an environment where it didn't feel safe to speak up. Grief or unexpressed feelings such as anger or fear also close down this chakra. 

Integrity is a keyword when it comes to the Throat Chakra. Being able to express your individuality, even if you risk standing out from others, is essential to having a good sense of self. Harnessing your will to express your highest truth is the aim of this chakra.
