Throat Chakra
Day 2
Parts of the Body Governed
Symptoms of Healthy, Over Active and Closed Chakra

The Throat Chakra mainly focuses around the neck area up to the ears and including the arms and hands. These areas encompass the highest forms of communication which are speaking, hearing and writing.

The thyroid gland is the main gland affected by this chakra. Other specific areas that can be affected by an overactive or closed throat chakra are the throat (of course), jaw, trachea, vocal chords, neck vertebrae, mouth, teeth, gums, esophagus, lungs, arms and hands. Pretty much everything needed to communicate. Now there are forms of communication that do not require these things and are in the form of body language. Body language is connected to many chakras and can be all that is needed to communicate how someone wants to respond to a situation. Body language is used in Forensic Science to help law enforcement determine if someone is being truthful or not. Of course it is not enough to prove guilt without a shadow of doubt but it can be very useful. I believe many empaths use this without even knowing they are.

Keeping these things in mind, below are symptoms that can occur when this chakra is unbalanced as well as closed. I have also included many emotional and mental difficulties we can experience.

Let’s take a look at what a HEALTHY chakra looks like first.

The State of Mind of someone with a healthy open chakra speaks confidently and is not afraid to share their opinion. They also listen very well and show signs they are interested in conversations. They often times express themselves creatively and are usually very good at giving good advice. Also, they are not afraid of their weaknesses and people often respect them for that.

The Physical Health of someone with a healthy open chakra has a healthy thyroid and a strong, confident voice.

A lot of times, someone with a strong state of mind can overcome any obstacle with physical difficulties so your state of mind is key.

Now let’s move on to symptoms of an OVERACTIVE chakra.

The State of Mind of someone with an overactive chakra can speak over others, speak rudely or maliciously, gossip, talk non-stop, be arrogant, be condescending, be over opinionated and sometimes yell a lot. Another sign of an overactive chakra is not wanting to listen to others opinions and always wanting to do things your way no matter the cost.

The Physical Symptoms of someone with a closed chakra can include: sore throat, ear aches, frequent headaches, gum and teeth issues, mouth ulcers, swollen glands, hoarseness, thyroid problems, laryngitis, jaw problems, TMJ and neck and shoulder pain.

Last but not least symptoms of a CLOSED chakra.

The State of Mind of someone with a closed chakra can be unable to express themselves, may often times be misunderstood, be wishy washy, unreliable, truthful with themselves and others and sometimes others find that person giving mixed messages. Until this chakra is balanced their life will probably remain the same with things never working out making them feel stuck.

The Physical Symptoms of someone with a closed chakra can include: sore throat, ear aches, frequent headaches, gum and teeth issues, mouth ulcers, swollen glands, hoarseness, thyroid problems, laryngitis, jaw problems, TMJ and neck and shoulder pain.

Now I know that could be a lot of you… I’ve even got some of those symptoms but just because we are suffering from these types of ailments does not mean that getting your chakra aligned and balanced will cure everything. Your state of mind plays a big role in that as well.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms whether they are physical or mind related, PLEASE seek professional medical help as this information is not a diagnoses by any means. While working on balancing your chakras is important… so is letting your doctor know what problems you are facing.

If you are a Reiki Practitioner, knowing these things can help with which chakras to work with the most.

So tomorrow, we will take a look at what crystals and stones will aid in the balancing of this chakra.

In Love & Light Always,
