There are seven chakras located along the spine that affect our bodies and our inner selves:
Believed to be made up of pure energy, each chakra is responsible for a different element and function of our body that affects the way we live. When our chakras are all in alignment with each other and working in harmony, we are able to reach full harmony within ourselves. This means that when our chakras are unblocked and are all in alignment, we are able to be our best self. Chakra blocks can cause us to be tired, irritable, or to just have a feeling of being mentally blocked. When we are able to align all of our chakras, we are able to unlock the best aspects of ourselves so that we can live a full and happy life, living in harmony with it.

If you’re new to the chakra system, you may not know what each chakra is responsible for or how they all work. The throat chakra (commonly referred to as “vishuddha” which means “pure”) is the fifth chakra from the bottom, and is strongly associated with sound and communication. The location of the throat chakra is most commonly viewed as the base of the throat, where all communication begins. The throat chakra is also most commonly represented by a symbol of a circle with sixteen petals and is usually represented with the color blue, or a smoky lavender.
The throat chakra works with our communication, our expression of our true selves, and our ability to create and develop our purpose. The power of the throat chakra goes beyond just realizing our vocation and expression, it also helps us to voice these thoughts into the world to speak our truth. The ability to realize and speak about ourselves authentically in the world is what makes this chakra so important, and why keeping it balanced is beneficial.
Keeping your throat chakra balanced is extremely important, because it is the chakra responsible for helping us to communicate our true feelings and intentions. So how do we keep our throat chakra balanced, or help rebalance it after it has become unbalanced? Knowing how to keep your chakras balanced, or how to unblock them is essential to obtaining complete harmony within yourself.
First, we must understand some of the causes that can make our throat chakra become unbalanced or blocked. A serious argument with a friend or loved one can, gossiping, having a traumatic experience as a child, and many other factors can all cause our fifth chakra to be knocked off balance. But how do we know when our throat chakra is out of balance? When the throat chakra isn’t balanced, a person might experience insecurities, the need to gossip, or feelings of shyness.

When saying affirmations, you don’t have to say them all at once. You can just stick with the ones that seem to resonate with you. Saying affirmations daily doesn’t mean just listing them off, it can just mean saying one or two to yourself in the mirror when you’re getting ready. Beginning your day with affirmations is a good way to start your day on a positive note. Whether you say one or ten affirmations a day, each affirmation will help to start your day with a positive mindset.
The most important thing to remember when saying affirmations is to mean what you say. If you believe what you are saying, then your chakras will unblock over time (or continue to remain unblocked) and you will be able to live your best life and reach your full potential. This list of affirmations isn’t all the affirmations you can say, and it doesn’t mean you have to say all of them. Pick the ones you believe and tell them to yourself daily!
