The throat Chakra can be thought of as a bridge placed at a physical point on the neck where the body narrows and concentrates all of these energies to pass information up to the brain. It is a bridge too in the sequential development of the inner aspects of Chakra energies, since once the throat Chakra is open, access to a different land, another side of the river of life, the spiritual realms is achievable.
This Chakra’s associated nature element is Ether, a nebulous energy mysteriously supporting other dimensions of soul and spirit. The throat Chakra is linked primarily to the thyroid and parathyroid glands in the body. These can secrete hormones for normal human growth and the metabolism of calcium. The workings of the ear nose and throat, with the senses of hearing and speech, and to some extent the respiratory system are also connected to this Chakra.
So if there are imbalances in any of these areas, which will show up as disease or discomfort, the throat Chakra will need to receive healing.
If this Chakra is blocked it can result in depression and may even make a person feels suicidal. If you’re very depressed it may help to discuss your problems with a qualified councillor By talking things through, you encourage the self-expression aspect of the throat Chakra.
