Before talking about healing stones, make sure you read the article on the chakras that eye posted in January of 2015
The 5th chakra is what we will be talking about today. Its color is blue. This chakra deals with the throat and its surrounding areas on every level; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. That is to say, that the 5th chakra is related to the throat, the larynx, the teeth, sore throat, strep throat, communication and anything related to the mouth and throat.
When the throat chakra is blocked it looks dull and it hardly spins when looking at it through the spiritual realm. You know your throat chakra is blocked when you have any ailment in the mouth, like the ones mentioned above but not limited to those. It is also easy to tell if your throat chakra is blocked if you have communication problems with others. If the chakra is not cleared one can even develop cancer. It is very important to clear all of your chakras for a healthy lifestyle: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Most throat chakra blockages begin with communication. Whether it is inner (your thoughts, how you feel about the efficiency of your communication, etc) or outter (how you actually communicate with self and others. Keep in mind that negative self talk will also block your throat chakra. If you gossip, laugh at others expense, have cruel jokes, don’t communicate your desires effectively, let others talk over you, over speak, don’t speak up when necessary, for example, are ways many of us block or clog our throat chakras.
There are easy ways to unblock your throat chakra. One way is by wearing the color blue around the throat area. This would include blue tops, blue earrings, and blue necklaces. Another is by speaking only positive things. Next, would be by thinking positively. Not allowing negative self talk is a huge one. Do not downplay yourself. Instead, encourage yourself. No one is perfect and we all have room to grow. With practice anything can be achieved! Know when to speak up and when not to engage in conversation. Let your desires and emotions be heard. Communicate them effectively and lovingly. Especially, with friends, family, coworkers,self and most definitely with your partner. Holding things in that should be communicated will have negative effects. The more you let hold it in, the worse it gets.
Here, eye will include various healing stones that eye sell to help one with the throat chakra. However, eye do not sell Indicolite or blue tourmaline at the moment. My favorite of the following is blue lace agate because it is, in my experiences, one of the best to assist one in bringing up and letting go things unsaid from the past. One of my clients purchased a blue lace agate and from the moment she received it (with personalized reiki) her throat started to tingle and she called her roommate into the room n started crying about things she was holding on to from her childhood. She spoke to her roommate about it for 2 days. On the third day, her throat no longer tingled and her throat chakra was clear. If you’re willing to put in the work, the stone will be a great asset to your healing and growth.
Eye created these descriptions with my knowledge of stones and information from “The Book of Stones” by Richard Simmons and Naisha Ahsian.
