Overactive Throat Chakra

When your throat chakra is overactive, you are your own (and others’) worst critic.It is important to understand the signs associated with an overactive throat chakra. Being able to recognize throat chakra issues is key to cleansing and learning how to balance the fifth chakra.

Signs of Overactivity in the Throat Chakra

Situated in the base of the throat, the fifth chakra is considered home to self-expression and your ability to communicate. It also serves as the “seat” of emotion.An overactive throat chakra can significantly impact your relationships and ability to function in life.

Common physical symptoms of an overactive throat chakra can include mouth and jaw problems, chronic sore throat, and colds. Additional physical ailments associated with an overactive throat chakra include:

  • ear aches

  • neck pain

  • laryngitis

When balanced, the throat chakra fosters clear, concise communication. You have no issues being honest regardless of the situation or company you’re in. However, when the throat chakra becomes too active the complete opposite happens.

Speaking rudely, out of turn, or maliciously are common indicators your fifth chakra needs attention. Looking down on others, you become highly critical of minute details. The slightest, most innocent comment from someone may strike you as intentionally rude. You may even speak negatively about yourself, or others, to the point it borders on verbal abuse.

Additional common non-physical signs of imbalance include:

  • gossiping

  • non-stop talking

  • arrogance

  • condescension

Cleansing and Balancing an Overactive Throat Chakra

The calming color blue is commonly associated with confidence, truth, wisdom, and faith. All of which are also attributes tied directly and indirectly to characteristics associated with the throat chakra.

In most cases, incorporating positive changes into your lifestyle can help immensely, including eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. When simple lifestyle changes aren’t enough, consider introducing aromatherapy, yoga, or sound therapy, such as singing, to your situation — yes, singing — even if it’s just in the shower. Exercising the vocal cords can dispel blockages in the fifth chakra.

Depending on the severity of your chakra imbalance, consulting with an energy healer is also something to consider.
