Throat chakra (Vishuddha) is the fifth chakra of the spiritual body located near the region of the throat and is associated with speech, hearing, and communication.
It helps in developing powerful communication skills, expressing yourself authentically without any doubt or fear, and generating the confidence to speak the truth.
Not only that, but it also heightens your ability to think creatively by sharpening the mind. It gives you the power to speak your mind by providing clarity in your thoughts.
Effective communication is the key to success in both personal and professional life, and healing your throat chakra by practicing affirmations enables you to achieve that.
How Does A Dysfunctional Throat Chakra Impact You?
There are two types of throat chakra imbalances: overactive and underactive. If the energy flow within the throat chakra is in excess, the chakra is said to be overactive, and if the energy flow is less, it is said to be underactive. Both of these conditions are undesirable and have their own associated problems.
Energy imbalance within the throat chakra can cause a wide variety of problems; some of them can manifest in the form of physical ailments while the others can be psychological.
Some of the physical symptoms that you might experience are as follows:
- Thyroid problems
- Soreness in the throat.
- Dizziness, tiredness, and fatigue.
- Headaches and migraines.
- Pain in the shoulder and at the base of the neck.
- Restlessness and anxiety.
- Mouth ulcers.
- Dental Issues.
Symptoms of underactive throat chakra:
- You feel scared of expressing your opinions to others for the fear of being judged, mocked, and ridiculed.
- You have weak focus and concentration.
- You’re unable to keep yourself grounded.
- You suppress your true thoughts and feelings.

Affirmations To Heal The Throat Chakra Blockage
Practicing affirmations is a great way to clear blockages in the throat chakra. These affirmations can either be spoken out loud or silently repeated in the mind.
If you feel that your throat chakra needs healing, I would suggest you practice repeating affirmations every day for maximum benefit.
Although, you can practice affirmations any time of the day, but in my personal experience, it is best to repeat them either in the morning (first thing) or in the evening before going to bed, or both.
Morning time is said to be the best because we are well-rested after a good night’s sleep, and our mind is fresh. However, there’s no hard and fast rule to it.
The most important thing to understand here is that you should keep repeating these affirmations with full conviction, even if you don’t believe in some of them initially.
Here is a list of 20 powerful throat chakra affirmations that you can practice every day to heal your throat chakra.
