The throat chakra is the energy center associated with self-expression and communication. Positioned at the base of the throat, the fifth chakra is also considered the “seat” of emotion. Life experiences may result in chakra imbalance and block the energy flowing through this energy center. Here are some tips to opening your throat chakra and restore balance.

When do you need to open your throat chakra?

Known as the Vishuddha chakra, it governs all areas of the mouth, jaw, throat, and thyroid gland. When the throat chakra is imbalanced, you may experience:

  • hoarseness
  • sore throat
  • thyroid problems
  • laryngitis
  • neck pain

Emotional signs your throat chakra may need opening can include:

  • depression
  • inability to express yourself
  • anxiety
  • aggression
  • lack of self-esteem

How to Open your Throat Chakra

Associated the the color blue, the throat chakra enables you to discover yourself and speak with wisdom and honesty regardless of the situation or company you are in. When the fifth chakra is in need of healing, there are several simple steps and exercises you can do to strengthen and restore chakra balance.

Using Chakra Colors: Be Blue

Using chakra colors to support or stimulate the fifth chakra opens up a whole array of possibilities. For example, incorporating the color blue into your decor at home and work is a nice, subtle way to bring focus to the throat chakra. The calming effect of this color of wisdom and honesty can help open up and heal a blocked fifth chakra. Wearing precious or semi-precious blue stones is a great boost for chakra healing and balance. Meditating on the color blue also helps alleviate throat chakra imbalance.

Cleanse with Water

Make a conscious effort to drink more water throughout the day. Not only does water help keep you hydrated, it also helps to cleanse the throat chakra allowing for healthy energy flow.

Eat More Fruit

Add apples, peaches, lemons and limes to your diet to cleanse and activate the throat chakra.

Clear the Air

At-home aromatherapy can help dispel negativity and restore balance to the chakras. Consider introducing one or a combination of these scents to heal and activate your fifth energy center:

  • jasmine
  • rosemary
  • sandalwood
  • calendula
  • ylang ylang

Talk It Out

Talk openly with close friends and family. Make it a point to be open and honest with all you say. Simply speaking in a heartfelt way can work wonders to strengthen and balance the throat chakra.

Write It Down
Learning how to express yourself without censoring or editing can be valuable. Practice mindful self-expression by journaling. Get it all out on paper and let it sit, then revisit what you have written at a later time.


As the chakra of self-expression, singing can help dispel blockages, activate, and balance the fifth chakra. If you are too shy, humming is also an option. Just be sure to get those vocal cords vibrating with sound.

Let It Be

Letting go is difficult. Holding on to things over which you have no control can lead to resentment, guilt, and anger — all of which contribute to an imbalance of the throat chakra.

Opening Yoga Poses for the Throat Chakra

Yoga for the throat chakra primarily focuses on simple neck movements, such as moving you head from side to side, can help ease tension that can block the throat chakra.

Believe it or not, throat chakra blockages can be initiated by or contribute to blockages elsewhere in the chakra system. Alleviate physical and emotional signs of throat chakra imbalance by doing simple yoga poses each day. To open up and activate the throat chakra, give one of these yoga poses a try:

  • Camel (Ustrasana)
  • Plow (Halasana)
  • Bridge (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana)
  • Fish (Matsyasana)
  • Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana)
