A balanced throat chakra:
The throat chakra in balance allows us to speak and be heard. We can listen to others and respond well. Our individuality is fully expressed, as is our truth. We have the ability to accurately communicate the truth of our experience, to witness and meet another’s truth, and to approach life creatively and effectively. This chakra is also the center for creativity. Creativity is a consciously willed process, we are making our world at each and every moment through our actions, expression, and communication. In the same way, we are constantly creating new ways of approaching life.
