Have you been unable to express yourself lately? Either you are hesitating or unable to find the right words.
Or you are the other way round… You can’t stop talking and hardly give others a chance to talk. You just don’t seem to like to quiet down and listen to others. If this is you, then your throat chakra energy is overloaded.
A few more self-check questions for you:
Do you feel people misunderstand you? Have you felt like you have been using negative words a fair bit too much or have noticed aggressive patterns in your behavior?
Physically, have you been experiencing throat pains, a sore throat, hearing problems, or perhaps stiffness around the neck and shoulder area?
If you have answered YES to some or all of these questions, your Throat Chakra is most likely BLOCKED.
But don’t fret because this does not mean that your Throat Chakra is blocked permanently. (phew!)
Here comes the GOOD NEWS! You can open your blocked throat chakra just by following one or more of the simple methods that we will share with you just in a bit.
But first, let’s talk about why opening the Throat Chakra is so important.
The Throat Chakra is the first of the three spiritual chakras in the chakra system. It can be seen as a gateway to reach our highest spiritual self. The Throat Chakra allows us to communicate with the world and is associated with authentic EXPRESSION of the self. When we are able to listen, speak and express ourselves from a place of trust and understanding, the Throat Chakra can help manifest our desires. In this way, the Throat Chakra allows us to speak our truth and live by it when it is in balance with all the other chakras.
Setting The ABUNDANCE Intention
Before you begin this process to unblock your chakra, it is essential that you first set your ABUNDANCE INTENTION. Saying a small prayer or affirmation about what you plan to accomplish sends out your intent to the Universe and this can make this journey to achieve your goals smooth for you.
This simple activity should not be overlooked! Our intentions and the Law of Attraction have the potential to harmonize our heart, mind, and body that transform our hopes into new realities. In doing so, we are able to attract an abundance of prosperity, health, and love into our lives.
At WonderSpark, we like to set our Abundance Intention before we start our Throat Chakra unblocking process.
⭐ ABUNDANCE INTENTION SETTING ⭐
Step 1: Put on WonderSpark Throat Chakra earrings
Step 2: Look into the mirror, focus on the color and symbol of the earrings
Step 3: Inhale and slowly exhale out all your worries (3x)
Step 4: Feel the energy of your Throat Chakra (the base of your throat)
Step 5: Let the universe know your wishes for life. How would it be for you when you no longer experience the problems you have?
Once you have set your abundance intention, you can choose one or more of the following methods to unblock your Throat Chakra.
Method 1: Daily Affirmations
Regularly repeating positive mantras will help you transform your negative thought patterns into positive ones, as well as balance your chakras by removing blockages and healing your body.
Think about how different your life would be if you were financially, physically, and emotionally secure... Can you see a life with no worries, and you finally get to savor life?
Visiting your affirmations on a daily basis will assist you in manifesting positive emotions. Another reason to make this a regular practice!
Remember, you can always come up with your own affirmations because only you know how you feel and what you want to accomplish from this ritual. You can say your affirmations out loud, write them down, or do both. However, for unblocking your Throat Chakra we recommend you use your voice and say them aloud especially while looking into the mirror.
If you are confused about what affirmations to use - you could start with one of the five below that you most associate with.
And don't forget to WRITE DOWN how you feel once you repeat your daily affirmations. You can also talk to yourself aloud or tell a friend how you feel. Like we said before, using your VOICE is recommended while working on your Throat Chakra realignment process. We can guarantee that you will definitely be astounded when you notice how your emotions change as time passes.
Method 2: The Chakra Yoga
Yoga is another excellent method that you can try to unblock your chakras. Moving your body will allow energy to flow more freely, which will allow your Throat Chakra to realign. Here's a yoga sequence we think you'll enjoy doing. 😊

Method 3: Cleansing Your Body with Crystals
Crystals are a natural technique to cleanse a chakra that has been blocked. By reactivating your body's natural energy flow, these crystals bring balance to your mind, body, and spirit. The Throat Chakra can be unblocked by wearing a crystal around your neck or if you prefer lying down, place a crystal at the base of your neck and breathe for a few minutes.
To help resolve the difficulties associated with this chakra, blue-colored stones are recommended. Turquoise is a crystal that is connected with water energy and can help in increasing your energy flow through the Throat Chakra. Apatite, Aquamarine, and Larimar are among the stones used to treat difficulties with this chakra. Which one is your favorite stone? 🤔

Did you know that eating certain foods and wearing or seeing a certain color can help open your Throat Chakra?
You might think it sounds ridiculous, but what have you got to lose by giving it a shot?
Here are few other things you can try:
To align your Throat Chakra, you can try adding the following to your diet in moderation:
- Liquids such as water, coconut water, raw honey, lemon, 100% fruit juices (with no added sugar), and herbal teas.
- Fruits that grow on trees such as apples, peaches, pears, apricots, and plums
2. Color Therapy
You could also try visualizing or wearing the color Blue. The throat chakra is represented by the color blue, which is associated with a pure, soothing, calming, and healing energy, and connects a person with the divine.
3. Sound Therapy
Since the Throat Chakra is represented by sound, you can either listen to nature sounds or singing bowls. You could use your own voice to laugh, shout into a pillow, hum, or sing in the car or the shower.
And always remember to SPEAK YOUR TRUTH. Sharing your thoughts with a friend or journaling will also prove helpful in standing up for what you believe in and doing so confidently.
Now that you read about the many techniques that can help you unblock your Throat Chakra, you must choose the method(s) that best suit you and make them a regular part of your routine at least three to four times a week.
Only by practicing consistently and maintaining a strong desire to manifest your intentions, will you be able to rejuvenate your Throat Chakra and begin attracting abundance into your life.
After about 4 weeks of work on your Throat Chakra, come back to take our "Which Chakra Is Blocked" question again to assess your progress and see whether you still need to continue your practice.
