Our throat chakra is the source of our communication and self-expression; the state of this chakra impacts our faith and authentic voice. Known by the Sanskrit name Vishuddha, it is located at the hollow of the collarbone. When this chakra is in harmony we follow our dreams and speak our truth. Consider using these crystals if you are feeling symptoms such as a raspy or sore throat, gum difficulties, TMJ, or swollen glands. Emotional symptoms that our throat chakra needs work include clouded judgment, feeling silenced, and difficulty making decisions.
