    Chakra Healing

    When you think of the effects that food has on your body, it’s likely that you immediately think of the physical impacts; through conscious food choices, you can incorporate food into your diet that might help you lose or gain weight and/or muscle.

    But your food choices don’t just affect your physical self; they have a profound impact on your mental, emotional, and spiritual self as well. In fact, your mind, body, and spirit are all affected every single day by your food intake in ways that you may not even see.

    That’s why intentionally choosing food that works with your internal energy is so important: because the effects extend beyond your physical self and digestive system and have an impact on your entire well-being.

    Below, you’ll find a list of healing foods for each of your body’s energy centers along with a handy chart you can print or save to your phone. If you want to connect with a particular chakra, incorporate foods into your snacks and meals that correspond with that chakra. Be intentional with this practice. For instance, if you’re connecting with your root chakra and have added sweet potatoes to one of your meals, set the intention to connect with your root chakra before you start eating. As you eat, remain mindful of the energy in and around your root chakra. You might also internally recite some root chakra affirmations as you’re eating. (You can find links to affirmations for each of your body’s energy centers in the sections below.)

    I’ve added some links in the box below if you want to learn more about your chakra system and the seven main chakras. For an overview on all the chakras, you can check out my post on the chakra colors and meanings here.

    And if you want to learn more about opening, activating, and healing your body’s energy centers, be sure to check out my Ultimate Chakra Healing Bundle. The bundle comes with a Chakra Healing eBook, Chakra Healing Workbook, and 8-Week Chakra Healing Guide. (All items can be purchased individually as well!)

    Healing the Throat Chakra

    Do you remember being in school and the teacher would ask a question, and you were sure you knew the right answer, but something prevented you from raising your hand? It was especially difficult if the question didn’t have a definitive right or wrong answer, like in English when you were asked for your interpretation of what the author of a book was trying to say.

    I think I know, you’d think. But I don’t want to sound stupid.

    These situations don’t only happen in school, though.

    It might happen at work, when you think someone’s doing their task the wrong way but you’re afraid to tell them. Or when you have an idea for how to improve something, but you’re terrified how your idea will be received.

    It can also happen in personal relationships. You’re talking to someone, and the opportunity is right there for you to tell them what’s been weighing on your mind, but you just . . . don’t.

    I think most of us have experienced this type of situation in some capacity at least once (or a million times) in our lives. I know I have. I was impossibly shy when I was younger, terrified to talk to teachers and classmates alike. And as I’ve gotten older, I’ve had a tendency of staying in the background, keeping my mouth closed even when I’ve wanted to speak.

    Learning how to open and heal my throat chakra has been one of my longest self-growth journeys. I spent my life wanting to write, yet for years, I let myself believe that I had nothing important to say.

    So when I finally gathered the courage to start my blog and put myself out there on my social media accounts, to say I was terrified would be an understatement.

    But I felt the fear, and I took that first step anyway.

    Believing that your words and your truth matter is one of the key aspects of healing your throat chakra. When your throat chakra is open and balanced, you’re able to speak clearly and concisely. You’re calm, peaceful, and patient, and you’re as good of a listener as you are a speaker. Additionally, you stay true to yourself and hold yourself with both integrity and authenticity.

    However, if your throat chakra is either underactive or overactive, you may experience deficiencies in these areas. When underactive, you may be excessively shy, withdrawn, and have difficulty expressing yourself. And if overactive, you may be gossipy and have a tendency to interrupt others when they speak.

    You have a limitless amount of potential to offer this world, and having an open and healed throat chakra is key to stepping into your purpose and offering your insights, beliefs, words, and voice to the greater universe.

    And your insights are badly needed.

    Because you have a unique history and perspective, nobody else can think like you. Nobody else can offer what you have to offer.

    So it’s time to release the belief that your words don’t matter and step into the life that’s waiting for you.

    Because you deserve to be heard. You deserve to be seen. You deserve to know that you matter.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    The 30 throat chakra journal prompts below are designed to help you examine your beliefs while getting in touch with your truest, most authentic self. Specifically, these journal prompts center around important concepts like authenticity, guiding principles, communication, and creative expression.

    There’s no right or wrong way to approach these journal prompts. You can read through them and only choose to work with the ones that resonate most with you, or you can choose to answer one at a time. I do always recommend, though, that if you choose to answer just some of the questions, you throw in a few “extra” ones as well. I think that often, once we start writing, we’re surprised by what unexpected discoveries might come up.

    When you sit down to do your journaling practice, make sure you have some time to yourself where you won’t be interrupted or distracted. I recommend at least 15 to 20 minutes (you can potentially answer a few different questions in that time period), but the best amount of time is truly what works best for you. I tend to journal for 30 minutes first thing in the morning after I wake up, and that’s always proven successful for me.

    And most importantly, set the intention to make your journaling time a judgment-free zone. Give yourself unconditional self-love and compassion as you respond to the prompts. The path to healing is paved not in judgment but acceptance. Accept every part of yourself and your story just as it is, and give yourself some extra love and gratitude for showing up today and putting in this work.

    What is the Throat Chakra?

    Located in the center of your neck, the throat chakra is your body’s energy center for communication, authenticity, honesty, and integrity.

    When your throat chakra is open and balanced, you’re able to communicate clearly and effectively. You feel empowered to speak openly and freely, and you deeply understand that your voice and your words are important and powerful. Additionally, you know the importance of give and take in communication, and you’re able to respectfully listen when others are speaking.

    In addition to being the energy center for communication, your throat chakra is the energy center for truth, integrity, and authenticity. This means you do more than just speak; you speak your authentic truth while remaining true to yourself and your guiding principles. Your daily actions also support this, and as you move through your day, you remain aligned with your values and principles.

    In contrast, when your throat chakra is underactive, you may be excessively shy, withdrawn, and/or experience difficulty expressing yourself. With an overactive throat chakra, you may be loud, gossipy, and someone who interrupts others and talks out of turn.

    Your words, ideas, and wholehearted presence matter, and you deserve to know this wholly and unconditionally. That’s why opening and healing your throat chakra is an essential step in your self-love journey.

    Below are 35 powerful throat chakra affirmations to help you open, balance, and heal this important energy center.
