Healing Notes

The throat chakra is all about expression. It can be hard to express yourself. Sometimes, we have the opposite problem, we talk too much. Either way, one activity that can help either get all what you want to say out or focus what you really want to say is journaling. Start by practicing journaling, express what you want to say. After practicing writing it all out, slowly move to verbalizing all of it.

Singing or even just letting out a scream (ok do it in a way that you do not alarm others that may be in earshot) can really help you with your throat chakra. Check out my video on how to do some throat chakra exercises.
