Overall Concept – What is the meaning of this chakra?
The throat chakra is about choice: the concept that every choice we make is an act of power and has a positive or negative consequence. The throat represents the expression of your will – the balance of your emotional and mental intentions.
Problems with this chakra arise from issues with self-expression. For example, lying, gossiping and the inability to express negative feelings or thoughts, opinions and emotional needs.
The challenge of this chakra is to express freely the balance between your personal will (personality) and your higher will (spiritual).
Note: The power of choice relates to all chakras, depending on what is causing the conflict. For example, a lack of authority in relation to a significant other may be linked with the sacral chakra, which pertains to relationships with others. Similarly, dishonesty can relate to the solar plexus chakra which deals with honesty with self.
