8 Simple Ways To Balance + Unblock Your Throat Chakra (5th Energy Center)


1. Use Color Therapy To Balance Your Throat Chakra

Underactive Throat Chakra: Surround Yourself With More Blue

The quickest and simplest way to balance an Underactive Throat Chakra (your 5th Energy Center) is to simply wear or surround yourself with more blue.   That can be in the form of clothing, flowers, accessories or furnishings, etc.

By bringing more of the blue color frequency into your world, you will instantly boost your Throat Chakra energies, allowing them to flow in a more balanced way.

Remember, an Underactive Throat Chakra has too little flow of energy flowing through it.  So when we add more blue into our environment or wardrobe, we unleash the ‘communication powerhouse’ of our Throat Chakra.

Blue helps boost self-confidence in all areas of communication. So, be sure to wear more blue if you need help in these areas.

But what if Blue doesn’t suit you?

No worries!  You can still rebalance your Throat Chakra energies even if the color Blue doesn’t suit you.   Simply wear blue as underwear or bring it into your environment via ornaments, flowers or why not drape a blue throw across your sofa or place blue pillows on your bed?

There’s always a way to bring more blue into your world to balance your Throat Chakra, even if it doesn’t suit your skin tone! 😉

Overactive Throat Chakra: Surround Yourself With More Orange

Alternatively if you feel like you’re always overreacting, making ‘mountains out of molehills’, being overly domineering or harsh to others because of an Overactive Throat Chakra then, simply increase the amount of orange within your environment.

That can be in the form of clothing, flowers, accessories or furnishings, etc.

By wearing or surrounding yourself with more orange, you will help calm and rebalance your Throat Chakra energies and help restore balance within your system.

2. Use Stones To Balance Your Throat Chakra

How Do I Choose Essential Oils To Balance The Throat Chakra?

When you shop for essential oils to balance your Throat Chakra be sure to:

  1. Only buy 100% pure essential oils. Therapeutic grade is generally regarded as the best.
  2. Double or even, triple check the botanical names on the label to ensure you purchase the right essential oil for your needs.
  3. If there is no botanical name on the label, do not buy it.

WARNINGS: Some essential oils are not advised to be used by pregnant or nursing women, so ensure you fully research an essential oil before using.  Always read the label and follow directions.

4. Use Foods To Balance Your Throat Chakra

Another effective way to balance, cleanse and heal your Throat Chakra energies is to use specific foods.  The most beneficial foods for balancing the Throat Chakra are those which support the physical processes associated with the Throat Chakra, such as;

What Foods Are Good For The Throat Chakra?

  • Tree-Grown Fruits (such as; apples, pears, peaches, apricots, limes, lemons, grapefruits, plums, etc).
  • Iodine-Rich Foods (such as; kelp, wakame, arame, brown algae, etc).
  • Blue/Black Colored Foods (such as;  blueberries, blackberries, etc. as they correspond to its frequencies of the Throat Chakra).

The Throat Chakra is associated with the thyroid and parathyroid glands.   Therefore, adding iodine rich foods to our diet will not only support the healthy functioning of these glands but also promote the healthy flow of energy within the Throat Chakra area.


If you discover your Throat Chakra is “overactive” (too much excessive energy flowing through it), simply increase your intake of orange foods, such as; oranges, carrots, etc. This will help to calm any excessive flow of energy within the Throat Chakra area.

5. Honesty Is The Best Policy To Balance Your Throat Chakra

Learning to express ourselves honestly and confidently is all part of the journey to activating, healing and balancing our Throat Chakra.

Any repression or rejection of our authentic thoughts and feelings will cause disruptions in the flow of energy to and through, our Throat Chakra.  It will also cause disruptions in the 5th layer of our auric field which can quickly lead to physical dis-ease and illness.  This is why ‘honesty is the best policy’ when we want to balance and heal our Throat Chakra.

Ask yourself;

  • Are you being completely honest with yourself about your feelings regarding a certain situation, person, relationship, living arrangement, career path, etc.?
  • Are you completely comfortable speaking up and voicing your honest opinions and authentic feelings (even, if it may offend others)?
  • Do you speak YOUR truth 100% of the time?

If your answer is no, then be sure to check out this article: Balancing Your Throat Chakra With Authenticity And Honesty to discover how not being honest with ourselves or others, stops us from manifesting our dreams and can even lead to physical illness (esp. Thyroid conditions).


6. Attentive Listening Helps Balance Your Throat Chakra

The Throat Chakra Is Your Communication Centre.

The Throat Chakra is the centre of communication which naturally includes the art of attentive listening.  The Throat Chakra teaches us to listen to the words spoken by others and the words ‘unspoken’ (what’s not being said).

Attentive listening requires us to drop what we THINK others are saying and HEAR what they are actually saying (or not saying). 

So, take a moment right now and ask yourself;

  • Do you find yourself formulating your response in your mind whilst the other person is still talking?
  • Do you ever ‘wander off’ while another person is talking?
  • Do you find yourself nodding and acting “as if” you’re listening, but you’re not?

These are all signs of an imbalance in your Throat Chakra energies.

To begin healing and balancing your Throat Chakra energies start to consciously drop the conversation in your mind and simply listen to what others are saying.

This does NOT mean you have to agree with everything they say but simply listen attentively.   This gives the other person ‘the space’ and respect they need to be open and honest with you, resulting in you creating more meaningful, deeper connections.

It will also help to balance and strengthen your Throat Chakra energies which allows you to manifest your desires faster, as you will start to move in alignment with the higher levels of consciousness.

7. Use Good Vibrations To Balance Your Throat Chakra

The Throat Chakra is associated with self-expression and the vocal chords therefore, one of the best ways to ‘fire-up’ the energies of your Throat Chakra is by using sound to vibrate your vocal chords.  You can easily achieve this by singing, chanting or even, humming.

Play your favourite tunes, sing out loud and clear away all those cobwebs as you rebalance your Throat Chakra!


8. Use Sound Therapy To Balance Your Throat Chakra

हं Haṃ Mantra Benefits:

The sound that resonates with, aligns and helps rebalance the Throat Chakra energies is the ‘seed sound’ which can be found within the Throat Chakra symbol, the bījā mantra: हं Haṃ (Pronounced ‘Hum’).

Chanting हं Haṃ:

  • Helps us tap into our inner voice and express our truth with grace and confidence.
  • Clears the channels between our Throat and higher chakras, so we can tap into higher levels of consciousness.
  • Cleanses blockages between the Heart and Throat Chakra, which helps to keep us safe and grounded when entering higher realms of consciousness.

The Throat Chakra is a very important link for synchronising BOTH body and mind. 

Balancing the Throat Chakra helps to dissolve the division between body and mind that’s been created by societies, cultures and religions worldwide.

Chanting mantras is especially powerful for the Throat Chakra, simply because we’re combining sound and subtle vibrations, which are the very keystones of the Throat Chakra. It’s like bringing all the magic together and the effect is very powerful.

Start chanting हं Haṃ today and experience the tremendous benefits for yourself!
