The Throat or 5th Chakra is all about speaking and hearing our personal truth in the world. There are lots of idioms that convey a blocked Throat Chakra including ‘frog in your throat’ and ‘cat got your tongue?’
For me, the first few months of hosting my radio show, the day before or the day of airing, my throat would start to act up — either a scratchy throat or a post-nasal drip. I started making a habit of lots of self-care around this time, especially watching what I ate and gargling with salt water.
Because of the pattern unfolding, it wasn’t so much a health issue as it was the physical manifestation of an underlying energetic imbalance. My radio show is all about speaking and hearing truth to optimally interact with guests and callers. It was no wonder it was acting up.
