My throat chakra is something I have been trying to heal for close to 10 years. As a child I was more on the reserved side and I often held my tongue simply because if you don't have anything nice to say than don't say it at all. I also get embarrassed easily, so when my parents got divorced at the age of 12, I really didn't want to say anything about it to anyone. I didn't want to say how I felt to my parents, because I already knew they were upset. I didn't want to tell my friends why I had two houses. I didn't want to tell people how I felt or what was going on at all. Then my parents transferred me high schools and I had to act happy. I lied to my parents a lot to cover up what I was doing. I lied about liking my friends. I lied about doing well in school. I had literally no idea what I wanted to do with myself. I would lie to my counselors and tell them I would start trying in school. Since I did not originally say how I felt particularly about my parents divorce, I started spiraling and not saying how I felt about literally my entire life.
One time a healer asked me if I had recently had an argument with someone and I said yes. She said she could see a physical collar and chain around my neck and asked me if my shoulders were tense. They were. Not speaking my mind in an argument kept me attached to the past with this argument and this person. I had placed a blockage and burden on myself this healer could see.
So now, fast forward to the age of 23 (this all started happening when I was 12) and I find myself on a reiki healing table with a closed heart and third eye chakra. As the healer began to send their energy through me, my throat started clogging up and I had these vivid visions of my high school, like the physical buildings and hallways. My throat chakra wasn't blocked, so why would my throat start clogging during the healing? Because I still had all those unsaid words and lies lingering in my aura despite having healed from the trauma of divorce and high school. I was at peace but the burdoned energy was still there lingering around my throat simply because these situations made me who I am today.
Physical Signs Of Throat Chakra Imbalance:

Mucus and Coughing
Qualities Of Throat Chakra Imbalance:
Yelling & Argumentative
Lying & Manipulating
Shame is lethal to your throat chakra because shame isolates you.
Someone who lies, manipulates, argumentative or shy all have throat chakra imbalances. The throat chakra can be unbalanced if you manipulate others. At some point in your life you learned to use your speech to get what you want from others. Or someone may have realized their silence speaks louder about their mood than their words can. These behaviors all contribute to imbalances in the throat chakra.
It is important to note that just because someone is private doesn't mean they have an imbalance, but if they are with holding information they may have a blocked throat chakra. A lot of times if there is a miscommunication, argument or unspoken words between people, you will experience pain or clogging in your throat. If you are unable to speak to this person about how you truly feel, writing down your thoughts will help clear this chakra as well. The key to having a balanced and open throat chakra is to over come fear. Fear of what others may think or fears of the repercussions of your words. You need to be able to verbalize your needs, wants, desires, deems and opinions in order to have a thriving manifestation process.
