In yoga there are seven energy points in the body referred to as “chakras.” These chakras are believed to be energy wheels that, when in a balanced state, are “open” and aligned. Chakras correspond to areas of our body that affect our emotional and physical well-being. When a chakra is blocked or out of alignment we can experience mental, emotional, and physical symptoms. Each chakra has specific affirmations to help unblock and promote balance in that energy point of the body.
A throat chakra affirmation is similar to a positive affirmation which is an affirmative statement or declaration of an action or intention in its completed state. Specifically, a throat chakra affirmation begins with “I speak” or “I express.” The phrases “I speak” and “I express” are proclaimed to energetically stimulate and assist in unblocking the throat chakra. Our throat chakra is our creative center. It is the place of development for self-expression, communication, creativity, and letting things go. Since our voice is in the throat chakra’s space, we want to make positive affirmations beginning with “I speak” or “I express.”
Some examples of throat chakra affirmations include:
- I speak honesty and truthfulness
- I express my authentic self
For those of us with thyroid related health concerns throat chakra affirmations can be very beneficial for energetic healing. These throat chakra affirmations could be made to be more thyroid specific by starting with the phrase “My thyroid.”
Some examples of thyroid specific affirmations include:
- My thyroid functions optimally
- My thyroid hormones are balanced
If you have thyroid related health concerns then a combination of both throat chakra and thyroid specific affirmations may be best for you.
