The throat chakra is the fifth chakra located at the base of the neck. It can be associated with truth, creative expression, and purity of speech.

Affirmation: I express myself fully and creatively.

Symptoms of an imbalanced throat chakra are shyness, arrogance, gossiping, and poor listening skills. Physically, this imbalance may manifest as throat and ear  disorders. The benefits of a balanced throat chakra are clear communication, effective listening skills, and a good sense of timing & rhythm.
