The Throat chakra (our fifth chakra) seems to be easily influenced by many people, along with the Solar Plexus, and often these two chakras need more attention to keep them healthy and balanced than the other chakras within the system.
The reason for the sensitivity of the Throat chakra could simply be because it performs many functions, both in the physical body and the etheric or subtle body.
The Throat chakra is the voice of the body, meaning that other chakras often find their expression through the throat, and of course, many of us engage in an almost perpetual internal dialogue throughout our waking hours.
Unfortunately, many of us are not particularly kind to ourselves in our self-talk, often berating ourselves unfairly for the smallest mistake or perceived shortcomings.
All of these factors can take their toll on the Throat chakra so it is essential to take some time to work on bringing it back into balance and harmony with the benevolent energy flow of Universal healing, which is why you might turn to Throat chakra stones for the healing of your throat chakra.
Chakras originated from the Hindu and Tantric Buddhism religions. While we look at Chakras today, it is through a very westernized-lens. Hindu and Tantric Buddhism religions don’t associate crystals, colors, or feelings with the different chakras. If you’d like to learn more about the history of chakras from a non-western perspective, please read here. And while you read through this, please keep in mind that this, again, is from a western yogi perspective.
Properties of the Throat Chakra
The Throat chakra is responsible for our communications with the world, and when there is a blockage or imbalance in this area, we may find that we talk too little or too much.
We may also find ourselves holding back from saying the things we need to say to those around us.
Sometimes this is the result of having been silenced by others either through ridicule of our spiritual beliefs or simply through bullying.
It is vital for your emotional health that you recognize the indicators of a blocked or imbalanced Throat chakra and these often manifest in the area of the neck, throat, ears and upper chest.
Conditions such as thyroid problems, earache, frequent sore throats or mouth ulcers can all indicate an imbalanced Throat chakra.
Taking steps to alleviate these symptoms will help to clear and harmonize the energies of the Throat chakra, allowing you to speak your truth, feel empathy for others and make sound decisions.
Throat Chakra Stones
The easiest way to keep your throat chakra in balance is to wear a necklace or choker made from suitable Throat chakra stone (usually blue and blue-green healing stones).
The following Throat chakra stones all make beautiful jewelry and have different vibrational frequencies, which have slightly different effects. Let’s uncover which healing stones will work best to unblock your Throat chakra.
Lapis Lazuli is one of the best Throat chakra stones for those who get anxious over speaking their minds. The color blue is incredibly soothing, and as Lapis Lazuli is found in shades of vibrant blue, it emits calming vibes.
While calming the wearer, this blue stone will also open, stimulate and balance the Throat chakra so you feel confident with the words you speak.
Do you ever feel like you’re saying too much but nothing coherent is coming out? For some of us, our anxiety manifests in the throat which causes us to speak a mile a minute, unable to collect ourselves. For these people, it’s important to find Throat chakra stones that will balance energy and calm anxiety. For this, I recommend Amazonite.
Amazonite is also a semi-precious stone but tends towards green and turquoise hues rather than deep blue.
It can help to restore emotional balance and dispel negativity.
Amazonite has a soothing vibration that tends to calm anxiety. It is an excellent choice to work with if you feel that you are talking too much but saying too little.
Turquoise is the best Throat chakra stone if you find yourself engaging in negative self-talk. You can use it to restore balance and it will help you bolster self-confidence and guard against damaging self-criticism.
This crystal is often found in larger pieces and can be used as a rubbing stone. Use tumbled stones in pretty containers near your workspace if you work at a desk.
One of my personal favorite Throat chakra stones is Aquamarine. Aquamarine is a gentler stone, often occurring in shades of pale blue and light green. It is said to offer courage, dispel fear, and promote tolerance.
This crystal is known as truth stone and encourages you to have confidence when speaking your truth and in standing up for yourself and others.
Aquamarine is a cheerful crystal that has an uplifting effect on the spirits and makes an excellent gift for anyone who is recovering from a long illness.
Blue Lace Agate
Another popular blue stone to use for your Throat chakra is Blue Lace Agate. Blue Lace Agate is a popular choice for neck jewelry as it carries a comforting, soothing, nurturing vibration. This stone helps to calm anxiety, dispel negativity and restore self-belief.
It occurs in delicate shades of pale blue reminiscent of the color of the sky on a summer’s day.
When used on the Throat chakra the effect can be subtle but powerful. It may help those who are shy or who struggle to be heard by others, which is why Blue Agate is one of our top crystals for friendships. Blue Agate will help you speak your truth and improve your relationships in the process.
Blue Apatite will open your Throat chakra and help you speak in large groups. For those who often do presentations or need to speak during meetings, Blue Apatite will give you the courage to speak eloquently and clearly to everyone in the room.
This blue stone will also open you up to spiritual guidance and give you the courage you need to achieve your goals.
Blue Chalcedony is all about clear communication.
For those who want to find healing crystals to help with self-expression, Blue Chalcedony is the right choice. Blue Chalcedony works to balance and stimulate the throat chakra so you can clearly communicate your ideas.
And if you’re looking to communicate with your spirits and spiritual guides, Blue Chalcedony is the best crystal.
How to use Throat Chakra Stones
As well as wearing any of the above stones as jewelry, you can carry pieces of these beautiful crystals in your pocket or purse.
Meditation with Throat chakra stones are especially effective if you combine them with visualizations of running water.
A particularly helpful meditation for anyone experiencing low self-esteem is to imagine the waves of the sea washing into the chakra and bringing cleansing, positive energies to clear away unwanted thoughts and behaviors.
Imagine the waves crashing onto the beach and taking away all the debris so that it can be transmuted by Source.
As with working on the Third eye it is important to have patience and be gentle with yourself as results are not always immediate.
Imbalances in the Throat chakra often manifest in non-physical ways such as compulsive talking, timidity or shyness.
If you feel that you are prone to dishonesty, or are insensitive to the needs of others, this may indicate that you would benefit from working on your Throat chakra.
It is a common misconception that anyone who tells lies is doing so deliberately and intending to cause damage or distress to others.
Using chakra stones in conjunction with meditations and visualizations can often bring up emotional issues that we are not aware of.
Set a clear intention and call in any Angels or guides that you like to work with. Archangel Michael is one of the best angels to work with on these issues. Ask that any lies you may have told, or be telling now to protect yourself are released from your Throat chakra.
You may feel a little discomfort and a choking sensation when this happens, but it is important to stay with the process as the cleansing and clearing takes place. Request that Michael allows you his protection so that you can let go of the lies or untruths you feel are necessary.
Throat Chakra Healing
The above Throat chakra crystals will help you on your Throat chakra healing journey. To choose the right healing crystals, it’s important to determine what issues associated with the throat you’d like to improve.
Do you have trouble speaking in large groups? Go with Blue Apatite.
Do you perhaps find it difficult to speak concisely? Try Amazonite.
If you need the courage to speak one-on-one with someone, you can try Lapis Lazuli, Blue Chalcedony, Blue Lace Agate, or Aquamarine.
And if you are constantly speaking negatively to yourself, I recommend Turquoise.
Of course, you can choose more than one of these healing crystals to improve your throat chakra! You can also use a chakra wand, which contains stones to heal all of your chakras, making it multi-purpose and incredibly healing!
